Automotive Accidents

Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced in late 2010 that traffic deaths in the United States were at their lowest levels since 1950, nearly 34,000 individuals still lost their lives and 2.2 million individuals were injured in 2009 as a result of an auto accident. Assessing liability and determining fault in auto, motorcycle, and tractor-trailer accidents is imperative when a driver, passenger, other motorist, or pedestrian is injured or killed.

Early investigation is critically important to the successful resolution of an auto accident case. All too often, lawyers who claim to be experienced in representing auto accident victims do nothing during the crucial time immediately following an accident. They neglect to perform even the most rudimentary review. Our firm and our vast array of experts investigate each auto accident case immediately after being retained. We locate witnesses and obtain their statements. We take photographs of the scene and the respective vehicles as soon as possible, and retain an accident reconstructionist when necessary. We research how much insurance each of the respective vehicles has and whether there are any excess or umbrella policies available to afford additional coverage. We leave no stone unturned and vigorously protect the rights of our injured clients, ensuring they get the results they deserve and the compensation they are entitled to.

Hiring an experienced auto accident attorney is essential to the awarding of financial compensation. If a family member was killed or you or a family member has been injured in an auto accident, call 212-539-1800 today for a free, no obligation consultation.
