Should I Sue After a Car Accident?

If you are injured in a car crash, contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.


After a car accident, it’s essential to contact a motor vehicle accident attorney as soon as possible. A good personal injury lawyer will be able to advise you on what steps to take next and ensure that your rights are protected. Please don’t wait until the police report comes in or until the other driver’s insurance company contacts you–get in touch with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident so they can start working on getting compensation for medical bills and other damages caused by the crash.

You’ll want to know whether legal action against the other driver is worth it.


If you’re considering taking legal action against the other driver, it’s essential to know how likely your case will be successful.

The first step in determining whether you should sue is determining if there is a case. This means looking at both parties’ insurance policies, as well as any applicable state laws concerning uninsured motorist coverage. If one party has coverage and the other doesn’t (or if both lack sufficient coverage), then this may affect how much money can be recovered from an insurance company in the event of an accident.

The best person to talk to in determining if you have a case against the other driver is an experienced New York City personal injury lawyer.

What is the Statute of Limitations in New York?


The statute of limitations is a state law that limits the time you have to file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations for a personal injury case arising from a car accident in New York is generally three years from the date of the accident, per New York Civil Practice Law & Rules § 214. If you don’t sue within this timeframe and want to sue, then the court will dismiss your case.

Statutes of limitations are also intended to prevent people from filing frivolous lawsuits and clogging up the court system. If you’re a victim, it makes sense that you want justice for what happened to you as soon as possible. The time limits imposed by a statute of limitations make it essential to contact a personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible after your accident.

Can I Sue the Other Driver in New York if They’re Not Licensed?


If the other driver is not licensed, you can still sue them, and the same rules apply as if they were licensed. For example, if the other driver was at fault for causing your accident, their insurance company will be liable for your injuries and damages–even if they are not licensed to drive in New York.

You should consult with an attorney specializing in personal injury cases to determine whether it would be worth filing a lawsuit against an unlicensed driver who caused your car accident. They will review the facts surrounding your case and advise you on what steps to take next.

What if a Drunk Driver hurt me?


You can sue the driver for damages. Drunk driving is a criminal offense, so if a drunk driver has hurt you, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against them. You may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses and lost wages from your injury as well as pain and suffering caused by the accident itself or its aftermath.
