Getting the Help You Need
In New York, injured patients, workers, consumers and motorists can file a claim against a negligent party to recover for various categories of damages, including medical bills and lost wages. Personal injury victims can also receive compensation for “pain and suffering,” which can be both physical and emotional. Surviving family members of a wrongful death victim are also entitled to file a claim and receive compensation for their loss.
New York State law enables injury victims who were negligently harmed to recover for a surgical error, misdiagnosis, or other type of medical malpractice. In the same way, an injured motorist may recover from a trucking company for a tractor trailer accident, and a consumer may recover from a corporation for injuries or wrongful death caused by a dangerous medication.
Our team of trial-ready attorneys at Bottar Leone, PLLC have a track record of successfully representing personal injury cases. We will provide a thorough review of your case to determine whether you or a family member should pursue a lawsuit following an admission, accident, or incident.
Choosing Legal Counsel
It is essential to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after your injury. In the State of New York, there is a deadline for filing a claim. It is important to choose an experienced attorney to ensure your timely access to the legal system and help you receive full compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our dedicated attorneys work quickly to investigate the facts of each claim.
We also represent clients injured due to medical malpractice, a category of personal injury law that occurs when a health care provider or hospital fails to provide standard care, and that failure causes harm to a patient.
The lawyer you hire can affect your chances for recovering for your losses. It is important to ask questions about an attorney’s legal practice before hiring them to represent you. To learn about their qualifications, it will benefit you to inquire about the following factors:
- How long has the firm been in practice
- What portion of the attorney’s practice is devoted to complex personal injury matters
- Does anyone in the firm defend the negligent
- The firm’s track record of results
