common questions asked clients
What to ask an attorney
1. What does a personal injury lawyer do?
A personal injury lawyer represents a person injured due to the negligence of another. Your lawyer should be experienced in handling the various types of personal injury cases, whether a motor vehicle accident, construction site accident, medical malpractice, or from whatever caused your accident. No accident is alike. Each accident requires a thorough investigation by a team of professionals. At Law Office of Natascia Ayers, we utilize investigators, electronic experts, engineers, medical experts, and whatever other expert is needed to thoroughly investigate and prosecute your case. These experts cost a significant amount of money, at no cost to you unless and until we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
2. How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
It costs you nothing up front. The Law Office of Natascia Ayers pays for all experts and litigation costs up front. The costs are explained in detail in the retainer agreement for your representation. It is important to understand that experts and litigation is expensive. The Law Office of Natascia Ayers can afford to pay whatever costs are necessary given the strength and value of your case.
3. What makes my case something you think can be won?
It takes legal experience to know the strengths and weaknesses in each case and to maximize the strengths so that you, as a client, can obtain the most compensation for your injuries and losses. The Law Office of Natascia Ayers will guide you throughout the process, giving your instructions and advise along the way, to ensure the highest possible chance of recovery.
4. How does social media affect my case?
Under New York law, a person or company you sue (a defendant) is entitled to investigate your claims thoroughly and will search your social media accounts to determine if there are messages, videos, or photographs that support or contradict your claims. Just because you have a privacy setting on your social media, does not mean that a defendant will not be entitled to look through your social media. The most recent New York case law supports a defendant's right to obtain information from your social media.
