Identifying the At-Fault Party and Establishing Liability
Attempts to recover compensation after a car accident falls under the realm of personal injury law. Under this branch of law, we must establish negligence in order to collect damages from the at-fault party.
Toward this end, our legal team will satisfy the following four requirements:
- Duty of Care: Establish that the defendant had a duty of care to take reasonable steps to prevent you from suffering injury.
- Breach of Duty: Show that the defendant breached their duty of care.
- Causation: Establish that this breach of duty caused the car accident.
- Damages: Establish that you sustained physical, emotional, and economic injuries as a result of the car accident
By establishing the above arguments, each of which will be based on irrefutable evidence, we will build a compelling case of personal injury.

Our wrongful death attorneys can help you understand your legal rights to receive compensation in such a scenario.
We will identify all the areas in which you have suffered losses—economic and noneconomic—and include them in a demand letter for the insurer.
Fighting for Your Rightful Compensation
Our legal team will present your demand letter to the insurance company and negotiate for the maximum settlement amount possible. Depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, if the insurer is unwilling to negotiate a fair settlement, we will file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and proceed to represent you by prosecuting your case in a civil court.
Let Us Start Working on Your Case Before Time Runs Out
The statute of limitations under New York law gives you only a certain period of time from the date of your car accident in which to take legal action. Our legal team will stay on top of this and other deadlines to ensure you do not miss out on any opportunities for the compensation you deserve.
