How Much is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

The Law Office of David S. Harris works diligently to win the maximum compensation for clients suffering from personal injury or wrongful death. We consider both your immediate, measurable losses, such as medical expenses and lost income, as well as immeasurable costs such as damages for PTSD and future pain and suffering.

Our experienced personal injury attorneys will generally attempt to quickly settle your claim while staunchly advocating for the highest financial payout possible.  We understand that lengthy courtroom battles not only delay recovery of medical expenses and lost income, but are emotionally and financially costly in their own right.  


However, it is not uncommon to encounter insurance companies and big businesses attempting to escape accountability by denying legally substantiated claims. These instances demand litigation, and we stand prepared to skillfully and aggressively argue for the compensation you deserve.


For a comprehensive case review, including potential financial awards, contact an experienced New York attorney at the Law Office of David S. Harris today.
