How We Work to Build You a Strong Legal Case
Looking at a photo of the crash site is not enough to predict the severity of your auto accident injury. The New York car accident lawyers at De Caro & Kaplen, LLP dig deep to understand how the injuries you sustained will affect the quality of your life now, and in the future. We work with accident reconstruction experts, treating physicians, medical experts, and other professionals to determine how and why your injury took place—and how it could have been prevented.
We also retain qualified economists and life care planners to assist us in understanding and proving the degree of harm and loss suffered. This process, designed to maximize your compensation to the fullest extent possible, takes into account:
- Medical expenses
- Present and future loss of income
- Emotional trauma and related treatment/expenses
- The necessity for future medical and rehabilitation services
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of the pleasures and pursuits of life
