In order for you to have a viable cause to file an injury claim or lawsuit after a car accident in New York, you must demonstrate that the accident was caused by someone else and that you sustained serious injury as defined by statute. Both required elements are open to subjective interpretation.
- How can you prove that another motorist caused an accident?
- How can you prove that your injury was truly serious?
Shortcut answers to questions as serious as these are not an adequate response to a major motor vehicle accident. Do you face an uphill battle obtaining needed compensation for your soft tissue injury after a car accident in New York? To protect your right to compensation, you should have an experienced plaintiffs’ attorney review the facts of your automobile crash and advise you on how to proceed.
In some cases, proving that an injury was serious can be tricky, quirky and seemingly illogical. An accident victim with debilitating soft tissue injury, such as crippling back pain or shoulder pain after a crash, may be unable to convince an insurance claims adjuster, a judge or a jury that the injury is real. Someone with a broken pinkie finger, on the other hand, may be entitled to compensation even when the injury is actually quite minor. Soft tissue injury may not show up in an X-ray, whereas a broken bone will.
You need an astute, aggressive attorney on your side to ensure that your story of injury is made clear to claims adjusters, judges or juries. It is our policy to work with your treating physician if possible before turning to third-party experts. We understand the trust that our clients place in their doctors. You, your doctor and your attorney should be on the same side — seeking the treatment and compensation you are entitled to.
