Recovering Damages After a Personal Injury Incident
Many personal injury cases settle outside of a trial with the injured party and their legal team negotiating a settlement agreement. We can work with the insurance company representing the at-fault party to try to negotiate a fair payout on your behalf. This may allow both sides to have more control over the outcome of the case than they would if they went to trial.
However, if the responsible party or their insurance company does not make you a fair offer, our team will be happy to file a lawsuit and take your case to trial.
The Types of Damages You May Be Able to Recover
The types of damages that may be available to you in a personal injury case include:
- Treatment costs
- Care and support
- Future care needs and medical expenses
- Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Other non-economic losses
Wrongful death damages are available to surviving family members when victims of a personal injury incident pass away from their injuries. Our firm can also help you with a wrongful death case.
Understanding Personal Injuries Under New York Law
Under New York law, personal injury cases generally require us to prove that the at-fault party caused the incident and injuries through negligence. Negligence occurs when someone carelessly or purposely disregards rules or acceptable behavior, and this leads to injuries. For example, when a boat owner operates their craft while intoxicated, this could be a negligent act.
Some types of common personal injury incidents include:
- Bus and subway crashes
- Pedestrian collisions
- Boating collisions and injuries
- Slip and fall injuries
- Trip and fall injuries
- Dog bites
- Defective product injuries
- Nursing home negligence
- Medical malpractice injuries
The “Serious” Injury Threshold For Car Crashes Cases in New York
While car crashes also fall under the personal injury category, New York State laws make the way we handle these cases somewhat different. Following a traffic collision, you will need to show you qualify to pursue pain and suffering damages. This generally requires using medical records, other documents, or expert testimony to prove that your injuries are “serious” as defined under ISC §5102(d).
Statute of Limitations On Suing the At-Fault Party
We generally have three years from the incident date to sue the party who caused our client’s injuries under CVP §214. Failure to take action by this deadline could result in forfeiting your right to take the case to trial, so it is vital that we do not miss it. If you are pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit, the general deadline to use is two years, per EPTL §5-4.1.
In either type of case, some circumstances could alter these general deadlines and give you less time to sue—for example, a lawsuit against a municipality.
