When Can An Ossining Resident File A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Each day, men and women in Westchester County are involved in accidents that will forever change their lives. As an accident victim, you suddenly have to deal with physical, mental, and emotional pain and to make matters worse, often a financial strain. It may seem like you will never be able to live life as you once did but you do have legal rights.
A personal injury lawsuit can be filed by a victim when someone else’s negligence resulted in the accident which caused them harm. For example, if a drunk driver hits another vehicle and three people inside are injured, those three may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the drunk driver.
It may not always be obvious that negligence has occurred – for example, did you know that the manufacturers and designers of defective tools can also be held liable for any injuries that the defect causes? This is why it’s always a good idea to have your case reviewed by an attorney.
If you suspect that you may be owed compensation for your injuries, contact the experienced attorneys of Banville Law today. Our legal team offers free case reviews and will go over all of your legal options with you.
Banville Law: Recovering Financial Compensation in Personal Injury Lawsuits
Injured Workers Can Depend On Our Work Injury Attorneys
Work may not be your favorite place to be but it is supposed to be a safe place. Despite this fact, many Ossining residents leave for work each day only to return home with serious injuries that will cost them thousands of dollars to treat and prevent them from returning to their job.
Workers’ compensation insurance may help to pay for medical expenses and perhaps even a small fraction of lost wages, but ultimately, it’s simply not enough for the average employee. However, a work injury lawsuit, filed against the party whose negligence resulted in the injury can provide full compensation for both past and future:

Our Lawyers Can Help With Your Workers’ Comp Claim
Workers’ compensation should be simple. Injured workers should be able to apply for the benefits they need and they should be offered coverage. Unfortunately, insurance companies understand that the more complicated a process is, the less likely an applicant is to follow through with their claim, saving the company money.
It might seem excessive to speak with an attorney for an insurance claim but without the help of an experienced attorney who can catch any mistakes made on the initial claim and speak with the insurance company on your behalf, a claim may be denied. An appeal can be filed but frequently, the appeal will need to go before a judge. In New York, the court backlog is so long that many workers’ comp appeals take more than two years to reach a courtroom.
Banville Law has helped many injured workers with both an initial claim and an appeal. Don’t hesitate to call our legal team today to get the process of recovering compensation started.
You May Be Owed Significant Compensation After An Auto Accident In Westchester County
An auto accident can literally turn your world upside down. One minute you’re on your way to your destination and the next, you’re in physical pain and trying to figure out how you’ll be able to function in the future. Auto insurance is supposed to help you recover financially after an accident, but did you know that the state required minimum coverage in New York is typically not enough to cover the medical treatments required by an accident victim?
Car, bus, and truck accident lawsuits help accident victims recover full compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, physical pain, and emotional trauma. In instances where the victim dies, their loved ones may be able to pursue justice on their behalf. Eligible family members typically include the parents, children, and spouses of the deceased, however, other dependants may also be able to file.
The total amount that can be obtained through a car accident lawsuit varies between plaintiffs since no two plaintiffs experience the same losses.
Let Banville Law’s auto accident lawyers review your case. Then, together, we can fight aggressively for the compensation that can help you rebuild your life.

Let Our Lawyers Help You Rebuild Your Life After A Construction Accident
