Available Compensation for Police and Firefighters
If you have been injured as the result of the negligence of another, New York law entitles you to fair and just compensation for each and every type of injury you sustained. Depending on the extent of your injuries, your accident may be affecting your personal life, physical capabilities, career, finances, health, and overall lifestyle. Thankfully, filing a claim or lawsuit gives you the chance to seek compensation for the hardships you have endured or may continue to endure into the future.
If the evidence supports your claim, you may be entitled to recover the following damages:
- Pain and suffering for all of your physical and emotional injuries
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of pension or retirement benefits
- The cost of medical treatments
- The cost of rehabilitation programs
- The psychological impact of disfigurements
- Long-term assistance with disabilities
- Any out of pocket expenses caused by your injuries
Every case is unique. You may be entitled to recovery for another type of damage not listed above. Our team can evaluate your circumstances and determine if any other damages are available in your case.
How a Lawyer from Our Firm Can Help You Build a Strong Case
With a Queens police and firefighter injuries lawyer by your side, we can be there to assist you with various aspects of the claims process. From conducting a careful investigation as well as gathering and securing evidence to determine fault for your accident to negotiating a settlement, our team is prepared to help resolve your claim with maximum recovery.
Some of our team’s legal services include:
The strength of every case depends upon a full investigation of your injuries that establishes that another is legally responsible. Our experienced and diligent legal team will investigate the circumstances of your accident by gathering all police, fire, and other incident reports, interviewing witnesses, analyzing video footage and photographs, studying City and State Building records and statutes, obtaining sworn statements from all parties, and retaining experts to support our claims of negligence.
Speaking on Your Behalf
After an accident, the at-fault party may attempt to contact you to discuss your medical condition or interest in bringing a legal claim. It is usually a good idea to consult a lawyer before you speak directly to representatives who work for the party who is responsible for your injuries. You may inadvertently say something that weakens your claim.
When you retain us to work for you, we will direct all communications to our office so that you do not have to deal with the inconvenience of speaking directly with the at-fault party and can instead focus on your own recovery.
Negotiating a Settlement
After we have conducted a careful review of the evidence in your case, the at-fault party may attempt to offer a settlement of your claim. Once you accept a settlement, you are usually prevented from ever recovering additional money from that party even if your condition worsens in the future. Therefore, an early settlement of your claim should be considered only if you have a clear picture of the full extent of your injuries.
Dansker & Aspromonte Associates has been fighting for victims like you since 1988. We will use our decades of experience to ensure that any settlement you accept represents a fair and just resolution of your claim. If the at-fault party fails to offer fair and just compensation to settle your case, we will file a lawsuit in Court.
Filing a Lawsuit
If a fair offer is not made to settle your case early on, we will file a lawsuit in Court and handle every aspect of the litigation process. This involves exchanging information with the other party’s legal counsel, demonstrating negligence, and proving your side of the claim.
New York’s statute of limitations may limit how long you have to file a lawsuit, so seeking prompt legal representation is important. If you fail to file your claim by this deadline or others, you could be prevented from recovering the compensation you deserve.
