After you have been seriously injured in an accident in New York, you probably have many questions about whether or not you are entitled to file a personal injury case.
If someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior is the cause of your injuries, then you may be entitled to financial compensation for expenses and loses associated with the accident. These typically include medical treatments, lost past and future wages, attorney fees, past and future medical costs, past and future pain and suffering, psychological distress, permanent disability, administrative and funeral expenses in wrongful death cases, financial hardship, property damage, psychological distress and decreased quality of life. This is in addition to any other out of pocket expenses associated with your injury.
Only a knowledgeable attorney can evaluate your case and tell you more about whether or not you meet the grounds for a personal injury claim. Although no successful claim will eradicate the accident and its aftermath, a claim could allow you to get the medical attention you need so that you can have a positive future ahead. Personal injury law is there to protect victims who have sustained injuries in serious accidents due to someone elseâ€™s negligence. There are numerous causes of personal injury accidents including car and truck collisions, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall, and many others.
Some individuals might hesitate to get legal help as soon as possible because they are already buried in medical bills and other expenses from the accident. What you should know is that the majority of New York personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that they are only paid if they win your case.
