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

  • Can I File a Claim if I Was Partially at Fault for the Scooter Accident?

    Because New York follows comparative negligence laws, accident victims can still seek damages even if they are primarily or partially at fault. However, your legal settlement can be adjusted by the amount of fault you are determined to have.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Receive?

    Compensation is generally determined by the extent of the victim’s personal damages and the extent of their injuries. You might be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. If you have questions about compensation and settlement amounts, contact us today.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

    In New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally three years after the accident. However, if your accident was caused by the negligence of a state, city, county, or local municipality, you must file your claim within 90 days of the accident to avoid losing your ability to file and seek compensation for your injuries.
