How Much Is My Case Worth?

One of the questions we often receive is, “how much is my case worth?” Unfortunately, it’s not an answer we can provide immediately. We have to take a clear look at your situation as every injury case is unique and your losses are much different than others who may have experienced similar crashes. Some factors that can impact how much you may recover include:

Medical Expenses

You may recover economic damages, which accounts for your medical expenses. You can include losses you experience from your treatment, prescription medication, ongoing care, and more. If you have a surgical procedure or require inpatient care, these costs can factor into your recovery.

Property Damage

If you were in a car accident you may recover for the cost of repairing your vehicle. Your policy limits can dictate how much you recover. You should know, though, that insurance adjusters may value your property damage differently than a mechanic of your choice would.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim in New York?

In order to file a personal injury claim in the state of New York, you must be able to prove that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. When this is the case, you can seek compensation from the at-fault party for your damages, which may include things like medical bills, lost wages, future medical expenses, future lost earnings, pain and suffering, and more. You can file a personal injury claim regardless of immigration or employment status.

Before filing a personal injury claim in New York, you must prove the following elements:
  • Duty of Care

    You must first establish that the other person/party owed you a duty of care. This means that the other person/party had a legal duty to act within reason to prevent you from coming to undue harm. For example, drivers have a legal responsibility to follow the law and prevent accidents whenever possible. Drivers who act negligently, such as by texting while driving, can be held responsible when their negligence causes accidents that injure others.

  • Breach of the Duty of Care
    You must be able to prove that the person/party that owed you a duty of care breached that duty of care. Typically, this is done by proving that the other person/party was negligent or acted unlawfully in some way. To continue with the above example, a texting driver is both negligent and acting unlawfully, as texting while driving in New York is illegal.
  • Causation
    You also have to prove that the breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of your injuries. If a person acts negligently, but doesn’t hurt anyone, they will likely not be held legally liable for their negligence. However, if a negligent person/party does cause an accident or injury, they can be held accountable. For example, if the texting driver rear-ends another motorist, causing serious injuries, the injured driver can sue the texting driver for damages.
  • Damages
    Lastly, you must be able to prove that you sustained measurable damages as a result of your injuries/the other person or party’s negligence. Damages can be both economic or non-economic in nature, and may include financial losses, such as medical bills and lost income, as well as intangible losses, such as pain, suffering, and emotional distress.


It is important to understand the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York. This is the time limit within which you must file a claim or risk losing your right to compensation. In New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally three years from the date of the accident or injury.

However, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, if the injury occurred as a result of medical malpractice, you may have only two and a half years to file a claim. It is important to consult with an experienced New York personal injury attorney to ensure that you do not miss any critical deadlines.
