If you or one of your loved ones is injured in an accident, you need an experienced lawyer like Lisa S. Fine who understands the practice of personal injury law in the New York Court system. Injuries sustained in an automobile, trip and fall or other type of accident must be documented by medical professionals. There are certain deadlines and timelines that must be followed in these situations to sustain your claim and insure coverage, and finding the right personal injury attorney right away is crucial. Insurance companies will try to undervalue settlements and claim that their insured was not at fault. The accident attorney must know how to value a personal injury claim, and guide the claimant in obtaining the right treatment and gathering the right evidence to support a claim for injuries in New York courts.
The principal of our firm, Lisa S. Fine, has been practicing in the field of personal injury law for over 15 years. She has handled hundreds of car accident, trip and fall and other types of cases against municipalities, including the City of New York, and has successfully tried and settled cases against major insurance companies including Allstate, Geico, Hartford, Progressive, State Farm and Liberty Mutual. Her experience, empathy and passion have led to success in guiding injured clients through the process, ensuring they receive proper medical care and coverage for that care, and have resulted in many successful negotiations and trial verdicts.
In order to establish a claim for the Tort of Negligence or “Personal Injury” in New York the claimant must prove that the person or party responsible, the “tortfeasor” had a duty of care to the claimant, that the tortfeasor breached that duty of care, and that the breach of duty led to the claimant sustaining an injury. The standard for determining whether the tortfeasor breached the duty of care falls on what a “reasonably prudent person” would have done under the circumstances. A breach can occur through the actions, or sometimes the non-actions of a party. For example, a party who knows about a defective condition on his or her property, but fails to repair that defective condition within a certain amount of time could be held responsible if someone is injured as a result of that defect. The party’s non-actions in failing to repair the defect can lead to that party’s accountability in Court for the injury of the claimant. Causation is important to establish as well in Personal Injury actions. An injured party is required to show that but for the negligence of the tortfeasor, the injured party would not have become injured. Our firm can help you determine if your injury was the fault of another party, and therefore actionable, under New York law.
