Long Island, NY, is a dangerous place to drive, so if you were in a wreck with a truck, you may need to seek compensation for your damages. Since New York is a no-fault auto insurance state, get in touch with a truck accident lawyer to give yourself the best chance at compensation.
No-Fault Auto Insurance
Because of New York’s no-fault laws, your insurance will need to kick in to cover your bills first. However, trucks are large and heavy, so you may still face bills after your insurance is exhausted. After you’ve reached your coverage limits, New York law allows you to go after the other driver. An experienced truck accident lawyer can help you get the funds you need to cover your bills.
Even if you aren’t struggling to pay your bills, you may be struggling with the aftereffects of a major accident. This can include posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an inability to drive, or a lowered quality of life due to the accident and the injuries you sustained.
To ensure the truck driver is more careful in the future and to receive compensation for what you’ve been through, you may also be able to seek compensation for pain and suffering.
