WINNING IS NO ACCIDENT AT OLIVERI & SCHWARTZ, P.C.

The Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice & Wrongful Death Attorneys at Oliveri & Schwartz, P.C. handle all types of accident, personal injury and medical malpractice cases.

Getting quick legal representation is critically important. Insurance company lawyers are already preparing a defense. Your rights must be protected. Evidence needs to be collected. Records need to be obtained. We have a team of lawyers, legal staff and investigators ready to work for you.

If you are injured – or a loved one is killed – money damages may be available to you as compensation. Injuries and wrongful deaths cannot be reversed. Compensation, according to the American civil justice system, is money damages. But insurance companies believe ONLY in corporate profits, and try to DENY people full and fair compensation.

QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is physical or mental harm to a person caused by some person’s, company’s or other entity’s negligence or harmful conduct.

What is negligence?

Negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care. It is conduct that falls below the standards of care established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm. It is the unintentional cause of harm. Auto and taxi accidents, and premises slip and fall accidents, typically fall under negligence.

What is a Tort?

A tort is a civil wrong. Tort law requires people to reasonably avoid causing injuries and damage to others. A tort occurs when someone’s actions or inaction causes harm to another person or another person’s property. Personal injury claims fall under tort law.

Common torts

Some common examples of torts:

  • Auto and taxi accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Burn injuries
  • Smoke inhalation injuries
  • Slip, trip and fall
  • Lead poisoning
  • Defective medications
  • Negligent security
  • Drowning accidents
  • Assault
  • Police brutality

What is Civil Justice?

The only cases our firm handles are civil cases, as opposed to criminal cases or other types of legal matters. We do not practice in Family Court or Criminal Court. Wrongful death matters do require Surrogate Court involvement, but by and large our practice is devoted solely to New York Supreme Court or Federal Court civil cases.

Civil actions deal with private matters, typically disputes that arise between individuals or private businesses. If you prevail in a civil action, you are entitled to recover money damages. What this means is that we do not seek criminal charges against defendants and insurance companies. We only seek money damages to compensate your damages and losses. It is the only thing we do – seek Civil Justice for our clients.

What are compensatory damages?

Compensatory damages are meant to compensate the injured victim. They are designed to place a victim in the position he or she would be in if the injury had never occurred. A monetary value is assigned to what the victim lost as a result of the personal injury. These losses can include actual measurable costs such as medical bills, lost wages or earned sick or vacation time. Other compensatory damages do not have a bill or invoice value, so their value must be estimated. The most typical of these losses is your pain and suffering.

What is a Statute of Limitations?

A statute of limitations is a time period within which legal action must be brought. There are different time frames for different types of cases, specifying the legal requirement for how long you have to file your personal injury case. It is a time limit, or deadline, that governs the period during which you must file your personal injury lawsuit and varies by state. If legal action is not initiated within the specified time period, you lose the right to make any claims.

There are different time periods, for example, for a car crash case versus a medical malpractice case. There can be different rules if you are suing a business or individual versus a city or municipality. In cases involving injured children, there is usually an extension of time. In cases involving illnesses caused by chemical exposure or medical malpractice, there may be a delay in the discovery of the injury that allows for an extension. Time is of the essence. You should contact an experienced personal injury attorney, as soon as possible, to determine the time period applicable for your case.

How do I know if I have a good Personal Injury case?

You have a valid personal injury case if you have been injured and your injury was caused by another’s wrongdoing or negligence.

What if the other person’s insurance company contacts me after an injury and wants my recorded statement?

Just say no! First, consult with your own personal injury attorney. Do not provide a statement, sign any papers or accept a settlement from an insurance company without consulting your attorney. Your lawyer will be able to guide you as to how, if at all, the statement should be given.

When the other side’s insurance company asks you to give a taped statement, they will sound sympathetic to your plight. Actually, the insurance company is hoping to persuade you to give a statement without the benefit of counsel. It is probable that you are not legally obligated to give the statement, and there are legal consequences to giving such a statement.
