Your Right to Legal Consultation
New York law states that you may be able to receive compensation if the other party behaved in a negligent manner, and it resulted in your injury.
The lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte want to hear about your case, even if other law firms turned you down. Our decades of experience and willingness to take our cases to trial enable us to accept cases that other firms are reluctant to accept. We fight for our clients’ rights every day. Our contingency-fee basis relieves you of having to pay any up-front costs, allowing you to recover peacefully as we work on your case.
Negligence May Cause Serious Injury
If another party’s negligent actions caused your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team fights to establish that the other side acted in a negligent way. If we are able to establish that the other party’s negligent behavior caused your injuries, you will be able to recover compensation for those injuries. Negligence can be proven in a variety of different circumstances, such as in cases of motor vehicle accidents, construction worksite injuries, slip or trip and falls, defective product injuries, or medical and nursing home negligence.
Types of serious injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Brain injuries, including concussions
- Broken bones
- Limb amputations
- Loss of senses, such as hearing, sight, and taste
- Poisonings, such as from lead and other toxic chemicals
- Serious burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Injuries that require surgical procedures
To prove your serious injuries were related to the accident, we may collect a variety of documents, including police records, witness statements, video surveillance, and medical records.
You Deserve Fair Compensation for Your Catastrophic Injury
Your serious injury may be short-term or have a permanent impact on your life.
Either way, you may be entitled to seek recovery for:
If your injuries keep you from working, you can recover the wages you lost. Both wages from recovery time and time you needed to take off for appointments are compensable.
Lost Earnings Over a Lifetime
If your injury took away your ability to work or required you to work fewer hours or take a lesser paying job, you can recover the difference in wages. If you are a union worker, you may also be entitled to be reimbursed for the loss of pension benefits lost as a result of not being able to work.
A serious injury often requires ongoing care. You can recover both past and future medical expenses. You may be able to recover ambulance fees, hospital stays, prescription medications, bills for assistive devices, and more.
Pain & Suffering
Catastrophic injuries often cause intense physical and emotional pain and suffering. Once a party is held responsible for your injuries, they are required by law to fairly compensate you for all your physical and mental pain and suffering, as well as compensation for your loss of enjoyment of life. As your lawyer and advocate, we strive to ensure maximum recovery for our client’s pain and suffering.
Scarring, Emotional Trauma, & Embarrassment
One type of serious injury is permanent scarring and disfigurement. In addition to causing physical pain and making it difficult to perform certain tasks, these scars and disfigurement can be highly visible. This can cause substantial emotional trauma and embarrassment and can result in compensation.
Related Out-of-Pocket Expenses
You can also recover out-of-pocket expenses, such as parking fees at a doctor’s office or the costs of renovating your house to accommodate your disability.
