Fighting To Protect Your Rights After A Crash
Motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of hundreds of New Yorkers each year. Even if a crash is not fatal, it may easily involve serious and life-altering injuries, including brain injuries, amputations, burns, fractures or severe neck, back, shoulder and/or knee injuries.
Where can you turn when the worst case actually happens? The lawyers at Ellis Law handle auto accidents involving negligent and reckless drivers. We are experienced in handling driver, passenger and pedestrian injuries.
What makes us different? Our immediate response when you need us. Phones are answered 24/7 — call 1-800-LAW-7777. We have a mobile law office that makes home and hospital visits around the clock. Se habla español.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a motor vehicle accident, seek medical attention immediately. If possible, you should also record what happened. Write down the names and addresses of other drivers and witnesses, insurance information, license numbers, weather conditions, traffic conditions and anything else that seems important.
Types Of Cases We Handle
At Ellis Law, P.C., we have personal injury attorneys who have helped clients just like you who have suffered traumatic injury or property damage in the following situations:
- Semi-truck, 18-wheeler and tractor-trailer accidents
- Bus accidents and train wrecks that injure passengers
- Ride-share accidents, including Uber and Lyft
- Motorcycle accidents, pedestrian hit-and-runs and bicycle crashes
- Recreational vehicle accidents involving boats, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles and three- and four-wheelers
- Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims and insurance litigation
Whether a head-on crash, a rear-end collision, a rollover involving an SUV or an intersection accident, we will uncover the cause. We know how to identify negligent actions such as failure to yield right of way; driver distractions from mobile phone use, alcohol or drug use; or a road design defect that made a section of highway dangerous.
What Is The Most Critical Thing? Calling Us Right Away.
After the accident, please contact Ellis Law as soon as possible. We will send one of our staff investigators to find out what happened and start preparing your case (e.g., measure skid marks, take photographs, interview witnesses, etc.).
An entire team of insurance experts is already working to defend against your claim. We need to prepare to fight them on your behalf — beginning immediately after your accident.
