Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

We have taken negligent parties, who refused to settle, to court in a trial before and if that is what it takes for you to receive just compensation, we are ready to do it again. Our team is here to represent you throughout the entire process.

What does a personal injury lawyer do?
Personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for injuries and damages that someone else’s negligence caused. They do this by helping clients with insurance claims and/or civil lawsuits. Want to learn more? Read our full article here.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
What should I do after a car accident?
After a car accident, you should always call for help. While you wait for help to arrive, check for injuries—both your own and those of others involved in the collision. Be sure to accept necessary medical attention from any paramedics on the scene and follow up with a health care provider as soon as possible in the days following the accident. Last but not least, connect with a lawyer––and do it fast. Get more information on what to do after an auto accident by reading our full post.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
You do not need a personal injury lawyer, but one can benefit you in many ways following an accident resulting in serious physical harm. Severe injuries can lead to expensive medical care, extended absences from work, pain and suffering, and other damages. Read our full article to find out more about when it's right to hire a personal injury lawyer. 
How do I find a lawyer for a car accident?
Finding a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case requires research—there simply is no way around it. Begin your homework by searching online for car accident lawyers in your area (New York City, Bronx, or Queens, for example). As you review their websites, check for the following characteristics:

Who Do You Call If You Get Hit By an 18-wheeler?

If you are injured in an 18-wheeler wreck, you should first call the police and ambulance. You want to file a police report as soon as possible so that all information about the truck, the truck driver, and other information about the vehicle involved and the incident is accurately and officially documented.

Make sure to have someone take pictures of the accident scene. If you are hurt and with a family member or friend, ask them to take pictures of the vehicles.  The more pictures you have later, the better. They will deter any question of facts that might come up later. Photographs can be used later to document the progression and severity of your injuries, especially those that are not immediately visible.

Obtaining information from any witnesses, including their contact information, is very important.  Witness evidence and testimony could prove helpful if the other side disputes any facts. If you were too severely injured to secure the above, much of this information should be in the police report.

Understanding Your Rights After An 18-Wheeler Accident

You have the right to justice. Personal injury claims are negligence claims. When another’s negligence has caused you harm, you are entitled to justice by law. The negligent party is legally accountable for the consequences of their negligent actions.

When you are injured, an insurance adjuster might reach out to you quickly after the accident. Remember that an insurance adjuster is not a mediator or a neutral party. They work for the company that is liable. Their goal is to save that company, and themselves, money.

They might also try to convince you that their client bears no responsibility, was not negligent, and that you have no valid claim when you actually do. It is highly suggested that you speak with a truck injury attorney before speaking to an insurance adjuster.
