B.J. who used to own a house in Plainview, now in Virginia commented:
“Elan represented me when I sold my house after I moved down to Virginia. He negotiated for me whenever issues came up, and guided me through all the steps I need to do without ever setting foot in New York. When I needed the documentation a few months after the deal, he searched for the documents immediately. No such thing as “Let me get back to you tomorrow!” I would be comfortable with employing him for another transaction if I had a chance (although that may not happen now that I moved out of the state). Highly recommended!”

What types of compensation am I eligible to receive?
How to file a personal injury lawsuit
To begin a lawsuit in New York, the plaintiff is required to prepare and file a Summons & Complaint. These documents inform the defendant that s/he is being sued and the details of the lawsuit. An index number is assigned to the case and all subsequent documents filed in the case bear this unique number for proper record-keeping. The filing of these documents kickstarts the lifecycle of a lawsuit. The Summons & Complaint must be served on the defendants in accordance with the law to have the necessary legal effect.
How long do you have to file a lawsuit?
Is there a deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit?
How long does a personal injury case take?
It is important to note that each case is completely different, and the duration is determined by its complexities, the cooperation of the defense party(ies), and the route it takes. The lifespan of a personal injury lawsuit can take between 6 months to 5 years from the moment a lawyer is retained. It may take longer if the judgment is appealed by the aggrieved party. A case that ends in settlement may take between 6 months and 2 years. Every case is unique and your attorney would be able to give you an idea of the length of time it could take.
Do most personal injury cases settle at mediation? The stronger a personal injury claim is, the higher the probability of achieving settlement at mediation. Most personal injury cases that have higher chances of success at trial are often resolved at the mediation stage. It also depends on the willingness of the insurance company to settle.
Do personal injury cases settle after deposition? There is usually no given time for a case settlement. Depositions allow for the parties and the lawyers to gather more facts and evidence about the case and pinpoint areas of strengths and weaknesses. If the depositions reveal that the defense is weak, the insurance company would be more persuaded to settle after depositions.
Is it worth hiring a personal injury attorney?
There are so many complexities when pursuing a personal injury claim whether you are dealing with a settlement offer or filing a lawsuit. There are both technical (e.g. expert witness, nature of injury) and legal complexities (e.g. laws, court rules, arguments) that may make the terrain very difficult and sometimes impossible to navigate for non-lawyers.
A personal injury lawyer would help you:
- Navigate a personal injury claim
- Advise you on your rights
- Investigate the circumstances of the accident and preserve and develop evidence to prove your claim
- File a lawsuit and represent you in court
- Advocate for a fair settlement offer and if one can’t be obtained, proceed to trial and have a jury resolve the case by verdict
If you have suffered an injury as a result of another person’s negligence, you do need a personal injury lawyer to help you with your claim.
How to find a personal injury lawyer: You can send us a message via our website or through any of our social media handles. The Law Offices of Elan Wurtzel would assign a competent and experienced lawyer to your case.
Should I contact an attorney before accepting the offer from my insurance company?
What should I bring to my first appointment?
To help The Law Offices Of Elan Wurtzel accurately assess your case, bring as many relevant documents as you have available — including photographs of the accident scene, doctors’ reports, lab results, mechanics’ quotes, income statements, and witnesses’ contact information.
Do you have to pay taxes on personal injury settlements?
How are personal injury settlements paid out?
Personal injury settlements can be paid to the plaintiff as a lump sum or in installments. If it is to be paid out on installments, the arrangement is designed to be a structured settlement and once the terms are agreed, they become binding and cannot be changed.
How much to ask for in a personal injury settlement? Each case is unique and must be assessed on its merits. Some of the factors to consider when asking for a settlement is the extent of injury caused, loss of benefits as a result of that injury (e.g. wages, profits, etc.), medical bills, the judgment sum, etc. An experienced personal injury attorney would help you to assess the strength of the claim and how much is a good settlement offer.
What percentage do lawyers take for personal injury?
Lawyers in New York State receive a contingency fee in the amount of One-Third (33.33%) as attorneys fees. This fee is only paid if there is a successful recovery on your behalf. If there is no recovery, there is no legal fee.
What if I cannot afford an attorney to file my personal injury lawsuit? Because the legal fee is a contingency one, you can always afford to hire an attorney for a personal injury claim. If for any reason the case is not successful, you are not responsible for the payment of legal fees.
