There are many kinds of accident claims in New York City, but the most common are car accidents. The most common fatal accidents are motor vehicle accidents, with 292 deaths happening per year. There also are roughly 6,200 hospitalizations for car accidents in the city annually.
While motor vehicle accidents are most common, there are many other personal injury claims in Queens annually, such as:
If you are injured in a car accident in Queens that someone else caused, your attorney must prove the other driver was liable. Next, the attorney must prove you have damages.
Let’s say a driver runs a stop sign and rear-ends your vehicle. It would appear that the driver is responsible for the crash. However, you must show that you suffered damages. If you do not show any signs of injury, there may be no valid reason for a claim or lawsuit. This is why it is essential to be checked out by a doctor following the accident. You might ‘feel fine,’ but injuries can take days to manifest. Your Queens/Bronx personal injury attorney will ensure you see a doctor who documents your accident-related injuries.
However, if it was a one-vehicle crash, there may not be anyone liable other than you. Sometimes there could be a hazardous road condition that caused the accident.
There are two kinds of damages in accidents: economic damages and non-economic damages. Monetary damages refer to bills for medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, and lost earnings. It is usually easy to prove these expenses by proving your medical costs and lost wages. Your attorney will collect proof of these expenses before negotiating with the insurance company.
But what about pain and suffering? For example, the pain from a back injury could be substantial and be valued far more than your medical bills and lost earnings. The good news is your Queens personal injury attorney is experienced in valuing pain and suffering in New York accidents.
Your attorney will likely refer to recent judgments and settlements with related car accidents in Queens. These cases could be a starting point for pain and suffering settlement negotiations. In addition, many accident injuries are similar to each other. So, your lawyer can review databases of similar accidents to get a baseline for a possible pain and suffering settlement.
