New York Car Accident Attorney
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 21,000 people are killed, and approximately 2 million people are injured in passenger vehicle accidents in the United States each year. The primary cause is negligence on the part of the driver, either making an unsafe lane change, speeding, texting, failing to yield the right of way, or due to DUI or other careless or illegal acts.
New York has specific laws complicating claims of crash victims with respect to insurance as well as the recovery of special and general damages. This pertains to matters involving personal injuries and/or wrongful death.
How We Can Help
The lawyers at Bottar Leone, PLLC understand the emotional and financial hardship victims of vehicular accidents may experience in the aftermath of a collision. Both the victim and their families are adversely affected. We have a history of successfully handling car accident cases for our clients throughout the state.
New York’s statute of limitations begins from the date of the accident. If a lawsuit is not timely filed or the claim is not resolved before the time period to file suit, the accident victim goes uncompensated. Therefore, if you were hurt or a loved one killed due to the negligence or carelessness of a motorist, it is imperative that you immediately consult with a lawyer well versed in state law.
