  • 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. Attorney Kessler will fight on your behalf for the right to have your medical treatment, 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 our clients and helps 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 we offer all of our clients free initial consultations. We can meet with you and learn about your case and the extent of your injuries, and 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. Don’t worry if you don’t have or can’t get some of these documents - we will get them for you.
