A personal injury lawsuit involves several key steps, including investigation, treatment, filing a complaint, discovery, negotiation, and trial if a settlement isn't reached. The Buffalo Injury Law Firm will guide you through each step, gathering evidence, assessing damages, and keeping open the possibility of settlement with the responsible party's insurance. Our goal is to secure a fair and just outcome, whether through settlement, litigation, or trial, to help you recover and move forward with your life.
The answer to this question is nuanced and requires a lawyer to analyze the facts of each case. The time frame, known as the statute of limitations, for filing a personal injury lawsuit varies by the type and the cause of injury. Generally, the time frame for personal injury cases in New York is three years from the date of injury. The time frame is less if the responsible party is a government entity, or it's a case involving wrongful death, or medical malpractice. It's critical to act swiftly. The Buffalo Injury Law Firm can help you understand New York's statute of limitations and ensure you don't miss any deadlines.
After a car accident, the immediate priority is your safety and well-being. Seek medical attention for any injuries and call the police to report the accident. Document the scene with photos, exchange information with the other driver, and gather witness details if possible. Be very careful when speaking to insurance companies as what you say can be used against you later. It's crucial to contact an experienced personal injury attorney at The Buffalo Injury Law Firm to protect your rights and navigate the complex legal process, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.
No-fault or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance acts as a financial safety net that automatically kicks-in after a car accident or truck accident. It comes from your own insurance company and triggers regardless of who's at fault. It will cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses you may incur after a car accident or truck accident. The Buffalo Injury Law Firm can help you timely file and navigate PIP claims to ensure you receive the benefits you're entitled to under your insurance policy.
The length of a case varies and depends on a bunch of factors. Many injury cases take at least a year to resolve because it takes that long to get the right treatment and understand the injuries. Another big factor is whether the insurance company on the other side is willing to cooperate and evaluate the claim fairly.
If the insurance company makes a low-ball offer or is unreasonable, then a lawsuit may be required. A lawsuit can tack on another year or so to the case. At The Buffalo Injury Law Firm, we work hard to work-up every case so the insurance company has a fair opportunity to settle for the most amount possible in the least amount of time. We'll keep you updated every step of the way, so you know what's happening. Our goal is to resolve your case as quickly as possible while making sure you get fair compensation.
