When an injured party (the plaintiff) files a personal injury claim against the party at fault for their injuries (the defendant), the plaintiff is eligible to receive monetary compensation to cover any losses they sustained due to the accident.
In a typical personal injury claim, the plaintiff has the opportunity to receive compensation for the following:
- All past, present, and future medical expenses related to the accident
- Time taken off work for recovery
- Property damage repair or replacement
- Ongoing treatment such as physical therapy or counseling
- Pain, suffering, trauma, mental anguish, and other non-economic losses
- Punitive damages (in rare cases)
- Other reasonable and necessary expenses related to the accident
Because the circumstances surrounding each claim are unique, it is impossible to say up front exactly which and how much compensation you will receive. Only by consulting with a lawyer about your specific claim can you get an idea of what to expect. Rest assured, the legal team at Faraci Lange, LLP will fight to secure every penny that you deserve.
For almost all New York personal injury claims, plaintiffs have three years from the date of the accident to file a claim. Once this statute of limitations has passed, it is extremely unlikely that the court will hear your case at all—unless you can show that extenuating circumstances kept you from filing earlier.
However, please note that in certain cases—such as medical malpractice and wrongful death—the statute of limitation can vary and may even be shorter than you expect. We advise you to consult with a personal injury attorney in Buffalo as soon after your accident as possible to have the best chance of receiving the compensation you deserve.
Unless you are already familiar with personal injury law and how to negotiate a settlement, having an attorney on your side will not only make the claims process easier but more lucrative. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to accurately calculate damages, file the necessary paperwork, craft an effective argument on your behalf, and stand up to any insurance companies who may try to talk you into a quick settlement.
Can hiring a personal injury lawyer in Buffalo increase your settlement? Absolutely. Having someone on your team who understands commonly used tactics to convince plaintiffs to accept a low settlement offer or deter them from taking legal action entirely can help you uphold rights you may not even be aware you possess.
At Faraci Lange, LLP, your personal injury attorney will factor in the possibility of future medical and other expenses that may come up later when calculating your damages to ensure you receive maximum compensation. We look forward to doing whatever it takes to ensure you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
Personal injury lawsuit may be resolved in a short period of time if the case is straightforward and the responsible party or insurance company is willing to settle outside of court. In situations like this a claim may be resolved in as little as a few months to a year. However, if your case is more complicated, you have suffered extensive injuries, or the responsible party is refusing to accept the blame for your injuries, your case may take significantly longer to resolve. When a case goes to trial it can take anywhere from a year to several years to resolve. Unsure how quickly your case will be able to be resolved?
