Your Potential Compensation in a Staten Island Personal Injury Cases
Without a personal injury lawyer on your side, you will likely be pressured by the insurance company to accept a quick settlement that is worth less than the full extent of your damages. This is common practice for these companies against most injury victims who have little knowledge of their rights, how to navigate the process, and how these companies generally operate.
At Dansker & Aspromonte, our reputation for toughness precedes us when dealing with insurance companies. That reputation puts you at an advantage. We know how to fight against insurance company tactics in seeking full and fair compensation for such damages as:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Rehabilitative and long-term care
- Out-of-pocket expenses, such as childcare and transportation expenses to and from medical appointments
- Lost wages or income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Property damage, such as to your vehicle, bike, or other personal belongings
- Reduced earning capacity
After an accident, it is often difficult to know the cost of what your injuries will entail especially in the long term. For this reason alone, it is vital to have a knowledgeable attorney handling your case who knows how to fully value your damages. This is important in damages that are difficult to quantify, such as pain and suffering. Our firm consults with specialists such as medical professionals, financial experts, and actuaries who can assist in making practical estimates of the real damages you should obtain.
Liable Parties in Staten Island Personal Injury Claims
In personal injury claims, more than one party may have contributed to or caused the accident in which you were harmed. Identifying all liable parties can be complicated but is vital in a claim so that they can all be held accountable. At Dansker & Aspromonte, you can count on our ability to handle all complexities of the claims process, including this one.
Potentially liable parties in any accident will depend on the type of accident in which you were injured. These parties can include:
- At-fault motorists
- Negligent owners of public or private property
- Medical professionals who failed to follow accepted standards of care
- Negligent daycare and school personnel
- Negligent trucking companies
- Manufacturers of defective consumer products
- Governmental entities, such as transit authorities and more
As an injury victim, you may have little time or ability to investigate all aspects of the accident. Our team can take the burden off you through an intensive investigation into the matter.
How a Staten Island Personal Injury Lawyer Works for You
The confusion, pain, and trauma of an accident can seriously hamper your ability to function in pursuing a fair settlement from an insurance company. It is all too easy to underestimate the full costs that you may be facing and to fall prey to the tactics of insurer representatives who want to get in and get out at the lowest possible payout. As a general rule, these companies never make it easy for injury victims. However, they think twice when dealing with a reputable and hard-hitting firm like ours.
When you work with us, we will do the following:
- Conduct a full investigation into the causes of the accident.
- Gather all vital evidence, such as witness statements, video camera footage, police reports, medical reports, and more to substantiate your claim.
- Bring in expert opinion about the true value of your damages against insurance company claims of reduced compensation.
- Provide advice and counsel to you and your family throughout every phase of the process.
- Engage in skilled negotiation with the insurance company.
- Take your case to civil court when it is in your best interests.
Time Limits in Personal Injury Cases
It is vital to know that personal injury cases in New York are subject to a statute of limitations. You are generally given three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. Other types of claims, such as those stemming from medical malpractice or government agency liability, have even shorter timeframes.
Because of the extensive investigation and other aspects of the claims process that are needed, it is vital that you contact our firm as soon as possible so that we can start on your case immediately. Over time, witnesses may forget and evidence may be lost, repaired, or destroyed making the task much more difficult. Too much is at stake when you have been seriously injured to delay. Our team of Staten Island personal injury attorneys is always standing by to discuss your case in a free evaluation to give you an honest assessment of your situation and important information about how we can help.
