Nassau County Car Accident Attorney
Causes of Car Accidents and Cases of Negligence
Finding the cause of your car accident and who was responsible is the key to your
personal injury case. Without being able to show liability, your claim can be denied or devalued. For nearly 2 decades, The Law Offices of Charles R. Gueli has focused on the area of personal injury law. Our firm's experience, along with our commitment to your case, allows us to furnish the high-level representation car accident victims need. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious or
catastrophic injury, we are the firm many have relied on for aggressive protection of an individual's rights to compensation.
Personal injury cases revolve around the subject of negligence. This means that someone lacked reasonable care, thereby causing your accident and subsequent injuries. In our state, the rule of "pure comparative negligence" is used in personal injury situations. Once the degree of fault in an accident is determined, any awards or damages are paid based on the percentages of liability found. For instance, if you are found to be 30% responsible for the accident, the amount of damages that you can receive will be reduced by that amount.

Pursuing Fair Compensation for Car Accident Victims
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 6 leading causes of automobile accidents were, in descending order, distracted drivers, driver fatigue, drunk driving, speeding, aggressive driving and weather. Of note, with the exception of weather all of these factors point to drivers who were negligent. Even on the subject of weather, if a driver does not take reasonable precautions they may be found to be the cause of an accident. By far, the majority of incidents which resulted in severe injuries or
wrongful deaths were due to driver negligence.
We investigate exactly what occurred in your accident. Our legal team reviews the physical evidence as well as conducting accident-site investigations. Our attorneys review and analyze witness statements, police reports and other pertinent information. We make ourselves well prepared to take on all phases of your case, including preparing, presenting and negotiating your claim for maximum compensation to an insurer. Commonly, it will entail bringing your case to trial and pursing the most favorable results possible.
We know that accident victims frequently have the additional burden of mounting financial difficulties. These problems are usually brought about by an inability to work due to injury plus the high cost of medical care and treatment. For many, there may be the need to receive medical assistance in the future. Our attorneys know how to assess your case for its actual worth. Based on our experienced appraisal of your case, we can then seek compensation that will truly resolve the losses you have experienced.
