How You Can Help Your Case
Our team will handle all the legal aspects of your case, but there are two things you can do to help your case.
Follow Doctor’s Orders
Make sure that you comply with all of your doctor’s advice and directions. If you stop attending doctor’s appointments or disobey your doctor’s orders, this may weaken your claim for maximum monetary compensation.
Avoid Discussing Your Accident or Injuries with Strangers
After your accident, you may receive calls or visits from strangers who claim to be investigating your accident. These individuals may not have your best interests in mind. It is important that you speak with a lawyer before you make any statement to anyone who reaches out to you. Once you hire a lawyer, you should not give any statement to any stranger even if they say they are from an insurance company until you advise your lawyer first.
Be Aware of New York’s Injury Lawsuit Time Limit
New York has a time limit for filing injury lawsuits. If you fail to file your lawsuit within that time limit, the court may bar your right to receive money forever. You should contact the lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates immediately after your accident so that we protect your rights to fair and just compensation. Our team can help ensure you stay within the time limit and ensure the best result.
