  • What is a personal injury lawsuit?
    A personal injury lawsuit is a legal dispute that arises when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. The responsible person’s insurance company will typically pay money to the injured person for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other ongoing medical expenses.
  • Do I need a lawyer to file a personal injury lawsuit?
    While you are not required to have a lawyer to file a personal injury lawsuit, navigating the legal system and negotiating with insurance companies can be complex. Our experienced personal injury lawyers at Newman & Newman can help you understand your rights, assess the value of your claim, and advocate on your behalf to ensure you receive fair compensation.
  • How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?
    The time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit, known as the statute of limitations, varies by state. It typically ranges from one to four years from the date of the injury. It’s crucial to file your lawsuit within this period, or you may be barred from taking legal action.
  • How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
    You may have a personal injury case if you've been hurt due to someone else's negligence or wrongful action. Common types of personal injury claims include car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and workplace injuries. Consulting with our personal injury attorneys here at Newman & Newman, we can help you determine if you have a viable case.
  • What can I recover in a personal injury lawsuit?
    In a personal injury lawsuit, damages are paid to the injured person by the person or company found to be legally responsible for the accident. Damages may include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and loss of future earning capacity. Punitive damages may also be awarded in cases of gross negligence.
  • What is considered a wrongful death?
    A wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. It can arise from various situations like car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace hazards, or even criminal activities. The law allows the deceased's estate or family members to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their loss.
  • What specific services does Newman & Newman offer for wrongful death cases?
    Newman & Newman is committed to providing compassionate and expert legal representation for families who have suffered the loss of a loved one due to wrongful death. Our firm offers a range of services specifically tailored to wrongful death cases, including thorough investigation and analysis of the circumstances surrounding the death, identifying liable parties, pursuing compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, and loss of income, and seeking justice through litigation if necessary. We understand the emotional and financial impact of wrongful death and strive to support our clients throughout the legal process while aggressively advocating for their rights and the memory of their loved one.
  • What can a personal injury attorney do in the case of wrongful death?
    A personal injury attorney at Newman & Newman can represent the family members of the deceased in a wrongful death case. We understand that losing a loved one due to someone else's negligence or misconduct is incredibly difficult, and we are here to provide compassionate and dedicated legal support during this challenging time. Our attorneys can help the family seek compensation for medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, and emotional pain and suffering. We will also work to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions through negotiation or litigation.

  • What are the steps involved in filing a wrongful death lawsuit with Newman & Newman?
    A wrongful death lawsuit, which occurs when a person dies due to the legal fault of another person or entity, requires careful navigation of the legal system. At Newman & Newman, our experienced attorneys will first gather all necessary evidence related to the case, which may include medical records, police reports, and witness statements. Next, we will work closely with the family of the deceased to file the necessary paperwork and meet any statute of limitations deadlines.

Whether through negotiation or litigation, our goal is to secure justice and fair compensation for the devastating loss of a loved one.
  • What kind of damages can be recovered?
    Damages in a wrongful death lawsuit can include both economic and non-economic losses. Economic damages cover measurable losses like funeral expenses, medical bills related to the deceased's final illness or injury, and lost income or support. Non-economic damages refer to more subjective losses, such as emotional distress, loss of companionship, and the pain and suffering endured by the deceased before their death.
  • Can I claim compensation for a pedestrian accident?
    Yes, if you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries and related expenses. As personal injury attorneys at Newman & Newman, we specialize in representing pedestrian accident victims and helping them navigate the legal process to seek the compensation they deserve. Our experienced team will work closely with you to gather evidence, build a strong case, and advocate for your rights in settlement negotiations or in court. It's important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after the accident to protect your rights and increase the chances of a successful claim.
  • What steps should I immediately take following a pedestrian accident?
    Following a pedestrian accident, your first priority should always be your physical well-being. Seek medical attention immediately if you have been injured. If possible, gather as much information as you can at the scene of the accident, including the contact information of any witnesses, and take photographs of the accident location and any visible injuries. It is also important to file a police report and to not give any statements to insurance companies until you have sought legal advice. Contact our experienced team at Newman & Newman as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected and to receive the guidance and support you need during this challenging time.
  • Should I negotiate with the other person's insurance company by myself?
    While you might be contacted by the other person's insurance company following a pedestrian accident, navigating these negotiations on your own can be challenging and may result in a lower compensation than you deserve. Insurance companies often aim to minimize payouts. Therefore, it's advisable to seek representation from our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers who can handle communications and negotiations on your behalf, ensuring that your rights are protected and you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
  • How do I know if I have a legal case in a pedestrian accident?
    If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, there are several factors to consider when determining if you have a legal case. These include whether the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, if you sustained injuries as a result of the accident, and if there is evidence to support your claim. At Newman & Newman, we specialize in personal injury cases, including those involving pedestrian accidents. Our team of experienced attorneys can help you assess the details of your situation and determine if you have a viable legal case.
  • Who is liable for a pedestrian accident?
    In the case of a pedestrian accident, liability can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the accident. Factors such as the actions of the pedestrian, the driver involved, and any third parties may all play a role in determining liability. At Newman & Newman, we specialize in personal injury cases, including pedestrian accidents. Our experienced attorneys will work to thoroughly investigate the accident, gather evidence, and determine liability. Whether it's a distracted driver, a poorly designed crosswalk, or any other contributing factors, we will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
  • What makes a vehicle eligible for Lemon Law protection?
    For a vehicle to fall under the protection of Lemon Laws, several criteria must be met. The vehicle must manifest a considerable defect covered by the manufacturer's warranty, with the problem first appearing within a certain period or mileage following the vehicle's purchase or lease. This defect should remain unresolved despite multiple efforts to repair it by the manufacturer or an authorized dealer. Additionally, the vehicle must have been out of service for repairs for a total period exceeding a predefined number of days, underlining the severity of the defect's impact. Central to a vehicle's qualification is that the defect significantly impairs its use, value, or safety, a criterion that varies by state Lemon Laws.
  • Can I file a claim for a used car?
    Yes, some states extend Lemon Law protections to used vehicles, though the criteria and coverage can vary significantly from those for new vehicles. Check your state's specifics regarding used vehicles.
  • What if my claim is denied?
    If your Lemon Law claim is denied, you might still have options, including arbitration, mediation, or filing a lawsuit. The specifics can vary by state and the terms of your warranty. Our attorneys can provide guidance on the best course of action.
  • What is the Lemon Law, and how does it relate to personal injury cases?
    The Lemon Law is a statute that provides protection to consumers who purchase or lease defective vehicles, often referred to as "lemons." If you have experienced significant issues with a vehicle that have not been successfully repaired by the manufacturer or dealership, you may be entitled to legal recourse under the Lemon Law. While the Lemon Law specifically pertains to defective vehicles, it can also intersect with personal injury cases if the defects in the vehicle directly contribute to an accident or injury. If you have been injured due to a vehicle malfunction or defect, Newman & Newman can provide expertise in navigating the intersection of personal injury law and Lemon Law to help you seek rightful compensation for your injuries. Our experienced attorneys understand the complexities of both Lemon Law and personal injury cases, and can provide the guidance and representation you need to pursue a successful claim.
  • What are common issues that lead to Lemon Law claims?
    Lemon Law claims often arise from persistent and significant vehicle defects that directly impact drivability, safety, and overall functionality. These include ongoing engine or transmission problems, electrical system glitches, especially those concerning the car's onboard computer, and continual brake issues posing safety risks. Other frequent causes encompass steering or suspension troubles making the car hard to control, recurring air conditioning or heating system failures, persistent water leaks after multiple repair attempts, and serious paint or body flaws not corrected to the owner's satisfaction. Essentially, any problem that substantially hinders the vehicle's use, value, or safety can potentially lead to a Lemon Law claim.
  • Against whom can an elder abuse lawsuit be filed?
    An elder abuse lawsuit can be filed against the individual perpetrator of the abuse. Additionally, if the abuse occurred within an institutional setting, such as a hospital, church, or senior living facility, the organization itself may also be liable, especially if it failed to take reasonable steps to prevent abuse or negligently hired or supervised the perpetrator.
  • How does Newman & Newman handle cases of elder abuse?

At Newman & Newman, we understand the sensitive nature of elder abuse cases and prioritize the confidentiality of our clients. We take every necessary step to ensure that our clients' personal information and legal matters are kept private and secure.
  • What constitutes elder abuse in a legal context?
    Elder abuse, in legal terms, encompasses a wide range of wrongful acts that result in harm or potential harm to an elderly adult. This includes physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. The legal definition can vary by jurisdiction, but it fundamentally revolves around actions or failures to act that result in injury, potential injury, or significant risk of harm to an elderly person.
  • Who can file a lawsuit for elder abuse?
    In cases of elder abuse, a lawsuit can be filed by the victim themselves, their legal guardian, or a family member acting on behalf of the victim. Whether the abuse occurred in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or at the hands of a caregiver, our team is here to advocate for the rights of elderly individuals and pursue the compensation they deserve.

    It is not recommended to negotiate with the other party involved in a motorcycle accident without the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. At Newman & Newman, we understand the complexities of personal injury cases and the tactics insurance companies often use to minimize compensation. Attempting to negotiate on your own could result in you receiving less than you deserve, or saying things that may be used against you later on. Our team of skilled personal injury lawyers is well-versed in advocating for the rights of motorcycle accident victims, handling negotiations, and ensuring you receive fair and just compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
  • What remedies are available for a motorcycle accident?

  • What should I do immediately after a motorcycle accident?
    After a motorcycle accident, there are several crucial steps to take. First, ensure that everyone involved in the accident is safe and seek medical attention for any injuries. It is also important to contact the police and file a report, as well as exchange information with the other parties involved. Additionally, take photos of the accident scene, including the vehicles, any visible injuries, and road conditions. It is important to gather contact information from any witnesses as well.

  • What is a slip and fall accident?

    The time limit, or statute of limitations, for filing a slip and fall claim varies by state. It is imperative to act quickly to ensure that your claim is filed within the legal time frame. Missing this deadline can disqualify you from receiving compensation.
  • Who is liable for a slip and fall accident?
    Liability in a slip and fall case often hinges on whether the property owner or occupier acted negligently by failing to ensure the safety of the premises. If it's determined that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous condition and neglected to address it, they could be held responsible for the injuries sustained.
  • What should I do after a slip and fall accident?
    After a slip and fall accident, it's essential to seek medical attention for your injuries. Then, if possible, document the scene of the accident by taking photos of the hazardous condition and collecting contact information from witnesses. Lastly, consider consulting with our personal injury attorneys here at Newman & Newman to discuss your legal options.
  • Can I claim compensation if I'm somewhat at fault for the vehicle accident?
    Yes, you might still be eligible for compensation under the comparative negligence rule, which allows for the possibility of recovering damages even if you're partially at fault. However, your compensation might be reduced by your percentage of fault in the accident.
  • Who will cover the medical bills for my injuries?
    Typically, the at-fault driver's insurance is expected to cover your medical expenses. However, the reality can be complex, depending on insurance policies and the accident details. We at Newman & Newman can help negotiate with insurance companies to strive for coverage of your medical costs.
  • I feel fine after the accident. Should I still see a doctor?
    Absolutely. Injuries from vehicle accidents, such as whiplash, may not be immediately evident. It's vital to see a healthcare provider as soon as possible to ensure any hidden injuries are treated and documented. These records could be critical to your case.
  • How soon after the accident should I contact a lawyer?

For personalized advice and representation, reach out to Newman & Newman. Our team is dedicated to advocating for the rights of workers injured on the job.
  • Can I sue my employer for a workplace injury?
    In most cases, workers' compensation laws prohibit lawsuits against employers for workplace injuries. However, there are exceptions. If your employer intentionally caused your injury, or if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance when required to do so, you might have grounds for a lawsuit. Every situation is unique, so consulting with our attorneys can provide clarity.
  • What steps should I take if I'm injured at work?
    Immediately report the injury to your supervisor or employer. Depending on your state, there may be a limited window to report the injury to receive workers' compensation benefits. Seek medical treatment promptly and ensure that the medical provider understands that your injury is work-related. Lastly, consider consulting with our attorneys to understand your rights and ensure proper handling of your claim.
  • What is workers’ compensation, and how does it work?
    Workers' compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment. It is designed to eliminate the need for litigation by providing a direct path to benefits. However, by accepting workers' compensation, employees typically forfeit the right to sue their employer.
