Upper East Side Personal Injury Lawyer

The Upper East Side of New York City is known for its stately townhomes, high culture, upscale shopping, and fine dining. But even in the most impressive neighborhoods, life-changing accidents can occur in the blink of an eye.  

Whether you’re visiting Museum Mile on a beautiful spring day, or working as a sub-contractor on a luxury residential development, a sudden personal injury can lead to months if not years of medical bills, lost time from work, and other significant losses for individuals and their families.

When the accident is caused by another party’s negligence or reckless behavior, your emotional and financial recovery can become more challenging. That’s where the Upper East Side personal injury lawyers of Douglas & London come in. A personal injury lawyer at our firm will manage every aspect of your case so that you can focus on healing and rebuilding your life.

Don’t face the insurance companies alone

Insurance companies want to quickly resolve cases and pay out as little as possible for your injuries. When they push you to settle and/or discourage you from contacting an attorney, that is a sure sign that your rights are not being adequately protected.

You don’t have to face the big insurance companies alone. At Douglas & London, we have a long track record of success in standing up to deep-pocketed insurance companies and making sure our clients get the money they deserve, whether via settlement negotiations or at trial, if necessary. Since 2002, our dedicated attorneys have recovered $18 billion for our personal injury clients.

Fair compensation for your injuries

A dedicated Upper East Side personal injury attorney at our firm will build the strongest possible case for you by gathering evidence to expose the negligent party, consulting with our network of investigative experts, and working to get you the compensation you need to get back on your feet.

Depending on the extent of your injuries, we will fight to get compensation to cover not only past, current, and future medical bills, but also for:

  • Lost wages or complete loss of income
  • Property damage or loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Funeral arrangements and related expenses

Our lawyers also may be able to negotiate with medical providers to postpone payments for services rendered until your case is resolved, providing that extra peace-of-mind as you work to heal.

When to file your personal injury lawsuit

It’s never too soon to start the legal process. New York’s statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is three years – meaning that after this time period has lapsed, your rights to compensation may be forfeit.

While it may seem overwhelming to begin the claim process so soon after your accident, it is the most critical step to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.

Douglas and London offers free consultations to evaluate your case, set out a potential roadmap for filing a claim, and help you decide on the best course of action for you and your family. 

Most importantly, you won’t pay a dime unless we’re successful. Contact Douglas and London today and get connected with one of our friendly and capable Upper East Side personal injury attorneys.
