Personal Injury FAQs
You've got questions after your injury? We have answers.
You might have a personal injury case if:
Can you prove that someone else was negligent or strictly liable?
If someone acted without exercising reasonable care and you’ve suffered some type of damages as a result such as:

In New York, you can seek both economic and non-economic awards for your injuries. These help to cover your financial costs, as well as compensate for hard-to-value trauma.
Potential compensation can include:
Punitive damages could be available if the defendant’s actions are deserving of punishment. These often apply in cases involving gross negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct.
It begins when you submit a claim to an insurer. This will likely be the insurance company for the party that caused your injury. However, you might submit a claim with your own insurer after a car collision through your no-fault coverage.
After you submit your claim, the following will occur:
If they accept liability, they may offer you a settlement that doesn’t fully cover your impairments. You and your personal injury lawyer will have the opportunity to negotiate a higher settlement. If the insurer denies your claim or refuses to offer a fair settlement, you may have to initiate a lawsuit to pursue your compensation.
It depends on a lot of different factors.
The more serious your injuries, the more your case is probably worth. But, this is just a general rule. The pain and suffering that can accompany even a relatively minor injury can add considerable value to a case.
When you hire an injury attorney, they’ll carefully analyze your damages, consider how your injuries will affect you in the future, and consult with experts to value your case properly.
Nothing upfront. This gives you the opportunity to ask for help without having to worry about the price. Personal injury lawyers work on contingency. They only get paid if they win your case.
If your case is successful, they will recover a pre-agreed-upon percentage of your award. This is typically anywhere between 33 and 40%.
Three years. That’s the statute of limitations for most personal injury lawsuits in the state. If you’ve lost a family member in a fatal case, then you’ll have a maximum of two (from their date of death) to file a wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible.
You will lose the right to get compensation if you miss the deadline that applies to your case. Speak with a lawyer to make sure that procedural rules don’t stand between you and the reimbursement you need.
Negligence means that a person caused another person to get hurt. This person failed to act reasonably under the circumstances and, as a result,
Negligence is the most common cause of action for many personal injury lawsuits. These include those involving auto accidents, slips and falls, medical malpractice, and wrongful death.
In order to be the winner in a case based on negligence, you will have the burden of proving four different things to establish liability.
This might seem straightforward, but proving negligence can be quite challenging. It’s best to trust an experienced lawyer to take charge and create a strong case on your behalf.
Statistically speaking, probably not. Only 4 or 5% of civil personal injury lawsuits end up in court. However, that doesn’t mean that your case won’t. The insurance provider might not offer you a fair settlement, or the at-fault party might just refuse to negotiate with you, at all.
Whether your case ends up in court or not, you’ll want to hire a lawyer experienced in courtroom litigation. This will show the defendant that you won’t be pushed around or manipulated into taking anything less than a fair deal.
If an insurer knows your attorney is a winning litigator, they’re more likely to deal with you in good faith and negotiate fair terms.
We serve all neighborhoods in Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs, including:
New York has no-fault insurance laws. But, that doesn’t mean that recovering compensation after a collision is easy. Our NYC car accident attorneys will help you make insurance companies play by the rules. When necessary, we’ll seek reimbursement directly from those responsible for your injuries.
Motorcyclists are vulnerable to catastrophic injuries when they’re in a motor vehicle collision. Negligent drivers tend to blame riders for causing collisions in the first place. Our motorcycle accident lawyers will help you set the record straight and minimize the fault that’s assigned to you. We’ll fight to maximize your compensation after your motorcycle injuries.
Trucks play an instrumental role in the local economy. Unfortunately, they also create a serious hazard when they share the road with smaller vehicles. Following a trucking calamity, all liable parties – negligent truck drivers, trucking companies, and/or manufacturers – must be held to account. Our truck accident lawyers are prepared to invest the time and resources that are necessary to make that happen for you.
The Big Apple is notorious for having some of the most dangerous intersections in the nation. And, it’s pedestrians who tend to suffer when intersection accidents happen. Often, it’s distracted and rushed drivers who are to blame. Our NYC pedestrian accident lawyers will stand beside you and work tirelessly to hold those who occasioned your injuries accountable.
New York City is seemingly always under construction. And, while New York has some strict labor laws, construction sites aren’t always safe. Following an on-the-job accident, injured workers have options. Our NYC construction accident attorney is prepared to help you pursue every avenue available – including workers’ compensation and/or third-party personal injury claims.
