Motor Vehicle Accidents

Richard Gurfein New York City personal injury lawyer talks about the need to file a lawsuit quickly with Q104.3's Maria Molito.


The sheer number of motor vehicle accidents in New York that seriously injure and kill thousands of people everyday might lead you to conclude that motor vehicle accident lawsuits are no more than routine court cases. They are not. In fact, determining legal responsibility in an auto accident is anything but open-and-shut. At Gurfein Douglas, you can rely on the scientific training of our two partners to uncover the often hidden technical details of your auto accident case that the untrained eye might miss. Details like the speed of vehicles at time of impact and other laws of physics and scientific principles that support your side of the story. Determining legal responsibility in a court of law requires careful accident reconstruction analysis, and the ability to explain the often very technical findings of this analysis to a jury. With degrees in engineering and biology hanging on walls right alongside our law diplomas, the New York motor vehicle accident lawyers at Gurfein Douglas are your Lawyers With An Edge when fighting.

At Gurfein Douglas, our Lawyers With An Edge are prepared to handle any New York auto accident challenge, no matter how complicated, and any adversary, no matter how tough they think they are, to get you the justice, and the compensation, you deserve.
