What is the statute of limitations on New York personal injury claims?

In New York, the window of time you have in which to file a claim is three years from the date of your injury. However, it’s always best to start your claim as soon as possible to maximize the chances of a successful case.

It takes time to build a solid case, and the longer you wait to begin the process, the more missed opportunities there could be. Contact the New York City personal injury attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC to get started.

How much is my case worth?

An injury claim can range from thousands to millions of dollars.

It all depends on the extent of the damages you have experienced. The more serious and costly the injuries you’ve suffered, the more you should be given in compensation for those injuries. To get an estimate of your case’s value, contact Kaplan Lawyers PC for a free case evaluation.

What are the costs of a personal injury attorney in NY?

Launching a personal injury claim can be an intensive process for a law firm. The time, effort and resources required to build a successful case can be substantial. Attorneys can choose how they want to be paid. Some may work on an hourly rate, while others might want some payment upfront.

However, many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee.

This type of payment is good for clients because it means that they don’t have to carry the costs of a claim if it is ultimately unsuccessful.

How is fault determined in New York?

Each state has its own set of laws regarding fault.

New York is a comparative fault state, which means that even if someone was partially responsible for an incident that caused their injury, they still have the legal right to pursue compensation for the damages they have suffered. If you’ve been injured in New York City, you should consider exploring your legal options.

What is a contingency fee?

A contingency fee means that the client pays the attorney’s fee only if the case is successful and owes nothing if it is not. At Kaplan Lawyers PC, we operate on a contingency fee.

That means you face no costs if we don’t win you compensation.

We have faith in our personal injury attorneys to get results, and we want to be sure you don’t carry the costs if your claim doesn’t result in compensation.

What is the difference between a settlement and a trial?

A settlement is the resolution of a lawsuit through an agreement for a specified amount of money. When such an agreement can’t be reached, the matter goes to trial.

How does a trial work?

In a trial, both sides’ legal representatives argue their client’s cases before a judge and a jury.

The jury will decide if the person accused of causing injuries should be held responsible and how much they owe the injured party.

How does a settlement work?

A settlement usually requires a lot of negotiation between the legal representatives of the parties involved in the lawsuit. The process can be quick (resolved in a matter of several days or weeks) or take more time (several months or longer), depending on the complexities of the case.

Though many personal injury claims in New York are settled before trial, experienced attorneys know that a case should be trial-ready to ensure clients get the best possible result, even if the matter is ultimately resolved in settlement.

What is negligence?

Negligence is one of the most important concepts in personal injury law.

Negligence is carelessness or recklessness. If someone acts in a manner that disregards the safety of others, whether or not they intend to cause harm, they are considered negligent.

Our New York City injury attorneys will investigate the causes of your injury to determine who was negligent and how much they owe you.

How much is my case worth?

An injury claim can range from thousands to millions of dollars.

It all depends on the extent of the damages you have experienced. The more serious and costly the injuries you’ve suffered, the more you should be given in compensation for those injuries. To get an estimate of your case’s value, contact Kaplan Lawyers PC for a free case evaluation.

When I was hurt after slipping on ice I never imagined what a long, difficult recovery I would face. That is when I called your office for help. I will never forget what Kaplan Lawyers did for me & my family during this difficult time in our lives.

After my car accident the adjustor form the insurance company met with me and told me that they would take care of everything. But then they told me that I had to see the insurance company doctors and that is when everything changed. Kaplan Lawyers negotiated a settlement for me and I got much more than my insurance company adjustor had offered.
