Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

What Can a Personal Injury or Medical Malpractice Lawyer Do for You?

There are many benefits to having a skilled personal injury attorney by your side after you’ve been in an accident:

  • Guidance - A personal injury lawyer can provide you with the help and advice you need to win your case. They will examine all of the facts, work to identify who is liable in an accident, and advise you on the best course of action.
  • Expertise - A personal injury lawyer will also help you understand complex legal matters so that you can better understand what needs to be done.
  • Advocacy - A personal injury attorney will represent you in court or negotiate settlements with the insurance company so that you receive fair compensation that covers all medical costs, property damage, lost wages, and any other losses resulting from the accident.

With help from our skilled NY personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers on your side, you are in a good position to win your case.

How Much Does a Personal Injury or Medical Malpractice Attorney Cost?

Fear of attorney fees should not prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve after an accident. That is why personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers in New York work off of a contingency fee rate. A contingency fee means that an attorney's costs will be paid as a percentage of the final recovery amount from your case, whether you win a settlement or jury verdict - “no recovery, no fee”.

The standard contingency fee in New York is 33%, but it can be less. There is also an option for a sliding scale contingency fee that has different rates for different portions of the recovery. When you call Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro, LLP, our attorneys can discuss our contingency fee options with you during your free consultation.
