Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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 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 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 are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.
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.
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.
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.

A nursing home abuse attorney will build a case to prove liability. We know how to investigate nursing home abuse cases with a careful process that includes:

  • Reviewing medical records, test results and reports to understand the full extent of the injury
  • Requesting information on the facility and caregivers, including training, background checks, and previous violations

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.
