Flushing Personal Injury Lawyers
When a person has been injured because a drunk driver hit their vehicle, or they suffered a bad slip and fall injury at a mall, they probably know to contact a personal injury lawyer to help them. However, not all personal injuries are immediately apparent.
The Flushing personal injury lawyers at Douglas and London can help you receive the maximum compensation. While most cases are settled, we will go to court when necessary for our clients.
Finding the responsible parties
Part of any lawyer’s job is determining who is responsible for the client’s injuries. In the case of a drunk driver, it is obvious, however in certain circumstances, a bar owner or the host of a private party may also hold some liability.
Statute of limitations
In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is three years. It is relatively easy to determine liability in a car accident or slip and fall.
Sometimes, a person dies from their injuries. The personal representative of their estate may file a wrongful death lawsuit within two years of the death date. Although the statute of limitations does give you some time, it is always wise to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
