Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!

Helping Injury Victims Get the
Compensation They Deserve

When you’re injured in an accident, it can be hard to know where to turn. You need someone who doesn’t just know the law. You need a lawyer who will fight for you to recover the compensation that you need and deserve. For over 35 years, we have represented accident victims and their families to help them maximize their recoveries.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

When you get hurt, your life can be turned upside down. Medical bills pile up. You still have to take care of your regular monthly expenses. What happens if you can’t work? What happens if you can never work again? We provide compassionate care for our clients while ensuring their maximum recovery.

Often insurance companies will contact accident and injury victims and offer quick settlements. These settlements are generally far less than the actual case is worth, failing to take into consideration the full extent of a person’s injuries or inadequately compensating for lost wages and future medical costs.

You should never have to settle for less. Our White Plains personal injury attorneys know how to go after insurance companies and will not hesitate to take your case to trial to get the verdict you deserve.

We take our role as counselors, advocates and trial lawyers seriously. At Injured 914, you are more than just a case; our attorneys listen to your concerns, always keep you updated on your case, and make you a partner in your claim. You and your family are important. By always putting your interests first, we ensure that we are getting you the best possible result you deserve.

Our lawyers are passionate about what they do; for the past 35 years we have been helping accident victims, and we can help you. If you have suffered a serious injury due to another person’s negligence or wrongdoing, they must be held responsible. We are experienced personal injury attorneys with a proven track record.

We will not rest until all responsible parties are held liable. Accident and injury cases can involve complex litigation. Let us help you go after the right people and help you receive the justice and compensation you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are injured because of another person’s negligence or wrongdoing, you might be entitled to compensation. Maximizing the amount you can recover begins with hiring an experienced personal injury attorney. After an accident, make sure that you seek timely medical treatment. The extent of your injuries may not be apparent immediately after an accident. Make sure that you follow through with all appointments and provide documentation to your attorney.

Serious injury is defined by Section 5102(d) of the New York Insurance Code. The most common serious injuries occurring after an accident include dismemberment, fractures, loss or limitation of a body part or function, loss of a fetus, and physical impairment.

If you are involved in a car accident, you may hear of the 90/180 day rule, which refers to the “serious injury” definition laid out in Section 5102(d). According to this rule, a serious injury is one that prevents someone from substantially performing their usual and customary daily activities for at least ninety days of the one hundred eighty days following the accident or injury.

When an injury is so severe that there are permanent repercussions, it is considered catastrophic. In many cases, catastrophic injuries prevent a person from returning to work or enjoying the same quality of life that they had prior to the accident. Catastrophic injuries can require years of medical treatments or rehabilitation.

First and foremost, you should always seek medical treatment immediately after an accident. Even if you are unsure about the nature of your injuries, you should still be examined by a medical professional.

As soon as you are able, you should consult with an experienced injury lawyer who can guide you through the legal process. You only have a limited amount of time to file a claim against a negligent or wrongful party, so it is imperative that you act quickly.

An attorney will conduct an independent investigation of your case, helping to gather all evidence and subpoena any necessary records regarding the incident. They will file the appropriate paperwork with the court to commence the lawsuit. Once the lawsuit is initiated, you will go through several different pretrial phases, including preliminary conferences, discovery, mediation, and trial.

According to Section 214 of New York’s Civil Practice Law & Rules, a person has three (3) years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. There are exceptions to the rule, including under Section 214-a, which requires that actions for medical, dental, or podiatric malpractice be brought within two years and six months.

In addition, certain claims against a municipal or other governmental entity require a “Notice of Claim” to be filed in advance of bringing a lawsuit.  The notice is intended to provide the governmental entity with the opportunity to investigate the claim while witnesses and other evidence is still available.  New York’s General Municipal law Section 50-e requires the Notice of Claim to be filed within ninety (90) days after the claim arises.  The failure to file the notice timely may prevent a subsequent lawsuit from proceeding.  It is always helpful to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to ensure a Notice of Claim is properly filed.

In a claim for personal injury, you may seek both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are those designed to compensate you for out-of-pocket losses such as lost earnings, medical expenses, property damage, and reduced earning potential. Non-economic damages include those awarded for pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Hiring a personal injury attorney is crucial to getting the maximum compensation available in your case. Without the help of a seasoned trial lawyer, you may end up settling for significantly less than your claim is worth. You should never sign anything or accept a settlement before consulting with your attorney.

At Injured 914, our leading injury and accident lawyers will conduct an independent review of your case, working with skilled experts to reconstruct the accident and determine liability. If you have been seriously injured, your life is likely upside down. Our attorneys can help get you the recovery you need to get your life back on track.

Yes. You should always consult an attorney if you are injured at work. Falls are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the workplace. According to the National Safety Council, over 48,000 workers were injured from falls in a single year. The injuries were severe enough to require time off of work.

Injuries from slips and falls, such as damage to the back and spine, can cause years of pain, discomfort and medical bills. Without the help of an attorney, you may not get the recovery you need to cover healthcare costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Injured 914, our leading injury and accident lawyers will conduct an independent review of your case, working with skilled experts to reconstruct the accident and determine liability. If you have been seriously injured, your life is likely upside down. Our attorneys can help get you the recovery you need to get your life back on track.

If you are injured while staying at a resort or hotel, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Injuries related to slips, trips, and falls can be serious and must be addressed immediately. Once you are able, file a report with the hotel and contact an attorney. Hotels have a duty to provide a safe environment for their guests.

In some cases, your injury may be related to a failure to install slip-resistant flooring around a surface that is known to get wet like near a bathroom or pool area. In other instances, an investigation may reveal that the hotel knew about a spill and failed to clean it up, putting guests at risk for injury.

In many cases, yes, an attorney can help you if you were injured at work, and the insurance company is denying your coverage. Insurance companies may look for any reason to deny a person’s coverage.

Common reasons insurance claims get denied include:

  • Failing to file a claim within the statutory time period
  • Disputes over whether the injury was work-related
  • Allegations of fraud
  • Missing or inaccurate paperwork
  • Lack of coverage

Unfortunately, many valid insurance claims get denied. An attorney can help determine whether a party should be held liable for your injuries and how to pursue compensation against them, even if your claim was initially denied.

If you are injured on the job due to unsafe equipment, you need to contact an attorney immediately. Employers have a responsibility to provide a work environment free from hazards, including safe equipment. When they fail to do this, they can be held liable for resulting injuries. Separately, the manufacturer of the unsafe equipment may also be liable for the defective product.

Any time you are injured at a worksite, you should notify your superior, file a report, and seek emergency medical treatment. Your right to compensation can be affected if you fail to follow the proper protocols or do not continue recommended treatment, including rehabilitation and therapy.

It is always in your best interest to consult with a lawyer if you suffer an electrocution injury on the job. An insurance company may try to get you to settle quickly for the least amount of money.
