If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone’s wrongful conduct, you need a personal injury attorney. An experienced attorney will ensure that your rights are protected and advocate for your financial recovery. Our law firm handles every type of personal injury claim, including car accidents, construction accidents, wrongful death claims, brain injuries, medical malpractice, and premises liability. Contact a Long Island personal injury lawyer at Sullivan, Papain, Block, McGrath & Cannavo P.C. for a free consultation to discuss your injuries and potential compensation.
Insurance companies may contact you after your accident to discuss your version of events and the extent of your injuries. In our representation, we will handle all discussions and negotiations with insurance companies. Their goal is to minimize the value of your claim, but our experienced attorneys will protect you and your claim value. Our attorneys are professional but aggressive, and they will never encourage you to settle your claim for an amount that does not fairly compensate you.
In order to prove your claim, we will conduct an investigation to gather facts and supporting evidence. We will interview witnesses, and we will be with you when defense attorneys interview you. We have many contacts with experts who may be needed for consultation and to offer testimony in your case. Medical experts may be needed to review your medical records, conduct an independent medical exam, and testify about your injuries. Experts are sometimes necessary for accident reconstruction to help prove accident facts and causation.
In placing a value on your personal injury claim, we will explore all of your injuries and damages, including future losses as well. Compensation may be available for medical bills and future medical care. If your injuries caused you to miss work, you might be entitled to receive compensation for lost wages. If your injuries result in a long-term or permanent disability that reduces your earning capacity, you might be entitled to recover for lost future earnings as well. Additional compensation may be available for property damage and your pain and suffering. Properly valuing your claim is critical in making sure that any settlement you accept will fully cover you for your losses.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s fault, you need legal representation to help with your financial recovery. Contact Sullivan, Papain, Block, McGrath & Cannavo P.C. to speak with a member of our personal injury team. We take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis so that attorneys’ fees are not collected until you have received compensation for your claim.
