Our Attorneys Give Car Accident Victims A Voice
On average, more than 200 New Yorkers are injured every day in motor vehicle accidents. The streets of New York City are so busy that even the most careful driver or alert pedestrian can be involved in an accident as a result of another driver’s carelessness or recklessness.
As common as it is to come upon a crash scene or hear the sirens, nothing prepares you for the shock and pain when it happens in your own life. At Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm, we work closely with victims of auto accidents and their families to understand the impact that an accident has had.
We draw on more than 70 years of collective experience in personal injury litigation to ensure that every resource available is used to help our clients receive compensation for every aspect of damage they have suffered as a result of an accident.
Recovering Compensation After A Car Accident
Accidents involving motor vehicles are among the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States each year. The aftermath of a car accident in New York can cost you thousands of dollars in damages and medical expenses as well as impact your future health and well-being. A New York City car accident attorney at our firm can help you recover financial compensation based on the following losses.
Expenses Related to Property Damages
When you are in an automobile accident, it is hard enough to recover from the jarring effect on your mind and body, let alone face the repairs on your vehicle after the collision. In some instances, your car may even be deemed “totaled,” which means the cost of restoring the automobile to such condition where it is legal and viable on the roads is higher than it would be to simply replace it entirely. Whether your vehicle has encountered a small or moderate amount of damage or is “totaled,” you deserve to be compensated for any associated fees — and a New York auto accident lawyer can help. That can include recoupment of the repair and replacement of the vehicle and other related fees.
Medical bills can span into the thousands or tens of thousands when you are injured in an auto collision. When you are not at fault in an accident, you can expect a New York car accident firm or an NYC truck accident attorney to work hard on your behalf to make sure you do not pay for medical expenses out of your own pocket. It is enough to have to recover physically, emotionally and mentally. Even depression and anxiety can be covered by some lawsuits.
When you are in a crash, you can be out of work for any amount of time, from one day to months, or sometimes years. The loss of wage earnings and other income can be recovered with the assistance of a New York auto accident lawyer. Be sure to contact one as soon as possible after the collision.

In most situations, the State of New York allows you three years from the date of your car accident to file a car accident claim for compensation.
