What To Do If You Get Into In An Accident In New York City

If you’re reading this right now, it means 1 of 2 things. Either you or someone very close to you has been involved in an accident in New York City. Now, I know how you might be feeling, stressed, overwhelmed, and worried. There’s a lot that’s about to happen. You might be thinking, “How could this have happened to me? What happens if my loved one can’t work? What if I can’t work? Who’s going to pay the hospital bills?” because you know hospital bills are very expensive.

As an attorney, I’m about to give you some tips and tricks on what you should do after an accident. But before we get there, I just want you to know, this isn’t your fault. Accidents happen all the time, and sometimes there’s just no way to prevent them. Especially living in a big place like New York City. I mean, hey, it’s even happened to me. Remember, people get into car accidents all the time. No one’s perfect…

Today, I’m going to share something with you, some good news and some bad news. I’ll start off with the bad news. The bad news is, as soon as you get into an accident, the insurance company is going to do everything they can to not get you compensated. We see it all the time. An accident happens, people get injured, and the insurance company assembles a team right off the bat.

Now, let me give you the good news. The good news is you have nothing to worry about if you’re working with an attorney. An attorney’s office for a personal injury case will charge nothing upfront. They won’t try to screw you over, and you’ll make some money out of this mess.

So, you might be wondering, “What’s the catch?” Well, let me give you an example of what you’re about to go through. In short, what happens is a law office opens up a no-fault claim, opens up a bodily injury claim, collects all of your medical records, submits a demand packet, and if we’re not able to settle, we sue the parties at fault.

Now, if you think that you’re at fault, don’t worry about that. I recommend you speak to an attorney so he makes a conclusive decision of who is really at fault. Because in New York, we have a comparative negligence state, which means we could split fault amongst parties and still have a claim against the other parties.

In a broad sense, that’s really how it works. You really have nothing to worry about if you are communicating with an attorney. A good attorney will take care of everything step by step. Don’t forget, we’re on your side. It’s us against them. So anyway, whether you decide to work with me or a different lawyer, that’s okay.
