Bronx Personal Injury Attorneys Represent Accident Victims
New York lawyers help those who have been hurt by falls, crashes and malpractice
As we go about our day, it can be easy to forget all the dangers around us. When an accident happens, however, our lives can be changed in an instant. At the Bronx law firm of James Newman, P.C., our accident injury lawyers have helped thousands of people receive the compensation they need to heal after an injury. We pursue justice against negligent drivers, property owners, companies and doctors. We settle for nothing less than everything you are entitled to receive, and we are prepared to take any case to trial if necessary.
Representing the injured in a wide variety of cases
We have been helping injury victims for more than 35 years. Over that time, our personal injury firm has developed the skills and knowledge to represent those injured by:
- Auto accidents
- Construction accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Other premises liability accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Negligence during birth
We have the experience and resources to represent injury victims in settlement negotiations or at trial against even the most powerful defendants. We also bring wrongful death claims on behalf of families who have endured the loss of a loved one.
Bringing an injury lawsuit in New York courts
In order to bring a claim for your injury, your accident must have been caused by the negligence of a person or a company. This means that the person had some sort of duty to protect you, and your injury must have been caused by a breach of that duty. For example, drivers have a duty to keep from recklessly swerving into the lane of another driver. If you are hurt because of this type of action, your claim may be successful.
In most cases, adults have three years from the date of their injury to bring a claim. Medical malpractice claims must be brought within two years and six months. Wrongful death actions need to be filed within two years. The statute of limitations often differs for cases involving minors.
Damages available in personal injury cases
There is no way to know for sure what damages you will recover in your personal injury lawsuit. Each case is unique, and the specific facts of a case mean that very similar injuries can result in very different damage awards or settlements. We are often able to help injury victims recover compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Lost earning potential
In New York, personal injury damages are not usually capped or limited. At our Bronx personal injury law firm, the father-and-son team of James Newman and Kyle Newman make sure you don’t accept settlement offers that aren’t in your best interest. That is why you should speak to us before you talk to your insurance company.
