Securing Compensation for Your Fall Injury Damages in Glen Cove
New York State law intends for financial recovery in a personal injury case, such as a slip and fall, to justly compensate the victim for the expenses they paid and losses they endured. They should not have to pay out of their own accounts for another party’s bad behavior. You may hear the recoverable damages in these cases referred to as “compensatory damages.” This is what that phrase means—they are compensation for the losses the victim sustained.
There are several types of damages recoverable after a fall in Glen Cove. They include:
Current Expenses and Losses
Medical costs, any related care costs, out-of-pocket expenses, losses of income if you missed time at your job
Future Expenses and Losses
Future treatment, ongoing care and support, related expenses, and lost wages
Pain and suffering and other intangible physical and emotional injuries
We Can Identify Your Damages
While most falls only cause relatively minor-to-moderate injuries, some are much more serious. If your case involves catastrophic, lifelong impairments, or if your loved one died as a result of a fall, our team will carefully identify additional types of damages that may be available to you because of your loss. This could include damages for diminished quality of life, reduced ability to earn a living, and wrongful death damages for surviving loved ones.

Time Limits on Filing a Slip and Fall Civil Suit in New York State
There are deadlines that apply to preparing a case and taking it to trial in New York State. Victims of fall injuries generally have three years under CVP § 214, but there are exceptions to this statute. Some of these exceptions can dramatically decrease the time you have to file documents to begin your case. For example, you may only have three months to notify the potential defendants in your case if they are a government agency or municipality, per NY GMU § 50-E. Wrongful death actions also carry shorter time limits.
When we file paperwork to begin a lawsuit, it does not mean the case will always go to trial. Settlements are possible throughout this process. However, if we take your case before a judge and jury, we will represent your best interests and present a strong argument to show negligence, liability, and the value of your losses.
