Personal Injury Attorney in Westchester
Recovering Medical Costs and Lost Wages
With over 8 decades of combined legal service, the attorneys at Jaghab, Jaghab, and Jaghab, P.C have seen all manner and type of personal injury cases. We have represented thousands of clients during this time, recovering many millions of dollars to assist individuals who have been victimized by other’s negligence. Although this is our profession, we have never lost sight of the fact that for each person who comes to us, the physical trauma, mounting bills and expenses can be frightening and overwhelming.
When an accident resulting in a severe injury occurs, the initial thought is always for the welfare of the person who has been harmed. Unfortunately, shortly after the early shock comes the reality of medical costs that can consume a person’s savings, wages that are lost and the fact of not being able to go to work. When this is compounded by confusing and frustrating insurance or worker’s compensation requirements and other legal troubles, it can be too much. This is where we urge you to turn to an accomplished Westchester personal injury lawyer from our firm for aid.
In a better world, valid claims for worker’s compensation would be seen for what they are and be paid fully and on time. Likewise, an individual whose negligence caused a car, truck, motorcycle or boating accident would assume responsibility and fairly compensate those that are injured. If a construction accident, such as a roof fall or those caused by a crane, falling objects or unsafe scaffolding were easily resolved, there would be no need to seek legal representation. If health care providers did not make medical errors such as misdiagnosis, medication errors or failures to diagnose we would not have a category of legal actions under the heading of “medical negligence” or malpractice.
Protecting Your Right to Compensation
Regrettably, carelessness and willful disregard do take place and personal injury litigation is commonly required in order to protect an individual’s rights to compensation. Any case starts with a complete investigation into the facts. This may be physical evidence such as skid marks in a multi-vehicle accident to photographs of the unsafe conditions that lead to a slip and fall accident. Proof of the cause of your injury may be bolstered by a thorough examination of witness statements, police reports and other pertinent information. At times, swift review and analysis of your accident can result in a case that is sufficiently strong to bring about a favorable settlement for compensation without a lawsuit. When this does not occur, we use our considerable litigation experience to present your case in a court of law.
Recent settlements and verdicts we have secured for our clients include $600,000 in a construction accident case, $50,591,035 for a person injured in a scaffolding fall, $10,000,000 on behalf of a worker who was injured due to a dangerous demolition practice and $500,000 in an automobile accident case. The laws of our state provide for an individual hurt by the negligent actions of another to pursue their rights to compensation. In many cases a person can be compensated for wages they have lost, property damage, hospital and medical costs and for the inability to earn a living. Some situations demand recompense for the pain and suffering that a person can undergo from a personal injury. For certain individuals, they may be able to recover damages for the loss of family relationships such as love, care and companionship. When you consult one of our attorneys, he can review your case and circumstances to determine what compensation may be appropriate to your case.
