Car Accident

When car accidents cause serious injury, the O’Connell and Aronowitz Personal Injury litigation team investigates quickly to pinpoint the negligence and pursue full damages for your losses.

Most car accidents are caused by inattentive driving or poor decisions behind the wheel. If you have been injured by another driver talking on a cell phone, changing lanes without looking or signaling, tailgating, traveling too fast for weather conditions, or running a red light or stop sign, contact us. Based in Albany with an office in Saratoga Springs, our experienced personal injury trial lawyers represent auto accident victims across the Capital District and upstate New York. We have recovered compensation in:

  • Car Wrecks
  • Truck Accidents
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian Knockdowns
  • Motorcycle and Recreational Vehicle Accidents
  • Head-on Collisions
  • Rollovers resulting in a Fatality

Thorough Investigation and Aggressive Representation

Our firm sends investigators to interview witnesses, document damage to vehicles, and analyze skid marks and other evidence at the crash site. When the other driver’s liability is identified, we aggressively pursue the maximum value of your claim. While most are resolved out of court, we prepare every case for the prospect of taking it to a jury. Trial lawyers Steve Coffey, Tom DiNovo and Pam Nichols have collectively tried hundreds of cases and obtained substantial recoveries in car accidents through settlement or verdict.

Your Car Accident Case is contingency based. We collect NO FEES unless we recover damages for you.

Pam Nichols was professional, but warm and easy to talk to. She put me at ease, especially when we ran into roadblocks that had to be tackled along the way. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome and felt that we had the best possible representation!
