New York Personal Injury Law FAQ

Get answers to our most frequently asked questions about personal injury.

A personal injury case is a legal dispute between two sides: a person who has suffered from an accident or injury, and another person/entity that might bear legal responsibility for injury or harm.  

Causes for personal injury may include negligence, intentional misconduct, reckless behavior and more. The aim of a personal injury case is to prove responsibility and recover monetary compensation for medical bills and other expenses related to the accident. 

Some of the factors that are considered in awarding damages for personal injury include: 

  • Nature of damage 
  • Extent of damage 
  • Duration of injury 
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Potential future lost earnings 

Most initial consultations in NYC are free of charge. At your consultation, you present all details related to your injury, ask questions and discuss fees. 

At Spar & Bernstein, we offer a free consultation where we get to know you and the details of your personal injury case. We explain the next steps to obtain the compensation you deserve. 

A personal injury lawyer can help you secure financial compensation for any personal injury you have suffered.  

Based on extensive knowledge of federal and personal injury laws, your lawyer can: 

  • Analyze your case 
  • Investigate the facts
  • Gather evidence
  • Interview doctors 
  • Prepare your case  
  • Recommend legal strategies 
  • Represent you in front of the court and insurance companies
  • Evaluate settlement offers 
  • Pursue the highest monetary compensation 

Though often an inseparable part of our daily routine, social media can negatively impact your personal injury claim. 

Your posts could accidentally reveal information about: 

  • Your lifestyle before and after your injury 
  • Your current physical condition and abilities 
  • Contradictory statements 
  • Relationships between witnesses 
  • Witness influence 

The opposing party may demand social media information in discovery, if your posts are relevant to your personal injury case.  

We recommend that you refrain from using your social media until the case is closed. 

The standard time limit for filing a personal injury claim is three years after the injury, as stated in section 214 of the New York Civil Practice Law & Rules.  

This means that you have three years to prepare the initial paperwork and file it in court. 

You have the right to file a personal injury claim without fear of deportation, regardless of your immigration status. At Spar & Bernstein, our attorneys are highly experienced in both personal injury and immigration. Our team will represent you and handle all of the details of your case, regardless of your status in the U.S. 

The amount of time it takes to settle a personal injury lawsuit varies based on several factors, including the nature and complexity of your case, the jurisdiction, the liability, insurance company and more. 

Typically, it can take one to three years until a settlement is negotiated. 

The personal injury claim process includes several stages: 

  • Hiring a legal company to represent you
  • Initiating a legal case 
  • The discovery process where both parties exchange information, such as police and medical records, security footage and more 
  • Court motions 
  • Settlement negotiations 
  • A trial, which includes jury selection, opening arguments, witnesses’ examination, closing statements, jury instruction and deliberation, and verdict
  • Verdict appeal if necessary 

At Spar & Bernstein, our experienced team handles every stage of your case, from start to finish, allowing you to have peace of mind while we fight on your behalf.
