When someone has been injured in an accident, the days and weeks that follow can be overwhelming and stressful. In those hectic days, it is not unusual for an insurance company to reach out to the injured victim to offer a settlement or ask questions about the accident. This is a frequent tactic utilized by insurance companies to strengthen their case. Important tips when dealing with insurance companies after a serious accident:
The term “compensatory damages” refers to monetary compensation awarded to the injured victim. Compensatory damages may include measurable losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, lost vacation time, or the loss of earned sick time. Compensatory damages may also include other immeasurable losses, such as the victim’s pain and suffering, the value of which must be estimated.
Every state has a statute of limitations, the legal timeframe for filing lawsuits and other civil actions, which varies depending upon the state and the type of action. New York’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years from the time the injury occurred. This is a significant deadline: claims must be filed in the courts prior to this time, or the case will not be heard. Furthermore, once the deadline has passed, the injured victim will no longer be able to obtain any compensatory damages for the injuries they sustained.
No personal injury claim is exactly like another. If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, the facts of your claim will guide it on its own unique path. There are, however, basic components of personal injury law that apply to all cases. In fact, many people who bring personal injury claims have questions, and fortunately, we have the answers you seek.
If you have been injured by someone else's negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your economic and non-economic losses. Personal injury victims often seek the following damages:
While it is perfectly legal for you to handle your personal injury case on your own, it is neither in your best interests nor in the best interests of your claim. There are simply far too many complicating factors that make working with an experienced New York City personal injury attorney the most efficient and effective option. These complications include:
You’ve been injured and should focus on regaining your health while you leave the complicated legal process ahead to a professional with extensive experience in the matter.
Many personal injury claimants worry about being able to afford quality legal representation. The fact is, however, that reputable personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means that they don't get paid until you are compensated either via a settlement agreement with the insurance company involved or an amount awarded to you by the court.
When you experience an accident and sustain injuries, your priority should be your healthy recovery. Yet when faced with mounting medical expenses and lost wages from time away from work, you may shift your focus to obtaining whatever money you can from the insurance company as quickly as possible. During this time, it is important to understand that insurance companies are acting to protect their own interests, not yours. The knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Lipsig Law in Brooklyn protect your rights and advocate on your behalf until we succeed in securing just compensation for the injuries you have sustained.
