Maybe it was supposed to be the vacation of a lifetime, maybe you just came to the great state of New York to visit family, or maybe it was a last-minute get-a-way. No matter what brought you here, you did not expect to end up hurt after suffering a car accident injury. If negligence contributed to your injury, you may have legal recourse.
When you get hurt while on vacation, you go home and then have to figure out how you are going to go about seeking compensation for your losses. Handling a personal injury case from out of state is not an easy task. Thankfully, it is possible to receive help from in-state counsel, even if you cannot be here in person.
At the end of the day, it does not matter if you are a resident of the state of New York or were just here visiting when your injury occurred. If the driver who hit you was distracted, drunk, driving recklessly or exhibiting any other form of negligent behavior causing the crash, you have every right to seek compensation for your losses. This can start by trying to seek a fair settlement without having to go to court. Most personal injury cases are handled this way.
If negotiations are not getting you anywhere, litigation may be necessary, and that is okay. Legal counsel can get you through it and will fight diligently to help you seek the relief you need, following a car accident injury. To learn more about this topic, please visit our firm’s website.
