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.
Comprehensive Representation for the Injured
When you have been seriously injured, you may also have related legal issues that need to be resolved. For example, if you are disabled and no longer able to work, you may have a Social Security Disability benefits claim. Likewise, if you were injured on the job, you may have a workers’ compensation claim.
Our New York personal injury lawyer assists clients with these and other related issues, such as structured settlements and lottery prizes. We take pride in offering comprehensive legal services for injured individuals and the families of those wrongfully killed throughout the state.
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.
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.
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.
