Mamaroneck Personal Injury Lawyer
When you or a loved one are sidelined by an accident, the injury itself is just the start of what can be a long and complicated process. From medical treatment to filing claims to proceeding through the litigation process, there can be many steps between the injury and closure. Along the way, there is a good chance you will face resulting financial stresses.
New York residents are often entitled to compensation for their losses when the injury was caused by the negligence of another. The arduous process of obtaining compensation is not something you need to go through alone. The Mamaroneck personal injury lawyers of Douglas and London understand what you are going through, and are on call to help.
What constitutes a personal injury?
A person can be injured in countless ways, but what sets a “personal injury” apart is legal responsibility. If another person or business was careless or violated a safety standard, and that caused the incident leading to the injury, they may be liable.
Personal injury claims may stem from:
- Motor vehicle accidents, whether they involve cars, trucks, or other vehicles
- Premises liability claims like trip and fall, slip and fall, dog bites, or any number of incidents caused by hazards located on another’s property
- Defective products that are either designed or manufactured in an unsafe way, or lack necessary warnings of potential risks
- Defective medical devices and dangerous drugs that lead to serious side effects or additional injuries
- Medical malpractice, whether committed by doctors, nurses, or others who commit medical errors
Each type of injury requires specialized knowledge, so it is vital to choose a personal injury lawyer who has successfully handled cases like yours.
What an attorney brings to a case
The minutes, days, and weeks following an injury can determine the outcome of your case. Our Mamaroneck personal injury lawyers guide you through those critical moments.
Your attorney will counsel you on communications with insurance representatives and others who may contact you immediately after the accident. He or she will also gather crucial evidence, spot potential liability issues, and ensure you comply with reporting and filing deadlines.
Your attorney will also make sure you have legal grounds to bring a case. Not every accident is the result of someone else’s negligence. Determining whether someone else was at fault can be very technical, requiring familiarity of specific rules and regulations related to different areas of law. These matters are well outside common knowledge and an experienced attorney can be the factor that makes your case successful.
