The determination of fault is central to any car accident case. The responding law enforcement agency usually makes the initial determination of fault. However, law enforcement officers typically lack in-depth training in accident reconstruction, and insurance adjusters are incentivized to ensure that the insurance company pays out as little as possible.
When it comes to determining fault, it is not always down to the insurance adjuster’s decision. The best chance at resolving a case in your favor is to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will examine all the evidence and fight for you. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in New York and are uncertain about who is at fault, contact Proner & Proner for a free case evaluation.
There are three ways to know if a New York accident lawyer is as good as they say: the testimonials of their current and former clients, the sum of verdicts and settlements they have won for their clients, and the lists, awards, and recognitions from their fellow lawyers.
In April 2023, the managing partner of Proner & Proner Attorneys at Law, Mitchell Proner, received two new recognitions that classify him as one of the best accident lawyers in the state of New York: the Lawyers of Distinction award and a member of The National Trial Lawyers Top 100.
Lawyers of Distinction: Recognition of excellence in legal practice
Lawyers of Distinction is an organization that selects the best lawyers in the United States in different areas of legal practice, including New York lawyers who handle accident and personal injury cases.
To be recognized as a member of the organization, lawyers must submit an application or be nominated by someone else and go through a strict evaluation and selection process that aims to “recognize the applicant’s achievements and recognition among their peers.”
The evaluation process includes a final review of ethical violations in the last ten years before membership confirmation, ensuring that Lawyers of Distinction members meet the highest ethical standards of the guild.
On the Lawyers of Distinction 2023 list, which was published in The New York Times, Mitchell Proner’s name appears again as one of the most prominent personal injury lawyers in the state of New York.
“I am grateful for the recognition of Lawyers of Distinction and for being listed in The New York Times. However, my greatest satisfaction is being able to help my clients in difficult times, and I will continue to work hard to provide them with exceptional legal representation,” says Mitchell Proner.
The National Trial Lawyers Top 100: The best trial lawyers in the country
A personal injury lawsuit in New York can be resolved in two ways: in a settlement with the insurance company or in a trial. The latter legal route requires an experienced lawyer leading a team of professionals who must be able to gather evidence and testimonies to convince the jury that their client deserves compensation for their injuries.
Preparing for a trial is not easy and taking a case to a jury involves many risks. That is why some lawyers going to trial and prefer to convince their clients that the money offered by the insurance company is the one they deserve, even if it is an unjust or insufficient sum. But Mitchell Proner is not afraid of the courts.
For the thirteenth consecutive year, the managing partner of our firm has been selected in The National Trial Lawyers Top 100, an organization that brings together the best trial lawyers in the United States.
The selection committee relies on a “comprehensive, objective, and uniformly applied process, which includes nominations from colleagues combined with third-party investigations. Membership is awarded only to a few of the most qualified lawyers in each state or region who demonstrate superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and public profile.”
Leave your personal injury case in the hands of one of the best accident lawyers in NYC
If you suffered injuries due to the negligence of a careless person, you deserve the legal representation of one of the best accident lawyers in New York.
As Mitchell Proner has said many times in his weekly live video casts, no ethical lawyer can guarantee a successful outcome, no matter how much experience they have or how many millions they have won for their clients.
In contrast, the best accident lawyers in NY can guarantee that they will fight tirelessly for the compensation their clients deserve, even in a trial if necessary.
