Protecting The Rights Of New York Injury Victims After A Car Accident

As an injury victim, you have a right to seek fair compensation to pay for medical and related expenses. At Konta Georges & Buza P.C. our attorneys are experienced negotiators and litigators who have handled various types of injury cases involving many different situations.

The No-Fault Laws In New York

New York is a no-fault state. This means that those injured in a car accident should turn to their own insurance to recover compensation. However, you may be able to seek additional compensation, including noneconomic or punitive damages, if the following occurred:

  • You surpassed the serious injury threshold under the law which consists of economic loss over $50,000.
  • You or a loved one suffered severe injuries including but not limited to the loss of a limb or significant disfigurement. Wrongful death could also allow for additional compensation.
  • You experience temporary impairment for more than 90 days during the first 180 days after your injury.

Learn about your options today. Discuss your concerns with our award-winning lawyers to determine if you have a case.
