Proficient and Capable Accident Attorneys in Queens, NY Adeptly Manage Your Personal Injury and Legal Needs

Queens County Personal Injury Lawyers

Accidents are alarmingly common, and thousands of accidents occur every day in hospitals, schools, nursing homes, workplaces, public spaces, roads, and sidewalks across the country. You can slip and fall at work or in a parking lot, be attacked by a dog in a public space, have a car accident, or sustain injuries caused by machines or faulty products with little to no notice. The results of these accidents, however, can last a lifetime or may take you months or years to fully recover from them.

Accidents can also be fatal; the CDC reports that over 200,000 people were killed in accidents in the United States in 2020, with many of these accidents involving falls from a height, electrocution, suffocation, motor vehicle collisions, and construction site and workplace accidents.

Our experienced Queens County personal injury lawyers can help you irrespective of the nature or extent of your injuries. This includes professional legal representation and assistance for accidents such as:

  • Slips and falls, which are common at homes, workplaces, on the road and sidewalk, and in nursing homes and eldercare facilities;
  • Vehicle accidents, especially considering the facts that everyone is either a driver or a pedestrian at some point and that there are countless trucks, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles on our roadways at any given time;
  • Workplace accidents involving machines, materials, electrical power, objects, and hazardous materials, and workers’ compensation claims are typically included herein;
  • Nursing home accidents such as slips and falls, choking, infections, bedsores, dehydration, and malnutrition;
  • Medical malpractice arising from doctor inexperience, surgical errors, reporting errors, inaccurate testing, and drug dosage or diagnosis errors.

No one can be completely safe from every type of accident 100% of the time. However, you can limit your financial losses after suffering an accident by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party responsible for the accident by speaking with our accident attorneys in Queens, NY.

Compensable Damages Our Accomplished Queens County Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You Pursue

As long as you can connect a given set of losses or damages to your accident, you can typically include those losses and damages in your claim. All you need to do is show how the accident was caused and demonstrate that the accident led to quantifiable losses or damages on your part. We will handle this part of the case for you by gathering the evidence needed and establishing a connection between the accident, your losses, the causes of the accident, and any at-fault parties who may be involved.

Some of the compensable damages you can include in your claim include:

  • Medical treatment and care costs, which include treatment expenses, rehabilitation, therapy, medicines, testing fees, assistive device overheads, and doctor’s visits;
  • Lost income from an inability to work or an inability to earn as much as you used to before your accident due to accident-related disabilities or injuries;
  • Costs associated with vehicle and/or property damage;
  • Pain, suffering, mental trauma, and emotional anguish;
  • Wrongful death costs and expenses, including the loss of consortium of a loved one and funeral, burial, and/or cremation expenses.

These expenses can easily run into tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars per case, so do not leave anything to chance and contact the compassionate team of Queens County personal injury lawyers at Marvin A. Cooper, P.C. today for legal assistance with your case.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases in Queens, NY

How do I know who was responsible for my accident or liable for compensating me?

In some cases, identifying the at-fault party is straightforward, such as if someone makes an obvious driving error that results in an accident or drives under the influence. In other cases, however, things can get a little tricky, such as when a question of the duty of care arises. For example, employers owe their employees a duty of providing a safe workplace, drivers owe other road users a duty of driving safely and responsibly, and nursing home staff owe home residents a duty of delivering the care and treatment they need. If a breach of the duty of care occurs, we will work to demonstrate how it occurred and who was at fault.
Depending on your specific case, the at-fault party can potentially be a negligent driver, machine or road service or maintenance personnel, a doctor, nurse, nursing home staff, or another caregiver, an employer, a business or property owner or operator, or even a product manufacturer.

How will the value of my claim or a settlement figure be determined?

First, we will identify the at-fault party. Next, we will quantify your losses by adding your economic and non-economic damages. These include everything from lost income and medical treatment expenses to compensation for pain, suffering, and the loss of loved ones, as applicable. We will then determine the insurance policies and coverages that apply to your injuries and losses so that we can file a claim for adequate compensation using evidence-based proof of what you lost to make you at least as well off as you were before the accident.
Quantifying damages, identifying insurance policies and at-fault parties, and satisfactorily completing all of the legal and procedural formalities of filing a claim and collecting evidence can be physically, emotionally, and financially straining on anyone, especially someone who was involved in or had a loved on who was involved in an accident. This is why we urge you to contact our accident attorneys in Queens, NY for assistance. Our Queens County personal injury lawyers have the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to guide you through every step of the claims process.
