Experienced Car Accident Attorneys
An increasing number of people are choosing to forgo public transportation for their own personal means of transport. This includes residents in the outer boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. This increase in vehicular traffic can increase the chances of car accidents. Fortunately, Leav & Steinberg LLP has the experience necessary to represent you or your loved ones in the event of an accident.
New York Car Accident Lawyers
Our lawyers will work diligently to help you prepare for your case. As the client, it is important to keep in mind that documenting a serious injury is something that the law requires you to do. Those responsible for accidents will often make a motion before the trial to ask that the case be dismissed. Our attorneys face these motions often and have won nearly every motion we have faced. That is because we understand the law and can make sure our client is properly documenting his or her serious injuries in a manner that will be compelling not just to a jury but to a judge who may face such a motion.
Do You Have a Case?
One of the single most important factors, in any case, is evidence. To help strengthen your case, you should seek medical treatment, obtain proof of your evaluation results, file a police report, and take pictures of your injuries and vehicle damage. To further determine the legitimacy of your case, you should also ensure that your injuries actually qualify for a lawsuit. According to Section 5102(d) of the Insurance Law, a lawsuit should only be filed if one of the following injuries has been sustained:
- Fracture to a bone
- Significant cosmetic scarring
- A significant limitation of a body function or system
- Permanent consequential limitation of a body system or member
- A medically determined injury that impairs one from performing all of their usual customary daily activities for at least 90 out of the first 180 days
