Our Medical Advantage

The Edelman & Edelman Medical Advantage

There are two essential components to winning a personal injury case. The first is establishing liability on the part of the negligent parties. The second is proving the full extent of the victim’s injuries. Insurance companies aggressively fight on both aspects in an effort to limit their exposure to a large settlement. Once liability has been established, however, the larger concern becomes obtaining maximum compensation for your injuries.

In too many cases, lawyers will pursue compensation for a given type of injury without consideration for the symptoms the victim is experiencing. For example, if a client has an ankle injury that continues to worsen over time, most lawyers will order an X-ray and proceed on the assumption that it is a sprain if there is no evidence to the contrary. If the victim has suffered an injury that an X-ray can’t see but will result in lifelong complications if it is left untreated, however, how do you find out what is actually going on?

These are the types of questions you want your attorney to be asking. However, not all attorneys have the experience or knowledge to know what questions to ask.

At the New York City law firm of Edelman & Edelman, P.C., we obtain superior results for injury victims. Our founding attorney, Martin Edelman, has been an astute learner of medicine since he began practicing law nearly 40 years ago.

We find the experts who are doing the cutting-edge work related to your injuries and using the most recent technology to identify the precise type of injury you have suffered and the treatment you will require to make a complete recovery.
