New York Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury Attorney New York CityYou were in an accident and have been injured. You have pain and suffering; you have lost wages; your medical bills are piling up.  What do you? Who do you turn to? When you are dealing with the effects of a personal injury accident, you need to find a personal injury attorney in New York City to help you hold the right parties accountable and seek the full compensation that you deserve.

After an accident, you may think that the individual or his insurance company will automatically offer to compensate you for your injuries, medical bills and lost wages. Unfortunately, that is not reality.  In fact, in most situations, the exact opposite happens. The individual will take no responsibility for his or her actions and his or her insurance company will stand to gain from not compensating you.

Types of Compensation Available In Personal Injury Claims

When you are injured by the negligent actions of another party, you may be entitled to compensation for any injuries and out of pocket expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident. However, getting the full compensation that you are entitled to is not an easy process. Insurance companies will take any steps possible to minimize your claim and the compensation they owe you for your injuries. As such, to ensure that you obtain the maximum compensation that you deserve, it is in your best interest to hire an aggressive attorney who will fight for your rights.

The type and amount of compensation that you may seek depends on the specific facts of your case. However, in general, there are two types of compensation: general damages and specific damages. Specific damages entail any type of damage that can be specially proven with a receipt or record, such as medical bills. General damages, are damages that you have incurred that cannot be proven with a receipt, such as pain and suffering. Some common types of compensation that are generally available in personal injury cases include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional and mental trauma
  • Loss of consortium
  • Any other out of pocket expenses related to the accident

Important Characteristics of a Good Personal Injury Lawyer

Hiring the best personal injury lawyer is imperative in successfully resolving your case for obtaining the full compensation that you deserve. Choosing such a lawyer can be a daunting task. In order to make your attorney selection process easier, below is a list of important characteristics that you should look for when interviewing personal injury law firms and their attorneys:

  • A good reputation in the community, both amongst their fellow attorneys and judges and their clients
  • Track record in the specific type of case that you need an attorney for
  • Knowledge and experience in the specific type of law involved in your case
  • Financial resources to take your case to trial, if necessary
  • Your level of trust and comfort with the attorney

Personal injury cases can take months or even years to come to a resolution. As such, perhaps the most important factor in helping you make your decision is to like your attorney and trust him with your case. If you do not trust your attorney or feel comfortable with him, it may negatively impact the outcome of your case.
