Personal Injury Law and You

New Rochelle Personal Injury Lawyers

The law gives you the right to seek fair compensation for losses and damages that you sustain in an accident that was caused by someone else. From material and financial losses to personal injuries and emotional trauma, our experienced accident attorneys in New Rochelle, NY will adeptly handle your case so that you can get your life back on track after an accident.

Every case is unique, so understanding who was at fault for the accident and gathering proof are important parts of any personal injury case.

Consider the following examples.

  • For poisoning accidents such as overdosing, mislabeled medicines, unclear directions, or poor packaging, a medical caregiver or product manufacturer may be at fault;
  • For motor vehicle accidents such as car, truck, motorcycle, rideshare, and pedestrian accidents, vehicle owners or operators or maintenance or service teams may be at fault;
  • For nursing home accidents that often involve choking, slips, falls, heating/cooling illnesses, or physical and financial abuse, a facility, its administrator, or its staff may be at fault;
  • For construction site and workplace accidents such as slips and falls, object and material accidents, machine accidents, and chemical burns, a workplace or construction site owner or operator may be at fault;
  • Employers and business owners can be at fault for other types of premises liability cases that involve slips and falls, electrocutions, animal attacks, and other injuries from on-site hazards;
  • For medical malpractice injuries caused by misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, poor testing, testing errors, treatment mistakes, surgical errors, medical device issues, or poor caretaker training, a medical facility, members of the medical staff, or medical device manufacturers can be at fault.

Experienced New Rochelle Personal Injury Lawyers Will Gather Evidence and Quantify Your Losses

Even after the cause of your accident is determined and the at-fault party is identified, you cannot file a claim without evidence that establishes fault and quantifies your losses. We can use the following types of evidence to establish fault and the severity of your losses after an accident:

  • Medical reports and invoices (to prove treatment costs)
  • Wage and salary slips (to show lost income)
  • Maintenance logs (for machine and vehicle accidents)
  • Cell phone usage (to prove distraction in vehicle accidents)
  • Police reports
  • Eyewitness accounts of the accidents
  • Photos and videos of the accident scene

Taken together, this evidence and our vigorous pursuit of your case will help ensure that your claim is not outrightly denied by the insurer – which happens to many people even with valid claims – and that your claim is given due consideration.

We will also assist you by:

  • Identifying the insurers and/or insurance policies that can be used to secure compensation;
  • Representing you in negotiations with the insurer and court;
  • Keeping you up to date with every step of the filing process;
  • Ensuring you satisfactorily meet all legal and regulatory requirements for winning the compensation you deserve.

Depending on the type of accident and the severity of your injuries, the claim can take anywhere from a few months to several years.
