What Does Compensation Cover in a Car Accident Case?

Unfortunately, we see devastating accidents here in New York City every single day. Most commonly, these accidents involve motor vehicles. If you were recently injured in a car accident, you may now require financial compensation to heal. That said, for this reason, you likely are wondering whether compensation can cover the full extent of your injuries and the other damages you’ve incurred. Please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated Manhattan car accident attorney from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about car accidents and the compensation you may receive for one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What does financial compensation cover when it comes to car accident cases in New York City?

The first part of financial compensation is that it should cover the economic cost of your injuries or at least a portion of it. This means that the compensation should help you pay for any medical bills you’ve incurred as a result of your accident and the cost of any wages you lost from being unable to return to work after your accident. That said, compensation is also designed to help you with the non-economic damages you’ve sustained, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and more. Of course, money doesn’t directly compensate someone for intangible damages such as pain and suffering, but it can help a person get a sense of justice and begin to put the pieces back together.

How do I ensure I receive compensation after sustaining an injury in a car accident in NYC?

To maximize your chances of recovering compensation, you should attempt to document the accident as it happened, such as by taking the following steps:

  • Calling the police
  • Getting witness contact information
  • Taking pictures of any damage caused by the accident
  • Keeping medical documentation/bills associated with your injury
  • Taking any other step that you believe may help you prove you were injured as a direct result of the other party’s negligence
