Passengers  injured in motor vehicle accidents should be aware of the procedures that are in place to process medical treatment and litigation. Some people do not realize that No-Fault will cover the medical expenses for a passenger of a vehicle; not just the driver. It is important to notify the medical providers that the injuries are the result of a motor vehicle accident so that the No-Fault forms are completed in a timely fashion. This will avoid time consuming corrections after the fact. As far as litigation is concerned, one particular point often evokes feelings of discomfort on the part of passengers. It is quite often in the best interest of the passenger to file the suit against the driver of the vehicle they were in as well as the driver of the other vehicle. This is due to the fact that a question of liability may exist which is indeterminable at the time the lawsuit is filed. In order to ensure that the passenger will be compensated for the injuries they sustained, the driver of both vehicles should be named as Defendants.  More often than not, this means that passengers should have a different personal injury attorney than the driver of the vehicle they were riding in.  There are extenuating circumstances that are exceptions to this thought however.  One thing is for sure though.  Seeking the advice of legal counsel as soon after the accident as possible can strengthen your case.  Not because the attorney will change or shape the story of what happened, but rather, because the attorney will guide the processing of the case from the onset to help expedite your claim and move you towards any possible recovery.

New York Uncontested Divorce

On July 21, 2011, in Divorce, Family Law, by John A. Weber IV, ESQ.

Uncontested Divorce

In the past few months we have received a lot of phone calls from people who either attempted to file their own uncontested divorce or hired the cheapest attorney they could find to file their uncontested divorce for them.  Unfortunately, these folks have found out the hard way, that mistakes in the paperwork or the filings of these uncontested types of divorce can lead to serious delays and stress.  Although an uncontested divorce is not as technically challenging as a contested divorce may be, it should still be taken seriously.  An uncontested divorce controls the manner in which a marriage is dissolved.  Issues of child custody, child support, maintenance, and property distribution are all at stake when these divorce papers are prepared and filed.  It is very important that you find a competent professional to prepare and file your divorce.  Saving several months time and a lot of money that it takes to fix mistakes in the divorce process is well worth the slightly higher cost that you may pay.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Law Firm of Vaughn, Weber & Prakope, PLLC at (516) 858-2620!
