Queens Personal Injury Cases: What You Need to Know

There are a variety of ways one can sustain an injury in a busy city like New York. While we may practice safety precautions daily to minimize our chances of being hurt, there is always a risk of being injured.

The term “personal injury” refers to a wide range of potential circumstances. Examples of personal injury cases we handle in Queens include (but are not necessarily limited to) the following:

Car Accidents in Queens

New York is a no-fault state, which means you may be compensated for your medical bills and some economic losses through your own insurer if you are harmed in a Queens car accident. If your losses meet certain criteria, you may also pursue compensation from the negligent party who caused the accident. This also applies if you were injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft.

The claims process can be complex, but an attorney can help you secure compensation from an insurance company. Our car accident lawyers in Queens can determine if your case qualifies for compensation and file a claim accordingly if so.

Pedestrian Accidents in Queens

A pedestrian accident can happen unexpectedly and cause serious injuries. In a motor vehicle collision, you may at least have protection in the form of a car or truck’s steel frame surrounding your body. A pedestrian accident in busy areas like Queens can leave you with injuries that have a lasting impact on the quality of your life.

Our legal team will work hard to ensure the negligent party pays you what you may be entitled to. You can attempt to seek compensation for your losses by filing a claim against the negligent party’s insurance.

Motorcycle Accidents in Queens

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than most other vehicle drivers on the road. New York’s no-fault insurance is not available to riders, but you can seek compensation from the negligent party who may have put you in a dangerous situation. A Shulman & Hill motorcycle accident attorney can help you determine the liable party.

Bike Accidents in Queens

Biking is a popular way to get around Queens, and there are special lanes for riding. Still, bike accidents are common here. As with pedestrian and motorcycle accidents, they possess a high risk of causing serious injury if an accident occurs. If you are involved in such an accident, it is best to meet with a Queens bike accident lawyer to discuss your legal options as soon as possible.

Truck Accidents in Queens

Many factors may contribute to the severe pain and devastation a motor vehicle accident can cause. The size of the vehicles involved can play a key role in determining the injuries one may suffer from. Often, a larger vehicle has greater potential to do serious harm than a smaller one does.

Seeking compensation after a truck accident may require negotiating with large companies that have the resources to aggressively defend themselves. A truck accident lawyer from our firm can negotiate on your behalf.

Premises Liability Accidents in Queens

When you are on another person’s property, they have a responsibility to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition under the circumstances. The law requires that a property owner make a reasonable effort to prevent guests from being involved in accidents.

If you were harmed on someone else’s property because they failed to eliminate or warn you of a hazard, you could be compensated for your losses. We have premises liability lawyers who specialize in this type of case, ready to offer you a free consultation.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks in Queens

Just as property owners have a legal responsibility to prevent accidents, dog owners and owners of other animals have a responsibility to ensure their pets do not harm others. However, when they do, our dog bite lawyers can help you pursue compensation.

Wrongful Death Cases in Queens

There are instances when another party’s negligence results not just in avoidable injury but in death. While no one can bring your loved one back, if you lost someone as a result of negligence, the lawyers at Shulman & Hill who specialize in wrongful death cases can help you recover compensation accordingly.

The Role of a Personal Injury Law Firm

The way in which our Queens personal injury lawyers approach a case varies depending on the circumstances. We do not follow a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Instead, we consider the details of every case to determine how best to proceed.

The following are some of the ways we can help you seek compensation after you or a loved one have been injured as a result of another’s negligence:

  • Thoroughly investigating the case to ensure we have accurately identified any and all liable parties responsible for compensating you
  • Reviewing all of your medical bills and lost wages to understand the full extent of your losses
  • Collecting evidence to justify the amount of compensation you are seeking
  • Handling all major correspondence with insurance companies, experts, and others involved in your case
  • Handling all administrative tasks so you can focus on your recovery
  • Negotiating with insurance companies to ensure you receive fair compensation
  • Going to trial, if necessary

We Aim to Recover Compensation for Your Injury-Related Challenges

Suffering an injury in Queens does more than threaten your health; it touches each corner of your life, from your ability to work to your day-to-day function. We believe that your settlement should account for those hardships. Compensable losses in your case may include:

  • Past/future pain and suffering
  • Past/future medical bills
  • Past/future lost income

We may seek additional damages unique to your situation. It all depends on the severity of your condition, your expenses, and other factors.

We Gather the Evidence Necessary to Bolster Your Claim

Whether you were hurt in a car accident, slip and fall, or another situation, you need evidence to bolster your case. Some of this information isn’t readily accessible. Yet, our lawyers in Queens know what goes into thoroughly investigating a claimant’s accident and injuries. We can utilize the following information to support your case:

  • The police/accident report
  • Accident reconstruction data
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Information from third-party field experts, such as healthcare providers
  • Photos and videos of your injury and the accident scene
  • Your receipts and invoices for accident-related expenses

With the information we find, we aim to prove that because another party’s negligence resulted in your injuries, you deserve compensation.

Our Legal Peers Recognize Our Quality of Service

Over the years, we’ve received many awards from our peers in the legal community, including:

  • Recognition by the American Academy of Attorneys
  • Admission into New York Super Lawyers
  • One of the 10 Best Law Firms in 2019 selected by the American Institute of Legal Counsel
  • Membership in the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40
  • Attorney and Practice Magazine’s Top 10 Plaintiff Personal Injury Award

These honors reflect the level of service we offer to injured people throughout New York City. Shulman & Hill is known in the legal community for offering quality representation to those in need.

We Abide by All State-Mandated Civil Deadlines

New York sets a deadline for initiating legal action in civil cases. Known as the “statute of limitations,” your filing period depends on the case you’re pursuing. For instance, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit under New York law. Yet, you typically have just two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Our personal injury lawyers serving Queens manage each of the deadlines that come along with your case. This protects your right to fair compensation.

Our Lawyers Advocate for People Suffering From These Conditions

We extend legal help if you or a loved one are suffering from any of the following injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Nerve damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • The loss of one or more limbs
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Sprains, strains, and other soft-tissue injuries
  • Lacerations

We also advocate for families who have lost loved ones.

Medical Attention Is a Central Element of Your Injury Case

Healthcare expenses could make up a sizeable portion of your damages. Yet, to recover these losses, it’s vital that you seek medical attention. A healthcare provider can assess your situation, implement a treatment plan, and explain your next steps. They can also provide crucial information to supplement your case, such as imaging scans, lab test results, and other information.

We can also use your doctor’s testimony to argue your case. We want as much information as possible to bolster your Queens personal injury claim.

These Considerations Could Promote Your Injury Case’s Outcome

Your personal injury lawyer in Queens intends to do everything in their power to win your case. Still, there are some measures you can take to promote your case, such as:

  • Referring all settlement offers to your lawyer. The insurance company’s first offer may not reflect the true extent of your pain and suffering. Your lawyer understands your case’s value from the very beginning, and they can explain whether an offer truly meets your needs.
  • Completing your treatment plan. It’s vital that you follow your doctor’s orders to the best of your ability. This prevents the other party from alleging that your own negligence worsened your condition. It also helps you reach maximum medical improvement.
  • Limiting what you share verbally and digitally. Only you, your lawyer, and your immediate family members need to know about your case’s details. Your friends on social media do not. The claims adjuster doesn’t need a recorded statement from you, either. Remember: anything you share could hurt your case’s outcome. You should only share basic information with the involved parties––not allegations of fault or anything speculative.
