Understanding Personal Injury Claims
In today’s complex world, personal injury takes many forms. But the results of serious injuries sustained in any type of accident caused by someone else’s negligent actions often mean your future is abruptly changed. Your injuries may make it impossible for you to return to work and live as you have been accustomed to. Physician treatments, medications, rehabilitative therapy and prosthetics will mean unforeseen medical expenses. The pain and suffering that accompany a traumatic loss of performing professional and recreational physical activities overshadow any joy you once experienced daily. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney can help ease the burden.
Martello & LaMagna, P.C., has over 20 years of trial experience in prosecuting personal injury cases. It is imperative that you know your rights, so it is necessary that you speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer at the very beginning of your claim, so vital steps are not missed that can possibly prejudice you in ensuring that you obtain justice in your case.
Where Do Most Personal Injury Accidents Occur?
You can be seriously injured by another person’s negligence in a variety of ways. In the form of:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Subway accidents, taxicab accidents, bus accidents
- Food poisoning
- School and day care accidents
- Construction accidents
- Nursing home negligence
- Slip-and-fall accidents on public sidewalks and buildings
- Slip-and-fall injuries on privately owned premises
- Lead paint poisoning and/or toxic mold exposure in buildings
- New York City subway or bus accidents
- Defective products sold to you causing injury
- Medical malpractice or birth injuries resulting from wrong advice or a procedure by a doctor
- Injuries sustained due to human rights violations or sexual, racial or gender discrimination at the workplace or elsewhere in society
Sustaining personal injury from any of these areas has a devastating effect on your life. As a result, you may suddenly face climbing medical bills, lost wages, loss of a 401(K) or pension rights, and personal physical and emotional disabilities. The injuries affect you as well as your loved ones and your family. Not only are you unable to go to work and earn the money that was necessary to pay for the household bills, but it may also mean not being able to get up and play with your children or grandchildren like you used to.
