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.
Can I Sue For A Work-Related Injury?
You can sue for a work-related injury under certain conditions. Typically, employers in New York have immunity from personal injury lawsuits, but there are exceptions. There may be other liable parties (other than your employer) who do not have this immunity. You can read our full blog post here to find out more.
What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
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.
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. 
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.
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.

You Need a NYC Truck Crash Law Firm That Will Work Hard for You

Because of the size and weight of trucks, accident victims are likely to sustain serious injuries upon impact in a collision. Fractures, Surgery, Traumatic Brain Injury, and even death could result from an accident with a truck.

Our Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn truck crash lawyers know the ramifications from getting seriously hurt in a truck accident may go further than your physical injuries and the damage to your vehicle, including bills for surgeries, rehabilitative therapy, long-term care; lost wages for the time you are forced to take off work, which could affect your ability to pay your living expenses and support your family; and the resulting mental toll and emotional distress. For those whose loved one has died in a New York truck accident, there may be funeral expenses, loss of services and support.

Attorney Oresky and his team are here to alleviate some of that worry, pressure and stress as we work hard to obtain the best outcome in your truck injury case.

Do NOT Settle Until You Talk to Our NY Injury Law Firm First

Trucking companies have been known to approach victims and their families immediately after a collision in order to get them to agree to a financial settlement. They do this because once you sign on the dotted line and agree to the terms of their offer, your case is permanently closed.
