If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as the result of another individual’s or organization’s misconduct, you may be entitled to compensation.

Since its founding in 1980, the law firm of Jaroslawicz & Jaros has helped thousands of clients recover over $2 billion in damages in personal injury, construction injury, medical malpractice, and insurance-related cases.

We have posted some of our actual case settlements and verdicts on our website and are proud to have had over one-hundred (100) settlements and verdicts in excess of one-million dollars ($1,000,000) for our clients in various cases involving, car accidents, construction site accidents, slips, trips and falls, medical malpractice and various other personal injury cases including the largest verdict in New York of forty-four million dollars ($44,000,000) for an injured construction worker.

When potential clients come into our offices for a free initial consultation, we discuss some basic information with you:

What sort of injury occurred? What sort of losses did the injury cause? Broken fingernails may technically be an injury, but they are not something we typically recommend people file a lawsuit over because there are no medical expenses, lost wages, or other costs stemming from the injury.

Our years of experience mean we have developed an understanding of whether an injury is worth filing a lawsuit over. Potential clients should try to bring along copies of their medical records as this is very helpful in determining whether the injury is serious enough for which to file suit.

Is the injury a direct result of the negligent actions of another individual or organization?

Do you think that the individual or organization that is responsible for your injury has insurance coverage to compensate you for your injuries?

Depending on the answers to these questions, we can usually determine if a claim is viable and what next steps should be taken. It is important to contact an attorney as quickly as possible if you think you might have a case because there is a time limit called a “Statute of Limitations” running in most personal injury cases. If you wait too long to file the case, the Statute of Limitations may mean you will not be able to file a claim.

If you or a loved one were injured in an accident that has resulted in a serious physical injury and are in need of legal assistance, call the experienced lawyers at Jaroslawicz & Jaros to find out if you are entitled to compensation. The attorneys at Jaroslawicz & Jaros are experienced accident lawyers who can help you get the compensation you deserve.

If you’ve been injured you need legal help as you may be facing medical bills and also missing time from work. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds.
