In New York we have a no fault law. So your own insurance company or the care that you’re sitting in will be responsible to pay for your medical expenses and most probably your lost earning, or the refund for the accident.

Transcript:

If you get bitten by a dog, there are some laws that pertain to vicious dog propensities. But you can recover for a serious dog bite if that dog had vicious propensities in the past.

Transcript:

My advice is after an accident, if you get a call from any insurance company, you should hesitate to speak to them, even your own. They’re never you best friend. So seek out your attorney’s advice, hopefully the Kohn Law Firm, and we’ll advise you how to proceed.

Transcript:

[Narrator] Meet Maria, Dwayne, and Matt. While they have never met, they all have one thing in common. They all have recently suffered a serious injury, and need the assistance of a lawyer. Maria was driving home from work last week when her car was hit by a truck that ran a red light. She spent three days in the hospital, and will have to endure months of physical therapy. Dwayne was out shopping with his family. One of the stores’ freezers was malfunctioning, and leaking water onto the floor. Dwayne didn’t see the puddle, slipped, and landed straight on his back. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance, where tests revealed he has a broken hip. Matt is a construction worker. He was working from a scaffold when one of its support wires broke. When the platform violently jarred to one side, Matt’s body was slammed up against the railing. X-ray results showed his arm is broken in two places, and he will need surgery.

Transcript:

In most cases in New York, the statute of limitations is three years to bring your action for a personal injury claim. My suggestion is don’t wait the three years. There are things that you need to do immediately after the accident to make sure that your claim is going to be valid and that you’ll have something to pursue.

Transcript:

The amount of time it takes to settle a case varies from case to case. In Bronx County, for instance, it usually takes three to five years to get a case to trial. But we do, all throughout the case, continue to try to settle the case, as we go forward and move towards trial.

Transcript:

When it’s time for you to deposition, we’ll spend the time with you at Kohn Law Firm to prep you, let you know what kind of questions you’re likely to be asked so that way you’re comfortable when you go into the deposition. And one of our attorneys will be with you when you take your deposition.

Transcript:

I think it’s always important for you to see a doctor after the accident. You wanna make sure that physically, you’re okay and also you wanna preserve any right that you have to bring the claim later on.

Transcript:

If you retain an attorney for your personal injury case, most likely you will have to go to court. Most cases don’t settle the cases early on in the litigation anymore. So the case will have to be filed with the court and there will some discovery including maybe depositions, although we prepare every case at the Kohn Law Firm to go to trial so that way we can maximize any settlement if your case settles outside of trial.

Transcript:

If the other driver’s uninsured in the accident, you should do almost the same thing that you would do in any other type of car accident, make sure you call the police. The police will take care of it if there’s an arrest that needs to be made or any other information that you need to get before you leave the scene of the accident.

Transcript:

When you’re involved in an auto accident you should make sure that everyone is secure first. If you’re okay you should get out of the car, take pictures if you can, make sure you call the police, be seen by the ambulance, be taken to the hospital, give your statement to the police, check around see if there are any witnesses, get names and addresses of any witnesses that may be there, and see if you can get them to wait for the police to come so their statement gets memorialized on the police report.

Transcript:

When you’re involved in a premise liability claim, you can collect for your pain and suffering and also possibly economic damage if you’re out of work for an extended period of time.

Transcript:

All attorneys in New York charge a contingency fee, which means that you don’t pay unless you recover. So it’s a 1/3 contingency fee.

Transcript:

Discovery is the method by which the parties exchange information during the court process. So there’s a period of written discovery, where we answer questions, and then there’ll be depositions, where you give verbal testimony, and finally there’ll be a independent medical exam after the depositions, a physical exam before the doctor that’s hired by the insurance company.

Transcript:

Generally speaking you have three years to file a personal injury claim. You probably don’t want to wait that long because you want to preserve other evidence in the case and move your case forward prior to the three year period. And there are differences in statute of limitations if a municipality’s involved. So you wanna come speak to someone at the Kohn Law Firm, so that way we can make sure that we preserve your rights.

Transcript:

In a premise liability claim, we have to prove that the defendant did something wrong, that they were somehow negligent that caused you to slip and fall and caused you injuries.

Transcript:

When you have a personal injury claim, you can recover for your pain and suffering. Those will mostly be your damages, but there’s also the opportunity, if you’re out of work for an extended period of time, to collect economic damages, as well.

Transcript:

Premise liability cases are generally slip and fall cases. Sometimes they involve snow and ice, sometimes raised sidewalks, broken sidewalks. Any type of claim where you trip or there’s some type of hazard in the road that you fall on, that would be considered a premise liability case.
