How Much Is My Bronx Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of a Bronx personal injury claim or lawsuit depends on the specific accident circumstances, the type of accident that happens due to negligence, the bodily injuries that the accident victim suffers, the type of claim that the accident victim files, and the cost of the accident victim’s medical treatment, lost income, and other damages.

For an initial car accident claim, most accident victims must turn to their own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance coverage for monetary damages. A PIP policy ordinarily covers accident victims’ related medical expenses and lost income.

However, to recover additional monetary damages, a car accident victim must generally have a basis to file a third-party claim against the at-fault party, such as when they suffer a permanent or disabling injury in their accident.

Victims of other serious accidents, including his premises accidents, can go ahead and file a third-party injury claim against the at-fault individual or entity from the onset.

As part of a third-party claim or lawsuit, the accident victim must first satisfy their legal burden of proof to be eligible for monetary compensation and damages. Specifically, they must demonstrate that the at-fault party acted unreasonably under the circumstances and that, as a result, both the accident and their injuries occurred.

As part of a third-party claim, accident victims can recover monetary damages for all of their related:

  • Lost earnings, in the event they are unable to work for some time after their accident
  • Loss of earning capacity if they have to switch to light-duty work or switch their entire job – and take a pay cut – because of the injuries they suffered in their accident
  • Past and future medical expenses, covering the medical treatment that the accident victim already received for their injuries, along with their anticipated medical costs if they suffered a permanent injury in their accident
  • Loss of life enjoyment, if their quality and enjoyment of life significantly declined after their accident due to the injuries they suffered
  • Loss of use of a body part, such as from a permanent spinal cord or paralysis injury they suffered in their accident
  • Mental anguish, such as from post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from their accident
  • Past and future pain and suffering, along with the inconvenience of their resulting medical treatment
  • Loss of spousal consortium if their accident-related injuries prevent them from being intimate with their spouse
  • Lifetime care costs if their injuries require around-the-clock medical care
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement, if the accident victim sustained a permanent or disfiguring injury in their accident

Our legal team can evaluate your case and determine which damages you may be eligible to recover as part of your personal injury claim or lawsuit. We can also give you a ballpark figure regarding the total value of your personal injury case.

Where Do Accidents Frequently Happen in the Bronx?

Many accidents occur in the Bronx, ranging from motor vehicle collisions and pedestrian accidents to slip and fall accidents.

Many motor vehicle accidents happen on busy highways in the region, including the Cross Bronx Expressway. They may also occur at dangerous traffic intersections throughout the area, including West Fordham Road and Major Deegan Expressway, East Fordham Road and Southern Boulevard, and West 179th Street and Cedar Avenue.

Slip and fall accidents are widespread at restaurants like McDonald’s or Starbucks, bars, and grocery stores in the Bronx since food and liquid may spill onto the floor quickly and easily in those locations.

Premises accidents that stem from negligent security may also occur at bars and restaurants, especially if the establishment owner does not have an adequate security presence for an event.

Bronx accidents may also happen at swimming pools, amusement parks or fairs, workplaces, and construction sites. Those at construction sites work around heavy and dangerous equipment every day.

If you suffered injuries in an accident in one of these locations, you may file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the at-fault individual or entity. Our legal team can thoroughly evaluate your circumstances and determine your eligibility for filing a claim. We can then move forward by filing the claim with an insurance company on your behalf and negotiating a fair settlement offer that compensates you for your injuries and damages.

What Are the Most Common Injuries that Bronx Accident Victims Suffer?

The injuries that an accident victim may suffer are very case-specific and dependent upon the accident type, the force involved in the accident, and the body parts affected in the accident.

Sometimes, accident victims suffer permanent injuries in their accidents. As a result, they may need to undergo continuous medical treatment for their injuries and experience significant pain for the rest of their lives.

Some of the most common injuries that happen in Bronx accidents include:

Traumatic Brain Injury in Bronx

  • Knee and shoulder injuries
  • Traumatic head and brain damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Complete and incomplete paralysis injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Rib fractures
  • Road rash
  • Soft tissue contusions
  • Eye injuries
  • Mouth and teeth injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Internal bleeding

If you suffered one or more of these injuries in an accident resulting from another party’s negligence, you should focus on getting the medical treatment you need. During this time, we can gather your medical treatment records, medical bills, lost income documentation, and other documents pertinent to your case. We can then assemble these documents into a complete settlement demand package for the insurance company adjuster to review and evaluate.

Fighting the Insurance Company Following a Bronx Accident

Following a Bronx accident, our legal team will likely deal with the at-fault party’s insurance company.

However, no matter which insurance company we deal with, you should be wary about accepting the settlement adjuster’s initial offer. In fact, it may take several rounds of negotiations before the insurance company increases its offer to an acceptable number.

When dealing with insurance companies, always understand how these big businesses work. Insurance companies are not interested in fully and fairly compensating accident victims for their injuries. Instead, the exact opposite is true.

Insurance companies want to do everything they can to undermine an accident victim’s personal injury claim and offer them as little monetary compensation as possible. Insurance companies may lose a lot of money if they have to pay a large financial settlement, binding arbitration award, or jury verdict to an injured accident victim.

Given the potential consequences, insurance companies frequently try to pin the blame for the accident on the injured accident victim. The insurance company might also argue that the accident victim’s injuries are not all that serious or that their injuries are unrelated to the accident.

Our legal team knows the tactics insurance companies routinely use to try and undervalue serious personal injury claims. We can negotiate with insurance company representatives by pointing out the strength of your medical records and other essential documents in your case. We can also retain a medical expert to testify as a witness at trial.

If that does not work and the insurance company refuses to offer you favorable settlement compensation, we can file a lawsuit and litigate your case in the New York State Court System.

During the litigation stage of your personal injury case, we can introduce evidence on your behalf, make convincing arguments, and pursue the largest monetary recovery available to you.

Essential Steps to Take Following a Bronx Accident

Following a Bronx accident, complete all of your prescribed medical treatment. For example, you may need to undergo a surgical procedure or spend time in physical therapy.

By completing your medical treatment, you significantly increase your chances of recovering fully from your injuries. You also show the at-fault party’s insurance company that your injuries are related to the accident and that they deserve appropriate monetary compensation.

One of the worst things you can do is miss treatment appointments or discharge yourself prematurely from a medical treatment plan.

In addition to seeking the ongoing medical care you need, you need to gather the necessary documentation in your case, including police reports, contact information for witnesses, photographs of the incident scene, witness reports, medical records, medical bills, and other accident-related documents. Once you provide these documents, we can forward them to the insurance company and begin the settlement negotiation process on your behalf.

The necessary tasks might seem overwhelming after a severe car crash and injuries. However, calling us takes a lot off your plate. We will handle every aspect of your claim and advise you on what to do – and not to do – so you never have to wonder.
