Determining Fault in Your Suffolk County Car Accident Case
New York is a no-fault insurance state. This means that we will first seek compensation for your damages through your insurance provider. Severe car accidents often lead to life-altering damages that may exceed your maximum allowable coverage. In this case, we will identify the at-fault party and fight for the compensation that you deserve.
Our legal team will identify fault in your Suffolk County car accident case by collecting evidence to demonstrate the following elements:
- Duty of Care: The responsible party held a legal duty of care for your safety and wellbeing.
- Breach of Duty: The responsible party breached that duty through his or her negligence.
- Causation: The at-fault party’s negligent actions caused your accident.
- Damages: You suffered damages.
By establishing these four elements, we will determine who is liable for your damages and then fight for the compensation you deserve.
You Have a Limited Time to File a Suffolk County Car Accident Lawsuit
It is very important to comply with New York’s car accident statute of limitations. There is a limited time in which to file a car accident case. Failing to meet these strict time limits can result in you being ineligible for the compensation that you deserve.
Please keep in mind that generally the best time collect evidence is as soon after the event as possible. For this reason, it is best to discuss your legal options with a Suffolk County injury lawyer as soon as possible.
