During the winter season, slip-and-fall accidents on ice or snow are a common occurrence in New York and across the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), about 1 million Americans are injured every year due to falling on ice and snow.
Residents and travelers in New York have to be prepared for some of the most extreme weather conditions. From the hot, muggy summers to the cold, snowy winters. Unfortunately, these icy winter conditions create a high chance of getting into a driving accident.
Are you an undocumented immigrant dealing with injuries from a car accident, truck accident, bicycle accident, work accident, construction accident, pedestrian accident, or another personal injury caused by someone else's negligence? You should know that your status as an undocumented immigrant does not prevent you from seeking justice.
Well, that depends. Depends on what, you say? Depends on whose fault the accident is, whether you and/or the other car have collision or property damage insurance, and depends on how quickly you want your money.
NO, NO, NO. You are not! While New York requires automobile owners to carry liability motor vehicle insurance on their cars with a $25,000/$50,000 minimum limit, all too often, insurance policies are canceled due to non-payment, but people continue to drive their cars or trucks with no insurance.
