    Worried About Attorney Fees? Our Newburgh Law Firm Works on a Contingency Basis


    The financial hardship resulting from a serious accident is distressing for many injury victims and their families. If you’re worried about paying for legal representation, you should know that our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay nothing unless we obtain compensation for you.

    Our contingency fee structure allows us to ease your economic burden as we pursue the necessary support on your behalf.

    Proving Fault to Win Your Personal Injury Case

    Obtaining rightful compensation after being injured in an accident requires you to first establish negligence and liability. We have a proven step-by-step process for demonstrating the at-fault party's negligence.

    Investigating Thoroughly

    We’ll start by extensively examining the accident scene, reviewing critical documentation like medical reports and police filings, interviewing witnesses, and working with specialists to pinpoint possible causes and oversights. Our team will leave no stone unturned in building evidence around negligence.

    Identifying Liable Parties

    Whether an individual, corporation, municipality, contractor, property owner, or other entity caused the accident through negligent behavior, our lawyers will name all appropriate parties so you can recover full and fair remuneration.

    Litigating Skillfully When Necessary

    If a pre-trial settlement offer from the at-fault party of their insurer doesn’t adequately cover the gravity of your losses and suffering, we’ll prepare strong arguments for court. Our accomplished attorneys aren’t afraid to bring litigation against even the most formidable opponents.

    Full Coverage: All Potential Damages Our Lawyers Will Pursue

    Suffering harm in an accident resulting from negligence often leads to ponderous financial burdens. As your dedicated legal advocates, our Newburgh personal injury attorneys will pursue every possible avenue of monetary restoration under the law to alleviate this financial stress. Some of the types of damages we routinely secure for our injured clients include:

    • Medical Expenses: All past and future medical bills, treatment costs, and hospitalizations related to the accident.
    • Lost Income: Salary, benefits, and commission losses from missing work due to injury or recovery.
    • Loss of Future Earning Capacity: Compensation for permanent disability that limits future earnings.
    • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Compensation for your accident’s impact on your relationships and inability to participate in activities you once enjoyed.
    • Wrongful Death Damages: Financial recourse for families who lose a loved one.
    • Punitive Damages: Special damages awarded when the responsible party’s behavior is judged to be particularly egregious or reckless.

    With a deep understanding of New York's personal injury laws, our lawyers know how to build ironclad arguments that encompass every applicable damage category, enabling our clients to move forward with financial security and assurance.

    Time Is of the Essence for Newburgh Accident Injury Cases

    Under New York law, strict statutes of limitations impose deadlines dictating how long accident victims have to file lawsuits. For instance, in most personal injury cases, claims must be formally made within three years of the date the injury occurred.

    It’s imperative to partner with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so they can set about investigating, building your case, negotiating settlements, and preparing litigation before time expires.

    Other advantages of promptly seeking legal help after an injury include:

    • Collecting fresher evidence and eyewitness testimony;
    • Getting medical care and treatment plans started sooner;
    • Notifying relevant insurance providers right away;
    • Avoiding claims of preexisting conditions;
    • Establishing legal rights for current and future losses.

    The sooner you get your case started, the better your chances of recovering fair and adequate compensation.

    Determining the Potential Value of Your Injury Claim

    Injury victims rightly want to understand the prospective value of their cases from the outset. Our team conducts in-depth assessments weighing various factors to estimate case value and help clients set appropriate expectations.

    Elements of your case that could impact your compensation include:

    • Cost of medical treatments, lost wages from missed work, and other quantified losses;
    • Expected future medical expenses and income interruptions;
    • Degree and duration of physical pain and emotional suffering;
    • Extent and permanence of disability and physical impairment;
    • Availability of defendant assets and insurance coverage;
    • Location and reputations of courts if litigation becomes necessary;
    • Reliability of eyewitness testimony to establish liability.

    While monetary recovery projections aren’t definitive without full legal proceedings, our Newburgh personal injury law firm will analyze the specifics of your case to provide realistic value estimates with a focus on transparency.

    How Long Does It Generally Take to Finalize an Injury Settlement in Newburgh?

    We understand that those who have suffered harm want to claim their entitled compensation and move forward as quickly as possible. However, securing a fair award takes patience and persistence. While every case is unique, you can expect your claim to reflect the following average timelines when you retain our services.

    6–9 Months for Straightforward Settlements

    Cases with clearly identifiable at-fault parties and limited treatment needs may settle more promptly. When you hire us, we’ll immediately send demand letters to the relevant insurers to get the process started.

    1–2 Years If Litigation Is Required

    Contested cases with extensive evidence-gathering demands, lengthy treatments, or complex legal arguments can proceed to trial when beneficial. This may extend the timeline closer to one year or beyond.

    3–6 Years for Especially Complex Claims

    A minority of cases involving specialized medical proof, multiple responsible parties, the coordination of numerous experts, appeals, or other variables may require three years or more to reach ultimate closure.

    While we can’t control how quickly the opposing counsel or courts will move, our Newburgh personal injury lawyers employ strategies to manage cases efficiently at every phase. We’ll always be transparent about the variables that may impact the timeframe of your case.
