Types of Injury Cases We Handle in White Plains

At Lever & Ecker, our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience representing clients in all types of personal injury cases.

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help Your Case Succeed

After an accident, we understand that physical injuries, emotional trauma, and financial loss may have forever changed your life. An attorney can pursue the compensation and damages you deserve after a negligent party harms you. We provide top-notch legal representation to resolve your claim as favorably as possible without compromising your legal rights. Of course, we can’t guarantee an outcome, but we will commit our time and resources to your case to give you the best possible chance of success.

To succeed in a personal injury claim, you must present evidence establishing a duty of care, a breach of that duty, causation, and quantifiable damages. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will work hard to establish and prove all these elements to pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries. 

We have the resources, experience, knowledge, and tools necessary to negotiate with insurance adjusters on your behalf so you don’t settle for less than you deserve. Insurance companies don’t play fair. We level the playing field. And we are always prepared to proceed to trial if the circumstances call for it.

How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in White Plains?

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s actions or negligence in White Plains, you have a limited time to file a lawsuit. It’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to ensure you comply with New York’s statutes of limitations for personal injury cases.

Statutes of limitations impose strict deadlines for filing suit after an accident or injury. Generally, the statute of limitations for personal injury in New York is three years from the date of the incident, though that deadline can vary – and, in fact, be far shorter – in certain situations. Most personal injury and product liability cases must be filed within three years, most medical malpractice cases must be filed within two and a half years, and most wrongful death cases must be filed within two years. Cases against municipalities generally must be filed within one year and 90 days, and a document called a Notice of Claim must generally be submitted within just 90 days after the subject incident.

A personal injury attorney can confirm the applicable deadline or deadlines to file your case and ensure you seek damages in a timely manner. If you miss the filing deadline, the court will likely dismiss your case, and you will forever lose the right to recover the compensation you deserve.
