Bronx Scooter Accident Lawyer
When scooter accidents happen in the Bronx, victims can seek financial recovery if they sustained serious injuries as the result of another’s negligence. There are different parties that could be at fault for these accidents, and our attorneys can help identify them.
If you are considering a lawsuit following a scooter accident, it is important that you speak to legal counsel right away. Taking on these cases on your own could be risky and put you at an unnecessary disadvantage. Our Bronx scooter accident lawyer is ready to handle your case.
What Is My Case Worth?
A scooter accident can lead to severe injuries. Accident-related losses can be physical, emotional, and financial. It is understandable for anyone recovering from a scooter accident to wonder what their case might be worth. Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how a case will turn out.
Our lawyers can investigate your accident and make sure to account for the various ways your injuries caused you losses.
Potential Forms of Recovery
While our firm cannot promise a specific amount of financial recovery, we could review the facts of your case to identify your losses. This starts with a review of every type of recovery that might be available, including:
- Lost wages
- Past and present medical bills
- Diminished future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Property damage
Make Sure You See a Doctor
After your accident, nothing is more important than recovering from your injuries. Even if you believe your injuries to be minor, see a doctor as soon as possible. Only a physician can assess you and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan.
Furthermore, seeing a doctor can help support your case for financial recovery. A doctor can help link your injuries to the accident, which is an important part of proving another party’s negligence. Medical documentation can also help us estimate any future medical care you may need. You will want your potential settlement to reflect such future expenses.
To protect your health and your case, seek medical attention immediately after an accident.
There Are Different Ways to Resolve Your Injury Case
When our firm takes on your scooter accident case, there are different ways we could resolve it in your favor. Many personal injury cases are ultimately concluded through a mutual settlement agreement. While settlements are common, we could also help you secure the financial recovery you deserve by winning a verdict at trial.
Most of the time, these cases resolve through a settlement. In exchange for your agreement to drop the case forever, the insurance company or defendant agrees to pay you a set amount of money. Settlement offers are common, but they are not always worth accepting. In some cases, the insurance company might offer an inadequate settlement amount that does not fairly address your losses. Our firm could prevent you from settling your case for pennies on the dollar.
If the other side refuses to settle, we are prepared to fight for a fair outcome at trial. Throughout this process, we will handle every aspect of your case so that you can avoid any of the stress of trial preparation. If we are successful, you will have a court judgment you could use to collect your damages.
Your Time to File a Scooter Accident Lawsuit in the Bronx Is Limited
If you are injured in a scooter accident through no fault of your own, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the responsible party or parties. That right is not limitless, however, as there is a deadline you must comply with. This deadline is known as the statute of limitations.
The amount of time you have to file your lawsuit can vary. Typically, personal injury cases in the Bronx must be filed within three years from the date of the accident. However, that deadline can vary depending on the circumstances. For example, if the accident results in a fatality, the deadline to file a wrongful death lawsuit is only two years. The time to file your case is even shorter if a government entity is a defendant.
The cost of filing your lawsuit late is steep. Most of the time, the court will have little choice but to dismiss your case with prejudice. When your case is dismissed with prejudice, you are barred from ever filing it again.
You Could Pursue Your Case Without Any Upfront Legal Fees
Finances can be tight for many people that are injured in a scooter accident. These accidents can require extensive medical treatment, and the cost of this treatment can be high. If unexpected medical expenses weren’t enough, many injury victims also lose out on their source of income when they are too injured to work.
If you are feeling financial pressure following a scooter accident, you have the ability to pursue a personal injury lawsuit without any upfront legal costs. This is possible because our firm operates on a contingency fee basis. We only recover our fee if we collect financial recovery on your behalf. That means if you do not get compensation, we do not earn a legal fee.
