Everyone knows Automobile Accidents can cause painful injuries.  Many accident victims require expensive medical treatment.  Next, they face months or even years of recovery.

Winning Lawsuits for Automobile Accidents in NY Courts

A successful auto accident plaintiff needs to establish several elements to prevail in a lawsuit.

  1. The Defendant owed a duty of care to the Plaintiff.
  2. The Defendant breached that duty by acting in a negligent manner.
  3. Plaintiff was injured as a result of the Defendant’s negligence.
  4. The Plaintiff sustained damages as a result of the injury.

This blog reviews and explains each element with a selection of real world examples.  As shown, negligence and liability are sometimes clear, but at other times may be hard to pin down.

We encourage victims of automobile accidents to familiarize themselves with all four elements of a winning personal injury lawsuit.

Highway Automobile Accident Lawsuits

Drivers, passengers and pedestrians hurt in automobile accidents have the right to file a claim for compensation. But don’t delay.  In most New York cases, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the date of the accident.

Every motor vehicle case is different.  An unlimited number of factors can effect the outcome from case to case.  Therefore, each case should be promptly reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney.  This important first step helps ensure the claim is handled correctly from the start.
