Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in New York?

Many people wonder whether they even need a personal injury attorney after an accident. While you do not necessarily need to file a claim through a lawyer, having an attorney represent you during the claims process can actually make a huge difference between a large settlement and a denied claim. You only have one chance to file a claim, so it is important that you make it count and that you walk away with the compensation you need.

Here's what our experienced personal injury attorneys can do for your case:

  • File claims for you, including paperwork. Our attorneys deal with claims every single day. We know how to assess them, prepare the documents, and file all the paperwork. Every single detail will be handled by us to ensure the best possible results.
  • Decipher complicated technical language. The language used in insurance policies and by adjustors can be confusing and technical for those without the proper legal or medical training. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and explain all the terms in simple language.
  • Investigate. Your attorney will usually work closely with a whole suite of experts and investigators, including accident reconstruction specialists, medical specialists, and any other expert necessary to provide objective, insightful testimony for your case.
  • Negotiate with adjustors. Many injury claims are resolved through negotiations. But clients who are not represented by an attorney often have difficulty getting a fair amount from adjustors. When insurance companies know a client is represented by an attorney, they are more likely to play fair because they know that attorneys are always willing to take a case to trial if necessary.
  • Resolve disputes. Our attorneys are trained to resolve disputes in a cost-effective manner. Whether you need mediation, arbitration, or another type of resolution method, we can skillfully assess the situation and offer you our trusted advice.
  • Litigate on your behalf. In the event a claim cannot be resolved outside of court, our attorneys are always prepared to take a case to trial. We are high-powered litigators who have extensive experience trying and winning cases in court.
