Recoverable Damages in Your New York City Personal Injury Accident Case
Personal injury cases are designed to have two primary purposes:
- To hold negligent parties accountable for their careless or reckless actions.
- To ensure the victims receive compensation for their expenses and losses, so they do not have to cover the costs and bear the brunt of the accident they did not cause.
Our attorneys keep these purposes in mind when we take legal action on behalf of our clients. We identify the liable party and how their actions affected our client. In addition to the purposes stated above, it is our belief that holding reckless people accountable is the best way to impress upon them, and teach others by example, not to conduct themselves in that manner in the future.
We also collect documentation and evidence to prove your economic losses and expenses and your noneconomic damages. This allows us to pursue many types of damages on your behalf, including:
- Medical treatment and care
- Other care costs related to your injuries
- Lost wages and benefits and diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Diminished life enjoyment
We also take on wrongful death cases. If your loved one was a tourist involved in an accident in New York City and passed away, we offer you our sincere condolences. We are here to offer support and legal representation. We are dedicated to winning the compensation you need and the justice your departed loved one deserves.
