Personal Injury Lawyer in Utica
If you have a personal injury due to negligence, you are likely faced with emotional and financial hardship that deserves compensation from the person responsible for your injury. It is important to understand that you have a legal right to recover for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. If a family member has died due to the negligence of another, you can be compensated for their wrongful death.

What Our Attorneys Will Do
After an injury, you will need to determine whether you have claim for which you would be eligible for compensation. It is essential that you consult with an experienced attorney who will thoroughly investigate your case. At Bottar Leone, PLLC we know how to secure and review medical records to identify a deviation from the standard of care. We will collect evidence and analyze the law to determine whether or how you should proceed with a lawsuit in state or federal court.
Your first priority should be contacting an attorney as soon as possible if you suspect that negligence caused or contributed to your injury or the death of a family member. In the State of New York, there are deadlines for filing claims. You may have only 30 days to file paperwork to protect your rights. Untimely claims may be dismissed. After contacting our firm, we will work quickly to investigate your potential case.
Our firm pledges to help you recover all damages recognized by New York State law, including compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost benefits, and pain and suffering. You and your family have the legal right to be “made whole” which means that the negligent defendant must fully compensate you for your losses.
Hiring the Right Attorney
It is very important to secure an experienced lawyer who will take your case to court, if necessary. If an attorney takes your case with no intention of going to trial, and accepts a quick settlement, you may not get the compensation that you deserve for your loss. Our lawyers have decades of experience prosecuting personal injury cases through trial, and ensure that every case is trial ready in the event that mediation, arbitration or other settlement negotiations fail. While it is not our goal to take your case to trial, we understand that meticulous case preparation is the only way to attain a fair recovery.
If you have an injury, disability or other loss that you suspect is due to the negligence of another, contact our Utica firm for a free evaluation. Our attorneys work on contingency, which means that we don’t charge for our services until you are compensated for your injury through a settlement or jury verdict. We will assist you in determining the deadline for filing your claim and discuss your circumstances and potential case.
