Personal Injury Attorney New York

New York City is a busy place, and although it is very safe, there are still many different ways that someone can be injured while they are in public.

Many of the risks that people face while they move about the city are because of the negligence or recklessness of others, which can be an extremely upsetting and frustrating experience when they suffer serious injuries because of someone else’s decision or actions. In these cases, the victim may be eligible to seek additional damage from the party responsible for their injuries in the form of a personal injury settlement or lawsuit.Finding the right attorney for your case can be almost as overwhelming as dealing with the injuries themselves since it can be very difficult to determine whether or not the attorney you are speaking with is a good fit for your needs.

That is why 1.800.HURT.511 is here to offer you a free case evaluation, and to connect you with an experienced and trustworthy personal injury lawyer in our network. Read more below for some general information regarding personal injuries, and contact us now to get started on the path towards compensation and justice.

What Is Personal Injury Law?

After a car accident, most people are familiar with the process of filing a claim for property damage with the insurance company, which seeks compensation for the damages to the vehicle and any other personal belongings that were damaged in the crash. However, the term “personal injury” is intended to address injuries to the body and mind, as opposed to the objects and property.

Personal injury law is a focus area that many attornies practice, which seeks to calculate the damages that a victim is owed for their injuries and suffering, whether through direct negotiations with an insurance company, a settlement with the responsible party, or a full lawsuit through the New York courts. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or malice, you may qualify for these damages.

Examples of Personal Injury Accidents

The following is just a sample of injuries that are common in personal injury cases. As you can imagine, there are many different ways that you can be injured because of someone else’s actions (or inactions), meaning that if you are uncertain of your situation then the best option is to contact us now for a free case evaluation. During your evaluation, you will be able to learn more about your rights and be connected with an attorney who is ready to fight for you.

Car and Truck Accidents

There are a variety of different reasons that a car accident can happen, but regardless of the cause, it is important that you take the appropriate steps to ensure that your legal rights are upheld every step of the way. This means that calling 911 after an accident is a top priority, to ensure that you and the other driver are interviewed, that the other driver is confirmed to not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol or in violation of any other traffic laws and to get emergency medical attention if necessary.

After a car or truck accident, you will need to deal with an insurance company to initiate your claim. These companies are notoriously aggressive with their tactics in order to limit the amount of money that they pay to victims, but when you are represented by an attorney you can be confident that they will be fighting for what you rightfully deserve.

Pedestrian Accidents

Despite a lowered citywide speed limit of 25 mph, pedestrians are still at risk of serious injury or death from a vehicular collision. Unfortunately, there were 588 pedestrian fatalities and 44,360 pedestrian injuries between 2012 and 2017 in New York City, and an 11% increase in collisions between 2014 and 2018.

The city has recently invested in changes to help improve pedestrian safety, including revamping street corners to slow down cars, updating crosswalk signals to give pedestrians a head start, and increasing traffic violation enforcement across the city. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that drivers are more distracted than ever, leading to a nationwide trend in traffic death increases due to factors like texting while driving. These types of accidents can seriously injure pedestrians. The costs that are associated with head trauma, spinal cord injuries and broken bones can be significant.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents in New York are a leading cause of death among all age groups, and they are especially common in the five boroughs of New York City. Slip and fall can lead to chronically debilitating injuries if left untreated injury can be extremely costly. Following a slip and fall accident, a claim must be filed with the property owner’s insurance provider. Insurance companies, however, are primarily concerned with their best interests of maximizing profits and tend to settle such claims for far less than the injured party deserves.

Don’t accept settlements without seeking a legal consult from a qualified slip and fall attorney. Taking a settlement from an insurance company would dramatically reduce claim compensation since the insurance companies tend to retain as much money as they can. If you or a loved one are injured in a slip and fall accident, contact us at 1-800-HURT-511 to start working with an attorney as soon as possible.

Workers’ Compensation

A statute of limitations is the legal term for a time limit an individual has to file a claim. In New York City, the time limit for filing a claim is 2 years. However, depending on the seriousness of your injuries, you may receive additional time to file or modify your claim. In the case of severe injuries, such a coma, the time limit to file a workers’ compensation claim may be extended.
Regardless, if you do have serious injuries it is best to act quickly Even with considerable time to file a claim, you should report your injuries to your company immediately. If you need any assistance, consult with us right away.

In all five boroughs, employers are required to buy workers’ compensation insurance. However, it is important to remember that the insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible. For this reason, it is of the utmost importance to contact a lawyer right away to speak in-depth about your case, and to proceed correctly so that you may receive the maximum compensation for your pain, suffering, and stress.

Bicycle Accidents

New York City has taken considerable steps in recent years to improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists under the Vision Zero action plan. This plan is based on the theory that many accidents are caused by poor road design, as opposed to improper driving, and the city has been focused on updating roadways to incorporate safer features such as protected bike lanes, better visibility for vehicles, a reduced speed limit, and more.

While the steps that have already been taken through Vision Zero and a variety of other measures have certainly improved cyclist safety, there is still much work to be done. Until all traffic injuries and deaths are eliminated and the goal of Vision Zero is achieved, the reality is that there will be cycling accidents throughout the city, and those injured cyclists will need the help of a personal injury attorney in NYC.

Testimonials

  • I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

  • Serious team effort from the entire staff to get my work injury case resolved quickly. They built a strong case and kept me in the loop for the duration. This team also delivered on two previous occasions and did it in a very cost-effective way. A faithful customer for life, thank you!

  • Great experience! The representative I spoke to was calm and collected and talked me through the first half hour after our car accident. My wife and I were pretty shook up, but he assured me that I wasn’t our fault and explained how to handle the situation. They even sent us reminders to make sure we went to all the appointments and stayed on top of our claim!

  • I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
