How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?
After you are involved in an accident due to negligence, there are many steps to take in order to receive full financial compensation. Insurance companies will do anything possible to reduce your payout, and our New York injury attorneys have the experience that you need to fight for fair compensation. Our injury attorneys will help you prove the following:
- The person responsible for your injury is called the "negligent party." Proving that this negligent party owed you a "duty of care" is the first step in obtaining fair compensation
- The negligent party did not adhere to this duty of care by acting negligently in the time leading up to your accident
- The negligent party's actions were a direct and proximate cause of your personal injury
- The insurance company that represents the negligent party is ultimately responsible for your pain and injuries
