New York Auto Accident Lawyers
Our firm fights for clients who have suffered physical and emotional injury as the result of an accident with a car, bus, truck, or taxi. These accidents are usually foreseeable and preventable and occur because of a driver’s distraction, negligence, or carelessness.
We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
Car accidents are the leading cause of brain, spinal, orthopedic and neurological injuries. In 2009, 2.2 million people were injured. Victims often face financial burdens such as lost wages, medical bills, and car repair bills, among other expenses. They must also battle government bureaucracy to obtain information about the accident, as well as deal with insurance companies and police reports. All of this can seem overwhelming, but we at the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm are here to help.
In one case, we recovered $2,100,000 during trial for an 80-year old woman who was the passenger in a motor vehicle accident. In another, a $3,222,000 verdict was obtained for a client who jumped in front of a subway train and had his legs amputated below the knees. We were advised by a well-respected judge to settle this case for $90,000, but we fought for our client and he received the compensation he deserved.
