Auto Accident Settlements

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other losses. The amount of compensation you can receive will depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • The severity of your injuries: The more severe your injuries, the higher your settlement is likely to be.
  • The cost of your medical treatment: The cost of your medical treatment, including hospital bills, doctor’s visits, and rehabilitation, will be factored into your settlement.
  • The length of your recovery time: If your injuries require a long recovery time, you may be entitled to more compensation.
  • The impact on your daily life: If your injuries have a significant impact on your daily life, such as preventing you from working or enjoying your hobbies, you may be entitled to more compensation
  • The extent of property damage: If your vehicle or other property was damaged in the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement.
  • The amount of insurance coverage: The amount of insurance coverage available will also impact your settlement. If the other driver is underinsured or uninsured, it may be more difficult to recover full compensation for your losses.
  • Liability: The degree of fault or liability will also be considered in determining your settlement. If you were partially at fault for the accident, your settlement may be reduced.

It is important to note that each case is unique, and the factors that determine a settlement can vary widely. An experienced motor vehicle accident attorney can help you navigate the complex legal process and ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

FAQ in Car Accident Cases

Lo primero que debe hacer es acudir a un profesional médico y asegurarse de mencionar todas las áreas de dolor o lesión. Segundo: llame a Sobo & Sobo para asegurar sus derechos.

Es probable que haya sufrido lesiones personales si (1) ha sufrido un accidente que no ha sido totalmente culpa suya, y (2) ha sufrido una lesión como consecuencia del accidente.

The Sobo & Sobo “No Fee Guarantee” puts in writing that there is never a charge unless the firm wins money for the client.

El término "sin culpa" hace referencia al sistema legal que obliga a la compañía de seguros del vehículo que usted ocupa a pagar determinadas prestaciones, como facturas médicas y salarios perdidos, independientemente de quién haya causado el accidente. Nueva York, por ejemplo, tiene una ley de no culpabilidad que obliga a la compañía de seguros del vehículo que ocupas a pagar las prestaciones aunque ese vehículo no haya causado el accidente.

Hay diferentes estatutos de limitaciones en Nueva York, y excepciones que pueden añadir tiempo adicional. Aunque cada caso es diferente, el plazo de prescripción en Nueva York para las demandas por lesiones personales es de tres años a partir de la fecha del accidente.
