Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

What Happens if the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured we can file an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle’s insurance policy.  Automobile insurance policies written for New York State motorists are required to have uninsured protection.  This insurance will provide financial compensation to you, if the at fault driver does not have insurance. If you must file through your own insurer, you need a skilled law firm to help you recover the maximum money damages available.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Damages Are Available if I’m Injured in a Car Crash?
Damages are recoverable for past and future pain and suffering, economic loss, such as lost wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation, therapy, and long-term residential care will also be considered damages under the law.  Union members may recover lost future benefits.  Other damages are recoverable and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
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.

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.

When you Trust Oresky & Associates with Your Case, You Are in Good Hands

You need a New York City truck injury law firm that understands what’s at stake for you and your loved ones, one that will fight to make sure you are properly compensated for all your injuries and medical costs, pain and suffering, and other damages and losses. You want a Bronx, Queens, or Brooklyn truck wreck lawyer who has the experience and resources to figure out who or what caused your crash and knows how to prove it.
