Types Of Compensation Available To Bronx Personal Injury Victims
Victims of personal injury accidents in the Bronx can file claims to recoup damages for any of the following:
Medical Expenses: In certain cases, an injury can cause serious physical trauma and force the victim to undergo several medical procedures. The exorbitant cost of medical treatments can place significant financial strain on the victim and his or her family, especially if their insurance is unable to cover the costs. By virtue of a personal injury lawsuit, victims may be able to recover compensation for any medical costs related to their injuries.
Property Damage: If an accident is directly responsible for damage to a victim’s property, then he or she may have a claim against the party who caused the accident.
Income Loss: Depending on the severity of the injury, individuals may be forced out of the workforce for a significant amount of time. Personal injury victims may be able to recoup compensation for any lost wages or any damage to their future earning potential.
Pain & Suffering: In addition to being compensated for economic damages, victims may also be compensated for non-economic damages, such as long-term pain and suffering resulting from the accident. Compensation 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: In the case that an individual dies due to an accident, the family of the deceased victim may be able to bring forth a lawsuit against the allegedly responsible party. The family may be able to recover compensation for conscious pain and suffering endured by the victim prior to death, as well as various categories of economic loss (including but not limited to lost income and the economic loss associated with losing a spouse or parent).
How Can Our Bronx Personal Injury Attorneys Help You?
All of our Bronx personal injury lawyers are extremely experienced and well-versed in handling all types of personal injury claims. Personal injury law is the only type of law that we practice. We are here to help, to answer your questions and to bring any and all claims on your behalf that best suit your needs as a seriously injured plaintiff. We understand that your individual matter is your only case and the outcome can be critical to your own future, as well as your family’s future. We believe there is almost always something more that can be done, or something performed differently or extraordinarily, that can help improve the ultimate outcome of your case.
What Is The Statute Of Limitations?
The statute of limitations is legislation that limits the time period within which a victim can bring forth a claim against the allegedly responsible party. Failure to file a lawsuit within the designated time period can result in the victim being forever barred from attaining justice and compensation for the damages he or she has sustained. In New York, the statute of limitations varies depending on the specifics of your personal injury case. Our Bronx lawyers are familiar with the time constraints and process all cases in a timely manner in order to avoid any issues.
Our Bronx Attorneys Take Cases On A Contingency Fee Basis
We understand how expensive a personal injury can be – not only for the victim, but also for the victim’s family. Our Bronx personal injury lawyers believe that everyone should have the right to obtain legal counsel no matter their financial standing. We take cases on a contingency fee basis; you will only pay for our legal services if we recover compensation on your behalf. Even then, our fees will only be a fraction of your overall compensation.
