What types of personal injury cases do Douglas & London handle?

Personal injury is a broad area of the law. The Haverstraw personal injury lawyers at Douglas & London work with clients who have been affected by a wide range of incidents, including the following:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Including pedestrian, car, bus, big rig, and motorcycle crashes
  • Premises liability cases: Including slip and fall accidents, swimming pool incidents, and dog bites
  • Product liability cases: Including dangerous drugs and defective medical devices
  • Medical malpractice: Including birth injury, surgical errors, medication errors, and hospital mistakes

Personal injury cases do not always require filing a lawsuit. It’s often possible to recover compensation without it. When you meet with a personal injury lawyer at Douglas & London, we’ll consider whether your losses might be covered under an insurance policy. If so, our vigorous negotiating tactics will give you the best chance of recovering a fair settlement. If a fair offer is not forthcoming, we won’t hesitate to pursue justice on your behalf in a court of law.

How much is my case worth?

It’s difficult to put an exact dollar figure on a case. There is no precise mathematical formula that juries use to decide how much to award a plaintiff. However, it may be possible to give you an estimated range of how much you might be compensated. Bear in mind that the estimate given at the onset of a case may differ dramatically from an estimate given later on– because it’s often tricky to accurately assess the severity and duration of a person’s injuries.

There are two broad categories of damages or compensation: economic and non-economic. Economic damages are calculable and objective. They include compensation for medical bills, physical therapy costs, and medication co-pays. This category also includes your lost wages and property damage, if any.

Non-economic damages are subjective. This category includes compensation for mental anguish, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. In general, plaintiffs are more likely to be awarded non-economic damages if they suffered severe injuries that led to permanent disabilities.
