Seasoned Representation For Injury Victims Since 1980

Car accidents are a frequent occurrence in busy places like New York City. Rear-end collisions are common, and often result from a driver’s negligent or reckless behavior. Whether a driver was distracted, following too closely or driving too aggressively, it is your right to hold them accountable! If you were injured in a rear-end collision, then you should take legal action against the negligent driver(s) in a personal injury claim.

At Jaroslawicz & Jaros, we can assist accident victims in pursuing a course of action to help them obtain the compensation they are entitled to receive. Our New York City motor vehicle accident attorneys have more than 300 years of combined experience, allowing our legal team to work in your best interests from start to finish. When fighting for compensation, consider a firm that has recovered more than $2 billion in damages for its clients.

Did A Driver’s Negligence Cause The Accident?

Common examples of driver negligence and recklessness include the following:

  • Following too closely
  • Driving too quickly
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving aggressively
  • Driving while tired or drowsy
  • Ignoring/neglecting safe driving practices

A successful personal injury claim against a negligent driver may award you compensation for the following:

  • Medical costs, including treatment, surgery, etc., both for the past and the future
  • Loss of wages and earning capacity, both for the past and the future
  • Physical/emotional pain and suffering, both for the past and the future
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
