How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

If you, or a loved one, are suffering physical or emotional injuries due to the negligence of another person or entity, you may have a case. To determine if you have a personal injury case, two of the main factors to establish are liability and damages.

What damages are subject to compensation in a NY personal injury case?

Every case is unique. However, some of the most common damages include pain and suffering, loss of wages, and medical expenses (current and future) resulting from the injury.

How much does a New York personal injury lawyer cost?

All of our cases are on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not have to pay an attorney’s fee unless we obtain compensation for you. The fee is based upon a percentage of the amount recovered.

How should I choose a law firm to represent me?

In selecting an attorney or law firm, choose a firm with extensive experience in handling cases similar to yours. The law firm should have highly qualified attorneys capable of handling the trial, appeals, and other procedural matters to obtain the most beneficial result. You should pay particular attention to the firm’s reputation as well as its history of success in obtaining significant verdicts and settlements. Most importantly, you want a firm that will place your interests above all else and obtain full compensation for your injury.
