HOW TO COUNTER THE SEAT BELT DEFENSE IN A NYC CAR CRASH CASE

Under New York law, a defendant in a car crash case can introduce evidence that the plaintiff was not wearing a seat belt to prove contributory negligence. Under the "seat belt defense" the defendant tries to convince the jury only to award damages for the injuries the plaintiff would have sustained if a seat belt had been worn. If you've been in a car accident and were not wearing a seat belt, this defense can substantially reduce the amount you can recover for your injuries.

RUBIN & LICATESI, P.C. EARNS THREE SETTLEMENTS FOR ITS NEW YORK CLIENTS

Two of our attorneys, senior litigating partner Anthony J. Licatesi and senior trial attorney Jennifer M. Ahlfeld, recently put their litigation and negotiation skills to use to help three of our personal injury clients reach favorable settlements in their cases, totaling more than $2.1 million in compensation.

NEW YORK'S SEAT BELT DEFENSE CAN LIMIT YOUR ACCIDENT COMPENSATION

When you are hurt in a traffic accident in which another driver is negligent, you hope to get full compensation for your injuries. However, the law allows the negligent driver to point the finger at you for any wrong actions on your part.
