Important things to know about personal injury law in New York
Personal injury is any injury sustained on the body or mind of a person of which someone else is to blame for the injury. Most personal injury cases in New York are the results of accidents of which one party acted unreasonably or negligently, consequently leading to the accident.
Personal injury claims in New York are dealt with according to the State laws. For a personal injury claim to be recognized in a civil court in the state and for damages to be awarded, it must be proven to be in accordance with the laws. It must be proven that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care but neglected the duty, and that this led to an accident in which the plaintiff was harmed.
Statute of Limitations
Depending on the nature of the injury, the law also specifies the mode and time limit for filing the lawsuit. The maximum time limit is 3 years from the date of the incident.
As there are many factors surrounding your case which possess great influence on its success in court, it is highly crucial you discuss your case with an experienced attorney early. Call us.
If you (or your vehicle) have been hit by another vehicle whose driver probably acted unreasonably and you ended up with some injuries, you most likely would be thinking of making a case in order to get the compensation you need to fix your vehicle and treat your wounds. If your accident occurred in The Bronx, NY 10474, it is important to note that New York is a no-fault state. This law applies to automobile accidents in which minor injuries were sustained. By the no-fault law, your injuries and medical bills would be covered by the vehicle’s insurance regardless of who was at fault. But this law is limited to minor injuries. For serious injuries involving loss of life, loss of limb, miscarriage, fracture, disfiguration, temporal or permanent disability, a personal injury claim may be filed.
In a personal injury case, faults are compared. The law acknowledges the fact that people may want to take advantage of others even when themselves were personally at fault. If you had a hand in your own misfortune, the extent of your fault would be compared to that of the defendant. If they were also partly at fault, then the damages they would be asked to pay would be equivalent to the percentage of their fault. This obviously would be less than what you would have gotten had you been completely faultless.
Without bias for the status of who you are suing, we would apply the law to its extremes to ensure justice is served. Knowing the trauma our clients must be going through, we treat them with empathy and only get our fee when we have won you damages. Give us a call to speak with a personal injury attorney near you.
