NYC Auto Accidents
Whether you’re in a car, walking or on your bicycle, a car accident can result in serious physical injuries and costly hospital bills. No one enjoys sitting in a hospital bed all day, and we know your day gets even worse once you get the bill in the mail.
We at Fisher Stone are here to make sure you understand your rights. We've worked with people in the insurance industry before, and trust us, we'd rather deal directly with them than let them take advantage of you.
Do I Need a NYC Personal Injury Attorney?
The question often arises as to whether or not auto accident attorneys are actually necessary in many situations. While attempting to not talk ourselves out of a great client, we will note that there are some instances where a personal injury attorney might not be necessary.
If you’re involved in a minor fender bender with no injuries or your car was unoccupied when it was hit, it’s likely that you can get fair reimbursement on your own through the insurance company and repair shop. It is worth noting, though, that some car accident injuries take weeks to develop symptoms. If you accept a settlement prior to this, you could be left out in the cold if medical bills start to stack up later.
The moral of the story is that you should contact an NYC personal injury lawyer if you’re involved in an auto collision. This will ensure you don’t make costly mistakes, and if you end up not needing an injury attorney, at least you’ll sleep soundly knowing you got justice.
Avoid Costly Auto Injury Mistakes
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you need to contact an attorney before ever speaking with an insurance company. Insurers are in the business of making money, and the more they pay you for your injury, the less money they’re going to make. Here are just some of the issues you may face with an insurance company:
- You accidentally accept blame (minimizes compensation)
- Adjuster fails to return calls in timely manner
- Company acts in bad faith to avoid payout
All of these issues can result in you receiving less compensation than you deserve. This means you may end up paying medical bills and prescription costs out of pocket, and if you’re unable to work due to the accident, this could easily lead to bankruptcy and a lack of appropriate care. You need a car accident attorney who works for you – not an adjuster who works for the insurance company.
