Frequently Asked Questions about Internal Bleeding Injuries from Car Accidents
Some of the questions we hear most often from our car accident clients include:
What if I was partially at fault for the accident?
In New York, you still have the right to pursue a legal claim for compensation even if you share some of the fault for a car accident. The state follows what is known as the comparative fault rule, which says that an injured party is not barred from pursuing compensation even though they bear some share of responsibility for causing their injuries. However, any compensation award the injured party obtains may be reduced in proportion to the percentage of fault that they bear for causing their own injuries.
How much does a car accident attorney cost?
At Hach & Rose, LLP, we understand the financial difficulties that you face when trying to recover from internal injuries and bleeding. We represent car accident victims on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not have to pay any money upfront to retain our firm. Instead, we are paid only when we secure financial compensation in your case, either through a negotiated settlement or by winning a verdict and judgment in your favor at trial. That way, you have no financial risk in pursuing your legal rights following a car crash.
How long will my case take?
It is nearly impossible to predict how long any particular car accident case will take. Factors that can affect the course of a car accident claim include the types and severity of your injuries, whether you are still undergoing treatment, the availability of insurance coverage, the complexity of the evidence from the accident scene, and whether liability for the crash is being questioned. If you have finished with your treatment for your car accident injuries and the other driver or party has accepted liability for the crash, a settlement of your claim might be reached within several months. However, if liability for your injuries is being contested or if you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you may have to file a lawsuit in your case, which can take as long as a couple of years to complete.
