Unfortunately, serious injuries can be sustained as a result of many different types of accidents. Whether such an injury is a result of a car accident; slipping or tripping and falling to the ground, medical malpractice, a bicycle accident or any other incident, you may have a right to compensation.
If you have suffered a very serious injury in any type of these accidents, which are not your fault, you should seek advice from an experienced lawyer who has handled serious accident cases on a regular, everyday basis. Often when someone is seriously injured though no fault of their own, insurance companies are reluctant to settle any claim or lawsuit that is started because of the amount of compensation your lawyer believes is fair and adequate. And if the insurance company is unwilling to settle for a reasonable amount, you need lawyers who have actually gone to trial to fight for their client’s rights in the past to obtain what is fair for your serous injury. If the insurance company knows that your lawyer is not afraid to stand up to it by taking your case to trial, a more generous settlement is usually the result.
Even if the accident that resulted in your serious injury is partially your fault, you may still be entitled to substantial compensation. The law in New York allows for an injured person to recover for their injuries, especially serious injuries, in many circumstances. In such cases it is even more important that you consult with and retain an experienced lawyer who is not reluctant to push the insurance company to the limit and go to trial on your case if that is advisable or necessary.
