COVID-19 NOTICE: OUR FIRM REMAINS FULLY OPERATIONAL AND READILY AVAILABLE DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.
At Levine and Wiss, our car accident lawyers understand what victims are up against when they have been hurt. We know how hard it is to focus on your health while you are worried about paying your bills, getting back to work, and taking care of your family.
When negligence causes your injuries, trying to collect compensation from the negligent party can be a daunting task, especially when you are still trying to recover. At Levine and Wiss, our New York car accident lawyers can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Our personal injury lawyers have over 40 years of combined experience. This experience includes previous insurance defense work, giving our Long Island car accident lawyers unique insight into personal injury work. Whether you have an injury in Nassau County, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Suffolk County, NYC, Staten Island or other area of New York, we can help.
We have an edge, creating strategies that work well against insurance companies that seek to minimize the compensation you receive. At Levine and Wiss, our car accident lawyers can help you obtain damages that fairly compensate you for the full value of your financial, physical, and emotional injuries.
According to state law, N.Y. Civ. Prac. R. $ 214, in the State of New York, you have exactly three years from the date of your accident to file an injury claim. If you miss this deadline by even one day, you will not be able to file a compensation claim, despite being seriously injured.
When you have been involved in a car accident, you must begin working to protect your rights as soon as possible. Why? Because the other parties’ insurance companies will be working to protect theirs. You might get a phone call from “the other side” almost immediately, possibly doing something that seems fairly straightforward, like gathering some basic information.
Beware: In reality, from the moment they learn of an auto accident, the insurance companies will begin strategizing ways to avoid responsibility and the need to provide you with compensation.
One of these strategies might include prolonging the process, which could result in you missing important deadlines. To protect your legal right to pursue all claims, you should have representation; lawyers working on your behalf to ensure the statute of limitations does not expire before you have the opportunity to pursue a personal injury claim. I would add something more about time limits particularly the 30 day limit to file a NF app.
At Levine and Wiss, our lawyers use our experience and skill to help those who have been injured accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles or any other motor vehicles. We work tirelessly to help victims of car accidents collect the maximum compensation the laws allow.
Although every accident is different, we tend to find that our clients who get hurt in motor vehicle accidents have some of the following injuries:
The range of injuries people sustain in New York car accidents is endless. Some of them cause their victims and their families a lifetime of pain and suffering. Compensation won’t make the injuries disappear, but it can help cover the costs of treatments and other burdens victims face.
Injuries from accidents are not only physical.
There can be substantial financial injuries as well when you are injured in a car accident, especially if you are the primary breadwinner. It doesn’t take long for bills to pile up while you are in the hospital. You can lose wages if you miss work tending to your injuries. You might be unable to return to work for the foreseeable future (or forever).
The combination of lost wages and increased medical expenses, and unpaid bills, can put a family on the precipice of financial ruin.
Our New York car accident lawyers work hard to help families rocked by car accidents, secure the maximum compensation the laws allow. Your financial recovery can include payments for things such as:
Part of our job is to ensure you are not pressured into settling for less than you deserve. We can help you stand up to insurance companies that try to push car accident victims into accepting “low-ball” settlements.
