It’s important to gather information and make decisions carefully.

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?

    There are a few important steps to take to protect your rights, but your first priority should be to ensure your safety and well-being of all involved parties. Call 911, get medical help, and report the accident to the police. After the accident, be careful what you say about it; don’t admit fault or make statements that could be used against you later. It will be necessary to exchange information such as names, contact information, and insurance information and document the accident scene.

    If your injuries prevent you from documenting the accident, ask a trusted friend or family member to photograph the scene and gather witness statements. Contact a lawyer for advice on your next steps.

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

    New York uses a “comparative negligence” system, which allows accident victims to be financially compensated for their injuries even if they were partially to blame for the accident. The compensation amount will be proportional to the amount of fault you are found to have.

  • Who Will Pay My Medical Bills From My Car Accident Injuries?

    Responsibility will vary depending on the specifics of your case, such as who was involved, the car insurance companies involved, and the level of expertise of the legal professional you choose to represent you.

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

    The vast majority of car accident cases typically settle out of court. When you’ve retained the best Queens car accident lawyer, you can expect that the negotiations, court proceedings, and appeals will be handled professionally. Your settlement timeline can range from months to years, depending on the other parties’ willingness to agree to terms.

  • What Amount Should I Expect in My Car Accident Settlement?

    The details of your case will determine the amount of your settlement and, ultimately, how your case is handled from start to finish. Unfortunately, many law offices overpromise clients at the initial sign-up, which is misleading and can give their clients unrealistic expectations. The Law Offices of Eric Richman always strive to be realistic with our clients from day one.
