How much is my case worth?

The value of a personal injury claim is dependent upon a number of factors, including the cause of the accident, the degree of negligence involved and the overall damages suffered by the victim, including medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering. Only after thoroughly analyzing the factors at play in your accident can we give you an idea of the fair value of your claim.

What if I can’t afford to hire an attorney?

The good news about hiring a personal injury lawyer is that there is typically no upfront fee. Most personal injury claims are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no fee for the initial consultation and you won’t owe the law firm anything unless your attorney obtains a financial recovery for you.

What does “no-fault” insurance mean?

In a no-fault insurance claim, which is the model used in New York, a motor vehicle accident victim’s own insurance coverage is the first source of compensation for medical bills and other losses, no matter which driver was at fault. If the injury is serious and damages exceed policy limits, however, the victim may pursue additional compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

How will I pay my medical bills?

Personal injury law allows you to pursue compensation for all losses arising from another person’s negligence, including medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering. It is important to work with an attorney who knows how to fully and accurately assess damages so that you are not left with less compensation than you need to recover and rebuild your life.
