The Advantage of Hiring A Specialist

Most people understand the advantage of being treated by a specialist when they have a serious medical problem. A specialist has treated many people with the same illness or injury you’re suffering from, and has the experience and knowledge that you can depend on. You wouldn’t get brain surgery from a dermatologist, and you wouldn’t hire a real estate attorney to handle your divorce, but law is just as specialized as medicine, and hiring exactly the right type of attorney for your case will get you the best results. So whether you’re looking for a NYC construction accident attorney, a Queens car accident attorney, a Bronx malpractice attorney or a Brooklyn civil rights attorney, it’s important to hire somebody that has a great deal of experience in their specialty.

Accident Attorney Specialties

If you’ve been injured in a traffic accident, it’s important to hire a Queens car accident attorney that specializes in this area. Some personal injury attorneys in Queens primarily handle slip and fall or product liability cases, and may not have the expertise to get the highest amount of compensation possible for your car accident case. This is especially true if the injuries you’ve sustained are severe or catastrophic. Most passenger vehicles in New York only carry the minimum $25,000 per person/$50,000 per incident liability coverage, so a Queens car accident attorney needs to go the extra mile to collect big money for clients. It’s important to investigate all potential claims arising from the incident in order to increase the amount of money available to victim such as:

  • Product liability claims for defective brakes or lights;
  • Improper training of a commercial driver;
  • Defects in the road should have been repaired by the City, State or Federal Government or
  • Negligence of the mechanic that recently repaired the vehicle.

Another important specialty is a NYC construction accident attorney. These cases are extremely complicated due to the overlapping and conflicting rights in worker’s compensation and it’s exceptions, labor law, OSHA, New York safety laws and regulations and common law. The responsible parties can include contractors, subcontractors, municipalities, states and the federal government.
