Mott Haven Personal Injury Lawyer

When you drive, cross the street, or see your doctor, you trust those around you to care for your safety. Unfortunately, many people breach this trust and cause harm to those around them. If you suffered injuries due to someone else’s negligence, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure about how to secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Our experienced lawyers at Lever & Ecker, PLLC, can represent you throughout the entire process and use our skills and knowledge to pursue and secure a successful outcome.

Our professional team has over 65 years of combined legal experience advocating for New Yorkers’ rights with our unmatched legal services and innovative solutions.

We also provide consistent and open communication so you never feel alone and fully understand your legal options and the decisions you have to make to secure full compensation.

What Types of Cases Do Mott Haven Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?

After sustaining a personal injury, you may not know if a lawyer can take on your claim. At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, we have experience working on all types of personal injury claims, including, just by way of example:

  • Car accidents
  • Construction (labor law) and other workplace accidents
  • Accidents from defective conditions on sidewalks, buildings, etc. (premises liability)
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Rideshare accidents
  • Product liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect

Regardless of the type of accident and the details of your claim, our dedicated lawyers can fiercely advocate for you at all times. With our balance of compassion and dedication, we get to the heart of your case. We understand the complicated nature of personal injury claims, so we use our extensive knowledge of state law and refined skills to negotiate with insurance companies and even take your case to trial if necessary. 

Potentially Recoverable Damages for New York Personal Injury Claims

Personal injuries can take serious physical, emotional, and financial tolls on your life, all of which deserve recognition. Our hardworking lawyers significantly improve your likelihood of receiving full compensation for these losses, which may include:

  • Pain and suffering (past and future)
  • Lost wages and income (past and future)
  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Property damage
  • Emotional distress
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Ambulance ride fees
  • Prescription medications
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Loss of ability to work
  • Punitive damages

When awarding damages in personal injury claims, New York uses a pure comparative negligence system. This means that the jury determines each party’s percentage of the responsibility for the accident, which is then used to calculate damages. For example, if you are found by the jury to be 15% at fault for the accident, while the defendant is found 85% at fault, and your claim is worth $100,000, your damages will be reduced by 15%, and you will be awarded $85,000. While this allows you to collect compensation even if you were partially at fault, insurance companies may try to assign you an unfair fault percentage. We fight tirelessly to ensure that does not happen so we can recover for you the full compensation you deserve.

Why Should You Hire a Lawyer to Handle Your Mott Haven Personal Injury Claim?

While you can attempt to file your claim on your own, you risk getting taken advantage of by the insurance companies and being offered far less compensation than your case is actually worth. Hiring a lawyer gives you the peace of mind that your case is in highly capable hands. We handle all aspects of your claim, including:

  • Thoroughly investigating the accident
  • Collecting and analyzing evidence, like medical reports and video footage
  • Identifying the liable (responsible) party or parties
  • Calculating your claim’s worth 
  • Filing your claim properly by commencing your lawsuit in court 
  • Utilizing resources like accident reconstruction and traffic analysis experts
  • Answering all your legal questions
  • Negotiating with insurance companies
  • Taking your case to trial if necessary

According to New York law, personal injury victims typically have three years to file their cases (although this deadline may be far shorter in certain circumstances, particularly those involving municipal entities). While this may seem like a long time, your injuries and other potential delays can make it challenging to meet this deadline on your own. Our skilled and effective lawyers can file your claim on time, so you can take full advantage of your opportunity to fight for your rights.
