New York Personal Injury Lawyer
Compensation for Personal Injury Victims
A question that we frequently get asked is what compensation or damages will a particular individual receive in a personal injury case. Each case is different and there is no specific amount that a knowledgeable New York personal injury attorney can provide to you. There are, however, general guidelines as to what you can be compensated for and the types of damages that can be awarded.
The attorneys at Jaghab, Jaghab, and Jaghab, P.C. have 85 years of combined experience to offer you or a loved one if negligent actions by another in a car, truck, motorcycle, train or boating accident have left you injured. A single example of a recent verdict in one of our cases is for a construction accident in which a 29 year old worker was paralyzed in a fall from scaffolding. At the conclusion of the case he was awarded $50,591,035 by verdict.
Our firm has secured millions of dollars in compensation and damages for victims who have suffered eye injuries, product liability incidents, single vehicle and multi-vehicle accidents, premises liability issues (slip and fall injuries), roof falls and many more. Our years of successful practice and proven record of results gives you the assurance that when we take on your case, we strive to obtain the full compensation that you are owed.
For some, a worker’s compensation claim can provide the long-term benefits that are needed. The system is set up, in theory, to aid a worker who is injured on the job. In many cases it does not work this way, especially in the most populated city in the U.S. where a multitude of claims are routinely filed. Insurance companies utilize claims adjusters and teams of attorneys who act on worker’s compensation claims daily. Valid claims can be denied and even when this is not the case the value of your claim can be significantly reduced, leaving you without the funds you need to pay for medical expenses and loss of earnings. Falling objects, ladder accidents, crane malfunctions and a host of other hazards can cause severe and lasting damage to the brain, spinal cord, limbs and other extreme injuries. We work to ensure your claim is correctly filed and moved through the system towards obtaining maximum benefits. You do not have to go it alone and without experienced protection of your rights.
Personal Injury Settlements and Verdicts
For injuries arising from medical malpractice, auto product liability, assaults and attacks, security negligence, birth injuries, nursing home abuse and many others, litigation is commonly required. In these situations we work to undercover who was responsible for your injuries and what they did to bring you harm. At times, our actions will result in an offer of settlement and negotiations to bring about fair compensation in your case. Other circumstances will demand that we go to trial to pursue a favorable verdict in your case. We are accomplished litigators who know how to prepare cases for trial and present them in a persuasive manner before the court.
How your case is addressed depends on the specific circumstances of the incident, the severity of your injuries and how these have affected your life. Hospital bills and immediate medical treatment are commonly compensated for. Future care, rehabilitation and treatment may also be part of what will be awarded in your case. Many of those who are injured are the major income earners in their family. If you have lost wages and are not able to earn a living, both now and in the future, we fight to gain compensation for future economic losses as part of any settlement or verdict in your case.
In certain situations, the children or spouse of a person who was wrongfully injured by the negligence of another can be compensated for their loss of love, care and companionship. The parents of a carelessly injured child can, at times, be provided for through our legal actions. If you have received a disability or suffered disfigurement, your pain and suffering can sometimes result in the awarding of damages. An attorney from our firm is ready to meet with you to discuss your case and what can be done to help.
Our firm is dedicated to assisting personal injury victims who have been harmed in any manner, be it sexual abuse, physical assault, medical errors or a head-on accident. If we lived in a world where individuals took responsibility for their actions and injured parties were compensated in a just manner, we would practice other types of law. Until that time, our firm is determined to help those that suffer due to the negligent actions of others.
