Since 1999, New Yorkers have been turning to the catastrophic injury lawyers at Frekhtman & Associates to help them recover maximum compensation. Specializing in serious and catastrophic injury litigation, the our law firm works tirelessly to build the strongest case possible to present to a jury achieving top verdicts and settlements.
According to the New York State Department of Health, injuries constitute the main cause of death for New Yorkers aged 1-34. Not only this, but they are also among the top causes of death in other age groups.
Actually, up to 7,000 New Yorkers die every year because of injuries. This is something our New York City serious injury lawyers are aware of, and that’s why they try their best to make sure the victims in such situations receive the compensation they deserve.
Even more, the hospitalization rate for injury cases is approximately around 823 for every 100,000 people, which totals up to almost 1% of the entire city’s population. And in a large place like New York City, this is not something to be taken lightly.
What do I need to know about catastrophic injuries in New York City?
And they do that by helping you understand how the legal process works for catastrophic injuries. For instance, many New Yorkers don’t realize that they have exactly 3 years since the accident date to file a lawsuit against those who are at fault.
That might sound like enough time, but the legal system is not always as speedy as we wish it were. Postponing or simply forgetting about going to court is usually one of the main causes why some New Yorkers lose personal injury cases.

Once we accept your case, we will start working on it immediately. We prepare each client matter for trial with diligence and precision.
The legal process of a catastrophic injury matter is complex but a very brief outline is as follows:
Summons and Complaint (the Lawsuit is filed)
Answer (Defendant’s Insurance Company submits a written Answer to the Complaint)
Preliminary Conference (meeting with the judge to set up a scheduling Order)
Written Discovery Exchanged (medical records, accident reports, employment records, etc.)
Depositions – Question and Answer sessions with all parties to the case. The key issues in an Accident or Injury case are 1) Liability: Who is at fault 2) Damages: Proof of Medical Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Economic Damages
Note of Issue (certifying all discovery has been completed and the case is trial-ready)
Trial (selecting a jury – voire dire. Commencing the trial before a judge and jury)
Our firm prepares our clients thoroughly. At trial, we offer the strongest possible presentation of liability and damages so that the jury will return a verdict awarding maximum compensation. For a free consultation, call us at (866) ATTY-LAW or fill out the ‘Contact Us’ form at the right.
When the time limit passes, the New York Court will refuse to hear your complaint, and you won’t be entitled to any compensation. Naturally, in your injured state, it’s expected that you won’t be eager to file lawsuits and deal with legal procedures.
But our New York City serious injury lawyers are more than happy to do it for you.
