We Know All the Relevant Laws Inside and Out

We Know All the Relevant Laws Inside and Out

The biggest advantage of hiring Queens personal injury attorneys is that we know all of the relevant laws inside and out. Whether you have a slip and fall at work, are in a car accident, or fall on private property, we know all of the relevant laws.

Without our assistance, you would have to start from scratch and learn about the applicable laws before you could even start filing a claim or suit.

Just some of the relevant laws that our team is familiar with include: 

We Customize Our Approach for Every Client 

Of course, we also adapt those past strategies and ideas to your case. Any reputable lawyer knows that despite similarities, no two cases are identical. A long list of factors influences every lawsuit.

This is where our extensive experience comes in handy. Our team can pull insights gleaned from multiple cases that shared elements with yours. The result is the ability to craft the perfect argument to help you receive the compensation you are owed. 

Understanding How Small Changes Can Affect Your Case

Understanding How Small Changes Can Affect Your Case

It is crucial that you select a lawyer like Abrams & Associates, P.C. that takes an individualized approach. This is because even a seemingly small factor can affect the outcome. 

An Example of Private Property 

For example, take a scenario where you slip and fall while walking on private property. One of the most important factors will be whether you had consent or implied consent from the property owner to be on the property.

This is straightforward in some cases, but in others, you need our experts to help establish that you were legally there as a visitor or guest.

This is important because if you trespassed on the property, your entire case might fall apart. The law does not require property owners to follow a duty of care for their property unless you are invited (or have an implied invitation).

There are also exclusions for recreational activities such as snowmobiling and hiking. Simply put, if your presence on the property is under one of these exclusions, it can be much more challenging to make your case.

Of course, Abrams Law’s experience gives you a solid head start. 

An Example From the Comparative Fault Law

Another example of how a small difference in your situation can significantly impact comes from the comparative fault law. The comparative negligence law in New York means that your compensation will depend somewhat on who is to blame for the injury or accident.

This means that the court will look at the evidence to determine the blame each party carries. You are then only compensated for the proportion of damages you were not responsible for.

For example, if your total losses are $50,000 and you were 10% liable for the incident, you would only receive 90% of $50,000. This would be $45,000. 

It is easy to see the importance of small details in this law. Every decision you make at the time of the incident can affect your compensation.

This is also an example of why it is so important to have a reliable, experienced lawyer. Abrams & Associates, P.C. always works in your best interests to minimize your percentage of fault, therefore maximizing your compensation. 

We Work to Get You Maximum Compensation

We Work to Get You Maximum Compensation

Throughout all of our services as a Queens personal injury attorney, we do our best to ensure accident victims receive fair compensation. What is fair will vary based on your situation, including the medical expenses and time off work.

Just some of the damages that our team will assess and fight for include: 

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced work capacity 
  • Mental health therapies and counseling
  • Pain and suffering 

Our experience as a personal injury lawyer in Queens allows us to assess each of these damages accurately. We also have a network of resources to help us with the assessment when necessary. 

Settlement Out of Court

After assessing your damages, we do our best to negotiate with the other party or insurance company. Whenever possible we suggest this as a first step, as going to court for a personal injury claim can prolong the process and increase the final costs.

Nonetheless, when negotiation is unworkable, or we cannot get you a fair offer, our team will gladly represent you in court. In fact, we can even offer guidance to help you decide whether a settlement offer is fair or you would be better off taking the claim to court. 

We Keep You Informed Throughout the Process

PI Lawyers Keep You Informed Throughout the Process

We understand that some of the legal terms and processes that average Queens injury attorneys use on a regular basis can be confusing. They are second nature to us due to our vast experience and training, but we don’t want you to be left in the dark. 

As such, as we offer legal advice and provide other services, we will gladly take the time to explain various aspects of the law to you. We do our best to minimize our use of legal jargon in conversations with clients.

But for those times that it slips in or is unavoidable, we encourage you to ask for clarification. 

This is crucial because we don’t want to resolve your issue for you. We also want you to understand what we did and why it made sense in regard to the law. 

…and Keep You Updated

Our dedication to ensuring you understand the entire process also extends to keeping you informed. When deadlines are approaching or we get an update on your case, we will let you know. 

We also keep the lines of communication open at Abrams & Associates, P.C. If there hasn’t been an update in a while and you want to know the status of your case, we encourage you to contact us.

We are available over the phone, via live chat, or by email. This is because we know that you are already dealing with the physical and mental effects of the personal injury that brought you to our firm.

We don’t want to add more stress and uncertainty to your plate.
