We make Legal Representation Accessible
At Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., we never want injury victims to feel like they can’t afford to seek compensation or that hiring a lawyer is too difficult. To make sure that this is never the case when you work with our firm, we:
- Employ a multilingual staff: We understand that our clients come from different backgrounds, and we hire employees to meet those needs. When you call for your complimentary case review, you can request to speak with a team member in your preferred language, whether it is Spanish, Kannada, Greek, Bengali, or Tamil.
- Meet where it’s most convenient for you: If you can’t come to our office to meet, not to worry—our team will come to you in Suffolk County or elsewhere on Long Island or in metropolitan New York.
- Work on contingency: Not only is the initial consultation free, but you also owe us nothing if we can’t deliver a win in your case. Our fee is based on the success of your claim or lawsuit and comes from a percentage of your winnings, which we will iron out before you become our client. You will never see upfront or out-of-pocket fees.
We hope that taking these and other steps continues to help victims of negligence feel empowered to seek compensation.

Your Right to File Won’t Last Forever
A crucial factor in any case is the statute of limitations, which outlines the last day victims have to file a lawsuit. New York enforces different deadlines based on case type, and each may have its own exceptions to consider.
For example, the filing window for personal injury lawsuits generally begins on the day of the accident—when the injuries occurred, according to New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214. Meanwhile, cases involving medical malpractice have their own timeline under New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214-A. When this window begins can vary depending on several factors.
One of our main goals when we represent you is to identify the correct filing deadline and make sure your right to file does not expire. This is true even if we plan to negotiate an appropriate settlement, because we will protect your rights by making sure a lawsuit is timely filed. If a suit is not timely filed, the responsible party will not make a settlement offer as they know they can never be compelled to pay for the harm they’ve caused.

Your Injuries Could Qualify You for Various Damages
A civil case could allow you to hold the liable party financially accountable for your damages. The term “damages” refers to physical injuries, bills, financial losses, and even intangible harm, like pain and suffering. Examples include:
- Hospital bills for emergency department treatment, scans and tests, medications, and surgeries
- Medical bills for follow-ups with doctors and specialists regarding physical therapy or ongoing treatment
- Unearned wages for the time you couldn’t work (future missed earnings and reduced earning capacity are recoverable as well in some cases)
- Any long-lasting physical effects of your injuries, such as scarring or disability
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain, and other factors that can affect your quality of life
As we review your case, our team will take note of potentially recoverable damages so we will account for them. For some, this is as simple as adding up your expenses. Others will require us to perform further in-depth investigation as the details of these damages along with additional calculations before we outline your total case value.
