What You Need to Know Before You File a Claim
In order to file a personal injury claim, you (or your attorney) must be able to prove that another person or company’s negligence directly contributed to your accident and that you suffered compensable injuries. If you hire a lawyer, they will investigate and collect evidence on your behalf, as well as walk you through the necessary paperwork and other procedures. An attorney can also accurately determine how much compensation you are owed.
In the state of New York, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim. This time limit is known as the “statute of limitations.”
Damages you may be eligible to recover in a personal injury claim include both financial and non-economic losses such as:
All relevant medical expenses, both past and future
Any lost wages from missed work
Property damage, in the event your car was totaled for instance
Pain and suffering you endured because of the accident
Punitive damages, in the rare event your accident was caused by malice or gross negligence
The time it takes for a personal injury claim to successfully resolve can vary immensely. If your case is fairly straightforward and you are already on your way to recovery, your claim may only take a few weeks or months to be finalized. In the event you have suffered devastating injuries and are still in recovery, the defendant is uncooperative, or your case is otherwise complicated, it can take up to one or two years to resolve. Rest assured, however, that we will work to resolve your case as effectively and efficiently as possible. We will never keep you in the dark about the happening of the case and will always contact you regarding important decisions.
