This law firm was recommended to me by a friend to help me with a slip and fall I endured. I found the entire Held, Held & Held staff to be extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and were very up front with me about the strengths and weaknesses of my case.

I am a former New York State Judge. My wife was severely injured in an automobile accident. The Held firm took the case when others said, “There’s nothing here.” We settled for a sizeable amount due to the care, hard-work and diligence of all members of this firm.

This office was awesome. The lawyers and staff were so helpful with all my questions and getting me a great settlement. They always got back to me and they actually cared about me and my case. I never usually write a review, but I felt like these guys deserved a positive review for all of their efforts.

Injury Claims Lawyers In Brooklyn

When you’re dealing with a personal injury, filing an insurance claim can be a daunting and confusing process. Held, Held & Held is here to help file your claim and get the compensation you deserve.


What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is generally three years from the date of the accident. However, there are exceptions, so it’s important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can advise you on the specific time limits that apply to your case.

Do I need medical attention if I feel fine after a car crash?

Yes, you should seek medical attention after a car crash, even if you feel fine. Some injuries may not appear right away, so delaying medical treatment can make your injuries worse and potentially harm your personal injury claim. Seeking prompt medical attention will also help document your injuries and establish a link between them and the accident.

Should I speak to the at-fault driver's insurance company if they call me?

It is generally not advisable to speak to the at-fault driver’s insurance company if they call you. Insurance adjusters are trained to minimize the amount of compensation paid out to claimants, and anything you say to them can potentially be used against you to reduce the value of your claim.

It’s best to let an experienced personal injury lawyer handle all communications with insurance companies.
