Understanding Personal Injury Claims

In New York, you are entitled to compensation if you suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s action or negligence. Whether you suffer a car accident with someone else at fault or you slip and fall in a restaurant bathroom because a leaky sink left a puddle on the floor, when you are in a situation where your safety depends on others acting responsibly and their negligence causes you an injury, you have a personal injury claim. Some examples of accidents and injuries that may fall under personal injury laws include:

You are entitled to compensation for financial damages and pain and suffering when someone else’s actions or negligence causes an accident and you suffer injuries, or if you lose a loved one due to the recklessness or carelessness of a party or parties.

Personal Injury Compensation and Damages

Personal injury claims are meant to compensate you for damages caused by someone else’s carelessness. These include compensation for monetary losses and emotional damages. Most claims settle out of court, but others require litigation in a courtroom in order for an award for damages. Common economic damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses for surgeries, therapies, and medications related to the injury
  • Lost wages and future lost income
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Damages to property such as to a vehicle in the case of a car accident

There is also a range of emotional damages caused by an injury. The pain and suffering you endure as the result of a devasting injury takes a serious toll on your quality of life and deserves compensation. Common non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress or anguish
  • Loss of activities
  • Loss of consortium (diminished enjoyment of relationships including a physical relationship with a spouse or partner)

Non-economic damages claims in the case of a serious injury deserve compensation.
