Car accidents are life-altering events. They cause catastrophic injuries and exorbitant property damage. Many victims cannot afford the health-care costs and loss of income, and they turn to a car accident attorney for guidance.

The legal process is complicated, and recovering compensation from liable parties can be challenging - even if negligence appears obvious. With the right approach, though, you may be able to avoid insurmountable debt by pursuing lost wages, medical expenses and other damages from the at-fault driver. However, as the New York State Department of Financial Services explains, you will need evidence to support your claim. Doctors’ records, police reports, photographs of the scene and witness testimonies can all play a role in your case. Your attorney can use this evidence to structure your claim and pursue the maximum compensation from the insurance company or the at-fault party. If you were injured in New York, then a New York City auto accident attorney from Jaroslawicz & Jaros, L.L.C. may be able to help. To schedule a consultation, call us today at 212.227.2780. Until then, read on to learn three important points that you should discuss with your personal-injury lawyer:

  1. The Details of the Accident

Your auto accident lawyer must know exactly what occurred in the accident, including who is liable and what caused it. If the other driver is responsible, then your attorney can find ways to prove it. If you were liable - either partially or in full - then your lawyer can structure your claim and fight for a positive outcome.

  1. The Witnesses at the Scene

There are usually several eyewitnesses at accident scenes. It is imperative that you give the contact details of every witness to your counsel because he or she may contact witnesses and request testimonies. These testimonies may play an important role in determining liability.

  1. Evidence

One of the duties of your auto accident lawyer is to help you gather evidence and decide its value. The more evidence you have, the easier it will be to win a positive settlement or judgment. Many people overlook evidence that could be critical in a personal-injury case. Often, patients make mistakes that reduce the value of certain evidence. For example, accident victims often fail to report the injuries of all specific body parts, which can reduce the amount of compensation they receive. Most injury victims could benefit from hiring an attorney. In addition to gathering evidence, a lawyer can quantify the damages so you pursue the amount of compensation that you deserve. He or she can also handle settlement negotiations and litigate your case if it goes to trial. If your injury happened in New York , then Jaroslawicz & Jaros, L.L.C. may be able to help.
