FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The short answer is: You do not and cannot necessarily know on your own if you have a personal injury case.
You should contact the Syracuse personal injury lawyers at Catalano Law and set up a free consultation. There are many factors to accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles that can mean the difference between a strong case and no case at all. Circumstances surrounding slip and falls, worksite accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and prescription drug harm are also all dependent on the specific facts.
In many situations, you may have a case if someone acted carelessly or violated existing laws and regulations. However, this standard is more complex than it sounds. Catalano Law has handled hundreds of cases and knows the specific things to look for in each practice area that can build the strongest case and put you on the path to the most just compensation.
You are under no obligation to hire a personal injury lawyer if you’re considering filing a claim. However, the personal injury claims process can be complex, and you’ll be facing insurance companies and attorneys who know the law and the process thoroughly. Navigating these challenges with no prior experience can be incredibly challenging, especially when you’re dealing with serious injuries.
We strongly suggest you consider seeking legal help. You can focus on your health and recovery while your attorney handles your claim on your behalf. If you’re debating whether or not to hire an attorney, contact our Syracuse personal injury lawyers for a free, no-obligation case review.
Catalano Law does not collect any fees unless we win your case or successfully settle and get compensation for you. This is called a contingency fee agreement.
Such an arrangement means that you can retain high-powered lawyers to help you stand up to the experienced legal representation that corporate entities and insurance companies have at their disposal. By offering our services on a contingency basis, there are little to no charges a client has to pay until the case is over.
Three years is the statute of limitations, the time you have to file a lawsuit, for most personal injury cases in New York State. That said, the facts and details of such cases matter greatly, and it is important to get documentation and evidence of them as soon as possible.
Yes, our personal injury lawyers can definitely help you. Many personal injury and accident claims never go to court. An experienced attorney will typically build a case strong enough to prove your claim to the other party’s insurance company.
That means we will typically resolve your case with the insurance company, not a court of law. At that point, we will be able to settle your case and get both justice and fair compensation for your injury or accident.
Catalano Law Helps people get the compensation they deserve. If you need help, we will evaluate your case, explain your legal options, and recommend next steps for no cost whatsoever.
