Welcome to Proudfoot Law Firm

Serious auto and other motor vehicle accidents require the guidance of an experienced injury lawyer. Our automobile accident attorneys have decades of practice and a track record of proven results handling auto and motor vehicle accident cases in New York and Pennsylvania. Insurance companies do not always treat injured victims fairly. They try to settle a claim without giving the victim fair compensation. We help level the playing field to help you get the compensation you deserve. We are well-versed in all aspects of insurance law and know how to properly protect an injured client’s interests whether it is through litigation with the responsible party or insurance company, arbitration of underinsured or uninsured claims, or investigation of excess liability policies.

It is important to understand that New York is a no-fault automobile insurance law state. This means you may be entitled to certain benefits provisioned under the Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance Reparations Act. If you would like more information, please visit our No-Fault Auto Insurance page, or reach out to our experienced auto accident lawyers today.

We believe in protecting the rights and welfare of individuals who have been injured in auto accidents, and in holding accountable those who are responsible.


Automobile accidents account for the greatest percentage of personal injury claims in the United States. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), someone in our country is involved in an auto accident every 10 seconds. If you drive or travel in an automobile, odds are that you will be involved in at least one accident. Many of these auto accidents result in significant vehicle damage and serious injury. Protect yourself by wearing a seat belt, observing the rules of the road, and purchasing sufficient auto insurance including liability, uninsured, and underinsured motorists coverage. Liability insurance will protect you in the event you cause an accident. Uninsured and underinsured coverage will help protect you in the event someone else causes an accident and injures you.

We understand that an auto accident can be physically and emotionally draining, financially stressful, and sometimes complex with all of the insurance issues that have to be attended to at the outset of a claim. We can help guide you through the process of collecting no-fault wage and medical benefits, prescriptions for your ongoing health care, as well as compensation for your pain and suffering. Our lawyers can assist you with any personal property damage claim, car rental, towing, and repair issues. We will notify all relevant insurance carriers so you don’t have to deal with them directly. Our office will advise you on how best to complete accident and no-fault forms and reports. We are here to help you and we will protect your claim. Call today!
