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 win in a legal claim. While our personal injury lawyer can’t guarantee that you will win a certain amount in your claim, after we meet with you, we can try to give you a potential range of award amounts that may fit your case.

Judgment amounts depend in large part on the losses that a person suffers after another party causes an accident that leads to injuries. Victims who have a greater level of loss typically will be eligible to win a higher award amount. If you will miss months of work or if you have a disabling injury from which you can never recover, you could be in line for a seven- or eight-figure settlement.

Here are examples of the types of damages that you could win:

  • Medical expenses, including doctor bills, hospital costs, physical therapy costs, and other rehabilitation costs
  • Payment for prescription and over-the-counter drugs, as well as for medical devices and equipment
  • Lost income for days missed at work
  • Lost earning capacity if you have a limited ability to work in the future or if 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 reckless

Every case is different. The types of damages you can claim will depend on the particular details of your case and on the severity of your injuries. If you will experience a significant reduction in your quality of life related to your injuries, a larger settlement is possible. Once our personal injury lawyer learns about your situation, we can estimate a possible value for your claim.

Our Personal Injury Attorney in Buffalo Will Stand By Your Side From Start to Finish

Sometimes when people suffer injuries in an accident, they don’t know where to turn. Many people feel lost and alone. If they believe the accident wasn’t their fault, it only adds to the frustration they feel. Don’t take on an injury case by yourself. If you believe your injuries resulted from the negligent actions of another person or party, let us help you present facts that prove this negligence.

Our personal injury lawyers understand how to investigate injury accidents to prove liability. Once we learn all the circumstances of your injuries, we will advise you whether we believe you have a legal claim against a negligent party. If you choose to hire us, we won’t back down in working to achieve compensation to pay for your medical costs and other damages.

For a free review of your case, call Feroleto Law at 716-854-0700 today. We will be ready to begin working on your case as soon as you choose to hire us.


At Feroleto Law, we take on personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means we have a no-fee guarantee, where, if we agree to take on your case and don’t win compensation for you, there is no legal fee. Costs for any expenses we pay in advance for our clients may or may not be waived, depending on the disbursement of final compensation. We receive our legal fee only when we win a settlement or an award for you. In the end, our legal fee comes from a percentage of this final settlement.


To be successful in a claim, we must prove negligence and fault on the part of the other party. The nearly 40 years of experience of our Buffalo personal injury lawyer are especially important here. Our law firm always follows the principal of keeping its initial focus, efforts, and resources on establishing fault. Without first establishing fault, the rest of the case falls apart. This level of dedication helps us win the compensation that clients need for their injuries. We have an in-depth knowledge of the law that helps us work toward the best possible outcome.


If your injury resulted from another party’s negligence, you have the right to file a claim. Who is liable in your claim depends on how your injuries happened. Here are some examples of who may be liable in different types of personal injury claims.

  • Drivers whose carelessness behind the wheel causes crashes
  • Trucking companies whose drivers behave recklessly and cause commercial trucking accidents
  • 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 occur.


Buffalo 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, a slip-and-fall accident, or a product injury case, you generally have three years from the date of the incident to file a claim. For medical malpractice, it’s two years and six months from the date of injury. In wrongful death cases, the deadline is two years from the date of death. There are exceptions to these time limits, though. Our personal injury lawyer can help you determine what kinds of deadlines apply in your unique case.


After you suffer an injury because of the negligence of another party, you have the right to make a claim. You may want to start by hiring our personal injury attorney in Buffalo before notifying the insurance company about the claim you are filing for your injuries. After we investigate what happened in your accident, we then will present those facts to the insurance company and begin negotiating for a settlement. Many personal injury cases end with a negotiated settlement. However, if we cannot reach a settlement, we can take the case to a trial where a judge or jury will determine whether you win a settlement and how much you win.


Nothing in Buffalo state statutes requires victims in personal injury cases to hire representation. Victims have the right to try to win an award on their own. However, many victims find that insurance companies do not take their claims as seriously when the victims are representing themselves. Our personal injury lawyers have experience working through the legal system in personal injury cases. We can represent you at every step along the way, always working toward the outcome you want to see.
