  • How Can a Morgan & Morgan Lawyer Help Me?

    We understand there is no shortage of personal injury lawyers out there, and everybody says they are the best at what they do. However, we believe in proof. That's why we post all of our successes right on our website. We believe victims of personal injury have a right to be heard and compensated while holding the wrongdoers accountable for their negligence. Here's how we can be of service to you during this difficult time. 

    Reaching settlement agreements - The majority of personal injury claims don't make it to court because trials can be risky for both parties. Instead, most claims are settled through the art of negotiation. The complexity of your case will dictate how much negotiating needs to occur. Still, you can be assured your personal injury lawyer will fight hard to protect your rights and interests. Our experience is critical to how we negotiate. We know when insurance companies are negotiating in good faith, and when they're not, we push harder.

    The goal of any insurance company is to pay as little as possible, even for legitimate claims. When they draw a line in the sand, but we know they're being unfair, we don't hesitate to file a personal injury lawsuit. This helps to make them understand we're serious. This tactic often results in a higher settlement offer coming your way.  

    Expediting your claim - When you represent yourself in an insurance claim, you can be overwhelmed with the legal red tape, paperwork, phone calls, emails, and other communication required. It can drag on for months or even years in some claims. Meanwhile, your medical bills are piling up, and you may not be able to afford to get the treatment you need. When you hire a personal injury lawyer, you can be assured that no deadlines or critical communications are missed. Your personal injury lawyer doesn't work alone on your claim. Instead, they will have a whole support staff that will help to expedite your claim and get you the funds you need quickly.

    Representing you in court - When push comes to shove, we're not afraid to press back. That includes filing a lawsuit if negotiations don't produce a fair settlement offer. It's crucial to have your own legal representation in court because the insurance company will have its own legal experts fighting against you. We take care of all the legal paperwork and gathering of evidence to represent you with a solid legal argument. Some of our clients have won over 20 times what was offered in pre-trial settlements, although those cases were where we knew the settlement offer wasn't adequate, that’s why we had to push. Our Bronx personal injury lawyers know when there's more left on the table and when to go after it. 

    Objectivity - When you've been seriously injured, it's very common to feel overwhelmed, angry, and emotional. That's natural. However, when approaching legal matters, objectivity is crucial. It's part of your personal injury lawyer's job to be objective, so they see every angle. An analytical approach helps us know when an argument is weak or strong and what evidence will build a stronger claim.

    Experience with the personal injury claims process - The personal injury claims process can be complex and challenging to navigate on your own. Like a missed deadline, one slip-up could ruin your chances of recovering compensation. Mistakes could also significantly reduce the amount you're awarded. Our Bronx personal injury lawyers are experts at what they do. They are familiar with the local courts, which can help to expedite your case. We work with you to gather the evidence needed to prove the other party's liability and get you the most compensation possible. 

    Getting the best medical care - We always recommend that our clients see a physician quickly after being injured. However, suppose you haven't seen a doctor yet. In that case, we have a network of medical providers in the Bronx area who can give you an accurate diagnosis of your injuries and provide the best treatment. We often work closely with doctors to understand the extent of your injuries and your physical prognosis for the future. This is important as we use all of this information to calculate how much to ask for in compensation. Future medical bills are often overlooked, yet they can be more costly than all the medical bills that have racked up so far. 

  • When Should I Hire a Bronx Personal Injury Lawyer?

    There is no specific time when you have to hire a Bronx personal injury lawyer. However, we recommend getting in touch with us as soon as possible after you've suffered a personal injury. There's evidence to secure and witnesses to interview. The longer you wait, the more likely that evidence is lost and eyewitnesses forget. 

    We don't think it's wise to talk to the other party's insurance company without being advised of your rights. You can inadvertently do a lot of damage to your claim if you say the wrong things. Unfortunately, that is often the goal when the other party's insurance company is interviewing you. The phone calls are usually recorded, and they'll use a slip-up to their advantage. 

    As previously stated, our personal injury lawyers will help expedite the entire process, so the sooner you have us fighting for you, the sooner you'll get compensation for medical bills, lost income, and property damage. 

    Another reason to hire a lawyer quickly is to avoid missing a critical deadline in personal injury claims. New York's statute of limitations for civil matters is just three years from the date of the incident for personal injury and injury to personal property. You have just one year for personal injury caused by libel or slander. For professional malpractice, you have three years, and medical malpractice is two-and-a-half years. When those deadlines are missed, you have virtually no recourse. The courts will simply throw your case out. 

    Also, as previously mentioned, you should hire a lawyer quickly because insurance companies will have legal experts on their side too. You want an even playing field and someone on your side who will work to protect your interests.

  • What Kind of Cases Do Morgan & Morgan's Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?

  • How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Prove Liability?

    Deciding who's at fault is at the core of any personal injury claim. How fault is determined is through the evidence. That's why you must have us working with you to gather evidence to support your claim. When we’ve built a strong legal argument, we present this evidence to the liable party's insurance company or the courts if the at-fault party refuses liability.

    Personal injury law is typically based on negligence. The negligent party either conducted themselves in a manner that fell below the standard of care a reasonable person would use or caused harm to another person through a negligent act or non-action. What we need to prove is the four elements of negligence, which are:

    Duty - The responsible party had a legal duty of care to you. For example, all drivers owe a duty of care to others who are on the roadways. 

    Breach of duty - The responsible party failed in their duty of care toward you. For example, they created a dangerous situation by driving too fast.

    Causation - The responsible party must have caused your injuries or harm. For example, the speeding driver hit you, and as a result, you sustained internal injuries.

    Damages - There must be an element of loss to prove negligence. Most of the time, this is financial loss through medical expenses and lost wages, or in a slander case, your reputation was damaged.
