Many people around the country and especially in NYC have been following the news story regarding the Wal-Mart truck that hit actor and comedian Tracy Morgan and others, leaving Morgan seriously injured and causing the death of one of his friends. In the latest update to this story, both Morgan and many others were shocked to hear that Wal-Mart is actually attempting to blame Morgan for his injuries, rather than the truck driver, stating that Morgan would not have been so seriously injured if he had been wearing a seat belt.
While that might be partially true, personal injury attorneys in NYC know that this is essentially a tactic many insurance companies and corporations often try in order to avoid having to pay out a large settlement. While such actions are reprehensible, New York personal injury lawyers also know that these tactics are often employed quite often, and many who do not seek legal representation often wind up receiving a very small settlement for their injuries, and even sometimes no settlement at all. That’s why it’s always advisable to consult with a personal injury attorney after an accident specially when dealing with large corporations that can afford to waste your time and try to bully you into accepting a very poor settlement.
The best personal injury attorneys in NYC won’t accept a poor settlement, and will help you get what you rightfully deserve. They will take into consideration not just the extent of your immediate injuries, but also how those injuries might affect you in the future and if you will require any ongoing treatment. Lost wages, lost benefits, and other factors will also be considered, as well as pain and suffering, mental stress, and more, ensuring that you are well compensated for an accident caused by a reckless or negligent driver.
