Proving Your Right to Compensation
The state allows you to seek compensation if you prove the at-fault driver was negligent. To establish their negligence, our legal team focuses on showing how the distracted driver:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Breached his or her responsibility
- Caused the collision with his or her actions
- Caused your damages in the collision
We will listen to your version of the events that led to that accident to determine if these legally required case elements are present. Then, we will use the car accident report and other evidence to prove the other driver was distracted by texting and caused the collision.
The Evidence We Collect for You
When we build the evidence file, our goal is two-fold—to include items that prove your right to recovery and the financial damages you suffered. To meet that goal, we build a case file that includes:
- Medical records
- Proof of income
- Car accident report
- Photos and video
- Witness statements
Our team will compile these items for you. Because this evidence comes from a wide variety of sources, it might be challenging to do so on your own. With our support and direction, you are able to focus on getting better while we focus on building a strong case.

Do not Wait to Start Seeking Compensation
The state has a statute of limitations, or filing deadline, that you must comply with when filing a car accident lawsuit. Failing to comply with the statute of limitations will result in an inability to compel the at-fault driver to compensate you. With sufficient notice, our team will ensure you comply with the statute of limitations.
Car Accident Statutes of Limitations
There is a limited time to file a lawsuit if you suffered damages in an accident. You also have a limited time to file if someone you love passed away in a car accident.
- The personal injury statute of limitations is defined in New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules (CVP) §214.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations found in Estates, Powers & Trusts (EPT) §5-4.1.
There might be additional circumstances that change the general timeline. Our team will inform you if the age of any passengers or any other relevant factors alter your lawsuit’s timeline.
Why Time is of the Essence
Many factors make it crucial for you to act before the statute of limitations expires. In addition to removing the risks of filing the lawsuit too late, getting our team involved early means we have the ability to:
- Thoroughly investigate your case
- Collect smartphone and dashcam videos
- Search for nearby surveillance footage
Early intervention also means we are able to locate and interview witnesses while their memories are fresh. In short, the earlier our team is involved, the more time we have to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
