What Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer from Your Firm?
When people are in accidents, they consider legal help. However, they may ultimately decide against hiring a lawyer as they fear it’s costly. Different firms have different ways of paying their lawyers. While some firms charge hourly, many, like ours, use contingency fee structures. With this arrangement, anyone can afford our firm.

We provide all legal services for free until you are compensated through a settlement, jury verdict, or court judgment. You and your lawyer determine the contingency fee, which the lawyer will then deduct from your compensation. If we are not successful with your case, we do not get paid. So, there are no financial risks when you work with us.
Am I Eligible for Compensation?
If you are hurt in a truck accident, the party at fault carries the burden of compensating you, and they should be pursued. Your compensation should include any losses due to your injuries, such as the inability to work. Obtaining sufficient compensation comes with its challenges, but we will help you.
To be compensated, you must prove that the liable party or parties caused the injuries you sustained. You should also verify that the injuries caused a financial drain. We help clients involved in truck accidents get compensation by building robust cases that prove the cause, effect, and cost of the client’s injuries. We do so this by compiling evidence such as medical reports, photos of injuries, and witness statements supporting your compensation claim.
We will identify and calculate the value of your economic and non-economic damages and fight for the financial awards you are entitled to.

Who Is Liable for My Injuries?
The party responsible for the accident is liable for your injuries. Truck accidents commonly have several potential parties responsible and involve various insurance companies.
The trucking company may be held liable for the negligence of its driver. Other parties that may be held accountable include the owner of the cargo, the trucking company, the manufacturer, and a mechanic.
Your lawyer will independently investigate details of the accident, compile evidence to support your claim, and determine who the liability of your injuries should fall on. They then pursue all insurance coverage sources that are available. This way, they ensure that their clients are compensated justly for their physical injuries and the impact of them. If compensation through insurance companies is not attainable, we go to court.
Is There a Deadline to File My Lawsuit in Queens, NY?
The time you take in building a case can determine whether you will receive compensation. While you may be entitled to it after a truck accident, you must ensure that you file your lawsuit before the time limit elapses.
If you suffered injuries in a Queens County truck accident, you typically have three years to file a lawsuit, per CVP § 214.
This means that if you file your case within three years of a truck accident occurring, you may receive compensation for your injuries. However, if the three years lapse before you take legal action, you may lose your ability to pursue awards you deserve.
