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.

How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation. Want to learn more about car accident settlements? Read our full article here.
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.
Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
Why do I need a car accident lawyer; can’t I just call the insurance company myself and try to get a settlement?
Insurance companies have skilled attorneys working to protect them as well as adjusters whose job it is to resolve claims for as little money as possible. Car accident victims representing themselves will usually be at a significant disadvantage. You should have skilled personal injury attorneys at your side, like those at Oresky & Associates, fighting for your rights, with a proven track record of obtaining over $300 Million Dollars in verdicts and settlements for New York accident victims. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New York car accident attorney.
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. 
What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
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 Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident.

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.
