How Much Is My Long Island
Personal Injury Claim Worth?

Victims of personal injury accidents can pursue damages from the party or parties whose negligence caused their injuries. If another person’s negligence has injured you, you may be wondering what your case’s value is worth. Discussing your case with an experienced attorney is the best way to understand your case’s value. Generally, the more severely injured the plaintiff has become, the higher the case’s value. There are two main categories of damages available in personal injury lawsuits.

Economic damages are easily quantifiable damages, such as current and future medical expenses, property damage, lost income, loss of earning capacity, and more. You can also pursue compensation for your non-economic damages, including the pain and suffering you’ve endured from your injuries.

Additionally, a plaintiff’s damages will be reduced by their percentage of fault for the accident under New York pure comparative negligence rule. For example, suppose a plaintiff wasn’t wearing a seatbelt when a drunk driver collided with his or her vehicle. The jury may find the victim 20% at fault for his or her injuries. As a result, the plaintiff’s damages will be reduced by 20%. Working with an attorney can help you build a case against the plaintiff while lowering your liability.

Time Limits For Filing Personal Injury Lawsuits

Every state has a statute of limitations that limits the amount of time personal injury victims have to file a claim for damages. In New York, plaintiffs must bring a lawsuit within three years of the incident that caused their injuries. If your loved one died in a personal injury accident, you only have two years to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. There are a few exceptions to this general rule, but reaching out to an attorney as soon as possible is the best course of action. Your attorney will have time to investigate, gather evidence, conduct depositions, and build the best legal strategy possible.
