VEHICLE ACCIDENT LAWYER NYC

Vehicle Accidents

Our vehicle accident lawyers in NYC understand the hardships that individuals may face following an auto incident. Vehicle crashes can cause severe injuries, such as whiplash, concussions and spinal injuries. In some cases, vehicle accidents can even lead to death. As a result, victims and their families may face considerable financial strain. Accident victims may be forced to leave the workforce for a significant amount of time, causing them to lose essential wages. Severe auto accident-related injuries may also force victims and their families to face high medical bills that may not be covered by insurance.

Fortunately, accident victims may be able to file a lawsuit to recoup compensation for damages when another driver's negligence was the cause of their injury. At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP, we have defended the rights of car accident victims for over 60 years. Our vehicle accident lawyers are committed to pursuing maximum compensation for all of our clients.

What Kind of Vehicle Accidents Do We Handle?

A driver's negligence may be grounds for injured individuals to file a lawsuit regardless of the type of vehicle. Our attorneys handle accident lawsuits for the following:

Car Accidents

Car Accidents

Car accidents can turn your life upside down, leaving you injured, careless and emotionally burdened. When another driver acts in a negligent manner, such as speeding, driving recklessly or driving under the influence, they may be liable for any injuries suffered in an accident they caused. If an insurance company refuses to resolve a claim, then a car accident lawsuit may be necessary to secure the compensation you deserve. Our NYC vehicle accident lawyers fight for the rights of car accident victims.

Taxi Accidents

Taxi Accidents

New York City is home to more taxis than any other city in the United States. Having so many taxicabs is convenient for travelers, but this can also increase the risk of taxi accidents. Incidents involving taxicabs can have tragic consequences for which the cab driver and company can be held responsible. Victims of taxi accidents may have grounds for a lawsuit to recover damages suffered in the incident.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcycle crash often leaves the individual operating the bike with serious injuries. Broken bones, head trauma and amputations are just some of the possible injuries victims may face. A motorcycle injury can not only alter your quality of life, but it can also lead to financial hardships in the form of lost wages or medical treatments. If the motorcycle accident was caused by another vehicle operator's negligence, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit. Our vehicle accident lawyers in NYC have years of experience litigating complex motorcycle accident cases.

Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents

On average, approximately 40,000 truck accidents occur each year, and of those accidents, about 9% result in fatalities. Accidents involving trucks or tractor-trailers can be devastating. The weight of the truck combined with the speed of its travel is a lethal combination, so the results from a truck accident are rarely minor. Our personal injury lawyers are experienced in handling truck accidents and can help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Bus Accidents

Bus Accidents

Due to the size and weight of buses, an accident can leave passengers with debilitating or fatal injuries. For an injured party, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault in a bus accident. Depending on the circumstances, the operator, a bus company, a passenger, a bus manufacturer or even the government (if public bus) may be liable. For example, if the accident was caused due to the driver's negligence or a manufacturing error, injured passengers may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver or the bus company. If you have been injured in a bus accident, do not hesitate to contact our vehicle accident lawyers in NYC.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle Accidents

The damages caused to a bicyclist are typically much more extensive than those suffered by a motorist. Cyclists' injuries often include broken bones, concussions, brain injuries and even paralysis. These damages can permanently alter your life, cause a loss of wages and result in substantial medical bills. If your bicycle accident occurred due to a motorist's negligence, you may be eligible for compensation from the driver and the driver's insurance company.

Ferry Accidents

Ferry Accidents

Ferries are a fairly common mode of transportation in New York City. Accidents involving these large vehicles risk the lives of their operators, as well as their passengers. Ferry accidents can lead to serious injuries and even death. If a ferry accident occurs as a result of negligence on the part of the ferry operator or company, victims may be able to pursue legal action to recoup damages.

Train Accidents

Train Accidents

The high-speed nature of train travel makes accidents involving these vehicles especially dangerous. Train accidents can put operators, passengers and railroad workers at risk for debilitating injuries. Train accident victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the train company or the train manufacturer if the incident was caused by negligence.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accidents

New York is a large city with millions of pedestrians, as well as heavy traffic. As a result, it is not uncommon for pedestrians to be struck and injured by moving vehicles. Such trauma often causes extensive injuries, including broken bones, brain damage and even paralysis. As a pedestrian, you have rights. Injured pedestrians may have a valid lawsuit if the vehicle driver violated any traffic laws.

What Compensation Is Available In A Vehicle Accident Lawsuit?

Our NYC vehicle accident lawyers may be able to recoup compensation for the following:

  • Lost Wages: Vehicle accidents often result in debilitating injuries, which may cause individuals to undergo multiple surgeries and lengthy rehabilitation. As a result, an injured person may be indefinitely forced to leave the workforce. Victims of auto accidents may be able to recoup any wages lost due to their injury in a lawsuit.
  • Medical Bills: The medical bills that follow a serious injury in an vehicle accident may not be fully covered by insurance. As a result, victims who are facing exorbitant medical bills after being involved in a vehicle accident may be compensated for their losses in a lawsuit. Accident victims may be able to recover compensation for any past and future medical bills resulting from their injury.
  • Pain and Suffering: Vehicle accident victims may also be able to receive compensation for any long-term pain and suffering that results from their injuries. Pain and suffering includes but is not limited to constant physical pain and emotional strain.
