Types of Personal Injuries
The term “personal injury” is used in law to refer to personal or psychological injuries rather than to physical property. Our experienced personal injury attorneys in New York City have handled a wide variety of cases and can assist you in whatever type of claim you may have. We have received hundreds of settlements in cases involving medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and more.
Personal injuries can happen just about anywhere and can range from minor cuts and bruises to permanent disability or wrongful death. The skilled and knowledgeable New York City personal injury attorneys at Silberstein, Awad & Miklos, P.C. have handled every type of claim and can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Types of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injuries can be devastating and take their toll on you and your family physically, emotionally and financially. Some of the personal injury areas we handle on a regular basis include:
Motor Vehicle Accidents: This can include cars, motorcycles, trucks, recreational vehicles, buses or even train and subway accidents.
Wrongful Death: In some cases, wrongful death may be part of another type of claims such as medical malpractice, nursing home abuse or vehicle accidents.
Nursing Home Abuse: Abuse can take many forms such as physical or mental abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, or abandonment.
Premises Liability: Unsafe premises can include elevator accidents, slip and fall, poor security, daycare accidents and more.
Product Liability: More than just faulty manufacturing, product liability may also refer to unsafe drugs or any item sold that brings you harm even though it was used correctly.
Determining Who is Responsible
In some cases, such as an auto accident, it may be easier to determine who is responsible and should be held liable for their negligent actions. Product liability and premises liability claims may easily involve more than one party. For a defective product, both the manufacturer and distributor of the product may be held responsible and be made to pay for the injuries their product incurred.
It is always best to talk to one of our experienced personal injury attorneys before proceeding with any lawsuit on your own. We know the law and have the necessary resources to accurately determine who should be held liable for your damages. We can ensure that you get all the compensation you deserve for cover your medical bills, and all other expenses associated with your personal injury claim.
