Syracuse Law Firm
Accidents occur every day. People suddenly find themselves injured and unable to take care of themselves and their families. Victims don’t start the day with the idea their lives will dramatically change before the day ends, but it happens. In a heartbeat, everything can be irreversibly altered. In some cases, the injuries are painful, but not life-threatening. In others, those few seconds during an accident change lives forever.
Injuries frequently make it impossible to live a normal life or perform the duties of a cherished and necessary job. That’s where we enter the picture. At Porter Nordby Howe, one of the leading law firms in New York, our seasoned trial lawyers are ready to take whatever action is necessary to ensure your rights are preserved and you get the compensation needed.
No Two Accidents are the Same
While accidents often share common characteristics, we understand that each accident is unique—both in terms of how they were caused, and the net impact upon the victims. Our team of expert lawyers in Syracuse will explore all aspects of the accident to determine what steps are necessary to safeguard your rights, and to increase the odds that you receive all the compensation to which you’re entitled. We work with clients and our experts to determine who was responsible for the accident and take every step necessary to make sure the proper parties provide restitution for your injuries and other losses.
Because every accident is different, our approach to seeking a recovery for you will be tailored to the specific factors involved in your incident and the type of injuries that resulted. Our goal is to develop a plan of action to ensure your needs are met and your family is protected well into the future.
We Represent Clients Who’ve Experienced Many Types of Accidents
At Porter Nordby Howe LLP, we have vast experience representing individuals and families in many different types of accidents. Whether it was an auto accident, a construction mishap, medical malpractice, or other types of incidents, we’ll work with you to get your life back on track. We have the tools, experience, and resources necessary to effectively take your case from start to finish. We will do whatever it takes to obtain a just settlement for you and your family. Most importantly, our attorneys do everything possible to protect your rights at every stage of negotiations or, when necessary, in a courtroom.
Private Citizens Can File Claims Against the Government
Injured parties are not limited to taking action against other individuals or businesses. In many cases, actions can be filed against governmental entities (towns, villages, cities, and even the federal government) deemed liable for injuries suffered in an accident. We’re prepared to assist clients with these sorts of actions when an agency or their employees created or ignored a hazard that caused an injury. In these cases, it’s very important to discuss the accident with our team as soon as possible to make sure the action is filed within the statutorily required timeframe.
Getting the compensation you’re entitled to requires experience. Our team has worked hard for thousands of clients to obtain settlements far greater than what would generally be possible by accident victims negotiating settlements on their own, and without the benefit of sound legal advice. Our team of has decades of combined experience, and we dedicate ourselves each and every day to providing the best service possible for every one of our clients regardless of the size of their claim.
For you, that means we’ve almost certainly dealt with situations similar to yours, and that experience arms us with knowledge of how to approach your case to maximize the likelihood of successfully settling your claim successfully, and recovering for you the maximum amount possible. We understand how devastating an accident can be, and how the long-term effects of an accident can impact your life not only today, but for years into the future.
We Protect Your Rights at Every Step of the Process
Every accident victim needs protection as soon as possible to protect their rights. We work with clients to make sure they don’t do or say anything that could potentially damage their case now or at some point in the future. No one knows immediately after an accident just how serious an injury really is. Receiving immediate medical treatment is always necessary, but that’s often not the end of necessary medical care. It’s our goal to make sure every client avoids making harmful statements to anyone after an accident, especially representatives of insurance companies, without first discussing what should or should not be discussed.
The true degree of many injuries may not be evident for weeks or even months after an accident. That’s why it’s so important to discuss your claims with a injury attorney as soon as possible to make sure nothing is settled until the long-term effects of an injury can be fully appreciated. While it may be tempting to take that first offer from an insurance company, it’s generally not a good idea, for doing so may severely compromise your right to seek additional compensation in the future.
Communication is Important
Throughout the legal process, we know how vital it is to maintain an open line of communication. Our team wants your input at every stage. Information will need to be clarified and further detailed. We also understand how vital the outcome is to your future, and we always want you to be fully aware of how things are progressing. That means we always keep the lines of communication open with each and every one of our clients.
