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

The very first thing you should do is seek treatment by a medical professional, and be sure mention all the areas of pain or injury. Second: call Sobo & Sobo to secure your rights.

You likely have a personal injury if: (1) you were in an accident that was not entirely your fault, and (2) you sustained an injury from the accident.

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

No-Fault refers to the legal system that requires the insurance company for the vehicle that you are occupying to pay for certain benefits such as medical bills and lost wages, regardless of who caused the accident. New York, for example, has a no-fault law that requires the insurance company for the vehicle you occupy to pay benefits even if that vehicle did not cause the accident.

There are different statute of limitations in New York, and exceptions that can add additional time. While every case is different, the statute of limitations in New York for personal injury claims is three years from the date of the accident.
