What is a personal injury claim?

When an individual is injured through the fault of another party, he or she can file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for their injuries. This claim allows the injured party to seek all appropriate damages from the at-fault party or, more typically, his or her insurance company.

Why do I need a personal injury attorney in New York?

After you or a loved one become injured as a result of someone’s carelessness or neglect, there are many things that happen at once. While you and your family are healing, you may receive medical bills, doctor’s notices, and insurance letters. Several parties ranging from third-party insurance companies to the other party’s attorney may attempt to contact you in an attempt to give you a lowball offer of “compensation” for your injury.

All of this can be extremely distressing when you are trying to heal and focus on recovering your life and livelihood. For that reason, a personal injury attorney can be indispensable when it comes to securing peace of mind and the maximum compensation you deserve.

How is negligence for personal injury determined?

When determining negligence, the courts and juries will typically look at whether a normal person would have acted in the same manner given the same circumstances. In the state of New York, the definition of negligence typically includes an individual’s failure to act or failure to uphold their legal duty of care. For example, a driver’s failure to follow the rules of the road in a car accident case would likely lead to a finding of negligence against them.

How much does a personal injury attorney cost?

We accept cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that your fees come out as a percentage of the final settlement. This percentage is determined before the case begins. If we do not win a case for you, there would not be any fee. That’s right—you don’t pay unless we win.

What types of damages are available?

Injured victims are typically able to recover compensation for economic costs (medical expenses, lost wages/earning capacity, etc.) and non-economic costs (pain and suffering, mental anguish, etc.). In some cases, punitive damages may be available depending on whether the Defendant acted willfully or recklessly.

What kind of personal injury cases do you take?

We accept all types of injury claims, including those involving boat accidents, airplane accidents, brain injuries, spine injuries, construction accidents, offshore injuries, motor vehicle accidents and more. We also handle wrongful death claims if you lost a loved one in an accident.
