Bronx Isuzu Car Accident

Thousands of people are involved in accidents in New York each year, including accidents involving Isuzus. Just like most vehicle accidents, accidents involving Isuzus typically involve negligence. A person would have committed negligence if he or she failed to use reasonable care, resulting in damage or injury to another person. For example, if a driver speeds, fails to stop at a red light, or drives while intoxicated, that person who have been negligent. Car accidents sometimes involve serious injuries. For example, it is not uncommon for a car accident victim to suffer a traumatic brain injury such as a severe concussion, or a life-altering spinal cord injury that leaves the victim paralyzed. Such injuries are not only physically and emotionally painful they also can cause the victim financial stress since the victim may have to miss a substantial amount of work. If you suffered a serious injury in an Isuzu car accident, contact an experienced Bronx Isuzu car accident lawyer at Stephen Bilkis & Associates who will work closely with you to help you receive substantial compensation for your losses through a personal injury or claim.

What to Do After a Car Accident

If you are a victim of a car accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention if needed. However, it is also important to gather as much information as possible to ensure the best possible outcome of your personal injury claim.

  • Contact the police.
  • Get the name, contact information, and license information of the other driver.
  • Get the other driver’s insurance information.
  • Get the license plate # of the other car
  • Take photos of you cars and any other vehicles involved.
  • Take photos of the area around the scene for evidence of road and weather conditions.
  • Get contact information from witnesses
  • Contact your insurance company to report the accident. However, do not speak to the insurance company of the other driver or of anyone else involved in the accident.

If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries, contact an experienced Bronx Isuzu car accident lawyer.

Pursuing a Claim

If the negligence of another driver caused the Isuzu car accident that resulted in your injuries, you can pursue a claim against that person for damages. To prevail you must first show that the driver had a duty to you to drive with care. Because New York drivers are expected to drive at a reasonable, prudent speed, to keep the vehicle under control, and to obey all traffic laws in order to not cause harm to others, then all drivers have a duty to other drivers. Furthermore, you must show that the driver's negligence caused your injuries and that you suffered damages. For example, if you sue to recover damages based on a back injury and a head injury, you must show that you sustained the back injury and the head injury in the car accident and that you did not hurt your back and head in a fall two days prior to the accident. As an experienced Isuzu car accident attorney in the Bronx can explain, your medical records will provide key evidence as to the injuries that you sustained in the car accident.

The negligent driver may be ordered to compensate you for all of your expenses related to your medical care. They may also be ordered to compensate you for other economic losses you sustained such as lost wages or loss of earning capacity. The court may also award you non-economic damages such as pain and suffering or punitive damages.
