Options for Recovering Compensation after an Uninsured or Underinsured Car Accident 

If you have suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver in Long Island, you will have various options for seeking financial compensation. These include: 

Filing a claim with your car insurance company 

The state of New York requires all drivers to carry a minimum of $50,000 Personal Injury Protection insurance coverage. This no-fault insurance is the first recourse for compensation for all parties involved in an accident, regardless of who caused the accident. PIP cover applies even when the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured. However, PIP may not cover all of your damages. 

New York drivers are also required to carry Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage. This is designed to provide additional coverage in instances where the at-fault driver is underinsured or uninsured. The coverage also applies when the at-fault driver flees the scene, such as in the case of a hit-and-run driver.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, then you may be entitled to compensation as a result of the damages you’ve experienced, whether directly through the responsible party, or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will specialize in tort law and focus on winning economic and non-economic damages for their clients, whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can include injuries sustained as a result of dental and medical malpractice, product liability, and assault claims but they more commonly refer to these types of injuries:

Car accidents

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole, or building at no fault of your own. After a car accident, working with a New York personal injury lawyer is an important first step.

Truck accidents

When your truck is involved in a motor vehicle accident because of the recklessness of others. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.

Motorcycle accidents

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help fighting to get fairly compensated for your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Premises liability

An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement, and our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.

Dog bite

Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation will help you recover compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.

Slip and fall

A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property as a result of their negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law

What types of compensation can be received in a personal injury case?

There are several types of compensable damages that can be received including money for lost wages and career change, property damage compensation, health aids, and home rehabilitation to accommodate for the injuries sustained.

If a settlement can not be reached, a law firm will go ahead and commence a personal injury lawsuit, which simply means taking the at fault party to court.

The value of your case depends on multiple factors such as liability, injuries, insurance coverage, venue, medical bills and etc. Here at The Harrison Law Group, P.C., we will evaluate your case and give you the most comprehensive answer as far as what you can expect regarding compensation.
