Personal injuries are serious accidents to the physical body or mind, involving personal loss.
Injuries can cost an exorbitant amount of money out-of-pocket. Ambulance rides, doctor copays, hospital stays, and lost time off work during recovery are just the tip of the iceberg. If you were injured by another party, through little to no fault of your own, you might be entitled to compensation by law. The New York Code of Civil Procedure allows you up to three years to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking damages like medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and wrongful death. Depending on the circumstances, you could be awarded for past, present, and future losses.
Were your injuries severe enough to interfere with daily life for 90 out of 180 days after your accident?
The biggest settlements and awards are given to plaintiffs with substantial disability for at least 90 out of 180 days following their accidents. Example injuries include broken bones, concussions, brain injuries, spinal trauma, nerve damage, loss of use of any organ, system, or appendage, burns, scarring disfigurement, and chronic pain.
Third-party liability can add thousands of dollars to a personal injury claim.
One of the benefits of pursuing a claim in civil court (versus criminal court) is that this area of law allows for an expanded scope of liability. A single individual may not be the only party named as a defendant in your lawsuit. If you were in a car accident with a commercial truck, the trucker’s employer might be held legally responsible. If you tripped and fell on school property, the school district may be liable. Often, these third parties are bound by law to exercise a reasonable duty of care– and, therefore, carry insurance policies to protect them from financial ruin.
Our team of Midtown Manhattan personal injury lawyerswill help you determine who is responsible for creating the hazardous conditions leading up to your accident and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
