Surviving family members can launch a wrongful death case in the event of a death in the family. In wrongful death cases, victims should not do it alone. It is critical to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Insurance companies are businesses, and as such, they are not looking out for your best interests. The insurance company collects as many premiums as possible while only paying out a small number of claims. Insurance companies employ a team of experts, lawyers, paralegals, claim adjusters, and other professionals who are trained to decrease or deny your claim. Our New York City personal injury lawyers have successfully settled numerous personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims by working with—and against—insurance companies.  Personal injury victims almost always benefit from hiring an attorney.

Common Questions About Personal Injury Lawsuits

What is the value of my personal injury case in New York City?

The worth of a case is determined by several things. Although it appears to be a simple question, it is, as you are likely aware, incredibly complicated. You should probably avoid any lawyer who tells you how much your case is worth during your first conversation. Such a personal injury lawyer could not possibly have taken into account all of the circumstances that can significantly alter the value of a claim. Of course, the two most important considerations are who is to blame for the accident and the extent of the damage. The amount of insurance held by the defendant is also significant.

In personal injury cases, a settlement will be made if you and the insurance company can agree on the value of the case. If you and the insurance company can’t come to an agreement, one of our personal injury lawyers in New York can bring your case to a jury and court to evaluate the value. Your medical bills, length of treatment, frequency of treatment, whether or not there is any permanent disability, whether or not you will need any future treatment, and whether or not you will have any future medical bills will all be considered by the insurance companies when evaluating your claim.

Every aspect must be examined for you to receive the compensation you deserve.  Your loss of wages claim will also be carefully evaluated by insurance companies. Were you working at the time of the incident? Did you miss a lot of time at work? Is it possible for you to return to work? Are you well-educated, or did you drop out before completing your studies? You are more likely to find work involving hard manual labor and accidents if you have less schooling. Following an accident, a serious injury will make it more difficult to obtain similar work, increasing your lost wage

Finally, the value of a case is typically related to how much you trust your lawyer. The majority of personal injury lawsuits are settled. Some cases end up in court. You must have confidence in your personal injury attorney’s ability to win the best settlement or result from a judge or jury; otherwise, you may never feel as if you have received the full value of your case.

Why shouldn’t I do it alone and negotiate with the insurance companies?

Victims should not be on their own. It is critical to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies are businesses, and as such, they are not looking out for your best interests. As a business, the insurance firm collects as many premiums as possible while paying out as few claims as possible.

Personal injury victims almost always benefit from hiring an attorney. Clients should have someone on their side who has handled personal injury cases before.

Questions to Ask Your Personal Injury Lawyer

How Long Will My New York Personal Injury Case Take to Resolve?

Many factors influence whether a case can be resolved in a couple of months or if it will take years to resolve. The length of medical treatment and the client’s decision to settle or risk a bigger recovery at trial determines the length of a personal injury case. The length of therapy is significant because a case should not be settled until the patient has gotten the most out of post-accident treatment and has a long-term prognosis for the damage. A doctor must be able to determine the severity of the injury’s long-term effects. The patient is entitled to money for damages and medical expenditures for treatment that he or she may need in the future as long as a doctor can express the patient’s needs with a fair degree of medical certainty. If you settle personal injury litigation before a doctor can evaluate which injuries are permanent, you may be giving up a lot of money that you will need in the future. A case that has been settled cannot be reopened.

It is always up to the client whether or not a case handled by our New York City personal injury lawyers settles. Any offer made on a client’s case is always presented to the client for acceptance or rejection. We advise the client on whether the offer is reasonable, insufficient, or excessive. We constantly try to get more money for our clients than the matter is worth. A greater settlement puts more money in our clients’ pockets because we work on a contingency fee, which is a typical proportion of the final settlement. We believe that a swift settlement benefits both us and our clients, thus we aim to reach good agreements as quickly as possible.

Despite our arguments, legal motions, correspondence, investigations, and court appearances, the insurance carrier does not always offer an acceptable settlement sum. When this happens, our personal injury lawyers are ready to go to trial. It is always the client’s choice whether to proceed to trial or accept any deal made. We are with our clients every step of the process to ensure that they make the best option possible.

Naturally, the longer a matter is in litigation, the longer we have to deal with the court backlog, and the longer a case will take. Cases that settle without going to court normally take six to a year and a half. A litigation case can span anywhere from two to five years. Larger cases take longer to complete. Insurance companies are rarely willing to give up millions of dollars without a struggle. Also, unlike us, insurance companies can earn interest on the money they have on hand throughout the fight, so it is in their best interests to cause a delay. We make every effort to avoid such delays. Usually, we are successful in getting our clients the money they deserve and require promptly.

What is the deadline to file the case?

Time is of importance in a personal injury case. In civil law, the term “statute of limitations” refers to the amount of time a person has after an accident to initiate a case. A personal injury claim in New York normally has a three-year statute of limitations. However, exact times vary depending on the type of claim.

The Process of Filing a Lawsuit for Personal Injury

Unfortunately, recovering from a serious personal injury does not make the situation any easier. It could take weeks or even months to feel normal again, depending on the sort of injury. In many circumstances, it takes much longer. You may never be able to return to your prior lifestyle, let alone work if you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, or another disabling ailment.

The expense of healthcare in the United States is increasing. Following an accident, a victim may be faced with a large medical bill from his provider and wish to make an insurance claim. However, there are additional processes that must be completed before you can expect to get your money. First, the attorney will assist you in determining if your lawsuit is worth pursuing. Many pieces of prospective evidence will be examined, including:

  • The expense of the medical treatment you received as a result of your injury.
  • Your insurance policy’s protection
  • Any accident-related police reports that are available
  • According to eyewitness accounts

We’ll decide whether or not we can fairly anticipate collecting your money after we’ve evaluated this material and listened to your story of what happened. After that, your lawyer can begin preparing the basic papers. We acquire police documents, medical reports, witness statements, and any other piece of evidence that will support your position once your complaint has been submitted and your case has been started.

Your issue will either be resolved outside of court through a settlement or will be tried in court. While accepting a settlement offer is a faster process, it may result in a lower reward than you would receive if you won your case at trial. If you and your lawyer elect to fight your case in front of a jury, you and your lawyer will be taking on more risk, and your lawyer will be responsible for presenting a compelling enough argument for the jury to return a favorable result. It’s time to celebrate when the jury has ruled in your favor.

You’ve just won your personal injury case, and you’ll be getting the monetary recompense you deserve.
