Accidents happen all the time, and they can happen to anyone. Personal injuries sustained in an accident can range from non-serious bruising and sprains to brain trauma, broken bones, total body incapacitation, and even death. If someone’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness leads to an accident that harms an innocent victim, the injured person may have grounds for a personal injury claim.
Personal injuries may require many different treatments, including doctor consultations, diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, therapy, and medication. The costs of treatment can quickly spiral out of hand, and it may be difficult for you to cope physically and financially with the fallout. If you suffered injuries of any kind because of the actions of another party, a personal injury lawyer serving Islip may be able to help.

If you or a loved one was hurt due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to pursue these damages:
Wrongful death damages may be available to those who lost a loved one due to a personal injury incident. Recoverable losses could include memorial service and burial expenses, end-of-life medical care bills, or loss of financial assistance.
There isn’t much time to act after you or a loved one was hurt due to someone else’s negligence. Your timeline is based on the circumstances of your case.
There could be exceptions to your applicable time frame, like if a municipality bears responsibility for the incident. In fact, you could have as little as 90 days to act. Still, we urge you to start working on your case right away. The state may prohibit you from seeking damages for the liable party if you try to file past the deadline.

Personal injuries can take many forms and can occur in a wide range of settings. Injuries can have a devastating impact on a victim and his or her family.
Examples of how and where personal injuries can occur are as below.
According to Mayo Clinic, vehicular collisions are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), reports that 36,560 people were killed on U.S. roadways in 2018. The productivity losses, lost time from work, medical care costs, and insurance and litigation costs of these crashes are estimated to cost society billions of dollars every year.
However, for individuals and families, the costs and personal injuries of a vehicular collision go far beyond simple dollars and cents. A victim may take years to recover from serious injuries or the loss of a loved one. Permanent injuries and fatalities can forever alter the course of the lives of the families affected.
Slip and falls are a leading cause of injury to older populations, but they can occur to anyone. Cluttered work floors, poorly lit stairwells, uneven surfaces, and liquid spills can cause a slip and fall.
Nursing home residents and construction workers are often involved in slip-and-falls, but such incidents can even occur in traditional office settings and often lead to serious head and back injuries. They can also lead to death. There were 37,455 fall-related deaths in the U.S. in 2018.
Drowning and suffocation are the leading causes of unintentional death in infants and children under the age of four. Unsafe pools, unsafe products, and poor supervision at daycares and recreational facilities are common causes of drowning and suffocation in people in younger age brackets.
Treatments at medical facilities expose individuals to many risks that can cause personal injuries. Birth-related emergencies can lead to brain or nerve damage in a newborn, and surgical errors damage nerves and organs. Testing and diagnostic errors, reporting errors, and administrative errors in a hospital setting can be detrimental to the health and well-being of a patient.

Accidents, falls, unintentional errors, and recklessness can lead to every conceivable form of personal injury. Here are a few examples of the personal injuries from such incidents:
Depending on the type of accident and the factors that caused or contributed to it, a personal injury lawyer serving Islip may be able to assist you. We can help collect the evidence needed to establish a personal injury claim against the at-fault parties responsible for your losses.
The examples above are a brief sample of where and how accidents can occur. Liability for any given incident will be based on who caused it and how. Consider the following examples.
For each of these cases, a different party – or multiple parties – may bear some of the liability for the incident and injuries. Depending on the case at hand, a doctor, a nurse, a truck driver, a trucking company, a government office, a nursing home staff member or administrator, or a business owner may be responsible for your injuries.
Take these precautions if you want to file a personal injury case:
Getting yourself checked out is the best thing you can do for yourself after you’re injured. The doctor can treat your known injuries and diagnose you with ones that haven’t shown symptoms yet.
Depending on the seriousness of your injuries, the doctor may construct a long-term treatment plan for you. Make sure you adhere to this entire schedule. The doctor will release you when they deem you to have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI).
Waiting too long to get treatment or cutting your treatment short could harm your health and the validity of your case. For instance, if the insurer finds out, then the adjuster may claim that something else caused your injuries or that you made them worse.
If the insurance company gets in touch with you, refer them to your personal injury attorney. We will protect you from the insurer acting in bad faith. As such, during the call, the adjuster may try to:
Know that you don’t have to give information to the at-fault party’s liability adjuster. Once you retain us, we’ll take care of everything else from there.
