Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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 is life like after a spinal cord injury?
The amount of independence and movement is different for each person depending on where on the spine the injury occurred. Every person who sustains a spinal cord injury will have a different lifestyle than before the injury.
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 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.
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.
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.
Can I Get Compensated if I Was Partly at Fault for My Car Accident?
The short answer is yes - many times, you can be compensated if you are partly at fault. Again, New York is a no-fault insurance state in which your own insurance pays for your out-of-pocket costs such as limited lost wages and medical bills up to $50,000.  When you make a claim for pain and suffering as well as certain economic loss above no-fault, the percentages of fault will be considered in your recovery. Your injury from your car accident may have a certain value, however, fault will be taken into consideration at the time of trial or settlement.

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
