Why should I not just settle with an insurance company?
Insurance companies have proven time and again that their focus is on profits, not people. When you take a personal injury claim to an insurance company, they will do everything possible to minimize or deny you a settlement. Worse still, if you accept an insurance settlement, you waive your right to file for compensation through a lawsuit. You deserve justice. You deserve full compensation. Personal injury attorney Charles Rock can help ensure you get every penny you are due.
What can I do if I was partially responsible for my accident?
New York is a pure comparative negligence state. This means that each party’s actions are taken into account in personal injury claims. The courts will then determine the percentage of blame and award damages accordingly.
It is important to remember that you should not attempt to determine negligence at the time of the accident. Never admit fault at the scene of your accident or at any point following. Charles N. Rock will conduct an investigation into your accident, determine liability and build a strong case on your behalf to seek the largest compensation possible.
Will my personal injury lawsuit go to trial?
It is impossible to say if your personal injury lawsuit will need to go to trial. If it is possible to secure fair compensation in a settlement before a trial, no further action will be required. Charles Rock is prepared to take your case as far as necessary, fighting tooth and nail to ensure you are granted every penny you deserve.
Is there a statute of limitations for personal injury?
In New York State, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is three years. Personal injuries caused by medical malpractice is limited to two years six months.
