Frequently Asked Questions
Long Island Personal Injury Attorneys
After an accident that resulted in personal injury, you may find yourself
feeling incredibly overwhelmed and emotionally distressed in addition
to your physical pain. You may also have a lot of questions about what
to do next and whether or not you need legal representation. Here at Laurence
A. Silverman, Esq., our goal is to provide you with the information you
need to make informed decisions after an accident. Read through the FAQs
below to learn more.
Q: What types of cases might I need a lawyer for?
A: There are a number of personal injury cases that would benefit from
having legal advice and representation. These include auto accidents,
bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction
site accidents, dog bite incidents, herniated disc and back injuries,
medical malpractice, and wrongful death.
Q: Is having a lawyer worth it (financially and otherwise)?
A: Absolutely. Without a lawyer, you may not get the financial compensation
you are entitled to from a personal injury case. If you think about the
cost of legal fees, it is most often minimal in comparison to the advantages,
financial and otherwise, of having an attorney on your side.
Q: Will you take my case even if it is a small one?
A: At our firm, we handle personal injury cases of all sizes. We fight
aggressively for our clients, regardless of the size of the potential
settlement. If we represent you, you will see that we truly care about
the outcome of your case and providing you with compassionate care.
Q: How much does it cost for personal injury services?
A: At Laurence A. Silverman, Esq., our clients do not pay any upfront
fees for our legal services. We work on a contingency fee basis, which
means we cover all immediate costs associated with your representation.
We are only reimbursed after we have recovered a favorable verdict or
settlement on your behalf. If our clients’ cases are unsuccessful,
they owe us nothing!
We would be happy to offer you a free case evaluation to discuss the circumstances
of your situation. If you have any other questions, please feel free to
