WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW RIGHT NOW
Regardless of how you or your loved one became a victim due to someone else’s negligence or malpractice, there is almost always a large, well-financed insurance company that will inevitably step in to defend and financially protect the wrongdoer(s) who becomes the defendant(s) in any lawsuit which must be brought. These insurance companies and the insurance industry have one goal which is to pay you nothing at all or pay you as little as possible once you have decided to assert your rights under the laws of the United States and the State of New York. This inevitable truth should not dissuade you from asserting all of your rights in our judicial system which is set up to level the playing field.
What do we mean? Whether you need to bring action against one person, many persons , a large corporation or a multitude of parties who are all protected by an insurance company making decisions behind the scene, nothing can prevent our office from utilizing the best weapon available: YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY MADE UP OF SIX ORDINARY PEOPLE FROM THE COMMUNITY JUST LIKE YOU WHO ARE WILLING TO SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH , STICK TO THE TRUTH, UPHOLD THE LAW AND RENDER YOU THE MUCH NEEDED JUSTICE YOU DESERVE.
Insurance companies have their attorneys, adjusters and representatives well-trained to defend, delay and frustrate your right to recover full and adequate compensation and damages. Often, insurance companies and their lawyers will not settle cases and claims fairly and fully until you demonstrate to them that you are prepared to proceed up to and including a trial and verdict for the purpose of obtaining all that is due and owing to you and/or your family. For over 27 years, we have dedicated ourselves to combating the insurance company industry and its consistent strategy designed to avoid prompt and fair payment of compensation and damages to all deserving victims. Often, this requires our office to go the distance “tooth and nail” using every available resource with unrelenting effort to fight for you and your family. This is what we do. As trial lawyers, we are ready, willing and able to take on the fight to make sure we achieve full and complete justice for you and your loved ones.
While some litigation may take time and every case is different, you deserve to be fully compensated for all pain and suffering and related damages. You should know that we will not spare any necessary monetary expense, resource, time or effort required in order to battle the insurance company and its lawyers. Remember, the insurance industry and insurance companies are in business to maximize profits and keep their money as opposed to paying it to you.
This is why it is important to contact us immediately prior to any insurance company representative attempting to speak to you about your potential claim. The insurance company adjuster or representative has significant training and years of experience in eliciting statements from people which can distort the truth and/or facts only serving to accomplish their goal of eliminating or significantly diminishing your claim(s). DO NOT TALK TO OR PROVIDE ANY RECORDED STATEMENT TO ANYONE ON BEHALF OF AN INSURANCE COMPANY BEFORE YOU HAVE TALKED TO A LAWYER.
Little did you know that when you were involved in the unfortunate circumstances which brought you to our website you would be required to battle an insurance company that is part of an insurance industry which has funded a multibillion-dollar advertising campaign attempting to strip you of your legal rights and convince the public and potential jurors that all cases and injury claims are either frivolous, unworthy and/or unjustified. Unfortunately for the insurance industry and its lawyers, we know from experience and fighting the fight time and time again that jurors who were sworn to uphold justice ultimately choose to search for the truth, uphold the law and render justice to the deserving victim and his or her family. When you hire the Law Offices of Ira M. Perlman and Robert D. Rosen to handle your serious claim(s), you are not hiring a settlement mill. We take great pride in what we do, what we know and what we continuously fight for year after year, week after week, day after day, including nights and weekends, in order to make sure our clients receive what they so very deserve despite the unwillingness of the insurance industry to pay and play fair.

At the Law Offices of Ira M. Perlman and Robert D. Rosen, there are no shortcuts taken in order to pursue a claim and/or prosecute a lawsuit. If investigators and experts are required for a case and the costs involve tens of thousands of dollars, the office has the funds necessary to prosecute all of its cases without cutting back or holding off on spending the money. Never does the office ask its clients to lay out or front any monies in order to prosecute these claims. The office does not receive any compensation for their services until compensation is recovered on behalf its client. Only then does the office receive a fee and reimbursement of any disbursement which were advanced to prosecute an action. In fact, our Retainer Agreement is straightforward and in plain language so there is no uncertainty concerning the client-office relationship.
The fee earned by our office in any personal injury case involving an accident or malpractice is a contingency fee which is a fee that is not earned or paid until and unless there has been a monetary recovery for the client’s damages, harms or losses. In New York, court rules permit a flat thirty-three and one-third (33 1/3%) percent fee of the sum recovered in a personal injury case which does not involve medical, dental or podiatric malpractice. The fee in these medical malpractice cases are separately regulated pursuant to Judiciary Law Section 474-a, which sets the fee in a medical malpractice case as follows:
- (I) 30 percent of the first $250,000.00 recovered;
- (ii) 25 percent on the next $250,000.00 recovered;
- (iii) 20 percent on the next $500,000.00 recovered;
- (iv) 15 percent on the next $250,000.00 recovered; and
- (v) 10 percent on any amount recovered over $1,250,000.00.
Whether it is a straightforward accident case or a malpractice case, the percentage fee is calculated on the net sum recovered which means that any disbursements or expenses which were advanced by the office to prosecute the case are deducted “off the top” and repaid back to the law office. In other words, the disbursements and expenses are subtracted from the total settlement or verdict amount and then the percentage fee is applied to the net amount. As a basic example, if there was a motor vehicle accident which resulted in a $100,000.00 settlement to a client and the office advanced $5,000.00 in expenses and disbursements to prosecute the case, the $5,000.00 would be subtracted from the $100,000.00 in order to reimburse the law office for the disbursements and expenses. This would leave $95,000.00 as a net amount out of which the office would charge a thirty-three and one-third (33 1/3%) percent fee (one-third of $95,000.00) which results in a fee of $31,666.66. The client’s share would be $63,333.34.
