Personal injury victims come in many forms – victims of automobile accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, medical malpractice, and more. The resulting injuries can cause the victim to suffer from life-long pain, disfigurement, or may even result in death.

So who can victims and their loved ones turn to after they’ve been injured? In many cases, the victims can’t afford the proper care required to return to the lifestyle they were enjoying before they were hurt.

The attorneys at the Lipsig, Shapey, Manus, and Moverman P.C. are experienced in helping individuals and families decide how best to pursue legal compensation for their losses.

Do I Have A Personal Injury Case?

While personal injury cases stem from a wide variety of accidents, the concept of “negligence” plays a key part in every personal injury lawsuit. Negligence is defined as a failure to use reasonable care when doing something – basically failing to do what an ordinary person would do to keep others around them safe.

Imagine that you or a loved one are suffering on a daily basis due to injuries sustained because of the negligence of another party. Insurance has its limits, and you are concerned about lost wages, medical expenses, and the continuous pain you might feel for years to come. What do you do?

A personal lawsuit may be the be option for you. Lawsuits allow victims the chance to recover monetary sums for their losses.

Common Personal Injury Lawsuits

Automobile Accidents worker fell during work

Car, truck, bus, and motorcycle accidents are some of the leading causes of personal injuries an d deaths in New York. Often, the driver of a vehicle is the cause of an accident by being negligent or reckless while driving. Injuries suffered in an auto accident can range from minor bruising to paralysis caused by spinal injuries. To protect victims, New York has specific guidelines as to when they may pursue legal action against the driver who was at fault.

Construction Accidents

Construction accidents come in many forms such as ladder falls, scaffolding collapses, slips, trips, and falls in holes or over inanimate objects, and falling objects. Workers comp can help an injured employee with some of the costs associated with lost wages and medical expenses, but it often isn’t enough, and some claims are outright denied. To assist workers in their time of need, New York has passed several laws which promote safety in the workplace and hold construction company owners, managers, general contractors, and subcontractors liable for an employee’s injuries if safety standards are not met.

Medical Malpractice

In 2008, there were 21.5 medical malpractice claims for every 100,000 people in New York. Doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other medical professionals must all adhere to the standards of their professional license or face being held liable for their negligence. Victims who were expecting help with their health issues may suddenly find those issues are the least of their problems.\

 

What To Expect During A Lawsuit

During the course of a lawsuit you may find that lawyers from both sides contact you and also:

  • review medical records
  • interview you and any potential witnesses to the event that caused your injury
  • review a police report, and
  • evaluate any evidence you might provide.

In some cases, after both parties have reviewed all the obtainable evidence, a settlement agreement may be reached. If the plaintiff accepts the offer of the defendant, the case will not go to trial. However, if the two sides cannot come to an agreement, the case will go to trial and a verdict will be reached by the jury and/or judge.
