What are the most common personal injury cases?

If you or someone you know has recently suffered a personal injury due to the negligence of a business or responsible individuals, you may want to contact a personal injury lawyer in Hauppauge. At Birzon & Associates, we are here to help you with all your personal injury claims.

What are personal injury cases?

 Personal injury cases are legal disputes that come into play when a person is harmed in an accident or injury, and another person might be legally responsible for the harm. The person responsible for the incident will be taken to court and will pay money to the person filing for the personal injury claim. This money can go towards medical bills, pain and suffering, and other medical expenses that might be. 

There are two main outcomes of personal injury cases:

1) Formal Lawsuit: This is when a private individual, also known as the plaintiff, files a civil complaint against a business, person, or corporation known as the defendant. This is known as filing a lawsuit and means the plaintiff is accusing the defendant of having acted carelessly in connection to the accident.

2) Informal Settlement: Most disputes are resolved through an early informal settlement. In this informal settlement, the insurers and attorneys will represent both sides. This settlement usually takes form as a negotiation, where both sides agree on an amount of money, and neither party can further go into a lawsuit. 

How long do you have to file a personal injury case?

When a plaintiff is injured, they have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit, this is known as the “statute of limitations.” This period begins when the person is injured or discovers their injury. Statute of limitations is established by state laws and often varies by the type of injury.

What Makes A Defendant Liable 

To determine if you should file a lawsuit, we need to look at the defendant who can be held liable for slips and falls.  If you believe either of the two situations applies to you, our Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer Attorney should be contacted immediately:

  1. The hazardous condition should have been recognized and removed by the property owner (or an employee/agent of the property owner) but was not done.  It will need to be determined if a reasonable person should have recognized the issue, or if they had ample time to correct it but chose not to.
  2. The hazardous condition was caused by the defendant.  It was foreseeable that certain actions of the defendant would cause future slips and falls.

Proving The Negligence and Liability Of The Defendant

The next step in building a case is to prove that there was negligence expressed by the defendant that caused your slip and fall.  By explaining your fall to our Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer, we’ll have a better understanding of if we can prove any of the following:

  1. The hazard was around long enough that a reasonable defendant should have taken care of it.
  2. Conditions leading to the fall could have been avoided by the defendant taking preventative methods.
  3. There are no reasonable justifications for the hazard to have been created.

You Did Not Cause The Incident Yourself

The final factor in a situation like this is proving you did not cause the incident yourself, which is why our Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer needs to be contacted. We’ll be able to look at all aspects of your story, and paint a compelling picture that shows:  

  1. You were not engaging in any activities that prevented you from seeing the hazard.
  2. You had lawful access to the area where the slip and fall occurred.
  3.  There were no safety measures implemented by the defendant to warn about the hazardous area that you ignored.
