I was hurt in an accident in New York. How do I know if I need an attorney?

If you have sustained any type of New York or New Jersey injury, you may be asking yourself, "Do I need a lawyer for my accident?"

The answer depends upon the severity as well as the type of accident. A simple car crash where no occupants were injured can usually be handled through your insurer. However, if you were injured by a defective drug or product or have a loved one who was neglected, assaulted or abused, you should seek the help of a New York injury lawyer.


Simply put, the more serious or complicated your accident is, the more likely it is that you will need a lawyer.


How can a skilled accident lawyer help you after a serious accident?

  1. Thoroughly investigate your case and uncover important facts that will help you get the compensation you need to recover.

  2. Hold the negligent parties accountable for their actions.

  3. Stand up for your rights against insurance companies that may deny your claim, delay your claim, or offer you less than you deserve.

  4. Fight for you to receive fair compensation for your medical bills, pain & suffering, lost wages, future lost income, and more.

  5. Help you determine what "fair compensation" really is, considering the impact the accident may have on your future.

  6. Work for a favorable settlement on your behalf, or take your case to court if necessary.
