New York Neck Injury Lawyer
Our necks have muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves that allow us to function in our daily lives. When you suffer a neck injury caused by someone’s careless or negligent behavior, your life is disrupted. Neck injuries and disorders prevent you from working, exercising, and even sleeping and may be the source of constant, terrible pain. Neck injuries can dramatically diminish the quality of life.
As passionate advocates for the injured, a neck injury lawyer in New York with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will help you seek compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial damages. You could recover compensation for doctor’s bills, lost pay, and other losses.
It takes time to investigate and build the strongest possible insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. New York statute § 214 limits the time you have to take legal action. Additionally, it is best to gather evidence, such as witness statements or video surveillance recordings, if available, as soon after the accident as possible. For these reasons, please do not delay in contacting our office to analyze your accident and offer our experienced advice at no charge.

A Neck Injury Lawyer Will Collect the Necessary Evidence for Liability
There are often conflicting versions of events after an accident or an injury. In most cases, the liable party is reluctant to admit wrongdoing or responsibility for your injuries and expenses.
That is why having a lawyer who has the resources to investigate the cause of your injuries is valuable to you as a plaintiff. Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will look for evidence that shows how the defendant’s actions (or omissions) caused your injury.
Collecting Evidence to Show Negligence
It is important that your lawyer communicates with your medical provider to understand how your injuries could prevent you from working or other daily activities. We want to accurately estimate your losses and seek compensation.
In addition, a neck injury lawyer will seek evidence from:
- Police reports
- Accident or incident reports from an employer, business, or agency
- Other witnesses’ statements
- Photos or videos
- Physical evidence
Of course, your neck injury lawyer in NY will want to get an account from you as soon as you are able. You should include what you saw, heard, felt, or experienced right before, during, and after the accident or injury happened.
As mentioned above, evidence can be lost, misplaced or become otherwise unavailable, so it is important to start on your case right away. In some cases, an at-fault party may have evidence, such as video surveillance footage, that they refuse to disclose. If we put them on notice for such footage and they don’t produce it, such a bad faith position on their part can be helpful to demonstrate their careless attitude. For a free case review to see if you are entitled to compensation, call Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. today: (516) 932-0400.
