How Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. Can Go After the Compensation You Need

While the thought of handling an injury case on your own could be intimidating and overwhelming, you don’t have to go through the process alone. Our attorneys are here to handle all the legal details so you can focus on your recovery.

We will:

  • Investigate your case
  • Identify the party (or parties) responsible for your injury
  • Gather evidence to prove liability and your losses
  • Handle all the communications with third parties for you
  • Handle the settlement process and negotiate a resolution out of court
  • Take your case to trial and seek awards before a jury
  • Advise you on how New York’s personal injury laws could affect your case
  • Ensure that your right to seek compensation is protected
  • Seek the best possible compensation for your Valley Stream case

Our personal injury attorneys also work based on contingency, which means you pay us no upfront costs to get started on your case. If you don’t win, you don’t pay.

What does It Mean to Prove Liability?

Our attorneys will show why the defendant is liable – in other words, that they are financially responsible for your losses. To show that they owe you compensation, we will gather evidence demonstrating that:

  • They owed you a duty of care
  • They breached that duty of care through carelessness or recklessness
  • You were harmed as a result
  • You suffered damages, such as financial and non-financial losses

To gather evidence, we will look to sources such as police reports, incident reports, witness statements, your medical records, records of past violations, and more.

You don’t have to worry about gathering evidence yourself when you work with our team. We know what kinds of evidence is best suited to backing up your compensation claims.

What Is Entailed in the Settlement or Lawsuit Process?

Injury victims regularly ask us if they need to file a lawsuit. The answer is: maybe. To determine if you need to file suit against the defendant, we will first investigate your case. Then, we will explain the legal option that’s best for your case.

Often, we can reach an agreement with the liable party’s representative through an out-of-court settlement. However, the other party may not be fair in negotiations. If they do not agree to the amount we demand, we can take your case to trial.

If we do file a lawsuit, we will ensure you understand every step in the process. We will also handle every aspect of litigation for you, such as preparing evidence, cross-examining witnesses, and more.

What do You Mean By “the Best Compensation Possible”?

An injury case’s value doesn’t come with a predetermined settlement amount. Instead, many factors could affect what you receive in a payout. Our team will walk you through these factors and explain what a fair offer could look like in your unique case.

Significant factors in an injury settlement include:

  • The seriousness of your injuries
  • How expensive your medical care is
  • How the injuries affected you personally, from your career to your relationships
  • Who is named as the liable party

When we say that we’ll seek the best possible compensation for you, we mean that we will fight for the highest possible dollar value for all of these categories of losses. This means that we can:

  • Estimate the cost of your future medical care in addition to your previous costs
  • Work with expert witnesses to demonstrate the value of your intangible losses, such as pain and suffering
  • Advise you on lowball settlement offers
  • Use our experience in negotiation to assert your right to fair compensation

What You Can do to Protect Your Right to Compensation in Valley Stream, NY

Once you hire our personal injury lawyers, we can immediately get to work protecting your rights. However, before you contact us, there are many ways you can help to lay a solid foundation for your case.

Consider these tips for protecting your potential settlement or award:

Get All the Medical Care Your Doctor Recommends

When you get emergency care for your initial injuries, you’re taking a great step for your health and for your potential compensation. Still, don’t let your actions stop there. If your doctor orders additional testing, treatment, or follow-up visits, follow through.

Ensuring that you follow your doctors’ orders can show the insurance company and the liable party’s lawyers that:

  • You did everything you could to prevent your own injuries from worsening
  • Your injuries are connected to a crash or another incident
  • Your injuries prevented you from returning to work
  • Your injuries are serious or require ongoing care

When the insurance company looks for ways to challenge your claim for compensation, your health history is one place they’ll look. If you have a solid record of medical care for the injuries caused by the crash, they may have a harder time downplaying your case.

Avoid Making a Recorded Statement

Making a recorded statement with an insurance adjuster is never advised. If the insurance company contacts you and asks for such a statement, tell them they can speak to your lawyer.

Unfortunately, these statements can be used as evidence to diminish the validity of your case. An insurance company can take your words out of context or ask misleading questions that steer you towards self-harming statements.

Know You don’t Need to Accept the First Settlement Offer

The first offer an insurance company makes you isn’t definitive. You are under no obligation to accept this offer, even if you feel pressured to do so. After all, insurance companies commonly offer low initial settlement offers before a victim hires a lawyer. This first offer may not reflect your true medical care costs, your pain and suffering, and other damages.

Ultimately, hiring our team is one potential way to negotiate a higher settlement and seek the full range of compensation that you deserve.

Hang Onto Important Evidence

Several forms of evidence are important to keep for your records, such as:

  • Police reports: If you were in a car collision, you can get this report from the Nassau County Police Department.
  • Witness contact information: If you were able to speak with witnesses to the injury incident, hang onto their phone number or other contact information.
  • Injury-related receipts: Whether the injury caused you to incur transportation costs, medical device costs, or other out-of-pocket expenses, we can include these in your case value.
