Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Accident Victims Get The Compensation They Deserve
We receive many phone calls from people who sustained injuries in car accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents and many other type of accidents and continue to suffer pain and discomfort years later after the accident happened. They want our help to pursue a lawsuit to recover damages and compensation for their pain and suffering. However, what we have discovered is very so often is that people wait a very long time to contact us. Sometimes so long that the statute of limitations has run or very close to running out, leaving us powerless or with almost no time to pursue the case. Unfortunately once the statute of limitation has run, even the most experienced personal injury attorney in New York City is powerless to help.
Why do People fail To Make a Claim?
There are many reasons why people fail to make a claim and pursue a lawsuit. Sometimes people believe that the pain caused by the accident related injuries is temporary and will go away in a short period of time. That may be true, however, having a medical professional perform a thorough examination is probably a smarter idea rather than to self-diagnose. Another common reason is, the injured feel that if they were to pursue a lawsuit they would end up hurting their friends or family members who are the insured. This is further from the truth, and the only people they are hurting are themselves.
Many times they fail to seek medical attention, which is crucial to their recovery. In addition, the injured parties’ medical costs could be covered by the insurance company of the insured. As an example, medical coverage for injuries caused by an auto accident in New York is mandatory under the New York State No-Fault Law. This also applies to a pedestrian accident in New York.
