Too many people are afraid to contact a personal injury attorney because they’re afraid their case isn’t big enough.

We’re the top accident lawyers in Queens because we always go the extra mile to help our clients.
Catastrophic Injury Cases Need Special Attention
Catastrophic injuries can turn the lives of an entire family upside down. Breadwinners can become dependents, and the extended family can be stretched thin providing child care when primary caregivers suffer catastrophic injuries. State of the art treatment is extremely expensive, and not usually covered by health insurance in network care, no-fault or workers compensation. That’s why it’s so important to hire an attorney that knows how to pull together a World Class team to get you the huge amount of compensation that you’ll need to achieve the optimum amount of healing for your injuries. The following types of injuries often require years of top notch rehabilitation to achieve optimal results:
- SPINAL CORD INJURIES including paraplegia and quadriplegia
- TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES (TMJ) including loss of cognition and control of bodily functions
- TRAUMATIC BLINDNESS, DEAFNESS OR MUTENESS
- TRAUMATIC AND SURGICAL AMPUTATIONS with or without prosthetics
Medical science is improving treatment for these and many other disabling injuries, but access to the top doctors and facilities is reserved for those that can afford the high prices. That’s why it’s important to work with a catastrophic injury attorney that knows how to get you top dollar when somebody has caused these injuries through their negligence, recklessness or intentional act. We’re the top accident lawyers in Queens because we know how to find deep pockets and get the largest amount of compensation for victims of catastrophic injuries.
Small Cases Can Have Merit
Some attorneys that handle catastrophic injury cases turn away people with smaller injuries because they don’t make enough money on these cases to merit their time. At Wittenstein & Wittenstein, we’ll help you collect money for your injuries even if they’re not catastrophic. As long as your case has merit, we’ll help you collect what you’re entitled for medical expenses, lost earnings, pain, suffering and mental anguish. So, you’re wondering, what does it mean for a case to have merit. Your case must have:
- An injury that’s substantiated with prompt medical attention at a hospital, urgent care center or with a physician;
- A solid theory of liability with evidence to back it up;
- Proof that the injury was actually caused by the accident.
For example, we’d be glad to handle your case if you sustained a back injury from a car accident where you were hit in the rear and went to the emergency room by ambulance from the scene. This example case would likely lack merit if you never received any medical treatment or if the police report said that ten witnesses saw you back up into the car behind you. We also might not take your case if you had five similar small accidents where you complained about minor back injuries. If you’re not sure if your case has merit, you can call us at 718-261-8114 for a free consultation. It never hurts to ask. We’re the top accident lawyers in Queens because we will have your small cases, not just big ones.
The No Free Lunch Rule
One of the most important things to understand before hiring a personal injury attorney in Forest Hills is the no free lunch rule. There are so many firms making claims about multi-million dollar verdicts, but they’re not giving you the full story. First of all, those types of verdicts and settlements are only possible for victims with catastrophic injuries such as paraplegia, quadriplegia, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, disfiguring scars or loss of a limb. If your case is a sprained ankle from slipping on water at a drugstore, do you really think it’s worth millions of dollars? You should also be wondering whether you can trust somebody that would give you that impression. Don’t fall for scams like cash in your pocket for retaining an attorney or using a therapy place – your legal rights and your health deserve better.
