Q: Can’t I handle this on my own? Is a lawyer really necessary?
A: In most occasions, yes. While many people believe that they can handle legal matters on their own, there are complexities that make it difficult to actually do so. With a legal professional on your side, you are free to focus on managing your injuries and putting your life back together instead of burying yourself in paperwork. An attorney also generally has better luck negotiating with insurance adjusters, representatives from hospitals and the like – if you attempt to do so yourself, you run the risk of being taken advantage of. Professionals understand the legal language you can sometimes come up against.
Q: Are your fees reasonable?
A: Due to the nature of the cases we accept, many times you can engage our services for a contingency fee. That means that instead of accepting payment up front, we do not charge unless we win your case. Some cases may not be eligible for such an arrangement, but if your case cannot be taken on a contingency basis, we will work out a reasonable payment schedule with you.
Q: If I hire an attorney from your firm, what kind of service will I receive?
A: If you hire an attorney from the New York Lawyers, you will get hands-on service immediately, and from a legal professional. While our support staff do excellent work, our clients need information and assistance from a legal professional, and we will never hand your case to someone unfamiliar. We want our clients to feel like they have good relationships with their attorneys, and that means we have to put the work in.
Q: Why is it so important to get an attorney quickly?
A: Because often, every day that goes by means another day without a complete picture of what occurred. A client may be very intelligent, but most have not been trained in exactly what to do in the bulk of these situations – for example, many individuals may not be aware of the need to take pictures to preserve an exact replica of the scene. Our attorneys at the New York Lawyers stay up-to-date on current events in the legal world, so we always have the best information possible at hand to help you win your case.
Q: Why choose the New York Lawyers?
A: One of the most appealing things many people tell us about our firm is that we are smaller than most. This means we can offer far more personalized service than larger firms. It also means that the names at our firm will always be the people who are overseeing your case. You will not have to wade through layers of bureaucracy to get to our attorneys. We will be there for you. We can never guarantee that a case will go a certain way, but the New York Lawyers will always do our very best to put you in a position where you will have a favorable outcome.
