Answers from a New York Accident Lawyer
more than 30 years of experience in handling personal injury cases, Mitchell Kessler has helped countless individuals receive the compensation
they need and deserve for their injuries. He has compiled answers to common
legal questions here for your benefit.
Do I need a personal injury attorney?
When it comes to filing personal injury claims, it is not advisable that
you try to do it alone. Insurance companies are notorious for giving injury
victims the runaround in an attempt to offer them the lowest amount of
compensation possible. Don't let this happen to you. You can increase
your chances of obtaining the highest amount of compensation possible
by retaining the services of a skilled accident lawyer who can fiercely
advocate on your behalf and help protect your rights.
How much is my claim worth?
It is hard to say exactly how much your personal injury claim is worth,
but several factors contribute to the worth of your claim, such as the
severity of your injuries and the extent of the negligence displayed.
If your injuries are so serious that they will drastically affect your
capacity to earn a living or you are facing huge medical bills, your personal
injury claim could be worth much more.
What can I recover in a personal injury case?
When someone else’s actions have resulted in you being harmed, you
have likely needed medical treatment to recover. The most important thing
Attorney Kessler will fight on your behalf for is the right to have your
medical treatments, both present and future, taken care of. You should
not have to pay for your health and well-being! In addition, we will recover
pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of quality of life, and other
inconveniences associated with the injury.
How long will it take?
Because all personal injury cases are different, they are all settled under
different timelines. The duration of a case also depends on the cooperation
of the insurance company. At the firm, Mr. Kessler works closely with
clients from start to finish in order to settle their case as efficiently
and quickly as possible. Even if your case has to be fought in court,
Mr. Kessler does everything possible to litigate on behalf of his client
and help them receive fair treatment and compensation.
How much does it cost to speak to a personal injury lawyer?
Your family is probably experiencing a great deal of financial strain and
stress, which is why Mitchell Kessler offers all of his clients
free initial consultations. He can meet with you and learn about your case and the extent of your
injuries. He will then begin working immediately on a strong case strategy
that works for you.
What should I bring when meeting with a lawyer?
The most important thing that any attorney, court, and judge will want
to see is the documentation you can provide that illustrates the extent
of your injuries and how the other person or business is responsible.
For a meeting with a New York personal injury lawyer, you should bring
police reports, insurance information, photos of the accident, photos
of injuries, copies of medical records, correspondence with insurance
companies, receipts, estimates, and any other documentation related to
the case that you feel may be relevant.
