Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
What Happens if the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured we can file an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle’s insurance policy.  Automobile insurance policies written for New York State motorists are required to have uninsured protection.  This insurance will provide financial compensation to you, if the at fault driver does not have insurance. If you must file through your own insurer, you need a skilled law firm to help you recover the maximum money damages available.
What are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.
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.
Can I Sue For A Work-Related Injury?
You can sue for a work-related injury under certain conditions. Typically, employers in New York have immunity from personal injury lawsuits, but there are exceptions. There may be other liable parties (other than your employer) who do not have this immunity. You can read our full blog post here to find out more.
What Damages Are Available if I’m Injured in a Car Crash?
Damages are recoverable for past and future pain and suffering, economic loss, such as lost wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation, therapy, and long-term residential care will also be considered damages under the law.  Union members may recover lost future benefits.  Other damages are recoverable and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
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: 
  • Experience in personal injury law—and with car accidents, specifically
  • Results—financial value of settlements and awards
  • Positive testimonials that speak to you

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.
