It depends on the type of accident involved. Potentially responsible parties may include:
– Your own insurance company,
– The at-fault driver,
– A company that owned the other vehicle,
– The public transit authorities,
– A company that manufactured or designed a defective vehicle part,
– A company responsible for maintaining the vehicle that caused the accident,
– A property owner that maintained their property negligently,
– A government entity for negligently maintaining the roads.
Many people in NYC are injured in bike accidents, taxi accidents, bus accidents and other types of road accidents where they weren’t even driving a motor vehicle. You might not even have car insurance. In some cases, such as subway or bus accidents, the public transportation authority may even be responsible for your accident. Timelines might be much shorter for filing a claim than if you were injured in a simple car accident. Commercial insurance policies with higher coverage limits might be involved—which usually means the insurance company will fight even harder to avoid responsibility. Our lawyers can help you understand the specific laws that apply based on the type of motor vehicle accident involved.
