Sayville Personal Injury Attorney
Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Sayville, NY
If you have been injured in an accident that is the direct result of someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, then you may be entitled to financial compensation. Accidents happen all the time, but you should never be left out of pocket for something that could have been avoided if another individual or company had simply been more attentive.
Make sure you get the compensation that you deserve – get in touch with Palermo Law today.
Slips, Trips, and Falls
One of the most common types of incidents is the slip, trip, and fall. These can be the result of a range of factors, including:
- Uncleared snow/ice
- Uneven or poorly maintained flooring
- Wet floors
- Damaged stairs
The types of injuries that can be sustained in these accidents can be very serious, but it can be difficult to access compensation. That is why you need an experienced Sayville personal injury lawyer to help you – we know what is needed to prove that someone else is at fault for your incident, and we can help you to get your life back to normal.
Car accidents are also very common. The streets of Sayville are increasingly busy, and any time you take to the road, you run the risk of being involved in a car accident. This can be the result of road rage, poorly maintained vehicles, distraction (using a mobile phone, for example), or not obeying road signs, for example – the end result is the same: injury, missed work, damaged vehicles.
To make sure that you are able to access the maximum amount of compensation, you need to use the services of an experienced car accident lawyer like the ones at Palermo Law. We will help you to file the relevant insurance claims, collect evidence from the accident (police reports, witness statements, etc.), and deal with the opposing party’s insurance and legal team.
Injury at Work
All employers in New York state are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and this is the first source of financial assistance for you if you have been injured while at work. Typically, this will cover your medical bills and some of your missed wages, and it should be applied for through your employer.
In some circumstances, however, there is additional compensation available to you: specifically, when the incident was the result of the negligence of a third party (not you or your employer). This can include delivery personnel who tripped on the premises they were delivering to, machine operators injured due to poorly made products, and individuals who trip and fall at work when the site is owned by someone other than the employer.
If you have been injured at work, and you believe that there is someone other than your employer at fault, then you should get in touch with Palermo Law. We will discuss your case with you and build a strategy to ensure that you receive the compensation that you need and deserve.
How Much Compensation Can You Expect
The compensation that you can expect differs on a case-by-case basis. Factors such as medical bills, missed work, and damaged property can be calculated with relative ease; other effects such as pain and suffering and diminished capacity can be harder to determine. This can include you being unable to enjoy your hobbies anymore, for example, and the dollar value for that is not explicit.
This is one of the best reasons for you to engage with a Sayville personal injury lawyer like the ones at Palermo Law – we have dealt with so many cases that we can estimate with some accuracy how much a jury would be likely to award you. This means that we can negotiate on your behalf and build a case that centers around getting the maximum compensation, without running the risk of leaving any money on the table.
At Palermo Law, we prepare every case for trial. More often than not, things do not progress that far and we are able to secure your compensation at the negotiation stage. However, the fact that we are ready and willing to go to court means that if we feel the offer being made pre-trial is not good enough, we can reject it and make sure that you get the maximum amount possible.

The sooner you get in touch, the sooner that we can start to work on your case. You can be sure that as soon as your accident occurred, the insurance company for the other party started to take steps to diminish any potential claim, or even deny it outright. It is only fair that you have your own team working to protect and defend your interests. There are also filing deadlines and statutes of limitation that need to be met, otherwise you may miss your chance to get compensated entirely.
