Car accidents remain one of the most common personal injury claims that people pursue. According to the National Safety Council , “In 2021, 46,980 people died in motor-vehicle crashes compared to 42,338 in 2020 and 39,107 in 2019.” But the attorneys at our office have extensive experience handling a wide variety of different claims. What follows are just some of the situations where we may be able to help.
No matter how you’ve been injured, it’s always a a good idea to seek the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance providers will do everything in their power to deny liability after any claim. It is also common for them to downplay the severity of a person’s injuries to minimize their financial obligation. A personal injury attorney can fight on your behalf to get you a fair and just outcome for your injuries.
In general, you can file a personal injury claim when you are injured by the negligent actions of another personal or entity. Negligence is simply the failure to behave with the level of ordinary care that a reasonable person would have exercised were they in the same ituation. For example, a driver may fail to look backwards and run into a pedestrian. There are a number of facts that need to be demonstrated in any negligence claim.
Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the unexpected expenses that come with a serious injury. Even if you were partially at fault for any accident, you may still have legal recourse. New York is one of multiple states that operates under a comparative negligence system. If you are deemed partially at fault for an accident, any damages will be proportionately reduced. Many people fail to pursue claims because they believe they were at fault, but this is often not the case. This is why it is so important to speak with an experienced attorney after any accident.
A serious accident can often be one of the most difficult things that most people will ever go through in their lives. Accident victims are often left with high medical bills and may need to take extensive time off of work. It is important to try to keep a clear head if you’ve been injured. What follows below are some of the steps that you should take if you’ve been harmed due to someone’s negligence.
After any serious accident, it is very common for people to be in a state of complete shock. Accidents can leave our bodies filled with adrenaline as we enter a fight or flight response. It may take several days or even months for a person to fully realize the extent of their injuries. In some cases, those with traumatic brain injuries may be at an increased risk for dementia and other neurological conditions. This is why it is so important to get checked out by a doctor and not assume that you were uninjured after any incident.

I was injured in 2011 and spent nearly 8 years with Ed Gersowitz and Jeff Korek. Their professionalism and care was beyond. The process was long and at times exhausting…
GLK provided excellent services for my lawsuit. I would work with them again and recommend them highly for anyone looking for a law firm that is attentive and responsive to clients’ needs. And they provided great results!
