Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Claims
Some of the most common questions our Upper East Side personal injury lawyers get asked by our clients include:
When should I contact an Upper East Side personal injury lawyer?
You can give yourself the best chance at recovering full compensation for your injuries and losses by reaching out to an Upper East Side personal injury lawyer from Hach & Rose, LLP as soon as possible after an accident. Doing so means that we have a better chance of securing all available evidence in your case before it may be lost or before witnesses’ memories begin to fade. In addition, by contacting us as early as possible, you likely will have all legal options available to you.
What if I am partly to blame for my injuries?
Even if you bear some share of fault for causing an accident and your injuries, that does not mean that you cannot recover any compensation. New York follows the comparative negligence rule for personal injury cases, which says that an injured plaintiff is not precluded from pursuing a personal injury claim simply because they bear some responsibility for their injuries. However, compensation that you may win in a settlement or at trial may be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault for causing the accident and your injuries.
When do I need to file a lawsuit in my personal injury case?
New York’s statute of limitations typically gives you only three years from the date that you were injured to file a lawsuit against those responsible for causing your injuries. Certain rules and exceptions may give you a longer time. An Upper East Side personal injury lawyer from Hach & Rose, LLP can review the details of your case and advise you on when you will need to file suit to continue pursuing your personal injury claim. Filing suit after the statute of limitations has expired on your claim usually results in your lawsuit being permanently dismissed by the court.
What actions should I take after being injured in an accident?
If you were injured in an accident, you can preserve your options for seeking financial recovery in a personal injury claim by taking photos of the accident scene, seeking medical attention as soon as possible, following through on your doctor’s treatment instructions and recommendations, keeping copies of records of expenses and losses that you incurred, and contacting an Upper East Side personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible to start the process of investigating and preparing your claim.
