Automobile Injuries

Every year there are thousands of automobile accidents in New York. Unfortunately, they leave families burdened with medical expenses as well as pain and suffering. No matter how careful you are, there are many inattentive and dangerous drivers on the roads. This area of law has been a significant part of our firm's practice for many years. Injuries can be very serious, with permanent health consequences. Accidents can also result in a significant loss of income.

In New York, claims for medical injuries require meeting certain thresholds, as defined by New York State's No-fault Law. Our firm has the experience in evaluating claims based on the thresholds and presenting your claim in the strongest light possible.

At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, we help guide you through what can be a difficult time. We will investigate accidents, including obtaining accident reports and talking with police when necessary. We make it a priority to investigate any potential insurance coverage which would pay for your medical bills.

Common Causes:

Many automobile accidents are caused by inattentive drivers of cars, trucks and other vehicles who fail to drive with care. Frequent causes may also include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Passing red lights and stop signs
  • Cell phone use
  • Inattention and loss of focus of other drivers
  • Inclement weather
  • Blind spots
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Defective motorcycle parts

Determining Fault in Car Accident Cases

There are several factors that are taken into consideration when determining who is at fault for a car accident. At its most basic form, the law recognizes these four levels of fault and liability:

  • Negligence
  • Recklessness
  • Intentional
  • Strict liability

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you should not hesitate to contact our firm as soon as possible. We understand that the aftermath of an accident is a time characterized by uncertainty, anxiety, and doubt, but we are well equipped in handling even the most difficult personal injury matters.
