For drivers, passengers, and pedestrians alike, injuries caused by auto or motorcycle accidents can be traumatic and have long-lasting effects.
Maxwell Murphy works with our clients to navigate laws specific to auto accidents, ensuring they receive the maximum compensation they’re entitled to. For people injured in an auto-to-auto-accident, New York State is a no-fault state—which means that no matter who caused the accident, your insurance must automatically pay your medical bills, a portion of your lost wages, and certain other expenses. For pedestrians or bicyclists, that same obligation is transferred to the driver of the car.
However, when someone sustains a serious injury as a result of a negligent driver, it may also be possible to obtain non-no-fault covered damages for pain and suffering, permanent injury, or wages and medical expenses that exceed the limits of no-fault payments. These types of serious injuries include:
- Significant disfigurement
- Loss of a fetus
- Loss of an organ, member, function or system
- Permanent limitation of use of a body organ or member
- Significant limitation of use of a body function or system
If you or a loved one has been in an auto accident—whether as a driver, passenger, bicyclist, or pedestrian—please reach out to the team at Maxwell Murphy so that we can work with you to evaluate your situation and ensure you receive the care and compensation you deserve.
