Start Building Your Personal Injury Claim Now
On Long Island, your right to financial compensation is limited by New York’s statute of limitations. According to New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214, you generally have three years to file your personal injury lawsuit. Three years might seem like a long time, but the clock starts ticking the day the accident occurs and can run out faster than you think.
The physical injuries you sustain in the accident might prevent you from taking immediate action on your own behalf. When Morelli Law Firm represents you, we can keep the filing deadline in mind and work hard to ensure compliance.
In addition to ensuring your claim is filed on time, our team can also identify the cause of the accident, assign a value to your compensation claim, and build a solid evidence file to use in your insurance claim or lawsuit.
Establishing Negligence in a Car Accident Case
Most personal injury claims are dependent on proving the negligence led to the accident. The other driver’s refusal or inability to obey a posted traffic sign or signal might form the foundation of negligence in your case.
Morelli Law Firm’s investigative team may be able to use your crash report to support your negligence claim. We can also carefully interview anyone who witnessed the accident and might even be able to locate traffic camera footage that proves the other driver disregarded a traffic command and collided with your vehicle. We may also be able to hire accident reconstruction experts to testify in your defense.
Once our team has established negligence and assigned liability to the at-fault driver, we can evaluate your expenses and losses and assign a monetary value to your financial compensation claim.
