Compensable Losses in a Serious Injury Case
Whether you’re dealing with broken bones, traumatic brain injury, nerve damage, or spinal cord injuries, our team can help you recover damages. After suffering a serious injury, you might find that an insurance company’s settlement offer does not cover all of your losses.
Rest assured that with our New York serious injury team on your side, we will determine all of your options. That being said, some of your compensable losses could include:
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future healthcare expenses, including medications and doctors’ visits
- Lost income, tips, commissions, and employee benefits
- Disability and scarring
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Impaired quality of life
- Funeral and burial expenses (if you lost a loved one)
Based on your situation, you could be entitled to damages other than those listed here.
How Can a New York Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Serve You?
A lawyer can see if your case meets New York’s serious injury threshold. Here are just some of the ways that we will build your case:
We Will Investigate Your Accident and Injuries
Our team will obtain and use the following information to prove your case:
- The police report
- Your medical records
- Your imaging scans and lab test results
- Photos of your injuries and the accident’s scene
- Testimony from eyewitnesses
- Expert analysis from accident reconstruction specialists and medical professionals
If security camera footage captured your accident, we can use that footage as well.
We Can Calculate the Value of Your Losses
After suffering a serious injury, your case’s value rests on many things, such as the severity of your injuries and the value of your economic losses. We can also factor in the following when calculating your case’s monetary value:
- Your missed time from work
- Your ability to live independently
- Your day-to-day function
- Your ability to work in the future (or maintain the same job)
- Your recovery period
- Your mental health
Serious injury cases do not come with predetermined values. Yet, we will fight for every dollar you are owed. We have no problem going to trial when necessary to obtain the best result on your behalf.
We Will File Your Insurance Claim
Although we prepare every case to be ready to go to trial, if you’re worried about going to trial, don’t be; the American Bar Association (ABA) says that most cases are resolved through pre-trial settlements. To resolve your case via a pre-trial settlement with the responsible insurance company, we will:
- Determine the at-fault and liable parties
- Examine how the relevant policies pertain to your situation
- Write and send your demand letter
- Manage all relevant communications
- Advise you on your options
- Negotiate a fair settlement
One piece of advice while we manage your case: don’t speak with representatives of the defendants or their insurance companies and do not agree to give a recorded statement. Doing so could damage your case. When the claims adjuster calls you, route their calls to us.

We believe that you deserve compensation if you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Whether the at-fault party in your case was an individual, business, or government entity, we can help you.
Going forward, we want you to fully understand your options. You can trust us to give you updates regarding your case and be available to answer your questions. With that, here are three things we want you to know right away:
You Don’t Have to Accept the Insurance Company’s Settlement Offer
The statute of limitations sets the time frame for how long you have to file a lawsuit. So, if the insurer tries to pressure you into accepting a settlement offer, saying you have a limited time to act, refer them to us.
You are under no obligation to accept an unfair offer – regardless of what the insurer tells you.
The Average Value of a Serious Injury Accident Case
The value of each personal injury case is determined on an individual basis. The nature of your injuries, the cost of your damages, and other aspects of your situation will determine your losses’ cumulative value.
You Have a Limited Time to File Your Case
Even if you don’t intend on filing a lawsuit, it’s a good idea to start the legal process early. If the statute of limitations runs out on your case, you could be ineligible to seek damages, per the ABA. By allowing our team to handle your situation, we can advise you on any relevant deadlines that impact your case.
