Thousands of New Yorkers are injured in car accidents every year. Many of them suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head and brain injuries and neurological problems.

At the Manhattan law office of Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., we are committed to helping people injured in car crashes maximize the compensation they receive for their injuries. Our firm has a record of success spanning more than 50 years in motor vehicle accident cases. Allow us to help you and your family get the full, fair recovery you need and deserve.

Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C. | Serving Car Accident Victims Since 1965

We have successfully represented many car crash victims, obtaining many millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, including in complex cases involving uninsured and underinsured motorists as well as bad faith insurance claim denials.

While each case is unique, there are some common behaviors that contribute to car accidents:

  • Driver inattention or distraction, including the increasingly common but deadly behavior of using a cellphone or texting while driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Tailgating
  • Disregard for stop signs and red lights
  • Turning improperly (sudden left-hand turns; turning right across a crosswalk without looking)
  • Unsafe lane changes; failing to check one's blind spot
  • Speeding

The fact that these behaviors are common does not mean they are acceptable. Drivers are always expected to be paying attention and to be in control of their vehicles.

Our car accident lawyers prepare every case as if it will go to trial. By preparing for trial we are ready to negotiate from a position of strength. If negotiations do not yield a good settlement offer, we're ready to fight in court. We handle all personal injury cases from inception through settlement negotiations and trial.

We provide a free initial consultation, and all our auto accident cases are handled on a contingency basis, so there are no legal fees unless we collect money damages for your injuries.

Sample Car Crash Case Results

$1.95 million settlement for motor vehicle accident for 66-year-old mother who suffered fractured hip requiring total hip replacement (with subsequent infection requiring further hospitalization and surgery), and 36-year-old daughter who suffered multiple injuries including broken ribs.
