Types Of Compensation Available To Manhattan Personal Injury Victims
A personal injury can dramatically alter your quality of life. Accidents may lead to high medical bills, property damages, lost wages and pain or suffering. If you have been injured in an accident in Manhattan, you may be eligible to recoup compensation for the following:
Medical Expenses: An injury can result in surgeries and multiple visits to the doctor’s office. In some cases, the victim’s insurance does not cover the very high medical costs. Consequently, victims have the ability to bring forth a lawsuit against the responsible party to receive compensation for the medical expenses they have incurred as a result of their injuries.
Property Damage: If an accident causes damage to your property, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible party in order to recover compensation.
Income Loss: When an individual is forced to miss an extended period of work due to their injury, they may be able to recover compensation for any lost wages. Additionally, the victim can also recover compensation for any damage to their future earning potential.
Pain & Suffering: In addition to economic loss, individuals may also be compensated for any physical or emotional trauma they might have experienced due to the injury.
Wrongful Death: If an accident leads to fatal injuries or complications, the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit can recover compensation for future lost wages, as well as medical costs, funeral arrangements and pain or suffering endured by the victim or the victim’s family.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?
The statute of limitations is a law which limits the period of time an injured individual has to bring forth a lawsuit against the party responsible for the injury. If the individual fails to file the claim within that time period, he or she may be forever barred from receiving compensation. In New York State, the statute of limitations varies depending on the party being sued, as well as the age of the injured victim. Consequently, in order to avoid any conflict with the statute of limitations, it is imperative that accident victims contact a Manhattan personal injury lawyer immediately.
Our Manhattan Attorneys Take Cases On A Contingency Fee Basis
Contingent fees refer to charges that are only applied if there is a favorable result. Thus, our Manhattan personal injury lawyers only charge legal fees if we are able to recover compensation for you. Our clients do not pay up-front for our services. If we successfully recover damages, our legal fees will be applied, but they will be a mere fraction of your overall compensation.
