How Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. Can Help with the Claims Process

Posted By Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. || 23-Mar-2015

Do you understand the claims process for personal injury cases? It is always best to consult with a capable personal injury lawyer. When you're hurt, Mirman, Markovitz & Landau, P.C. is exactly the firm you need. We have helped victims of negligence since 1977, rising to become one of the top-rated firms in New York thanks to our strong work ethic and commitment to justice.

Our clients benefit from the following:

  • Fierce litigation
  • Compassionate counsel
  • 24/7 availability
  • In-home and hospital visits
  • No recovery, no fee guarantee
  • Personalized support and attention

When it comes to cases involving negligence, including auto accidents, construction accidents, or medical malpractice, our lawyers understand the strain on your finances that recovering from your injuries can bring. We understand that no amount of monetary compensation can change what has happened to you, but you can still find peace and resolution with our help.

The Claims Process

For personal injury cases, the statute of limitations in the state of New York to file a lawsuit is three years from the date of the incident. For medical malpractice cases, the limit is two years, six months. If you do not file suit within this time period, you could miss out on the chance to collect your compensation. The courts will not recognize your claim, no matter how valid it is, if you have initiated the suit past the date.

Let’s say that you are seeking to make a claim with the other party who caused your injury. In that time, your attorney and the claims adjuster cannot come to an agreement over the amount of compensation. That is when you can choose to file suit.

Insurance companies make any number of excuses to deny a claim. They may say that your injuries were unrelated to the accident. They may try to reduce their insured’s liability in the incident. While lawsuits imply that cases may need to be decided over in trial, the chances are slim. A settlement can be reached at any point before the trial date, often during arbitration or mediation phases, and they often do.

For you, as a claimant, this works in your favor because you can receive restitution sooner and you can also avoid the added cost of court fees. Be aware, though, that New York is a shared fault state, and if at any point it is determined that your actions partially contributed to liability in the accident, your award may be reduced to this. This is when you need an attorney to argue for you, to ensure that you receive maximum recovery.

How We Can Expedite Your Case

Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. has been at the helm of numerous personal injury cases for the past four decades, and we have seen and heard it all. We know what to anticipate. If you try to go through the claims process on your own, especially against large corporations like insurance companies, it may be an uphill battle that could promise few, if any, results. That is where we come in.

Remember that there is limited to file a claim, so be sure to call our New York personal injury lawyers at any time to get aggressive legal representation.
