Anyone who has ever navigated busy New York roadways knows how stressful it can be. Even if most motorists are alert and cautious behind the wheel, there is often little than can be done to avoid car accidents if reckless or negligent drivers are sharing the road. In such situations, it helps to know ahead of time where to turn for support if another driver causes a collision that results in injury.
Even the most minor accident injuries often necessitate several doctor visits and various types of treatment during the recovery process. Many people are forced to take time off work, which can be a real financial strain, especially for those who are paid by the hour. People often are completely unprepared to meet the exorbitant expenses associated with a motor vehicle crash.
In a situation where another motorist's negligence is to blame for an injury, there is no reason the recovering victim should bear the brunt of expense. The law allows an injured accident victim to file a claim in civil court to recover losses. To do so places the burden of proof on the plaintiff, however, which is why most people act alongside experienced representation in court.
