We Will Gather Evidence and Build a Case to Support Your Claim
While we normally meet with our clients and potential clients on Long Island or in the New York metropolitan area, if you have returned home to a place that makes such a meeting inconvenient, we will discuss your case over the phone and be available to you via video-conference, email, telephone, texting, and other means.
We do have a multilingual staff and regularly assist clients in Spanish, Greek, Bengali, Tamil, and Kannada. If this would make your initial consultation easier or help you understand your rights better, just let us know.
When you choose our team to represent you, we will:
- Keep you updated on your case
- Identify liable parties
- Communicate with all parties for you
- Gather evidence
- Determine a value for your case
Once we have collected the relevant evidence and built a compelling case we will proceed with the claim, working to win the best possible settlement for you. The cases we build often encourage the insurance companies to offer the just settlements our injured clients are entitled to. If they deny your claim or refuse a just recovery, depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, we will file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
Call Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. today at (516) 932-0400 to learn more about how our attorneys will work with you on your Manhattan tourist accident case.
