How to Get the Compensation You Deserve If You Are Injured in a Car Wreck

Thousands of car accidents happen each day in the United States. While not all of them require an attorney, many of them do. Determining whether or not you should retain legal representation can be difficult without a firm understanding of your rights.

At Ajlouny Injury Law, we offer free legal advice for individuals who have been hurt in car accidents throughout New York City. Our experienced lawyers can help you determine whether you should pursue a claim for damages at absolutely no cost to you or your family. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a car crash, contact our office at (718) 233-3913 for a free, no-obligation consultation. 

If any of these apply as a result of the accident, you need to consult an attorney now:

  1. You Are Injured

Undoubtedly, you need to consult with an attorney if you sustained any injuries from the car accident. Medical bills can add up quickly, leaving you tens of thousands of dollars in debt. An attorney can help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve after an auto accident.

It is imperative that you seek medical attention immediately after the accident. Failing to get treatment can affect your right to recovery. New York law allows you to sue an at-fault driver if you suffer serious injuries in a car wreck, but you must prove the severity of the harm. An experienced attorney can use your medical records to show the extent of the damages. 

  1. You Lost a Loved One

In the unimaginable event that your loved one was killed in an auto accident, you need to consult with an attorney. Depending on the situation, you may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim. 

The unexpected death of a loved one can present an unbearable financial hardship. A wrongful death claim can help make sure that the negligent or reckless driver is held responsible and that your family receives compensation to help cover costs related to your loss.

  1. You Aren’t Receiving Full and Fair Compensation

Many people falsely assume that an insurance company will provide full and fair compensation after a car accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies routinely try to downplay injuries and deny valid claims in an effort to get injured parties to settle for less than their claim is worth. If you are not receiving compensation for all of your losses after a crash, you need an attorney.

  1. You Have Significant Damages

If you were involved in a serious auto accident, you likely have significant damages. Your vehicle may be totaled, your injuries may make it difficult to return to work, or you may have chronic pain from the impact. Any time an accident impacts your ability to complete your day-to-day activities, you should consider consulting with a lawyer.

Things to Consider When Hiring an Attorney

Once you have determined that you need an attorney, deciding on which one to retain can be an overwhelming task. Hiring the wrong attorney can directly affect your recovery and prevent you from getting the compensation you need.

Hire an attorney with:

  • Extensive experience handling car accident cases;
  • Proven success through actual verdicts and settlements;
  • A strong reputation in the legal community; and
  • An unwavering commitment to car accident victims and their families.

The attorney you hire should be well-versed in auto accident cases, having recovered six- and seven-figure settlements on behalf of their clients. They should provide you with legal advice at no out-of-pocket expense so that you can make the right decision for yourself and your family.
