Understanding Liability in New York Personal Injury Claims

As the victim of someone else’s negligence, you carry the burden of proof. You are responsible for proving:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • They breached this duty by acting negligently
  • Their negligence directly caused the accident and your injuries
  • Your injuries resulted in damages

We can gather clear evidence to prove these points. Our hardworking Morris Park personal injury attorneys work with valuable resources like accident reconstructionists and medical professionals to build a strong claim, including, just by way of example, through the following evidence:

  • Photos of the accident scene, property damage, and your injuries
  • Witness testimony
  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Bills and statements
  • Personal statements
  • Expert review and analysis
  • Pay stubs

This information helps prove fault, to secure the damages you suffered from the responsible party’s actions. We work tirelessly to build a solid claim and negotiate with insurance companies to achieve successful results. While we try to settle your claim out of court, we are prepared to go to trial and fight for your rights in the courtroom if necessary.

What Damages Could You Recover for Your Morris Park Personal Injury Claim?

Sustaining injuries due to another person’s negligence can take a physical, mental, and financial toll on your life. These losses deserve recognition. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may recover compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering (past and future)
  • Lost wages and income (past and future)
  • Current and future medical bills
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Punitive damages

While some of these expenses, like medical bills and lost wages, are relatively straightforward to calculate, others, like pain and suffering, are far more complex. We review the details of your claim to accurately determine its value, giving you a better chance of receiving a just resolution to your case. 

It is also important to note that New York uses a pure comparative negligence system when awarding damages. If a case proceeds to trial and the jury renders a verdict as to liability, it assigns each party a percentage of fault for the accident. This percentage gets deducted from each party’s damages. For example, if you are found 20% at fault in a car accident case in which you are injured, your compensation will be reduced by 20%. We work on your behalf to demonstrate that liability lies with the other party or parties who caused your accident and injuries.
