You need the help of an experienced catastrophic injury attorney who works with the right experts, including medical experts, life care planners, and others, to win the full compensation that you and your family will need to pay for all your care and other needs for the rest of your life. In New York, personal injury attorney Eric R. Bernstein can help.
Full Compensation for Brain and Spine Injuries
You cannot rely on the insurance company to pay fairly for your claim, even if the insurance company’s offer sounds like a lot of money. And you cannot afford to put your future in jeopardy by accepting less than you need. You will not be able to go back and demand more when you discover that you did not get enough to cover your life-time costs. Always talk to an experience catastrophic injury attorney before signing anything or accepting money from the insurance company.
Even when faced with overwhelming initial medical bills, most families greatly underestimate the long-term costs of brain and spinal cord injuries. At the Law Offices of Eric R. Bernstein, P.C., we work with professionals such as medical experts, life care planners, and economists to calculate and prove the full value of your claim.
