How Much is My Accident Case Worth?

The damages you’re entitled to will depend on the circumstances of the accident, your level of fault, the severity of your injuries, and other variables.

In many cases, an accident victim can recover the following types of damages for most types of personal injury accidents, with the exception of auto accidents:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Vehicle damage
  • Property damage
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Your personal injury lawyer will investigate the accident and work with experts to determine the value of your case and which damages you must pursue.

Non-Economic Damages for New York Motor Vehicle Collisions

New York is a no-fault state. This means the accident victim must file a claim with their own insurer. The accident victim will be unable to recover compensation for non-economic losses unless they sustained a serious injury and file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver.

Non-economic damages can include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In other areas of personal injury law, accident victims can recover both economic and non-economic damages.

What is Considered a Serious Injury Under New York Law?

Serious injuries are classified as injuries that prevent the accident victim from performing their normal daily activities for a period of three months.

These injuries can include:

  • Broken bones/bone fractures
  • Loss of organ
  • Loss of limb
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burns

And other injuries that severely impact the affected person’s ability to carry out usual tasks.

How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?

If you were involved in an accident that was caused by the negligent actions of another person, and that accident resulted in damages, such as injuries, lost wages, or property damage, you may be entitled to compensation.

For a successful personal injury lawsuit, you must prove that:

  • The other party owed you a duty of care
  • The other party breached their duty of care
  • The breach of duty resulted in physical, emotional, or financial injuries
  • The other party’s actions were responsible for your injuries

When you work with an experienced personal injury lawyer at Friedland & Associates, our legal team can assess your claim and determine if you have a valid case.

Is There a Fee if I Don’t Win My Case?

No. At Friedland & Associates, our attorneys believe that every accident victim deserves experienced, knowledgeable legal representation. When you hire us, you will pay no upfront costs. Our legal team works on a contingency fee basis. That means, whether or not you pay legal fees is contingent upon whether your case is won. If you do not win, you will pay nothing. Working on a contingency fee basis allows everyone, regardless of income, to obtain legal representation as soon as possible following an accident. Doing so can significantly increase an accident victim’s chances of a successful outcome.
