Car accident lawyers serving New York

Thanks to ongoing safety initiatives, traffic fatalities in Manhattan continue to decline, but crash statistics across the five boroughs indicate that more needs to be done to bolster traffic enforcement laws and hold reckless drivers accountable. People who drive drunk, fail to obey traffic laws or think nothing of texting when behind the wheel cause thousands of senseless injuries and deaths each year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one-third of all vehicle fatalities involve drivers who are impaired by alcohol or narcotics. In New York alone, driver distraction was responsible for nearly 50,000 vehicle crashes in 2015, and this number continues to climb.

When your health and the livelihood of those you love are at stake, you want an advocate who will champion your rights, provide access to top-notch medical care and meticulously calculate the true value of your claim. Even seemingly minor fender benders can result in unplanned medical bills and physical limitations that can undermine the foundation of a family.

The NYC personal injury law firm of Friedman, Levy, Goldfarb & Green has a long track record of outstanding settlements and judgements for injured clients. Bringing 80 years of collective experience, wisdom and legal expertise, our distinguished auto accident lawyers offer private consultations free of charge. After any type of vehicle accident, our attorneys can help you understand the law and safeguard your rights.

Tenacious advocacy for car accident victims

In our decades of personal injury practice in New York, we have witnessed the immense physical, emotional and economic burdens placed upon accident victims and their families. New York is one of 12 states that employ “no fault” insurance laws designed to reimburse car accident victims for medical expenses, lost wages and other essential out-of-pocket costs without proving fault. This is different than a bodily injury claim that requires distinct standards of proof and entails medical bills totaling more than $50,000.

Given the highly specialized procedures and rules for obtaining fair car accident compensation from insurance companies, and the various tactics used to deny or lower payouts, it’s crucial to partner with an established attorney at our firm.

Friedman, Levy, Goldfarb & Green litigate a broad range of motor vehicle accidents, including:

  • Vehicle rollovers
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on crashes
  • Side-impact accidents
  • DUI accidents
  • Distracted driving crashes
  • Pedestrian-vehicle accidents
  • Bicycle-vehicle accidents
  • Commercial vehicle and truck accidents

All too often, crash victims accept the first offer from the insurance company, completely unaware that they could have recovered thousands of dollars more or even pursued a car accident lawsuit against a negligent third-party. Our practice has the investigative resources and expertise to craft the strongest case possible and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.

Medical treatment for serious car accident injuries

The type of injuries sustained factor largely in the value of your car accident case. Those that cause long-term disability, require surgery or lengthy rehabilitation will inevitably net larger settlements. Some of the most common injuries seen in truck and motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Deep lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Neck and back injuries such as whiplash and herniated discs
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage
  • Traumatic brain injury, concussions and skull fractures
  • Burns requiring skin grafting
  • Jaw and dental damage
  • Fractured ribs
  • Crush injuries

Our dedicated car accident attorneys have helped hundreds of New Yorkers get the medical treatment needed to recover and move on with their lives. Our team is with you every step of the way, offering honest, compassionate guidance and personal attention.
