Albany Personal Injury Lawyers
Suffering an injury is always painful, distressing, and in some cases life-changing or catastrophic. But when your injury results from someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or disregard, it’s even more frustrating and painful. Personal injuries cause financial loss, emotional distress, and in some cases, deep anguish. That’s why our skilled legal team at Gattuso & Ciotoli, PLLC, has great compassion for personal injury victims in Albany and throughout New York State. We fight tirelessly for the financial compensation and damages you’re entitled to from the responsible party or parties whose actions, inaction, or negligence led to your injury.
When Do You Have a Valid Claim for Personal Injury In New York?
Under New York’s Doctrine of Negligence, you have a right to seek compensation if you’ve been injured due to someone else’s fault. There are many examples of personal injuries that result in successful claims including:
- Car accidents with the other driver clearly at fault
- Construction accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Premises liability claims
- Wrongful death
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
Whether you are driving on the road or walking the aisles of a supermarket, you’re under the assumption that people around you act responsibly to ensure your safety. Whether that be by driving carefully and abiding by traffic laws, and protecting you from hazards and danger by following safety practices and guidelines on their premises. Unfortunately, thousands of injuries result from the negligence or recklessness of another’s actions every year. If your injury wouldn’t have occurred if someone else had acted responsibly, then you have a valid claim and deserve compensation and damages for your medical expenses and suffering.
What to Expect From a Personal Injury Claim
A serious injury requires substantial medical treatment and almost always results in great expenses as well as lost income. Some common economic compensations you deserve if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own include:
- Compensation for your current and future medical expenses
- Lost income and lost future wages in the event of future surgeries or therapies
- Diminished capacity for earning
- Property damages to a vehicle
With a serious injury resulting from someone else’s fault you may also gain compensation in the form of emotional damages including the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress from the accident and lost earnings
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of activities, including hobbies, sports, and other leisure activities
- Loss of consortium (no longer able to enjoy a physical relationship with a loved one)
These types of losses are very real and deserving of compensation just as your medical expenses and other economic damages.
