Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident?
You can argue that the best time to hire a car accident lawyer is shortly after your accident happens. By hiring a car accident lawyer from our firm, you:
  • Protect yourself from insurance companies
  • Have a buffer between you and the parties who caused your accident
  • Reduce the risk of your rights being violated
The insurance company may try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. These offers come quickly but generally do not cover your long-term losses. A lawyer from our team will shield you from lowball settlement offers by fighting for the full scope of your damages. You can learn more by reading our full blog post 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.

Fight for the Damages You Deserve

In some cases, we can settle ladder fall accident cases out of court. However, these corporations and their insurers do not want to admit fault or pay out more than they have to, so it is not unusual for them to refuse to offer a fair settlement. If this happens in your case, we can file an injury lawsuit in a New York court and proceed through the necessary steps to have a jury trial. We will not hesitate to file a lawsuit against any liable party, regardless of size.

We pride ourselves on our ability to thoroughly prepare our clients’ cases in order to recover the settlements and verdicts that they are entitled to. We have recovered some of the largest settlements and verdicts in construction accident cases in New York, over the past decade. We will aggressively pursue a settlement agreement or verdict that justly compensates you for the damages that you have suffered.

The damages available in this type of case include:

  • Money Damages for Past Pain and Suffering
  • Money Damages for Future Pain and Suffering
  • Medical Costs
  • Ongoing and Future Care Costs
  • The Cost of Additional Equipment, Including Special Prosthetics or Mobility Aids
  • Lost Wages
  • Loss of Services
  • Lost Union Benefits
  • Diminished Earning Capacity
  • Lost Benefits and Retirement Savings
  • Mental Anguish
  • Other Emotional Damages
