What to do after being hurt in an accident
- Check if you or anyone else needs urgent medical attention
- Immediately call the police to make an accident report
- Receive medical care as soon as possible, including imaging and tests
- Contact your insurance company to let them know if you have a potential third-party claim against a negligent individual
- Reach out to receive legal guidance and representation to begin pursuing your claim, case, or lawsuit
- Work with your attorney to formulate a smart strategy based on both statutory law and case precedent
- Follow the process of pursuing your claim to the best of your ability while using the talent and knowledge of your attorney to maximize the chances at receiving fair compensation.
Make sure you file a claim in time
In most New York civil cases, injured parties have the right to file a lawsuit within three years of the date of the injury. This deadline is known as a “statute of limitations,” and it prevents people from suing others for accidents or crimes in which evidence has expired.
Not all personal injury cases must be filed within three years, however. Please consult the official New York Statute of Limitations Chart to determine the amount of time you have to file.

Dealing with insurance after an injury (the smart way)
Your insurance company adjusters may appear to have your best interest at heart, but their primary objective is to look out for their bottom line. They will investigate your claim and try to pay you as little as possible for your injuries and damages. Your personal injury attorney can help you recover compensation by negotiating on your behalf.

Why you should go to the doctor even if you don’t feel very hurt
No matter how bad your injury seems, do not delay in seeking medical attention after your accident. Many times, symptoms do not show up until several days, weeks, or even months after the fact, so you will need an examination from a medical professional to determine the severity of your injury.
Because the insurance company may use your doctor’s report to help determine your settlement, be as specific as possible with any statements you make at the hospital or doctor’s office. Keep detailed records and receipts of any medical services you receive so that your Long Island personal injury attorney can help you receive the right amount of compensation for medical expenses.
