How Do You Tell Who’s Liable in a Car Accident?
Accidents happen as fast as they’re over. It may seem like it’s difficult to determine who is responsible for the accident. However, our car accident attorneys in Brooklyn are experienced in finding the liable party by proving the four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care: The liable party owed you a duty to act with reasonable care to avoid harm.
- Breach of duty: The liable party violated the duty of care by performing a negligent act or failing to perform actions that would protect others from harm.
- Causation: As a result of the violation of the duty of care, you suffered injuries.
- Damages incurred/ Injuries suffered: You must have suffered financial and non-financial losses as a result of your injuries.
We’ll use the evidence from your accident to prove these elements to the insurance company and any other opposing parties. Most lawyers may have a team of investigators collect the evidence, but our lead attorney, Darren T. Moore, is invested in your success, so he takes it upon himself to collect the evidence.
When the attorney representing you collects the evidence themselves, you have a great advantage. Not only does it demonstrate the pride that we have in taking care of our clients, but it also helps us build a strong case for you.
New York’s Statute of Limitations
You have a limited time to file a personal injury claim after a car accident in Brooklyn. According to New York Civil Practice Law & Rules § 214, you have three years to file a claim against the negligent party. However, if your claim involves the City of New York or MTA/NYCTA the statute of limitations is even shorter to file a lawsuit.
It is important to speak with an attorney right away to make sure your rights are protected. A Brooklyn car accident attorney can tell you how long you have to file a lawsuit after the crash so you can skip the confusion.
Regardless of what your deadline is to file, you must file within it. If you fail to do so, you won’t be eligible to recover compensation.
Common Injuries in Car Accidents
In a car accident, you’re likely to sustain anywhere from mild to severe to catastrophic injuries. Some of the most common injuries you could suffer are:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Accidental amputation
- Soft tissue damage
- Shoulder, knee, and joint injuries
After you suffer injuries, you should seek medical help immediately by going to the Hospital or an Urgent Care. By getting a diagnosis from a doctor, you can take care of any injuries that may or may not be visible to the eye.
