We Demand Full Compensation in NY Accident Claims
For more than 20 years, Scott Zlotolow and his team have provided knowledgeable, aggressive, and successful legal representation to countless New Yorkers injured in senseless accidents. Our talented attorneys handle a wide range of personal injury claims involving:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents

- Slip-and-Fall Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Product Liability
- Medical Malpractice
- Dangerous Medications

Insurance adjusters who respond to an accident claim are obligated to protect their company’s bottom line. They work to pay you as little as possible, close your case file, and move on. We fight insurance companies to prevent them from taking advantage of people like you.
Zlotolow & Associates has the resources and the will to stand up to deep-pocketed businesses, corporations, and other entities that try to intimidate injured individuals. Our objective is to recover the maximum compensation available to you so that you and/or your loved ones do not face a financial burden from costs and losses caused by your accident.
Time Is Limited for Filing a Personal Injury Claim
Keep in mind that the state of New York’s statutes of limitations impose deadlines after which lawsuits may not be pursued. This is important because developing the evidence required to pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims in New York City is often a complex and time-consuming undertaking.
Any insurance company that wants to avoid paying a large settlement knows about the statutes of limitations and can obstruct and delay necessary work in hopes of making your claim invalid.
New York statutes of limitations deadlines include:
- Personal injury — 3 years
- Property damage — 3 years
- Wrongful death — 2 years
- Claims against local government, public authority, or public benefit corporations — 1 year and 90 days
- Medical, dental, or podiatric malpractice — 2 years and 6 months
- Injury from rape or other sexual offense — 5 years
There may be additional factors that affect your claim and/or how statutes of limitations apply to your case. Do not risk running out of time to pursue the compensation you deserve. Contact Zlotolow & Associates to initiate work on a claim for you today.
What to Expect in an Initial Consultation with Zlotolow & Associates
Your free initial consultation with Zlotolow & Associates is a chance for us to get to know each other as well as for us to make an initial assessment of your accident and how our attorneys may help you. We will start by asking you questions about your accident and injuries. We’ll also answer your initial questions.
It will be helpful if you can bring any information you have about your accident, such as:
- Any accident report filed by police, a business’ security firm, or any authority at the scene of your accident
- Medical records and receipts
- Property damage documentation, such as car repair estimates
- Information obtained from the other driver in a car accident (name, license number, insurance information, etc.)
- Names and contact information for witnesses to your accident
- Your insurance information (auto, health, etc.)
- Anything you have received from any insurance company since your accident
- Any additional information about your accident, injuries, property damage, and related medical care you have received
We will explain how New York personal injury law applies to your case and the legal options available to you. We will also explain what will be required to pursue a claim, so that you may weigh the personal costs and benefits, particularly the time involved. If we cannot pursue a claim for you, we will explain why and provide any other advice and assistance we can.
If we can represent you in a personal injury claim, we will outline a strategy and the next steps to be taken. Once we agree together to move forward with a legal claim, we will ask you to sign a retainer agreement, as well as additional documents, such as medical release forms.
A retainer agreement is a contract that states what Zlotolow & Associates will do for you and what you are responsible for doing to assist us as your attorneys. It also outlines our contingency fee arrangement, which sets our legal fees as a percentage of the final amount we may obtain for you. Zlotolow & Associates only accepts payments from clients after recovering compensation in a claim, whether through negotiation or court award.
