The bridges, highways and railroads of the Bronx are more heavily traveled than in any other part of the U.S. and accidents happen daily. If another was responsible for injury to you or someone you are close to, we want to know what happened and how we can help.
We use our experience to thoroughly evaluate the accident or incident which led to your injury. At times, intensive investigation is required to unearth what really occurred and who was to blame. Photographs of the accident scene, police reports, statements by witnesses and a multitude of sources can be utilized to unravel and document what occurred. Medical information will need to be compiled to demonstrate that your injury resulted from the accident. We also strive to show the full repercussions of your injury as this greatly affects the compensation you are owed. Severe injuries to the spinal cord, brain, eyes, limbs or major organs can result in the need for further medical treatment and attention. In some cases, in-home care will become a necessity. With medical malpractice, the catastrophic result can be birth injuries to newborns.
At times, the need for proper care can be undermined by overzealous insurance adjusters, employers who are unwilling to admit fault in an accident or the invalid denial of a worker’s compensation claim. To prevent such incidents from happening to you or to see that they are fully resolved if they do arise, it is important to have an attorney who is a proven negotiator and litigator.
What compensation can you expect?
While the facts of each case vary, there are general types of compensation that are commonly awarded. Wages that you have already lost and/or the inability to earn an income are usual areas that are compensated. Property damage, ambulance fees, hospital costs and medical bills are also routinely paid for through legal action. If long-term care or the use of a nursing home is required, these can be part of claims or litigation that we initiate on your behalf.
Personal injury cases are, however, about more than just your bills. The entire quality of your life and the years ahead may have been affected by your injury and this deserves compensation as well. When merited, we take pride in fighting hard for damages as a result of your pain and suffering. For some, the loss of companionship, care, love and other family relationships can bring about a recovery of damages for parents, spouses and children.
Your case will most likely rest on being able to prove who was responsible for your injury and the subsequence harm. You may know, without a doubt, who caused your pain and suffering. Persuading an insurance company or jury may not be as clear cut, and personal injury cases are, many times, are denied, contested or a low settlement offered. The opposition will have legal representation that is determined to see that your claim is not paid at all or that any settlement amount is significantly reduced. You will need a firm that is more than up to the task of convincing others of the strength of your case while working to obtain maximum compensation.
