Why Do I Need an Attorney for My Injury Claim?
Hiring a lawyer should be your first step after receiving an accidental injury anywhere in Manhattan. There are several reasons for this.
Your lawyer will handle the workload of building your claim and allow you the time you need to rest and recover from your injuries. Building a claim takes time and energy, two things you may not have after suffering a severe injury. Your attorney will conduct a thorough investigation into your accident, determine who was at fault, and gather evidence to support your claim. This may include accident reports, medical records, eyewitness statements, or photo or video evidence.
Compensation for any injury claim is broken down by the actual damages caused by the accident. The greater the damages, the more compensation you should demand from the responsible party. Knowing how to estimate these damages accurately is crucial in PI claims. Without the help of an attorney, you may not get all the compensation you’re owed.
Your attorney will also be your first line of defense against the insurance company. Insurance adjusters work hard to protect their company’s bottom line by denying claims at every opportunity. Your attorney will work hard to build an ironclad claim for you, then become your chief negotiator after it’s submitted. We will make sure the insurance company doesn’t try to take advantage of your inexperience, and we will work to obtain the maximum possible payout for you.
Compensation for PI Claims
We help our clients obtain compensation for injuries caused by another party’s negligence or malice through personal injury claims and personal injury lawsuits. The amount of compensation you may obtain is impossible to determine without a full review of your case. In general, the rule of thumb is the more severe your injuries, the more compensation you should demand from the responsible party.
The amount is determined by the losses or damages you suffered due to the accident. Your attorney will help you identify and tally all these losses. You can be compensated for tangible as well as intangible losses.
Tangible losses with a definable dollar value are called special damages. Some examples include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Hospital expenses
- Nurse’s services
- Property damage or replacement
Intangible losses are also considered in PI claims. These are called general damages and vary depending on the circumstances of the accident and injury. There are several categories of general damages, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Reputational damage
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of enjoyment
New York law also allows some claimants to be awarded punitive damages under certain circumstances. Punitive damages are a financial penalty for behaving maliciously or spitefully and are not intended to compensate you for any loss. Punitive damages are only allowed when the claimant can show spite, malice, or fraud on the part of the responsible party. They carry a higher burden of proof than other damages and can only be awarded in a trial. Talk to your attorney to see if punitive damages are appropriate in your case.
