At the Law Offices of Joel Kofsky, we represent victims of any type of accident. Be it slip and fall, burn accidents, car accidents, workplace accidents, or medical malpractice, our law offices can help you begin your journey to physical, emotional, and financially recovery.
Studies report that there are around 129 million visits to emergency rooms each year. Of that 129 million, 17% are related to injuries sustained from an accident. And, approximately 50% of those injuries happen to victims under that age of 30.
So if you are a victim of an accident in your prime, you need help to ensure that you are compensated for the rest of your life. If you are over 30 and you’ve been injured in an accident, you need help to make sure that the work you’ve done to begin and sustain your life is not all thrown at medical bills.
Regardless of how old you are and what type of accident you’ve suffered, you need the right attorney on your side to see you through your recovery journey.
Things to Consider if You’ve Been in an Accident
If you’ve been injured, you have a lot to think about. First of all, you have to consider your recovery.
- How long will you be off work?
- How will you pay your bills while you are recovering?
- How will you get to your doctors’ appointments?
- Will they hold your job for you?
Then of course, you have to consider the long term.
- What if I can’t go back to work?
- Will I be able to perform my job the same way I did before?
- Will I need assistance to live a normal life?
- Will there be any long-term damage?
- Will my quality of life change?
But the biggest question you should be asking yourself following any type of accident is, “Can I trust the insurance companies?” And, the answer to that is very simple—NO!

Why do I need an attorney?
Physical scars and excess stress always accompany accidents. But, stress and scars are not the biggest reason that you need legal representation after an accident. The rising cost of medical treatment is nothing to take lightly. If you are not aptly compensated after forgoing an accident of any type, you can set yourself back years—financially speaking.
You have not spent your life up to this point working or educating yourself to work just so you can pay off medical bills. You need an attorney who is familiar with insurance companies and settlements to ensure you get compensated suitably so that you can continue your life after you suffer an injury.
What do I do if I want to file an injury claim?
There’s no one-size fits all approach to filing a legal claim after an accident. But, there are a few things you need to consider.
- Document everything
- Take photographs
- Preserve evidence
- Make notes of conversations and date them
- Locate witnesses
- Note any and all losses
The Bottom Line
Any way you want to look at it, if you’ve suffered any type of accident, you need an attorney. Do not try to deal with insurance companies on your own.
