When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Area in Albany, New YorkThe human body is a fragile organism, and there are thousands of ways to suffer an injury. In some cases, an accident will “just happen” with nobody to blame. In other cases, the accident can be traced to carelessness or even an intentional act.

When you are injured through the fault of another, personal injury law is designed to provide you with full financial compensation.

The stark reality, however, is that merely having a personal injury claim under doesn’t guarantee that you will be able to actually collect it.

Winning a personal injury claim – either in court or (more commonly) at the settlement table – is a tricky process that requires experience, legal knowledge, street smarts, and a thorough understanding of human psychology.

  • Negotiate with Insurance Companies: Once liability is established after a thorough investigation of the legal merits of your case, personal injury lawyers can negotiate with insurance companies on behalf of their client to secure fair compensation for damages incurred as a result of the accident.
  • Represent Clients in Court: In some cases resolution through negotiation may not be possible and personal injury attorney’s skills become even more valuable by representing clients in court should litigation become necessary.

Let Our NY Law Firm Handle Your Claim for You

The recovery period following a personal injury is a difficult time to be handling a claim, especially against a stingy insurance company or a stubborn defendant. Insurance companies, in particular, will try to take advantage of you financially, by playing on your physical weakness and emotional vulnerability to get you to accept a settlement that is worth far less than what you deserve.

Let us do the negotiating for you, while you make the important decisions. Our aim is to keep the experience as stress-free as possible for you.
