Damages are the losses you suffer in personal injury cases. New York divides these losses into two general categories.
Special damages are monetary losses you suffer that can be linked to a certain value, such as through a bill or estimate. Common types of special damages in New York personal injury cases include:
General damages are your non-monetary losses. They are difficult to quantify because they are not directly linked to a numeric value. Common examples of general damages awarded in New York personal injury cases include:
Your personal injury lawyer can help gather evidence and knows how to prove the value of these types of damages. They may use experts to better quantify your losses and how the injuries may impact your life.
In New York, you can still bring a claim against a negligent party even if you were partially to blame for the accident. The state’s contributory negligence law states that your own negligence is not a bar to recovery. However, your damages are reduced by your degree of fault. Therefore, if you suffered damages of $1 million and you are found 50% at fault, the most you would be able to recover is $500,000.
Each state has the right to establish time limits for cases that are brought to its state courts. These are known as statutes of limitations. According to New York’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases, you generally have three years to file a lawsuit against the defendant. If this time passes and you have failed to file a lawsuit, you can miss out on your opportunity to recover compensation from the defendant through the court system.
There are exceptions when you may have more or less time than this. For example, wrongful death cases must be brought within two years of the death. Cases against New York governmental agencies are subject to faster notice and procedure deadlines.
However, if a minor was injured in the accident or the defendant has left the state, you may have more time to file your lawsuit. It is best to contact a knowledgeable Sunnyside personal injury lawyer who can review your situation and determine the deadline that applies to your case.
If you were injured in a car accident or other type of personal injury accident, the team at Oresky & Associates, PLLC wants to help. We can gather evidence, coordinate your medical care, and negotiate for fair compensation on your behalf so you can focus on your recovery.
