Personal Injury Compensation

You want to obtain maximum compensation when you get hurt due to someone else’s negligence. The size of this compensation in personal injury cases depends on various factors.

How Well You Collect Evidence

Evidence is the driving force behind a strong personal injury case. Without extensive evidence, it is hard to ask for a large compensation.

Examples of solid evidence include:

  • Evidence that demonstrates the at-fault party’s negligence (photos, videos, witness testimonies, police reports).
  • Evidence that backs your injuries (medical bills, photos, doctors’ reports).
  • Evidence that shows your pain and suffering (photos, personal journals, expert witness testimony).
  • Evidence that backs lost wages (W-2 forms, financial statements, pay stubs).

Experienced personal injury attorneys help you collect evidence and evaluate the strength of your case based on what they can find. Most importantly, they advise which evidence carries value and which does not.

You can start collecting evidence as soon as the incident occurs. Unfortunately, at that point, many people are too hurt, scared, and confused to think about legal action.

Experienced attorneys know how to collect evidence days, weeks, or even months after the incident. However, the faster they begin, the more chances they have of gathering the most valuable pieces.

The Severity of Your Injuries

The more you get hurt, the more money you can try to recover. For example, if you break an arm in a car accident, you will get less money than someone who sustained a traumatic brain injury or needs complex surgery.

People with catastrophic injuries and permanent disabilities usually recover high amounts. However, just because your injuries are not severe does not mean you should not fight for your money.

These injuries can still require medical assistance, force you to miss work, and cause pain and suffering. Even if you recover quickly, you can still seek damages.

Insurance Policy Limits

When you file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company, you can only ask for the amount the policy covers. For example, the settlement depends on the at-fault party’s auto liability insurance limits if you sustain injuries in a car accident.

In the Bronx, minimum auto insurance requirements include:

  • $25,000 for injury and $50,000 for death per person in the accident (if only one person needs compensation).
  • $50,00 for injury and $100,000 for death if two or more people need compensation.

Accordingly, if your personal injury claim is for $100,000, the minimal insurance can only cover $25,000.

You can directly sue the at-fault party for the remaining amount when this happens. An attorney can build a strong case and present it in court to maximize your chances of winning.

The Multiplier

Besides recovering economic damages (medical expenses, lost wages, property damage), you can seek compensation for non-economic damages or pain and suffering.

Compensation for pain and suffering is usually higher than for economic damages. This happens because judges and insurance companies typically use the multiplier method to calculate non-economic damages.

They multiply your economic damages by a number to get the amount of non-economic damages.

The number depends on many:

  • Severity of injuries
  • Probable time of recovery
  • Permanent or temporary disfigurement
  • Impact on quality of life

You need to gather specific evidence and hire expert witnesses to back pain and suffering. With an attorney’s assistance, you can prove that you are entitled to significant compensation for your emotional anguish.

Personal Injuries in the Bronx

Tens of thousands of car accidents happen in the Bronx every year. More than 9,000 of them result in personal injuries. While some are minor, victims still have to cover medical bills, miss work, and solve transportation problems.

The most common cause of traffic accidents in the Bronx is distracted driving. If a driver who hit your vehicle was looking at a smartphone, eating, or tuning the radio, they were acting negligently. If you can prove this, it is possible to recover sizable compensation.

The most dangerous intersections in the Bronx include:

  • Jerome Avenue and Clifford Place
  • East Gun Hill Road (near Bronx River Parkway)
  • The Bruckner Expressway and East 141st Street

While other causes of personal injuries, such as slip and fall incidents or medical malpractice, are less common than traffic accidents, they still happen. For example, in New York, around 130,000 workplace injuries occur annually.

A local Bronx personal injury attorney has experience with common personal injury cases in the area and knows which steps to take to maximize the possible compensation.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations establishes your deadline to file a personal injury lawsuit. In the Bronx, this time is three years. If you do not file a lawsuit within three years from the time you got hurt, you may lose your chance to recover compensation.

The exceptions to the statute include:

  • Age: If the victim is a minor, the statute of limitations starts working when they turn 18.
  • State of mind: If injuries cause the victim to be in an unsound mind, the statute comes into effect when the victim regains a sound state of mind.
  • Location: If the at-fault party leaves the state of New York and the victim cannot serve them, the clock starts running from the moment they return. This also works if the at-fault party stays in New York but lives under a false name.

If none of the exceptions apply to you and you miss the three-year filing deadline, the judge will likely dismiss the claim.

Many people who suffer from personal injuries put off the filing process until they recover. It is essential to understand that three years is hardly a long time.

Putting off legal action can reduce your payout because:

  • Witnesses forget details or leave town.
  • Evidence fades and becomes harder to collect.
  • The at-fault party’s financial situation can change.
  • The at-fault party can leave the state.

Even if you are still dealing with your injuries, you can still recover a significant amount of money by demonstrating your need for future treatment.

With an experienced attorney by your side, you can start legal action as soon as possible and improve your chances of getting fair compensation.

Personal Injury Incidents

A personal injury is an injury you suffer due to someone else’s negligent actions.

The typical personal injury cases occur due to:

The most common injuries that lead to personal injury lawsuits include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burns
  • Internal organ damage

Proving negligence is the main factor contributing to your case’s strength. Without it, you cannot claim personal injury damages.

To demonstrate negligence, you must prove:

  1. The at-fault party had a duty of care to you (the person or company was legally responsible for acting reasonably to prevent injuries).
  2. There was a breach of duty of care
  3. The breach of duty of care caused injuries
  4. Injuries led to specific damages

To prove negligence, you must identify responsible parties, collect evidence, hire expert witnesses, and much more. Without an experienced attorney in your corner, making easy mistakes that could cost you the chance to recover damages.

Negotiating With the Insurance Company

Many personal injury cases end with a settlement from the at-fault party’s insurance company. To ensure the settlement is fair, you must conduct effective negotiations.

Negotiating with an insurance company is never easy. Their goal is to minimize or avoid a payout. Insurance adjusters use various techniques to pressure victims into taking a lower settlement.

Even with legal experience, negotiating with an insurance company when you are emotionally involved can be counterproductive. Many victims (even lawyers) prefer to delegate negotiations to an experienced attorney.

What to Do After Sustaining an Injury

The first thing to do after an accident that causes your injuries is to get medical attention. While it can be helpful to collect evidence the moment an incident occurs, your health is still a top priority.

When you start feeling better, look for an attorney. The faster you hire a reliable firm, the more chances a lawyer has to collect important evidence from the site of the incident.

With an attorney in your corner, you can take legal action on time, avoid mistakes, and maximize your chances of recovering sizable damages.

Accidents Involving Injuries or Fatalities Citywide

Source: https://www1.nyc.gov/

Motorcycle Accidents

According to New York’s Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research (ITSMR), 3,708 motorcycle accidents in 2018 resulted in 150 bikers losing their lives, seven more than the previous year. Fortunately, the total number of crashes represents a decrease, but plenty of New York’s bikers suffered injuries in severe crashes.

Motorcycling is an efficient way to get around the busy roads in the Bronx, but bikers also face more risk than those in passenger vehicles, because they lack the protection afforded by a car or truck. When motorists don’t check their blind spots, break traffic laws, or engage in other negligent driving behaviors, they can cause motorcycle accidents that result in severe, sometimes fatal, motorcycle crashes. Our firm advocates for motorcycle accident victims so that they recover compensation for the full cost of their injuries.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents in the Bronx are among the most dangerous of all types of traffic collisions because of the incredible force of the impact caused by the size and the heavy weight of large trucks. A fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds fully loaded while the average passenger vehicle doesn’t weigh more than 4,000 pounds. The ITSMR estimates approximately 4,300 sustained severe injuries or died in truck accidents involving heavy trucks in one recent year. Unfortunately, this number continues to rise each year.

When truck drivers operate their big rigs while fatigued or under the influence, or break other traffic laws, they put all nearby motorists at risk for dangerous and potentially deadly crashes. Trucking companies that hire inexperienced drivers, don’t train them well and don’t maintain roadworthy trucks also contribute to accidents. At Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, we hold negligent truckers and trucking companies accountable to make sure accident victims can get the medical treatment that they need.

Pedestrian Accidents in the Bronx

Whether running or walking for exercise, or walking to Yankee Stadium, Little Italy, or the next bus stop in the Bronx, pedestrians are at risk for a motor vehicle striking them in the area’s steady traffic. Pedestrians have no protection between them and the ground, so a pedestrian knockdown can cause severe, catastrophic, and sometimes deadly injuries.

A blow to the head from the pavement might cause a traumatic brain injury, which can leave accident victims coping with the long-term impact of permanent brain damage. Additionally, pedestrians might suffer a host of other injuries including broken bones, back injuries, and spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries can be costly, requiring months or years of ongoing treatment. In the worst-case scenario, pedestrian accident victims might have to live in a long-term care facility because they need around-the-clock care. Our pedestrian accident lawyers take negligent drivers to task for pedestrian knockdowns.

Bronx Uber Accidents

With the increasing popularity of rideshare companies like Uber throughout New York’s boroughs also comes an increased risk of being involved in an Uber accident. Uber drivers have additional challenges, especially in terms of distractions, because of riders and dealing with Bronx traffic. Additionally, many Uber drivers work for other rideshare companies or have additional jobs, causing them to drive while drowsy or fatigued, putting riders and other motorists at risk.

You might get injured as a rider or as a driver or passenger in another vehicle. Regardless of the situation, you need to help keep careless Uber drivers off the road and hold them accountable when they cause accidents. The legal team at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, has experience taking on large insurance companies associated with Uber and other rideshare companies.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

As elders age, they may not properly care for themselves. It may also become more difficult to care for them on our own. When this occurs, families must make the difficult decision to place them in a nursing care facility. These facilities must provide a certain standard of care and certainly cannot abuse loved ones. Unfortunately, instead of treating elders with the dignity and respect they deserve, some facilities and caregivers neglect and/or abuse loved ones.

Neglect might be caused by inadequate training and a lack of caregivers, but those aren’t excuses. Elder abuse is morally reprehensible and unacceptable. Our personal injury attorneys will help you seek justice on behalf of your loved one, so you get compensation to provide the best care possible.

Medical Malpractice

Society relies on and trusts doctors to diagnose and treat disease and illness. When doctors and other medical professionals fail at their jobs or fraudulently cover up mistakes, they break our trust. Even worse, they haven’t upheld their legal obligation or duty to their patients. Medical errors can cause injury and death, but doctors can also fail to diagnose an illness or disease, letting patients and their families cope with unneeded suffering or death. Malpractice lawsuits might occur for a wide variety of reasons, such as misdiagnosis, botched childbirth, wrong prescriptions, surgical errors, and simple things, like not thoroughly reviewing a patient’s medical history.

Leaving surgical tools, gauze, or sponges inside a patient’s body after surgery can also give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit. The medical malpractice lawyers at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, can help you through the extra steps required to file a medical malpractice suit and stop negligent hospitals and medical professionals from hurting more patients.

Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

Property owners in the Bronx have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for visitors. This includes business patrons and those who use public property, such as playgrounds, parks, and swimming pools. When property owners fail, visitors can experience dangerous slips, trips, or falls.

Some examples of property owner negligence that cause injury include the failure to remove snow and ice from parking lots and storefronts, loose carpet or tiles, spills, slippery cleaning products, loose steps or handrails, and malfunctioning elevators. Individuals, corporations, and government entities might be property owners named in a personal injury lawsuit. We investigate the conditions that led to a client’s slip, trip, or fall accident to build a strong case against property owners who don’t maintain their premises.

Construction Accidents

In the Bronx, there is always construction happening. Construction sites are dangerous locations for workers, bystanders, and passersby. Piles of unstable materials can fall, machinery can break, heavy equipment operators might be careless, and toxic fumes or chemicals might be present. Anyone who suffers injuries on or near a construction site deserves compensation for his or her injuries, which are often debilitating and sometimes fatal. If you sustained injuries in a construction accident, you need to contact the personal injury attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP.

If you were on the job, you might have to file a workers’ comp claim and file a lawsuit against a third party. In other cases, workers’ compensation doesn’t apply. A member of our team can advise you on the best way to proceed based on the circumstances of your injury. In either case, developers and contractors must be held accountable for negligence that puts those nearby their site at risk for accident and injury.

Bronx Personal Injury Lawyers Answers Your Questions

Jacoby & Meyers multi million dollar advocates forum AwardWhen you or a loved one suffers an injury at the hands of another person, your focus following the accident should be on getting healthy and back to your normal life. We understand, and that’s what we want for you, too. Unfortunately, many personal injury victims find themselves confused and wondering what comes next in the aftermath of an accident.

At Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, our Bronx personal injury lawyers can help answer your questions. We’ve put together this guide to help you understand your options and what to expect when you file a personal injury claim. If you suffer an injury because of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or carelessness, New York law generally entitles you to compensation. At Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, we can help maximize your compensation.

What causes a personal injury?

Generally, personal injuries are those that you suffer due to another individual’s recklessness or carelessness. These are injuries that you’ve suffered through no fault of your own, but rather because another person actively injured you or failed to take appropriate steps to protect you from a dangerous situation.

Personal injuries happen in a variety of ways, including:

  • Car accident
  • Motorcycle accident
  • Truck accident
  • Slip and fall accident
  • Construction site accident
  • Workplace accident
  • Medical malpractice incident
  • Police misconduct
  • Battery
  • Assault
  • Gunshot

Violent crime in New York City and in the Bronx has slightly risen over the past years. Violent crime often results in the victim suffering a personal injury. For example, if you are the victim of a mugging in a dark alley, the perpetrator may hit you in the head to ensure an easy escape. Your injuries, which could include head trauma, constitute personal injuries suffered due to the actions of another individual.

Using this example, note the difference between a criminal and civil legal case. If you are mugged, and the police catch the perpetrator, he or she may face criminal charges. However, that criminal case will do little for you, besides perhaps providing you with moral vindication and returned property.

When you file a personal injury claim, however, you can show the extent of your physical injuries and your mental anguish, which can result in compensation. You will need to recover this compensation, so you do not have to pay your medical bills. If you did not cause your injuries, you should bear none of the responsibility of paying the bills.

Now, with the above example, criminals generally don’t carry liability insurance, so collecting compensation from them may prove difficult. But if a criminal attacked you at a hotel, theme park, restaurant, or nightclub, and that facility or business failed to provide adequate security, you may have a good third-party liability case. Did the business in question hire enough security guards or bouncers? Did it install security cameras or properly light the parking lot to deter crime or help you see danger better? Your Bronx personal injury lawyer might investigate these questions.

Bottom line: Working with a Bronx personal injury lawyer whom you trust is the best way to maximize your opportunity for compensation.

How long do I have to file a Bronx personal injury claim?

In New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims varies depending on the type of personal injury accident or crime involved. If you suffer injuries in a car accident, for example, you generally have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. On the other hand, if you suffer injuries in an assault or battery, you may only have one year to seek justice.

This discrepancy in the law often causes confusion among personal injury victims, and we are here to help eliminate that confusion and guide you on your path to recovery. When you work with a seasoned personal injury lawyer in the Bronx, you get the peace of mind you need knowing that your case is in the hands of someone who has been down this road before and understands what steps to take.

Claimants must meet extremely important deadlines. If you or your lawyer misses one of these deadlines, a court may prohibit you from filing your personal injury claim. This means you might end up paying out of pocket for your injuries. We do not want to see this happen to you, and that is why we stand ready to discuss your options with you.

Will my case go to trial?

While it is true that most personal injury claims settle out of court, sometimes, a trial is unavoidable. We know that, as a personal injury victim, you simply want this all behind you as quickly as possible. We understand, but we also only want to put this behind you once you have recovered compensation for your injuries.

Soon after your injury, you might receive a call from the at-fault party’s insurance company. This may excite you because the company will likely offer you a financial settlement that makes you feel as if you can finally put this terrible part of your life behind you and begin to heal. The problem with these initial offers is that they rarely reflect the true value of a claim. Have your attorney review the settlement offer and ensure that it reflects the true cost of your injuries, which may include future expenses.

Insurance companies often prey on victims and offer them quick settlement offers meant to close their cases. If you sign this low-ball settlement offer, you will likely waive your right to bring any future claims against the insurance company for this injury. As your Bronx personal injury lawyer, we can help you create an accurate estimate of your future medical needs, so you do not realize too late that your settlement was too small to cover all of your expenses. You should not have to pay a dime out of your own pocket to recover from an injury that wasn’t your fault.

Working with a trusted personal injury lawyer in New York can help you achieve that goal.

Even so, insurance companies sometimes refuse to act with reason. Even if your attorney presents them with compelling evidence that you were not at fault and thus deserve the full value of your claim, they may refuse to negotiate. Oftentimes, they employ defensive strategies that aim to bully unrepresented victims into accepting low-ball settlement offers. Fortunately, we are here to stand up to the big insurance companies for you.

If your case does indeed go to trial, you want to make sure you are working with a skilled personal injury attorney in the Bronx who has trial experience with personal injury claims. Not every attorney has that experience. At Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, we do. We are ready to work with expert witnesses and accident re-creation experts, take witness depositions, negotiate with insurance companies, and defend your rights at trial.

How much is my Bronx personal injury case worth?

Top 100 National Trial LawyersThis is the most common question that we receive from personal injury victims. The best way to answer is by reminding clients that the total value of a case depends on many factors.

Your lawyer will walk you through how to calculate an estimated value of your claim, but you generally want to account for the following:

  • Time out of work
  • Medical procedures and surgeries
  • Time spent in the hospital

These considerations will indicate how much you have suffered after your injuries and thus the true cost of your injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve to recover damages from the at-fault party. The accident that caused your injuries was not your fault, and you should not be on the hook for paying your medical expenses. Rather, the at-fault party should pay those. Your lawyer can help you hold that party liable and recover compensation to cover your bills.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

The answer to this question also depends on many factors. Depending on the type of injuries that you have suffered and the complexity of your personal injury case, it could take from mere to over a year to resolve your case.

Your case’s timeline will also somewhat depend on the skill of your lawyer. If your lawyer has strong negotiation skills and can prove to the insurance company that you deserve the full value of your claim, then your case will likely wrap up rather quickly. In other situations, even if your lawyer is a skilled negotiator, the insurance company may simply refuse to act reasonably, and your case may require a trial to ensure that you recover compensation for the full cost of your injuries.

We know you are suffering. We know you have physical injuries that you need to attend to, and we know you are stressed and worried about what the future holds. That’s why our goal is to ensure that we handle your personal injury claim in the most time-efficient way possible. We do not want to settle your case for less than it is worth, so if we expect that the insurance company is unwilling to negotiate, we might push for trial quickly. We do this to keep things moving, but it can also indicate to the insurance company that we are not going away. Sometimes, that can push the insurance representative to come back to the negotiating table.

At Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, in everything we do, we keep your best interests, your needs, and your future in mind. We understand the value of your claim, and we can work aggressively to prove why you deserve the full value of your claim. You deserve an advocate on your side with the experience that you need to maximize your recovery.

Our results speak for themselves. While you are focused on your injuries and returning to normal life, we focus on your personal injury claim and holding the negligent party at fault and liable for your injuries and your suffering.

Why do I need a Bronx personal injury lawyer?

Many people mistakenly believe personal injury cases are simple. Someone else caused your injury, so of course, that party should be liable for your injuries, your suffering, and your bills. Unfortunately, it’s rarely this easy.

The right Bronx personal injury attorney can make a difference in your case and play an integral part in your ability to recover compensation for the full cost of your injuries. Choosing a lawyer to help you protect your rights is an important step in your recovery process. You want a lawyer with experience in your type of personal injury case, one who knows the games insurance companies play, and one with the resources necessary to take your case to trial, if that’s what is required to maximize your compensation.
