What is considered serious injury in New York
For some accidents especially car accidents cases in NY, a personal injury may not be filed if the injury is minor. For some injuries, the insurance covering the car or premises would provide financial coverage. This law is referred to as no-fault. A personal injury claim may be filed if the injury is serious, defined by:
- Loss of life
- Loss of pregnancy
- Loss of limb
- Resulting temporal disability for more than 90 days after the accident
- Resulting permanent disability.
An injury is regarded as catastrophic when it takes away the ability for the victim to ever enjoy life again. Such injuries may forever alter the looks, brain function, and locomotion of the individual. They often require intensive life-long treatment. The compensation to be awarded for such cases would be large enough to cover for the long-term medical bills and all the good things of life the victim has been deprived of.

Note that your injurer might be a very large and high-profile corporation such as a construction company or government enterprise. It may also be that your case lies with a big insurance company.

We will go to the depths of the law to ensure you get the justice you deserve.
Steps to take
Your attorney will first evaluate your case. Pieces of evidence must then be collected such as the healthcare you have received following the accident as well as the cost, police and/or witness report. These things will help back up our case once it has been filed.
As the case may be, it could be settled with your insurance company off-court or be litigated. Off-court settlements are quicker but most times you may end up not receiving the full amount due you. And while handling the case in court is more risky, it has the potential of giving you far more financial compensation. We understand this, and this is why we do our possible best to give you an all-round legal representation.
