Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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 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.
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 Is Fault Determined in a Car Accident?
Fault is determined by the way that the accident happened.  Did a driver go through a light or stop sign?  Was the driver speeding or driving unreasonably under the circumstances?  New York is a comparative fault state, meaning you can still recover some compensation for damages even if you are the mostly at-fault driver. Many times, the crash is a result of both drivers who share percentages of the fault.
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.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
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.

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
