As unfortunate as it is, car accidents happen in New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area every day. The congestion faced in this area is some of the worst in the country. If you have been involved in a car accident in or around New York City, there is a chance you have sustained injuries. Upon being injured in a car accident in New York City due to the negligence of another party, it may be a good idea to consider your legal options. With the services of an experienced personal injury attorney, you may be able to recover significant damages that can assist in covering the cost of medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial burdens that were caused by the accident. In addition, you may be able to recover compensation for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering.

A few things that are important to consider and be aware of after an accident include:

  • There is a 30-day time limit after the accident in order to file for no-fault insurance benefits
