The New York State Serious Injury Threshold is the law that defines which injuries are considered “serious.” In other words, it outlines the types and severity of the injuries that entitle you to pursue compensation if they were caused by the negligence of another person.
Why our Firm:
In most personal injury cases arising from motor vehicle accidents, you will need to establish the negligence of a defendant driver. This means that you will need to show that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care, failed to abide by that duty, and thereby caused injuries to the plaintiff. Many drivers behave carelessly behind the wheel, such as by texting while driving, driving while intoxicated, speeding excessively, or failing to yield at intersections. These actions likely would support a negligence claim. A victim may be able to obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other costs and losses.
