Accidents happen daily in New York and quite very often, it is because one party had been negligent. In the end, someone else has to suffer serious bodily injuries that may even last their whole lifetime. If you or your loved one have become victims of an accident in which there is someone to blame, New York allows you to seek compensation and have your injurer pay for their wrongs against you. To file your claim, it is important having a personal injury attorney represent you. If your injuries would be covered by insurance, your attorney can help mediate to with the company to ensure you get the full amount deserving of your claim.

Duty of care
A personal injury claim can arise from any form of accident so long there is someone to blame for the occurrence. This is given by the fact that that party did not act reasonably to avoid putting you in the way of harm. This is regarded as a duty of care. If they breach this civil duty by exposing you to harm negligently or intentionally, they are liable for any harm you suffer.
Common personal injury cases we handle
- Car accident
Car accident cases make the bulk of personal injury cases in New York. It may be a reckless drunk driver who ran into you, or a driver who failed to look at their rear before reversing. There are many ways car accidents happen but so long there is a party to blame for it, it can pass as personal injury. However, this only applies to serious injuries such as death, dismemberment, fracture, temporal or permanent loss of organ function, miscarriage, etc. For minor cases, the insurance covering the vehicle would cover the injuries under no-fault law.
- Construction site accidents
Lots of accidents happen yearly in construction sites. It could be because a worker was not informed about the toxicity of a substance they would be handling or was not provided adequate protective equipment.
- Premises liability
In a shop, market place, or any other property, those in charge have the obligation to keep the place safe. If you get hurt because they have failed to do so, they are liable for your injuries. It could be a slip and fall resulting from a wet/icy floor, an under-maintained elevator or other utility, etc.
- Medical malpractice
This results when a licensed medical practitioner gives substandard treatment or medication to a patient which consequently causes harm to the patient’s overall health. It is worthy of note that a patient’s health can naturally get worse without the doctor being at fault.
- Nursing home negligence
Nursing home negligence arises when an older adult kept in a nursing home facility gets harmed as a result of not been given sufficient care by the management. If you notice your elderly loved one has sustained injuries, bruises, rashes, etc., please take the necessary steps to ensure the situation does not worsen.
- Dog bites
If a dog has a history of aggression or has bitten someone, the owner is expected to put up a warning for visitors and use all reasonable care to prevent the dog from repeating such. If it succeeds in biting another person, then the owner is liable for the medical costs.

You can sue a company for personal injury if you get harmed because their product was defective.
