The Importance of Professional Representation by Experienced Lawyers

Some accident victims – particularly minor accidents – may be inclined to handle their personal injury claim themselves. As long as you are not seriously injured or inhibited in any way and can collect evidence, negotiate with insurers, and follow up with your case yourself, this is fine. However, many accident victims are unfamiliar with personal injury and insurance law. Furthermore, some accidents result in injuries that only become apparent weeks or months after the fact, such as whiplash that may not be immediately diagnosed after an accident.

If you file a claim or accept compensation for an accident from an insurance company and later have additional losses or expenses or new accident-related injuries diagnosed, you will have forfeited your right to additional compensation. This is why you must speak with our skilled accident injury attorneys in Peekskill, NY so that no compensable damage is overlooked and you are professionally represented by an experienced attorney. This will ensure that you are not taken advantage of and that your claim is thoroughly assessed and properly handled every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases in Peekskill, NY

What is my claim worth?

The value of your claim is based on your losses and damages. All accident-related losses and damages will be included in your claim. The more serious those losses and damages, the higher the potential value of your claim will be. Our Peekskill personal injury lawyers will collect evidence and we will use the testimony of subject matter experts to accurately quantify your losses. We will then file a claim for the maximum compensation amount that is allowed by law. With this expert testimony and hard evidence in hand, we will strive to ensure that your claim is not denied or arbitrarily reduced by the insurer for any reason.

How long do I have to file a claim?

As per the New York Courts, you typically have up to three years to file a claim. However, you should try to file your claim as soon as you can. Many insurers require all claims to be filed within 30 to 60 days of an accident. Furthermore, your employer (if you were involved in a workplace accident or have a workers’ comp case on hand) may require you to report the accident and your injuries in as little as 15 days after an accident. The longer you wait, the more the case specifics and details can become blurred in your mind as well. The insurers may also argue that you were not injured enough to immediately file a claim. It takes time to build a case and gather evidence, so it is best to contact us sooner rather than later so that we can initiate the case and file proceedings right away. Remember that our Peekskill personal injury lawyers have years of experience handling cases of all kinds and we are just a call away, so contact us today for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
