Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law

Do I need a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal Injury Attorneys have experience dealing with insurance companies, and personal injury law claims. Some minor injuries can be resolved without a personal injury attorney. There are over 800 hospitalizations for personal injuries in New York alone. If you’re in Long Island and want to get reimbursement for the medical fees you’ve faced as a result of your injury, then it’s important to work with a Long Island NY Personal Injury Lawyer because they will have the expertise you require.

What are the steps in a personal injury lawsuit?

If you’ve been involved in an accident, first you want to seek medical care. After, seeking medical care you want to give a statement to the police, and collect the information of all the parties involved. After gathering all the information, you can use this data to consult with an attorney about the severity of your case. Most personal injury cases settle out of court.

What are “damages”?

Compensatory damages in a personal injury case can be divided into two categories, economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are measurable damages like medical fees, property damage, objective costs, losses, lost wages, your inability to earn wages, and upcoming treatment bills. Non-economic damages aren’t as objectively measurable and including pain and suffering, loss of quality and enjoyment of life, despair, and anguish. Punitive damages could also be awarded when a defendant behaves egregiously.

What is the value of my personal injury case?

Every personal injury case is unique. Determining the value of your case will depend upon the severity, and nature, of your injuries. You can speak with a personal injury lawyer in the Long Island area right now to get answers to your questions about personal injury cases in New York. Lawyers won’t be able to give you an exact settlement amount because settlements depend on both insurance companies and assets of the liable party. Serious injuries, like brain damage or severed limbs, that cause intense pain and suffering, receive the highest injury settlement payouts.

How long does it take to settle a personal injury claim?

Due to the uniqueness of each case, it’s not easy to determine when your personal injury claim could be settled. If your injuries are severe, and the damages you seek are larger in value, then the defendant and his insurance company may do all they can to prolong your settlement. This is a tactic that some insurance companies use to encourage personal injury victims to settle quickly for less. Hiring a personal injury attorney can prevent insurance companies from taking advantage of you by settling your case more efficiently.

How do I pay my bills as I await my settlement?

Insurance companies won’t pay out any damages to you until liability has been established. If you’re injured on the job, you may be eligible for workman’s compensation. You also may be able to use sick or comp leave time until you’ve recovered. Your health insurance or personal injury protection could offer coverage for your medical expenses. If you don’t have insurance, then it’s possible to find medical treatment contingent upon an up and coming settlement as well. Paying medical bills in cash can reduce your total costs as well.
