When you are injured in a New York accident, you face many difficulties and hardships both personally and financially. In addition to the medical care and treatment you are forced to endure, you may be incurring medical expenses and lost income. Insurance companies may be contacting you for information or asking that you provide them with a statement about how the accident occurred. Claims for benefits need to be timely submitted to the proper carrier. There may also be Notice of Claim requirements that will affect your right to receive compensation for your injuries. You are worried for the future and have questions. We have the answers.
We specialize in personal injury cases
There are millions of people in New York City, and with that many people living in such close proximity to each other, personal injuries that result in claims being filed are a common occurrence. There are hundreds of ways that an injury can take place, either due to negligence or through an intentional act by another person.
As an experienced personal injury lawyer, Stuart DiMartini has found that the most common personal injury cases involve car, motorcycle and truck accidents. But there are many other types of personal injury claims as well.
For example, personal injuries resulting from medical malpractice take place when a doctor or a health care professional does not provide competent and skilled treatment. Dog bites are another frequent source of personal injury cases because in almost every situation the owner is responsible for their dog. The numerous injuries that could take place in a public setting may result in a claim being filed, whether it's in a supermarket, daycare facility, department store or on a sidewalk.
In other situations, personal injury cases may come about as a result of an intentional act, such as in cases of assault or battery. While most people think of this as just a one-way criminal act, the fact is that a victim can file a civil suit against their attacker and seek compensation for their injuries.
Many people may not be aware that cases involving defamation of character can also qualify as a personal injury case. A person who commits slander or libel against another may be held accountable for their actions if the plaintiff can prove that the statements were false and caused direct harm.
Seeking compensation for accident victims
Whether or not you are injured in an accident, if your life is impacted in any way due to the carelessness of another person, you can be compensated for yourloss. If you are injured, you can work with an accident attorney and file a personal injury claim that will allow you to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. However, you are also entitled to file a claim even if an accident only results in damage to your property.
For example, if you're involved in a car, bus or truck accident, if the other party is at fault, you have the right to file a claim to collect for damages to your vehicle and for other things such as a rental car expense and any lost time away from work.
If you slip and fall on a sidewalk,whether it was supposed to be maintained by a local government or by a private party, you can be compensated for everything from broken glasses to personal items that may have been knocked out of your hands and smashed on the pavement.
The truth is, accidents resulting in injuries can happen just about anywhere and at any time. That includes incidences at your place of work while riding a bike in the park, out on a recreational boat ride, walking past a construction site, on a train, during a hunting trip, while visiting a friend's house and so on. The list is endless.
