The representation of individuals who were injured due to negligence is a most rewarding field which we have the privilege to practice. Our lawyers and support staff love what we do. We work hard to achieve just compensation for our clients and our multi-million dollar results are a testament to our success.
Our firm treats each client as a member of our family. We do not just process a volume of cases – we represent each client as an individual. To that end, we make ourselves extremely accessible via phone, e-mail, and in person appointments. Our offices in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx allow clients to see us at their convenience. For new clients, we also make home or hospital visits when an injury prevents someone from traveling to our offices.
For anyone seeking a New York personal injury lawyer, choosing the right lawyer can be a difficult task. In New York, there are several thousand attorneys who might call themselves "personal injury lawyers". The frustrating challenge for a potential client is to figure out which of these New York personal injury lawyers can and will do the best job possible.
At Frekhtman and Associates in New York, we let our track record speak for itself. We are exclusively a plaintiffs' practice - that means our lawyers never have and never will represent an insurance company. We encourage potential personal injury clients to confirm our track record by reviewing the trial summaries including settlements and jury verdicts from Verdict Search ™ or Westlaw ™ for our firm's trial lawyers.
When you join us at our conference table, you are sitting down with the New York personal injury lawyer who will handle your file. If we agree to work together, that same New York personal injury lawyer will meet with you directly throughout the life of your case. Our formula for finding the right match between attorney and client, and for assessing the true value of a case, has been honed from handling thousands of personal injury cases.
Once we accept your case, we will start working on it immediately. We prepare each client matter for trial with diligence and precision. The legal process of a personal injury matter is complex but a very brief outline is as follows:
Summons and Complaint (the Lawsuit is filed)
Answer (Defendant's Insurance Company submits a written Answer to the Complaint)
Preliminary Conference (meeting with the judge to set up a scheduling Order)
Written Discovery Exchanged (medical records, accident reports, employment records, etc.)
Depositions - Question and Answer sessions with all parties to the case. The key issues in an Accident or Injury case are 1) Liability: Who is at fault 2) Damages: Proof of Medical Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Economic Damages
Note of Issue (certifying all discovery has been completed and the case is trial ready)
Trial (selecting a jury – voire dire. Commencing the trial before a judge and jury)
Our firm prepares our clients thoroughly. At trial, we offer the strongest possible presentation of liability and damages so that the jury will return a verdict awarding maximum compensation. For a free consultation, call us at (866) ATTY-LAW or fill out the 'Contact Us' form at the right.
