Every year, thousands of people experience personal injury in New York. The law of New York State often defines which injuries are “serious” enough to entitle a person towards compensation. It is our job – as personal injury attorneys – to pursue that compensation to the fullest extent of the law. There are a number of determining factors when it comes to personal and bodily injury:
- Was it a case of negligence?
- Did the property owner/product owner overlook common safety concerns?
- What were the severity of the injuries/damages?
- What are the monetary limitations that New York places on these types of damages?
Personal injury can entail an injury related to a faulty product, a defamation of character, or a car crash; there are many types of injuries that can establish a reason to pursue compensation.
What Constitutes a Personal Injury?
Also known as tort law, a personal injury claim can be established when another person or entity is at-fault for mental or bodily damage to another. These injuries can entitle a person to a legal remedy. An injury can include car accidents, pedestrian injuries, elevator accidents, construction site injuries, slip and fall, wrongful death, and bus/train accidents, as well as defamation of character, defective products, and intentional wrong-doings.
