Recoverable Damages Following a Personal Injury in Rockaway Beach
Each case is different, and many factors are considered when estimating the value of a personal injury claim. Compensable losses in your case could comprise:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical costs, including ambulance rides, hospital stays, follow-up care, rehab, therapy, and treatment
- Past and current lost wages, income, and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity, if your injuries affect your earning power
- Property damage costs, including vehicle and personal items repair/replacement
- Wrongful death-related costs, such as funeral and burial expenses
You could recover other losses depending on your situation. For instance, if your injury negatively affected your spousal relationship, you can seek compensation for loss of consortium.
We Encourage You To Consider Your Legal Options Now
CVP § 214 states that most individuals have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, the statute of limitations in New York can vary based on your situation. We highly recommend you speak with an attorney to determine the length of time you have to initiate a lawsuit.
Why? Because if you file your lawsuit outside the three-year period, you risk losing the right to seek damages.
What Can an Attorney from Dansker & Aspromonte Associates Do for You?
Our team will support your case by:
Your lawyer will review the facts of your case before proceeding with your claim. This may include reviewing traffic camera footage, interviewing witnesses, and asserting your legal rights. Each of these things can prove that because you were hurt, you deserve compensation.
Negotiating with Insurance Companies
Insurance companies frequently take advantage of people who don’t have legal representation. For instance, the insurer may offer less than you’re owed, hoping to save a few dollars on settling your case. It may also ask you to give a recorded statement where you could accidentally admit something that refutes your case.
When you partner with our personal injury team serving Rockaway Beach, we will manage all dealings with the liable insurance company. You don’t even have to answer the phone when a claims adjuster calls. We will field all communications and protect you from bad faith insurance practices.
