Collisions between two passenger vehicles are probably the most common form of personal injury case in Western New York. There are, however, many nuances of law surrounding these cases that can make them difficult to resolve without hiring an experienced personal injury attorney.
If you are injured in a car crash, you can make a claim against the “at fault” driver’s car insurance for pain and suffering and economic losses.
In New York the injured person must prove that the injury is a “serious injury” to successfully pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Determining whether an injury is a “serious injury” can be difficult in some cases. That’s why car insurance companies usually contest every claim, even when it is clear that the other driver was a fault.
