Brooklyn, NY Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal injuries can range from mild to severe or debilitating. They include but are not limited to:
- Cuts that scar and/or deeper lacerations
- Severe bruises
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) like concussions
- Spinal damage, up to or including paralysis
- Broken bones
- Strains, sprains, and ligaments tears
- Burns (e.g. chemical, thermal, electrical, etc.)
Unfortunately, personal injuries are far from uncommon in Brooklyn and New York City at large. Official data from the New York State Department of Health indicates that the top ten leading causes of hospitalization include injuries and poisonings, in addition to other common causes such as heart disease.
Even worse, personal injuries and poisonings are the leading causes of emergency department visits in all of New York City, including Brooklyn. They’re more likely to cause an emergency department visit compared to other serious medical problems, including diseases of the nervous system, asthma, and diseases of the respiratory system.
That’s why all Brooklyn residents need to know who they can call if they or a loved one are ever injured. To learn more, dial 1-800-966-4999 and allow Schwartzapfel Lawyers the honor and privilege of providing you with a free consultation today.
Causes of Personal Injuries
Personal injuries are caused every day due to a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes of personal injuries include:
- Car accidents, either between two drivers or between a car driver and a bicyclist or pedestrian, as well as truck accidents, bicycle accidents, and motorcycle accidents.
- Slips-and-fall accidents or trip-and-fall accidents, where an individual either slips and falls backward or trips and falls forward, injuring themselves as a result.
- Medical malpractice, which occurs when a medical practitioner negligently injures one of their patients.
- Product liability injuries, in which a product malfunctions and causes injury to its user(s).
- Construction accidents, which are very common throughout New York City. Construction accidents can include falls, injuries from machinery, welding accidents, and more.
Although some personal injuries are truly accidental, others are directly due to the negligence or ignorance of another party. In such circumstances, the injured party may have grounds for a lawsuit.
Can You Sue Someone for a Personal Injury?
Sometimes, but it depends on the circumstances of your personal injury. For example, New York is a no-fault state, meaning that you cannot normally sue another driver for injuries or property damage. There are some exceptions, however, in cases where your injuries are sufficiently severe or debilitating.
Regardless, any lawsuit is contingent on being able to prove negligence on behalf of another party. To discuss the specifics of your case at no charge, call 1-800-966-4999 and speak with a Schwartzapfel Lawyers representative now!
Significantly, in the eyes of the law, negligence doesn’t just mean carelessness. It refers to a specific concept in which:
- An individual or organization, like a business, had a distinct duty to your safety AND
- That individual or organization ignores that duty, either purposefully or recklessly, thereby leading to injuries
If a personal injury was caused due to the negligence of someone else, you may be able to sue them and recover damages for your injuries and medical bills, property damage, and/or certain non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Common examples of negligence include:
- A drunk or distracted driver who gets behind the wheel despite not being able to give the road their full attention and causes a motor vehicle accident
- An on-duty medical professional, like a nurse or surgeon, who performs duties while inebriated
- A negligent business owner who fails to put up a “Wet Floor” sign in their business after having an employee mop the floor
In all of these personal injury cases and more, you must be able to prove negligence to recover any sort of damages.
Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
Brooklyn personal injury lawyers such as Schwartzapfel Lawyers play vital roles in the success of any lawsuit. They can provide benefits to personal injury victims as soon as they’re hired.
Your personal injury lawyer can take charge of all negotiations between you and other parties, including both the at-fault party, their legal team, and even your insurance company. Your insurance company, in fact, may try to prevent you from receiving a payout to pay for your medical bills, sometimes by proving that you were at fault for your injuries.
You don’t need to bring this burden on yourself while you recover. Instead, knowledgeable personal injury attorneys can take the lead and negotiate on your behalf. They may be able to ensure that your premium does not increase unnecessarily, and that you receive the coverage your insurance policy demands.
