What kind of damages could I seek in a car accident lawsuit?
No two car accidents are exactly alike. The same is true for car accident lawsuits. However, depending on the details of your case, your attorney may be able to help you seek the following types of damages to recover compensation:
Economic damages, which are a portion of a claim or lawsuit that seeks compensation for the following:
– Medical bills
– Lost wages
– Loss of earning capacity
Non-economic damages, which are more complicated to quantify, but are no less important, including:
– Pain and suffering
– Emotional distress
– Loss of enjoyment of life
An experienced car accident attorney in New York City can help you determine which damages you can seek in a car accident suit.
How much does it cost to hire a car accident attorney?
1800-HURT-511’s network of car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means you never pay any upfront fees for legal representation. You only pay a fee if your attorney successfully recovers compensation on your behalf. Contact us to learn more about our attorney fee structure for successful car accident cases.
What should I do if I was hurt in a car accident?
The most important thing to do after a car accident is to immediately seek medical treatment for yourself and anyone else in the vehicle with you, even if you don’t believe you are badly injured. It is also essential to collect contact information from the other driver or drivers involved in the accident, including their name, address, phone number, license plate number, and their insurance provider.
Following the immediate aftermath of the accident, you should contact your insurance company about the accident, document any injuries you sustained in the accident and any damage to your vehicle, and contact an attorney with experience handling car accident cases in New York.
How Will Filing a Lawsuit Improve My Life?
We see firsthand the toll injuries take on individuals and families. The medical bills, lost work time, and diminished ability to live a full and productive life that often accompany a serious injury can be devastating. When somebody else is responsible for harming you, it only adds insult to injury.
A personal injury lawsuit is meant to make the victim whole again. Full and fair compensation for injuries that are no fault of your own can go a long way toward getting your life back to how it was before an accident and ensuring that your family will be provided for. There is also the matter of bringing the negligent party to justice and providing some measure of closure to a regrettable turn of events.
What Does the Lawsuit Process Entail?
After your free case evaluation, our team will determine if Morgan & Morgan is able to take your case. We don’t accept all cases, and if we think you don’t have a case or that another firm is better suited to handle your claim, we’ll let you know.
If you become a client, you’ll meet in person with your attorney and begin the formal process of building the case. You’ll need to share with us any evidence or documentation of the accident and its aftermath. In due time, an attorney will file a legal document with the court that officially starts the lawsuit process.
From that point forward, your lawyer will handle every aspect of the case. You may have to answer questions under oath as part of the discovery process, during which lawyers on either side gather and share information relevant to the lawsuit. There is also a chance that you’ll have your day in court to tell your side of the story if your case goes to trial. Should these steps be necessary, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
The most important thing during this time is for you to rest and recover while we work on your case. That said, we’ll constantly communicate with you about the status of the case, and you’ll always be able to reach us with any questions or concerns. From time to time, we’ll need to reach out to you to clarify certain points. Remember, though, that we work for you. The client has the final say on whether to accept a settlement or to try the case in court. Also keep in mind that you pay nothing for our services unless we recover compensation for you.
Is There Anything Else I Need to Know?
It’s important that you keep records related to your losses. Evidence such as receipts, medical bills, credit card statements, phone numbers of witnesses, and photos and videos of the accident and your injuries are hugely important to your case. Given the time sensitivity of some of this data, it’s also important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
Do not communicate with any person or organization representing the other party. If an insurance company or attorney reaches out to you, politely decline comment and promptly refer them to your Morgan & Morgan attorney, as anything you say could be used to invalidate your injury claim.
Above all, know you are in good hands with Morgan & Morgan. We’re one of the largest and most successful plaintiffs’ firms in the country. Our lawyers are personal injury law veterans, expert negotiators, and, if need be, aggressive litigators. We only accept cases that we think we can win, and we don’t bow to lowball settlements.
It costs nothing to discuss your case with us, and if we recover nothing, you pay nothing.
