New York Personal Injury Lawyers

New York personal injury lawyers help those throughout the Empire State pursue settlements to which they are entitled. New York is actually thought of as two regions: New York City and the rest of the state.

Find a qualified and extremely competent personal injury lawyer in your location.
 

This page focuses on New York personal injury lawyers who work throughout the state and not the city.

In order to find a qualified New York personal injury lawyer it is important to first read the general page on personal injury lawyers in order to know how to screen your choices. When finished, come back to this section to find out specifically, how to choose a New York personal injury lawyer to fit your needs.

Outside of New York City, personal injury lawyers work throughout the state from Niagara Falls and Buffalo to Syracuse to Albany and everywhere in-between. It is preferable to pick a New York personal injury attorney who works in the region in which the injury occurred. A personal injury attorney who has lived and worked in a particular judicial district for a long time knows the laws, court procedures and attitudes for that region and has an advantage over an attorney who is not a "local".

New York personal injury attorneys also need to know the political climate of the region that they live and work in, since politics affect laws and laws affect the rights of those injured. For instance, New York City, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Utica are heavily Democratic. The more rural areas of the state, however, tend to be more conservative and Republican. Knowing this, your New York personal injury lawyer will be able to represent your interests more effectively.

When it comes time to interview your pool of prospective New York personal injury lawyers for possible representation, it is important to ask many questions regarding the prospect's qualifications and vision for the claim. Questions regarding how long your prospect has worked specifically as a New York personal injury attorney and for how long in his / her particular district are good places to start. Also, ask about their success rate at trial in regards to litigating personal injury cases and if the attorney has litigated any cases similar to yours. Another question that is relevant is what CLE Courses the prospect has taken recently in order to stay current in the field of law.

If you would like to test your potential New York personal injury lawyer's knowledge about current cases, you may wish to ask about Blair v. Tirado, which involves an automobile accident or Renow v. A. W. Chesterton Company, which involves an asbestos-related illness allegedly stemming from a Volvo station wagon. If your prospective attorney is not up-to-date on these two cases, no worries but they should be familiar with Samuels & Gallagher v. New York, which is a current hot civil rights case involving gay marriage. The attorney doesn't have to be for or against this kind of union, but should familiar with the case as they should be aware of all high profile civil cases.

When investigating an attorney for possible representation it suggested that any disciplinary actions against the lawyer be investigated as well. New York personal injury lawyers who have received disciplinary actions can be investigated through the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court. Information such as law school attended and when admitted to the bar, can be investigated through the New York State Bar Association. In addition, the bar also gives out attorney referrals unlike many other states.

When dealing with personal injury cases in New York, patience is important. The legal pace for personal injury cases in New York is perhaps the slowest in the nation. For instance, just obtaining a police report can take 3 times longer in New York than in other states. Because of the backlog and slow pace, personal injury cases in New York may take years before they actually come to trial. The more a person is prepared for a lengthy legal battle, the more they can exercise the necessary patience to see the case through to its conclusion.
