Personal injuries are often the result of sudden and unexpected accidents. When you or a family member are injured through no fault of your own, you may have legal options for collecting compensation from the person or entity who created the situation that led to your injuries.

Negligence and Personal Injury Cases
Most personal injury cases are the result of negligence on the part of the at-fault party. Negligence means that the person responsible for your injuries owed you a standard of care and should have taken reasonable actions to ensure your safety.
For example, if your injuries were caused by a dog bite because the dog’s owner failed to leash or control their dog that they knew or had reason to know might bite, you may be entitled to compensation. If your injuries were the result of a vehicle collision because the at-fault driver was driving while distracted, you may also be entitled to collect compensation.
Types of Personal Injury Incidents
Some common causes of personal injury cases are:
- Car crashes
- Truck crashes
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Dangerous drugs
There are many more situations where a personal injury case could be filed after a negligent act violates a duty of care.
If you believe that someone’s negligent act caused your injuries in Southampton, regardless of the situation, contact Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. at (631) 451-7900. A member from our team can discuss your case and if we may be able to represent you in a personal injury lawsuit.

We Can Help You Demonstrate the Value of Your Claim
One of the tasks a lawyer from Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. will take on if we represent you is to put a value on your damages.
This means producing evidence of the monetary costs that the accident has caused and will cause you in the future. We can then use this evidence to negotiate for a fair settlement offer with the insurance companies or to argue for your compensation at trial if we file a personal injury lawsuit.
Recoverable economic and noneconomic damages in a personal injury case can include:
- All injury-related medical expenses
- Loss of current and future income
- Pain and suffering and mental distress
- Disfiguring scars and physical disabilities
If your loved one was killed due to another party’s negligent actions, you may be able to recover compensation in a wrongful death case. Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. also represents surviving family members in Southampton wrongful death lawsuits.

File Your Personal Injury Claim Without Delay
New York imposes a strict statute of limitations on personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. This is an amount of time you have to file a claim against the person responsible for the injuries you or a loved one sustained.
Per CPLR Section § 214, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit, while a wrongful death lawsuit must generally be filed within two years of your loved one’s death. If you allow this time limit to expire before taking action, it could prevent you from recovering compensation in a lawsuit.
Some factors might alter the time you have to file a lawsuit and force you to act sooner, such as naming a municipality as the defendant.
