In May 2019, Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP’s (FKC&S) 58-year-old client, a medical assistant from Wingdale, NY, was driving on Route 22 in Dover, NY. The defendant driver crossed over and struck her head-on. Consequently, FKC&S’s client suffered fractures to her wrist, rib cage and neck, the last of which necessitated surgery. Steven H. Cohen obtained a settlement for the full policy limits with the other driver’s insurance carrier, as well as all the available supplemental underinsured motorist (SUM) insurance limits from our client’s own carrier.
If you are injured in a crash and the other driver is at fault, an experienced lawyer can help you receive compensation from the responsible driver’s car insurance company. In some cases, the losses are significant, and the other driver may not have enough insurance to cover the damages you have suffered. Your lawyer should review your auto insurance policy to obtain the maximum recovery.
By reviewing your personal auto insurance policy, we may discover that you have additional personal injury protection (PIP) for wage loss and medical bills. Furthermore, you may have SUM insurance coverage, which provides money for pain and suffering beyond the limits of the other driver’s insurance coverage. A personal injury lawyer can review everything and file the necessary forms in a timely manner to protect your rights to full compensation.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, time is limited to file a claim. Our experienced attorneys at Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP can help guide you through the process. Please visit www.fkcs.law or call us for a free consultation, (845) 897-5199.
