No two cases are exactly alike. The chances for the amount of recovery typically depend on who is at fault, severity, medical costs, income and future earnings lost, and the effects on the victim and their family. If you or a loved one has been injured, please call 1-212-465-1110 or submit a request.

Submit A Request

It is wise to keep or obtain copies of any documents relevant to the accident or injury. Also, try to acquire any and all prescriptions, and bills for medical attention received. As a rule, we suggest that our clients not discuss the accident or injuries with anyone other than our team of attorneys and professionals.

It’s important to seek the help of an accident lawyer as soon as possible. Otherwise, a time limit, called a statute of limitations, may prevent you from suing those responsible for the injury or limit the recovery. A personal injury attorney can best determine whether there remains time to file your lawsuit.
