Q. How Do I Know If I Qualify For A Settlement?

A. There are three factors generally considered in awarding a settlement:

1. Determining fault.
2. Determining the extent of injuries.
3. Is there applicable insurance to cover the claim?

Q. How Much Money Should I Ask For Or Expect?

A. An experienced attorney can provide you with court approved verdicts or settlements involving similar injuries.  Your specific case could be limited by available insurance or any finding of comparative fault which would reduce your award.

Q. What Kind Of Expenses Are Typically Included In A Settlement?

A. In New York State, attorneys are only permitted to charge expenses that are approved by the court.  Typically, they involve outside experts or court costs where the attorney has to spend money that is necessary to develop your case.  Expenses do not include lawyers' time or overhead.

Q. Have I Waived My Rights Because I Signed A Consent Form?

A. Believe it or not, a consent form does not necessarily prevent you from bringing a claim.  If there is a maxim in the law that does not commit anyone to be negligent and harm you, even if we signed a consent.

Q. Can I Get An Immediate Cash Advance?

A. If we accept your case and it meets the standards of our lending company, you would qualify for cash an advance on your case. Additionally, no-fault insurance and worker’s compensation could provide lost wages and medical benefits quickly.

Q. How Much Does Your Firm Charge?

A. We work strictly on a contingency fee basis.  That means if we don’t win your case, we don’t get paid and you owe us nothing.  If we are successful, we receive a percentage, typically 1/3 or less depending on the type of claim.  Expenses only come out of a successful result.

Q. Will I have to go through a trial in court before my case is finished?

A. While some cases do require a formal trial proceeding, many of our cases are settled before they go to court.

Q. I know lawyers can be expensive. How does your firm charge?

A. You pay nothing unless and until we recover money for you. Our fee is a percentage of that recovery.
