Accidents can happen at any time and in any place, which is why you should have a personal injury attorney licensed in New York and Florida. This is especially important for those snowbirds who are dual-residence clients in New York and Florida, who need to plan for any issues most effectively handled by a law firm knowledgeable about the legal particulars of both states.
In addition, when an accident occurs in a different state from where you reside, it can complicate the claims process. Jurisdiction laws usually require that you file a case in the state where the accident happened. The laws there may be different than in your state, which means you will want to hire an attorney who holds a license in the state where you are addressing the legal issue.
At Lieberman Injury Law, we offer effective personal injury expertise, and our experience in personal injury law in both New York and Florida provides dual-residence clients access to all of the information needed to make an informed decision as to which of the states will offer greater services and planning opportunities. Attorney Jesse Alan Lieberman is a personal injury attorney who was born and raised in New York City and admitted to the New York State Bar and District of Columbia Bar. He was also admitted to the Florida Bar in 2001 and is licensed to practice in all Florida federal courts. He is a member of the Broward County Justice Association, the Broward County Bar Association, the South Palm Beach County Bar Association, and is an EAGLE member of the Florida Justice Association. Jesse is also a proud member of the ‘Million Dollar Advocates Forum,’ which is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States.
Most people don’t think about the legal necessities that will come up whether you are in New York or Florida, because accidents aren’t planned. What most people don’t know is that if a client has a personal injury-related document prepared in one state, such as New York, a doctor or health care facility treating that client in another state, such as Florida, may not honor it. As a law firm with experience and credentials in both New York and Florida, Lieberman Injury LLP advises dual-residence clients on the appropriate documents for both locales.
When You Need A Personal Injury Attorney Licensed in New York and Florida
Personal injury claims are the most frequently filed in NYC and Florida, and the most expensive to resolve. In fact, according to the 2016 annual claims report by the New York City comptroller, personal injury claims there accounted for $620.1 million, or 99 percent of the $629.5 million that was paid out on settled tort claims.
Apparently, personal injury claims in many states are on the rise. Cities across America are experiencing a building boom, a rebound in manufacturing, and a residential renaissance. The dramatic increase in population density has directly affected the number of local personal injury cases and accidents. The building boom has transformed previously empty blocks into the frenzy of construction on commercial and residential buildings. But this activity has come at a sobering cost: in the last two years alone, the number of workers injured and/or killed in construction accidents has surged.
At Lieberman Injury Law, we have seen an increase in construction site injuries and deaths because of work sites guilty of code and safety violations. In the last few years, the number of dog bite claims against homeowners, and the average payout for those claims has been skyrocketing as well. While medical malpractice claims as a whole may be slightly down due to consents, payouts for those claims are up. Simple slip-and-fall accidents are more common than ever and not so simple to handle without the right attorney by your side. These are just a few examples of the many different kinds of personal injury claims in both New York and Florida, which require prompt and deliberate legal representation.
Our team of personal injury attorneys at Lieberman Injury Law have years of combined litigation experience and a track record of success in fighting for the rights of accident victims. We have noticed that the first mistake personal injury victims of any accident make is hesitating to contact legal representation right away. In a world so filled with unknowns and surprising accidents lurking around each corner, it’s nice to know that someone is on your side and ready to help you find the answers you seek.
Lieberman Injury Law: Your Personal Injury Attorney
What you don’t know and don’t do can actually hurt you! If you’ve been seriously injured, you will need an experienced accident attorney to negotiate a fair settlement, or to file a lawsuit on your behalf. Being well-informed about how personal injury laws affect claims can help you avoid pitfalls like missed deadlines and unrealistic expectations. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Lieberman Injury Law are more than familiar with both New York State and Florida laws and are therefore valuable partners to have through the process.
Filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit quickly is important because, under New York and Florida law, there are statutes of limitation that dictate how long a person has to file a lawsuit for personal injury claims, resulting in compensation. If that limit of time passes, the person who may have been injured no longer has any legal right to file any sort of claim. This is why you need to retain a knowledgeable New York and Florida personal injury attorney as quickly as possible after an accident.
Do not hesitate to contact Lieberman Injury Law for a free consultation as early as possible after your accident. We can come to meet with you in your home, or even at the hospital, to discuss the circumstances of your accident and to determine how much you are entitled to receive in compensation for your injuries. We understand what a challenging and stressful experience this may be for you and your family, and will do everything we can to guide you through the process of claiming a settlement with minimum difficulty and delay.
