New York is a busy place with lots of moving parts. Unfortunately this often leads to injuries. While ‘accidents happen’ the law mandates who is responsible for what. Sadly in a city like New York, the law can be a dizzying maze of tort law and municipal codes. The last thing you need is to try to figure this out on your own while recovering from an accident! That’s way you need to consult with a NYC personal injury attorney who can help you get your day in court.
Whether you are in a auto accident with a cab or trip and fall down stairs while visiting a friend’s apartment, there are liability issues you might not think of. Will the taxicab company fight you in court? Were the stairs safe and adequately lit? In either case, a different set of laws will apply. If you have a severe injury, you owe it to yourself and your family to consult with a NYC personal injury attorney to determine if there are liability issues involved.
Businesses and insurance companies do not like going to court. However just because they wish to settle is often the wrong choice for the injured party. Too often the out-of-court settlement is for a fraction of what you are entitled to. Even if you do settle, using a professional NYC personal injury attorney will help you get a fair settlement.
It’s Your Due!
Far too often people don’t fight for their rights because they see the incident as merely ‘something which just happened’ or accident with no negligence. This, however, is not the case. Liability is not changed by intent so if you have been injured, don’t let the following sway you:
- Feelings that going to court is needlessly vindictive to the other party.
- Feelings that you cannot win against the other party’s lawyers.
- Feelings that you do not want to be seen as trying to make a profit over an accident.
Again, liability is the law and it is up to the court to decide how much at fault the other party is. If you don’t sue, the court will never be able to make such a ruling.
