Unfortunately, accidents happen. You might be entitled to compensation if you were injured in any accident caused by someone else’s negligence. The Brooklyn Heights personal injury attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP recognize that you experience a financial and emotional burden after a severe injury.
You doubtless have questions about insurance claims, negotiations, and personal injury lawsuits. You may have to take these steps to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses caused by the accident. Many people find going through this process can be intimidating.
Added to this is the time limit to file a lawsuit and recover damages in court. The statute of limitations governs this, and in New York, you have three years from the accident date. Don’t wait to contact an attorney because gathering the information and evidence to document and prove your injuries can take time.
Don’t let an unexpected accident or injury destroy the plans you have for your future. Call Hach & Rose, LLP today at (212) 779-0057 or contact us online to schedule your free consultation. We will review your case during your appointment and advise you on your next best steps.
Why Choose Hach & Rose, LLP to Represent You?
After an accident, it can be challenging to choose the right attorney. Oftentimes, your life has been turned upside down, and you may also be dealing with extensive physical injuries. Like other professionals, attorneys have varying experience, ability, and success levels.
Your selection has an impact on the outcome of your case. After an accident, the at-fault party’s insurance company may send an insurance adjuster to talk to you within days. They may convince you that you can negotiate with the insurance company independently.
Insurance adjusters sometimes represent themselves as friends of the victim. However, you should know that these professionals are skilled negotiators who aim to represent the insurance company’s financial interest, not you.
When the insurance company knows you have limited resources and knowledge of the law, they may deliberately delay settling your claim. They may also offer you an early settlement much lower than one they would make if an experienced attorney represented you.
The attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP are experienced negotiators and skilled litigators. We can negotiate with the insurance company to avoid litigation. However, we are also prepared to fight your case in court if this is unsuccessful. Take the first step and contact us to discuss your case.
