Car Accidents

At the law offices of Eric Richman, we have seen first-hand the effects of serious and sometimes permanent injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. They can cause a complete disruption to our clients’ lives and have devastating affects on their families. After an accident, our clients are often frustrated as they deal with vehicle repairs and other bills, while missing time from work and receiving constant calls from insurance companies. When clients come to us, our aim is to minimize their stress and help them focus on getting the medical attention they need. While our clients recover, we deal with the insurers and coordinate payment of their property damage and medical coverage.

Our Clients

We help our clients obtain appropriate compensation for their pain and suffering, emotional distress, permanent disfigurement, disability, scarring, interference with lifestyle and career activities, and other damages. In some cases, our attorneys are able to pursue additional damages for past, present and future medical expenses, loss of wages or earnings potential and other out-of-pocket costs.

What We Do

By carefully monitoring each and every client’s case, from intake through their active medical care, we are in a better position to provide solid evidence to support that case, whether we present it to an insurance company as part of settlement negotiations, or in court. In some cases, this means visiting the scene of the accident with experts to take photos or measure skid marks. In other cases, we may decide to produce a video to capture the physical and emotional effects of the accident. Throughout our representation, we are zealous advocates for our clients and their families, and present their claims in a thorough, organized and innovative manner.

A car accident can result in a variety of serious injuries, including fractures, broken bones, internal bleeding, head trauma, severe neck and back injuries, emergency surgery and even death. New York is one of the top four states in the country with the most fatalities due to car accidents involving pedestrians. If you or a member of your family has suffered a car accident in New York City, you need an experienced New York City personal injury lawyer by your side.
