You Must Prove that You Sustained Serious Injuries
Under New York’s “no-fault” insurance law, you are not permitted to claim damages for your personal injuries unless your injuries are considered “serious” in nature. That means that if you sustained a minor injury that heals quickly, you may not be able to recover financial compensation. You are however permitted to claim benefits for a limited time that include payment for medical treatment, some of your lost earnings and other expenses for such things as transportation. Even if you are not sure if you have sustained a “serious” injury it is very important that you consult the experienced and dedicated lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte. This is because even a minor seeming injury at first may worsen over time or require more intensive medical intervention such as surgical repair.
Some types of injuries that are considered serious under New York No Fault Law include fractured bones, loss of a limb, disfiguring scarring, death, an injury which constitutes a significant limitation of use of a body part or organ, injuries which prevent you from performing substantially all of your usual and customary activities for 90 out of the 180 days following the accident as well as other injuries. Whether an injury is considered “serious” is often disputed by the representatives of the at fault party since your claim can be dismissed if they can successfully argue this issue. Accordingly, it is important that you choose lawyers who have extensive experience fighting for injury victims so that they prove their injuries are serious under the No Fault Law. Our lawyers have decades of experience proving serious injuries.
We can help you review all of your damages and monetize them to determine a fair value for your claim.
If your injuries are shown to be serious under the law, you are entitled to fair and just financial compensation for all types of damages you sustained including:
- Pain and suffering for all physical and emotional suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
- Future pain and suffering if your injuries are found to be permanent in nature
- Unpaid or unreimbursed hospital or medical expenses
- Future hospital or medical expenses
- Lost wages that were not paid to you
- Future lost wages if your injuries prevent you from working going forward
- Loss of retirement or pension benefits
- Property damages
- Auto repair bills
- Loss of services you were able to perform around the home
- Loss of quality of your marital relationship
If your loved one lost their life from a car accident, Dansker & Aspromonte Associates can also pursue wrongful death damages. During a wrongful death claim, your compensation settlement may cover the above types of damages in addition to funeral and burial costs, loss of guidance and support, and other damages unique to your situation.
