How to File a Personal Injury Claim in New York

Filing a personal injury claim can help you get more money, be easier and less stressful with a lawyer.

Explanation from a New York City Injury Lawyer

If you have recently suffered injuries in an accident in the New York City area, now is not the time to act indecisively and hesitantly. You are dealing with matters of your health and your future, which should take ultimate priority in your life. After suffering any degree of injury, the legal team at Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., strongly advises you to see your doctor or make a visit to the emergency room. This will be the first step required to file your personal injury claim.

Once you have visited your doctor, you should request a copy of the medical records and expenses. You will then need to hire a New York City personal injury attorney who is capable of reviewing your case and helping you file a personal injury claim. Choosing a personal injury lawyer may be a difficult decision, but you can use this checklist to ensure that you hire a qualified team. Your attorney should have years of experience as a trial attorney with an impressive track record and the ability to provide personalized attention to your case.

After you have made the decision to hire a trusting personal injury lawyer, you will then need to give all the information from your accident, including medical records, to your attorney. From here, your attorney will work tirelessly to comb through the evidence and details of the accident to determine if you are eligible for compensation, and if so, how much.

At Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., our legal team takes the time to thoroughly investigate each claim to ensure that the best possible result can occur. We will collect evidence while you rest and relax, ensuring that a full recovery is reached in a reasonable amount of time. After we have enough evidence, we will bring our case to the insurance company that has likely been pestering you with questions and possible claims. It is important that you do not speak with these insurance agents, as they may trick you into accepting a settlement that will not cover the extent of the damages.

We will do the fighting on your behalf. Over the years, we have successfully secured over $200 million in settlements and verdicts for our clients who are facing personal injuries from all types of accidents, including car accidents, medical malpractice, premises liability (slip and fall) cases, and much more.
