Personal injury encompasses several types of injuries caused by the negligence of another. Not every Queens personal injury attorney handles every type of accident. When looking for a Queens personal injury lawyer, ensure that the firm has experience with the type of accident you suffered.

Why Choose a Queens Personal Injury Lawyer
You should choose a Queens personal injury lawyer for many reasons, including handling insurance companies that will try anything to deny a case or offer you a pittance, especially if your doctors believe your injuries will become long-term or permanent disabilities. Kaplan Law’s personal injury lawyers in Queens have extensive experience in personal injury law and handling insurance companies.
In some cases, insurance companies refuse to offer fair and reasonable settlements, even though they know that litigation is very expensive for them. We are not afraid to step up to the plate and start litigation to protect your rights and recover the compensation you deserve after suffering injuries because of another’s negligence.
In many cases, once an insurance company realizes that we will not hesitate to litigate, it settles for an appropriate amount. If we have to litigate and we win, the insurance company not only has to pay their high-priced attorneys, but they also have to pay your attorneys’ fees and costs. It costs them much less to settle for a fair and reasonable amount.
Types of Personal Injury Cases Kaplan Law Handles
If you retain an attorney who does not have experience in the type of accident you were in, there’s a bigger risk of losing your case. While personal injury law is mostly the same, certain areas have different rules, laws and regulations that apply. For example, an attorney representing you in a truck accident case must know the state and federal regulations that apply to truck drivers. Dog bite attorneys must know the laws surrounding dogs at the city, county and state levels.
The Queens personal injury lawyers at Kaplan Law, PC have experience handling the following types of cases:
Queens is a well-traveled district, and there are several dangerous spots for both motorists and pedestrians. The intersection of Linden Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue and the intersection of Queens Boulevard and Long Island Expressway are two of the most dangerous in the city, but crashes can occur in any part of Queens. Our attorneys help clients get compensation for injuries caused by negligent drivers.
Our Queens vehicle accident attorneys help clients with all types of auto wreck cases, including:

Construction Worker Injuries in Queens
Just like many parts of the city, Queens has been in the midst of a construction boom for some time. With the rapid increase of construction in the borough comes the possibility of worker injury.

Queens Personal Injury Attorney FAQs
You might have some basic questions for us, in addition to those that pertain directly to your case. Many of our clients ask us the following questions:
How do I pay for personal injury lawyers in Queens?
Your initial case evaluation is free and without obligation at Kaplan Law, PC, Queens personal injury lawyers. We work on a contingency basis, which means you only pay attorneys’ fees if we win your case.
How soon should I contact Queens personal injury lawyers?
You should always contact a personal injury attorney in Queens as soon after the accident as possible. We understand that you might not feel well or are dealing with the funeral and burial of a loved one, but the sooner we can start working on your case, the more evidence we can gather to prove the other party’s negligence.
Why should I retain personal injury lawyers in Queens?
Insurance companies are in business to make money. Every claim they pay out decreases their bottom line. They will use tricks such as twisting what you say to deny your case or offer the least amount possible. In some cases, what they offer doesn’t even cover medical expenses, never mind other damages you are entitled to, such as pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of future earning income, and loss of quality of life.
Do I have to go to court for my case?
Not necessarily. We always try to settle a personal injury case first. However, if the insurance company refuses a fair and reasonable settlement, we are prepared to take your case to court. Sometimes the insurance company comes back with a fair and reasonable settlement after we file a court case, simply because it will cost them more to litigate than to pay you what you deserve.
We can expound on these and other questions you might have when you schedule a free case evaluation with Kaplan Law, PC.
