Long Island, NY Auto Accident & Motorcycle Injury Attorney
Get the help you need after an automobile or motorcycle crash
A motor vehicle crash is a frightening and often life-changing event. Serious injuries can cause permanent disfigurement, disability and pain. In addition, your medical bills, continued costs of treatments, lost wages and diminished earning capacity can place an overwhelming burden on your family. Lawyer Elan Wurtzel has represented injured victims of car accidents in Long Island and throughout New York City since 1984. Elan holds the negligent parties responsible and strives to maximize your compensation if you have been in injured in an auto, motorcycle or commercial truck accident.
Recovery from motorcycle accident injuries
For many bikers, motorcycles are not just a form of transportation, but a way of life. Yet motorcycles offer no protection if you are in an accident. As a result, accidents involving bikes are usually serious and often fatal. Elan is familiar with the unique aspects of motorcycle crashes — including the maneuverability and response of these machines during an accident and the typical injuries that occur. He calls upon medical experts to testify about such severe injuries as fractures, amputations, brain and spinal damage, and road rash. He also uses accident reconstructionists to recreate the moments leading up to your crash.
Do not sign away your rights
Discuss your case with a qualified Long Island car accident law firm before accepting an offer from your insurance company or any other negligent party who contributed to the accident. To recover that compensation, you usually must also waive your rights to pursue additional damages. Elan can review your offer to determine if it represents the maximum value of your case.
Negotiating with your insurance company
After paying your premiums every month, you expect your insurance company to respond promptly and justly to your requests for compensation. However, it is important to remember that insurance companies are businesses whose primary purpose is generating profits. Initially lowballing its customers benefits a company’s bottom line. With this in mind, Elan refuses to accept less than you deserve. He negotiates for equitable compensation and willingly takes your case to trial if it is in your best interest to do so.
