Compensation in NYC Personal Injury Cases

If you have been injured because of another person’s negligent actions, whether your injury was caused by a motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident, or trucking accident or any other type of accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Proner & Proner, our personal injury lawyers have helped numerous clients in New York City obtain the financial recompense to which they are entitled.

Information on Manhattan Personal Injury Claims

If you are the victim of another person’s negligence or carelessness, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit. You can potentially collect for medical bills, lost wages, permanent injuries, disabilities, punitive damages or the death of a loved one. In a strong personal injury case, our lawyers must first prove that an injury (not necessarily physical) has occurred. Also, it must be proven that the defendant is responsible for those injuries, through an act of carelessness, negligence or maliciousness.

In the event of a death within the family, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Victims in wrongful death cases should not go it alone. It is important to seek an accomplished personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are businesses and, as such, do not have your best interests at heart. The insurance company collects as many premiums as possible and pays out as few claims as possible. Insurance companies have teams of experts, lawyers, paralegals, claim adjustors, etc. who are trained to minimize or outright deny your claim. At Proner & Proner, our experienced personal injury lawyers in New York City know how to work with—and against—insurance companies and have successfully settled many personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims.

In most situations, victims of personal injury benefit from retaining an attorney. Clients should retain a lawyer with experience specifically in litigating personal injury lawsuits. Our New York City-based law firm will deal with the insurance company, your creditors, the medical providers and your employer, allowing you to concentrate on getting your health and family back in order.
