Are you asking “Can I Sue?” Here Are the Basics from a Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer

Our Long Island accident attorneys get asked all the time, “Do I have a case.”

In general, anytime you or someone in your family suffers a serious injury or dies as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may have a case. There are many factors involved, however, which is why it is important to talk to a qualified personal injury lawyer about the specific details of your case.

Some questions to ask if you are thinking of suing after being injured:

  • Was my injury the result of someone else’s negligence?
  • Did a person or business either have knowledge of a dangerous condition that caused my accident, or should have been aware the dangerous condition?
  • Did I suffer an injury as a result of the accident or did I pretty much leave with only a few bruises and scratches?

Sometimes there may be more than one party responsible for your accident, in which case you can sue all of them to recover your damages.

Many people also want to know what their case is worth. This is dependent on the nature and extent of your injuries, your current and projected medical costs, lost wages and other expenses you might have incurred. A lawyer will help document your injuries and expenses and detail your pain and suffering to help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
