A: if you were hurt contact a member of the NY State Trial Lawyers Assn for the county where it happened. They give free consults.

If they are liable they are liable .

A: Insurance carriers will sometimes qualify an offer of settlement with conditions (these regularly arise in the terms of standard release forms) that the offer is not an admission of liability.
