Shawn Carey

Trial Attorney Shawn W. Carey has been representing seriously injured citizens, workers and their families in courtrooms throughout New York State for more than 20 years.

Any lawyer can pick up the telephone, call an insurance adjuster and try to settle a client’s claim for whatever the insurance company determines it wants to pay, often without the lawyer ever setting foot on the courthouse steps.

Experienced personal injury litigators and trial attorneys know that this is rarely the means by which the best recovery is obtained for any individual client. No attorney can promise any outcome to their client, and past results cannot guarantee future outcomes, but far more often than not, a favorable and just result for a seriously injured client is obtained by an attorney with the requisite skill, experience, expertise and perseverance that is usually demonstrated by a track record for successfully taking their clients’ cases to court, to trial and even on to appeal.

Since 1997, Attorney Carey has recovered millions of dollars for the seriously injured clients he has represented, including multimillion dollar individual recoveries both by settlement and by trial verdict. As Mr. Carey frequently accepts difficult liability cases, often by referral from fellow attorneys, he cannot assure any client a victorious outcome. Mr. Carey does, however, guarantee all personal injury clients that we will not charge them a fee for legal representation unless he obtains a recovery on their behalf.

If you have been seriously injured then you don’t need to be told that your world has been turned upside down. Your livelihood, health, personal and family security, present and future, have been placed in jeopardy by your injury and its aftermath.  Who will you trust to advise you whether or not you may have a personal injury claim that might allow you to get your house back in order?

And if you have a personal injury case, who can you trust to handle it for you?
