If you’re suffering the effects of a serious injury due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation. Find out how to handle your claim by working with a Long Island serious injury lawyer.

If you’ve been injured in an accident that has resulted in a catastrophic injury, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury claim.

Recovering the full compensation you are owed isn’t an easy process, however. The last thing you need to worry about after getting hurt is filing paperwork and fighting with an insurance company.

After the extreme trauma you’ve endured, you may be wondering how to proceed with your claim. For guidance on your injury claim, contact a Long Island serious injury lawyer at Siler & Ingber, LLP. Your lawyer will listen to your story, answer all your questions, and ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve.

Types of Serious Injury Cases

Serious injuries result from a variety of sources. Maybe you’re suffering from a dangerous drug interaction or were disfigured in a dog attack. Maybe you were even hurt while at a construction site. In the end, if someone else was negligent, you can hold them accountable. While there is a statute of limitations for filing an injury claim in New York—within three years—your serious injury lawyer will know exactly what to do and how to ensure that everything is handled efficiently and on time. The following list provides information on just a few of the most common types of serious injury claims:
  • Medical Malpractice – Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed by a doctor or other licensed medical professional. Substandard medical care and negligence can provide grounds to seek compensation.
  • Assault or Battery – When someone else’s aggressive conduct causes you harm directly, the person should be held liable for the damages.
  • Product Liability – Consumer products include all sorts of goods, from children’s toys to prescription drugs to electronics. Companies have a duty to protect consumers from potential hazards.
  • Work-Related Accidents – When a third party or gross negligence were involved in causing your work injury, you might be able to seek more than just workers comp.
  • Vehicle Accidents – If you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to file an injury claim.
  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents – Whether you fell or tripped in a grocery store or a neighbor’s home, the property owner could be at fault if an unaddressed hazard was involved.
