There are some crucial steps you can take to maximize a personal injury settlement. Evidence is paramount in any case, which is why you should be sure to document any relevant aspects of your situation when possible. Visiting a doctor to seek prompt medical attention is another great way to track your losses when seeking to maximize a settlement.
Quick acting can also help you reduce potential errors and mismatched information that may otherwise derail your case. A complete evaluation of all damages, including physical harm, psychological trauma, and other losses will also position you to have a more advantageous case.
Finally, you can contact our lawyers who will represent you and work to recover any funds you may be entitled to collect through a personal injury settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, we can litigate and try your case.
Pursuing Recoverable Damages After Suffering a Personal Injury
When you suffer a personal injury caused by another party, you may be owed compensation. Recovery amounts vary depending on the severity of your damages, as well as the different kinds of losses that you suffer.
Potential Losses You May Collect
- Medical transportation and emergency services
- Ongoing and future medical care
- Appointments and surgeries
- X-rays and exams
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Medication costs
- Lost income
In Addition to the Damages Above, Pain & Suffering is Recoverable Via a Third-Party Claim or Lawsuit.
How Our Lawyers Can Assist You with Your Case
After an incident that causes an injury to you or your loved one, our team will get to work investigating the incident in great detail. We will look at the site where you were injured, along with the roles of any other parties. Our lawyers can interview witnesses and collect any relevant evidence that may provide more information.
As we are representing you, we will also communicate with other parties involved in the case. For example, we can speak with the other drivers and their insurance companies for you. In this process, we will negotiate in our attempt to make a favorable compensatory recovery on your behalf.
The Costs of Working with a Personal Injury Lawyer
Costs are a top concern for many personal injury victims. When you work with us, you can expect total transparency on our fee schedule. We operate on a contingency fee model, which means that we only collect our fee when we collect a settlement for you. On top of this, our team also offers free case consultations.
Deadlines and Other Potential Limitations
New York’s Civil Practice Law and Rules, “CPLR” sets the guidelines that control how long you have to pursue a civil case. New York’s CVP §214 indicates, when you suffer a personal injury in the state, you generally have up to three years to file a lawsuit and pursue justice.
Failing to take action within this period will leave you with no options for moving your case forward. While this is one timeline, there are others that may apply in your case that could significantly reduce the time you have to act. For example, when pursuing a case against a municipality, or other governmental entity, your time could be as short as 90 days.
When you connect with one of our lawyers after an injury, we get to work on building a case to represent you. We will discuss any timelines that may apply in your case.
Establishing a Liable Party
Liability is an important piece to all personal injury cases. Our lawyers will strive to establish a liable party by:
- Collecting evidence
- Interviewing relevant parties
- Examining any laws that relate to the situation
If another party acted recklessly, you deserve answers.

Next Steps After Being Injured
After an injury, it is important to seek medical attention right away, as even common and seemingly minor personal injuries can become much worse when you fail to seek timely treatment.
Whiplash, for example, is one widespread injury that is often associated with car collisions and other common injury-causing events. As the Mayo Clinic shows, whiplash can lead to many unpleasant outcomes. These can include a limited range of motion in the neck, fatigue, and memory problems.
From here, you can begin to assess your legal needs. Our team is standing by to answer your questions and address your concerns.
