If you believe you might have a Personal injury or Medical malpractice lawsuit, you should contact us immediately as you may be entitled to a large sum of money.

New York Personal Injury Lawyer Bryan Swerling

You do not have to pay our firm upfront to bring a personal injury or medical malpractice action on your behalf – we will put the money up for you. However, if at any time your case turns into a cash award either via settlement or jury verdict, we will deduct the financing and fee from the cash award. The fee is based on net recovery and therefore if you do not recover money, a legal fee will not be incurred.

It is our job to fight for maximum cash awards for our injured clients and you will find that from the day you contact us, we will give you personalized attention. If you are seriously injured and cannot come into our office, we will visit you at your home or at the hospital. We are also available for telephone consultations in which we will evaluate your case on a preliminary basis. Unfortunately, many people are not informed about their rights and often do not take action when they should.
