Types of Personal Injury Cases
We handle many types of injury cases. The following are some examples of scenarios in which you would have an injury case.

If you were in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you likely have a case. We have handled many cases in which people were seriously injured in a car accident caused by someone else.
If you were walking or running in your neighborhood and a dog attacked you, causing serious damage, you may have a claim against the dog owner or handler. We have fought for justice for victims of dog bites.
If you need a lawyer’s help determining whether or not you have a claim, please call our office right away.
How to Get Justice for a Personal Injury Case
You will need to file a claim against the liable party in order to receive justice for your damages. Your justice will be received in the form of financial compensation.
The liable party’s insurance company is going to be financially responsible for covering your money damages. For example, the homeowner’s insurance will cover your damages if you slip and fall on someone’s home.
Your lawyer will need to negotiate with the insurance company to ensure that the settlement offer is fair.
One of the most important things about your case that you should know is that New York State has a statute of limitations that is three years from the date of the accident for most cases. If you attempt to bring a claim past three years from your accident, you will be barred from receiving compensation. There are very few exceptions to this statute. The sooner you reach out to a lawyer, the better.
