Common Causes of Personal Injuries on Long Island

The following are common causes of personal injuries:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Auto accidents are among the most common types of personal injury cases we handle at Gruenberg Kelly Della. From car accidents involving drivers and pedestrians to truck accidents that result in multi-vehicle pile-ups, we are equipped to provide you with comprehensive legal representation at each step of your case.

Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

These types of accidents can occur just about anywhere and at any time. Whether it’s slipping on water at a retail store and injuring your back or falling and breaking your leg because the stairs to your apartment gave out, you are entitled to compensation if your injury was the result of another person’s negligence.

Product Defects

Products manufactured improperly can inflict serious injuries on unsuspecting consumers. Companies have a legal responsibility to ensure their products are safe for use before selling them to the public.

Medical Negligence

Injuries caused by medical negligence occur more frequently than you might think. Medical negligence occurs when doctors breach the duty they owe to patients by harming them or failing to take necessary steps that would likely prevent harm. Medical errors and misdiagnoses are common cases of medical negligence.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover for My Personal Injury?

Personal injury lawsuit awards are meant to make the injured party "whole" again from a financial perspective. Depending on the details of your case, our skilled lawyers can help you recover the following types of personal injury damages:

  • Lost Income: If your injury causes you to lose some of your salary and wages, then you can pursue compensation for “loss of earning capacity."
  • Medical Treatment: If your personal injury lawsuit is successful, you can be awarded compensation to cover the cost of medical care associated with the accident.
  • Property Loss: You can also be reimbursed for personal property that was damaged due to the accident, as well as repairs you had to make to your property.
  • Pain & Suffering: The physical pain you endure due to your injury can also be compensated if you can prove it can be attributed to the accident that caused it.

New York Personal Injury Laws

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, New York is a “no-fault” state. This means that if you have been involved in an accident that resulted in serious injury, the insurance company has to pay for medical care regardless of who is at fault. If you want to file a lawsuit against the vehicle that is at fault for the accident, you will have to breach the no-fault threshold, which determines if you have a personal injury under the law.

Under New York’s comparative negligence statute, the court will determine the percentage of fault for each party if both are deemed negligent. The damages will then be awarded proportionally.

If you have been injured in an accident and want to sue the negligent party, you must file your lawsuit within three years of the date you were injured, otherwise, the statute of limitations will expire and you won’t be able to pursue the compensation.

How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help?

Personal injury cases are complex and require you to prove various aspects of your injury and its impact on your life. If you want to recover the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to, then you should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to get the legal guidance you need to successfully navigate your case. Call Gruenberg Kelly Della today to set up your case consultation with a dedicated personal injury lawyer on Long Island.

New York Personal Injury FAQ

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in New York?

According to the New York Statute of Limitations, you have three years from the date of the injury to file a personal injury claim. If you've suffered an injury due to a car accident, slip and fall, construction accident, or another accident caused by another party's negligence, it's important for you to contact an experienced and trusted Long Island personal injury attorney from Gruenberg Kelly Della as soon as possible.

How long does whiplash last?

One of the most common injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents is whiplash. Whiplash is caused by the head being violently forced about during the collision, which can severely damage the muscles, discs, ligaments, and nerves in the neck and shoulders. Whiplash symptoms can persist up to 3 months, but in severe cases, the pain has been known to last as long a year.

When should I see a doctor after an accident?

If you've been involved in an accident, even a minor one, it's important to see a doctor as soon as possible. Many people put off seeing a doctor because they don't "feel" injured, especially if the accident was minor. However, our body's natural reaction of shock and increased adrenaline can prevent us from experiencing the full weight of our injuries. Seeing a doctor immediately after an accident will help identify injuries before they cause long-term or permanent damage.

In addition, since a personal injury claim must be filed within three years, it's important to have a trained medical professional begin documenting your injuries as soon as possible, and throughout the whole course of your claim. A skilled lawyer from Gruenberg Kelly Della will do everything in their power to win your case, but without proper documentation of your injuries, it may not be possible to secure the maximum amount of recovery you deserve.

Can I sue my employer after a work-related injury?

In New York, the rules regarding this are very simple. If you are an employee injured at work, you are entitled to workers' compensation, but generally, you cannot sue your employer for additional damages. However, if it can be proved that your injury was sustained due to gross negligence on part of your employer, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit in pursuit of further damages. Additionally, you may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit if a third party other than your employer caused your work-related accident. Since this area of law is very complex, we encourage you to call Gruenberg Kelly Della to schedule a free consultation in which we can discuss the details of your case and give you concrete answers about the nature of your claim.

How long does a slip and fall lawsuit take?

The length of any personal injury lawsuit, including slip and fall injuries, depends greatly on the skill and effectiveness of your lawyer. Read our full blog on this topic or call our office to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.

Can I seek compensation if I was partially at fault?

In most personal injury cases, New York follows the rule of pure comparative negligence, which means that multiple parties can hold the blame for an accident that only injures some of the parties. Even if you are found partially to blame, you can still file a personal injury claim to recover compensation. However, the amount of compensation you are awarded will be reduced by the percentage of blame you are found to hold. For example, if the court finds you responsible for 20% of the blame, you will only be able to receive 80% of the compensation you were initially awarded.

What is a contingency fee and how does it work?

If a lawyer in New York says they work off a contingency fee, it means you, the client, are not required to pay any attorney fees unless the lawyer is able to secure a favorable outcome to your case. In New York, there is a cap on contingency fees of 33.3%. That means you, the client, will receive 66.7% of the amount recovered from either settlement or verdict; the rest will be applied to the attorney fees.
