Accident & Personal Injury: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
People who suffer serious injuries after an accident often have a lot of questions. If you or a loved one has been injured because of someone else’s negligence, we can answer your questions and help you get the medical care and financial compensation you need and deserve.
Below are answers to questions we often hear at The Law Office of Abraham Jaros.
We have been helping injured New Yorkers for over forty (40) years.
Why Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
The insurance companies have lawyers working for them and so should you. There is no cost to you to hiring our law firm as we work on a contingency fee basis, which means if you don’t receive compensation for your injuries, you pay no legal fees.
It is important to understand that insurance companies are in business to make money – not to pay you all the compensation you are owed. At the Law Office of Abraham Jaros, we have decades of experience in successfully representing injured New Yorkers and people visiting New York. We prepare your personal injury case to help you get all the medical care you need, to recover your lost and future wages and maximize your compensation for your injuries.
Before you accept any insurance company’s settlement offer, you should talk to our personal injury attorneys. We can help you decide whether the offer is fair, and we can help you get all the compensation you deserve for your recovery. You are much more likely to get full and fair compensation if the insurance company knows that we are fighting for you.
What Types of Compensation Are Available in a Personal Injury Claim?
Generally, victims of personal injury can receive compensation for their losses, including both for the past and for the future:
- Medical expenses resulting from the injury
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost income due to inability to work
