One of the most common questions I get in my office is “How much is my case worth?”
Every case has a different value depending upon the type of injuries suffered, the length and extent of your disability and whether or not you have any permanent injury. The reality is that we, as attorneys, cannot turn back the hands of time and put you back together again as if your injury or accident had never happened.
Even poor Humpty Dumpty could not be put back together again by all the kings horses and all the kings men.
Our clients come to us with injuries and disabilities seeking our help and guidance. The best that we can do to help them is to obtain full and fair compensation for the injuries that they suffered because of someone else's wrongdoing or carelessness. Our sense of justice and our law requires that injured victims be compensated for the harm they have suffered through no fault of their own.
As you explore the information contained on my website you will find many articles, free reports and videos that explain the different elements of compensation that you can obtain in an accident case, a medical malpractice case and a wrongful death case here in New York.
The success stories that you see here on this page represent a sizable portion of successes I've been able to achieve for my clients over the years. Some success stories are not included here since we are restricted from disclosing information about those cases.
You must read this disclaimer
By law, we are required to tell you that past results do not guarantee future results. It seems like common sense, right? However, there are injured victims who will read the success stories on this page and believe they have a similar type of case and for one reason or another believe that their case is worth the same or more in value. Let me dispel any such thought. As I mentioned above, every case is different. Your case may be worth more than your neighbor who had a similar injury. Then again, your case may be worth considerably less than someone you know with a similar injury. There many different factors that go into evaluating and ultimately obtaining a successful result.
An attorney's experience in handling your type of case is only one factor. Although it would be wonderful for an attorney to guarantee a particular outcome or result, the reality is that such a feat is impossible and unrealistic. For a true evaluation of the value of your particular matter, you need to speak with an experienced attorney who handles the type of case that you have. A thorough, detailed and full investigation must be done to analyze all the factors necessary to determine whether you have a valid and meritorious case. The full extent of your injuries and disability may not be known until much later in time. Or, you may still be under the care of physicians and require ongoing medical care.
If you suffered lost wages and expect to continue into the future losing income, that will also play a significant part in the value of your case, among many others. Read the results and success stories on this page with an understanding that for these injured victims, this the compensation I have been able to obtain for them.
