If you have ever been injured in an accident in New York, it is imperative that you gather information about what happens next as quickly as possible.

Injuries you sustain in a car/bus/trucking accident can be shocking and overwhelming. A few days after your accident, you may experience pain and decide to pursue a claim against the negligent party. Dealing with the aftermath may be exhausting and stressful. Accident victims often deal with hospitalization, medical treatments, missed time from work, and lost income, often while trying to manage pain and disability from their injuries.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury law involves injury which is caused accidentally, not intentionally, by another’s failure to use reasonable care. This type of law covers situations in which a person’s body, mind, or emotions are hurt, usually due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. It includes pain and suffering, wrongful death and situations where an injury results in a fatality.

How do liability and negligence relate to an insurance claim?

A person may be liable for the injury due to his/her own negligent or reckless actions in causing the accident. The resulting injury must have been caused by the at-fault party, and must have been a foreseeable result of the at-fault party’s negligent action. So even if someone who commits a negligent action did not intend for you to get injured, that negligent party may still be the defendant in a personal injury claim.

Most common types of personal injury claims:

Personal injury lawsuits often arise from automobile, bicycle, pedestrian, boating, aircraft, bus, commercial trucking, and other kinds of motor vehicle accidents. Personal injury claims can also arise from medical malpractice, defective products, and slip-and-fall claims.

Why do people hire injury attorneys?

A successful personal injury claim may recover monetary funds for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, emotional pain and suffering, burial costs, and other financial costs that result from the injury. Typically, a personal injury lawyer is hired to oversee the claim, to let an injured person focus on healing without the stress of dealing with the legal side of the accident. Injury lawyers typically offer a no-cost consultation, so there is no downside to speaking with a lawyer about your potential claim. At A. Cohen Law Firm, P.C., we never charge you for any costs associated with your claim. That means you will never pay any money out of pocket. To the extent we are able to settle or obtain a judgment on your behalf, our compensation is 33% of the total recovery after expenses are deducted.
