How We Can Help

If you have been injured as a result of the reckless, negligent, and careless actions of another party, you can file a personal injury claim for damages. Individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies have a legal responsibility to act in a manner that does not place others at unreasonable risk of harm or injury. If a party acts negligently and causes injury to another person as a result, he or she can be held liable for damages.

Help with Filing an Injury Claim

At Proner & Proner in New York City, one of our personal injury attorneys can help you file a claim if you have been injured at the hands of another party. In the tragic event of a loved one’s death, we can also assist you in filing a wrongful death claim. Personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. Payment for our legal representation is contingent on our reaching a successful case resolution in the form of either a verdict or settlement on your behalf. In the event of a successful case resolution, we will take a pre-determined percentage of the recovery as payment. If we do not obtain financial compensation on your behalf, you owe us nothing for our services, though you may be responsible for case costs, such as filing fees. Learn about our process.

Help with Every Aspect of Personal Injury Law

Every personal injury case is different. Personal injury law covers a variety of legal areas, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, product liability, premises liability, and medical malpractice. The amount of financial compensation you may be eligible for depends on the circumstances of your specific case. However, the plaintiff can typically file for financial compensation relating to medical costs, rehabilitation costs, loss of wages, inhibited earning capacity, and pain and suffering. In the event of a wrongful death, the victim’s family may also be able to obtain compensation for funerary costs, loss of income, and loss of companionship. There are statutes of limitations in the state of New York that place time limits on filing personal injury lawsuits. If you or someone you love has been injured as a result of the reckless and negligent actions of another party, we urge you to contact a personal injury attorney at Proner & Proner as soon as possible.

Preparing for a personal injury lawsuit can be a time-consuming process. If you hesitate to seek legal counsel, it can seriously jeopardize your chances of being justly compensated for your suffering. If you were partly at fault, your burden of responsibility in the accident will be taken into account if and when we take on your case. Bearing part of the responsibility of the accident can limit the amount of compensation you obtain in a settlement or verdict, but it does not automatically eliminate your eligibility for compensation.
