Do I have a personal injury case?

If you suffered injuries as a result of someone else’s acts or negligence, you may have a personal injury case.

To determine whether you have a viable claim, you should ask yourself:

  1. Did I suffer a personal injury?

    This includes physical, mental and emotional injuries caused by the accident.

  2. Were my injuries caused by someone else’s acts or negligence?

    This includes actual people or entities.

    A discussion of negligence can be found here.

  3. Did I suffer damages?

    These include economic and non-economic losses that you suffered as a result of the accident.

    For example: medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.

If you, or a loved one, were injured as a result of someone else’s acts or negligence, contact our Buffalo, New York top rated personal injury lawyers today for a free consultation. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Do I need a lawyer for my personal injury case?

Yes! There are strict time deadlines for filing personal injury claims in New York—sometimes as little as 90 days. Therefore, it is important that you contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. today at 716-839-3939 to preserve your rights.

The insurance company offered me money for my injuries. Do I still need a lawyer?

The interests of the insurance company are often not in line with your own interests. An offer of money from an insurance company might mean quick money for you now, but it could have serious consequences in the future if you are out of work or require further medical care due to your injuries. Once you sign a release of claims in exchange for the money the insurance company offered you, you will no longer be able to seek compensation for your injuries—even if those injuries become more serious with time.

Each case is different, but Jed Dietrich, Esq. and his highly skilled team of personal injury lawyers in Buffalo, New York can help ensure that you are making a fully informed decision. We will keep you informed about your rights and the compensation that you are entitled to.

The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. will fully investigate your claim and fight the insurance companies to get you the best result possible. Contact our office today at 716-839-3939 for your free consultation.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

Every case is different. However, to assess the value of a personal injury case, lawyers, insurance companies and juries often consider:

  1. The diagnosis and the extent of your injuries;

  2. Whether your injuries are permanent;

  3. The medical treatment and pain and suffering that resulted from the accident;

  4. How much time you have missed from work;

  5. Whether you suffered a loss of enjoyment of life as a result of the physical or mental anguish suffered; and

  6. Whether your own acts or negligence were a contributing factor to your injuries.

What should I do if I was injured in an accident?
  1. Report the incident to the police or other trusted authority—preferably in writing;

  2. Seek medical treatment as soon as possible;

  3. Identify and collect contact information of all witnesses;

  4. Take cell phone videos and photographs of the location of the injury and any injuries that resulted;

  5. Write down as much information about the accident as possible, including the date, time, weather and location; and

  6. Contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. immediately for top rated personal injury representation in Buffalo, New York.

Can I call for a free consultation even if my injuries are minor? What if I have prior injuries that were worsened because of my accident?

Yes! Often people involved in accidents do not experience pain immediately following an accident due to their age or physical condition. Additionally, the rush of adrenaline that you experience after an accident can block the sensation of pain and you may be more hurt than you initially realize. You may be entitled to compensation for injuries that exist immediately following or that develop some time after an accident.

Information regarding the types of injuries that people commonly suffer after an accident can be found here.

Additionally, if you have injuries that pre-date your current accident, but they were irritated, aggravated or worsened, you may be entitled to compensation.

What should I bring with me to my free consultation with the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.?

You should bring any documents in your possession that are related to your accident or bodily injuries. This may include:

  1. Driver’s license and medical insurance cards;

  2. A copy of the police report or incident report;

  3. A copy of your automobile insurance declaration page;

  4. An estimate of damages to your vehicle;

  5. Photographs of your automobile and/or the scene of the accident;

  6. Photographs of your injuries, including scarring, bruising and scabbing;

  7. Any correspondence pertaining to the accident from your own or the defendant’s insurance company;

  8. Medical records pertaining to treatment for your injuries; and

  9. Disability notes if you have been written out of work.

What are my responsibilities as a client of the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.?

At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C., we strive to provide the highest level of personal injury service in Buffalo, New York and to reduce the stress that often follows an accident. In return, we ask that you:

  1. Communicate with our office regularly.

    Every week, our staff goes through each and every client’s file to make sure that we have had contact with them in the past month by phone, e-mail, mail or text message. We constantly monitor each client’s condition, medical treatment and the impact the accident has had on his or her life. Frequent communication with our office will help us get you the best result possible.

  2. Be open and honest with us.

    Communications between a lawyer and a client are confidential. Therefore, it is important that you communicate to us all of the relevant information regarding your accident and injuries, including any previous accidents or injuries that you may have had. It is much better that we know about the things that might look “bad” for your case now, rather than being caught by surprise as the case progresses. The defense will likely find out anyways, so it is better that we know first.

  3. Attend your doctor’s appointments.

    Although our lawyers are skilled at understanding medical records, we are not doctors. Therefore, it is important that you cooperate with your doctors and continue to seek treatment as needed. This will not only help you to recover from your accident, but also will provide documentation to prove the extent of your injuries.
