Types of Personal Injury Cases
Every year in New York, there are upwards of 823 injury hospitalizations for every 100,000 residents, which translates to almost one-percent of the population. When a person believes that his/her injuries were due to negligence or wrongdoing, whether accidental or intentional, that person can file a personal injury claim in New York and take the opposing party(s) to court. In general, a personal injury lawsuit involves two central components—liability and damages. The main goal of the claim is to prove the other party’s (either a person or a company) liability for the injuries you sustained. If you can prove to the court both liability and the damages, then the New York civil courts will award you compensation for your losses.
Although you can be injured in a countless number of ways, there are many specific situations that, by their inherent nature, may render the need for a personal injury attorney. Since the founding of our firm in 1997, we at Bernacki Law have successfully represented hundreds of individuals from Pittsford, Rochester, Monroe County, and throughout New York. Our most effective personal injury practice areas include:
- Car accidents and collisions
- Bus accidents
- Dog bites
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home neglect
- Premises liability
- Products liability
- School and daycare injuries
- Sexual assault (civil cases)
- Slip and fall accidents
- Wrongful death
It is important to note that every personal injury claim involves a myriad of unique factors; however, in satisfying the requirements for proving liability and damages, you should always retain as much documentation as possible, including medical diagnoses and prognoses, names of physicians and hospitals, police reports (if applicable), loss of income from work, loss of future earning capacity, and so forth.
How to Choose Your Personal Injury Lawyer
At Bernacki Law, we believe in personal responsibility. When you’re seriously hurt by the negligence of another person, it can feel quite frustrating. “Why did this have to happen to me?” is a common sentiment we hear in our office. Furthermore, the opposing party (either a person or a company) is often represented by insurance company lawyers or are otherwise resisting an obligation to provide fair and reasonable compensation.
Your choice of a personal injury lawyer will have a dramatic effect on the outcome of the case. Because of the expenses related to an injury, your choice of a lawyer may be one of the most important decisions you’ll have. At Bernacki Law, we emphasize a personal, one-on-one relationship that emphasizes your needs and interests above all else. We’ll create and adjust our litigation strategies based on these interests, and ensure that you’re involved in every step of the process. Moreover, when it comes to negotiating a settlement or proving the case in courts, we always ensure an aggressive, yet professional attitude, and we’ll use the full extent of New York and federal laws to ensure a fair and reasonable compensation.
