New York Personal Injury Attorneys
No-Win, No-Fee Accident Lawyers Serving New York
If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a serious accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The courts in New York recognize the right of an accident victim or surviving family members to sue for monetary damages when the accident was caused by another party's negligence. In other words, if the accident was not your fault, you should not be forced to pay the price. At Berkowitz & Vargas, we fight for the rights of people who have been wronged, and we represent clients on a contingency-fee basis. What does this mean for you? It means that we will charge you no fee unless you recover. We only get paid if we win your case, so we are fully dedicated to recovering the maximum available compensation for your medical expenses, your lost income, as well as the pain, suffering and emotional distress that you have been forced to endure.
Our New York personal injury attorneys are an experienced team of litigators who have won millions of dollars in insurance settlements and jury verdicts for our clients. Devotion to our clients is our priority, because we recognize that your success is our success. We understand how much could be at stake for you and your family – your ability to afford the medical treatment you need and make ends meet while you are out of work – and we want to do everything that we can to replace your losses. Suffering catastrophic injuries or losing a family member in a major accident is very often a turning point in a person's life, and for many it leads to bankruptcy and similar consequences. Don't let this happen to you. Hire our team to represent you in your claim and to pursue the full compensation that you deserve.
What to Do if You are in an Accident
Nearly anyone can expect to be involved in a car crash, truck collision, pedestrian accident or bicycle accident at some point in their life. Few people are prepared to handle the situation appropriately from the viewpoint of being able to recover compensation in an insurance claim. The one thing that you must not do in the aftermath of your accident is attempt to settle the claim by working directly with the insurance company. Their primary concern is to protect the bottom-line, and this means paying you as little as possible. Claims adjusters and representatives are trained to look for evidence and elicit statements that can be used to minimize or deny claims such as yours, and you cannot safely discuss the case with them on your own. Refer all requests for contact to Berkowitz & Vargas as your legal representation, and let us work to maximize the value of your claim.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
The trial attorneys at Berkowitz & Vargas represent clients in a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death claims. We handle traffic collisions and slip and fall accidents, as well as medical malpractice lawsuits and litigation involving dangerous and defective consumer products, including contaminated food products. Clients come to us for help in suing for assault and battery, as well as for workplace violations such as a hostile work environment and sexual harassment. Another major area of practice for us is civil rights claims involving police misconduct and brutality, false arrest and Taser abuse.
