Long Island Personal Injury Law Firm
Injury attorneys from the Law Firm of Jeffrey G. Lerman, P.C. on Long Island help individuals injured due to someone else's negligence pursue a personal injury claim.
Acts of negligence, carelessness and/or recklessness that cause an accident, resulting in an injury, are examples of personal injury litigation. If you have been injured due to one of these reasons, you may have the right to seek compensation for damages. If you win your case either by an out-of-court settlement or a lawsuit, the party responsible for your injury will have to pay you (usually through their insurance company) for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, and loss of wages if you cannot work.
How can you be injured?
Personal injuries are commonly physical injuries, although financial and professional injuries can also occur. Typical physical injuries are from:
• Motor vehicle accidents
• Car crashes
• Slip and fall accidents
• Premises liability
• Workplace and/or industrial accidents
• Defective products
Levels of Personal Injuries
The level of physical injuries can run the gamut from minor to life-threatening. For example, you may walk away from an auto accident with a few cuts and bruises, but your passenger may sustain traumatic brain injury that requires long-term care.
Seek Medical Attention
The first rule you should follow if you are injured is to seek medical attention. Many physical injuries are not apparent until sometime after the incident or accident. Also, details that are required to be recorded such as the date, time, place, and cause of the injury need to be supported by medical professionals where the injury took place, or at the nearest emergency room.
