Types of Car Collisions
Car accidents in Brooklyn can occur in a variety of different ways. Some common types of car accidents include:
Rear end collisions
Parking lot accidents
Hit and run collisions or phantom vehicle accidents
Side impact collisions, which usually occur at intersections
Front end collisions, where one vehicle impacts the other vehicle head-on
Filing a Timely Lawsuit
In order to obtain monetary compensation arising out of a motor vehicle collision, any claim or lawsuit must be filed in a timely manner. In the state of New York, this time period is typically two years from the date the accident occurred. If you do not file a lawsuit within that two-year time period, it is extremely likely that you will never be eligible to recover monetary compensation for your injuries. Our skilled Brooklyn car accident lawyers will ensure that your claim or lawsuit is filed on time.
Recovering Damages in a Car Accident Case
Because the State of New York is a no-fault state when it comes to motor vehicle collisions, in the majority of cases, accident victims obtain compensation for their injuries by filing a claim with their own insurance companies. They may be eligible to obtain compensation for all of their medical bills, lost wages, and travel expenses incurred going to and from medical appointments.
At other times, accident victims may be able to file a lawsuit directly against the at-fault driver in a car collision. The accident victim could make a claim against the at-fault driver if he or she suffers permanent injuries in the accident, such as permanent scarring or a bone fracture. Moreover, the accident victim can claim pain and suffering damages from the at-fault driver or the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
