Lancaster NY Personal Injury Lawyers
If you have been in a car accident, injured working in unsafe conditions, or exposed to medical malpractice, you may need Buffalo personal injury lawyers. Our personal injury attorneys are highly qualified professionals who can help you resolve a number of legal situations. We are always fully prepared to try every case to get maximum results, but will not encourage our clients to go through that process if there is a settlement offer that serves their interests. That balanced approach puts our clients’ interests first and is the reason our firm has successfully tried and settled the vast majority of our personal injury cases since we were established in Buffalo in 1974.
Here are some things to think about when you are considering hiring our personal injury attorneys at the Kustell Law Group, LLP in Buffalo, New York:
When do you need a personal injury attorney?
- Disabling Injuries: If someone has injured you either intentionally or by failing to do what was reasonable to protect others and if that injury resulted in a disability or a long-term reduction in your quality of life, then you should consult a accident lawyer. For example, if you were in a car accident and the crash resulted in paralysis, a personal injury attorney can help determine your next step. If you have suffered an injury that has resulted in you missing work for an extended period of time, consult an attorney.
- Catastrophic Injuries: Perhaps the injury you have suffered has not resulted in a disability, or long-term absences from work. Still, you could be facing mounting medical bills. If you have been injured and are having trouble paying your medical bills, you should consult an attorney.
- Medical Malpractice: If a doctor or other medical professional has violated standard medical practice and injured you, you should consult an attorney. Even if you signed a release, a qualified personal injury attorney will help you determine your rights.
Other situations that may require a personal injury law firm are:
- Defective products
- Construction accidents
- Unsafe premises
- When an insurance company is refusing to pay your rightful claim
What Will Your Attorney Do For You?
First and foremost, our law firm will deal with the insurance companies. Most personal injury cases do not go to trial. Our personal injury attorneys will negotiate with the insurance companies to get the best possible settlement. If your personal injury suit goes to trial, our personal injury attorneys will represent your interests against the person that injured you or their insurance company.
Our attorneys spend much of their time fighting insurance companies and know how to defeat the tactics the less reputable insurance companies use. Again, their job is to win you the compensation that lets you get on with your life and makes up the financial end of your damages.
What Are The Costs?
Our personal injury attorneys work on contingency. We do not charge an hourly rate and our compensation is based upon your result. That puts our interests directly in line with yours. We want an efficient process, as little delay as possible and the best possible financial result for you and your family. We also feel that there is a community element to our practice. Where wrong has been done and someone has been injured, we can help ensure that those hurt are compensated and that the Buffalo / Western New York area is a safer place to live.
We are selective about the cases we accept because we invest a tremendous amount of time and effort on every client’s behalf. Clients are responsible for the cost of court fees and filing costs, but are not be required to pay any attorney fees in the improbable event that a personal injury case we take is not successful. If your personal injury case is successful, the attorney’s take depends on the injury and attorney costs, and things like expert fees if they were required in your case.
