Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
