A personal injury lawyer can help assist you in receiving compensation for damages suffered as a result of someone else's negligence. We deal with the insurance company and the legal proceedings so that you can focus on your recovery. If you have been injured in an incident for which you are not at fault, the best time to take action is now.
Your injury may have occurred while you were a vehicle occupant, pedestrian, a guest in a business, or some other incident. It is important that you know your rights. You should speak to a lawyer with Villani & Company as soon as possible. We provide free initial consultations and will often work on a contingency fee agreement, so we only get paid if you do.
If you have been injured in a hit and run, it is very important that you take immediate steps to try to determine the identity of the driver who hit you. This means obtaining the names and phone numbers of any witnesses, placing an ad in the paper, notifying the police and placing posters asking for witnesses at the site of the accident.
For most injury incidents, it is important that you commence a court action within two years of the date of the accident. Not doing so may extinguish your claim. Some accidents have shorter time limitations.
