If you were injured in an accident that was caused by another driver, you may be struggling mightily to keep it all together while you recover from your injuries.
It can be quite challenging to meet your day-to-day responsibilities to work and family when you are suffering and still healing. That’s why it is a good idea to retain a personal injury attorney to file your claim for you and get the ball rolling on a settlement.
If your family depends on your income for survival and your injuries prevent you from working, that’s going to affect their quality of life. In some cases where you may no longer be able to carry out your marital duties, your spouse might have a legitimate claim for loss of consortium.
Few non-lawyers would know to add such a claim to their own, which is another reason why we urge New York City residents who suffer injuries in accidents to retain us. We seek the maximum value for our clients’ claims and are not afraid to battle it out in court if that is necessary.
But 90% of all personal injury claims wind up settled without our clients ever having to step foot into a courtroom. We are always willing to negotiate with insurance companies in order to get our clients a fair and equitable settlement that is commensurate with the severity and duration of their injuries.
It is very important to act quickly after an accident and get your claim filed. As your attorney, I can obtain witness statements, police reports and other data that could be pivotal in settling your personal injuy case.
