Compensation and Fault
You could pursue several types of compensation for your injuries.
When you were injured, you likely needed medical attention. And depending on the extent of your injuries, you may need long-term medical care. The costs of your medical needs can be astronomical. You may be able to recover economic damages for these financial costs that you’ve incurred because of your injuries. Economic damages cover:
- Medical costs
- Future medical treatment costs
- Lost wages or income
- Costs of the repair or replacement of damaged property
You know the impact that your injuries have had on you mentally and emotionally. You deal with pain and emotional stress each day while you’re trying to recover from your injuries. If you’ve suffered severe physical injuries, they could be impacting your life in unimaginable ways. Life as you knew it may be no longer. You may be having to adjust to permanent injuries. Non-economic damages could cover these more personal costs to you, including:
- Loss of quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Mental anguish
- Permanent disfigurement, scarring, or disability
Even in a wrongful death lawsuit, you could be compensated for the emotional and actual costs of the death of your loved one. The representative of your loved one’s estate could file an action to recover damages for:
- Funeral expenses for your loved one
- Costs of medical treatment for your loved one
- Loss of relationship
- Loss of the income and benefits that your loved one would be earning
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
If you’re entitled to receive compensation for your injuries, your maximum compensation could be reduced if you were partly to blame for the cause of your injuries. Under New York’s pure contributory negligence law, your compensation would be reduced in proportion to your fault for the cause of your injuries. You can still recover damages for a portion of your losses, no matter how much of the blame you share.
Suppose you were entitled to $100,000 in damages. If you were 70 percent to blame for your injuries, that $100,000 settlement or award would be reduced by $70,000. So you would receive $30,000 in compensation. Likewise, if you were only 20 percent to blame for your injuries. Your compensation would be reduced from the total compensable amount of $100,000 to $80,000.
The Process of Pursuing Compensation for Your Injuries
The first step in pursuing compensation for your injuries is hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer. With Hach & Rose, LLP, you’re not only getting experience. You’re getting well-regarded, compassionate attorneys who are aggressive in their advocacy for you.
Next, depending on whether you were injured in an accident or otherwise suffered injuries due to an individual’s or company’s negligent actions, you may need to file a personal injury claim when you begin pursuing compensation for your injuries. A personal injury claim is filed with your own insurance company if you were injured in an auto accident. You may need to file a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company if you were injured in another type of accident, such as a slip and fall accident or an aviation accident.
If there is no avenue for you to file a personal injury claim, you’ll have to file a personal injury lawsuit at the onset of your pursuit for compensation. You may also need to file a lawsuit if you filed a claim with an insurance company first but they refuse to offer you the maximum compensation you could be entitled to.
