Laying the Foundation for a Strong Case
Following an accident, contacting an attorney early on increases your chances of a successful case.View transcript
MR. IRA SLAVIT: If you think you may have a case, it is better to consult a lawyer sooner rather than later. It is better to do the right thing in the first place than try to undo something that is harmful. At Levine & Slavit we urge all our clients to contact our office as often as they need to, to get information from us and to keep us aware of everything that's going on with respect to the accident. There may also be some very short deadlines where paperwork has to be filed. And by contacting an attorney early, that gives you a chance to not miss any deadline and receive all the rights and protections to which you're entitled under the law. Our firm, Levine & Slavit, has two offices. We have an office in Midtown Manhattan on 42nd Street in the Lincoln Building, which is right across the street from Grand Central Station. It is very easily accessible by public transportation. We also have an office on Long Island in Mineola. We have the ability to communicate and keep in contact via the computer between the two offices.
