Maximum Compensation for New York City Crash

Maximum Compensation for New York City Crash

If you seek the maximum compensation for New York City crash, you may need a car accident lawyer at David Resnick. You may be entitled to recover compensation for the injuries caused by the accident. This may include both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages represent out-of-pocket expenses such as medical bills and lost wages, while noneconomic damages are intended to compensate a victim for the pain and suffering caused by the accident.

Because New York has a “no-fault” insurance law, not all victims are entitled to pain and suffering damages. The no-fault laws require a victim’s own liability insurance provider to compensate the victim for economic damages up to a certain point regardless of who was to blame for the collision. If the victim suffered “serious” injuries in the crash, then the victim may also be entitled to pursue additional economic damages as well as noneconomic damages through a traditional personal injury lawsuit.

Contrary to what many people believe, there is no set formula for calculating the amount of compensation a victim is entitled to in a car accident case. There are, however, numerous factors that can affect a victim’s recovery. The New York City car accident attorneys at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., understand how each of these factors work together to maximize a victim’s recovery.

 

Pain and Suffering - What is Included

The car accident attorneys at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., understand the emotional and psychological pain and suffering caused by serious personal injuries. We are dedicated to ensuring that car crash victims are fully and fairly compensated for all of their injuries –physical, financial and emotional.

Car accident victims frequently suffer pain as a result of a physical injury and emotional trauma as a result of the experience. A broken bone, for instance, is a physical injury that would likely cause the victim to suffer pain. The trauma of being involved in a collision and being hurt often results in stress, anxiety and psychological problems.

In a personal injury lawsuit, the law distinguishes between what are termed “economic damages” and “noneconomic damages.” Economic damages are those that can be easily quantified and are typically out-of-pocket expenses related to an accident. Medical bills and lost wages are examples of economic damages.

Noneconomic damages are much harder to quantify, as they represent what most people think of as the “pain and suffering” portion of an award or settlement. The pain you felt as a result of a broken bone or the emotional effect that the accident had on you are things that the law attempts to provide compensation for as part of a noneconomic damages award or settlement.

Although typically referred to as “pain and suffering” damages, there are actually other injuries that can be compensated as well.

Things such as fright, anxiety, worry, apprehension, humiliation and embarrassment may also be compensable. In addition, injuries related to disfigurement or deformity, mental distress and an inability to perform your normal work or enjoy your everyday life may also be part of a pain and suffering award or settlement.
