About Our Firm

What We Can Do for You
After an accident, you may not think you need an attorney right away. If the damage is minor and you don’t seem to be hurt, you may wonder if you should bother hiring a lawyer. However, there are reasons you should consider consulting an attorney right away, such as:
- Injuries take time to develop — If you suffered a neck or back injury, closed head trauma (such as a concussion), or other soft-tissue injuries, it could take a long time to realize you’re hurt. A delay in treatment can look bad in future legal action.
- Statutes of limitation — You have three years to file a personal injury claim in New York unless you need to sue a government agency like the MTA. Then you only have 90 days to file a “notice of intent.” After that, you are barred from any recovery.
- Lowball settlements and sneaky tricks — Insurance companies want to settle with you for the lowest possible amount. Even your own insurer will try for a settlement much lower than you probably deserve. The other party’s insurer or attorney may also try to get you to admit fault even if you aren’t to blame. It’s easy to make an admission by mistake. Having an attorney to field phone calls and review offer letters can save you from many errors.
You are entitled to economic and non-economic damages if you are injured due to another person’s negligence. Our job is to get you the compensation you deserve after your accident. These damages may include:
- Economic or “special” damages — These damages reimburse you for actual costs. Medical bills, lost wages or other income, future earnings, in-home care, medical equipment or devices, even childcare or transportation to and from the doctor’s office are examples of economic damages.
- Non-economic or “general” damages — These are damages that cover things that do not have a monetary value but are impacted by your injury and affect your quality of life. Pain and suffering, emotional distress, long-term disability, lost opportunity, and loss of consortium are examples of non-economic damages.
- Punitive damages — The court can award these damages in cases where the offender’s behavior was especially egregious or the judge feels additional punishment is justified. You can ask for punitive damages, but the court must award them. Courts are reluctant to give them except in certain cases.
