Getting Compensation for Auto Accident Injuries

It’s important that you consult with a personal injury lawyer when you have been in an auto accident in NYC. The attorneys at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP can be consulted in this matter. We have the knowledge and experience to help you win compensation to cover your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages, among other financial hardships you may have to face because of an auto accident. It is possible for injured parties to seek compensation for the damages and injuries that were caused by a car accident. Not all car accident cases are the same, so the outcome will be determined by the evidence and facts presented, as well as who is determined to be at-fault. When you use the assistance of a Dankser & Aspromonte Associates lawyer in NYC, you can get have your legal options laid out, as well as the possible outcomes of your case.

Obtaining Monetary Recovery for Your Losses

When a person has been injured in an auto accident by another driver or party, he or she can seek compensation for the damages. The compensation is to cover the injured party’s injuries and losses. There are different injuries that one can be compensated for, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries and head injuries. You’re also able to seek compensation to cover pain and suffering caused by physical injuries that were sustained during the accident.

It is also possible for you to obtain compensation for any damages that the accident caused. This includes present and future medical bills, such as for physical therapy, making accommodations to your home or rehabilitation. Personal property damage can also win you monetary recovery.

Another form of damage that is compensable is mental pain and suffering, although this is much harder to calculate. It’s much easier to receive monetary recovery for emotional damage that is caused by disfigurement or permanent impairment. You can even sometimes recover compensation for your loss of enjoyment in life.

If the current injury you have was present before the auto accident, but was aggravated by the collision, you can still receive compensation for it. Since it was made worse, it can be treated as a new injury for the case.

After you have sustained an injury, it’s a good idea to keep a daily log or journal of your injury and how it is affecting you emotionally and physically. This can then be used as supporting evidence for your case for pain and suffering.

Receiving Monetary Recovery for Loss of Consortium

When you get a divorce or become separated due to an auto accident, this is considered a loss of consortium. Even if the relationship was already shaky, you can still claim loss of consortium in your lawsuit. This claim refers to the negative effects that an auto accident has had on a marital relationship. There are different benefits to being married, such as companionship, assistance, sexual relations, comfort and affection. When you lose these benefits because of divorce or separation that is permanent or temporary, you can file for loss of consortium and receive compensation for it.

Auto Insurance Coverage

In the majority of the auto accident cases, the injured receives monetary recovery from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. However, if the at-fault driver is underinsured or uninsured, then the victim will have to find compensation in other ways.

In the event that the victim had underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage within his or her auto insurance policy, then monetary recovery can be sought from his or her own insurer. If not, you can seek compensation from other sources, such as the spouse or their employer’s insurer. This will be determined by the auto insurance policy that the at-fault driver has.

The amount you receive for your auto accident case will be determined by how severe the damages and injuries were. There are other factors that play a part in this determination, including the state’s laws, evidence used to prove facts, the victim’s injuries and the actions made by the victim. How long the victim receives medical treatment, the insurance policies both parties have, the effects of the victim’s wages and whether the injuries are permanent are also factors in calculating how much compensation a victim can receive.
