Injured in an Accident? Why You Need an Accident Lawyer in New York City to Get Just Compensation

ny-train-wreckAn accident takes only a few seconds, but the aftermath can last a lifetime. When you are seriously injured in an accident, it is natural to feel overwhelmed and frustrated. You may not know what to do or who to turn to. However, it is important to know that the steps you take or fail to take immediately following an accident can significantly impact the outcome of your personal injury claim and ability to obtain the compensation that you need. By hiring an experienced attorney from a prominent NYC law firm, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands and will get the just compensation that you deserve for the injuries that you have suffered.

The NYC lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. have the experience, knowledge and resources to help you obtain the full compensation that you are entitled to. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our clients who are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other parties.

Important Steps to Take After an Accident

When you are injured in an accident, you need to take several important steps in the immediate aftermath to protect your legal rights. Below are five things to consider after an accident:

  1. Call 911. If you are able to do so, and no one else already has, you should call 911 to send emergency responders. This is especially important if you or another party is seriously injured.
  2. Request a police report to be prepared. A police report will ensure that the details of the accident are properly documented by a neutral third party.
  3. Seek medical attention. You should seek medical help immediately after an accident. Even if you think your injuries are minor, it is still important to get a physical check up by a doctor because symptoms of certain medical conditions may not surface until days or even weeks after an accident.
  4. Do not admit fault or provide a statement to an insurance adjuster. You should never admit fault or apologize to any party involved in the accident. Additionally, you should not provide any statement, especially a recorded statement, to any insurance adjuster. Adjusters typically call victims within 24 hours after an accident in the hopes of obtaining a statement that will minimize their insured’s liability. Insurance companies have one goal, to pay as little as possible. They will take any necessary steps to meet this goal.
  5. Contact an accident attorney. By hiring an attorney who specifically handles accidents in New York City, you can be confident that your legal rights are protected while you focus on healing your injuries.

Common Injuries Suffered by Accident Victims

Depending on the specific facts of how an accident occurred, a victim can suffer serious injuries that will require extensive and expensive medical care. Below are some injuries that are common to most accidents:

  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injury
  • Neck and back pain
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Bruising
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Torn ligaments
  • Death

Regardless of what type of injury you suffered, if another party caused the accident you may be entitled to compensation.  At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we will work hard to help you obtain compensation for your past and future medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and any other out of pocket expenses you incurred as a result of your accident.

Why Hire an Accident Attorney?

There are various reasons why you should hire a NYC accident lawyer and not trust the insurance company to have your best interests in mind. While you are recuperating and taking care of your injuries, you want to have someone on your side acting in your best interest. Although an insurance adjuster may promise that they will protect you or want to help you that is not their intention. In fact, their only goal is to minimize their pay out and value your claim as little as possible.
