Sum/um Motor Vehicle Accident Cases
Total Articles: 78
Sometimes the party responsible for your car accident leaves the scene undocumented by police and without providing any information without which it becomes impossible to sustain an accident case against that party. Our firm has a great deal of experience handling Uninsured Motorist or “UM” claims. This type of claim is filed against the insurance company for the vehicle in which the injured party was situated at the time of the accident. It is different procedurally, as it stems from a contract based relationship between the insurance company and the insured. The claim is generally heard by an arbitrator, rather than a jury, and requires an attorney who understands what it takes to persuade an experienced arbitrator to award money to an accident victim. Another type of first party claim is a Supplementary Underinsured claim or “SUM”. This arises when the tortfeasor has only limited coverage, and tenders the full amount of that policy to the injured party. It is important that you hire an attorney who understands the ins and outs of sustaining a proper SUM claim. Lisa S. Fine has been successful in assisting clients in getting clients access to SUM benefits to compensate them for their personal injuries.
Trip and Fall Accident Cases:
Trip and fall cases can be especially tricky, and have their own statutory guidelines and timeframes that must be strictly adhered to. Our attorney has extensive experience dealing with municipalities and property owners in these challenging matters. Claims against municipalities must be filed with the municipality by way of Notice of Claim within 90 days of the occurrence. Ms. Fine has attended hundreds of 50H hearings with the city and city agencies, and local municipalities, and has had successful settlements and trials against municipalities in trip and fall cases.
Lisa has successfully litigated cases representing both plaintiffs and defendants in the state courts of New York, as well as the Eastern and Southern District Federal Courts of New York. She began her own practice in Western Suffolk to be able to service her clients in many different areas.
On her own since 2003, Lisa has developed her practice to conform to the needs of her local clientele. With a focus on divorce and family law, mediation and arbitration, and personal injury, as well as commercial and business transactions, Lisa offers a wide range of services to her clients. Lisa’s general practice background allows her to see the big picture in evaluating her clients’ needs. Recognizing that each client has a unique situation that requires “outside of the box” thinking, Lisa utilizes her knowledge and expertise of different areas of law to come up with a solution that conforms to the clients’ distinct needs.
As Immediate Past President of the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association, a chapter of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, and a former Director of the Suffolk County Women’s Business Enterprise Coalition (SCWBEC), Lisa is a strong advocate for women in and out of the workplace.
Lisa is admitted to the New York State Bar, Eastern District of New York, and Southern District of New York as well as being paneled on the American Arbitration Association Commercial Expedited Panel.
Lisa is married with two young daughters and enjoys spending time with them hiking, painting, reading and watching silly movies.
