Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers in New York

A personal injury law professional is an expert in tort law who specializes in personal injury lawsuits, mediation, and arbitration cases. A personal injury is any injury sustained during an accident or incident in which another person or party is involved. Serious injuries that are often the cause of personal injury claims include but are not limited to:

If you or a loved one are injured due to an incident or accident, you can contact a personal injury lawyer for assistance filing a lawsuit or understanding your legal options. Personal injury lawyers have a track record of knowing the ins and outs of both federal and state laws regarding lawsuits, such as the personal injury lawsuit statute of limitations.

  • More likely to result in significant damages for your injuries
  • Easier and smoother

How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Help?

Personal injury lawyers can provide a wide range of assistance and services depending on your case’s specifics.

Collect Evidence for Clients

For example, personal injury lawyers can collect evidence on behalf of their clients. If you or a loved one are injured and recovering from an accident, assault, botched surgery, or another incident, the last thing you want to do is visit police stations, gather traffic camera footage, and speak to eyewitnesses about the event.

The right legal team can do that work for you. In fact, knowledgeable personal injury lawyers know exactly who to talk to and how to find the best evidence to bolster the strength of your case.

When you hire Schwartzapfel Lawyers for your personal injury lawsuit, we will:

  • Investigate traffic cameras or store camera footage
  • Speak to the police to secure police reports and official accounts of what happened
  • Speak to eyewitness referrals to determine whether any eyewitness accounts can be used for your case
  • And more!

In the meantime, you can focus on recovering from your injuries without having to worry about over-straining yourself.

Coach Clients

In addition, personal injury lawyers from our law office can provide legal advice to clients just like you, so they know what to say and how to say it in court or during arbitration meetings. Having the right evidence is just part of winning a personal injury lawsuit; presenting that evidence in an ideal way is the other.

If you are called to the stand, or if your testimony is required, personal injury attorneys like Schwartzapfel Lawyers can tell you:

  • What you should say to persuade a judge or jury
  • How you should present yourself, including how you should dress
  • What you should avoid saying that might be used against you by a defense attorney, as well as help you avoid accidentally admitting to fault for a motor vehicle accident or other accident case

Client coaching is just one of the ways that our personal injury law firm offers support for each of our clients. When you hire Schwartzapfel Lawyers, you don’t just get legal professionals to read documents and make recommendations. You get trained experts who will be at your side throughout the entire legal process.

Provide Legal Counsel

The core task of personal injury lawyers is to provide sound legal counsel to injury victims. At Schwartzapfel Lawyers, we offer legal counsel based on:

  • Your needs or preferences, such as how much you need in terms of medical compensation
  • The circumstances of your case, as well as likely evidence or eyewitness testimony
  • The chances of securing a payout if you sue an at-fault or negligent party

Our accident attorneys will help you make the best decision for an accident victim and their entire family. For instance, you may not know whether you have grounds for a lawsuit against a business owner, your supervisor, a driver, or another party.

With our extensive experience, we can tell you whether your lawsuit grounds are solid or if you should pursue alternative means of legal resolution.

Negotiate With Insurance Companies

Personal injury lawyers like Schwartzapfel Lawyers also offer assistance when it comes to dealing with insurance companies. For instance, if you are injured in an auto accident, your insurance company may try to avoid paying you any money to cover your medical bills to cut down on costs or for other reasons.

Arguing and negotiating with insurance companies is something you shouldn’t have to do while you are recovering from a major accident. Schwartzapfel Lawyers can shoulder this burden for you and make the recovery process easier as a result.

In addition, personal injury attorneys can speak to workers’ compensation insurance companies for the same reasons. 

Bottom line: Experienced lawyers know how to talk to insurance companies to ensure that your interests are protected.

Damages From Personal Injury Cases

With the right personal injury lawyer working on your side, you could see significant compensation or damages from a successful personal injury lawsuit. Courts may award damages for personal injury cases in one of two ways.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are intended to reimburse you for economic losses, such as the loss of property, medical bills, and more. For instance, if your car is totaled in a car accident with a drunk driver, you could file a lawsuit against the at-fault party and recover economic damages to help you buy a new vehicle.

Economic damages can also be important when paying medical bills. Broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) like concussions, lacerations, spinal damage, and more can incur massive medical expenses. Even if you have some savings, they may not be enough to cover the full price of several surgeries, physical therapy, and ancillary costs.

Economic damages may cover:

  • Past and future medical bills, provided those medical bills are related to your injuries
  • Therapy bills
  • Lost income if you have to take time off work, losing money as a result

Non-Economic Damages

In addition to economic damages, your personal injury lawyers may help you receive non-economic damages. Non-economic damages are intended to compensate you for non-economic losses, such as:

  • Psychological harm, including psychological injuries, mental anguish, emotional distress, and so on
  • Pain and suffering you may have experienced in an accident or incident
  • Loss of companionship or consortium (i.e., one’s spouse is killed in an auto accident)
  • And more

Non-economic damages are not as common as economic damages, but you may have grounds to pursue them depending on the circumstances and specifics of your case. Schwartzapfel Lawyers can help you determine whether non-economic damages are on the table. Contact us today online or at 1-516-342-2200 for a free case evaluation and more information.

When To Hire Personal Injury Attorneys

If you or a loved one is involved in any kind of accident, the first thing you should do is get yourself to safety. Contact medical professionals and let them examine you so that they can provide you with the necessary treatment.

After receiving medical care, you should then contact a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you invite personal injury attorneys to your case, the better. We can help you avoid making statements that may implicate you in court and begin the important process of filing lawsuit paperwork or gathering evidence for your upcoming trial.

Don’t wait to get the legal representation you are entitled to. Instead, hire Schwartzapfel Lawyers as soon as you are medically stabilized. Even just calling us for a free consultation at 1-516-342-2200 could help you better understand your legal options and choose the right path forward for you and your family.
