Queens Personal Injury Cases We Specialize in
Accident victims often deserve compensation from the party responsible for the incident. That is why at The Platta Law Firm our experienced personal injury attorneys are highly skilled helping those who have suffered the following types of accidents:
- Defective Product
- Negligent Security
The majority of personal injury claims are based on the carelessness of another party. Moreover, in some instances, strict liability might apply. That means those responsible can be held responsible even if they were not careless. Certainly, at The Platta Law Firm we know Queens, and the law that applies there. Therefore, we’ll use that knowledge to ensure you’ve got a solid case. Consequently, we can get you the maximum award you deserve.
Serious Personal Injuries Suffered By Accident Victims
Your Queens accident can cause painful and debilitating injuries. And, these life-altering injuries can cause you to miss work and cost a lot of money to treat. So, getting a quick and fair settlement award can help you get back on your feet and return to a normal life. Our firm routinely helps clients who have experienced such traumatic injuries as:
- Broken bones
- Organ damage
- And Wrongful Death
Time Limits for Filing a Queens Personal Injury Lawsuit
The law in New York state allows for a certain amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, while some exceptions apply, the majority of accident victims in Queens, NY, have three years to file their personal injury lawsuit before losing their right to recover compensation. The clock starts ticking on the day your accident occurs. So, once the three years are up, you lose your entitlement to sue. In addition, insurance companies typically refuse to deal fairly when they know you no longer have the ability to sue for damages. Furthermore, you should also keep in mind that your lawyer needs a certain amount of time to prepare for your case. Certainly, beginning early allows you the best chance of receiving the best possible settlement amount.
Shared Blame in Your Queens Personal Injury Case
In an effort to lower the settlement amount, it’s common for the defendant in a personal injury case to try and lay fault on the victim. However, even if you are partially responsible to blame, New York comparative negligence law still allows you to get compensation. For example, even if you’re 50% to blame for the accident, you can receive 50% of your compensation award from the other party involved. Shared fault is critical to understand because it can result in a reduced settlement amount. However, it does not eliminate your right to get some compensation from other parties responsible for the injury-causing accident. Our experienced lawyers know how to get the most for your Queens personal injury accident, even if you were partially to blame.
The Value of Your Queens Personal Injury Lawsuit
Damages in New York personal injury lawsuits are split into the following basic categories: punitive damages, economic damages, and non-economic damages. That’s why determining the value of your lawsuit is based on such things as:
- How much treating the injuries will cost
- The potential need for ongoing medical care
- The gravity of your injury – eventual full recovery or permanent injury
Receiving the maximum award settlement takes time and patience. Therefore, while we want to get the settlement check in your hand as soon as possible, we also want to fully grasp the complete and long-lasting impact of your Queens accident and injury, before seeking funds from the insurance company. Call 24/7 or Chat Online for a FREE Consultation.
Economic Damages for Victims of a Queens Accident
Of the different types of damages that can be fought for, economic damages are the simplest to calculate because they cover for your out-of-pocket expenses. However, challenges can occur if your injury has not entirely healed. This is why your economic damages should take future costs into account. Types of economic compensation that you may be eligible to receive include repayment for medical fees like:
- Medical Devices
- Physical Therapy
- Emergency Room Costs
- Treatment requirements (current and future)
- Childcare Costs
- Occupational Therapy
- Property Damage Costs
- In-home Health Care Costs
- Lost Wages and Earning Ability
Rest assured, our Queens personal injury attorneys work with both economic advisors and medical experts to cover all the bases. That is to say, it’s our top priority to ensure your settlement award covers your needs now and, in the weeks, months and years ahead.
Estimating Your Personal Injury Case’s Non-Economic Damage Awards
Non-economic damages should also be considered in every personal injury case. This is because these types of damages compensate for the personal effects of the injury. Certainly, a highly skilled and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer will be able to determine a reasonable amount of non-economic damages, which can include compensation to address such things as:
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Reduced Quality of Life
- Damages for Wrongful Death
As with economic damages, there are several aspects that go into determining your non-economic damages. For instance, among the two most critical factors are the severity and permanence of the injury from the accident. This is why our Queens personal injury attorneys will take the time to carefully listen when you discuss how your specific injuries have altered your life.
Identifying Punitive Damages of Your Queens Personal Injury Case
Punitive damages are granted if the jury or judge determines the actions of the defendant particularly appalling. However, the majority of New York personal injury cases do not include punitive damages. This category of damages are reserved for the primary purpose of punishing the defendant, rather than awarding the injured victim.
