Steps to take if you were hit by another driver:
It is important to seek medical treatment immediately, even if you are not taken by ambulance to the emergency room. It can be challenging to discern the severity of your injuries in the aftermath of a sudden collision.
If you are rear-ended by another driver, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and to repair the damage to your vehicle. Even if you were partially to blame for the accident, you might still be able to recover from an at-fault driver.
New York is a no-fault state, meaning that you can recover damages regardless of whether you were at fault. If you sustained a serious injury due to another driver’s negligence or wrongdoing, you might be eligible to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation for your losses.
You have the right to legal representation. In general, if you were seriously injured in a car accident or rear-end collision, it is in your best interest to retain an experienced attorney.
Since New York is a no-fault insurance state, you may be reimbursed up to $50,000 from the insurance company that covers the vehicle you were an occupant in. You must file a claim within the statutory time period to obtain compensation for your losses.
If you were seriously injured, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent driver. An attorney can help ensure that you receive the largest possible recovery. It is essential to act quickly as you only have a limited amount of time to sue an at-fault driver.
