FAQs

Q Car Accident Scenarios: Whose at Fault?

If you have sustained injuries in a car accident in New York and wish to file a personal injury lawsuit against the other party, you must prove that his or her negligent actions caused the accident. While most people involved in a car accident will attempt to argue that the other party bears more responsibility than they do, damage to each of the vehicles often speaks for itself.

Determining fault by the location of damage in a car accident is just one factor that an investigator considers at an accident scene. He or she also closely evaluate the following:

Whether the car had an anti-lock braking system and if it operated as expected
Crash-worthiness of each of the vehicles
Whether the use or headlights or high beams played a role in the crash
Angle of each steering wheel· Whether either car experienced sudden acceleration just before the crash
The impact point of each vehicle

It’s also one that doesn’t always have straightforward answers. Who pays medical bills after a car accident depends on many factors, including whether your injuries are significant enough to meet New York’s serious injury threshold and therefore bypass its no-fault system.

Q What is the Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations in New York?

The Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Explained:
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, surgeon, anesthesiologist, or other medical professional commits an error that has an adverse effect on the health of the patient. To qualify as medical malpractice, the actions must have deviated significantly from professional health care accepted standards.

‍Malpractices claims can be notoriously difficult to prove, and the burden of proof lies with the patient filing a lawsuit against a medical professional.

In New York, the medical malpractice statute of limitations typically allows victims 2.5 years, or 30- months, from the time of the injury to file a medical malpractice claim, however, there are a number of exceptions to this timeframe or time limit.
