Types Of Compensation Available To Long Island Personal Injury Victims
Individuals who have been injured due to another’s negligence have the option to bring forth a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party and recoup compensation for any of the following damages they might have sustained as a result of the injury:
Medical Expenses: An accident can cause an individual to sustain serious physical injuries which might require the victim to undergo numerous medical procedures. The exorbitant cost of these recurring treatments can be financially crippling for the victim and his or her family, especially if the medical costs are not fully covered by insurance. Consequently, victims have the option to file a lawsuit in order to recoup compensation for the medical costs they have incurred.
Property Damage: Victims may have grounds to file a legal claim and recover compensation if their property has been damaged by another party’s negligence.
Income Loss: Depending on the severity of the injury, accident victims might be required to leave the workforce either temporarily or permanently. In either case, the victim and his or her family is likely to face considerable financial strain. Consequently, victims have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover compensation for any lost income and any damage to their future earning potential.
Pain & Suffering: This pertains to a category of non-economic damages. Victims have the option to recoup compensation for any long-term pain and suffering caused by the accident. Damages may include any and all types of physical or bodily pain, physical deformities caused by the injury and loss of life's enjoyment.
Wrongful Death: If the injury leads to a fatality, the victim’s family can file a lawsuit on the victim’s behalf against the responsible person or entity. A wrongful death claim can secure compensation for the victim’s medical costs, funeral arrangements, lost wages and loss of consortium.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?

In the case that an individual fails to file a lawsuit within the designated time period, the injured party may be forever banned from recovering compensation for the damages they have sustained. The statute of limitations in New York State varies on a case-by-case basis.
