Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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.
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
You can read more about how to find a lawyer for a car accident 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.
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.
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? Read our full article here.
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.

How a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer From Oresky & Associates, PLLC Can Help You

A motorcycle accident lawyer in New York City can help you understand your legal options. We handle motorcycle accidents, and one of the ways we help our clients is by carefully evaluating your losses. This way, you can avoid accepting an insurance settlement that does not fairly compensate you.

We can:

  • Gather evidence, such as police or accident reports, photographs, videos, witness statements, and other documentation that shows liability or wrongdoing

You Deserve to Be Made Whole After a Motorcycle Accident

We know how difficult life can be after a motorcycle accident or other type of personal injury. On top of the immediate medical expenses a motorcycle accident can cause, you may also suffer from a reduced capacity to work and lost wages. Lost future earnings can represent significant damages to an injured party.  When we prepare our cases for trial, significant lost earnings claims are submitted to an economist to project a client’s future damages.

This is important so that our clients receive just compensation for their injuries and damages.

Our Goal Is Seeking Just Compensation

A motorcycle accident may result in horrific injuries. Although a well-fitting helmet can reduce your risk of severe brain injury, motorcycles offer little protection for riders and passengers.

That is why a motorcycle accident lawyer works hard to seek fair compensation for you and your family. Each accident case is different, and there are several factors that affect your specific damages. Damages may include:

  • Lost union benefits
  • Lost pay
  • Pain and suffering caused by injuries
  • Future pain and suffering caused by injuries
  • Loss of services
  • Surgery
  • Hospitalization
  • Rehabilitation or skilled nursing care
  • Prescriptions
  • Property damage and temporary transportation
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Wrongful death

We invite you to call (718) 993-9999 for a free consultation to learn what damages we could seek for you.

Types of Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcycle accident lawyer with Oresky & Associates, PLLC can help you seek damages. We can help after many types of motorcycle and other kinds of traffic accidents, including:

You deserve a legal advocate by your side to help you seek compensation after a motorcycle accident.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in New York City

With more than 8.5 million residents, New York City has more residents than any other city in America. There are approximately two million vehicles registered to city residents, including cars, commercial vehicles, taxis, and motorcycles.

Here are the leading causes of motorcycle accidents based upon our observation:

  • Drivers following motorcycles too closely
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcycles
  • Drivers who open their car doors in the path of an oncoming motorcycle
  • Drivers who change lanes into the path of a motorcycle

Motorcycles are smaller and more difficult to see at night or in poor visibility. Motorcycle operators can help make themselves more visible by wearing reflective strips on their helmet or clothes and making sure that their headlamp is always on.
