NY Personal Injury Laws You Should Know

Share

When you’ve suffered because someone else was careless, it’s not always easy to get compensation for your losses. You might be inexperienced in personal injury law, which could mean a dismissed claim and no compensation.

There are certain New York personal injury laws you should know before you begin. Fortunately, your attorney can guide you through those laws. If you have questions about your claim and how to pursue compensation, talk to an attorney.

No-Fault Insurance Laws

When you’re hurt in a car accident, your first option for a financial recovery should be your insurance policy. You pay into it for emergencies like this, right? In New York, you should be able to rely on your no-fault insurance policy. 

This insurance law states that, in most cases, your insurance should cover your costs, no matter who’s at fault. Even if you caused the crash, your no-fault insurance should cover you. That gives most people the opportunity to focus on their health. However, if you believe you’re not getting the coverage you should receive, reach out to a New York attorney for guidance.  

Comparative Negligence 

Not all personal injury claims can be solved with no-fault insurance, though. If you need to take your claim to court, you may need to discuss shared fault, or comparative negligence, with your personal injury lawyer. 

In these cases, your compensation will be reduced by the amount of fault you’re found responsible for. If you don’t fight back and avoid taking the blame, your claim could be dismissed. That leaves you without compensation. 

Fortunately, your Long Island personal injury lawyer can help. Your attorney can help you defend yourself and win the compensation you’re qualified for. 

Time Limits for Your Injury Claim

When you’re hurt, though, it’s important to seek out your compensation as quickly as possible. The clock will start ticking on your claim right after the injury, which means you don’t have a lot of time. 

In New York, your time limit will depend on the details of your claim, which your lawyer can review. If you don’t act in that time, your claim will be dismissed, and you’ll be barred from seeking recovery. 

Connect with a NY Personal Injury Lawyer

If you’ve suffered because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation that covers your suffering and injuries. However, New York’s personal injury laws aren’t always on your side. In some cases, you may find yourself unable to get the compensation you need for your losses. 

If you’re concerned about the New York personal injury laws you should know, you may need to speak to a lawyer from Jaghab, Jaghab & Jaghab, PC. They can give you the guidance you need for your claim, so you can focus on your physical recovery, not just the complex nature of a civil lawsuit.
