Floral Park Personal Injury Lawyer
If you were injured by someone’s careless, negligent, or reckless actions, you might be entitled to compensation for damages such as medical treatment, lost pay, pain and suffering, and other losses.
We invite you to call a Floral Park personal injury lawyer from Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. for a free consultation and case review. You deserve to know your legal rights, including the potential for financial recovery.
NY § 214 imposes a statute of limitations on filing a personal injury lawsuit. That is just one of a number of important reasons why you should find out now if you are entitled to compensation. In addition to the statute of limitations, claims and lawsuits are governed by other deadlines for action. Along with considerations of the statute of limitations and other case deadlines, it is important to keep in mind that the sooner you contact us, the greater our opportunity to build the strongest case possible on your behalf.
We are happy to meet you at your home, or the hospital on Long Island, or the New York metropolitan area. Call (516) 932-0400 for a free consultation.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You
A personal injury is exactly that: it is any bodily harm to your physical or emotional well-being through an intentional or negligent act. In a personal injury case, the at-fault person is called the defendant, and the injured party is the plaintiff.
Personal injury cases can be complex, and certain conditions must be met to recover damages. These conditions are:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care requiring that reasonable measures be taken to avoid harming you.
- The defendant did not uphold this duty of care, and you were injured as a result.
If the conditions above are me, the defendant may be held accountable for your physical, emotional, and financial suffering.
In most personal injury cases, a lawyer with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will seek compensation from the at-fault person’s insurance company. The type of insurance will depend on the type of personal injury, such as:
- Property or homeowners
- Personal injury or liability
- Medical malpractice
Most Personal Injury Cases Are Resolved Outside a Courtroom
One of the first questions that a new client asks is whether their case will have to go to trial. Since 1991, Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. has successfully resolved many personal injury cases. While many of these cases have resolved through insurance settlements, we can and will take your case before a judge or jury in certain circumstances:
- The insurance company or the defendant refuses to negotiate a fair settlement.
- The insurance company denies the claim.
- The unique circumstances of your case are such that, the severity of your injuries, the amount(s) of the defendant’s insurance coverage and the evidence and arguments proving the defendant’s liability are compelling.
An insurance settlement offers several benefits to you as a plaintiff:
- Compensation is usually recovered quicker in a settlement.
- You avoid the emotional and financial stress of going to trial.
- Personal details about your case will be kept confidential.
A Floral Park personal injury lawyer will explain how the settlement works and when you can expect compensation.
