Been Involved in a Car Accident?
Whether you are involved in an accident on the way to take in a show at the Apollo theater, or after grabbing a bite at Red Rooster, or driving or walking on one of Harlem's iconic streets, it is important to understand what your legal rights and responsibilities are. Your actions right after an accident can have a significant impact on your potential case. It is important to do the following things after an accident:
1. Call 911
2. Take photos of the scene and any damage and injuries
3. Do not make any statements regarding the accident to the other driver
4. File a no-fault application to get benefits for your lost wages and medical bills paid
5. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer
Following these rules can help preserve your case and maximize your potential compensation.
CAUSES OF CAR CRASHES:
- Distracted driving
- drunk driving
- following your vehicle too closely
- failure to obey traffic signs or signals
NO FAULT INSURANCE - GET YOUR NO FAULT CLAIM FILED WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER THE ACCIDENT
Because New York is a No-Fault state, meaning that your own coverage is supposed to pay for your medical bills regardless of whether the other car is at fault.

If your case involves damages less than $25,000, your case will be heard in the New York City Civil Court. If your case involves damages greater than $25,000, your case will be heard in the Civil Term of the Supreme Court.
