Personal Injury FAQ

Do I have a case?

It is hard to say whether you have a case or not until we gather all the facts. If you or your loved one has been injured as a result of someone elses negligence, contact Lozner & Mastropietro as soon as possible so we can assist you in discovering whether you have a valid claim. We take personal injury cases on a contingency basis, which means, if we succeed on your behalf, we are paid a percentage of the award and reimbursed for our expenses.


How much compensation could I expect for my personal injury claim?

The value of your personal injury claim will be based upon factors such as the extent of your bodily injury, the cause of your injury, the permanency of the injury, the manner in which the injury affects your everyday life and all expenses incurred by you as a result of the injury.


Should I contact a lawyer if Ive suffered an injury or a loved one has died as a result of someone elses negligence, carelessness or mistake?

Yes. Personal injury and wrongful death cases can be complex and consume significant time and resources. Lozner & Mastropietro has the resources and experience to prosecute your case effectively.


Can I take my time contacting a lawyer?

No. There are statutes of limitations for personal injury cases. This means that you have only a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit in a personal injury or wrongful death case. If the city, state or other government agency is responsible for the injury, then you have an even shorter time to give notice of a lawsuit. Once that time runs out, even if you have a valid claim, you will not be allowed to file a lawsuit.


Who can sue when a loved one dies?

Parents, siblings, spouses and children can sue when a loved one dies as a result of someone elses negligence.


What is negligence?

Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care or failure to use the same degree of care that a reasonable person would use under the same circumstances. Evidence of negligence is the basis for liability in most personal injury and wrongful death cases.
