Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Common Personal Injury Questions

What Are the Rights of Illegal Immigrants to Bring Personal Injury Lawsuits? Illegal immigrants in New York do not have to worry if they are injured. First of all, city hospitals are obligated under the law to treat everyone, regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. They will not alert INS or send illegal immigrants home. Additionally, the courts of New York are available to injured immigrants. The issue of immigration status cannot legally prohibit the commencement of a lawsuit or cause anyone to be deported. Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP encourages all people, legal and illegal immigrants alike, to contact us if they feel that they have been seriously injured due to the negligence of another individual or entity.

Do I Have a Case? That depends. There are two distinct parts to a personal injury case: Liability (Whose fault was the accident? Was the injured party also at fault?) and damages (the injuries and resulting disability, the plaintiff’s suffering and economic loss). If you have both a clear liability picture and serious injuries, then you will probably have a case.

How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth? Law is not an exact science. Any accident lawyer that tells a prospective client a dollar amount at their initial meeting is both unprofessional and suspect. Evaluation is always complex and includes things like the nature of liability, the extent and severity of injuries, economic loss, and insurance coverage. It could take several years before all those factors are clearly outlined and an accurate dollar value is determined.

Will My Accident Case Settle? Well over 90% of all injury cases settle. At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP, we prepare each personal injury case as if it were going to trial. That way, if it does not settle, we are prepared. If it does settle, we will generally get you more money, because we have done our due diligence.
