Can I Sue for a Serious Injury in New York City?

Though New York City has a lot to offer, the unfortunate reality is that serious accidents and injuries happen more often than we may think. Unfortunately, these accidents very often lead to serious injuries, which, if you are someone who has been injured, you may realize you now need compensation for. Fortunately, our firm is here to help you receive the money you deserve. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced New York City personal injury lawyer to learn more about how we can help you pursue compensation for your serious injury:

What accidents commonly lead to serious injury in NYC?

Some of the most common types of accidents our firm sees and handles can include slip and fall, or premises liability accidents. These can include injuries sustained in apartments, supermarkets, restaurants, on sidewalks, stairs, or parking lots, and more. Additionally, our firm very often helps people sue after being injured in auto accidents. Some of the most common auto accidents include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus and train accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, and now, more frequently, Uber and Lyft accidents.

What are the most frequently sustained serious injuries in accidents?

Though oftentimes, a simple slip and fall accident does not constitute filing a lawsuit, especially if you were not severely injured as a result, there are times when people are so critically harmed that they require financial compensation for their wrongly-sustained injuries. Some of the most frequently-sustained severe injuries can include burn injuries, scarring, spinal cord injuries, and brain injuries, to name a few.

How do I file a personal injury claim?

If you believe you have been wrongly injured in an accident, there are several things you must do to win a personal injury claim. First, you will have to retain an attorney who can determine the party liable for your injuries, which is not always easy, especially in premises or product liability lawsuits. Once you hire an attorney, you and your attorney will have to gather and present evidence as effectively as possible, so that you can prove you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful evidence can include security camera footage of your accident (which our firm can subpoena), pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, medical documents, police reports, witness testimony, and more.

We are ready to help you through every step of the legal process ahead–all you have to do is ask.
