When to Call a Personal Injury Lawyer on Long Island

You’re Involved in an Accident

After being in a Long Island car accident or slip-and-fall, injured by a defective product or dog bite, or getting injured in another accident, speak with a personal injury lawyer for help considering your legal options.

You’ve Suffered Catastrophic Injuries

Some people walk away from accidents unscathed. But when your accident has resulted in devastating injuries, it may be in your best interests to move forward with a Long Island personal injury claim.

Someone Else Is At Fault

Should you be stuck dealing with the consequences of an accident you didn’t cause? No.

When another individual or entity is responsible for causing your injuries, they can be held accountable in civil court.

Your Life Is Negatively Impacted

You may be experiencing financial hardship, psychological trauma, or debilitating injuries that could last a lifetime. You’re entitled to justice, and the liable party should cover all your financial and nonfinancial losses.

You Don’t Know What to Do Next

If you’re confused about whether you have a case or what your next steps should be, your best bet is to reach out and speak with a personal injury lawyer for some clarity.

You need legal representation you can count on during this difficult time in your life.

Personal Injury FAQ

After you have suffered a serious injury in Suffolk or Nassau County, the last thing you want to do is spend your energy trying to find answers, even if your questions are pressing.

With this in mind, we have included a brief FAQ that includes some of the more common questions injury victims like you have had regarding their claims. If your question hasn’t been answered here, please contact our office to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation so we can further discuss the details of your case.

How long do I have to file my personal injury claim?

It depends on the circumstances of the injury and who was at fault. Deadlines can be as soon as thirty days from the date of the accident, so it is imperative you contact a Long Island injury attorney immediately.

Can I file a claim if my child is injured?

Yes, you can file for an injured child. Children who suffer at the hands of another have just as much right to be made whole after an accident as an adult. You’ll advocate for them and file the claim on their behalf so they can get the compensation they deserve.

What happens if I’m partially responsible for the accident?

Sharing fault doesn’t mean you are unable to be awarded compensation for your suffering. It does mean that your award will be reduced by your portion of fault under New York’s comparative negligence laws. If you are, say, ten percent liable, your settlement will be reduced by ten percent.

How does the personal injury claims process work?

Every claim is different, but you’ll start out by meeting your Long Island injury lawyer during a free consultation. Then, we’ll investigate, gather evidence, and file an insurance claim. From there, it may be appropriate to head to court. Discuss what your claims process might look like with your lawyer.

What is my claim worth?

That depends on the ways your life has been impacted by both the accident and your injuries. Your personal injury lawyer on Long Island will need to take every single loss into consideration, including financial losses, emotional trauma, and physical injuries you’ve endured, in order to maximize your injury settlement.
