Common Questions in Bronx Personal Injury Claims
How long will I have to file my claim?
You’ll have three years from the date of the accident or injury diagnosis to file your claim. If you don’t act in time, your claim could be dismissed.
Fortunately, that time limit can help you. You need evidence to prove they injured you, and some evidence may decay or be lost over time. Acting now can preserve that proof of negligence.
However, it can be tough to act, too. Speak to your Bronx lawyer about your timeline and when you can get started.
What if my child was injured?
Unfortunately, we can’t always protect our children from serious injuries. Accidents happen, but when they could have been prevented had it not been for the careless actions of another, you deserve restitution for the suffering. But, if your child is a minor, so they can’t file for themselves.
Speak to a personal injury lawyer about acting on your child’s behalf. You may be able to represent them in court with the help of a lawyer so they can get the compensation they need to recover. This money may be set aside for them until they’re an adult, or it can be awarded to the parents to pay for economic losses such as hospital bills.
I wasn’t directly injured by a person. Can I still file?
In some cases, you may have been in a single-person accident, whether that was a slip-and-fall injury, a single-vehicle car accident, or a defective product. Although you may not have been directly injured, someone may still have been careless with your safety.
In these cases, you’ll need to speak to your Bronx attorney about who’s responsible and how you’ll need to file.
