Types Of Compensation Available To NYC Personal Injury Victims
Personal injury victims in NYC are entitled to receive compensation for any and all accident-related expenses. These expenses might include economic and non-economic damages that were sustained in the past or might be sustained in the future. Victims may be able to recover compensation for:
Medical Expenses: Following an accident, victims may have to undergo extensive treatments, surgeries and rehabilitation. In certain cases, insurance may not fully cover the cost of these procedures. Victims who file a personal injury claim may be able to recoup compensation for past and future medical expenses resulting from their injuries.
Property Damage: Any property damages stemming from an accident may be able to be recovered in a lawsuit against the party responsible for the damages.
Income Loss: Victims may be forced to miss work due to their injuries, which can result in lost wages and damage done to future earning potential, as well as a loss of union benefits. Compensation for lost benefits and wages may be included within a personal injury claim.
Pain & Suffering: This category pertains to non-economic damages as it refers to emotional trauma and long-term pain the victim will have to endure as a result of the sustained injury. Emotional pain and suffering can be quantified in order to receive compensation.
Wrongful Death: In the case that an individual passes away due to a personal injury, families can file a claim on behalf of the deceased. Compensation may include funerary expenses, lost wages and loss of consortium.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?
The statute of limitations states that injured persons only have a certain amount of time during which they can bring forth their lawsuit against the negligent party. After this time has lapsed, victims are barred from securing the compensation they rightly deserve. It is imperative that you contact our office immediately to avoid any conflict with the statute. Our personal injury lawyers understand the time constraints associated with the statute of limitations and process all of our cases in a timely and efficient manner.
Our NYC Attorneys Take Cases On A Contingency Fee Basis
We understand that personal injury victims may not have the finances to afford an experienced attorney. As a result, we charge contingent fees – meaning you do not owe us any fees unless we are able to secure compensation on your behalf. If we do not recover a monetary settlement, then you do not owe us for our legal services. If our personal injury lawyers successfully recover compensation for you, our legal fees will be a mere fraction of your overall compensation.
