Being hurt in an accident may change your life in an instant, and it is often difficult to know what to do next. The first and most important step is seeking immediate medical attention to make sure that you get the treatment that you need. After that stage, however, you may be concerned about your ability to pay for your treatment. You also may feel that the person who hurt you should be held responsible for it.
The lawyers at The Rabin Law Firm help people throughout Central New York who have been hurt by careless drivers and others. Ben Rabin has over 20 years of experience pursuing justice for victims of motorcycle crashes, car crashes, bicycle crashes, dog bites, construction accidents and many other forms of personal injury. He has successfully handled cases for wrongful death, injuries to children, premises liability, and many more. Each injured person who seeks his help receives his personal attention from start to finish of the case. And, there is NO FEE unless Ben recovers compensation for the injuries.
In order to get compensation in most injury cases, you must prove that another party was responsible. As an experienced personal injury lawyer, Ben understands how to prove causation and the other elements of negligence required to be successful. He also knows that defendants and their insurance companies tend to do whatever they can to dodge liability. For example, they may try to blame the victim by saying that the victim acted carelessly and was partly responsible for the incident. This is because New York law provides that a victim’s compensation award may be reduced by the degree to which the victim was responsible for an accident.
Attorney Ben Rabin is familiar with these tactics, having spent time as an insurance company lawyer himself, and in addition, having spent over 20 years fighting insurance companies who try to escape responsibility. If an insurer tries to unfairly blame you the victim for the accident, Ben will fight back against it as vigorously as possible, ensuring that the blame is not shifted to you.
Victims who have been hurt because someone acted carelessly should make sure to seek full compensation for all of the damages that they suffered. This typically includes medical bills, lost wages and earning capacity, pain and suffering, and property damage. Victims may even be able to get reimbursed for the costs of future treatment that they are reasonably likely to need in the future. Ben Rabin will take the time to explore the full extent of your injuries, damages, and costs — leaving no stone unturned in the crucial investigatory phase of your case.
