CLIENTS PREFER A WOMAN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
Even though women now represent about 50% of law school graduates, there are very few women personal injury lawyers, even though it is well-established that many accident victims prefer a woman attorney. Accident victims feel more comfortable with women lawyers because they tend to be more sensitive and empathetic. Women who have suffered disfiguring injuries are less self-conscious showing these injuries to another woman, and discussing them with her. Men are also more comfortable with women attorneys, who they feel pay “motherly” attention to them, in ways that men do not tend to do.
If you are looking for a New York City woman accident attorney, you make sure that the lawyer you choose has enough experience with personal injury law, so that your case is handled properly and resolved as quickly as possible. It is equally important that the firm handling the case is well-established and has a good reputation. Insurance companies feel more pressure to offer a large settlement when an accident victim is represented by a prestigious law firm.

Can My Insurance Company Drop Me? Here at Wittenstein & Wittenstein, rarely does a day go by without somebody asking us if their insurance company can drop them. People pay for insurance, but are afraid to use it for fear of being dropped. That’s why we thought it would be helpful to address this, and the related issue of when an insurance company can raise your rates. When Can My Insurance Company Drop Me? An insurance company can drop you whenever they’d like to, and no reason is required. Most of the time however, insurance companies like to keep their customers. So they’re not likely to drop you unless it starts to look like they’ll have to pay out a lot more than what they collect from you. Insurance companies can do this through cancellation or non-renewal. Cancellation Cancellation is when an insurance company stops covering you during the term of your contract. This typically occurs if you’ve violated the terms of agreement in one of the following ways: 1. You fail to report an accident or violate other policy provisions 2. It is discovered that you’ve been rate-jumping 3. Your premiums are not up to date. A company cannot cancel your policy during the term of your contract just because you’ve been involved in one or more accidents (even if they were within a short time frame). They must continue to insure you until [...]
If you’ve been injured in accident, you might be wondering, "Who's the best accident attorney in New York City?" Just like you would want to find the best doctor, auto mechanic or interior decorator, you want the best lawyer. Of course, you do! But how is “best” defined? There’s a little dive in Chinatown that has the “best” dumplings, but I know some of you would say the food is “weird” and “Where’s the chow mein?” McDonald's has served billions of customers, but are their hamburgers really the best? I prefer mine cooked rare, on a brioche with swiss cheese. Let’s talk about the type of lawyer that’s best for you! You might tend to think the best lawyer in New York City is the one that advertises that they’ve collected billions of dollars, but they might not be the best lawyer for you. Are you paralyzed?
