  • Who should I call first when involved in an accident?

    +

    When you are involved in an accident it is common practice to speak to the insurance company of the other parties involved. The adjuster assigned to your claim will be friendly and provide you with great customer service and a sense of compassion. It is very important to remember the goal of the insurance company is to pay out as little as possible for claims.

    This is why it is important to contact us at 516-730-3446 or e-mail us at info@jonkdavislaw.com BEFORE you provide statements to the insurance companies handling the claim for the alleged individuals that caused the accident. An attorney can advise you on what to say to protect the integrity of your claim and help you get the fair payout you deserve.

    Whether your injury was caused due to an environment left in disrepair such as a broken stair step, a lack of cleanliness in the area, or complacent signage to warn of dangers, if possible, always obtain as many photos of the area as possible and speak with witnesses and obtain their contact information for possible testimony at a later date.

  • I fell while shopping at the department store and was injured. Can I sue?

    Handling a lawsuit against a large corporation such as Macy’s, H & M or Home Depot is something that should be done with care. If you were injured by a slip, trip or fall, it is important you seek immediate medical attention. Once you have your injuries documented, the next thing you should do is contact us to discuss your rights and the possibility of compensation for medical bills and lost wages and compensation for your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life! If you can, try to take photos of the area and what specifically caused you to fall as well as speak with witnesses and obtain their contact information and request from the store an accident report.

    Having as much evidence as possible increases the likelihood of a successful outcome.
