Suffering from a back injury can be extremely disruptive to your life, and the pain can be absolutely debilitating. Back injuries can include things like ligament tears, herniated or compressed disks, and more. In some cases, back injuries may be recoverable from either physical therapy or surgery, and in other cases, they may require many different procedures and still not achieve the results that you are hoping for. Regardless, the time and money required to undergo these procedures and therapy sessions can add up quickly, and cause a serious impact on your life. With the right personal injury attorney at your side, you can seek compensation for these expenses and more.
If you have suffered from a back injury and you believe that the injury was caused by another party and their negligence, malpractice, or malice, contact us as soon as possible to learn more about your rights as a victim. There are many different situations where you can suffer back injuries, and many of these situations may have been avoidable if the other party had upheld their responsibility to keep you safe. If you were injured as a result of this failure, we will work to seek compensation for the economic impacts on your life, as well as the non-economic impacts such as the pain you have endured throughout this process.
Contact us now for a free initial consultation, where you will be able to discuss your situation with an experienced attorney and learn more about your legal options. Read more below about how back injuries are handled in the New York civil court system, and to get a better idea of whether or not your injuries may qualify for compensation.
Not all back injuries entitle the victim to financial compensation, but if your situation qualifies, you may be able to pursue repayment from the responsible party. There are many different ways that an injury can fall under tort law in New York, and it is our first priority to determine whether or not your experience is appropriate for these actions. Below are some situations that may qualify:
Being hit by a drunk driver is extremely frustrating and upsetting because the injuries that you sustain are the result of someone’s absolutely reckless and irresponsible behavior. Even if the other driver is charged and convicted of DUI, this does not entitle you to any financial assistance above the available insurance payouts.
Instead of dealing directly with an insurance company, contact us and let us handle all negotiations. If we are unable to reach a settlement agreement outside of court, we will seek the money you deserve through a full civil lawsuit.
Premise liabilities are situations where the party responsible for keeping an area safe for visitors fails at this duty, and you are injured as a result. This can happen on private property, semi-private property such as shopping malls, government property, or public areas such as walkways or parks. The central issue here is proving that the party responsible for the upkeep failed in their reasonable expectation of keeping the area safe, meaning that they either willingly ignored a hazard, did not adequately warn visitors of the hazard or repair it as soon as possible.
There are many different factors that go into determining the dollar amount that we will seek in your back injury claim, and no two cases are alike. We will determine all of the different impacts that your injuries have had on your life, and either calculate the total dollar amount or determine another way to apply a dollar value to non-economic factors, such as with a multiplier.
It is important that you work with an experienced personal injury attorney throughout this process, to ensure that you consider each issue and get the money that you rightfully deserve for your suffering.
Schedule your free initial consultation as soon as possible, and speak with a New York City personal injury attorney about your back injuries now.
