Getting the Help You Need Now
The only way to ensure that you are getting the most extensive recovery possible after an accident is with the help of an experienced attorney. Without the help of a Yonkers personal injury lawyer, you may end up settling your case for far less than it is worth.
Insurance companies routinely deny valid claims or try to downplay injuries in order to get you to settle quickly for the least amount of money. You should never agree to a settlement after an accident without having your case reviewed by an attorney.
Insurance companies use high-pressure, unprincipled tactics to try to get you to close out your case. Let our attorneys review the offer to ensure that you are getting full and fair compensation based on your injuries.
Potential Damages After an Accident Involving Injuries
If you have suffered serious injuries after an accident, you might be entitled to damages from those who are responsible. In order to obtain compensation, you may have to file a lawsuit.
It is imperative that you act quickly as you may only have a limited amount of time to bring a claim for damages. Failure to bring an action for recovery within the statute of limitations may result in your claim being denied.
Common damages after an accident include compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Costs related to therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
After suffering unthinkable harm due to another person’s negligence, you may wonder how much your claim is worth. It is important to note that no two personal injury cases are the same; each has its own unique set of facts and circumstances that contribute to the overall outcome.
In order to determine the value of your case or how much you should ask for in damages, you will need to take into account the extent of your injuries and the factors that contributed to your accident. Our Yonkers personal injury lawyers can help explain your rights and your potential for recovery.
Questions that may help determine the value of your claim:
- Were you partially at fault?
- Was a party’s misconduct egregious?
- Was there gross negligence?
- Are there multiple parties that may be held liable?
- Were your injuries catastrophic, leaving you unable to work?
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
In general, under New York Civil Practice Law & Rules Section 214(5), all actions to recover damages for a personal injury must be brought within three years. There are exceptions to this general rule, so it is always recommended that you speak directly with a Yonkers personal injury lawyer to determine if you have a valid claim for recovery that is still within the statutory limitations.
Under New York Estates, Powers & Trusts Section 5-4.1, an action for recovery based on wrongful death must be brought within two years after the decedent’s death. If you have suffered the tragedy of losing a loved one because of another person’s wrongful act or neglect, contact our offices immediately.
