Yes, you may still be eligible for compensation for your injuries. In New York City, your own insurance company pays for your injuries and the damage to your vehicle, even if you caused the accident. If your insurance limits are not enough to fully compensate you, you may also be able to sue the other driver for your injuries. Avoid accepting blame or apologizing to the other driver, which can be used as evidence against you at trial. Instead, leave it to the judge or jury to decide who is at fault. There are many possible contributing factors or causes of an automobile accident. Your New York City car accident attorney can investigate and evaluate these possibilities and your potential for bringing a successful claim against the involved parties.
