Hach & Rose, LLP, has released a new video FAQ about injuries to the elderly. In the video, we discuss what steps to take if an elderly loved one is hurt in an accident.
If your loved one has been injured in an accident, the New York City personal injury attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP may be able to help you seek compensation for the medical costs associated with the injury. Call our offices at (212) 779-0057 to learn more about your legal options.
As a state that utilizes a system of pure comparative fault, it is possible to recover compensation for any accident for which you share partial fault, regardless of degree. However, the amount of compensation that may be recovered will directly reflect the degree of fault you are found to be responsible for. For example, it would only be possible for you to recover 60% of the total damages awarded in the case if you were found to have been 40% at fault for the accident itself.
Following a serious accident, the physical and emotional damages may feel like more than you can bear. However, the more purely financial damages of an accident—the cost of medical and rehabilitative care, the cost of pharmaceuticals, and loss of income—will need to be addressed at some point. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help you anticipate the full extent of the present and future damages you sustained in your accident. From there, an attorney may help you build a comprehensive legal strategy intended to recover any and all those damages from the party responsible for your injury.
Occupational illnesses and injuries can occur as the result of dangerous substances in the work environment. While employers are supposed to keep employees safe by maintaining a clean working environment, sometimes toxic substances can harm employees. Some of the most common types of toxic substances in the work place include:
- Methylene chloride
- Hydrogen peroxide
These substances can cause severe illnesses and injuries to those who come in contact with them. If you have been injured on the job due to exposure to toxic chemicals, whether or not the particular chemical is on this list, you may be eligible to seek financial compensation to help pay for medical expenses. Discuss your legal options and rights with one of our personal injury attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP, today by calling (212) 779-0057.
