Personal Injury Attorneys: Your Interests Are Our Interests

Personal injury attorneys serve more than just their clients. Countless regulations that keep people safe are in place because of personal injury lawsuits brought by New Yorkers.

Personal injury refers to physical and emotional harm inflicted upon an individual as a result of another’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional harm. While personal injuries can range in severity, from minor scrapes to traumatic brain injuries and death, all can be devastating events.

In New York State, personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. That means that no personal injury lawyer receives any compensation until the case results in a settlement that is favorable to his or her client.

Personal injury attorneys often find that that the people who come to them are struggling under the burden of their disabilities – disabilities that can prevent them from working or even obtaining medical care. Personal injury lawyers can help their clients improve their lives by putting them in touch with programs such as Medicaid and Social Security Disability Insurance.

On the big day in court, your attorney will help you stay calm and collected, so that you make the best impression on the judge or jury. Remember, because of the contingency system, your lawyer has as much of an interest in your case as you do.

With all of their medical expenses paid for, many injured people go on to thrive, despite their limitations.

Types of Injuries

Personal injury lawyers handle almost any kind of case that involves a life-altering injury. The judge or jury will look at several factors when evaluating the merits of your case, like loss of income, and the contributing factors of your injury.
