Do You Have A Case?
Personal injury law is based on the concept of negligence, meaning that someone either acted carelessly or failed to do something they should have under the circumstances. More specifically, in New York, a personal injury victim must prove the following:
This means the at-fault party (defendant) owed the injury victim (plaintiff) a responsibility to avoid any conduct that could foreseeably harm others. As a basic example, drivers owe a duty to other drivers and pedestrians to operate their motor vehicles safely and obey all traffic laws.
The plaintiff must have suffered losses such as physical injury, disability, financial expenses or mental anguish. Examples of damages include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Punitive damages may be imposed on the at-fault party for particularly reckless or malicious conduct.
The breach must be a cause of injury to the victim. In New York, this means the defendant’s negligent actions were a substantial factor in causing harm to the plaintiff. Establishing causation can be difficult when multiple at-fault parties are involved.
A breach is a violation of the duty of care. It may be evidenced by carelessness, failure to do something the law requires, or even intentional actions. In a personal injury lawsuit, this element is often hotly disputed between the parties.

What Makes Miller, Montiel & Strano, P.C. Different?
We know that you have your choice of Long Island personal injury law firms. We also know that while experience with personal injury law is a must, it’s not the only factor you’re looking for. If you’re like most of our clients, you’re probably unsure of what to do after suffering a personal injury. You may even be a little apprehensive.
Some injury victims are reluctant to involve an attorney for fear that the lawyer won’t care. Sadly, many lawyers don’t return phone calls or even know who their clients are. Paralegals run their cases, and they’re lucky to see any sort of resolution in their favor.
That’s not how we treat our clients. For one, our firm is selective about the cases it takes. If we don’t believe we can give you 100% of what you deserve as a client, we won’t represent you. Also, every case is handled by a partner of the firm, and you have the same attorney from the beginning to the end of your case. We don’t simply pass your file off to the paralegal. You get to know us because we are proactive and we make sure to keep you informed about your case. Not only do we return phone calls, but we also reach out to the client to provide frequent updates and request information. Our personal injury attorneys also make home and hospital visits and take calls 24/7.
