Who Do I Sue After an Accident With an Uninsured Motorist?

Nobody ever wants to think about being in an auto accident, though unfortunately, almost everyone is involved in at least one in their lifetime. If you have recently been struck by an uninsured motorist, you are most likely wondering about the next step forward. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced NYC personal injury lawyer to learn more about how our firm can help you through the legal process going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have about the weeks and months to come:

What are the most common causes of auto accidents?

Auto accidents consist of car accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, bus and train accidents, and more. That being said, they all have various causes, however, they can most frequently be traced back to driver negligence. Though distracted driving is the most common type of negligence, driving under the influence and speeding are also very prominent forms of negligence. If you have been injured by a motorist doing any of the aforementioned, you are most likely entitled to compensation.

What should I do if I was in an accident with an uninsured motorist in New York City?

Auto accidents are stressful enough as is, and when you are injured in an auto accident with an uninsured motorist, you may be unsure you to proceed. Fortunately, we can help. Those with uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage can actually file a claim against their own insurance companies. As long as the injured person and their attorney can prove the uninsured motorist was negligent, they should be able to recover the compensation they deserve. However, you must not make the mistake of trying to go it alone. Our firm can effectively gather valuable evidence on your behalf, including security camera footage of the accident, medical documents, witness testimony, and more.

How long will I have to sue an uninsured motorist in New York City?

The wrongfully injured generally have three years from the date of their accident to sue a negligent motorist. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. If you wait any longer than three years from the date of your accident, you will most likely lose your right to sue. Do not let this happen. We are ready to fight for your rights today.
