So what exactly is a personal injury accident? To be honest, there are numerous forms of accident that fall under the category of personal injury law. Here are a few examples, but note that we may accept cases involving a variety of additional factors and circumstances; this is not an exhaustive list of our practice areas.
What connects these disparate practice areas? On the surface, bus accidents and slip and falls seem very different, other than the fact that, in either accident, someone suffers a personal injury. But in a legal context, they are linked to each other through the concept of negligence. Negligence lies at the heart of nearly every personal injury claim. It's the key legal doctrine on which most civil lawsuits are based.
In personal injury law, negligence occurs when someone fails to act the way that a reasonable person would in order to keep those around them safe. The doctrine of negligence recognizes that many of us owe other people a duty of care. As just one example, drivers owe each other a duty of care when we're out on the road, because we're all engaged in a dangerous activity. We owe it to one another, both ethically and legally, to obey the rules of the road, cut down on distractions in the cockpit and drive carefully whenever possible.
Negligence is what happens when someone violates this duty, breaching the duty of care and causing harm to someone else. If someone who has been drinking for six hours and is heavily intoxicated gets behind the wheel, they are acting negligently, because they have violated the duty of care that we should all be in control of our actions when driving. If, while driving drunk, they hit another car and cause injuries to those inside, they can be held legally responsible for the losses their actions have caused.
If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver or defective vehicle, our experienced team of attorneys can help.
It's no secret that the injuries sustained by car accident victims can be extensive. Common injuries include spinal damage, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, burns, and deep lacerations - all of which can require expensive medical care. Most drivers know that if they get hurt, their car insurance company will pay for some of the medical bills, but few realize how little of those bills are typically covered. Once a policy reaches its limits, the insurance company stops paying and when a victim is seriously injured, that can happen on just the first visit to the hospital.
Our experienced team of lawyers understands how stressful and upsetting this time is. Not only are you struggling to heal physically but now you are struggling to stay afloat financially. You're probably also wondering if there is any way you can obtain compensation from the party whose negligence caused you harm. There is. Filing a personal injury lawsuit may be the answer.
Car accident lawsuits can provide the plaintiff with full compensation, not just for their medical bills, but also for their lost wages, physical pain and suffering, and emotional trauma. However, obtaining compensation is difficult without the help of an attorney. Our law firm has helped hundreds of auto accident victims by handling all of the legal paperwork, speaking with the insurance companies, collecting evidence, and then representing the client in court. We prepare our clients from the very beginning and keep the lines of communication open so that each client knows exactly where their case is throughout the entire process.
If you or a loved one are one of the thousands of people hurt by medical malpractice each year, our team of experienced lawyers can help.
Doctors, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, and other medical professionals are all capable of making mistakes that can cause serious harm to a patient. When this happens, the patient typically has to undergo medical treatments they otherwise wouldn't have needed and it can literally put their life on the line. But without the help of an attorney, those patients are usually left to handle the aftermath on their own.
Our legal team is prepared to hold negligent medical professionals responsible. We can help you obtain the compensation that you need to pay for medical bills, cover lost wages, and can even obtain additional compensation for emotional and physical suffering. We know that this monetary relief won't change the past but it can help make the future a little easier.
Were you hurt while at work? It doesn't matter what industry you work in, nearly every employer in New York is required to have workers' compensation insurance for their employees. The problem is that insurance companies don't actually want to pay claims. Instead, they want to keep the money for their company, and so they often train their adjusters to deny claims for even the simplest mistake made on a claim form.
Our legal team is completely familiar with both the process of filing a claim and also with the tricks that the insurance companies try to deny claims with. We can ensure that the initial claim is filed properly and we can speak with the insurance company on your behalf. In addition to this, we can determine if you are eligible for a personal injury lawsuit.
Workers who have filed for workers' compensation are not allowed to file a lawsuit against their employer. However, if another person or party contributed to the accident that caused you harm, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against these additional defendants in order to obtain compensation for the losses that workers' comp doesn't cover.
Did you know that the owners and managers of a property are legally responsible for doing everything in their power to make sure the property is safe? This means that they are required to check the property regularly for hazards and if any are found, fix them in a timely manner.
Yet every year, thousands are hurt in slip and fall accidents caused by:
The injuries caused by a slip and fall accident can be shockingly serious and can cost thousands in medical expenses and may prevent the victim from returning to work. For many, the only way to pay for those losses is to file a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner or manager who failed to keep visitors safe. Our lawyers can help file this lawsuit and will do everything in their power to make sure our client gets the compensation they need.
Home fires can be devastating incidents. Entire livelihoods are destroyed forcing victims to start over from scratch. Such is the case when families lose all of their possessions in a fire. Yet these tragic events can become even worse when they result in severe burn injuries.
Most fire and burn injuries require extensive medical care for patients to make full recoveries. In many instances, even with the highest-quality medical attention, victims may never return to their "old selves." Unfortunately, most families who suffer burn injuries simply don't have the financial means to seek the best quality of healthcare, if they are able to seek any healthcare at all.
If negligence is determined to have been the cause of a house or apartment fire, then victims and their loved ones can seek damages through a burn injury lawsuit. Banville Law's experienced fire injury lawyers in Mt. Vernon, NY, know what it takes to win these cases and achieve full compensation on behalf of their clients. Contact us today for a free burn injury case review and learn more about your potential for compensation after a home fire through a lawsuit or workers' comp claim.
Without construction workers, our world would be very dull. These hard-working men and women provide us with shelter, electricity, running water, and beautiful structures, but their work is dangerous. Scaffolding accidents, electrocutions, defective products, falling objects, heavy machinery accidents, and slip and fall accidents all impact the health and wellbeing of construction victims on a regular basis.
Many construction accident victims sustain painful physical injuries, only to find their careers ended as well. Severe injuries can put you out of work, struggling to handle rising medical expenses. In many cases, these injuries could have been prevented, if only negligence was not committed.
In the past, we've helped clients obtain compensation not just through workers' comp but also through a construction accident lawsuit filed against a contractor, property owner, or another party whose negligence resulted in the accident which ultimately caused them harm. Contact us today to learn more.
