We’re a Person Injury-Only Law Firm Representing Hudson Valley Accident Victims
If you or someone you love has been hurt because of another person’s negligence, recklessness, or illegal conduct, you shouldn’t have to bear the costs of your recovery out of your own pocket. Personal injury claims seek to compensate accident victims for economic damages – such as medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages. This also includes non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish.
A wide range of incidents and circumstances may give rise to a personal injury claim, including, but not limited to:
While some personal injury claims are based on another person’s recklessness or intentional wrongdoing, most injury lawsuits are based on a theory of negligence. For purposes of legal claims, in general, negligence is when a person or entity breaches a duty they owe to you as the consumer. For example, the duty to drive safely or the duty to maintain a safe environment for shoppers and restaurant diners.
Accidents caused by negligence should never have happened.
To have a successful legal claim for negligence, there must be an injury or damages, and someone must have committed a negligent act. The negligent act may be a positive act, such as rear-ending another driver, or an act of omission, such as a dog owner failing to protect people from a dog’s aggressive behavior.
There are also types of professional negligence – such as medical malpractice, dental malpractice, and nursing home neglect – which may give rise to personal injury claim. In other cases, negligence in manufacturing, producing, and distributing safe products to consumers may lead to a product liability claim.
