About The Personal Injury Claim Process in New York
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you essentially have two options:
- Settle your claim with the responsible party; or
- File a lawsuit and seek compensation through the courts.
The personal injury claim process begins with attempting to settle your claim, typically through the responsible party’s insurance company. This may sound simple, but insurance companies will require compelling proof that their insured is at fault and that you are entitled to the compensation you are seeking. Many insurance companies will try to settle your claim for as little as possible, typically for far less than what it is worth.
If you are unable to settle your claim for a reasonable amount, your only option is to go to court. The legal process can be extremely difficult for non-lawyers to navigate and even a minor mistake can seriously jeopardize your claim.
At HoganWillig, we believe in aggressively pursuing the compensation you deserve. When you work with a Buffalo personal injury attorney from our firm, they are fully prepared to go to court from the outset. This helps us settle claims quickly and fairly, as well as helps us build the strongest possible case should the responsible party be unwilling to settle.
