Fighting To Help Accident Victims Move Forward
People involved in auto accidents understand that life can change drastically in a split second. Often, victims face significant medical bills and repair costs. Some individuals are unable to work due to their injuries. Finding a way to move forward and hold responsible parties accountable for their negligence can be overwhelming on your own.
As an experienced Staten Island motor vehicle accident lawyer, I am passionate about helping individuals obtain the maximum compensation for injuries resulting from the negligence of others. At the Michael J. Gaffney Law Firm, I leverage my decades of experience as a personal injury attorney to guide accident victims through the legal process with personal attention to their needs and unique circumstance.
Supporting You Through A Difficult Time
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident resulting in personal injury, it is critical you contact an experienced motor vehicle attorney immediately. A thorough investigation of the accident is crucial. The sooner your attorney becomes involved, the better informed they can be while building your case. There are several steps I typically take when taking a case, including:
- Collect and analyze police reports
- Gather witness statements
- Communicate with the insurance company on your behalf
- Obtain documentation related to your injury
Throughout this process, I communicate my findings with my client, offering straightforward, practical advice with a realistic assessment of their probability of success. For over four decades, I have been representing people injured in truck, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents. I understand the limitations that come with severe injury and can meet with clients in their homes and hospital rooms. Communication is vital during this time. I keep clients up to date and respond quickly to calls and emails, giving each client personal attention.
Protecting Your Best Interests After An Accident
I represent clients in all phases of negotiations to obtain the most money for injuries they’ve sustained. Whether negotiating a settlement is in your best interests or we need to take your case to court, I am prepared to fight for your rights. Licensed in New York and New Jersey, I frequently represent clients in both state and federal courts, as well as arbitration.
After an accident, you should not have to worry about battling an insurance company to make sure your medical expenses, repair costs and lost wages are reimbursed. Call my Staten Island office at 347-286-1937 or email me to schedule a free initial consultation.
