Queens Wrong-Way Accident Lawyer
Driving the wrong way on a road can have disastrous consequences to innocent victims. If you sustained serious injuries caused by a driver who was careless or reckless by driving the wrong way, you are entitled to demand fair and reasonable financial damages for each and every type of injury you sustained- both physical and economic.
New York is a “no-fault” insurance state. That means that while accident victims in New York are entitled to certain benefits for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses regardless of who was at fault, you cannot seek money damages for your physical and emotional injuries unless you can show that your injuries are “serious” in nature. What constitutes a serious injury is set forth in the New York Insurance Law and includes such injuries as:
- A broken bone
- The loss of a limb
- Disfiguring scars
- Significant limitation of use of a part of your body
- Permanent consequential disability
- Inability to perform substantially all of your usual activities for at least 90 out of the 180 immediately following your accident
Even though the no-fault law identifies the above types of injuries that meet the threshold requirements, whether your injuries can be fit within these legal requirements is often a matter of dispute. If you have been injured by someone else’s fault, you need to retain lawyers who have experience fighting to ensure that your injuries meet the serious injury threshold requirements.The lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte have decades of experience building car accident cases that meet this threshold. Call us today at (646) 692-0204 to find out how we can fight for you. We offer a free consultation.
Don’t delay however. There are deadlines that limit your ability to receive benefits and compensation. If you fail to bring your claims within these deadlines you may be forever barred from receiving the benefits and compensation you are entitled to. The sooner you contact the team at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, the sooner we can begin the investigation into the facts and circumstances of your injuries, secure evidence, and build a strong claim for maximum compensation. Let us fight for you so that you can focus on your own recovery.
