Fishkill Injury Attorney Serving Wappingers Falls, Beacon, Lagrangeville and Nearby Areas of Hudson Valley
Posted: August 12, 2020
Have you been injured in a car accident in Wappingers Falls? Injury Attorney Ira M. Maurer may be able to assist you in recovering damages such as:
- Medical Expenses
- Wages Lost During Recovery
- Wages Lost Due to Disability
- Pain and Suffering
When injury is severe and will necessitate home modifications such as ramps or railings, or require adaptive technologies including wheelchairs, those damages can be included as well. In fact, anything related to your accident, your injury, or consequences of the two can be included in the damages you seek.
In order to receive damages for your Wappingers Fall car accident, liability will need to be established. New York is a no-fault state, which means that your claim will be filed with your own insurance company. Suing for additional compensation requires victims meet specific criteria established by the State.
New York is also a pure comparative fault state. This means that, when you are seeking additional damages through legal action, the role you played in your accident will be taken into account. In some cases, liability is straightforward. In many others, it requires a thorough investigation.
Attorney Maurer has over 40 years of experience helping victims of serious injury get justice in the Hudson Valley and beyond. He takes time to investigate car accidents, utilizing experts and reconstructionists as needed to determine where fault should lie. Unless liability is established, there is no path for additional compensation.
Is Insurance On Your Side?
Insurance companies have reported record-breaking profits over the past few years. These profits come at the expense of victims who are owed compensation well beyond the paltry offerings insurance companies deign to provide. Without legal action, it is unlikely that you will be fully compensated for your injuries.
Having a lawyer on your side protects you against the predatory and coercive tactics insurance companies may use to force you into an inadequate settlement. Before you accept what insurance is offering, call the Maurer Law Firm at 845-896-5295 to schedule a free consultation and learn more.
