- Medical expenses for the treatment of your injuries: These costs can include things like the ambulance, emergency room, hospital, surgery, doctors, imaging studies, lab work, physical therapy, and prescription drugs.
- Rehabilitation: Some cases of devastating injuries require an extended stay in a specialized treatment facility or even out-patient care.
- Long-term care: In some cases, a victim’s injuries leave them in need of ongoing daily assistance with medical treatment and personal tasks.
- Lost wages: You can seek compensation if you missed work without pay, or had to use accrued time. This category can include wages, salary, self-employment, and other income.
- Impaired ability to work: Severe injuries can cause a person to make less money afterward or be unable to maintain gainful employment.

How We Prove Negligence in Personal Injury Cases
Most personal injury claims are the result of someone’s carelessness. If someone else’s mistake, error, or failure to act caused you to suffer harm, you might have a negligence claim. We have to prove all four of these factors to hold the defendant liable:
- Duty of care. The defendant must have had a legal duty of care toward you. For example, the owner of a hotel has a duty to take reasonable measures to keep the premises safe for paying guests.
- Breach of duty. When the conduct fails to measure up to the standard of the legal obligation, it is negligence. Let’s say that the hotel had a pool with lights underwater for nighttime swimming. The hotel had a responsibility to make sure that the pool lights did not cause harm to swimmers. In this example, there was a short in the wiring of one of the lights, causing an electrical shock to anyone who made contact with the fixture. The hotel was negligent.
- The carelessness must be the thing that caused the harm. In this scenario, an older guest went swimming. He brushed against the underwater light and sustained a severe electrical shock, which stopped his heart, resulting in his death. The hotel’s negligence caused the injury and wrongful death.
- Measurable damages. You must have quantifiable harm to pursue a personal injury claim. Physical injury satisfies this requirement.
Sometimes, fault is not entirely clear. Call us so that a personal injury lawyer serving Holtsville can evaluate your incident to see if someone might be liable for your injuries.
