Is My Injury Serious Enough?

We’re known in New York as accident lawyers who get serious money for people injured in accidents, even for injuries which aren’t that serious!

But there are some cases even we won’t take

We had to decline this inquiry through Avvo from someone who was injured at McDonald’s. The reason we couldn’t take this case is because the injury is only temporarily painful and the value of the injury is not enough to go against a large corporation. If it was against a homeowner’s or small store’s insurance we would have taken the case.

But no matter how minor you think your injury is, call us for a free consultation because we’ve gotten some serious money for clients with injuries that weren’t so serious.

We got $25,000 for our client with this scar on the inside of his lip and we got $16,000 for a client with a scar on the inside of her lip the size of the one in the purple circle.

How much is your injury worth? Every case is different but you can get an idea of how we decide how much money we want to compensate you for your injury.

It’s often difficult for someone to know if their injury is serious, so you should always call to find out. You can get a good idea here of what we might think is a serious injury and you can see the types of accidents which cause injuries for which we represent clients.
