Just as you wouldn’t trust your medical treatment to an inexperienced physician, you want your car accident lawyer to be knowledgeable, experienced, and aggressive.

Our Brooklyn car accident attorneys will apply years of experience to your case, evaluating the facts and determining the best strategy for bringing you the justice you deserve. We strive to help injured clients through the recovery process, which often requires extensive medical treatment and costly rehabilitation.
How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim in New York?
New York has a three-year statute of limitations for car accident claims. This means you have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim. Once that time has passed, you no longer have the ability to file a claim and pursue compensation.
You do not have three years to notify your auto insurance provider about the accident, though. You could have as little as 10 or so days to tell them. Ideally, you will tell them shortly after you hire our firm, which should be done within 24 or 48 hours of a crash.
Can You File a Car Accident Claim If You Were Partially At Fault?
New York follows a "pure comparative fault" rule when it comes to car accidents and injury claims. This means that even if you are partly responsible for the accident, you are still eligible to pursue compensation.
"Pure comparative" means that no matter how at fault you are, you can still pursue damages from the other party, but your percentage of fault will be reduced from your total compensation.
For example, if you are found to be 15% at fault for an accident, then your total compensation awarded to you would be reduced by 15%. Of course, keep in mind that you can’t file a third-party claim at all unless you are seriously injured.
