How We Will Identify the Liable Parties in Your Personal Injury Claim
Personal injury law requires that we establish liability in order to recover damages. Our legal team will meet the required criteria by proving the following arguments:
- Duty of Care: The defendant (at-fault party) owed you a duty to take reasonable care to protect you from harm or injury.
- Breach of Duty: The at-fault party violated this duty of care.
- Causation: The defendant’s breach of duty caused the accident that resulted in your injury.
- Damages: The accident caused you physical injury and yielded recoverable physical, emotional, and financial damages.
You Have Limited Time to Take Legal Action for Your Mineola Personal Injury
New York’s statute of limitations gives you a limited timeframe from the date of your accident in which to commence a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Other time limits apply to claims and litigation too. To avoid having these windows of opportunity close on you, you should start the process of taking legal action as soon as possible.
The earlier you hire an injury attorney, the more time they will have to build a winning case on your behalf. Your case also will benefit from prompt, rather than delayed, access to witnesses who have a clearer recollection of the events that led to your accident when they are fresh. The testimonies of even the most well-meaning witnesses will suffer from faded memories over time.
