Possible Recoverable Damages in a Collision
In the vast majority of cases, traffic accident victims will have the option of filing a claim through their own no-fault coverage following a crash. This provides an easy and quick way to receive compensation for your most basic losses via your personal injury protection (PIP) policy. This includes medical bills, a portion of lost wages up to $2,000 a month, and up to $25 a day for related expenses.
However, many collision victims suffer more significant financial losses after a crash, even when they had no part in causing it. The best way to remedy this is to file a fault-based claim, if you qualify. A fault-based claim allows you to recover additional losses based on the responsible motorist’s liability insurance coverage. These additional damages could include:
- Medical bills beyond the limits of your PIP policy, including future care needs
- Lost wages and other income, including benefits
- Other out-of-pocket expenses, travel and parking costs at the doctor, rental car fees, and more
- Intangible losses, including pain and suffering, mental distress, diminished quality of life, and more
New York Has a Statute of Limitations on Filing Collision Cases
Per New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214, car crash victims who qualify to hold the at-fault driver responsible for their injuries generally only have up to three years to begin a civil lawsuit. If an insurance claim does not secure a fair payout based on the evidence we collect, we may need to take your case to trial in Nassau County or another appropriate jurisdiction.
There are exceptions to this statute that make the deadline come even faster, such as if the at-fault driver worked for a municipality and drove a city vehicle. When you first reach out to our team, we can determine the timeline we will need to follow for your case. There are also deadlines for filing your PIP claims, so contact us as soon as you can after your collision to avoid missing one of these critical deadlines.
