Manhattan Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

If you were involved in an accident that resulted in a serious injury, you understand just how complicated everything can become afterward. It’s unfortunate, but insurance hassles, legal challenges, and medical care can all make the aftermath more stressful than the accident itself was.

Don’t worry if you’re confused and aren’t sure about what to do next. In the section below, we’ve answered a few common questions that we hear on a regular basis, and we’re happy to provide additional information upon request.

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim allows you to seek financial compensation from the at-fault party who caused the accident that injured you. The system allows you to recover damages for both financial expenses and lost quality of life caused by the injury.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in New York?

In Manhattan and the rest of New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. That means you have three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file within this timeframe, you will lose your right to seek compensation.

Why do I need a lawyer for a personal injury claim?

A number of legal complications and insurance problems can develop during an injury claim. If you aren’t careful, an insurance company or opposing attorney could take advantage of you and make you a victim all over again. Working with an attorney allows you to deal with these entities on an equal footing, both in court and at the negotiating table.

What is my injury claim worth?

This is a common question after suffering a serious injury, but unfortunately, the answer isn’t simple. The value of your claim will depend on how serious your injury is, what sort of treatment your recovery will require, whether you’ll have to miss work, and how your injury will negatively impact your life.

Will I have to go to court for a personal injury claim?

Going to court to resolve a personal injury claim is possible but also fairly rare. In most cases, both sides are able to agree upon a settlement amount during negotiations. You’ll only need to go to trial if the negligent party or the insurer won’t make a reasonable offer.
