Our Brookhaven, NY, Auto Accident Lawyers Pursue Fair Compensation for Victims
When a crash victim suffers serious injuries, their expenses and losses often quickly eclipse their no-fault insurance coverage. You could have costs that continue for months, years, or even the rest of your life. However, you should not have to shoulder the costs stemming from a crash due to someone else’s negligence. Our car accident lawyers believe in holding the at-fault driver or other liable parties accountable.
We investigate every case we handle. This includes not only showing fault and liability but also identifying, documenting, and valuing recoverable losses. There is no way to know how much a case might be worth without taking this step. Every case is different, and the money available through an insurance claim or lawsuit depends greatly on the unique aspects of the case.
Some of the types of damages we can pursue for car crash victims include:
- Current and future medical and care costs
- Lost wages due to missed work
- Diminished earning capacity based on lasting disabilities
- Property damages, including repair of your damaged vehicle
- Related expenses with documentation
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress

We are sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one and extend our warmest sympathies. We can help you understand your options and navigate your legal case during this difficult time.
New York State law limits who can act as the plaintiff in a wrongful death lawsuit. Per EPTL § 5-4.1, any legal action must come from the estate executor, known as the victim’s personal representative. Our wrongful death lawyers can work with this party to help families recover compensation and hold the at-fault party accountable.
Through a wrongful death case, you could seek compensation for:
- Funeral and burial costs

Our Brookhaven Crash Lawyers Can Assess Your Rights After an Accident
New York State law requires drivers to carry a no-fault auto insurance policy known as personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. This policy allows those hurt in a crash to file a claim based on their own policy and get money quickly. This policy pays for their medical care and a portion of lost income up to the policy maximum.
However, the limits of these policies are often quickly eclipsed when serious injuries occur. For this reason, New York law also requires drivers to carry auto liability coverage. This insurance policy provides coverage for medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages for victims of crashes the policyholder causes.
When a victim suffers serious injuries, they can often file a case against the at-fault driver and recover money through this policy. You could also file a personal injury lawsuit to seek the money you need.
