Imagine being in a serious personal injury accident in Queens, NY. You have severe injuries to your head, back, arm, or other body parts. You’re terrified that you will be unable to work and pay your bills. How will you and your family make ends meet during this challenging circumstance? 

A personal injury attorney can be the key to getting the funds you need to cover medical costs, lost earnings, and other expenses. The Queens personal injury lawyers Varcadipane & Pinnisi, P.C, may be able to help. After you review this page, contact our personal injury lawyers for help. 


What Are The Most Common Personal Injury Claims in Queens? 

There are many kinds of accident claims in New York City, but the most common are car accidents. The most common fatal accidents are motor vehicle accidents, with 292 deaths happening per year. There also are roughly 6,200 hospitalizations for car accidents in the city annually. 

While motor vehicle accidents are most common, there are many other personal injury claims in Queens annually, such as: 

What Are The Signs Of A Valid Personal Injury Case? 

If you are injured in a car accident in Queens that someone else caused, your attorney must prove the other driver was liable. Next, the attorney must prove you have damages. 

Let’s say a driver runs a stop sign and rear-ends your vehicle. It would appear that the driver is responsible for the crash. However, you must show that you suffered damages. If you do not show any signs of injury, there may be no valid reason for a claim or lawsuit. This is why it is essential to be checked out by a doctor following the accident. You might ‘feel fine,’ but injuries can take days to manifest. Your Queens/Bronx personal injury attorney will ensure you see a doctor who documents your accident-related injuries. 

However, if it was a one-vehicle crash, there may not be anyone liable other than you. Sometimes there could be a hazardous road condition that caused the accident. 

Obtaining Compensation For Pain and Suffering in Queens

Doctor holding senior cancer patient's hand in hospital, health care and medical conceptThere are two kinds of damages in accidents: economic damages and non-economic damages. Monetary damages refer to bills for medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, and lost earnings. It is usually easy to prove these expenses by proving your medical costs and lost wages. Your attorney will collect proof of these expenses before negotiating with the insurance company. 

But what about pain and suffering? For example, the pain from a back injury could be substantial and be valued far more than your medical bills and lost earnings. The good news is your Queens personal injury attorney is experienced in valuing pain and suffering in New York accidents. 

Your attorney will likely refer to recent judgments and settlements with related car accidents in Queens. These cases could be a starting point for pain and suffering settlement negotiations. In addition, many accident injuries are similar to each other. So, your lawyer can review databases of similar accidents to get a baseline for a possible pain and suffering settlement. 

Queen Personal Injury Attorney-FAQs

Being involved in a personal injury accident in Queens, N.Y., can affect your life in many ways. You may have barely walked away with your body intact. Your body and mind may be injured for years to come. Because so many accidents happen daily, it may be hard to determine whether you have a credible personal injury case. Here are some common questions about personal injury cases and how our Queens personal injury lawyers can help you.

Should I file a personal injury claim even if I haven’t been hurt?

There are some personal injury accidents where the injuries aren’t immediately detected. Some accidents include car accidents, medical malpractice accidents, and even injuries related to toxic exposure.

Even if you don’t immediately experience medical injuries, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer and determine whether you should seek compensation. Your injuries may reveal themselves years later. Unfortunately, it will be too late for you to hold the necessary parties accountable.

If you can prove the other party’s negligence and how that negligence caused you particular damages, you may consider filing a claim.

What is the deadline for filing a personal injury claim?

Each personal injury claim has a statute of limitations. This is the period that each victim has to obtain compensation for their accident. When this period is up, the victim can no longer hold the other party accountable for their accident.

The statute of limitations depends on the type of accident and the state where the accident happened. For example, a car accident victim in New York has three years to file a claim. Many insurance companies use the fact that claims were filed past the statute of limitations as a way to get claims thrown out. That’s why filing a claim on time is taken seriously.

Should I speak with insurance adjusters about my injury and accident?

Never speak with insurance adjusters about your accident. No matter how much they try to intimidate you, you should only speak with your attorney about the nature of your accident. The insurance adjusters will use any information you give them to discredit your claim. Even the details you don’t think will be used to question the facts of your accident.

Insurance adjusters have one mission only: to eliminate as many claims as possible. You don’t want to allow them to deny your claim and go through an unnecessary appeal process. If insurance adjusters want details about your accident, tell them to contact your attorney.

Should I represent myself or reach out to a personal injury lawyer?

Even though you can represent yourself, you want to give yourself the best chance at success with your case. You don’t want to leave your injury case up to chance. You also don’t want to make yourself a target against insurance adjusters.

Insurance adjusters know how to take advantage of personal injury victims without legal representation. At the same time, you want to be represented by a credible law firm. You want a personal injury lawyer who has your best interests at heart with the right experience.
