Burden of Proof in Accident Cases
In cases that involve negligence, the accident victim must be able to demonstrate that another person acted unreasonably under the circumstances and that this negligence proximately led to the damages and injuries suffered. In the case of motor vehicle accidents, the accident victim may file a claim for no-fault insurance. He or she could also bring a claim against the negligent driver in cases that involve permanent injuries.
With on-the-job illnesses and injuries, the accident victim may be eligible to recover various forms of compensation, regardless of who caused the accident. To be eligible to make a New York workers’ compensation claim, the accident victim must have suffered an injury while working within the scope of employment – and while working on the job.
The damages available in accident cases depend largely upon the extent of the injuries, the amounts of the medical bills incurred, and the extent of permanence (if any) from which the accident victim is expected to suffer.
Compensable damages in a New York City accident case might include damages for medical bills, missed time from work, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, mental distress, inconvenience, and loss of spousal companionship.
The experienced New York City personal injury attorneys at Lipsig, Shapey, Manus & Moverman may be able to make a claim for damages in your personal injury case.
