Car Accident Cases in NY

Often referred to as the Brooklyn of Upstate New York, Troy is a bustling city filled with quaint local shops, busy nightlife, and lots of college students. And, like all other cities and towns in New York State – and in the country, for that matter – car accidents happen in Troy on a daily basis. Although car accidents are such a common occurrence in and around Troy, it is not always easy to know what to do if and when it happens to you. This is especially true if you have suffered injuries due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence.

The attorneys at Hacker Murphy represent victims of car accidents in the greater Troy area; and, we continually help our clients recover full compensation for their injuries and resulting losses. Our experienced, skilled Troy car accident attorneys have the knowledge and available resources to ensure our clients’ legal rights are preserved and protected.

After the initial chaos subsides, it is possible that the injuries you suffer in a car accident caused by someone else may affect you and your family for the rest of your life. It may be difficult for you to return to work and take care of your family – both financially and physically. The medical bills may seem insurmountable, as you may have to receive extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Not to mention the emotional stress and physical pain. When so much depends on you recovering the compensation you deserve, it is important that you hire the best possible Troy car accident law firm around.

Don’t try to deal with the aftermath all by yourself.

At the law firm of Hacker Murphy, our experienced attorneys and legal team work with car accident victims to not only “get through” the legal process of recovery, but to successfully navigate the system.

Our attorneys, paralegals, and support staff deal directly with the following entities:

  • Insurance companies
  • Defense counsel
  • Expert witnesses and specialists
  • Law enforcement
  • The courts

In addition to directly communicating with these various individuals, services that we regularly perform for our clients who have suffered injuries in Troy car accidents include the following:

  • We take care of filing the necessary paperwork.
  • We ensure filing deadlines are met – including New York’s statute of limitations.
  • We hire any necessary experts who may strengthen our clients’ cases and claims for compensation.
    • We have significant resources and have developed many relationships with accident reconstructionists, economic experts, and medical professionals.
  • We evaluate our clients’ cases to determine strengths, weaknesses, and potential compensation value.

What type of evidence is there in a Troy car accident case?

As part of our thorough evaluation and preparation of a car accident case, our goal is to obtain a maximum financial recovery for each and every client whom we represent.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

  • 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.
