Under what circumstances can I arbitrate my auto accident claim?
In this week’s newest video FAQ, Hach & Rose, LLP attorney Halina Radchenko discusses the circumstances in which parties may privately resolve a claim outside of the courthouse through arbitration. She explains that this method may allow a faster resolution for your claim, while still recovering the same amount of compensation for your claim. She goes on further to explain why it may benefit individuals in New York, due to the large number of cases already in the court system.

The Schodack Police Department in New York reported that a woman and her horse were victims of a hit-and-run accident that occurred on Burden Lake Road at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31.
According to 26-year-old Kait Kennedy, who reported the hit-and-run personal injury auto accident, she was riding her four-year-old horse, Cali, along the road back to Pine Ridge Farm when a silver minivan began to edge up behind them. The driver was beside Kennedy and her horse when he allegedly rolled down his window and yelled, “It’s illegal to ride on the road,” and began honking his horn. Kennedy said the sound caused Cali to jump into the road. The car hit them, causing both the horse and Kennedy to fall. “At that point, I was looking around and the car was driving away.” Authorities are still trying to identify the man responsible for the accident.

26-year-old Eduard Nikhman ran a red light, causing a major accident at the intersection of Avenue P and 12th St. When his silver Honda Accord went through the light, he hit an Infinity, who had a green light. The impact caused the vehicles to trap a cyclist that was crossing the intersection at the time of the accident. The cars and cyclist were stopped by two parked cars on the street.
Witnesses say Nikhman was speeding and ran another light before the accident occurred. He is currently facing multiple charges as police found he was on drugs at the time of the collision. Nikhman’s mother admitted to reporters that her son has had a drug problem for quite some time.
While the drivers of both vehicles involved were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, the cyclist was pronounced dead upon arrival. Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this time.
