Personal Injury Resources:
Can My Attorney Resolve My Case Without Asking for My Permission?
We will never settle your claim without your permission at US Legal Law, Rockland County. There are recommendations on whether or not to settle, but the ultimate choice to settle is yours.
I Got Hurt A Few Years Ago. Is My Case Still Open?
It all depends. The state of New York has a statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit in court.
- Slip and fall cases must be filed within three years following the accident, according to the statute of limitations.
- Cases of wrongful death must be brought within two years of the death.
- Medical malpractice claims must be brought within two and a half years of the disease or injury.
- Cases involving negligence or mental suffering must be brought within three years of the accident.
What If an Insurance Company or An Investigator Contacts Me?
We recommend that you do not share your injuries or how it occurred with anybody until you have spoken with an attorney. Also, signing any paperwork or agreeing to any settlement before consulting with an attorney may jeopardize your potential to recover full compensation for your injuries.
Money Is Limited Following My Injury Then How Can I Manage to Pay to Attorney?
We recognize that medical bills, time away from work, and mental turmoil can make money especially tight following an accident at the Law Offices. This is why we work with our clients on a contingency fee basis. You will not owe us anything until we are successful in obtaining monetary recompense on your behalf.
Will I Be Able to Consult with An Attorney Before Filing a Lawsuit?
Yes! We provide free introductory consultations to all prospective clients.
What Necessary Things Should I Bring to My Consultation with A Lawyer?
Any papers that may be significant to your case should be provided to a lawyer. Eyewitness information and specifics on the conditions surrounding auto accidents, fires, and attacks, for example, can be found in police reports. Copies of medical reports and hospital bills will help illustrate the degree and severity of your injuries. Any information you have on the insurance of the individual who caused your injury, as well as any images you have of the accident scene, your property damage, and your injury, is incredibly valuable. The more information you can provide your lawyer, the easier it will be for him or her to establish the viability of your claim. Don’t worry if you didn’t bring any documents to your first meeting; your lawyer will be able to obtain them as part of his assessment of your claim.
How Do I Figure Out Who Is to Blame for My Injuries?
When you choose to engage with our firm, we will investigate your case and study medical records, police reports, insurance claims, and other key documents to establish who may be accountable for your injuries. We seek to hold the responsible person responsible for their acts.
How Much Time Is Needed to Complete the Case?
Each case is unique, and the time span between investigation, discovery, filing the lawsuit, and completion may change. Depending on the facts of your case, it could take months or even years to finish. However, if you need a divorce quickly, you should have an advocate on your side.
