Proving Liability in a Huntington Rear-End Crash with Serious Injuries
While many of these accidents lead to minor or moderate injuries, serious rear-end collision injuries are possible. When this occurs, it is unlikely that the personal injury protection (PIP) which is part of the no-fault insurance coverage included in your automobile insurance coverage will be enough to appropriately compensate you for your losses and cover your medical care.
This means we need to gather evidence to prove negligence and liability, showing the other driver caused your accident and injuries. Our attorneys know the types of evidence used to prove these cases. We will investigate what happened and, as may be needed, call in the experts to support your claim. Expert witnesses could include:
- Medical professionals
- Vocational rehab specialists
- Life-care planners
Determining the Cause of Your Huntington, N.Y., Rear-End Collision
We will get to the bottom of the circumstances surrounding your crash and determine the cause, including who violated traffic laws leading up to the collision. Some common reasons for rear-end accidents in Huntington include:
- Speeding, tailgating, and other aggressive driving
- Following too closely
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Texting or other distracted driving
- Road or weather conditions that increase stopping time
You can trust Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. with your Long Island car accident claim and lawsuit. We will seek the financial recovery you need to pay for your care and other expenses while fighting for justice for you.
We Build Strong Cases to Support Appropriate Settlements for Our Clients
The goal of filing a claim or personal injury lawsuit based on a traffic accident in Huntington is two-fold:
- Recovering money to pay for your care and losses
- Holding the negligent driver accountable when possible
To accomplish either of these goals, we must develop a strong case. The sooner our team goes to work investigating the crash and your injuries, the more relevant evidence we will likely have an opportunity to identify and collect. Some steps required to gather evidence become much more difficult – or even impossible – as time passes.
For example, acting quickly will allow us to:
- Canvass for additional witnesses
- Get an accurate survey of the accident scene
- Check for any dashcam or surveillance video of the collision
The sooner you reach out to us, the stronger the case against the other driver could be. In addition, we will have more time to uncover additional expenses and losses you endured because of the collision.
Time Restrictions on New York Car Accident Lawsuits
There are also specific deadlines for filing a lawsuit based on a traffic accident in New York. We must meet the timeline set by these statutes of limitations, or you could lose the right to sue the at-fault driver for your serious injuries. They include:
- A personal injury statute of limitations found in New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214
- A wrongful death statute of limitations under Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1
We will ensure your case meets these timelines as long as you enlist our help early enough to do so. Our team is ready to provide a free consultation about your claim as soon as your injuries stabilize.
