An early, hard-hitting investigation can uncover important evidence that could make a huge difference in your case. For this reason, our law firm immediately takes action, no matter what time of day or night, to preserve evidence before it is lost, destroyed, stolen or unavailable. We protect our client’s rights from overzealous insurance company adjusters whose primary objective is to deny the money and benefits you are entitled to. We launch a full-scale, thorough investigation into your accident to determine the cause, identify witnesses and determine who is at fault and hold the wrongdoers accountable. We are at the scene before evidence is destroyed and witnesses’ memories fade. We secure and obtain crucial documents, records, statements, photographs and/or video that may contain important evidence to support your case. Our NYC personal injury law firm also has developed valuable relationships with highly qualified, well-respected engineers, architects, construction professionals, accident reconstruction professionals, highway design experts, product liability experts, doctors, medical examiners and other experts who are an integral part of our investigations and development of proving liability and damages. We use state-of-the-art technology in our investigations, court presentations and case management.
Our creative investigative techniques give us an edge during settlement negotiations. We are often able to settle claims for high dollar amounts early in the process. If your insurance company or opposing counsel does not agree to pay your rightful compensation, we have the evidence we need to aggressively pursue your claim at trial.
A serious injury can change your life. In one moment, you are suddenly unable to do the things you once took for granted. You may not be able to work while medical bills pile up. You may suffer from pain and disabilities and face a long road to recovery. We care about what is happening in your life and we want to help you get the medical treatments you need. We respond immediately and effectively to your questions. From our staff to our partners, we listen to your concerns and help you find solutions. Our New York injury attorneys advise you as though you were our own family member.
We communicate regularly and candidly with clients through phone calls and written status reports. We keep you informed about the status of your claim and often call just to see how you are doing. To ensure that you can reach us 24-7, we provide our personal cell phone numbers.
If your injury precludes you from coming to one of our five New York offices, our lawyers will visit you at your home or at the hospital. We can also arrange for a car service so you can meet your legal team, including the lawyer’s, case manager and paralegals who are working on your case.
We speak Spanish and Korean and have access to interpreters to help injury victims who are not native English speakers.
An injury is not only physically and emotionally draining, but may also be financially challenging. You should not have to worry about falling into debt in your quest for justice. Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. takes your case on contingency so you can pursue and receive the money and benefits you are entitled to regardless of your current financial situation. Under our contingency fee arrangement, you do not owe us attorneys’ fees unless we recover money for you. In the unlikely event we do not recover compensation; you can choose to owe us nothing. That’s right – nothing, confirmed in writing, up front at time we are retained. We also advance the expenses of bringing a lawsuit and investigating the facts of your case. Upon recovery, you pay us a pre-set percentage of your damages award. A New York City personal injury lawyer at our firm will not only explain but put in writing, in plain English, not legalese, so you have a complete comfort level in hiring Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. Your first consultation is free, call us today so we can help you.

What We Help Clients With:
Meet Steven Schwartzapfel
For more than 35 years, Steven Schwartzapfel, the founding member of Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C., has been one of New York’s most prominent personal injury attorneys. Steve represents clients in all types of personal injury cases, and his experience, dedication and skills have enabled Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. to recover hundreds of millions of dollars over the years for their clients.
During the legal process, Steve’s commitment to his clients makes all the difference in the world. Schwartzapfel Lawyers treats clients like family. Steve’s passion for helping those in need stems from his childhood. His father suffered from multiple sclerosis and Steve experienced firsthand the heartache of not being able to take care of oneself, let alone one’s family. From this challenging experience, Steve understands the stress and frustration of not being able to do the simple things most people take for granted, such as getting out of bed, dressing, working and paying bills. He can relate to the losses the entire family suffers when a loved one suffers as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing and is left injured, maimed, disabled or killed.
