Types of Accident Claims Our Flushing Personal Injury Attorneys Handle
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly 136,000 lives were claimed by unintentional injuries in the past few years. Nonfatal injuries are even more numerous, with approximately 43 million emergency department visits reported the same year.
Unfortunately, major accidents take place all the time, especially in densely-populated neighborhoods like Flushing, where car crashes and pedestrian accidents are commonplace. However, with assistance from a highly experienced and knowledgeable accident attorney, you may be able to recover compensation. Perhaps even more importantly, an attorney can fight to see that justice is served for you and your loved ones.
At the law offices of Sullivan & Galleshaw, our renowned and accomplished legal team has worked on a wide variety of personal injury claims and lawsuits in Queens. Our firm can handle the following types of cases for you.
Car accidents may occur for a variety of reasons, from speeding to a driver being distracted because they are texting. Despite how your car accident might occur, our firm is here to help you file a claim against the negligent party responsible for your injuries.
The injuries you sustain in a car accident are typically correlated where the other vehicle hit your vehicle. For example, many rear-end car accidents result in a victim suffering from whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a person’s head and neck swing forward rapidly and snap back into place. This injury could cause a person to suffer from severe pain in their neck area and a lack of mobility in their neck.
Similarly, a side impact or T-bone accident is more likely to cause a person to suffer lacerations from broken glass or even broken ribs due to the force of the impact.
One of the most dangerous types of car crashes is a head-on crash. Head-on collisions usually occur because a driver drifted from their lane into oncoming traffic and struck another driver that could not react quickly enough. These accidents are so dangerous because occupants of either car can hit hard surfaces like steering wheels and dashboards upon impact. If a driver or passenger is not wearing their seatbelt, there is a possibility that they can crash through the windshield.
If you were involved in a car accident while riding as a passenger in a ridesharing service, your injury case might become even more complicated. While rideshare companies like Lyft and Uber have insurance that covers passengers, the insurance may not cover your medical expenses and lost wages if your injuries were extensive.
Medical malpractice is when a healthcare worker fails to provide you with adequate care resulting in a serious injury. There are multiple types of medical malpractice claims that our firm handles from surgical errors to a failure to diagnose.
Infant birth injuries are one area of law that is experiencing more cases due to improper procedures used by physicians and other medical practitioners. No parent wants to know that their child was seriously injured during delivery. However, some doctors may not exercise sufficient care during the delivery process. If your child was the victim of a birth injury, you should speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
Premises liability refers to an area of law where a property owner fails to correct a defect on their property, which causes another person to be injured. Slip and falls are the most common type of premises liability claim. This is likely because a slip and fall injury can occur practically anywhere.
If a property owner does not correct a safety hazard on their property, they can be held liable for an injury to a guest or even a trespasser.
Our firm handles a variety of other cases that are not listed above. To learn more about what to do if you were seriously injured in an accident, continue reading and speak with an experienced NYC personal injury attorney.
What to Do if a Family Member Was Injured in Queens
Regardless of whether the underlying cause is a car crash, an explosion, an act of medical malpractice, or any other disastrous event, an accident resulting from negligence or recklessness can produce catastrophic, disabling, and sometimes fatal injuries. In addition to burdening the victim with terrible pain and suffering, such injuries permanently impact the victim’s ability to earn income in order to support themselves and their loved ones. Victims can develop anxiety, PTSD, depression, or extreme phobias, further affecting their personal and romantic relationships.
Our Flushing accident attorneys fight to recover compensation for the financial, physical, and emotional wounds that serious injuries leave behind. We will analyze your case from every angle to build a legal strategy that is designed to maximize the value of your claim. We understand that no amount of compensation can truly make up for a life-altering injury; however, what compensation can do is provide financial security in the aftermath of a disaster. You shouldn’t have to struggle with medical debt because of an accident you did not cause.
