Why You Need An Attorney To Handle Your Car Accident Case
You may think that you have an open-and-shut personal injury case. However, insurance companies will do everything possible to complicate, delay and prolong the claims process. They will not hesitate to use tactics that encourage you to make mistakes that significantly reduce the payout you receive.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident on Long Island or in the greater New York City area, working with an experienced personal injury attorney can make all the difference. At the Law Office of Steven Shulman, we are intimately aware of the games insurance companies and their lawyers play with crash victims. We’re ready to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Our principal attorney, Steve Shulman, has successfully resolved countless car accident cases. He uses this insight to build strong claims from day one.
When you hire Steve, you benefit from his decades of personal injury experience. As your advocate, he will move quickly to:
- Document damages you sustained in your accident
- Collect and preserve evidence of liability
- Identify all sources of insurance coverage to maximize your financial recovery
- File your claim with the appropriate agency or insurer
Deadlines That May Affect The Filing Process
Time is essential after an auto accident. If you are filing for no-fault/Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage, you have 30 days to apply for benefits. If your accident was caused by a local, city, state or federal government vehicle such as a police car, bus or maintenance vehicle, you may have only 30 days to file a claim with the appropriate agency. The sooner you talk to a skilled lawyer, the better.
We take care to explain the filing process clearly because we want you to understand the challenges that you may face along the way. To lessen your burden, our team will help you complete your paperwork and submit it.
We are passionate about protecting our clients’ rights to compensation. If you are struggling to recover from a life-changing crash, you need an assertive legal team by your side.
