Delivering Strong Results to Accident Victims
As you know if you’ve been hurt, serious injuries are expensive. Even if you have good health insurance, with copays and deductibles, you may be out a lot of money. And medical expenses aren’t the only costs that result from car accidents, truck crashes, falls and other accidents. Missed days at work, chronic pain, emotional trauma and other serious effects of injuries can take a severe toll on your overall financial, physical and mental well-being. The results of a serious injury can impact you and your family well into the future. Sometimes the impacts can last the rest of a person’s life.
Unfortunately, we can’t make your injuries go away. But our Buffalo personal injury lawyer can help you learn whether you have financial recourse. If someone else’s careless actions caused your injuries, you could get compensation through a legal claim. The money you might get to pay doctor bills and other costs can greatly reduce your financial stress. A lawsuit will also hold the responsible party accountable for their negligent act.
Don’t hesitate to call us so we can learn how we can help you when you’ve been injured. A personal injury lawyer from our firm can answer the many questions you probably have. Call us at (716) 854-0700.

How We Hold Accountable Those Responsible for Your Injury
How Our Personal Injury Lawyer Proves Fault for Negligent Injuries
If your injury was caused by another’s negligence, you have the right to file a claim against them. Who is held liable in your claim depends on how your injuries happened. Here are some examples of who may be held liable in different types of personal injury claims:
- Drivers whose carelessness behind the wheel causes crashes
- Trucking companies whose drivers cause commercial trucking wrecks
- Property owners who allow dangerous conditions to exist that cause slips and falls and other injury accidents
- Manufacturers of defective products that malfunction and hurt people
- Doctors and other healthcare providers who cause injuries during surgeries and other medical procedures
- Those responsible when construction site or workplace accidents are caused by others.
However, to be successful in a claim, negligence must be proven. That is where the help of our Buffalo personal injury lawyer is especially important. For three decades, our law firm has focused its efforts and resources on establishing fault and getting clients compensation for their injuries. We have the in-depth knowledge of the law needed to help you, too.
Steps Our Personal Injury Attorney in Buffalo Will Take to Establish Fault
When our personal injury attorney takes on your case, our team will:
- Investigate all the evidence related to the accident and your injuries. This can include police reports, medical reports, eyewitness statements, photographs and video from the accident scene and more.
- Identify expert witnesses to testify on your behalf. These individuals could include accident reconstruction experts, medical doctors or others.
- Negotiate with insurers of at-fault parties to get you a fair settlement offer.
- Advise you about going to trial to have a case decided before a judge or jury if the insurance company won’t fairly settle.
These are the basic steps involved. Within each are many smaller steps. We know the legal process can be complex and hard to understand. You can rely on us to work with you and explain complex legal concepts in understandable terms and to ensure that you know what will happen next in your case.
Compensation in Personal Injury Claims
How Much You Could Get Depends on Your Losses
When you’ve been injured through no fault of your own and are facing mounting bills, it’s natural to wonder how much you might get in a legal claim. Personal injury lawsuits are based on damages. Damages are all the losses that a person suffers after being injured. Here are examples of types of damages that may be awarded:
- Medical expenses, including doctor bills, hospital costs, physical therapy and other rehabilitation
- Payment for prescription and over-the-counter drugs, as well as medical devices and equipment
- Lost income for days missed at work
- Lost earning capacity if your work is limited in the future or you can’t work again due to injuries
- Compensation for pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement and other noneconomic damages
- Punitive damages meant to punish at-fault parties when their actions are especially bad.
Every case is different. The types of damages you can claim will depend on the details of your injuries. Once our personal injury lawyer learns about your situation, we can provide a possible value for your claim.
Deadlines for Filing Personal Injury Lawsuits
Don’t Let Time Run Out on You
New York has various time limits — called statutes of limitations, in legal terms — for filing injury claims. The time limit depends upon the type of injury you suffered. For example, in a car accident, slip-and-fall or product injury case, you generally have three years from the date of the crash to file suit. For medical malpractice, it’s two years and six months from the date of injury. Wrongful death cases are two years from the date of death.
There are exceptions to these time limits, though, so always speak directly with a personal injury attorney who can tell you what deadlines may apply in your unique case.
