You may have a personal injury claim if you have been injured by another party’s actions. To have a valid claim, the following elements have to be present in your case:
In order to succeed in your claim, you must prove all the elements are present in your case. Proving these elements often requires extensive investigations, witness interviews, expert witnesses, and in-depth knowledge of the law. Gold & Gold has the resources to investigate your case and develop a strategy to protect your interests. Our passion for our clients is evident in our track record of six and seven-figure recoveries.
Under comparative fault rules, the fault of the responsible parties is established and damages are apportioned to the parties according to how much they contributed to the incident. In some states, if the victim is found to be more than 50% at fault for their injury, they will not receive any compensation. New York follows the pure comparative negligence rule. This means that even if a person is 99% at fault for their injury, they will still be able to recover 1% of the damages they suffer as a result of their injury. At Gold & Gold, we work very hard to limit any apportionment of fault to you.
There are time limits, and the time you have will depend on the basis of your personal injury claim. Generally, the statute of limitation for personal injury cases in New York is 3 years from the date of the accident that caused your injury. The statute of limitation for medical malpractice cases is 2 years and 6 months from the date of the treatment or the end of continuous treatment provided by the doctor or entity you intend to sue for your injury. Wrongful death claims must be filed within 2 years from the death of the victim.
