Here are some of the questions you may have:
Who do I sue after being involved in an auto accident with an uninsured motorist in NYC?
If you were involved in an auto accident with an uninsured motorist, you may feel unsure of where to turn or how to proceed. Fortunately, the answer to this question is relatively simple: since the other motorist is uninsured, you will file a claim against your own insurance company in the hopes that they’ll reimburse you for the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained. Though it may sound strange to sue your own insurance company, the truth is, this is what your insurance policy is for. Don’t make the mistake of not using it.
Do I need legal representation after a car accident injury?
After sustaining an injury in a car accident, once you receive medical treatment, the most important thing you can do is retain competent legal representation who can help pursue the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled on your behalf. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for insurance companies to lowball those who’ve been hurt, and you’ll need a legal professional in your corner who can fight for every cent you deserve.
How long do I have to contact legal representation?
In New York State, those injured will have three years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury claim, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. When you wait longer than this timeframe, you’ll likely lose your right to sue. Give us a call today so we can start fighting for your rightful compensation.
