Auto Accident Questions

That’s a very common question. Call me. Let me get all the facts and all the circumstances. And then, together, we’ll be able to determine what your case is worth. I assure you that you will get top dollar with my firm.
Do Accident Cases Usually Settle Without Going to Court?
Over 90% of my firm’s cases settle without going to court because we treat every case as if it is going to court. The threat of going to court is basically what settles these cases for the big dollar. And we will go if they don’t play ball with us. When they do play ball with us, we make sure that you get every penny you deserve.
Do You Get Good Results for Your Clients?
We must! We’ve been doing this for over 25 years. I’ve represented clients, I’ve represented their kids, I’ve represented their grandkids, I’ve represented their distant relatives. I don’t think they’d keep coming back to my firm if I wasn’t getting them top dollar.
What Do I Have To Do After I Hire You?
It’s our job to make this thing easy for you. We handle everything. The only thing you have to do is work on getting yourself better.
How Long Does it Take to Settle a Case?
I get paid when you get paid, so I want this done quick. However, we have to wait until you’re done going to the doctor so I can put a fair value on your case. And then it goes pretty quick.
How Much Does it Cost?
I don’t cost you anything. My fee is based upon your recovery, and in New York state it’s 1/3 of your recovery. But if I don’t get you anything, you don’t owe me anything.
Workers’ Comp Questions
What Should I Know About Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ comp laws can be tricky. There’s a lot of rules and a lot of regulations that you need to know. If you don’t know the ins and outs of workers’ comp law, you’re not going to get what you deserve. You need an advocate. You need someone to make sure you are getting what is truly yours.
Can I Get Fired for Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
No, that’s illegal. It’s against the law to fire an employee because he files a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation is there to benefit both the employer and the employee, especially the injured employee.
What Kind of Experience Do You Have With Workers’ Compensation?
I have several lawyers right now who are handling hundreds of workers’ compensation claims. They know the law inside and out, it’s the only thing they do, it’s what they specialize in. They’re the ones that answer your questions when you call. So look, if you’ve been hurt on the job, just contact us. We have the people and the power to take care of everything.
Nursing Home Questions
I Believe My Loved One Has Been Abused… What Should I Do?
Well, you can start by contacting me. We may have to get the department of health involved, we may even get the police involved. But I’ll do my investigation first, and I’ll get you some answers.
What are the Laws Protecting My Loved One?
Well, the state laws and federal laws are basically the same. We all have the right to a dignified existence. Whether you’re confined to a nursing home or not, you’re entitled to a dignified existence and to live a healthy and happy life. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes live up to that standard. And that’s where we come in. We’re trying to hold these places accountable for future generations, for the people that are still in there, and for our own loved ones.
What Qualifies as Neglect or Abuse?
Well, you know it when you see it. If you’re suspecting it, give me a call. You walk in and you visit and you see these bruises or someone who looks like they are not in the right frame of mind, a lot of times it’s due to dehydration. These are things that all of us are entitled to: water, food, a dignified existence, and a safe environment.
Why are neglect & abuse so common at nursing homes?
I blame it on greed. These places are making money hand over fist and they’re not giving it back to the facility. These people are overworked, underpaid, and the burnout rate is crazy. The fact that a person is working there one day doesn’t mean they’re going to be there the next time you walk in. And the fact that there’s 10 people working one day doesn’t mean there won’t be two the next time you walk in the door. We call it profit over people. If these nursing homes are holding their profit above the safety of your people, we want to know about it and we’ll take care of it.
