Automobile accidents are the most common cases we handle.  Please know that when we talk about automobile accident cases we mean motorcycle and tractor-trailer accidents as well.  Our firm has handled numerous cases in these areas and are experienced in the unique circumstances motorcycle and tractor-trailer accidents encompass.

In any automobile accident case, the various insurance policies involved are usually the key to resolving an injury or death claim.  In both New York and Pennsylvania the law requires all automobiles be insured.  Typically this means that one insurance company will pay your medical bills and lost wages while another company will be responsible for car-crashcompensating you for your injuries.  There are also additional issues regarding underinsured coverage (called Supplementary Underinsured Motorist coverage in New York) or excess insurance that could possibly increase the amount of coverage available on your claim.  Unfortunately, many of the regulations imposed by both New York and Pennsylvania law require you to fill out complicated forms to claim benefits and there are very strict and short deadlines that must be met in order for you to get all the benefits to which you are entitled.  Some of these deadlines can be as short as thirty (30) days.

With that being said, we would be happy to review your automobile accident case and assist you in working through this maze of forms and deadlines.  If you retain our firm, we will handle all the dealings with the various insurance companies for you and make sure that you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled.  We will sit down with you and explain the ins and outs of your claim including no-fault, “limited tort”, “serious injury” and other related issues.
