If you or a loved one get hurt in an accident and you believe that someone else’s negligence or actions were to blame, then you should make a personal injury claim. This can help you recover compensation that can help make up for the expenses and trauma stemming from the accident. If an insurance company does not want to award you the kind of compensation that you deserve, our Queens personal injury attorneys can take a look at your case and help you fight to make things right.

What Can Lead to a Personal Injury Claim?

There are many types of accidents that can lead to a personal injury claim. Our law firm has experience helping people who were hurt in:

  • Car accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Construction accidents
  • Other types of premises liability cases

Any of these accidents can leave behind serious injuries, including ones that can continue to affect you for life. We help clients who suffer from:

  • Burns and disfiguring injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Loss of a limb

These injuries can result in significant medical bills and require you to change your daily routine. You should submit a personal injury claim and fight for the compensation that you deserve.

What Kinds of Damages Can I Win?

A fair and reasonable compensation offer will consider all of the pain you have experienced and the monetary costs of the accident. Your damages should reimburse you for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • A loss of earning potential
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Psychological trauma
  • Pain from disability or disfigurement

If your compensation offer does not address the economic costs of your accident as well as the psychic toll it’s taken on you, your lawyer will help you negotiate for more.

How Long Do I Have to Make a Personal Injury Claim?

Acting quickly to make a personal injury claim is in your best interest because the state does limit how much time accident victims can take to pursue legal action. New York gives you three years, which does seem like a generous amount of time. However, activating quickly is still the smart move here. The sooner you act, the easier it can be for your lawyer to gather evidence and build a convincing case.

There’s also another benefit to making your personal injury claim as soon as possible. The sooner you act, the sooner you could receive compensation!
