YOU HAVE QUESTIONS – WE HAVE ANSWERS
A serious car accident can be a devastating event and turn your life upside down. At Spinner Law Firm you can rest assured that we are right here for you. From the very outset, we will sit down with you face to face to explain your rights and the personal injury process claim process. Common questions after an accident are:
Who is at fault in an Auto Accident Case?
If a driver fails to exercise reasonable care and caution on the road and causes an accident that injures you, then he or she can be found at fault, and therefore liable, for your injuries. Our legal team draws upon resources such as police reports, witness statements, local traffic laws, and accident reconstruction to determine who is to blame for the collision.
With expertise in handling liability claims, our auto accident lawyers will determine fault in your collision case, build a strong case against the person who caused the crash, and help you recover financial damages.
Am I Eligible for Compensation?
If you suffer injuries because of a negligent driver, you may be able to receive financial compensation for loss of wages, medical expenses, hospital bills, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and mental anguish.
You may also be entitled to punitive damages in cases of extreme neglect or wrongdoing. In some cases, drunk drivers may be required to pay punitive damages as added punishment when their blood alcohol reaches a certain level or their conduct is particularly egregious.
Should I talk to the insurance company?
After an auto accident, the insurance companies will be trying to reach you to take a statement about the accident and your injuries. It is important that you have the assistance of a qualified attorney before you give any information about the accident or your injuries to the insurance company. Remember, the objective of the insurance company, even your own, is to pay as little as possible to resolve your claim. By talking to the insurance company without proper representation, you may say something that is later used against you to minimize your case. Don’t make that mistake…contact Spinner Law Firm right away.
How do I get my car repaired and get into a rental?
New York State Law requires vehicle owners to purchase property damage liability insurance coverage. When your vehicle suffers damage in a crash caused by the carelessness of another driver, you have the right to have your car repaired through the other driver’s liability policy, provided there is sufficient evidence of fault for causing the accident. Alternatively, your vehicle repair claim can be handled through your own policy, provided you have purchased collision coverage.
Who will pay for my medical bills and lost wages?
No-fault automobile insurance is designed to cover your initial economic losses up to $50,000.00 following a motor vehicle accident irrespective of who is at fault for causing the accident. No fault covers such things as medical expenses and lost wages. No fault insurance does not cover emotional damages (e.g. pain and suffering) and is not to be confused with a claim against the at fault driver for bodily injury damages.
What happens when the other driver is un-insured?
When the other driver is uninsured, you look to the Uninsured Motorist provisions of your own insurance policy. New York, Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage is mandatory, when you purchase an auto insurance policy. UM coverage provides compensation for bodily injuries that you, your family or occupants of your vehicle may suffer, if you are involved in an accident with a hit and run driver or an uninsured motorist whose negligence causes damages.

Type of Auto Accidents
We handle claims for the following types of automobile accidents:
Trucking Accidents – A particular hazard on the road, tractor trailers, weighing up to 80,000 pounds, can cause significant damage and catastrophic accidents if they collide with another vehicle. Trucking accidents are often caused by negligent commercial drivers who lack proper training, suffer from fatigue, speed, text, or drive while intoxicated with alcohol or drugs – all of which put the safety of others at risk.
Car Accidents – The leading cause of motor vehicle deaths, thousands are killed each year in car crashes. A driver’s inattention, speeding, aggressive behavior, traffic violations, and intoxication are all lethal factors that can result in serious injury and wrongful deaths.
Motorcycle Accidents A driver’s inattention to the road is also one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents, which often lead to traffic fatalities. With less protection on the road than car or truck drivers, motorcyclists are more likely to suffer from severe injuries caused by an accident. Our firm can skillfully protect the rights of injured motorcyclists.
Drunk Driving Accidents – Driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents and fatalities on the road. Drunk driving occurs in all types of motor vehicle accident cases – from trucking to pedestrian. Dedicated to helping victims of these tragic accidents, our attorneys will advocate on behalf of those injured or killed by a drunk driver.
Pedestrian Accidents – Negligent drivers cause a significant amount of accidents and serious injuries to pedestrians. Many pedestrian collisions are caused by drunk drivers or alcohol involvement. Vulnerable to injury, pedestrians are more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries when involved in a motor vehicle collision.
Bicycle Accidents– A distracted or careless driver can quickly cause a serious accident and put an overwhelming number of bicyclists – including children – at risk. Sadly, alcohol-related collisions account for more than one-third of bicyclist fatalities. Understanding the sensitive nature of bicycle accidents, our legal team will aggressively pursue compensation for you and your family.
