Types Of Compensation Available To New York Personal Injury Victims
If you have been injured in an accident and sustained economic or non-economic damages, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:
Medical Expenses: Serious injuries suffered in an accident may cost a fortune in medical bills and require numerous procedures, as well as frequent trips to the doctor. In some cases, the victim's insurance will not cover the full cost of medical treatment. A personal injury lawsuit can recoup compensation for any medical bills not covered by insurance and any future medical expenses caused by the injury.
Property Damage: If an accident causes property damages, the property owner may be able to recover compensation from the party responsible for the accident.
Income Loss: When an individual suffers an injury in an accident, they may be forced to miss significant time at work while recovering. While victims may be able to recoup some of their lost wages through workers' compensation, they may not be able to receive compensation for all losses. As a result, victims may be able to recover compensation for any losses that workers' compensation doesn't cover in a personal injury lawsuit. Furthermore, if the victim is forced to permanently leave the workforce, they may be able to receive compensation for any loss of future earnings.
Pain & Suffering: Pain and suffering are non-economic damages for which personal injury victims may be compensated. Non-economic damages include constant physical pain, emotional trauma and a loss of life's enjoyment.
Wrongful Death: When an individual dies in an accident, the victim’s family may be able to file a lawsuit on his or her behalf. Families may be able to recover compensation for their loved one's lost wages and future earning potential, as well as any funeral costs or loss of consortium.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?
New York State places a time restriction on how long an injured individual has to file a lawsuit. This time restriction is known as a statute of limitations. If a victim fails to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, they may permanently lose their opportunity to recover compensation for the pain and suffering they were forced to endure. In New York, the statute of limitations for filing an injury claim varies depending on the specifics of the accident, as well as the parties involved.
Our New York Attorneys Take Cases On A Contingency Fee Basis
Our firm understands how costly legal services can be for clients. In order to help ease the financial burden on victims, our New York injury lawyers take cases on a contingency fee basis. Our clients only owe us legal fees if we successfully recover compensation on their behalf. If compensation is not secured, then clients do not owe us for our legal services.
