Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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. Want to learn more about how to make an accident report? 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.
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.
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 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.
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 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?

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
