In New York State there were approximately 251,000 motor vehicle crashes according to the NYS DMV in 2012 alone. Of those crashes, 1,082 involved one or more fatalities and thousands involved injuries. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, then you deserve quality legal representation. Be sure to get the necessary medical attention and to talk to a lawyer. Bronx, New York lawyer Jayson Lutzky handles several types of motor vehicle accidents cases.
If you were in a car accident, the most common type of motor vehicle accident, according to the CDC, your case may be very complex. There are different types of insurances and different types of compensation. Furthermore, there are many different types of accidents and there are many questions that must be answered to help evaluate your case and craft a legal argument. Was there a traffic signal involved? What were the road conditions? Who hit whom? Was everyone following the posted speed limit? Was there a defect in the car? If you were involved in an automobile accident and there were damages, then you should contact an attorney. Mr. Lutzky can answer many questions you may have and can represent you throughout your case, whether it is settled or goes to trial.
While taxis are cars, cases involving accidents with a taxi and another motor vehicle may be handled slightly differently than other motor vehicle cases because of insurance policies. Mr. Lutzky understands the policies that most T&LC drivers and vehicles have and is ready to represent you should you be the victim of a taxi accident.
Motorcyclists are said to be exposed drivers. That is because, in the event of a collision, they do not have the body of a car to provide protection against the impact. Rather, many motorcyclists involved in accidents easily break bones, tear skin and injure internal organs. Additionally, motorcyclists who do not wear helmets are at an even greater risk of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Consequently, whether or not you were at fault in an accident, you should still contact an attorney to learn what your options are.
Buses and trucks can cause catastrophic accidents due to their size and weight. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a bus or truck, then you may be able to claim certain benefits. Often, these types of vehicles have insurance as well as what is known as under insurance. Under insurance can provide for settlements above the amount of the lower policy. Ask a lawyer to learn more about this type of insurance and if it applies to your case.
Not everyone injured or involved in a motor vehicle accident is actually in a motor vehicle. Bystanders, such as pedestrians and bicyclists, are struck by vehicles and are injured on a daily basis. They, too, deserve legal representation, whether they have a temporary injury or a permanent one. In some instances, the court must determine who is responsible for whose injuries in order to award compensation.
If you were in an accident, then do not hesitate to contact Jayson Lutzky. He offers free in person consultations or consultations at your home or hospital in the event of a serious injury. The consultation is confidential free of charge. Mr. Lutzky has 34+ years of experience practicing law in New York State. Let him put that experience to work for you.
