Negligent Acts Support Personal Injury Actions

When another person or entity makes a careless mistake, acts recklessly, or otherwise commits a negligent act, it can cause others to get hurt. If this happened to you, you were likely the victim of a personal injury incident. You may be eligible to file a claim to hold the at-fault party accountable for the damages you endured.

A Glen Cove personal injury lawyer from Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. will represent you based on contingent fees if we believe we can help you recover a just payout. We represent clients who suffered a wide range of injuries in almost any type of negligence incident. Some examples of personal injury incidents we work on include:

  • Falls
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Construction accidents
  • Boating collisions
  • Dog bites
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective product injuries

These are just a few common examples. We have represented cases like these as well as other forms of personal injury for our clients, with our case results and their testimonials speaking to our experience.

Types of Negligence That Could Be the Basis for Your Case

Our personal injury team can translate legal concepts into terms you understand. One of the most important is negligence, the careless act that caused you harm. In some of the personal injury incidents we listed above, negligence could be:

  • Drunk or distracted driving
  • Loose handrails
  • Lack of security
  • Unrestrained dogs
  • Medication dosage errors
  • Faulty equipment

While dissimilar, what these have in common is that they represent a failure on the part of someone who should have acted to prevent an injury. For instance, a texting driver fails to pay attention to the road, and a negligent manufacturer doesn’t check the quality of their products before selling them.

That failure is called a violation of a duty of care. It’s important to remember that the simple act of not restraining a dog, for example, is not the grounds for a case. Only if the dog bites you could you pursue compensation.

When we investigate the negligence that caused you injuries, we connect the dots for you, the other party, and possibly a jury if your case goes to trial. Think of proving negligence like a math equation that we lay out with evidence: violation of a duty of care + injury = damages.

Specific Laws Apply to Personal Injury Cases Involving Car Accidents

Traffic collisions may also support a personal injury case, although the rules for navigating these claims are somewhat different. This could include:

  • Motorcycle collisions
  • Pedestrian crashes
  • Bicycle crashes
  • Car crashes
  • Truck collisions
  • Uber and Lyft rideshare collisions
  • Taxicab crashes

When it comes to traffic collisions, New York State requires drivers to carry no-fault auto insurance. This coverage pays out for medical care and lost wages and might be the only option for seeking compensation in many crashes. The exception to this is for motorcycles.

However, to pursue additional damages for a motor vehicle crash, under New York Civil Insurance Laws § 5102(d), we must prove our clients have a “serious” injury or meet another exception to these rules before pursuing a third-party lawsuit for pain and suffering damages.

You can learn if your injuries may qualify you to pursue a personal injury lawsuit by calling Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. A team member will review your case with you for free.

At Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P., we want to take care of your legal case so you can focus on your physical healing and emotional recovery. We will investigate your case, assign liability to the at-fault parties, determine their available insurance coverages, and file claims on your behalf.

More than just knowing the law, we get to know you, and you get to know us. We’re a team that works together to obtain your financial recovery.

Valuing Your Case

We will also estimate your damages to provide context for negotiating a settlement. Depending on the facts of your case, we may need to put a value on:

  • Your current expenses and losses
  • Your future expenses, including medical treatment, care, and lost income
  • Your intangible losses, including pain and suffering

This process often relies on experts who can help us understand and explain your prognosis, ongoing needs, and the impact your injuries will have on your future. These experts may include medical doctors, specialists, economists, and more. Our team can work with such experts to understand and document what led to your accident, who caused it, and what you lost as a result.

Filing a Claim or Lawsuit

Only once we understand the value of your case—including your future and intangible damages—can we file an insurance claim and begin to negotiate for a just settlement. We will represent your best interests during the negotiations process and fight for the compensation we believe you deserve. If no settlement can be reached, we are willing to proceed to trial with a lawsuit if that’s what it takes.

We want you to know we are here to answer your questions and provide prompt responses to our clients when they have concerns. You can call our team in Nassau County now for a free conversation about your legal options.

Recovering Damages in a Personal Injury Legal Claim in Glen Cove

At Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P., we seek damages for our personal injury clients that restore their financial security, allow them to hold the negligent party responsible, and ensure they can get the treatment and care they need in the future.

We do not believe victims of personal injuries should pay for their care or other expenses out of their own pockets. After all, they did not cause the incident or their injuries. The liable party should cover these costs.

To this end, we pursue damages for their healthcare expenses, such as:

  • Current medical treatment
  • Future care costs
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to their injuries

In your case, that could mean getting help paying for that $30,000 bill from your three-day hospitalization or reimbursing you for the cost of prescriptions and even over-the-counter medication.

Damages can also help provide for secondary or related issues. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports epilepsy and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as co-occurring developmental disabilities in children with cerebral palsy. Thus, if your child suffered a birth injury due to malpractice, resulting in cerebral palsy with one or both of these related issues, compensation could provide additional financial support.

Career Consequences

For our personal injury clients, we also seek to cover their related losses, such as the income they missed while their injuries kept them out of work. Several types of income qualify for reimbursement:

  • Hourly wage jobs
  • Salaried positions
  • Commissions and sales
  • Side gigs and monetized hobbies

We evaluate future earning losses as well with the help of economists, actuaries, and other experts. You could receive damages for your reduced ability to earn due to your injuries.

Personal Losses

Lastly, we want to help our clients recover compensation for their pain and suffering and other non-economic losses, such as:

  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Diminished quality of life

There are statutes of limitations that apply to personal injury cases on Long Island. Per CPLR § 214, we generally have three years to begin a civil lawsuit and prepare to take a case to trial. However, there are sometimes exceptions that shorten this deadline, such as if your lawsuit is against a government agency. This is one reason we encourage you to contact us as soon as you can about your case.
