According to the New York Department of Health, annually, more than 136,000 people end up in emergency rooms after motor vehicle crashes, and more than 12,000 are hospitalized. Approximately 1,098 are killed.

In most cases, every one of these types of crashes can be attributed to avoidable human error. It’s imperative not to try to represent yourself in interactions with the other driver or their insurance company following a wreck. You need an advocate who can protect you from having your words twisted against you by an insurance adjuster who is eager to devalue your claim.
