Building a Case Based on a CRPS Diagnosis on Long Island

CRPS generally begins with some type of trauma. The victim suffers injuries because of a car crash, fall, dog bite, on-the-job injury, construction site injury, or another incident. This injury triggers CRPS through a process researchers do not yet understand. This condition is often chronic and progressive, although acute cases do occur.

Here’s what you can expect by retaining our legal team:

We Determine the At-Fault and Liable Parties in Your CRPS Case

We must identify the at-fault and liable parties to recover compensation and get justice. The at-fault party is generally the person or entity who caused the initial incident. For example, an at-fault driver might run a red light and cause a crash. A property owner might fail to clean a spill, causing a slip and fall. Once we discover the at-fault party, we can determine who should pay for your losses and go from there. The liable party in many cases is an insurance company.

We Investigate Your Incident and Injury’s Details

Your CRPS lawyer on Long Island must gather evidence to support your case, which may include:

  • Any official reports filed by first responders, such as the crash report from the police
  • Eyewitness interviews
  • Physical evidence from the scene
  • Videos of the incident
  • Photographs of the hazard, crash scene, or other important documentation
  • Accident scene surveys
  • Accident reconstruction data
  • Expert information about your prognosis, diagnosis, and future care expenses
  • Documentation of your damages, such as receipts
  • Forensic evidence

We may use other additional information than what’s listed here.

We Prove the Required Elements of Negligence

Using the evidence our team gathers, our attorneys can demonstrate negligence, which is a critical element of many personal injury cases.

Negligence consists of:

  • Duty of care. A civil obligation to keep others from reasonable harm.
  • Breach of duty. A violation of that obligation, usually through carelessness or recklessness.
  • Causation. Another party’s actions caused your condition.
  • Damages. You have expenses related to your injuries.

For example, imagine you fell in a restaurant and tore a ligament in your knee. As the knee healed, your pain and inflammation continued. Your doctor believes you could have CRPS. In this situation, the restaurant owner had a duty of care to keep customers safe. When someone spilled a drink on the floor, and no one cleaned it, they breached that duty. The spill caused your fall, injuries, and damages.

In this example, we could file an insurance claim based on the restaurant’s corporate liability insurance policy or sue for damages. The property owner’s negligence caused your injuries, and they are liable under premises liability laws on Long Island.

Options for Recovering Compensation in a CRPS Case on Long Island

There are several ways we can seek compensation for clients with CRPS after a personal injury incident on Long Island. Our team knows how to determine the options available and which approaches best suit our clients. Each case is different and could require a unique perspective.

In most personal injury incidents, such as falls or dog bites, options for seeking damages include:

  • Filing an insurance claim: Filing a claim based on the at-fault party’s liability insurance policy allows us to demand fair compensation from the insurer. We often negotiate appropriate settlements in these cases, recovering the money our clients need based on their cases’ facts.
  • Pursuing a lawsuit: A personal injury lawsuit allows us to ask the judge or jury to award fair compensation based on the evidence we present at trial. However, most lawsuits settle before going to trial.

Regardless of the approach we use, we hope to recoup compensation for your injury-related hardships. Sometimes, after we file a lawsuit, the liable insurer agrees to settle. This means, while your case unfolds at trial, we can continue settlement talks with the insurer.

When Would My Lawyer File a Civil Lawsuit?

While personal injury lawsuits are relatively rare, we may initiate this measure if:

  • The filing deadline is near, and we want to preserve your right to sue.
  • The insurer does not believe you have CRPS and refuses to settle.
  • The insurer employs bad faith insurance practices.
  • There are other reasons why we believe a lawsuit is a good option in your case.

If your case unfolds at trial, we can interview witnesses, present compelling evidence, and request that the judge and jury award what you’re owed.

Car Collision Cases Generally Don’t Require Third-Party Insurance Claims

Because state law requires no-fault insurance, car crash claims work differently than in fault-based states. For instance, in a slip and fall, you generally file a claim with the property owner’s insurance provider. That’s not the case for car collisions. In these situations, you file a claim with your own insurer.

Through your no-fault insurance policy, you can get compensated for basic expenses, such as medical bills, lost income, and certain out-of-pocket expenses up to the liable policy’s limits. It does not cover pain and suffering or other recoverable damages.

To pursue a fault-based claim (meaning a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer), you must show that your injuries are more serious than the basic coverage provided by this policy. Our team knows how to do this with well-documented CRPS cases and can fight for the fault-based compensation you deserve. If you were in a collision, we can navigate the claims process and everything it entails.

We Intend to Seek Maximum Recovery in Your Long Island CRPS Case

Recovering fair compensation for your expenses, losses, and CRPS diagnosis requires us to document your damages carefully and thoroughly. This can be difficult since there is no effective cure for CRPS, and many clinicians do not offer treatment. Still, we’re committed to seeking a fair outcome for your case.

As a part of investigating and building a case, our team also gathers documentation to show the expenses and losses you endured because of the incident, injuries, and ongoing pain condition.

This documentation may comprise:

  • Your relevant medical records
  • Medical bills
  • Related receipts
  • Income documents

We also have a network of medical experts we can call to analyze your condition and help us better document your:

  • Prognosis
  • Necessary future treatment and care
  • Level of disability
  • Options for returning to work

Many people ask: “What is the average settlement for a CRPS case?” The truth is, the answer really depends on your situation, as there is no average settlement value for these cases. Our team intends to seek compensation that accounts for your unique hardships, so you can start rebuilding your life.

Compensable Losses in Your Long Island CRPS Case

With this evidence, we can generally document your damages and seek compensation for:

  • Current medical bills and related expenses
  • Future treatment and care
  • Ongoing support costs
  • Income losses to date
  • Diminished ability to work and earn your previous income
  • Related expenses, such as driving to see a specialist, parking at appointments, and using adaptive devices
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Our attorneys know how to calculate the compensation available for your non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. These losses could make up a significant portion of your claim, so it’s important that we know their value when negotiating with the insurer.

We seek the compensation you deserve based on the facts of your case. This includes the symptoms of CRPS and the effects this can have on your ability to work, provide services for your family and home, and enjoy your previous activities.

The Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Lawsuits

There are strict deadlines regarding how long you have to sue following an injurious incident on Long Island. Per state law, victims generally have three years to file their cases. The deadline is shorter in wrongful death cases, with only two years from the death date to file. Missing the deadline could mean losing the right to sue. Without this option, it’s hard to recover fair compensation.

These deadlines are not set in stone, however. Some exceptions could apply, and some could give you less time to file. For example, the deadline comes much sooner when suing a government agency. Here, rather than a few years, you would only have a few months to get started. We can assess your case’s possible deadlines during your initial consultation with our team.

What Should I Do After Suffering CRPS on Long Island?

The steps you take after getting hurt play a critical role in your case’s outcome. If you’re unsure about your next steps, we encourage you to connect with our attorneys as soon as possible. Discussing your case with one of our attorneys ensures you understand what comes next for your case.

Some other post-injury considerations include:

  • Adhering to your treatment plan
  • Refraining from sharing information online about your condition
  • Refusing to give the insurer a recorded statement
  • Referring possible settlement offers to your lawyer
  • Keeping all documentation related to your damages
  • Recording the name and contact information of any witnesses

There’s no right way to act after suffering a serious injury. Yet, some actions could make the claims process easier. When you connect with our firm, we can explain more about your next steps, including what you should share with the liable insurance company.
