Personal injury claim form

If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may have huge medical bills and other expenses due to your time off from work. You can recover these expenses through a personal injury lawsuit. Although it is true that money cannot restore your health, compensation can help to make your life whole again.

Victims of personal injury accidents in New York can seek compensation for two types of damages under the personal injury awards: special and general. Here is a brief description of the two damages:

Special damages: Special damages are those types of damages where victims can seek reimbursement for medical bills, costs of replacing damaged properties, lost wages and diminished lifetime earning capacity caused by the injuries. Special damages are easy to calculate and simple to prove because of the bills from doctors and vehicle repair shops.

General damages: General damages do not carry an objective monetary value. Victims can seek compensation for the pain and suffering they have endured, any physical disfigurement they have suffered and their reduced quality of life. It is important to note that general damages may differ according to the severity of injuries.

If you have been injured in an accident, seeking the help of a personal injury lawyer can make a huge difference in how much you recover. On many occasions, insurers have not compensated victims the full amount they deserve for their injuries. A skilled personal injury lawyer can advocate for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Proving Fault in a Personal Injury Case

Proving who is at fault is at the root of winning a personal injury case. You must prove that another person is responsible for your injury or damages and provide the necessary documents and evidence to support your claim so that you can receive the compensation that you deserve. If you are injured due to the negligence of another person, proving who is at fault may not be easy. However, an experienced personal injury lawyer will have the knowledge and experience to help you receive your rightful compensation.

Determining Negligence in a Personal Injury Case

If you have been hurt in an accident, determining who is at fault is crucial in filing a personal injury claim. The accident may be caused by a person who failed to perform, execute or uphold his or her duty. The court will decide which individual or party acted negligently and caused the accident. If you are injured as a direct result of the negligence of another person or party, they are considered at-fault for your personal injury and are responsible for compensating you for the injuries and damages.

Another important component of a personal injury claim is providing proof of the damages. You should bring proof of any financial or other losses you suffered because of the accident. These losses may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Impairment or decreased quality of life
  • Lost wages
  • Damage to property
  • Psychological or emotional impairment

Were you partly responsible for the accident?

Even if you were partly responsible for the accident you were injured in, New York State’s comparative negligence clause allows you to claim compensation for your injuries and damages from the other party. The amount you receive will be calculated according to what percentage of the negligence you and the other person or party were responsible for in the accident.

When More than One Party is at Fault in the Accident

In cases where more than one party is at fault for the accident, you may be required to notify all the parties involved in the accident. However, you can bring a personal injury claim against only one negligent party depending on the evidence and information you gather.

Handling a personal injury case can be more complicated than you might anticipate. The wisest course of action is to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you through the legal process and ensure that you receive your rightful compensation.
