If you are someone who was recently injured on your friend’s property, you may require financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and any other damages you’ve incurred in the accident. However, of course, since this person is your friend, you don’t want to sue them, though unfortunately, this does not change the fact that you are seriously injured. Fortunately, in most cases, we will not sue your friend directly; instead, we will simply sue your friend’s insurance company. Please continue reading to learn more about personal injury claims and how our experienced Bronx personal injury attorney can help you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?
As long as you can prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe conditions, failed to fix those conditions timely, and that you were injured and incurred significant financial damages as a result, there is a very good chance that you will win your premises liability claim. That being said, to prove your claim, you will have to retain the services of an experienced Bronx personal injury attorney who can gather and present all evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf, including pictures of the accident, witness statements, police reports, medical documents, surveillance footage of the accident, and more.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in the Bronx?
As you know, every state has a statute of limitations in place regarding personal injury claims, which is essentially the timeframe you will have to take legal action against another party after an accident. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York City is, in most cases, three years, giving you three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible. Our firm has helped countless individuals through the claims process over the years, and we know we have what it takes to do the same for you. Keep in mind, the sooner you bring your claim to our attention, the better, and if you wait any longer than three years to sue, you will most likely be permanently barred from doing so. We are ready to help you today.
