Why Pursue a Long Island Car Accident Lawsuit?
Car accidents can be dangerous, causing property damage as well as injuries to drivers and passengers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, most car accidents happen due to human error. If you have been injured due to another driver’s error or negligence, insurance may cover some of the damages, but it often doesn’t go far enough to provide the compensation you need. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can recover costs including medical expenses and lost wages as well as compensation for emotional damages.
Is it Worth Suing After a Car Accident?
If you’ve suffered significant damages through no fault of your own, it’s likely to be worthwhile to file a car accident lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys can evaluate your case for free to help you determine whether you have grounds for a legal claim.
How Much Can You Get From a Car Accident Lawsuit?
The average settlement in a car accident case is between $10,000 and $30,000, but keep in mind that no amount can ever be guaranteed. Every case is different, and the actual amount you can receive for your claim will be dependent on many factors, including the extent of your injuries and other damages. When you work with an attorney at Parker Waichman, we’ll work to maximize the amount of compensation you receive.
Who Pays in a Car Accident Lawsuit?
Usually, the first party to pay up in a car accident lawsuit is the insurance company of the driver at fault. If the amount of the settlement or jury award is larger than the insurer will cover, then the at-fault driver must pay the remaining amount out of pocket.
