What are the steps in a personal injury lawsuit?

+ -

A personal injury lawsuit involves several key steps, including investigation, treatment, filing a complaint, discovery, negotiation, and trial if a settlement isn’t reached. The Buffalo Injury Law Firm will guide you through each step, gathering evidence, assessing damages, and keeping open the possibility of settlement with the responsible party’s insurance. Our goal is to secure a fair and just outcome, whether through settlement, litigation, or trial, to help you recover and move forward with your life.

How long do you have to sue someone for personal injury?

+ -

The answer to this question is nuanced and requires a lawyer to analyze the facts of each case. The time frame, known as the statute of limitations, for filing a personal injury lawsuit varies by the type and the cause of injury. Generally, the time frame for personal injury cases in New York is three years from the date of injury. The time frame is less if the responsible party is a government entity, or it’s a case involving wrongful death, or medical malpractice. It’s critical to act swiftly. The Buffalo Injury Law Firm can help you understand New York’s statute of limitations and ensure you don’t miss any deadlines.

What to do after a car accident?

+ -

After a car accident, the immediate priority is your safety and well-being. Seek medical attention for any injuries and call the police to report the accident. Document the scene with photos, exchange information with the other driver, and gather witness details if possible. Be very careful when speaking to insurance companies as what you say can be used against you later. It’s crucial to contact an experienced personal injury attorney at The Buffalo Injury Law Firm to protect your rights and navigate the complex legal process, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.

What does no-fault or personal injury protection mean?

+ -

No-fault or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance acts as a financial safety net that automatically kicks-in after a car accident or truck accident. It comes from your own insurance company and triggers regardless of who’s at fault. It will cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses you may incur after a car accident or truck accident. The Buffalo Injury Law Firm can help you timely file and navigate PIP claims to ensure you receive the benefits you’re entitled to under your insurance policy.

How long will my case take?

+ -

The length of a case varies and depends on a bunch of factors. Many injury cases take at least a year to resolve because it takes that long to get the right treatment and understand the injuries. Another big factor is whether the insurance company on the other side is willing to cooperate and evaluate the claim fairly.

How much should I ask for in a personal injury settlement?

+ -

Determining the appropriate settlement amount depends on many, many factors. Some of these include liability, medical expenses, lost wages, type of injury, severity of injury, whether the injury is permanent, pain and suffering, and insurance coverage.
