Long Island Medical - Patient Law and Personal Injury Lawyer
A serious injury or unexpected death can have devastating consequences on you and your family. Before accepting any offer from an insurance company, consider consulting an experienced attorney. Anthony T. Ballato can review your personal injury, abuse or neglect claim to determine if the offer is fair and provides the compensation you deserve. Most often it is not and warrants prompt legal action and further measures.
Personal Injury, Collisions, Accidents and Falls
Personal injury that results in changes of your quality of life can also take place any time and anywhere. Too often, accidents occur as a result of negligence or other avoidable reasons and insurance companies are quick to either write off requests for compensation or to offer a quick and insufficient payout to settle. The biggest mistake you can make in instances like the one above is accepting an offer or settlement without consulting an experienced attorney or waiting too long before the statute of limitations expires, or improper billing.
Neglect, Abuse and Nursing Homes
When we place our loved ones in the care of an institution or facility, we do so trusting that they will provide the best care possible. Unfortunately, institutions can sometimes fail to meet standards of care, resulting in neglect and in some cases, even abuse. You are welcome to contact the lawyer if you feel that a loved one or relative has been injured, abused or neglected and we’ll review your case with you to ensure that you are aware of the legal avenues available and how best to proceed. We also defend against unfair claims and lawsuits by medical providers.
