HOW MUCH DOES A CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER COST IN NEW YORK?
When you hire a car accident lawyer the client must choose whether they wish to pay the expenses on the file or if they want the lawyer to advance all expenses and disbursements on the case. Should the client select the latter, then the lawyer if successful in recovery or settlement is entitled to 33% of the gross attorney fees, plus reimbursement of his or her expenses paid on the file.

I have been successful in trying and settlements of car accident victims in NYC. One such result was the case Petrus Madito v Farindun A. NORMUKHAMEDOV and SINAI I, INC. , My client was injured when a truck carrying dialysis patients went over the double yellow line, while the driver was presumably texting. Mr. Madito suffered a displaced fracture fragment of the wrist , and three (3) herniated cervical discs and 1 lumbar herniated disc, which impinged on the spinal nerve roots. He was unable to work for approximately 3 years and was limited in returning to work as a taxi driver, due to prolonged sitting. The client was scared to undergo a laminectomy a procedure to remove a herniated disc. The case was mediated where an offer of $80,00 was made. At trial right before the verdict the offer was increased to $200,000. The jury returned a verdict of 1.4 million which was later reduced by the Court to $750,000.
I was assisted at trial by my colleague attorney Steve Halperin Esq.
Over the years in 1994, I once had the highest non-surgical herniated disc case in NYS in the case of Louise Loadholt v Funaway Tours. In that case, my client was a passenger in an Atlantic City bus struck in the rear while on the shoulder of a highway by another bus. The insurance company lawyers blamed Ms. Loadholt's herniated disc on her weight. The jury disagreed and returned a verdict in the amount of $750,000.
