Types of Personal Injury Cases
A variety of accidents and incidents may stem from someone’s negligence or recklessness, potentially qualifying the victims for compensation.
You may have a case if you or a loved one has suffered from one of the following injuries. A personal injury lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence to determine liability in your accident.
Construction Workplace Accidents
Occupational hazards often occur in the construction industry due to the nature of the work. Some hazards on construction sites that may lead to accidents resulting in personal injury include:
- Arc flashes, blasts, and electric shocks
- Collapsing trenches and scaffolds
- Defective forklift and other construction equipment
- Falls from ladders, scaffolds and high areas
- Slips on stairways
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Under New York Insurance Law Section 5102 (d) motor vehicle collisions involving cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles that result in serious physical injuries qualify a victim to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Depending on the nature of the accident, multiple parties may share liability for the injuries and losses.
If your loved one was in an accident and it resulted in wrongful death, you and your family have a right to collect compensation for:
- The Pain and Suffering endured by your loved one
- Lifetime income and benefits your loved one was entitled to receive
- Mental and emotional suffering you and your loved one experienced
- Compensation for the loss of support and guidance suffered by the family members
- Funeral and Burial expenses
Other losses may qualify for compensation, depending on your relationship with the deceased.
If you tripped and fell on a sidewalk or stairwell, you may be entitled to compensation from the property owner or manager. In some cases, the liable party might be a government entity. We can help you determine your right to recover compensation for your losses.
Line of Duty Injuries
If you or a loved one was injured in the line of duty as a police officer or firefighter you may be entitled to sue the person, corporation, or other entity that caused the accident and you may be able to sue your employer including the City of New York. We want to help you seek justice and recover the compensation to which you are entitled.
Medical Malpractice Injuries
If a doctor or medical professional failed to act in a reasonable and prudent manner in conformance with the prevailing medical standards of care and you or a family member was harmed because of it we can hold them responsible. Also, a physician who practices medicine while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, for example, violates the standard of care by acting negligently and recklessly.

Limitations on Filing a Case Action in New York
There are limits on the amount of time you have to institute a lawsuit in all types of cases. Some time limits are shorter than others. Some claims need to be filed within 90 days after an accident. New York State Civil Practice Law & Rules CPLR 214 (5), provides that you may file a claim within three years from the date of the accident for many but not all types of lawsuits. Three years may seem like a long time to decide to file a claim but in order to give yourself the opportunity to receive the greatest possible amount of compensation for your Manhattan personal injury, you should contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after seeking medical attention.

Potential Compensation Following a Manhattan Personal Injury Accident
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, we want to get you the most compensation for your long-term needs. Sometimes the financial problems caused by the accident increase over time. Also, some injuries do not immediately result in symptoms and cause latent ongoing medical conditions that emerge in the future. This is also why it is important to seek medical attention immediately following an accident, even if you do not suspect a serious injury. Following up with treatments and doctor’s visits will also help you establish the evidence to prove your injuries and losses in order to fully compensate you in the insurance claim or lawsuit.
When we work with a client, we strive to find every possible recovery entitlement. We will review your medical documents that pertain to the accident and other information to determine the types of recoveries to which you are entitled. You may receive compensation for your losses, such as:
- Past, Present and Future physical pain and suffering
- Permanent Injuries including loss of use of body parts
- Continuing medical care
- Lifetime lost wages
- Long-term psychological damage
