Car collisions are by far one of the leading causes of accidental injury and death in New York. But people can be injured in any situation, including while they are at work.

Personal injury law encompasses a large variety of different claims. Most people seek out a personal injury attorney after they’ve been injured in a car accident. But car accidents are not the only situations where a person can seek aid through a civil claim. What follows below are just a few of the practice areas that our legal team can help you with.
No matter what type of accident you are injured in, it’s always best to seek out an attorney who focuses 100% of their practice on personal injury claims. Every case is different and requires a unique approach. A New York personal injury attorney can examine your case and let you know what your legal options are. Even if you’re partially at fault for an accident, you still may have legal recourse.
New York is a comparative fault state. In short, even if a person is 99% at fault for an accident, they can still seek damages through a civil claim. Any monetary award the person receives is reduced proportionately by the percentage they are found to have contributed to the accident. As a general principle, there are four elements that must be established to demonstrate liability in a negligence claim.
Insurance companies are not on your side. They will do everything in their power to try to deny responsibility for any accident. They often try to get plaintiff’s to give a statement which could be used to undermine their own case. When they can’t deny responsibility for an accident, they will downplay the extent of a victim’s injuries. They primarily make money by denying as many claims as possible and paying victims as little as possible.
It can be difficult to think clearly after a serious accident. This is especially true in instances where a family loses the person who was chiefly responsible for taking care of them financially. Whether you’re injured in a car accident or you fall while grocery shopping, there are a few basic steps that you should take to protect your rights.
Demonstrating liability for any accident is not a straightforward process. There are many pieces of evidence that should be preserved. There are also statute of limitations that must be observed. For example, if the victim for any accident was injured by a municipal entity in New York, they must file a Notice of Claim within 90 days. Failing to complete certain steps within the statute of limitations can result in a permanent forfeiture of your rights.
Many people assume that they don’t need an attorney after an accident. Some people want to take matters into their own hands. This is especially true when insurance companies step forward quickly and offer victims a settlement check. But the truth is that there are a number of ways that an attorney can help with your case, even if you’ve already been presented with a settlement check for any accident.
Hiring an attorney is a very personal decision. Our team of New York personal injury lawyers are here to answer any questions that you may have to help put your mind at ease. We have a long track record of successfully resolving claims for our clients. We are committed to helping accident victims get the maximum compensation that they deserve so that they can get back to living their life on their terms.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
