What Is Personal Injury?
A personal injury is an injury to one's mind, body or emotions. This may be caused by an intentional or unintentional action or even a failure to act on the part of another person. Under our common law, a civil wrong is called a tort. When you suffer an injury because of someone else's actions or behavior, it is important to contact a reputable personal injury law firm immediately to determine whether or not you have a viable claim. It is critical for your lawyers to be able to conduct accident investigations, get accurate witness statements and to preserve vital evidence as soon as possible after you are hurt. A personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal rights and can guide you through the complex maze of our ever-changing laws. It just makes sense to get a free initial consultation with us so you can learn your legal rights. Call us today at (212)580-6500 to discuss your potential case.
Handling Your Personal Injury Claim
If you take a few minutes to search the Internet, you will find thousands of websites offering information on personal injury laws and procedures. It is easy to get overwhelmed and confused by the sheer volume of available online information. At Buzin & Berman, PC, our lawyers take the time to sit down with you face-to-face and go over your personal injury claim in detail in every day language that makes sense. If you are hurt and can not visit our offices, we will arrange a meeting at your home or at the hospital. As personal injury lawyers, we have the experience to properly assess and evaluate your claim and we stand ready to help you with a free initial consultation.
The First Steps To a Successful Case
Most likely, immediately after your accident you will be angry, in pain, and confused as to what you should do. When you call our personal injury law firm, we are immediately ready to help you get the answers to your questions and guide you.
After receiving any emergency medical care that you need, your first call should be to a skilled personal injury lawyer. You should NOT give statements to ANY insurance company investigators (including investigators from your own insurance
company) without first seeking legal advice. With over 50 years of combined experience as personal injury lawyers, we can help you with your injury claims. Call us at (212)580-6500 for a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer and find out your legal options.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are in business to MAKE money, NOT spending it settling rightful claims. They have an entire corporate culture and system designed with the purpose of minimizing, delaying and avoiding the paying of claims. Often times they want you to settle quickly BEFORE you get a lawyer for a small fraction of what your case may be worth. They want you to accept payment and stop all future claims. The last thing insurance companies want you to do is to speak to a personal injury lawyer and learn what your rights are. The injuries suffered today may affect you for years to come, may prevent you from earning your livelihood and require expensive, ongoing medical care. At Buzin & Berman, PC we are committed to ensuring that you get the best shot at a fair and reasonable settlement for your personal injuries by being fully prepared to take your case to trial and verdict.
Bringing Your Personal Injury Case to Court
Experience has taught us that timely and aggressive litigation is the best way to get strong results in personal injury cases. While all clients and cases are unique and handled in accordance with their own specific circumstances, we generally initiate a legal action as soon as all our pre-action legal work is complete. The best offense inevitably will result in the best offer of settlement by the defendant. If the defendants and/or their insurance companies will not take the case seriously and make a fair offer of settlement, we have the experience, resources and are prepared to try your case to a verdict.
If you have been hurt, have a loved one who has been hurt, or just have a question about the your legal rights, please contact us at any time. Our initial consultation is always free of charge and we welcome your inquiries.
For your convenience, we speak Spanish, Russian, and Ukranian. For injury cases, we work on a contingency basis, so there is no legal fee unless we win compensation for you. Out-of-pocket case disbursements are however payable at the
conclusion of all matters.
