Why An Attorney Is Important Following An Injury Accident

If you are injured in an accident that is caused by someone else's negligence, it may seem like an insurance company — either yours or the at-fault party's — should help you recover the full amount necessary to pay for medical costs, lost wages and other expenses. Sadly, this is not always the case.

Although many insurance companies' marketing messages promote how much they care about their customers, the truth is they are more concerned about their own bottom line. Insurance company representatives are adept at minimizing the amount they pay out following injury accidents. That is why it is essential to enlist the services of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who can advocate on your behalf.

We represent injured parties throughout Long Island from our office in West Islip, New York. If your injuries limit your mobility, we will meet with you wherever it is convenient.

Fighting For The Injured Is What We Do

At the Law Office of Frank A. Cetero, Esq., protecting the rights of those who have been injured through no fault of their own is our job. We understand the strategies that insurance companies and their lawyers use, and we are able to develop legal arguments to counter those strategies.

Following an injury accident, it is important to seek immediate medical attention and to follow the prescribed treatment carefully. Any deviation from prescribed medical care could negatively impact your personal injury lawsuit.

It is also important to not answer questions from insurance company representatives — yours or an at-fault party's — until you have spoken with a personal injury attorney. Statements you make to insurance representatives can be used against you to minimize or reject your claim. We will communicate with insurance representatives on your behalf once we are working on your case.

More Money In Your Pocket

Simply put, our goal is to put more money in your pocket than you would recover without us, even after our attorney fee is paid. And remember, we only collect an attorney fee if we help you obtain a recovery, either through a negotiated settlement or a court judgment.
