Types Of Compensation Available To Brooklyn Personal Injury Victims
If you have been the victim of an accident and have sustained either economic or non-economic damages, you may be eligible to receive compensation for any of the following:
Medical Expenses: This particular category refers to medication, surgeries, doctor’s visits, physical therapy and rehabilitation costs that the victim had to pay for as a result of the injury he or she sustained. If the victim’s insurance does not fully cover all of the medical expenses, he or she may be eligible to receive compensation from the responsible party in the amount of their damages.
Property Damage: Any damage done to the victim’s property as a result of the accident may also be recovered from the responsible party.
Income Loss: Major injuries can sometimes leave victims out of work for an extended period of time. In such instances, the injured individual may be able to recover compensation for any lost wages caused by the injury. Additionally, injured individuals can collect compensation for any damage done to their future earning potential.
Pain & Suffering: The victim can recover compensation for any pain and suffering they were forced to endure due to their injury.
Wrongful Death: If the victim dies as a result of the accident, his or her family can file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party to recoup damages (medical bills, income loss, funeral costs and pain and suffering).
How Can Our Brooklyn Personal Injury Attorneys Help You?
Our personal injury lawyers have decades of litigating experience, which illustrates the knowledge and extensive expertise we bring to each case. Our firm works with leading financial, medical and investigative experts to corroborate your case and provide an accurate assessment of the damages you sustained from the accident. Our Brooklyn personal injury lawyers have no issue taking major insurance companies and hospitals to court. In fact, considering that several of our attorneys are former insurance defense lawyers, we are well-versed in the tactics employed by insurance adjustors and their methods for evaluating medical claims, injuries and damages.
What Is The Statute Of Limitations?
According to New York State law, there is a limited amount of time after the accident during which the victim can bring forth a claim against the responsible party. If the victim fails to do so within that time frame, he or she might be forever barred from receiving the compensation that he or she deserves. Because the statute of limitations varies on a case-by-case basis depending on the legal issues involved, it is imperative that you contact our Brooklyn personal injury lawyers today to avoid any conflict with the statute.
Our Brooklyn Attorneys Take Cases On A Contingency Fee Basis
We understand that experiencing a personal injury accident can be very expensive for an individual and his or her family. Additionally, we believe that every single person should have the right to obtain legal counsel and sue those who have negligently harmed them if the need arises. Should you choose to retain our legal services, you will not be charged in any way unless a monetary compensation is recovered. Our fees then will only be a fraction of that compensation.
