A: Hi there – first, I’m terribly sorry about your matter. It sounds awful. It is difficult for any attorney to assess what the case is worth without knowing more information, such as the extent of your injuries. There are certain thresholds that need to be met in New York in order to bring a cause of action against the driver.

I would highly suggest that you consult an attorney. Our office has handled many cases similar to yours.

Wishing you the best of luck and good health,

Jon

A: I'm sorry about your accident. Based on the limited details here, it would be difficult to make any assessments about your case. More information would be needed about the extent of your injuries (which I hope are not serious), how the accident took place, and other factors. Once information materializes in the form of medical records, your attorney would be in a better position to give you more meaningful insight about the strengths of your case. I wish you good luck in a healthy recovery.
