Getting injured in any kind of accident can bring catastrophic changes to your life. You may find yourself wishing for the independence you had before the accident or longing for the career you had to give up afterward.
If someone else was at fault for the accident, these challenges may leave you with a massive sense of injustice. Fortunately, you have the option of bringing a personal injury lawsuit demanding compensation for the financial and emotional hardships you’ve experienced.
A Hempstead personal injury lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP will help you determine what your case could be worth and how best to pursue compensation. You can rest assured that our firm will work on your behalf to recover the full amount that you are due.
You are entitled to seek compensation to cover all financial expenses and non-economic losses that occur as a result of your personal injury. While many injury victims think to include their current medical bills, they don’t always remember to include potential future treatments.
Loss of income and earning potential along with therapy for mental distress should all be considered, as well.
Working with both your doctor and your Hempstead personal injury attorney will reveal how much your recovery will cost, the negative impact to your quality of life, and how long you can expect your injury to affect you.
If you’ve recently been injured in a car wreck, you’re probably unsure about what steps to take next. You want your car fixed and your health back but don’t know how to go about recouping your losses.
While your first step should be to file a no-fault claim with your own insurer, if someone else caused the wreck, you have a right to seek compensation for damages not covered by your personal injury protection (PIP).
However, insurance companies are always most concerned with their own bottom line. Be careful not to fall victim to their tactics, as they will probably offer you a lowball settlement that won’t compensate you for all of your pain and suffering.
If this is your situation, the first step is determining whether you have grounds for a personal injury case. A Hempstead car accident lawyer at Siler & Ingber, LLP will investigate your collision and make sure that you recover all that you are entitled to under the law.
It’s not easy to get fair treatment from an insurance company, even if it’s your own no-fault insurer. It can be especially frustrating, because you just want to concentrate on recovering, but instead, you must field calls from an insurance adjuster who is trying to settle your claim for the least money possible.
Unfortunately, insurance companies seem to take advantage of people in their most vulnerable moments. Their goal from the moment you open a claim is getting you to accept a settlement that covers the bare minimum of expenses and losses.
Working with a Hempstead car accident lawyer will allow you to focus on feeling better after your injury. Your lawyer will handle all negotiations and communication with the insurance company so that you don’t have to be concerned about the potential pitfalls.
Car accidents are almost always caused by someone’s careless behavior. Many collisions have more than one at-fault party to blame. Naming everyone responsible in your claim will allow you to receive the most compensation possible for your injuries and losses.
Your car accident lawyer will investigate what caused the collision and determine who was responsible. These are just a few of the crash causes that we have experience collecting evidence for:
Obtaining compensation that covers all of your damages, losses, and injuries requires determining the value of your claim before entertaining any settlement offers from the insurance company.
Your accident lawyer can work with your healthcare providers, thereby assessing exactly what your recovery will cost, how your enjoyment of life will be affected, and how long you can expect your injury to affect you.
Injuries suffered in an accident with an 18-wheeler or a semi-truck have the potential to be life changing. Not only will your injuries have a profound effect on your overall health, but the mental anguish can cripple you, leaving you disconnected from your life before the accident.
With medical bills piling up and your own vehicle thoroughly damaged, you may be wondering how to move forward.
If you were not at fault for the commercial trucking collision, you shouldn’t be expected to pay for these expenses. A Hempstead truck accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP can investigate your claim. We’ll determine who was at fault and how much they need to compensate you for your damages and losses.
Whether a driver works independently or for a trucking company, there are often a large number of individuals and companies responsible for running and maintaining a semi-truck.
Any or all of these parties could be at fault for a collision involving a commercial truck. Naming all the negligent parties in your personal injury claim will ensure that you receive complete compensation.
Most victims of semi-truck accidents want to know if they have grounds for a case and how best to proceed with their claim. The following list details several causes of truck accidents that will need to be considered when working with your lawyer to determine who was at fault:
Insurance companies are for-profit companies who are primarily motivated by the prospect of making money. This is just a simple fact. They are more concerned with profit margins than they are with attending to the needs of accident victims.
You don’t have to fight with the insurer on your own, however. Instead, let your Hempstead truck accident lawyer handle the communications and negotiations. Our firm can ensure that you recover damages for all of the losses that apply to your circumstances:
After a motorcycle accident, you are likely suffering from a number of potentially catastrophic injuries. When a biker is involved in an accident, he or she is at very high risk. Motorcycles provide less protection than other vehicles do, and even wearing a helmet doesn’t always prevent an injury.
If you’re a motorcyclist who’s been hurt in a crash caused by someone else, contact a Hempstead motorcycle accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. While recovering funds from the at-fault party is rarely simple, your attorney will determine how best to proceed while building the strongest case possible.
The key to building a strong personal injury case is figuring out exactly who is responsible for the accident. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will investigate, examine all the evidence, and obtain witness statements to make sure that you have named all responsible parties in your claim.
Our firm knows how insurance companies like to use stereotypes of reckless bikers to reduce the amount of compensation they must pay. Even if you’re the most cautious biker in the world, they won’t hesitate to use these stereotypes against you.
Your accident attorney will challenge these biases using facts, evidence, and a compelling argument. We want you to recover the damages you deserve.
Our lawyers understand the potential injuries you may be experiencing and how they’ll impact your life and finances, especially those like the following:
We empathize with our clients and will ensure that you recover the compensation you are due under the law. We want you to concentrate on getting your life back—not on fighting stereotypes that insurance companies perpetuate in the interest of their bottom line.
After your accident, you may be wondering what kind of compensation you are entitled to seek.
Listed below are some of the losses you can expect to recoup if they apply to your motorcycle accident:
Unlike insurance companies, we don’t view you as a claim to be settled. You and your suffering are real, and you deserve to be fully compensated for what the motorcycle crash has caused you. We’ll build a case the fully demonstrates all of your losses, putting you in a powerful negotiating position that will ultimately yield the most compensation possible.
Your Hempstead motorcycle accident lawyer will represent your concerns, making a convincing argument on your behalf.
