The Meyers Law Firm represents victims of personal injury. New York personal injury law protects those harmed by injuries caused by accidents, permanent impairment, and death. New York State has a limited statute of limitations to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim. The Meyers Law Firm ensures you get the representation you deserve, getting you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
- Trip and Fall– A fall can send you to the hospital with severe and painful injuries that require surgery and physical therapy to heal. Sometimes these accidents result in lifelong debilitating conditions, and your life is forever changed due to the negligence of a business or owner.
- Pedestrian Knock Down– These accidents can occur in crosswalks, garages, and parking lots. They are usually caused by drivers failing to yield, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, and reckless driving.
- Medical Malpractice– Thousands of patients are killed or seriously injured each year due to medical malpractice. In New York, medical errors are more common than most people realize. Patients and their families need legal support to preserve their rights.
- Auto accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents – Vehicles are the most common cause of personal injuries in New York. Injuries vary depending on the severity of the accident.
Laws vary for how a lawsuit can be filed in each type of accident or injury. We offer guidance and explain your options based on your specific situation.
Have you been injured in an auto accident? You may be entitled to compensation and The Meyers Law Firm can help.
When you have been in an auto accident, the insurance companies will not play fair. They absolutely will not offer you the settlement amount that you deserve, unless you are represented by a New York auto accident attorney. An insurance adjuster’s job is nothing more than to avoid paying claims. Do not let these companies take advantage of you. Contact a competent personal injury attorney at The Meyers Law Firm to protect your rights as soon as you are able. It is important that you do not give any type of statement to any insurance company before you have official legal representation, whether you were in an auto accident, a trip and fall, or a construction accident. Do not allow them to prey on your pride.
If you were injured in a trip and fall, a construction accident, or a trip and fall incident, you are legally entitled to seek monetary compensation for your injuries. You should not be stuck dealing with your physical and emotional pain or the weight of your medical bills alone. If you feel that you are owed compensation, you have the option of filing a personal injury claim. Working with a New York, NY personal injury attorney, auto accident attorney, construction law attorney, or trip and fall attorney will give you the best chance of recovering a fair and just settlement.
New York No-Fault Insurance
In New York, auto insurance companies are required to cover the costs of any accident their clients are involved in up to $50,000, no matter who is at fault. There is a very short time limitation for filing the forms with the correct insurance company in New York State, which is why it’s so important to speak to an attorney after an accident as soon as possible. We help ensure that you receive the medical care you need and deserve.
The New York Serious Injury Threshold
If an accident victim has qualifying injuries, they can legally pursue compensation for losses directly against the other driver or responsible party for pain and suffering and other non-economic losses.
Personal injury matters are confusing and can become more complicated due to many factors. A professional, experienced New York attorney can protect your rights and represent you when negotiating claims and in court.
