New York City traffic has a reputation for being particularly bad. While car accidents are all too common here, particularly in Manhattan, some car accidents cause severe and permanent injury. If you or your family member was involved in a severe accident due to another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
At Nass, Roper, & Levin, PC, our attorneys are experienced in Manhattan car accident personal injury lawsuits. We know what it takes to succeed in a car accident lawsuit. While no amount of compensation can take away the trauma of your experience, especially if you have been severely injured, it can help ease your family’s financial and emotional burden.
To succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove that someone else’s negligent act or omission caused your injury. In car accident lawsuits, you must prove that another driver’s careless, reckless, or malicious driving caused the car accident that in turn caused your injuries. Proving which driver is at fault is sometimes complicated in car accident cases.
Our experienced attorneys are familiar with the process of gathering information about your car accident that we will be able to use if your case goes to trial. To succeed at trial, you will need the right medical experts to prove that your car accident caused your injuries. Our attorneys know how to secure the best information, witnesses, and experts for our clients’ success.
What Type of Compensation Can I Recover in a Car Accident Lawsuit?
Successful personal injury plaintiffs are entitled to receive the following types of compensation:
- Cost of medical treatment to include hospital stay costs, ambulance costs, and the costs of surgery or medical procedures caused by the car accident. This amount could also include physical therapy and in-home health care costs, when applicable.
- The estimated cost of future medical bills.
- The cost of property damage such as the cost of your damaged car.
- The cost of lost wages resulting from the car accident.
- Compensation for the loss of future earnings.
If your loved one passed away as a result of a car accident caused by someone’s negligence, you might be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. New York law allows a decedent’s legal representative to file a claim for wrongful death on behalf of the decedent’s estate.
If successful, the victim’s estate could be compensated for funeral expenses, the loss of financial support of the victim, and medical expenses associated with the wrongful death.
