f you or someone you know has been injured in an automobile accident, do not hesitate to defend the rights you are entitled to. It is important to know that no matter who is at fault, you are entitled to rightful compensation for your injuries resulting from this accident. Our team of car accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP in White Plains, New York are ready around the clock to answer your questions and represent you in getting the compensation you deserve. Your rights are important and we want to ensure they are protected as best as they can be.
Whether or not the accident was your fault, you may still be entitled to collect compensation for lost wages, medical bills and other losses or damages from the insurance company covering the car you were occupying at the time of the incident. This is also true if you were a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle: you are entitled to compensation and benefits from the insurance company covering the driver that hit you, and potentially from your insurance company as well.
If your accident involved a hit and run or if the driver that hit you has little to no insurance, you may still be able to claim compensation and benefits from your own insurance company. To ensure your eligibility, however, you must follow strict guidelines. To get a free consultation and to keep this process as stress-free as possible, contact the Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP White Plains, New York office today.
Although these benefits are helpful if your injury causes you to miss work or if you incur any medical expenses from your incident, they do not cover pain and suffering unless you experience a “serious injury” as defined below:
- Significant disfigurement (such as a scar; however, the injury must be significant enough to cause a reasonable person to view the result as “unattractive, objectionable, or as the subject of pity or scorn”)
- A fracture
- Loss of a fetus
- Significant limitation of use of a body, function, or system
- Permanent consequential limitation of use of a body, organ, or member
- Permanent loss of use of a body, organ, member, function, or system
- An impairment/injury of a non-permanent nature that prevents the victim from conducting his or her usual customary daily activities for a period of at least 90 days during the 180 days immediately following the accident
Understanding all of these stipulations and guidelines are important to protecting your rights as an injury victim, so let the automobile accident attorneys at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP help ease the pain and stress your case may cause you. Call our White Plains office today for a free consultation at (914) 336-5995, or call toll-free, 24/7 at 1800LAW1010 (1-800-529-1010).
Motorcycle accidents are too often the fault of another driver that did not see the motorcycle coming. Due to minimal protection that motorcycles provide, injuries sustained by motorcyclists are much more severe than those driving a car or truck.
Motorcyclists’ rights are not protected under No-Fault insurance, even though injuries sustained are often far more severe. This means that if you are injured while riding a motorcycle and don’t seek proper legal representation, you could be responsible for large medical bills and be rejected compensation for any missed work.
One advantage you have being the victim of a motorcycle accident is that New York State Law does not require you to prove that it was a “serious injury” in order to claim the compensation of those who have been “seriously injured” in a car accident. Therefore, regardless of the severity of the accident, you can collect on your injuries, whereas this is not the case if you are involved in a car accident. Motorcycle accident victims are essentially treated the same as a hit and run victim or as someone who was hit by a motorist who is underinsured, or does not have insurance.
In New York State, there are a multitude of legal hoops to jump through in order to ensure your rights are preserved. Let our White Plains motorcycle accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP®, The Heavy Hitters® guide you through this process. Call our office today for a free consultation at (518) 583-1010, or call us toll-free at 1800LAW1010 (1-800-529-1010).

Commercial Truck Accidents
Unfortunately, over 3,500 people are killed in accidents involving large trucks every year. Even more shocking, over ninety-seven percent of passenger vehicle travelers were killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a truck.
Did you know there are strict laws and regulations in place specifically for drivers in the trucking industry? Everyday trucking procedures are enforced by both state and federal governments with the aforementioned regulations, which control:
- Driver and licensing qualifications
- Hours of service
- Maintenance and inspection procedures
Due to the sheer size and weight of most trucks and tractor trailers, they have the ability to inflict greater damage to smaller vehicles, resulting in more severe injuries. Possible injuries you may suffer after being involved in a truck accident include:
- Broken bones & sprained joints
- Vehophobia (fear of driving)
- Temporary or permanent disability
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Lost limbs
- Other catastrophic injuries
