Motor Vehicle Accidents

The backbone of MDAFP’s practice is the defense of motor vehicle accidents. We defend insured drivers, owners of personal and commercial vehicles, rental car agencies, black car/limousines, and construction companies. We have defended the New York City Transit Authority and the Metropolitan Transit Authority in a variety of motor vehicle accidents. The cases we handle often involve primary and excess policies in multi-vehicle and multiple defendant accidents. We have significant experience handling matters involving catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

MDAFP attorneys are thoroughly knowledgeable in all issues which may be raised in a motor vehicle case and explore every possible defense on behalf of our clients. We maintain relationships with leading experts in accident reconstruction and biomechanics to assist in the defense of a case when necessary. We are aggressive in applying New York’s Dram Shop Act in commencing cross-claims and third-party actions against illegal suppliers of liquor when appropriate.

When liability is inevitable, we formulate a medical defense to a motor vehicle accident in the early stages of litigation utilizing medical film reviews and qualified expert testimony. We possess the know-how to properly navigate the New York Insurance Law and have been successful in disposing of many cases on the basis of the New York “serious injury” threshold requirement.

MDAFP is well equipped to handle all aspects of motor vehicle accidents, including negotiations, settlements, trials and appeals.
