According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a car accident happens to someone, somewhere in the United States, every 10 seconds of every day. Unfortunately, car accidents do not "just happen." In almost all cases — especially in the most serious and deadly ones — someone is to blame.
At Godosky & Gentile, our lawyers handle personal injury claims on behalf of people harmed as the result of serious motor vehicle accidents in New York City and throughout the surrounding region. We help our clients hold accountable the parties who caused their accident, and help them maximize the compensation they receive from personal injury claims.

Our firm's reputation as a leader in the field of injury law has led U.S. News & World Report to award us a Tier One ranking — the highest possible — in their list of Best Law Firms. One of our firm's partners is a well-respected editor of Warren's Negligence in the New York Courts, a leading legal treatise.

Personal Service And Attentive Communication
The level of personal attention our firm provides is just as important as the quality of the legal representation we provide to injured parties and their families.
The key is being willing to accept fewer cases so that you can concentrate on giving the details of each case, and each individual client more attention. By working as a team and drawing upon each other's experiences, we ensure that whenever clients have questions or concerns, someone who is familiar with them and their cases will be available to respond.
Our approach has led to many multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements, including:
- A $9.1 million verdict for a man with traumatic amputation of leg due to motor vehicle accident.
- A $4.6 million verdict for a woman who sustained a fractured ankle in an automobile accident.
- A $3.4 million settlement for a man who sustained a fractured pelvis and leg in an auto accident with a defendant driver who was intoxicated.
Who Is Liable For A Car Accident?
Assigning fault (legal liability) for a motor vehicle accident is a matter of deciding who was negligent. In many cases, prompt investigation will reveal what rule or rules were violated — and by whom. In others, the answers may be harder to find such as where the design of a car or even if an intersection or road was the major cause of the wreck.
Because of this, our attorneys look at every possible source of information (police reports, statutes, etc.) to build a compelling re-creation of each auto crash, SUV rollover or other motor vehicle accident case we accept. To accomplish this, and to prepare cases to win at trial from the very beginning, our firm employs a full-time investigator and works with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts as needed.
