Compensation For A Serious Back Injury

Compensation for a Serious Back Injury? We May Be Able to Help

Representing Back Injury Victims in all of Upstate NY

The back is a complex and fragile system. An otherwise strong and healthy person can become completely incapacitated and humbled by a back injury. Suddenly you can’t walk, bend or lift 10 pounds without pain. You may be laid up for a week, a month, or who knows how long.

At the law offices of Hacker Murphy, we sympathize with your difficult situation and want to help. Whether you were injured in an auto accident, a construction accident or a slip-and-fall, we are committed to seeing that your medical care is covered and that you are fairly compensated for the impact on your life.

If you suffered a back injury because of the negligence of others, contact us today for experienced, aggressive protection of your interests.

In our decades of injury litigation, our attorneys have handled hundreds of back injury cases. We know that these injuries often linger or worsen and that you are not well served by a quick settlement. We will hold out for the comprehensive compensation to help you get physically and financially whole again.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.
    Contact us now to discuss your case with one of our experienced attorneys.
  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
