HEAD-ON COLLISIONS

Our auto accident attorneys in NYC know that head-on collisions can have devastating consequences for all individuals involved. These types of car accidents can result in debilitating injuries and are fatal in some cases. In addition to suffering serious injuries, victims of head-on collisions may be forced to face financial hardships. A head-on collision can cause individuals to miss significant time at work, face high medical bills and result in lasting physical and emotional pain. Fortunately, New York State law allows individuals who have suffered injuries in a head-on collision to file a lawsuit to recoup compensation for damages.

Individuals who have been injured in a head-on collision should seek the counsel of an experienced auto accident attorney. At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP, our car accident lawyers realize that a head-on collision can drastically change the lives of the individuals involved. As a result, we pursue maximum compensation for all of our clients.

Why Should You Hire An NYC Auto Accident Attorney After A Head-On Collision?

The steps toward being properly compensated following a head-on collision can be complicated. Hiring a lawyer can help simplify the process. A skilled attorney can file the complicated paperwork necessary for a lawsuit, work with the insurance companies and help ensure that victims are not taken advantage of. A lawyer can be especially helpful to car accident victims with the following:

  • Filing A No-Fault Claim: In New York, victims of car accidents may be eligible to have their insurance pay for all reasonable and necessary medical expenses. Furthermore, accident victims may be able to receive compensation for lost wages up to $2,000 a month. In order to receive compensation, however, victims must file a no-fault claim within 30 days of the accident. These claims can be complicated and difficult to understand. An attorney can help simplify the process by filing the no-fault claim for them.
  • Determining Liability: Fault in New York car accidents is apportioned. This means each party's fault is determined out of 100%. A skilled auto accident attorney can help prove that a victim had no-fault or a significantly lower percentage than the other party involved in the accident. The lower percentage of fault apportioned, the more compensation the victim may be entitled.
  • Proving Serious Injuries: Individuals who have been injured in a head-on collision cannot file a lawsuit unless their injury breaks the "serious injury threshold." While some serious injuries are obvious, many other injuries lie in a legally gray area. Hiring a successful car accident lawyer capable of proving serious injury can be the key to victims being properly compensated.

Our NYC Auto Accident Attorneys Will Help Expedite the Legal Process

Due to the statute of limitations, it is important that individuals who have been injured in a head-on collision seek legal counsel as soon as possible. The statute of limitations is a law which limits the amount of time that the victim has to file a lawsuit after an accident. In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit against private entities is 3 years. The statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit against municipalities is a year and 90 days – provided a notice of claim is filed within 90 days of the accident. Additionally, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit after a head-on collision is 2 years. Our NYC auto accident attorneys handle all of our clients' claims in a timely manner. We ensure that all claims are filed before the statute of limitations expires and will file our clients' notice of claim when necessary.
