    I am sorry to hear about your injuries. Because you were working at the time of the incident, you qualify for Workers' Compenstation. Because the vehicle that struck you and caused your injuries was owned by someone other than your employer, you have a potential third party action against the driver and vehicle owner for damages, including pain and suffering. It sounds as if you have already notified your employer and opened a Workers' Comp claim. Workers' Comp will pay for medical expenses,...

    I am sorry to hear about the car accident and hope everyone is able to make a full and fast recovery. Everyone injured in the collision automatically qualified for New York No Fault insurance, which covers medical expenses, lost wages and related expenses up to $50,000. If an injured party has damages beyond the No Fault coverage, they can pursue a claim. To do so, they will need to prove that their injuries meet the New York State definition of a serious injury. In New York State, the...

    The timing of when to file a suit will vary from case to case. No matter what approach an attorney takes, he or she should explain that approach to you and answer any questions you may have. In all cases, the attorney must file before the statue of limitations for that type of case expires. Let me offer you some examples of how we handle filing lawsuits in our firm. For most personal injury cases (including car accidents and slip and fall cases), we prefer to complete our investigation and...

    I am sorry to hear about your slip and fall. You are doing the right thing by going to the doctor today. It is not too late to take action. You should notify the building supervisor or management about the incident. You may have grounds to seek compensation for your injury. You would have to prove that you landlord caused your injuries due to negligence maintenance of the foyer. You would also need to show that you suffered injuries because of that negligence. I would recommend that you...

    I am sorry to hear about your friend’s situation and the injuries they suffered. I hope they are receiving the medical treat that they need. Your friends may have grounds to bring a claim against the nightclub and the people who assaulted them. These cases tend to be complex with many factors that can affect the ability to prevail with a claim. Here are some examples of the issues you need to address: What promises of safety did the night club make? What obligations did the night club have...

    I represent many pedestrians struck by motor vehicles. If we settle a case for a client, the client must sign a release before the insurance company will release the settlement money. The release says that in exchange for the settlement payment, the client will drop all claims and will no longer pursue a lawsuit. If your insurance company settled this lawsuit and the plaintiff signed a release, then the plaintiff can no longer pursue a claim against you. You should speak to the insurance...

    I am sorry to hear about your husband’s fall and injury. Your husband may very well have a claim against the gym to recover for damages. To prevail in a slip and fall case, you need to demonstrate that the gym’s negligence caused your husband to fall and that the fall caused his injuries. It is clear that the fall caused his injury and he may have other damages such as lost wages and medical expenses. The question will be if the gym was negligent. Proving liability in cases involving wet...

    I am sorry to hear about your injuries and hope you make a full recovery. Your posting says you do not know why you fell. To pursue a case against the Transit Authority, you would need to show that they caused your fall. If you cannot show that the Transit Authority was negligent, then you do not have the basis for a claim. If they were negligent , then you will need to file a Notice of Claim against the Transit Authority within 90 days of the incident. I hope this helps.

    Yes, the passenger can sue you for damages he or she suffered. If you have not done so, you should immediately contact your insurance company. Just because you are sued does not mean that you or your insurance company will have to pay a court award. You live in New York State so I assume that this incident occurred in New York. There are three parts to all New York State motor vehicle cases: • Proving negligence of the other driver or drivers • Proving damages suffered by the plaintiff •...
