Saratoga Springs Car Accident Attorneys

Experienced Legal Defense Serving Car Accident Victims

Each and every day, residents and visitors of Saratoga and Saratoga Springs are involved in car crashes due to someone else’s fault. More often than not, the first thing these victims do is call their auto insurance companies. And, while you should notify your insurance company of any accidents, one thing you should consider a top priority is speaking with an experienced Saratoga car accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Under no circumstance should you speak with the defendant’s insurance company before speaking with a car accident attorney. Insurance companies seek to pay injured victims as little as possible as quickly as possible. They care about their bottom line more than ensuring that victims receive just recoveries. The legal team at Hacker Murphy understands that car accident victims are not on the same playing field as the sometimes scrupulous insurance companies. That is why we pledge to fight to protect your legal interests so you can recover the compensation you deserve.

Whatever Type of Negligence Caused the Accident, You Need a Saratoga Car Accident Attorney Whom You Can Trust.

Thousands of innocent drivers and passengers are injured or killed in car accidents on the roadways and highways of New York State each year. In 2014 alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that there were 32,675 deaths resulting from traffic accidents. Unfortunately, Saratoga is not immune to the oftentimes devastating results of car accidents. Whether a defendant caused your car accident due to distraction, recklessness, fatigue, impairment, ignorance, or plain old carelessness, the Saratoga car accident attorneys at Hacker Murphy have experience successfully reaching favorable settlement agreements and obtaining court verdicts.

Distracted Driver Claims.

Distracted driving continues to be one of the leading causes of car accidents across the United States, and more specifically, Saratoga and Saratoga Springs. And, there is little evidence that people are getting the message. New York continues to impose stiffer penalties on those caught texting while driving, but it is still a major problem. Whether through typing numbers, texting, emailing, updating social media posts, or snapping selfies, inappropriate cell phone use while driving is negligent and can be lethal – not to mention that the car accidents caused by this type of distracted driving are 100 percent preventable.

Potential Recoveries.

The tenacious Saratoga car accident attorneys at Hacker Murphy can help you and your loved ones seek and obtain financial compensation for different types of monetary and non-economic damages following a car accident:

  • Medical expenses

  • Property loss and/or damage

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
