How can I win an auto-accident case?
In order to succeed in a motor vehicle accident case you must be able to prove fault on the part of the driver of the motor vehicle. This could be the other driver or even the driver of the car in which you were a passenger.
Cases where fault can usually be established often involve an instance where the defendant driver:
- Runs a red light
- Goes through a stop sign
- Turns left in front of your vehicle
- Crosses the centerline of the highway causing a collision.
Faraci Lange has also handled hundres of cases involving drunk drivers who cause injury to innocent members of the public.

What has to be proved and how is this done?
In auto accident cases in New York an injured victim must also prove what is referred to as a serious injury. Generally this means that you need to have suffered a significant injury that can be objectively verified by a medical test or evaluation. The courts have generally held that complaints of pain alone are not sufficient to meet the serious injury threshold because pain is subjective to the individual.
Faraci Lange has handled thousands of automobile accident cases and has vast experience in working with treating physicians to document serious injuries for purposes of meeting the No Fault threshold. If you have suffered a serious injury as a result of an auto accident, contact Faraci Lange.
How can Faraci Lange help win my case?
Once this serious injury threshold is met, then all injuries, even those that do not meet the threshold on their own, may be considered by the jury. Thus, attorneys at Faraci Lange focus their energies on explaining the nature and consequences of your injuries to the jury using many types of demonstrative evidence and visual aids to accomplish this. No law firm in Western New York utilizes technology in the courtroom more often or more effectively than Faraci Lange.
