Patchogue Personal Injury Attorneys

Personal injuries can happen anytime and anywhere, from traffic collisions to construction sites to your own doctor’s office. They can leave you in pain, struggling to pay bills, and unable to support your family.

If someone else’s negligence caused your injury, a personal injury lawyer serving Patchogue from Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP can help you. We could take legal action against the at-fault party and try to make them pay for your expenses and other losses.

The Duties of a Personal Injury Attorney From Our Firm

Experienced personal injury lawyers serving Patchogue NY area.Our personal injury lawyers take care of every aspect of our clients’ cases from start to finish. Here is a brief walkthrough of how your case may proceed after you hire us:

Collecting Evidence

Different kinds of personal injury accidents could leave behind various forms of evidence.

For instance:

  • In traffic collision cases, we can look for traffic camera footage, witnesses who can testify on your behalf, and the police’s official report on the crash.
  • In medical malpractice cases, we can look at your medical records and find out if anyone else has filed a complaint against your healthcare provider for similar reasons.
  • In construction accident cases, we can review inspection reports and other records to see what the safety track record of that site looks like.

This information could tell us many things about your case, including:

  • Who caused the accident—or, put another way, who you should sue
  • How the at-fault party caused the accident
  • How much compensation you deserve
  • How we should go about fighting your case

Handling Administrative Tasks

Lawsuits often involve a great deal of time-consuming work.

This includes:

  • Organizing evidence in a way that the insurer or a jury will find convincing and easy to understand
  • Selecting and filling out forms
  • Drafting the demand letter and the settlement agreement
  • Accepting calls and emails from the liable party and their representatives

Trying to handle these tasks alone is more than tedious. It is potentially dangerous.

All it takes is one careless word for the liable party’s insurance company to:

  • Claim that you not their client caused the accident
  • Undervalue or completely dismiss your injuries
  • File a countersuit and try to get your insurer to cover the at-fault party’s damages

Our lawyers know just how to handle insurance companies and attorneys. We can also advise you about what to say and when to say it, so the insurer never gets a chance to use your own words against you.

Negotiating for Compensation

Many insurance companies agree to negotiate a pretrial settlement because paying a settlement takes less time and costs less money than going through a typical courtroom trial.

If the liable party’s insurance company agrees to sit down and negotiate, we can arrange a time and place to do so.

Then we can:

  • Present the evidence we have collected
  • Use our evidence to support your need for damages and dispute any counterclaims they might make
  • Engage in back-and-forth negotiations
  • Report back to you with any settlement offers they make, as well as our opinion regarding whether or not the settlement is fair
  • Refuse to back down until they agree to pay what you deserve and no less

Going to Trial

Your case may or may not go to trial, depending on the liable party’s willingness to negotiate in good faith and offer fair compensation. However, you will want to prepare for the possibility of a trial ahead of time by hiring a firm like ours, which can handle courtroom appearances in addition to pretrial negotiations.

At trial, we aim to convince a jury to award you damages.

We can do this by:

  • Submitting all of our evidence for the jury’s consideration
  • Arranging for witnesses and experts to either testify in person or submit written statements on your behalf
  • Cross-examining the defense’s witnesses in ways that undermine their credibility
  • Delivering powerful opening and closing arguments that summarize your case

Not every personal injury law firm in Patchogue will go to trial. You can save yourself the trouble of having to hire a second firm later on by hiring Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP from the start.

Personal Injury Compensation We Can Fight For

You have suffered physically, financially, and emotionally because of your personal injury.

In serving our Patchogue clients, our lawyers can determine how much they deserve for:

  • Lost earnings: Do your injuries require you to take time off from work? Is there a chance you will never work again?
  • Medical expenses: Did you need treatment from a medical professional, such as a doctor, a pharmacist, a dentist, a psychiatrist, a surgeon, or someone else?
  • Pain and suffering: Did you experience physical and/or psychological trauma because of the accident?
  • Reduced quality of life: Do you need help with tasks that you used to perform independently and easily? Have you had to give up activities you enjoy?
  • Disability: Do your injuries prevent you from moving or using your body as you once did? Did you sustain a head injury that caused permanent brain damage?

Every case involves different combinations of damages. Asking for the combination that fits your case is vital: any miscalculations could provide the liable party’s insurer with the excuse they need to turn down your request.

How to Hire Our Personal Injury Firm

We strive to make it as easy as possible for potential clients to retain the legal assistance they deserve after a devastating injury.

These tips can help you feel comfortable and confident when you select our services:

  • Go through our website: Our site tells you all you need to know about the types of cases we handle and our past successes. You can read through our client testimonials to see the kind of service we provide to people just like you.
  • Take advantage of a free case review: All you have to do is call our office. Members of our team are standing by now to assess your case at no cost or risk to you.
  • Brainstorm questions: Before coming in for your first meeting, think about what you want to know about your rights, our services, and your legal options. Write these questions down and bring them with you when you come to see us.
  • Ask us anything: We encourage openness and honesty with our clients and will be happy to answer any and all questions you ask. We want to ensure you are comfortable with the legal process before we take action.

The Cost of Hiring Our Personal Injury Lawyers

One question you may have concerns payment: how much do our personal injury lawyers cost?

Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP works on a contingency-fee basis—in other words, we charge no attorney’s fees up front, and we only expect payment if and when you recover compensation.

This means:

  • You do not have to worry about paying for our services right away.
  • You can pay us a percentage of your compensation instead of paying out of pocket.

In addition to attorney’s fees, you may have to pay for legal expenses, such as the cost of collecting evidence or traveling to the courtroom. We can tell you everything you need to know about our pay structure before we begin.

The Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

Your right to pursue compensation only lasts for a limited time. Generally, you must begin a personal injury suit within three years of the accident, according to state law.

This deadline might change depending on:

  • What type of incident caused your injury. State law, for instance, usually gives medical malpractice survivors just two and a half years to start a suit. A claim against a government body, however, can reduce that deadline to a matter of months.
  • What type of party you sue.
  • Whether you can convince the court to grant you an extension due to extenuating circumstances.

We always recommend that personal injury survivors start their cases as soon as possible. Not only can this prevent you from running into the statute of limitations, but it also gives us more time and makes it easier to find crucial evidence to support your lawsuit.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Attorneys Take

At Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP, we understand that every personal injury case is different and requires a personalized approach. Our team has experience with all of the following types of cases:

Traffic Collisions

All sorts of people and vehicles share Patchogue’s roadways, including:

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Motorcyclists
  • Bicyclists
  • Pedestrians

It only takes one careless individual a distracted driver, for instance, or a trucking company that overworks its drivers to cause an accident.

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals bear the important responsibility of listening to patient concerns and prescribing appropriate treatments.

They leave themselves open to a lawsuit if they:

  • Prescribe the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of a medication
  • Misdiagnose or fail to diagnose the patient’s condition
  • Fail to properly communicate with your other providers, resulting in you receiving a contraindicative set of treatments
  • Fail to warn you of the risks associated with a particular treatment

Nursing Home Abuse

Placing a loved one in a nursing home can be a difficult decision, but you do so believing that your loved one will receive the care they need.

A good nursing home will not break that trust, but a poor one might:

  • Not provide your loved one with necessary medical care or basic needs
  • Treat your loved one too roughly, e.g., by not using the proper equipment to lift them out of bed or into a vehicle
  • Actively physically abuse your loved one by slapping or shoving them
  • Verbally or emotionally abuse your loved one by mocking, scolding, or belittling them
  • Provide insufficient protection from unqualified staff or even predatory fellow residents

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous places to work.

You could suffer an injury if:

  • Your employer does not provide adequate training or safety equipment.
  • Your employer does not adequately maintain the equipment you use, leading to malfunctions or breakdowns.
  • The owner of the property you work on allows unsafe practices to continue.
  • The materials or equipment you use contain inherent flaws that make them dangerous and that the manufacturer should have known about.

We don’t handle workers’ compensation cases, but we’re happy to work with your workers’ compensation attorney.

Premises Liability

You may visit other people’s property multiple times a day to do your job, go shopping, and more.

If someone invites you onto their property, either explicitly or implicitly, for any reason, they have an obligation to keep that property free from obvious hazards, such as:

  • Swimming pools without proper gates, fences, or warning signs
  • Snowy, wet, or icy walkways
  • Loose carpeting or wiring, objects left lying around, and other trip hazards
  • Unkempt foliage that could obscure other dangers, like holes in the ground
  • Old, cracked pavement

When a Personal Injury Turns Fatal

Awarded TOP 100 TRIAL Lawyers by The National Trial LawyersSadly, there are all too many cases where a person suffers an injury that they cannot survive. Lawsuits filed in the wake of fatal injuries are called wrongful death suits.

There are a couple of ways our lawyers can help you file a wrongful death suit in Patchogue. If your loved one already started a personal injury case that they did not finish, we can turn that case into a wrongful death suit.

This may include appending additional damages to the demand letter, including:

  • Your sense of grief
  • Loss of society or companionship
  • Loss of financial support and security
  • Funeral and burial expenses

If your loved one did not start their own case for example, if they passed away at the accident scene you may start one from scratch. Either way, you deserve to see justice done after a wrongful death, and we want to help make it happen.
