If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, it is important to determine who is responsible and seek legal help as soon as possible. A knowledgeable car accident attorney can help file your claim, gather and submit all necessary paperwork, and investigate your accident, including talking to witnesses, police and the responsible party’s attorney or insurance company. At Jacoby & Meyers LLP, NY, our legal team, led by experienced lawyers, will fight for your rights and compensation, and treat you with compassion during this difficult time.
There are two main types of compensation victims of car accidents can receive: personal injury or wrongful death. Those who suffer injuries such as broken limbs, head trauma, and spinal or nerve damage, and who are as a result temporarily or permanently disabled, are eligible for personal injury compensation. If the victim dies as a result of the accident, their family can file a wrongful death suit against the responsible party.
