Serving Car Accident Victims in Buffalo, and western New York

image description

By far, the most common form of transportation in the U.S. is the automobile. We drive cars to work, to school, to run errands, to travel to vacation destinations, and for countless other purposes. This is why it is not a surprise that auto accidents happen at an alarming rate. On average, more than six million traffic accidents take place per year in the U.S., causing close to 40,000 fatalities and more than 2.5 million injuries. In Erie County, New York, alone, in 2011 there were 16,928 crashes, killing 48 and injuring 9,282, according to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a car accident in the Buffalo Niagara Region, you probably have many questions about what to do next. Review the following information, then call Feroleto Law at (716) 854-0700.

why would I need a lawyer in a no-fault state?

New York state has a “no-fault” law. It requires insurance companies to pay for certain accident-related expenses regardless of who was at fault in a car crash. You can read more about no-fault benefits.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that no disputes will arise or that dealing with an insurance company is going to be easy. New York’s no-fault law provides an insurance company must pay up to $50,000 for accident-related medical expenses, lost earnings and incidental costs caused by the crash. But often, in a serious car accident, the bills far exceed the no-fault limit. In addition, when the insurance company’s doctor deems an accident victim recovered, it can issue denials.

If major car damage has taken place or serious injuries or fatalities have occurred, or when the insurance company fails to pay benefits in a timely manner, you will need an experienced auto accident attorney to represent your interests in court. For more than 30 years, Feroleto Law has been helping car accident victims pursue the benefits to which they are entitled. Insurance companies are known for using aggressive tactics to deny or delay payment. You need a competent and equally aggressive auto accident lawyer to stand up to them on your behalf. Call Feroleto Law at (716) 854-0700 today for a free evaluation of your Buffalo car accident claim.
