What should I do if I get in a car accident in New York?
Accidents can be complicated and dangerous. In the immediate aftermath, it's important to get to safety and seek help. Request immediate medical attention if necessary and notify law enforcement. The police can help you write an official report, which will almost definitely come in handy if you pursue a personal injury settlement.
If you're able, you might want to collect photo evidence of the crash, road conditions, and traffic signs, as well as witness statements and other relevant documents.
What is the average settlement for a car accident in New York?
Car accident settlements tend to vary widely, since some factors may be out of your control—such as how large the auto insurance policy is of the car that hit you. While 75% of personal injury cases settle for less than $30,000, some car accident claims may reach millions of dollars. Your attorney will help you value your case based on your medical expenses and the facts of the incident.
Is hiring a car accident lawyer in New York necessary?
No, it is not strictly necessary to hire a New York car accident lawyer. However, many car accidents can result in significant property damage and medical expenses. This may entitle you to a cash settlement to compensate you for lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
In these cases, an experienced team of New York auto accident attorneys can streamline the claims process and maximize your chance of receiving fair support—so that you can focus on your recovery.
How much does a New York car accident attorney from Mighty's network cost?
Cases that settle directly come with a pre-suit fee of 33% or less of the final settlement amount. Cases that go to trial have a post-suit fee of 40% or less. And, if you are referred to an attorney through Mighty Law, in many cases your fees will be 10% less than the industry average. And yes, you only pay if you win.
What does the process of working with a lawyer from Mighty's network look like? How do I get started filing my claim?
Simply reach out to us for a free initial screening. If we—or our network of New York car accident lawyers can help—you'll sign a retainer agreement which will specify that you only have to pay if you win your case.
You'll then work with a legal team, who will help you gather documentation. At the same time, they'll help you find and pay for any necessary medical treatment related to your accident. Once all of the necessary paperwork is on file, your team will assemble your claim and file a demand letter with the insurance company.
Most cases reach a settlement after the demand process, but if yours doesn't, your lawyer will help you file a lawsuit.
How long will it take to investigate a car accident claim in New York?
From the moment you begin working with your lawyer, they'll do everything possible to get you the support you deserve. In the background, your team will be collecting the police report from your accident and any other video or witness evidence from the scene.
Your team will monitor your medical treatment, collect the medical treatment records once your treatment is complete, and file a notice with the insurance company.
What happens once my car accident case is settled?
If you've agreed to a settlement, your New York car crash attorney will give you a “settlement statement” which shows the total (or gross) settlement, and the bills of anyone who helped you during your case that you deferred payment to until the settlement was reached.
This typically includes your lawyer, doctors, and finance companies, if you took out a settlement advance. You'll then receive everything that's left (the net amount) after these bills are paid.
