Tourist Accidents Are Common In New York

As one of the most well-known cities in the world, New York attracts tourists from all over. Last year, more than 50 million people visited the city, 10 million from overseas. Tourists often visit popular spots, which have a great deal of traffic congestion. Often, because of the new sights, sounds and smells, tourists may become distracted. That creates a high potential for accidents and injuries. New York roads are laden with potholes and our streets are full of aggressive drivers. As a result, accidents will happen.

Tourists don't know the laws of New York state, and often don't know what their rights are with respect to bringing a lawsuit in our courts. That is why it makes sense to retain a local lawyer who knows the local laws.

We Can Handle Your Case Over The Phone

First, you can retain a New York lawyer without coming back to New York. We conduct interviews on the phone all the time. We have staff members who speak multiple languages and if we don't, we can always retain an interpreter to speak with you and take down the facts of the case.

You Can Still Obtain Medical Care Elsewhere

Second, you don't need to get your medical treatment in New York — you can treat in your home state or country. If your case settles, you will be sent a check to your home. If your case needs to be litigated, then you might have to return to New York for a deposition or we may be able to arrange for a video deposition from your home.
