How We Determine Negligence in an Injury Claim
To establish that the at-fault party is liable for your damages, your Baldwin personal injury lawyer will need to prove the following four arguments to be true:
- Duty of Care – The defendant owed you a duty of care to keep you from injury.
- Breach of Duty – The defendant violated this duty of care.
- Causation – The defendant’s breach of duty caused the incident that resulted in your injury.
- Damages – You sustained physical, mental, and/or emotional injury with recoverable damages.
New York Law Imposes a Deadline for Filing Legal Actions for Your Injury
New York’s statute of limitations gives you only a limited amount of time from the date of your incident in which to take legal action against the at-fault party. Consider hiring your lawyer soon to make the most of the time you have.
Your case will benefit from an early start, as your lawyer will have more time to construct a compelling case, based on better preserved evidence (for example, fresh evidence from the scene of the incident, surveillance videos that have not been recorded over, and witnesses’ memories that are still clear).
