frequently asked questions

How do I know if I need a personal injury lawyer?

Determining if you need a personal injury lawyer depends on the circumstances of your case. If you've been injured due to someone else's negligence and are facing medical bills, lost wages, or other damages, consulting with a lawyer can help you understand your rights and options for pursuing compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide guidance tailored to your situation and advocate for your best interests throughout the legal process. We can also make sure you are compensated for your injuries to the full extent of the law.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury case?

In New Jersey and New York , the validity of a personal injury case hinges on several key factors. Firstly, it's essential to establish that another party's negligence or wrongful actions caused your injuries. This could include scenarios such as car accidents caused by a driver's recklessness or slip and fall incidents due to hazardous conditions on someone else's property. Secondly, you must demonstrate that you have suffered measurable damages as a result of the injury, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Lastly, it's crucial to gather sufficient evidence to support your claim, including medical records, accident reports, witness statements, and documentation of your financial losses. Consulting with an experienced lawyer can help you evaluate these factors and determine the strength of your case.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

The value of your personal injury case in New Jersey and New York depends on various factors, including the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. An experienced attorney can assess these factors to estimate the potential compensation you may receive.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim?

In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is generally two years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. This includes personal injury, premises liability, product liability, and medical malpractice claims. It's crucial to adhere to this deadline to preserve your right to seek compensation.

In New York the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is generally three years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. This includes personal injury, premises liability and product liability cases.

The above Statute of Limitations do not apply to all cases and there are other dates that have limitations. For instance, if suing a municipality or government agency there is a 90 day Notice of Claim requirement and the Statute of Limitations in New York is One Year and Ninety days. There are exceptions to the above Statute of Limitations. This is why it is important to consult with a lawyer after you have been injured.

How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?

The time it takes to resolve a personal injury case varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, the extent of injuries, and whether a settlement can be reached. Some cases may be resolved within months, while others may take years.

Will I have to go to court?

Most personal injury cases in New Jersey and New York are settled without a trial. This does not mean that the case will not be litigated in Court. It just means the case may settle before Trial. Most cases in NY and NJ settle before trial. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, your case may proceed to trial. Your attorney will advise you on the best course of action based on the specifics of your case.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay if we win your case. The attorney's fees are typically a percentage of the settlement or verdict, agreed upon in advance. We also cover all of the expenses associated with the case and get reimbursed only if we win your case. There is NO FEE unless we win your case!

Will I have direct access to my attorney throughout my case?

Yes, you will have direct access to your attorney throughout your case. Your attorney will keep you informed about the progress of your case, answer your questions, and address any concerns you may have.

How does your firm handle disputes with insurance companies?

Our firm handles disputes with insurance companies by conducting thorough investigations, gathering evidence, and advocating aggressively for our clients' rights. We negotiate from a position of strength to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients. If an insurance company will not agree to our terms we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit in Court and litigate the matter to conclusion if necessary

How will your firm keep me informed about developments in my case?

We will keep you informed about developments in your case through regular updates, phone calls, emails, or in-person meetings, depending on your preferences. Our goal is to ensure that you are kept well-informed and involved in the legal process every step of the way.
