Severely Injured? Why You Need to Consult an Attorney Now!

When you have been injured as a result of another’s negligence – whether it be a construction accident, a work-related accident, motor vehicle or trucking collision, medical malpractice or anything else – you have rights. You also must act quickly. In addition to choosing an experienced personal injury law firm in New York, it is also crucial that you retain your lawyer as quickly as possible to protect your rights.

Many injury victims do not realize that there are a number of strict time limits imposed by statutes, laws and regulations that can jeopardize their right to recover at all. In most cases the clock begins to tick for these deadlines at the very moment of your injury. If you are seriously hurt and you believe that you may have a case, you should not hesitate. Call the experienced trial lawyers at Block O’Toole & Murphy today. We have the resources, knowledge and ability to analyze your case intelligently and quickly, and take all necessary steps to protect your claims and maximize their value.

There are other reasons that you should retain legal counsel as soon as possible. For one, the evidence necessary to prove your claim may have a limited lifespan. For example, if you are a construction worker injured on the job because of a defective ladder or scaffold, there may be witnesses to be interviewed, photographs to be taken and equipment to be inspected. If you are the victim of medical malpractice, there are likely medical records which must be procured and analyzed in a timely manner. With the passage of time sometimes these records are altered to cover up mistakes or omissions. If you are involved in an automobile or truck collision, witnesses must be interviewed while their recollection is clear and vehicles may need to be examined before they are repaired or destroyed. The more time that passes, the less useful those investigative measures become. In order to identify and preserve the evidence that can ultimately be used to persuade a jury and win your case, you should contact the right attorneys immediately.

At Block O’Toole & Murphy, we pride ourselves on thorough and expert handling of your case from the first day of investigation, through discovery, negotiations, trial and, if necessary, verdict. As soon as we begin work on a case, we call upon the experience we have gained through settling many millions of dollars in cases to form and implement an immediate plan of action. Allow us to start fighting for you by not only calling us, but by calling us right away. It may be the best thing you ever do for your case.
