Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?
When you are involved in a car accident, there is a free consultation. If you have a case, you pay no fees until we win your case. The cost calculates as a percentage of the amount you are awarded as compensation through settlement or jury trial, also known as a contingency fee basis.
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.

Understanding Your Landlord’s Legal Responsibilities

Children who ingest lead paint can end up with cognitive problems, speech impediments, and other serious, permanent brain injuries. Many children with serious lead poisoning are unable to compete in a competitive school environment or eventually perform work in any but the lowest-paying occupations.

In New York, when landlords know that there are children aged seven or younger in their buildings, they must take appropriate steps to safely remove lead paint. Act Quickly to Protect Your Child from Lead Poisoning by contacting an experienced lead poisoning attorney at Oresky & Associates.

If you are concerned that your child may have been exposed to lead in your home, you should get a blood test done right away. If lead poisoning is caught soon enough, medical procedures such as chelation therapy can be used to lessen the impact of the exposure.

If your landlord acted negligently or failed to obey New York’s lead abatement laws, your child may be entitled to monetary compensation for his or her pain and suffering, and other damages. Contact Our New York City Lead Poisoning Attorneys Today for a Free Consultation
