Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents are all too common. Even the most attentive drivers cannot prevent accidents caused by others' negligence. At Zwiebel and Fairbanks, LLP, we help injured motorists pursue the compensation they need after motor vehicle accidents. Our firm has represented people injured in such accidents in New York for more than 30 years.

Every case is unique and needs an experienced personal injury attorney to stand up to the irresponsible driver's insurance company. We use our experience and talent to ensure that the insurance company treats our client fairly. If the insurer will not make an acceptable settlement offer, we have a reputation for being tough and prolific trial attorneys. Our lawyers will not stop until we have gotten the best possible result for you.

Helping You Heal, Fighting For Your Recovery

We also use our experience to make sure our client is receiving the best care available. It is critical to secure thorough medical treatment to ensure we understand the full medical impact of the accident.

It is also important to know your rights to no-fault lost wages, and, if self-employed, lost earnings. Receiving wages paid by no-fault may not help you recover medically, but does provide the security of knowing that your family will remain financially secure. This allows you to focus on getting better. We will fight to obtain the future cost of medical care and necessary equipment. Count on our firm to explore every possible avenue for compensation.

We are active members of the Hudson Valley's motorcycling community, providing knowledgeable counsel to bikers who have been hurt because of others' negligence. We also serve pedestrians, construction workers and others.

Some of the results we have obtained for our clients injured in car crashes include:

  • $272,500 settlement for a Saratoga-area truck driver hit by another truck as he waited in his disabled truck for a tow.
  • $600,000 jury award for an Orange County man struck by a car who suffered bulging discs. There were no witnesses to the accident and our client spoke little English but our trial attorney was able to convince a jury of the merits of the case.
  • $550,000 for an Albany man who suffered the loss of his spleen as a result of the defendant's negligent operation of his car.
  • $400,000 awarded to our client who was rear-ended while stopped waiting to make a left turn. The crash aggravated pre-existing back pain.
