Personal Injury

Will I have to go to court?

Most personal injury cases are settled without ever going to court. However, many personal injury lawyers take cases intending to dispose of them quickly with out-of-court settlements. At David Horowitz, PC, our attorneys go the extra mile when necessary. If an insurance company or another party’s lawyer is offering an unfair or insufficient settlement, we will go to court to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

What is premises liability?

Premises liability law holds negligent landowners liable for injuries suffered by other people on their property. It can include accidents that take place in the owner’s home, the owner’s property, or while a person is at another’s place of business. Our Manhattan personal injury lawyers often handle premises liability claims involving slip and fall accidents and negligent security.

What financial compensation may I receive from my personal injury lawsuit?

Personal injury lawsuits seek to compensate victims for their past, present, and future medical and rehabilitation expenses, for lost wages, diminished earning capacity, property damage, and pain and suffering. At our Manhattan-area firm, our personal injury lawyers have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, workplace injury, and construction accident victims.

Auto Accidents

What should I do if I am in a car accident?

Regardless of whether you have been involved in an auto accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident, you should call the police and seek medical treatment immediately. Do not speak to the at-fault driver’s insurance company about the accident or agree to a recorded statement. Seek experienced representation; an experienced attorney will protect your best interests and help you obtain just compensation.

Who pays off my bills if I am involved in a car accident?

In most auto accident cases, your own automobile insurance carrier will pay for medical bills regardless of whose fault the car accident was. However, it is standard practice for insurance companies to initially offer low initial settlement offers. Obtaining fair compensation for your injuries often requires the assistance of an experienced, auto accident attorney.

The insurance adjustor of the other driver is calling me at home. What should I do?

Do not talk to the at-fault driver’s insurance adjustor before speaking to our Manhattan auto accident and personal injury lawyers. Remember, the adjustor works for the other driver’s insurance company. Their job is to pay as little compensation as possible after a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. If you are being pressured by an adjustor of another driver, contact our auto accident attorneys immediately.

Medical Malpractice

What does “customary standard of care” mean?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, usually a doctor, fails to provide with treatment consistence with the “customary standard of care” in the medical industry. The phrase refers to whether the medical professional exercised the same degree of care and skill as a similarly qualified medical professional would have in circumstances similar to those of your case.

Yes. No consent form or waiver can release a physician from responsibility for his or her negligent actions. If our Manhattan medical malpractice lawyers can demonstrate that negligence or a deviation from standard medical procedure occurred on the part of a medical professional, you may still be entitled to compensation.

If I believe that I have been harmed by medical malpractice, what should I do?

Without the advice of an experienced medical malpractice attorney, you have no idea what your case is worth. Too often victims choose to “go it alone” and settle for far less compensation than they deserve. Contact the Manhattan law office of David Horowitz, PC Our medical malpractice lawyers will help determine your claim’s true value and advise you of your best course of action.
