Common Accidents that Our Knowledgeable Accident Attorneys in Staten Island, NY Can Handle For You

Richmond County Personal Injury Lawyers

Any accident – even if minor – can be shocking, and the costs associated with accidents such as motor vehicle collisions and workplace slips and falls can easily run into thousands of dollars per case. You should not have to suffer these losses and pay out of pocket – especially if the accident you were involved in was caused by the recklessness, negligence, or incompetence of someone who owed you a duty of care.

Depending on the setting, the duty of care can take different forms. Employers owe their workers a duty of providing a safe work environment. Doctors and medical caregivers should have the requisite training, knowledge, and skills needed to treat their patients. Road users must use the road and operate their vehicles with the safety and well-being of other road users in mind. A failure to do so by any of these parties may be tantamount to a breach of the duty of care.

Our dedicated Richmond County personal injury lawyers can help you with a wide range of accidents and personal injury cases, including:

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), slips and falls,  electrocutions, being struck by objects, and being caught in or in-between objects or materials are the four leading causes of workplace fatalities in the United States. Similar accidents can occur elsewhere as well, however, and our team can help you file a claim for the losses and damages you suffer in any accident of any kind.

Compensable Losses and Damages Commonly Recovered in Personal Injury Cases

From serious Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs) to nerve, muscle, and tendon/ligament injuries and cuts, lacerations, bruises, and abrasions, you can suffer a wide range of physical injuries and losses in an accident. Broken, fractured, or crushed bones and eye, ear, or dental injuries can cause pain and inhibit your ability to work for months or even years, as can amputations and disfigurement as well as varying degrees of paralysis and incapacitation.

Our goal is to fully and fairly compensate you for all accident-related losses and damages, which can include:

  • Lost income or lower earning potential
  • Vehicle and/or property damage and repair costs
  • Caretaker or home service payments
  • Medical treatment expenses
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional trauma
  • Funeral, burial, or cremation expenses

Your demand for compensation should include the economic and non-economic damages you suffered because of the accident. You must accurately assess them and gather the evidence needed to support your claim before submitting it. Our Richmond County personal injury lawyers have the legal knowledge and hands-on experience needed to do that for you, and we will also employ the services of subject-matter experts to defend your claims so that you maximize your chances of winning the settlement or compensation payout you are entitled to by law.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases in Staten Island, NY

Who is at fault and liable for compensating me, and can I sue for damages?

The at-fault party depends on the context and case specifics of your accident. Depending on how your accident was caused and where it occurred, you may be able to hold your employer, a maintenance or service company, a construction site owner or operator, a vehicle driver or owner, a government office or municipality, a product manufacturer, a doctor, nurse, or hospital, or a business or premises owner or operator at fault and liable for damages. Identifying the correct party requires an investigation of the case, so call us today so our Richmond County personal injury lawyers can review the facts and determine the best path forward for you.

What kinds of evidence do I need?

You must identify the at-fault party responsible for your accident and then gather evidence to prove their guilt as well as the extent and severity of your losses and damages. After that, you can submit a claim to the insurer of the at-fault party. The kinds of evidence you will need includes photos, videos, and eyewitness testimony regarding the accident, as well as police reports, medical treatment reports, and medical test results, as available and applicable. Other forms of evidence may also apply to different accident cases. These include, for example, truck driver driving logs to establish drowsy driving, as well as vehicle or equipment maintenance logs to establish inadequate servicing. Workplace safety compliance reports can also be used to prove workplace hazards that lead to occupational and workplace injuries.
