Our attorneys realize that personal injury victims may be forced to face considerable financial strain. As a result, our personal injury lawyers thoroughly investigate all of our clients' claims. We hire medical experts to review the records surrounding the injury and use the information we obtain to pursue maximum compensation. Our process has led to a number of favorable verdicts and settlements, including millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.*
Types Of Compensation Available To Upstate NY Personal Injury Victims
Potential compensation available in a personal injury lawsuit includes, but is not limited to:
Medical Expenses: Accident victims may have to undergo several surgeries, doctor’s visits and rehabilitation as a result of their injuries. Individuals can receive compensation for their past and future medical bills when they exceed the cost of insurance.
Property Damage: Damage to one’s property can lead to costly repairs. A property owner may file a lawsuit claiming property damages if the negligence of another person or entity caused the incident that led to those damages.
Income Loss: As a result of their injuries, victims may have to undergo several surgeries and even go to rehabilitation. In such an instance, the injured individual may miss work for an extended period of time. Though workers’ compensation may provide partial relief, it might not be substantial; victims may bring forth a lawsuit against the responsible party in order to recoup lost wages.
Pain & Suffering: Victims may be eligible to receive compensation for the elongated pain and suffering (both physical and emotional) they had to endure due to the injury.
Wrongful Death: If an injury ends up being fatal and results in the death of the victim, the family may be eligible to receive compensation for lost wages, medical bills and funeral costs.

The statute of limitations refers to the time period in which a personal injury victim must bring forth a claim. If you fail to bring forward a claim within the designated time period, you may be prevented from receiving compensation for the damages you have sustained. In New York State, the statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case, as well as the details of the case.
