I Am Here To Help If You Are Injured In A Motor Vehicle Accident
A motor vehicle accident can change a life forever in split seconds. If you or a loved one is seriously injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident or truck accident, it is important to enlist experienced legal representation in order to recover the full amount you deserve to cover medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
At Robert A. Becher, Attorney at Law, in Albany, I represent individuals who are injured in motor vehicle accidents that are caused by someone else’s negligence and represent families who have lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by someone else. These cases are complex and aggressively defended by insurance company representatives. I bring over four decades of personal injury law experience to every case, along with a large network of medical professionals and other experts who will help me build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
Understanding New York’s No-Fault Insurance Structure
New York is among a handful of states that have no-fault insurance coverage. This means if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, the insurance you recover for injuries comes from the insurance policy on the vehicle you were riding in no matter who was at fault. The no-fault coverage pays for all current and future medical costs, lost wages, therapeutic costs and property loss up to $50,000. Any damages sought beyond that are pursued through a separate lawsuit.
The most important information for injured parties to understand is they need to act promptly once they are injured. It is critical to collect as much evidence as possible from an accident scene and interview witnesses as soon as possible following an accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, contact me as soon as possible so I can begin developing your case.
I represent clients throughout upstate New York who are injured in:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Rideshare accidents
- Public transportation accidents
Why A Lawyer May Be Necessary
Like all businesses, insurance companies are interested in making a profit. Because they are worried about their own bottom line, they seek to minimize the amount they pay out in injury claims. It often requires legal action to obtain the full amount an injured party deserves. My more than 40 years of experience handling thousands of injury cases provide me the insights to accurately value cases and maximize the amount my clients recover.
It is crucial to remember that there are no upfront costs, and I only get paid if I help you obtain a recovery, either through a negotiated settlement or at trial. Because I am a solo practitioner, my clients are assured of working directly with me from the initial consultation through the resolution of their case. That is something that larger law firms cannot promise. I also emphasize clear communication throughout, so you will always know the status of your case and all of your options.
