Personal Injury Lawyers For the People

If you have been injured by another person or business, now is a time when you need experienced legal counsel.

You need an attorney who can successfully speak on your behalf with the responsible insurance company. You also need a litigator who can fight to protect you in court if a trial before a judge and jury becomes necessary.

Scarzafava, Basdekis & Dadey, PLLC, are the lawyers for you. From our office in Oneonta, we represent injured people in Otsego, Delaware and Chenango counties.

Personal Injury Law Is All We Do

At Scarzafava, Basdekis & Dadey, PLLC, we understand how overwhelming an unexpected injury or accident can be. Another party’s negligence can result in life-changing injuries, emotional trauma, or in the worst cases, death of a family member.

It is because of this injustice that our firm has been devoted to exclusively representing the innocently injured and bereaved since the firm was founded in 1981. This is the legacy that we have created upon our firm’s inception and will continue to foster for years to come.

Get All The Compensation You Deserve

Our experienced Oneonta personal injury lawyers will help you determine a fair compensation amount that covers both the hard costs, such as medical bills, lost income, repair costs for damaged property, and out-of-pocket expenses, as well as general damages.

General damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional & psychological distress
  • Punitive damages
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Our lawyers are dedicated to helping you get all the compensation you need and deserve. 

We will deal with the insurance companies so you can focus on your recovery.
