Why You Need an Experienced Attorney

After a serious personal injury accident in New York, it can be difficult to tell who is on your side. You may be facing expensive medical bills and calls from insurance adjusters or bill collectors. Insurance companies may offer settlements, but the amounts could be far less than the true value of your claim. Do not let someone take advantage of you during a difficult time. Hire a lawyer to protect your rights. Insurance companies often try to save money with unsavory practices, such as:

  • Denying valid claims
  • Unreasonably delaying the claims process
  • Offering lowball settlements
  • Saying it is the final settlement offer
  • Convincing claimants to accept a low settlement
  • Using a client’s recorded statements against him/her

Hiring an experienced New York City personal injury attorney can help you defend yourself from insurance company tactics and give you the ability to fight for fair compensation. A lawyer can give you peace of mind by handling complex legal processes while you focus on healing. Our personal injury lawyers will take care of the legwork of your case, taking over negotiations with insurance companies on your behalf. Our NYC personal injury lawyers can also take your injury case to court if necessary for maximum financial recovery.
