Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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.
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.
I Have Insurance, and I Have the Other Driver’s Insurance Information. Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Unfortunately, people are not always honest, and you need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you gather evidence that you cannot get on your own. Of course, you need the accident report, but you also may need witness statements, certified weather reports,  photos from the accident scene,  driver statements,  and other evidence to establish liability.
Why do I need a car accident lawyer; can’t I just call the insurance company myself and try to get a settlement?
Insurance companies have skilled attorneys working to protect them as well as adjusters whose job it is to resolve claims for as little money as possible. Car accident victims representing themselves will usually be at a significant disadvantage. You should have skilled personal injury attorneys at your side, like those at Oresky & Associates, fighting for your rights, with a proven track record of obtaining over $300 Million Dollars in verdicts and settlements for New York accident victims. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New York car accident attorney.
Can I Get Compensated if I Was Partly at Fault for My Car Accident?
The short answer is yes - many times, you can be compensated if you are partly at fault. Again, New York is a no-fault insurance state in which your own insurance pays for your out-of-pocket costs such as limited lost wages and medical bills up to $50,000.  When you make a claim for pain and suffering as well as certain economic loss above no-fault, the percentages of fault will be considered in your recovery. Your injury from your car accident may have a certain value, however, fault will be taken into consideration at the time of trial or settlement.
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 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.

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.
