We Nant to Help You Fight for Compensation for Your Injuries and Damages
Insurance companies typically try to settle cases as inexpensively as possible. As such, they may try to pressure you into accepting a claim that does not cover your losses. Our legal team can step in to protect your case and negotiate a settlement that is fair to you.
A car accident lawyer from our team will always advocate for your legal interests. This includes advising you of when it might be necessary to file a lawsuit through the court system with jurisdiction over your Floral Park-related accident if negotiating an insurance settlement is not viable.
Damages You Should Consider Claiming When Pursuing Compensation
When pursuing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you want to be aware of the types of damages that may entitle you to receive compensation. While many people think of recovering the costs of their medical expenses, there are various damages that can be claimed when making a demand for compensation.
Depending on your injuries, we will seek damages for losses such as:
- Medical care
- Lost wages and benefits
- Property damage, such as costs to repair or replace your vehicle or personal items
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
This is not a complete list of compensable damages. You could qualify to claim other damages related to physical and emotional losses you suffered or other financial expenses you can tie to the collision, such as, for one example, home modifications you needed to make because of your injuries.
Our legal team will discuss your damages in full before commencing settlement negotiations with the insurance carriers for the liable parties in your case.
We Represent Car Accident Victims with Catastrophic Injuries
If you or a family member suffered catastrophic injuries, you could be entitled to additional compensation. Our team will take into consideration current and expected damages, such as:
- Lifecare costs
- Ongoing medical or chronic care
- Diminished quality of life
- Future loss of income, benefits, and annuities
- Loss of consortium or companionship
- Permanent disability, including vision or hearing loss
- Disfigurement, such as scarring
At Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., our team takes care of all the details, from gathering evidence that establishes the opposing party’s liability to filing a detailed claim against the insurance company. Our attention to detail allows you to take care of yourself, medically and emotionally, and hopefully feel better as soon as possible.

We Will Help You Prove Who Holds Liability and May Owe You Compensation
Car accidents usually occur due to negligence. Often, either the other driver did not take proper action or took the “wrong” action. In both of these instances, the at-fault driver may be held accountable for your losses.
Proving liability is key to getting you the compensation you deserve for damages. A car accident lawyer with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., will consider these factors of liability:
- Whether the other driver had a duty of care to avoid the accident
- Whether the driver breached their duty of care for some reason, such as by speeding or driving recklessly
- Whether this breach caused you to suffer physical and emotional injuries, leading to financial damages
We will help You Collect Evidence to Support Your Argument
Our legal team will secure any available evidence to establish how the other party should be held liable for the car accident and your damages. This evidence may include:
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Photos of the accident, debris, and damaged vehicles
- Red light or other closed-circuit videos if available
- Your statement
- Description and photos of your injuries
