Prompt Legal Action Benefits Your Case
There’s a host of legal deadlines surrounding your case. The statute of limitations is the most important one. This law outlines how long you have to file your lawsuit. Depending on the facts of your case, one or more of the following deadlines could apply to you:
- CVP § 214 sets the statute of limitations for most injury cases at three years, starting from the date of the incident.
- EPTL § 5-4.1 grants you two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, beginning from the date of your loved one’s passing.
- CVP § 214-A applies to medical malpractice cases. You generally have two years and six months from the date of the error to file a lawsuit. However, this deadline also depends on when you “discovered” your injuries.
Your injury lawyer in Hicksville can assess your case to determine what deadlines apply to you.
We Will Seek These Losses Following Your Hickville Accident
The value of your case depends on the severity of your injuries, the nature of your accident, and your quality of life. We will use billing statements, receipts, and invoices to learn about your economic damages. We will assess your mobility and mental health to evaluate your non-economic damages.
Examples of compensable losses in your case may comprise:
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Lost income, tips, commissions, and performances
- Lost bonuses and employee benefits
- Pain and suffering
- Assistive devices, like wheelchairs and crutches
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We Will Consider the Following Factors when Calculating Your Case’s Value
Many times, prospective clients will call and ask about the values of their cases. Each time, we say the same thing: “We can’t estimate the value of your case without first reviewing your situation.”
We will consider the following elements when exploring the value of your case:
- Your mobility
- Your missed time from work and your ability to work
- The cost of your economic losses, such as your medical bills and lost income
- The medical treatment you required
- Your prognosis and diagnosis
- Your mental health
The insurer may have already calculated the value of your case. Yet, keep in mind that the insurer’s goal is to sell policies and limit claims. So, its assessment may not be accurate. Rest assured that we will also calculate your case’s value so that we can fight for a fair settlement offer.
Our Previous Case Results Attest to Our Experience and Commitment
When we say that we’re committed to your case’s outcome, you don’t have to take our word for it. We’ve secured results that speak for themselves. Some of our previous outcomes include:
- We recovered $1 million for our client who suffered harm in a rear-end accident. The defense attorneys refused to pay anything, arguing that our client wasn’t seriously injured – despite them needed multiple surgeries to recover. We took a hard stance and settled the case.
- We secured $1 million for a motorcycle who required femur surgery after another motorist cut in front of them.
- We won $1.2 million for our client’s child who suffered a fractured skull in a two-car collision.
