Personal Attention & Commitment

Insurance companies and inexperienced personal injury firms have one thing in common — they both like quick and easy settlements. At Basch & Keegan LLP, we believe there is a better way. For each case we handle, we put forth the necessary time, effort, and hard work to ensure a maximum settlement for our clients.

Although we settle the majority of our cases, what makes our firm different, is that we prepare every case as if it were going to trial. When insurance companies are unwilling to pay what our clients deserve, we make them pay by taking them to court. While we cannot guarantee results, we can ensure that our team is willing to give you the personal attention and commitment that you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers from our Kingston, NY Personal Injury Lawyers
  • Q:Should I get a slip and fall lawyer?

    A:A lawyer can help you get the highest compensation for your slip and fall accident. But to win a case in New York, the following must be true: The property owner/manager was negligent, and it resulted in your accident. And you received medical bills from the event, lost earning capacity, lost wages, or you experienced pain/suffering. New York’s law allows for partial blame to fall on the plaintiff. Therefore, before going into litigation, you should know that your actions will also be assessed, and you will have been expected to have demonstrated a reasonable level of care, such as paying attention to “Do Not Enter” signage. Without a lawyer, it can be difficult to predict claims from the defendant on such topics.

  • Q:What should I do if I was hit by a car as a pedestrian?

    A:In New York, you should call the police immediately after you are hit by a car as a pedestrian in order to have a legal case. It must be done within 24 hours of the accident, or else you will not be able to file, even if the driver was clearly at fault. If you suspect any of the below were true at the time of the accident or could possibly have been true, you should definitely contact an attorney after your police report: 1) The driver was speeding. 2) The driver ran a stop sign or red traffic light. 3) You were in the break down lane, and the driver did not move over or slow down. 4) You were entering or exiting your vehicle, and the driver did not give you enough room to do so. 5) The driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Because NY is a comparative negligence state, you could also be held partially liable for the accident. It’s best to hire an attorney to help you navigate those waters.

  • Q:What is premises liability?

    A:Premises liability is the area of law surrounding personal injury on someone else's property. It occurs when a property owner, manager or landlord has caused harm to someone on their property due to negligence. The most common premises liability claims include: Slip and fall hazards - This is the most common type of premises liability. It occurs when the property owner/manager fails to properly maintain expected areas of foot traffic. Unrestrained dogs - The owner of a dog can be held liable if the dog injures someone due to lack of training, being off-leash, or not being contained by a fence. Poor security - Property owners/managers are responsible for taking steps to prevent robbery, vandalism, and break-ins. Lack of Maintenance- Building elements should be properly maintained for tenant and visitor safety.

  • Q:When should I get an attorney for a car accident?

    A:Did you recently get into a car accident and have suffered from injuries, damage, or expenses? If so, speaking to an attorney is always a good idea. If you go in alone, you may find yourself falling into traps from the other driver's insurance company, getting an underwhelming amount of compensation, or not knowing all of your options. An experienced car accident attorney from a reputable firm like Basch & Keegan LLP can make a strong case for you.
