A Queens Personal Injury Lawyer Working Tirelessly for You

Brian J. O’Connor is a native New Yorker who grew up in Brooklyn and Staten Island. Now a father and a husband, he understands the value of community and what it means to serve those who suffer when life takes an unexpected turn. As a result, he has dedicated his career to helping accident victims get back on their feet. If you have been injured in an accident, Brian is a Queens personal injury lawyer who knows how to get results.  

Proudly Serving the People of Queens

With nearly 2.5 million residents, a robust economy, and a diverse population, life in Queens is busy. The largest borough in New York City serves as an important transportation hub—it is home to both JFK and LaGuardia airports. Queens hosts an incredible amount of traffic via ferry, car, bus, and subway every day. Its industries span retail, manufacturing, construction, health care, transportation, and television and film production. In addition, Queens is home to St. John’s University and several other institutions of higher learning. 

With so much going on, accidents are bound to happen, some of which can result in serious, life-changing injuries. When this happens, you need someone on your side—a Queens injury attorney who understands where you live, where you come from, and the challenges you face along the way. At The O’Connor Law Firm, we provide aggressive yet compassionate legal representation to accident victims and their families in Queens and across the New York Metropolitan area.  

Why Do You Need a Queens Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other losses. Unfortunately, pursuing a claim for compensation is often complicated, even when it is obvious what happened and who is at fault. As a result, non-lawyers often find themselves confused by the claim process and ultimately wind up abandoning their claim or settling for far less than their claim is worth. 

A Queens injury attorney can help you in the following ways: 

  • They can gather the evidence you need to support your claim. This includes copies of your medical bills and records, accident reports, photographs, camera footage, and any other evidence that documents your injuries, the cause of your accident, and who should be held accountable. 
  • They can speak on your behalf and handle the correspondence. Dealing with phone calls, emails, and letters can be exhausting, significantly when injured and in pain. Your lawyer can handle the communications so that you can focus on getting better. 
  • They can estimate the value of your claim. For example, if you are injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses. An experienced Queens personal injury lawyer will be able to provide you with a reasonable estimate of the compensation you can pursue. 
  • They can negotiate a settlement of your claim. The claim process begins by submitting your claim to the insurance company for payment. Insurance companies will often respond with a low-ball offer in an attempt to pay as little as possible. However, an experienced attorney who is a tough negotiator will push them to pay your fair compensation. 
  • They can provide you with legal guidance. Your lawyer can help you understand your options, evaluate any offers, and explain how the law applies to your case. Ultimately, your lawyer should help you make an informed decision as to how to proceed at every step in your case. 
  • If your claim can’t be settled, they can pursue legal action. While most cases settle outside of court, sometimes your best option is to go to court if you want fair compensation for your claim. Working from the beginning with a Queens injury attorney, a seasoned litigator, ensures that you will be well-positioned to litigate if necessary. 

If you have been injured and don’t know where to turn, a Queens personal injury lawyer can get you on the road to recovery.
