Determine the Value of Your Recoverable Damages
When we assess your recoverable damages, we include the current and ongoing costs of vision and hearing aids and assistive devices. Because your need for these medical devices could continue throughout your lifetime, we assess their current and future value when assessing your injuries.
In addition, you are entitled to current and future medical bills to treat your injuries. Additionally, we fight for the following recoverable damages:
- Current and future lost wages
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Diminished earning capacity
- Ongoing physical disability
- Ongoing physical disfigurement
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
We calculate the damages we request for you so that we are completely prepared when potential settlement negotiations get started. We make sure you do not inadvertently accept a settlement offer that is speedy but flawed because a fast offer might not take your range of damages into account. We also protect your rights by taking action on your claim for compensation within the allotted time for filing.
Define the Relevant Statute of Limitations
If the circumstances of your case call for the filing of a lawsuit, we will make sure one is filed in compliance with the statute of limitations. The personal injury statute of limitations in New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 determines how long you have to file for most cases . If medical malpractice led to your injuries or to injuries your child sustained, the medical malpractice statute of limitations in New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214-A determines the time you have to file. Other statutes of limitations and time deadlines may apply to your case and it would be our privilege to review these with you after we have had an opportunity to discuss the particulars of your accident.
In addition to ensuring the statute of limitations does not expire, acting before the filing deadline passes lets us investigate and interview witnesses while memories are fresh. We will also canvass the area for photos and video footage.
