If you were involved in an accident similar to this, make sure you are well. Call an ambulance and the police and if you can, contact a car accident attorney.
It’s best to consult them so you can be sure what steps to take next. Many people aren’t aware that they can seek compensation claims if the accident happened because of a medical condition of the driver.
But if you were injured, or suffered damages to your property, you have the right to seek a settlement. Be sure to seek legal help soon, and not let the time pass by. After the deadline (the New York statute of limitations is 3 years from the date of the accident) you won’t be able to recover your claim.
If you have even the most minor injuries seek medical examination so you can have proof that you got them in the accident. Our team of New York car accident attorneys is here to assist you and review your case for free.
