Don’t let an injury that wasn’t your fault go uncompensated. Work with a Long Island injury attorney and find out what your claim could be worth.
Few situations are worse than getting injured due to someone else’s poor judgment or carelessness. Whether your injuries are serious or minor, you shouldn’t be the one paying for the cost of your recovery if you weren’t responsible for causing the accident that left you hurt or ill.
Under New York’s negligence laws, the other parties involved in the accident are responsible for compensating you for their share of the damages. Getting this compensation, however, can be a difficult and time-consuming task to take on by yourself.
Instead, consider working with a Long Island injury lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. We’ve helped hundreds of Long Islanders recover the compensation they needed to move on from their injuries, and we can help you, as well.
As experienced injury lawyers, we know how to assess and investigate personal injury claims for any type of wound or illness. Every claim is unique, and different types of injuries can lead to different types of damages, both financial and emotional.
Our firm will be able to help you recover full compensation no matter what the nature of your injuries is:
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are easily some of the most life-changing injuries that an individual can suffer. Brain damage can lead to greatly reduced cognitive and emotional functioning, which can in turn have a tremendously negative impact on your personal and professional lives.
You might no longer be able to work and earn an income. Your ability to interact with friends and family could likewise be compromised, depriving you of love and companionship. All of this is in addition to the extensive medical care and treatment that such a head injury is likely to require.
While some brain injuries, such as minor concussions, heal in time, others are permanent or long-lasting, forever altering the quality of your life. Working with an injury attorney from our firm will allow you to recover the compensation that will allow you to treat your brain injury and lead the best life possible.
Injuries to the spine can be every bit as life-altering as a brain injury. Whether you’ve suffered a minor case of whiplash or have experienced paralysis, you need to be compensated for the damage done to your quality of life.
Spinal injuries can greatly reduce your mobility, making it impossible to take part in the activities that once gave you joy and satisfaction. This reduced physical capability can also greatly damage your personal relationships, robbing you of companionship.
And of course, a back injury is expensive to treat and live with. You might require special mobility equipment, such as a wheelchair, or be forced to modify your vehicle or renovate your home. You shouldn’t have to pay for these expenses, and your injury lawyer will make certain that you don’t.
While certainly common, broken bones and fractures are no less painful and expensive to recover from. Depending on your job, a bone injury can also limit your ability to work while you recover, depriving you of the income you need to pay your bills and maintain your standard of living.
Our Long Island injury lawyers know how to maximize the value of a broken bone claim. From the pain you experience to the medical expenses incurred in treating it, you’ll be compensated by those at fault.
Burn injuries can be especially traumatic. Truly severe burns can be both disfiguring and debilitating. The scar tissue can require extensive skin grafts and plastic surgery to repair, and muscle and nerve damage might leave you permanently disabled.
Whether you’ve experienced lost companionship due to an altered physical appearance or new physical limitations, you should be fully compensated for how your burn injury has impacted your life for the worse.
Some personal injury claims actually involve illnesses rather than wounds. You may have experienced food poisoning due to a restaurant that wasn’t up to code, or you may have developed cancer thanks to a company that failed to fully test its product.
Whatever form your illness takes, you can hold the at-fault party responsible. The cost of your recovery and any lingering effects of the sickness shouldn’t be yours to bear uncompensated.
Some injuries are emotional or mental in nature rather than physical. Post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression are just a few of the emotional disorders you could experience because of an accident caused by someone else.
In many cases, emotional trauma accompanies a physical injury, making it doubly important to seek financial compensation with the help of an injury lawyer.
In all likelihood, your injury compensation will come from the at-fault party’s insurance company. This is both good and bad. It’s good in that insurance companies have the financial assets available to fully compensate you, but it’s bad in that insurers will do everything they can to get out of paying you.
Your Long Island injury attorney will make certain that the insurance company treats your claim with the respect it deserves. We’ll negotiate on your behalf and go to court if necessary. Whatever it takes to get maximum compensation—after all, there is no second place in litigation.
These are just a few of the damages you might be able to include in your injury claim:
Don’t let an insurance company get away with telling you what your claim is worth. Siler & Ingber, LLP can help you recover the full cost of your injury damages and losses.
