David Resnick Shares Story of Becoming a Personal Injury Lawyer in NYC

Attorney David Resnick shares his journey as a New York City personal injury lawyer in a new video on the website of David Resnick & Associates, PC.

Resnick says that the most rewarding thing about being a personal injury lawyer is helping people turn their lives around and move forward after serious accidents.

“People who come to me have had horrible things happen to them,” Resnick says. “I have the ability to make their lives better.”

David Resnick & Associates was founded in 1998 after David worked in a large law firm and saw a need for more personalized attention to clients. He said a personal injury attorney needs to listen carefully to clients.

“You really have to meet with them and talk about how an injury affected their everyday life, what kind of treatment they are getting and what kind of treatment they would like to get if they could,” he says.

Resnick frequently visits clients in their homes or at the hospital to understand the trauma that an accident has caused.

Resnick says the law firm has to be prepared to fight with the insurance company for fair compensation because from the moment a personal injury accident occurs, it is a battle for justice. He said an insurance company is more likely to settle a case if the insurer understands the personal injury lawyer representing the accident victim has a detailed understanding of the case and is fully prepared to go to trial.

“If a client chooses me as their attorney, they are getting someone who is more tenacious than the other guy,” Resnick says. “They are getting someone who is going to be there.”

David is proud that David Resnick & Associates, PC has grown into a successful New York personal injury law firm in midtown Manhattan. Despite the success of the law firm, David Resnick’s dedication to client relationships is very obvious.

“There is nothing better than coming out into the waiting room of a client whose case has settled and they want to give you a hug and a kiss and tell you how wonderful you are for changing their life,” he said.
