Does My Bronx Accident Qualify for a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Personal injury lawsuits cover multiple types of accidents and injuries. Here are some of the most common types of personal injury lawsuits:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

According to the CDC, there are three million injuries caused by car accidents each year. If you were a passenger or driver and were injured in a crash that was caused by the negligence of another party—typically the at-fault driver—you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Negligence in a motorcycle, truck, or car accident may include aggressive driving, speeding, failure to obey traffic signals, distracted driving, and more.

Bike and Pedestrian Accidents

Many Bronx residents bike or walk to get around their neighborhoods. When cyclists share the roads with motor vehicles and pedestrians cross the street, they may be at risk of being struck by a car, truck, or motorcycle. In 2020 alone, the NYPD reported that there were 765 bike accidents in the Bronx involving motor vehicles that resulted in injuries, eight of which were fatal. In the Bronx that same year, there were 1,263 pedestrian accidents that resulted in injuries, 21 of which were fatal.

If you were struck by a vehicle while cycling or walking in the Bronx, contact our personal injury lawyers to see if you may be eligible for compensation.

Transportation Accidents

The subway is one of the most popular modes of transportation throughout the Bronx. Train collisions, fires, and other accidents can result in serious injuries. If you or a loved one were hurt in a Bronx train accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Slip and Falls

A fall can cause serious injuries, from broken bones and back injuries to concussions and more. Property owners and other relevant parties are required to maintain safe premises for guests. This includes mopping wet floors, shoveling snow and removing ice during the winter, installing signage that warns visitors of potential slip and fall hazards, and more.

If you fell in a store, restaurant, or similar venue in the Bronx and the property owners and/or managers did not address the hazard that caused your accident, you may qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Construction Accidents

While most injured workers qualify for workers’ compensation benefits after a workplace injury, sometimes workers may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit as well. Construction workers who were hurt in an accident that was caused by a party other than their employers—such as a contractor or property owner—or if they were injured due to a statutory violation at the worksite for which the property owner or general contractor may be liable, may qualify to file a lawsuit. A personal injury lawsuit may result in additional compensation for pain and suffering and similar losses not covered by workers’ compensation.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

If you were bitten by a dog in the Bronx or attacked by a similar animal, you may qualify for compensation if the dog’s owner or the party harboring the dog was negligent.

Why Should I File a Bronx Personal Injury Lawsuit?

An injury not only presents physical complications and challenges while you recover but it may also present financial consequences. Serious injuries may prevent you from working while at the same time requiring unexpected treatment which may be expensive. If another party’s negligence and carelessness were the reason why you got hurt, you should not have to absorb these costs on your own.

A successful personal injury lawsuit can help recover compensation for the following losses (past and future) related to your injury:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of earning potential

How Can a Bronx Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

An experienced Bronx personal injury attorney can build a strong case for compensation on your behalf by investigating the cause of your accident and resulting injuries, and gathering supporting evidence that shows why you may be entitled to compensation.

Having a personal injury law firm on your side can also be immensely helpful during negotiations with the insurance company. Unfortunately, some insurance companies may offer you a low settlement or, in worst-case scenarios, nothing at all. A personal injury lawyer can fight for your interests to recover the maximum amount of compensation you may be entitled to.

Some people may avoid filing a lawsuit altogether after an injury because they are afraid of how long and difficult the process can be. We understand that. That is why the personal injury lawyers at Shulman & Hill will take the time to carefully explain the path ahead and answer any questions you may have throughout the duration of your case.
