We Go All In — And Don’t Stop There

We do not accept standard answers to complex questions. We dig deep for the truth and work hard to ensure that all negligent parties are held accountable for the harm you have suffered. Other lawyers have told us we go far beyond what they would do in search of victory, but we don’t know how to do it any other way. You may not know it yet, but you’re lookin’ at your lawyers.

How Can We Help?

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of a person or business, you likely have many questions about your legal rights. At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., our attorneys have the knowledge and insight needed to answer all your questions. 

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

The statute of limitations for many personal injury claims in New York is three years, but that time limit can be significantly shorter in certain situations, including when the case involves negligence by a government employee. Don’t wait until it is too late. Contact us right away to learn how long you have to file your personal injury claim.

What should I do after suffering a serious personal injury?

Whether your personal injury was caused by a motor vehicle accident, a bike crash, a defective/dangerous product or anything in between, there are four important steps you should consider:
  1. Seek necessary medical attention;
  2. Call 911, whether you need police or an ambulance;
  3. Gather evidence and information, including photos of the injury/accident and names/contact information of any witnesses; and
  4. Contact one of our attorneys to learn your legal rights.

What should I NOT do after suffering a serious personal injury?

First, DO NOT forget to complete the four steps already mentioned:

  1. Get necessary medical help for your personal injury;
  2. Call 911;
  3. Gather evidence; and
  4. Contact an attorney.

In addition, you should never admit fault or speak to the other side, including the other party’s insurance company or their lawyer. They will use what you say against you, so have your own personal injury lawyer communicate on your behalf. Lastly, never accept a settlement offer for your injury without first discussing it with an attorney.

What are the most common causes of construction accidents?

Otherwise known as the “Fatal Four,” these few construction hazards cause well over half of all fatal construction accidents every year:

  1. Falls from heights;
  2. Hit/struck by objects;
  3. Caught-between/in accidents; and
  4. Electrocution.

What is New York's Scaffolding Law, and why is it important?

This law requires all property owners and general contractors to provide construction workers with proper safety equipment — including scaffolding — when work is being done to a building. If they fail to do this and a worker is injured, the owner or contractor will be legally liable. In many cases, this law provides injured construction workers with the most effective legal remedy.
