If you are injured in a car accident, several important questions may be running through your head. You may be wondering what you should do next, how you will pay your medical expenses and whether you may recover compensation from the driver responsible for the accident.
The good news is when these accidents occur due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be fully compensated for any losses you suffer as a result. Since these are complex cases that can be difficult to resolve, be sure that you have a qualified personal injury attorney with the ability to protect your interests.
At Orin J. Cohen Law, I represent injury victims on Staten Island, in Brooklyn and across New York City. I have more than 30 years of experience obtaining favorable results for car crash victims.
Aggressive Representation In Every Kind Of Auto Accident Claim
No matter what type of auto accident you were involved in or what type of injury you may have suffered, you can rely on me to pursue every available option in an effort to secure the best available outcome on your behalf. I conduct thorough investigations so that I can present the most compelling possible case in support of your claim for damages.
I have successfully represented clients in cases involving all types of car accidents, including:
Rear-end accidents — Rear-end accidents often cause whiplash or severe brain injury.
Head-on collisions — Head-on collisions are among the most serious types of car accidents, often resulting in severe injuries or death.
T-bone accidents — This type of car accident often results from a negligent driver making an unsafe left turn or running a stop sign or red light.
Rollover accidents — Rollover accidents often involve vehicles with a high center of gravity, such as a SUV or pickup truck. In such cases, you may be entitled to recover compensation from the negligent driver or, if there was a design flaw in your vehicle that made it prone to rollovers, the manufacturer of your car.
Drunk driving accidents — Responsible for approximately one-third of traffic deaths in the United States, drunk driving also is a significant cause of car accident injuries.
Hit-and-run accidents — It may be more difficult for victims to get compensation in hit-and-run accidents. However, I will work with police to locate the responsible party and, if necessary, help you obtain compensation from your insurance provider.
Injuries to passengers — If you are injured as a passenger, you are entitled to fair compensation. I will work on your behalf to resolve the complicated insurance issues that often result.
Uninsured/Underinsured motorist claims — If you are injured by an uninsured/underinsured driver, you may be entitled to recover compensation under your insurance policy.
Defective road design — Sound roadway design and regular maintenance are vital in ensuring roadway safety. If you were injured because of negligent road maintenance, obstructed signage, defective traffic control devices or other roadway flaws, I will work to hold state and local governments accountable.
Road construction accidents — Road construction crews have a duty to act in a safe manner to avoid accidents or injuries. If you are injured because of crew negligence, you are entitled to recover the losses you sustained because of the accident.
These and other types of car accidents have many causes — everything from poor driving conditions because of bad weather to driver inattention or negligence. Additionally, these accident types range in complexity as to who is responsible for the accident. In some cases, several parties may potentially be held liable for the accident.
Steps To Take After A Car Accident
Even injuries that appear minor can be serious. Sometimes injuries do not appear for days or weeks after an accident. After any car accident, make sure you get medical attention. It is important to get evaluated by a medical professional, even if your injuries seem minor.
Gather photos of the scene if possible. Photographic evidence will help document the circumstances surrounding the crash.
Get a copy of the police report. The police report will also contain important information, including the names of the parties involved.
