New York Accidents
Every accident injury in New York cannot be compensated from a simple insurance claim or out-of-court settlement. When injuries are serious and result in long-term or permanent disability, it is often necessary to pursue full compensation through accident litigation.
Types of serious injuries from accidents
The following are just a few examples of the types of injuries that are likely to require a jury decision through accident litigation in New York:
- Traumatic head and brain injuries: All too common in motorcycle and a variety of other accidents, injuries to the head and brain can have a devastating effect on your life. Damaging the control center for the entire body can cause blindness or other sensory problems, affect the operation of internal organs, and even cause limitations to movement—including potential paralysis. Victims often cannot continue to work, and their injuries can require special care for the rest of their lives.
- Neck and spinal injuries: The delicate neck and spine play a major role in the ability to move. Unfortunately, these injuries are often difficult or impossible to fully repair. All too often, victims experience limitations in the use of their arms and legs—many never walk again. Future employment possibilities are reduced or eliminated, and victims are no longer able to care for themselves or their families.
- Death: According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the country saw over 37,000 deaths in 2008 on the highways alone. Although no amount of money can compensate families for the loss of a loved one, wrongful death litigation can result in awards to help families toward a fresh start.
