This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • What Should I Do Immediately After My Car Accident?

    Right after your accident, prioritize your safety and medical care needs. Call 911 to request medical assistance. Once you are safe from harm, report your accident to the police and collect the insurance information of the parties involved. Ask someone you trust to help you document the accident scene and take photos of the damage. Then, gather your medical documents and enlist The Law Offices of Eric Richman to protect your rights.

  • What If I’m Found Partially at Fault for My Car Accident?

    In some states, if you are in any way at fault for your accident, you cannot recover damages at all. New York is different because it operates under a “comparative negligence” system, which means that even if you were partially at fault, you could still file a lawsuit and secure compensation for your losses. However, the amount you can financially recover will be proportional to the amount you are found to be at fault.

  • Is there a Time Limit to File a Car Accident Lawsuit?

    Even though the statute of limitations in New York is three years from the date of the accident, this can vary based on the unique details of each case. In some cases, you can have just several weeks to initiate a lawsuit, so don’t make the mistake of assuming you’ll have three years. When you fail to abide by the legal time frames, it prevents you from seeking damages later. Don’t lose your right to sue by waiting too long. Contact us today.

  • How Long Does a Personal Injury Lawsuit Typically Take to Settle?

    Car accident cases typically settle out of court and can be resolved more quickly than cases that go to trial. However, everything depends on the parties’ willingness to agree to terms, court proceedings, and appeals. Simply put, a personal injury lawsuit can last anywhere from months to several years.

  • What Amount Should I Expect in the Settlement?

    There is no way to estimate your settlement amount. These numbers are determined by the facts of the case, and there are many unknowns when proceedings begin.

    Some lawyers overpromise to clients at the initial sign-up. At the Law Offices of Eric Richman, we always strive to be realistic with our clients from day one.

  • How Do I Choose the Right Brooklyn Car Accident Lawyer?

    You should choose your lawyer based on their qualifications, history, and reputation. It’s in your best interests to find an expert personal injury lawyer with years of experience representing car accident victims and their families. Spend time reading client reviews. Choose a lawyer who is accessible to answer your questions anytime after your initial consultation and before your case settles, which will be important to the outcome of your case.
