Each year, millions of people in the United States are injured in accidents. Many of these accidents are unfortunately caused by the preventable carelessness or malicious intent of others. The law protects those harmed by negligent parties and allows the injured to seek compensation for their suffering. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident resulting from negligence or intentional harm of others, you may be entitled to receive just compensation for your physical and psychological injuries.

Call a New York City Personal Injury Attorney
The New York personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Effie Soter, PC offer free appointments to discuss your rights. Call an attorney at 646-504-7384 to learn more about personal injury.
We will take the time to learn all about your case and assess your rights. We will then explain the legal process so you are prepared for each step that our firm will take in furtherance of your claim. We will also provide you with a detailed understanding of the legal aspects of your case and what to expect as your case proceeds.
One such right includes pursuing an initial settlement through the insurance company and considering any initial settlement. We have the skill to look ahead and consider your viable options and what recovery you may be entitled to receive. With this knowledge, our law firm can properly evaluate the full extent of the damages and help to determine if the initial settlement is fair and adequate to ensure your full physical and financial recovery.
If after our discussion it is determined that the initial settlement offered was unjust, we will take the time to learn all about your case and assess whether or not you should take the initial settlement offered by the insurance company. We have the foresight and skill to look at the road ahead and consider future damages which may harm the victim for years to come including pain, emotional trauma and subsequent injuries. With this knowledge, our personal injury law firm can properly evaluate the full extent of the damage and help to determine if the initial settlement is fair and adequate to ensure your full physical and financial recovery.
If our attorneys feel the initial settlement offered was unjust, we will aggressively pursue damages against the individual or company that caused the harm. This claim may be based on:
- Negligence—When the injury was a direct result of the defendant’s failure to act.
- Causation—When the actions of an individual or company cause the injury
- Malicious Intent—When the injury is the result of intentional harm. When this is the basis of the claim, a criminal case is usually involved as well.
- Product Liability—When a product does not meet safety standards.
In the days following our initial meeting with you, we will reconstruct the accident and obtain evidence to support your claim. We routinely work with medical professionals, forensic experts and private investigators that can conduct a detailed investigation and produce an independent analysis of your accident
In far too many cases, one’s rights are permanently forfeited because the injured person believed what he or she was told by the insurance company. Insurance companies will employ significant resources to challenge your claim in order to maximize their profits. With powerful legal teams and years of experience, these large corporations often have the edge when dealing with the injured. In such difficult situations, you take a tremendous risk if you don’t have solid legal counsel and representation on your side. Our experienced personal injury attorneys, however, can help to level the playing field and will work diligently to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
While our personal injury law firm cannot undo injury or suffering, we can put that suffering into words so that we can seek damages for our injured clients. We are dedicated to obtaining the very best recovery possible for you through experienced, professional and aggressive representation.
