Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to retain an attorney for my personal injury case?

An attorney can often obtain more money for your claim then you can obtain on your own. It is the goal of every insurance adjuster to minimize claims payouts in order to increase the profits of the insurance company they are employed by. Adjusters are often rewarded by their employers for resolving claims quickly for a minimal sum to the injured claimant. Therefore,
the goal and purpose of an insurance company is in direct conflict with your best interests.
The job of your attorney is to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. Your attorney's sole job is to work on your behalf and fight the insurance company, in court if necessary, to obtain the best possible outcome for you. 

In addition, you may be entitled to a recovery under multiple policies of insurance provided by other insurance carriers, including your own, which may provide coverage applicable to your claim.
Attorney Anthony P. Borden has over 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases. He knows how to assess the value of a case and how to locate other sources of recovery for you!

How much will my case cost me to pursue?

Attorney Anthony P. Borden provides a FREE initial consultation in regards to personal injury cases. He will advance the costs necessary to investigate and prosecute the claim. These advanced costs are reimbursed to Mr. Borden at the conclusion of the case, assuming he is able to obtain a recovery on your behalf.
If no recovery is obtained, you will not owe Anthony anything!

Anthony also utilizes a contingency fee agreement which means that if there is no recovery made on your behalf, Anthony will not receive any fee. If he is successful, he will receive a fee of one-third of the gross recovery obtained.  

What is my case worth?

Every case is different. The value of your case will depend on a variety of factors which an attorney can assess to determine a range of acceptable settlement values. The severity of your injury, the duration of your medical care, the amount of your medical expenses, the amount of your lost income and the jurisdiction in which your case would be filed all play a critical role in determining the value of your case. 

There is no simple formula to determine the value of your case. You should not evaluate your case based upon stories of settlements obtained from other sources or on settlements obtained by friends and relatives under different circumstances. No two cases are alike and each should be evaluated on its individual merits by an attorney with experience in handling personal injury claims in your area.

Having handled over three thousand of personal injury claims on his own from start to finish in the New York City region, Anthony is well equipped to assess the value of your case. He can help you decide if an insurance company's offer is fair compensation for your injuries under all types of circumstances. He will advise you if he believes that the insurance carrier is undervaluing, also known as 'lowballing', your claim and if so, with your consent, will conduct the necessary litigation in court to maximize your recovery.

Anthony's vast experience in the field of personal injury claims will ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
