NYC Auto Accident Lawyers / New York Traffic Collision Lawyer

New York Traffic Collision Lawyer

Being hurt in a traffic collision is a confusing and traumatizing experience, whether you suffered whiplash and a concussion or a much worse injury, such as a crushed vertebrae. Having an attorney on your side is crucial to your personal injury case. The New York traffic collision lawyers at Cohan Law Firm have assisted thousands of clients over the past decades, and know how to produce results for our clients. As to why you need a lawyer for a successful outcome, read on below.

Accurately Calculate Your Damages

Every personal injury claim starts with calculating the plaintiff’s damages, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, future medical costs, property damage, emotional distress, and more . This process takes many months, as the victim’s outcome is somewhat of a question mark during the initial months of recovery. Even doctors do not have a rock solid idea of how a patient’s broken arm will heal and affect their ability to work, do their hobbies, and care for their children or loved ones. It is easy for unrepresented victims to agree to low settlement offers at this stage, but an attorney will help you hold strong for the much larger settlement offers that will come in the future.

Prove Liability

Proving that the defendant had a duty of care, violated that duty of care by causing the traffic collision, and caused you harm is all part of a successful personal injury claim. It is not enough for law enforcement to simply cite the at-fault driver in the accident report. You need an attorney on your side, arguing in your favor and willing to go the extra mile to produce evidence as to why the defendant is liable.

Knowledge of the Law and Insurance Policies

In order to get what you are truly owed by the at-fault party, you need a lawyer who can pour through the fine print of any applicable insurance policies. You can prove fault all day long in a traffic collision case and still end up with a relatively small settlement if you have not explored the policy limits of all liable parties.

Negotiation and Court Representation

The negotiation process also takes many months, with insurers intentionally dragging their feet in an effort to stall the process and get the plaintiff to settle early. A lawyer will hold strong, demand full and fair compensation, and back those demands up with the threat of a lawsuit and court hearing if the insurance company does not make an effort to negotiate a fair settlement offer.
