Fierce Advocacy for Victims of Negligent Drivers – NYC Auto Accident Lawyer


If you sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury, broken bones, or other serious injuries, you will be forced to cope with intense pain, emotional distress, medical treatment and rehabilitation, and other hardships.  While navigating the legal process and insurance company traps might take a backseat to obtaining treatment, the financial pressure created by spiraling medical bills and time off work can increase your anxiety and hinder your recovery.  At the Law Offices of Michael E. Talassazan, we use over a decade of litigation experience, an established network of experts and investigators, and a fierce dedication to holding negligent drivers accountable to seek the fullest recovery for our clients.


Why Our New York Auto Accident Law Firm Can Make a Difference


While car accident victims are not technically required to retain an attorney experienced in litigating auto accident claims, your choice can significantly impact your claim.  Mr. Talassazan has built a professional reputation that has garnered recognition as a “Metro Rising Star” by Thomas Reuter Super Lawyer publication, through his tenacity taking on large national insurance companies.  Mr. Talassazan can help you navigate traps set by insurance companies that include attempting to obtain a recorded statement, the release of medical and employment records, and lowball offers.  Although the adjuster for the other driver’s insurance company might seem amicable and helpful, he has one goal, which is to ensure you recover as little as possible.  Insurance companies have a wealth of resources that include a team of defense lawyers, experts, investigators, adjuster, and enormous litigation resources that are devoted to preventing you from obtaining the compensation you are entitled to receive based on the nature of your injuries and other damages.


Our law firm focuses a significant portion of our practice on vehicle accident claims so that we can balance the scales of justice and aggressively pursue a significant settlement or verdict.  Mr. Talassazan is a trial lawyer, so he recognizes that the best way to maximize a settlement is to prepare a persuasive position for trial.  Because he leaves no stone unturned when preparing a case and does not hesitate to take cases to trial, insurance companies recognize the financial risk of attempting to drag out negotiations and insist on unreasonable settlements.  We rely on the most current legal research, thorough investigation of the facts, skilled settlement negotiations, and persuasive advocacy to obtain the financial compensation our clients need to move past their difficult experience.


The Law Offices of Michael E. Talassazan Handles The Full Range of Accident Cases


We handle the full range of motor vehicle accidents throughout New York City, including but not limited to the following:

    • Failure-To-Yield Collisions
    • Drowsy Driving Accidents
    • Roadway Departures
    • Head-On Collisions
    • Intersection Crashes
    • Unsafe Roadways
    • Rear-End Collisions
    • Side Impact Crashes (T-Bone Accidents)
  • Dangerous or Defective Vehicles

  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
    • Bicycle Hit By Car

  • Truck Accidents


While we often use accident reconstruction experts, engineering experts, and others with specialized knowledge to prove the other driver failed to exercise reasonable care (negligence), we also carefully investigate all potential defendants and sources of insurance coverage.  A verdict finding the other driver liable is little more than a moral victory unless the defendant has insurance coverage and assets to satisfy a judgment or settlement.  We recognize that a driver with no or minimal insurance coverage might be “judgment proof,” so we explore all grounds for finding alternative parties liable and explore their ability to pay your medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other applicable damages.
