Types of Car Accidents

There are many different ways that you or a loved one can get injured in a car accident. However, the most

Rear-End Crash:
Rear-End Crash:

A rear-end collision is an accident that happens when one car strikes the back of the car in front of them. In some instances, a series of rear-end collisions can happen in a row and cause a multiple car pileup. Although many factors can contribute to rear-end crashes, most involve speeding, distracted driving, or slick road conditions. A rear-end collision can put you at risk of some serious injuries.

Rollover Accidents:
Rollover Accidents:

A rollover accident is when a car tips over, and either lands on its roof or continues to roll. Depending on the speed, the slope of the surface, and a variety of other things, the car may continue to roll before coming to a stop after turning over multiple times. Regardless of how many times the vehicle rolls during the accident, these types of crashes can cause serious harm to everyone inside the car, and possible death.

Head-On Collision:
Head-On Collision:

A head-on collision between passenger vehicles is when two vehicles are traveling towards each other and hit head-on. They are one of the most dangerous types of car accidents and are often fatal. Some of the most common causes of these types of accidents are drunk driving, distracted driving, or fatigued driving. In other situations, these accidents are caused by someone getting onto the wrong side of a highway, or going the wrong way down a one-way street.

Hit And Run Accidents:
Hit And Run Accidents:

A hit and run accident takes place when a car or truck hits another vehicle, a motorcycle, a bicycle rider, a pedestrian, or even property, and then leaves the scene of the accident without following the proper steps, such as exchanging insurance information and waiting for police to arrive and fill out a report. When a driver leaves the scene of an accident without following these steps, it is a crime.

Left-Turn Accidents:
Left-Turn Accidents:

A left-turn accident happens when a vehicle is at an intersection—either three or four ways—takes a left turn into oncoming traffic, and is struck by an oncoming vehicle.

How Are Car Accident Lawsuits In NY Different Than In Other States?

An important distinction between car accident lawsuits in New York versus other states is that New York is a “no-fault” car accident law state, which means that regardless of who was at fault for the accident, drivers are paid out by the insurance company after their accident. That is why it is mandatory for all motorists in New York to hold a liability insurance policy that includes $50,000 in “no-fault” insurance.

Even though New York is a “no-fault” state, it is still essential to contact an attorney after your accident. An experienced attorney can help you adhere to the strict deadlines and complex rules surrounding car accidents in a “no-fault” system, and will ensure that you are receiving the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries.

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
– Disfigurement
– 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.

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.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Car Accident Attorney?

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.

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
