NYC Personal Injury Lawyer
Accidents that lead to injuries come in all types, and unfortunately, the medical bills and other damages that follow can leave you facing a mountain of debt and substantially decreased quality of life. Work with an NYC personal injury lawyer and seek a settlement from the at-fault party that will allow you to recover and put a difficult time behind you.
Avoid suffering financial damages and uncompensated losses in addition to the physical and emotional injuries caused by your accident. Working with an NYC personal injury lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP enables you to seek financial compensation from the at-fault parties by filing a civil lawsuit.
If another person, business, or government entity was responsible for your accident, you can sue them for damages. First, you need to hire an attorney that can prove their negligence and the reasons why you deserve compensation.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
You can receive the help of an NYC personal injury lawyer from our office if you were injured due to the negligence of someone else. Some common types of injury cases include all of the following:
- Car, motorcycle, and commercial truck accidents
- Taxi accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip-and-fall cases
- Premises liability cases
- Defective products
- Dog bites
- And more
Most people think of car accidents in regards to personal injury cases. However, anytime that you suffer physical harm due to the negligent action or inaction of someone else, you could have grounds for a case.
We see a wide variety of injuries, some minor and others leading to lifelong disabilities. If you have received medical care for an injury caused by someone else, you have the basis for seeking financial compensation. Some of the more common injuries we see are listed below:
- Whiplash and neck injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Limb amputation
- And more
Regardless of the severity of your injuries, an NYC personal injury lawyer from our firm can file a civil lawsuit on your behalf. Naturally, the amount of compensation you are entitled to will be directly influenced by the type and severity of your injuries.
File Your Personal Injury Claim Quickly
New York has a statute of limitations dictating how long you have in which to file a personal injury lawsuit after being injured. The exact time frame can be influenced by how you were injured. However, it is always within your best interests to hire an NYC personal injury lawyer to file a lawsuit on your behalf as quickly as possible.
You do not need to be fully recovered before filing. Doing so simply preserves your right to a day in court. If you wait and file too late, your case could be thrown out without ever seeing trial.
Seeking Financial Damages
Working with an NYC personal injury lawyer from our office will give you the best opportunity for receiving full financial compensation.
To be eligible for a settlement, we first need to prove that someone else was more responsible for your accident and injury than you were. This is not as easy as it sounds and generally requires the investigative resources of a law firm. Keep in mind that the other party may try to prove that the accident was your fault, so you can’t take anything for granted.
After gathering evidence to demonstrate negligence, we can go to work valuing your injury claim. Our objective will be to get you as much money as possible for your injuries. To do so, we will calculate expenses above and beyond just your medical bills. These may include any of the following:
- Wages you have lost by taking time off work or being unable to work at all
- Cost of retrofitting your home or vehicle to accommodate your physical restrictions
- Expense of hiring a caregiver
- Transportation costs
- Physical therapy, massage, rehabilitation, and other treatments
- Medical devices and equipment
- Medication, both over-the-counter and prescription
- Pain and suffering
- Any other expenses or losses you have suffered due to your injury
Going to Court
Hiring an NYC personal injury lawyer does not necessarily mean that you will end up in court. However, you need an attorney that is prepared for this eventuality. We have extensive trial experience and can represent you whether your case settles or needs to go to court.
Once your lawsuit has been filed, we can still negotiate with the other party. We may submit a demand letter and request for compensation. This creates an opportunity for the other side to agree to our terms and settle the case out of court.
If they refuse to do so or are unwilling to negotiate, going to court will be necessary in order to receive a court-rendered verdict for a fair settlement. However, the majority of our cases reach a successful settlement agreement without ever seeing the inside of a courtroom.
