After an accident in which you suffered a serious injury to your eye, you may be facing a long road to recovery. You may not be able to work in the same capacity that you did before the accident, or you may not be able to work at all. You may have ongoing pain and medical expenses.
A loss of vision lawyer with Dansker & Aspromonte Associates can help you cut through the red tape that insurance companies may place in your way. We will fight to help you win the settlement you deserve.
How We Can Help You win a Settlement
Receiving the compensation you deserve after an accident involving an eye injury is not as easy as you may think. Insurance companies may try to convince you to take a smaller settlement than you deserve.
By hiring Dansker & Aspromonte Associates to represent you, you can be sure we will fight as hard as we can to help you build a strong claim to obtain the maximum recovery for your case. Here are some of the ways we can help.
Our Past Experience Speaks for Itself
Since our founding in 1988, we have helped clients win numerous six and seven-figure settlements and jury verdicts.
If you have lost your vision as a result of another person’s negligence, count on our team to understand the future you are facing. We have had success in past cases involving all kinds of personal injuries, including eye injuries.
Determining the Extent of Your Losses
After seeing a doctor concerning your loss of vision, you may receive a diagnosis of temporary or permanent loss of vision. This diagnosis, and your attempt to recover from it, will greatly affect your life going forward.
When another person’s negligence causes your eye injury, you deserve fair and just compensation for each and every aspect of your damages including your pain and suffering, lost earnings, and medical expenses. A loss of vision lawyer can help you fight for the best result for you given your unique circumstances.
We’ll Investigate what Happened in Your Accident to Build the Strongest Case Possible
To receive the settlement you deserve, we have to work together to prove what happened in your accident and the full extent of your injuries. We cannot win a judgment for you unless we can show that another party behaved in a negligent manner, which led to your injuries.
We will work to prove what happened to you in a few different ways, including:
- Speaking with witnesses
- Reviewing any video footage or photographs
- Analyzing the scene of your injury
- Retaining experts in accident reconstruction
- Speaking with medical experts about your long term health situation
- Reviewing police reports
- Obtaining sworn testimony from all at-fault parties
When Does an Eye Injury Lead to a Personal Injury Case?
If you are uncertain whether you have a personal injury case after suffering an eye injury, we can help.
Some eye injuries people suffer after accidents include:
- Scratches on the surface of the eye
- Puncture of the eyeball
- Foreign body in the eyeball
- Contusion to the eye
- Brain injury that leads to blindness or vision loss
Non-Economic Damages You Can Claim
If you suffered your accident because of the negligent or reckless behavior of someone else, resulting in your vision loss, New York law entitles you to seek fair and just compensation for actual injuries you sustained based upon the evidence in your case.
Pain and Suffering
This area of damages includes money for your physical pain, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life caused by your injuries. Pain and suffering compensation is often the largest area of damages. In the event that medical evidence shows that your injuries are permanent, as eye injuries often are, you may be entitled to substantial damages for future pain and suffering as well.
You may be entitled to recover a sum of money to compensate you for the cost of all medical and hospital treatment, including surgeries, radiology tests, therapy, medications, and other costs. In the event that you will require future medical care, you may also claim the expected costs for all medical care caused by a responsible party for the rest of your life.
If you were unable to work or were required to work in a diminished capacity because of your injuries, you are entitled to claim all past and future lost wages, pension benefits, and other work-related benefits that you lost because of your injuries.
We do not Back Down From Fighting for a Fair Settlement for You
After suffering an eye injury because of someone else’s negligence, you may be offered a sum of money from the at-fault party or parties that is woefully inadequate given the full extent of your injuries.
You may also be unfamiliar with the true value of your claims or the way that your injuries will affect your life in the future. Do not rush into a quick settlement with the at-fault party without speaking to an experienced personal injury lawyer first. In most instances, the amount that you will be offered to settle your claim before you hire a lawyer may be significantly less than you deserve.
Once you accept a settlement, you cannot change your mind later and seek additional compensation if your condition doesn’t improve, or worse, deteriorates further. In order to avoid any catastrophic mistakes, consult a lawyer immediately after your injuries.
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates we offer a free consultation so you have nothing to lose by speaking to a professional. We will answer your questions, advise you about the law and offer to conduct a thorough investigation of your unique case.
Our Attorneys Work on a Contingency-Fee-Basis
When you contact Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, you will not be required to pay us any money upfront as we work solely on a contingency basis. This means that we only earn a legal fee when you recover compensation.
If you choose to hire us, we will stand by your side throughout the case and build a strong claim for maximum compensation. If the at-fault party does not offer fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries, our lawyers will present your case at trial. Call us today to learn how we can fight for you.
