Westchester County Car Accident Attorneys
Our NY car accident lawyers have recovered millions of dollars for injured crash victims
In Westchester, car accidents often come out of nowhere. Maybe you were commuting on I-287, running errands on W 225th St in White Plains, heading to a restaurant by Peekskill Bay, or another scenario. It just takes one red-light-runner, drunk driver, or negligent motorist to change your life.
Many car accident victims are in similar situations: in severe pain, unable to work or complete everyday tasks, and uneasy about the medical bills stacking up next to monthly expenses. You're looking at an uncertain future. We can help you find your way forward.
Never settle for less than what your claim is worth
When the insurance company calls and offers to settle your case quickly, it may feel like a lifeline. Unfortunately, it isn't. Insurance companies always want to settle cases for as little as possible. The industry earns billions annually by denying claims and short-changing seriously injured accident victims.
Demand better. In Westchester County, Giampa Law stands up to the insurance companies. With one of our Westchester County car accident lawyers on your side, you can feel confident that your claim is moving forward while you focus on healing.
If you were injured in a car accident in White Plains, Yonkers, Greenburgh, New Rochelle, Spring Valley, Ossining, or anywhere else in Westchester County, contact us for a free case consultation. At no cost to you, a member of our team can estimate the value of your claim and help you decide what to do next.

- Rear-end accidents.
- Intersection crashes.
- Pedestrian accidents.
- Drunk drivers.

We see the devastating effects of accidents on individuals and families in New York every day. Helping injured accident victims regain the physical, mental, and financial health that was stolen from them by negligent drivers is what fuels our passion to win. Giampa Law fights to protect accident victims' rights. We don't give in. We dig in until we get results.

What is the average car accident claim settlement in Westchester, NY?
The average Westchester car accident settlement can be tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. How much you get for a car accident is affected by the type and severity of the injury, fault, and available insurance and assets.
Typically, the more severe and life-altering an injury is, the more compensation a victim can receive.
Common car accident injuries for which you can collect compensation include:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries like brain hemorrhages and concussions.
- Spinal cord injuries.
- Back and spine injuries like herniated or slipped discs and fractured vertebrae.
- Neck and shoulder pain.
- Torn ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
- Internal injuries.
- Cuts, lacerations, and punctures.
- Fractured bones in the wrist, ankle, leg, arms, skull, and hands.
- Nerve damage.
If it was a fatal crash, the victim's family is also often entitled to compensation.
The insurance company doesn't value your health or your comfort. The goal of any insurance adjuster is to reject a claim or settle it for as little as possible. They can't get away with much if you have the attorneys from Giampa Law on your side. We know how the system works in Westchester County. We are relentless in pursuit of the results you deserve.
Why does fault matter in 'no-fault' New York?
New York is a no-fault state, meaning that if you are injured in a car accident, you file a claim with your car insurance company first – regardless of who caused the crash. However, if you have a significant injury, you are usually eligible to "step outside" the no-fault system and file a liability claim for additional compensation. Our legal team can analyze your situation and explain your options in a free consultation.
