Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
