We understand that a personal injury can be devastating to you physically, emotionally, and financially – it can turn your entire life upside down. And if your injury is caused by the negligence or wrongful actions of another individual or organization, you deserve compensation under New York State law.
Personal injuries can include those that happen at home, while at the residence of another individual, on the road, or at a workplace. They can be a result of unsafe surroundings, car, truck or other vehicular accidents, or even swimming pool, dog bites and slip & fall accidents that call into account premise liability.
If you or a loved one has been injured, we can help you determine if you have a legal claim, negotiate fair compensation from insurance companies, and represent you in court if it’s in your best interest to take your case to trial.
Personal Injury suits can be filed against the responsible parties by making use of one or more of many available legal principles, such as:
Negligence. An accident caused by negligence is one that results from the failure of an individual or organization to use reasonable care, even if the negligence was unintentional.
Strict Liability. If an injury was caused by the defendant or the defendant’s product, even if the defendant took all possible precautions, you may still be able to file a claim if the defendant or defendant's product is responsible for your injury. This legal principal is also used against dog owners in cases of injuries sustained from a dog bite so long as the injured person can show that the dog had prior vicious propensities.
Intentional or Reckless Misconduct. If injury or death is the result of the malicious and intentional actions of another individual, you or your family may recover punitive damages as partial compensation for your injury or loss.
Damages. The compensation an individual receives in a personal injury case is called damages. Damages may be awarded for medical bills incurred, lost wages, scarring or disfigurement, pain and suffering, including emotional suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
Because of the complexities and time limitations in the legal process, you should not enter into any settlements, sign a release, accept money in return for releasing an individual, organization or insurance company from liability, or make any other decision that may limit future legal recourse without first consulting with a personal injury attorney.
