Handle negotiations with the insurance company.

Negotiating with insurance companies can be difficult. An experienced personal injury lawyer knows the techniques and tactics they use and can help you through the process. Having a lawyer almost always leads to greater compensation than if you were to handle the claim alone.
Evidence is essential in supporting your claim. The Queens personal injury attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP will help gather the evidence you need for a successful claim. Common types of evidence include pictures and video of the accident scene, police reports, witness statements, and medical records.

Litigate your lawsuit.
A major benefit of retaining a personal injury lawyer is that they will act as your legal representative in court. If a settlement cannot be reached, they won’t hesitate to take your case to trial and litigate for you with your best interests at heart.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
At Hach & Rose, LLP, our Queens personal injury attorneys receive many questions from clients regarding their cases. We have compiled a few of the most commonly asked questions. If you have questions about your personal injury claim, please reach out to our knowledgeable Queens personal injury attorneys by calling (212) 779-0057.
Can I file by myself?
You can usually settle minor personal injury claims without the help of a lawyer. However, if you sustained serious injuries or your case becomes complicated, as many personal injury claims do, there is too much at stake for you to not retain the services of a personal injury lawyer. With the help of a lawyer, you won’t have to face insurance companies and the at-fault party’s lawyers alone. Because personal injury attorneys offer free consultations and will represent you on a contingency-fee-basis, you have nothing to lose by speaking with a lawyer about your legal options.
How long do I have to file?
New York has a strict statute of limitations, which is the period of time in which a lawsuit can be filed. For personal injuries, the deadline is three years from the date of injury.
How long will my case take?
How long it takes to resolve your case will hinge on a range of factors. No two injury cases are exactly alike, so it’s hard to know exactly how long your case will take. If you are able to secure a fair settlement from the insurance company, your case might be finished in just a few short months. However, if your case goes to trial, it could take several years. Discussing your injury claim with the experienced Queens personal injury lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP will give you an idea of how long your personal injury case is projected to take.
What types of compensation am I able to recover?
The kinds of compensation you are entitled to will depend on the facts of your case, including the seriousness of your injuries and whether you were partially at fault for the accident. Common types of compensation in personal injury lawsuits include:
- Medical bills. You can be reimbursed for your doctor’s bills, hospital bills, medications, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and all other treatments you need as a result of your injuries.
- Lost wages. You can recover the wages you lose due to missing work while recovering from your injuries. In addition to your missed paychecks, you may be compensated for any bonuses, commissions, and benefits you lost.
- Pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is more difficult to calculate because it is not based on easily quantifiable out-of-pocket expenses. An attorney will be able to determine the value of your pain and suffering based on their experience handling similar cases.
- Loss of consortium. Your spouse may be entitled to compensation for the loss of companionship.
- Wrongful death. When someone dies from an accident, their dependents can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation can include funeral expenses, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of companionship, and more.
