New York City Personal Injury Lawyers

Will my personal injury claim settle or be a lawsuit?

While no one can know for sure whether any particular claim will settle or require litigation in court, more than 80 percent of personal injury claims settle. A lawsuit may be necessary in cases where an insurance company disputes some aspects of the claim. Even if a lawsuit is filed, it is very likely that the claim will settle before a full trial. Our attorneys are experienced litigators and negotiators. We work hard to make sure you get full value for your claim, whether in court or at the negotiating table.

I was hurt in an accident and the other side told me to go see their doctor….

…. I would rather be treated by my own doctor. Can I do this?

Yes. Accident victims have the right to choose their own doctor. Don’t let the other side or an insurance company pressure you to see their doctor. Choose the doctor you think is best for you.

How soon do I need to see a doctor?

The sooner the better. If you are in an accident and think you are hurt, it is best to go by ambulance to a hospital. It is important to see a doctor promptly after an accident so that your injuries can be documented and treated promptly. Some injuries take time to develop, and a doctor can help keep minor injuries from getting worse. A doctor can also help determine the extent of your injuries when time comes to make a claim.

There were no witnesses or police at the scene of my accident. How can I prove what happened?

Accident victims can recover compensation even if there are no witnesses or police report. Investigators have a wide range of tools they can use to reconstruct the accident to help show what really happened.
