Personal injury is a legal term that is used to describe a wide array of injuries that can impact the body, emotions and mind of an injured victim. A personal injury case can help protect victims that have suffered damages from an injury.
Based on the unique nature of the injury suffered, different damages are available to help compensate a victim for the physical and emotional harm suffered in an accident. Every personal injury case includes liability and damages. If the defendant in a personal injury case is found to be at fault for liability and damages, the justice system can award compensation to a plaintiff for the losses suffered.
If you have been injured in an accident or sustained major property damage, it is important to engage legal services shortly thereafter. Insurance companies have experts and tons of legal resources that are out to protect their own interests. A Chelsea NYC personal injury attorney will handle all discussions with an insurance company and carriers and represent you in negotiations. This will ensure that your medical bills and property damage claim to your vehicle are paid in a timely manner. Frequently, insurers will attempt to mitigate damages by offering low settlement offers that do not accurately take into account the full amount of damages that have occurred. With the assistance of experienced personal injury attorneys, an injury victim can feel confident that their legal representative is fighting for maximum compensation to help restore your well-being.
An experienced lawyer will be knowledgeable of the personal injury laws in throughout NY, qualifying them to find essential medical experts. Experts who can not only provide you with the best possible treatment for your injuries but if necessary can later testify on your behalf during trial regarding the extent of your injuries and their effect on your future.
The team of investigative staff that comes with hiring an attorney will also prove beneficial to your personal injury claim, especially during settlement negotiations or trial. Your lawyer will use the information they discover from recreating the auto accident, or scene of the injury, to examining the facts surrounding your case in order to prove liability and pursue the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.
Compensatory damages are awarded to plaintiffs to help compensate for the damages caused from an injury or injuries. In order for an accident victim to recover compensatory damages, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the loss occurred and that the defendant caused these financial damages. A few common examples of compensatory damages include:
Our legal team offers experienced personal injury advice to anyone searching to recover compensation lost as a result of someone else’s negligence and we strive to hold negligent parties accountable for damaging misconduct. We have experience in, and have chosen to focus on, the following specific areas of the law to better serve our injured clients:
The statute of limitations to file a lawsuit in the state of New York for personal injury cases is three (3) years from the date of the injury. After the specified amount of time has passed, more than likely the Court will refuse to hear your case and you will not be able to seek compensation. Additionally, if you are going to sue a Municipality, then a Notice of Claim must be filed within ninety (90) days of the accident of you claim against the Municipality may be forever lost as time-barred.
Depending on the facts and events surrounding each unique personal injury case, the injuries sustained could potentially permanently impact victims. Individuals that have suffered serious personal injuries may have impairments and disabilities that impact their mobility for the rest of their lives. Our attorneys understand the severity that injured victims have to adapt to after an accident. Some of the damages available for victims include medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering and loss of earning capacity. We fight for the appropriate and necessary compensation for the damages already suffered, and the damages that victims can suffer in the future.
The vast majority of personal injury cases in New York are going to be resolved through settlements with insurance carriers before a trial takes place in Court. Think about one of the most common types of personal injury claims that arise – vehicular accidents. In these situations, individuals typically file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Even though insurance carriers may put up some resistance towards paying total compensation, they usually end up making a settlement in the end.
Most other types of injury claims are also resolved through some type of insurance carrier. Property owners have insurance that they carry to handle incidents like slip and fall accidents. Homeowners carry insurance to cover accidents that happen at private residences.
However, there are many situations where personal injury trials do become necessary. Even when this occurs, the likelihood of a case going all the way through trial is low. Many cases that get this far are resolved after jury selection. But there are certainly situations when it is necessary for a case to be heard by a jury in order for an injury victim to recover the full compensation they are entitled to.
Our personal injury attorney has more than fifteen (15) years of experience fighting for victims of personal injury.
