Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Why should I contact a spinal cord injury attorney after a spinal cord accident?
The challenges that a spinal cord victim faces are ongoing and life-changing. A skilled attorney who can fight for your rights, compensation, and continuing medical expenses is invaluable.
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 does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? 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.
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.
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 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.

Why Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Occurs

Nursing home abuse and neglect may constitute criminal acts. A nursing home abuse lawyer can report what happened to the appropriate agencies. You and your loved one have the right to pursue damages when a nursing home fails to uphold its duty to protect a resident from harm.

There is no excuse for abusing the most vulnerable citizens.  Often times neglect may be caused by:

  • Inadequate training
  • Insufficient staff that leads to a high caregiver-to-resident ratio
  • Incomplete background checks
  • Negligent supervision of residents, leading to violence or abuse between residents
  • High employee turnover

Warning Signs: How to Recognize Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Abusive caregivers tend to gravitate toward victims who are socially isolated or who are physically or cognitively challenged. That is why our nursing home abuse attorneys want you to be aware of the warning signs of abuse, including:

  • Unexplained bruises, burns, or falls
  • Dirty, unkempt appearance and living space
  • Missing money or valuables
  • Appearing fearful or agitated when abuser is present
  • Withdrawing from favorite activities or refusing a telephone or in-person visit

If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, do not wait. It is better to be proactive than regret inaction if tragedy strikes.
