What You Should Know About Memorial Day Car Accidents

Though Memorial Day is generally a day of celebration, the sheer volume of traffic often leads to serious auto accidents. If you are injured in a car accident this Memorial Day, you will most likely require financial compensation to help you heal. That’s where we come in. Please continue reading and reach out to our knowledgeable New York City personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of car accidents?

Car accidents can be caused by a wide variety of factors, such as poorly designed roads, bad weather conditions, and more. However, most car accidents can be traced back to driver negligence, such as distracted or drowsy driving. On Memorial Day, in particular, many accidents are caused by those who choose to drive while under the influence of alcohol. Regardless of the type of negligence, if you were injured due to another motorist’s carelessness, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for financial compensation.

Can I sue if I have been injured in a car accident?

With the help of an experienced New York City personal injury attorney, you should be able to hold the person that caused your accident accountable. Our firm will work to uncover various valuable forms of evidence, including surveillance footage of the accident occurring, witness statements, pictures of the accident and its aftermath, medical documents detailing the origin and extent of your injuries, and more. We know how devastating the effects of a serious accident can be, which is why we are ready to fight, tooth-and-nail, for the compensation you need.

How long do I have to sue after sustaining a car accident injury?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is, generally, three years, giving the wrongly injured three years from the date of their car accident to sue the party responsible for their injuries. If you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve and need. All you have to do is ask.
