Queens Personal Injury Lawyer

Injuries happen every day in Queens, New York. While some injuries are a part of life, this doesn’t apply to ones caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions. These injuries are often preventable, and you shouldn’t be the one to suffer simply because someone doesn’t care about how their behavior can affect others. Everyone has a duty of care to help prevent injuries from accidents or incidents from occurring.

An example of a breach of duty of care is when a healthcare provider fails to provide adequate care to a patient. The lack of care leads to an illness worsening, injuries, or even a fatality. If another healthcare professional can provide proper care under similar circumstances, the original healthcare provider may have failed to meet a recognized standard of care, which can also mean they acted negligently. Another example is if a driver is intoxicated and causes a vehicle accident, resulting in injury or death. The driver acted negligently the moment they got behind the wheel.

In situations like these and other similar ones, you, as either the injured party or the family of the victim, may be able to file a claim to recover compensation for any injuries, property damage, or other losses sustained in the accident. If you or a loved one suffers injuries or even death due to someone’s negligence, Morgan & Morgan may be able to help with your case. We are the nation’s largest personal injury law firm and can review your case for free. Just contact one of our specialists at Morgan & Morgan.

To learn more about the merits of your personal injury case, please fill out and submit the free case evaluation form. One of our specialists will review your case to determine if your claim is viable. If we decide to work on your injury case, we can work to help ensure you receive full and fair compensation.

  • What Kind of Cases Can a Queens Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?

    Our lawyers at Morgan & Morgan can handle various personal injury cases. The term “personal injury” is broad and refers to damages caused by someone’s negligence. Some of the common causes of injuries our attorneys routinely handle include:

    • Car accidents
    • Slip and falls
    • Medical malpractice
    • Defective products
    • Premises liability
    • Wrongful death
    • Workplace accidents and incidents

    Your injuries may not only be physical. You may also be entitled to compensation for non-economic damages like emotional, mental, or psychological trauma. An example is if you’re the victim of defamation. Your injuries aren’t physical. Instead, you can suffer emotional harm and have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit.

    In most cases, we can help you fight for compensation if your injuries are the result of someone’s recklessness or negligent actions. To learn more about the types of personal injury cases we handle at Morgan & Morgan, head to our Practice Areas page. If you’re still unsure if your case is worth the short amount of time it takes to complete our case evaluation form, just remember you have nothing to lose and possibly plenty to gain.

  • When Should You Hire a Queens Personal Injury Lawyer?

    If you sustain injuries in an accident, it pays to have a personal injury attorney on your side. Your attorney will work to protect your legal rights, even if you’ve completed and submitted an insurance claim. The insurance company may be offering a low settlement or dragging its feet in resolving your claim. Some other reasons why it’s a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer include:

    • If you're not sure if you have a valid case.
    • If you lost a loved one in an accident or incident caused by negligence or recklessness.
    • If more than one party might have been responsible for the injuries you or a loved one sustained.
  • Is There a Deadline for Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer in Queens?

    There are deadlines for filing a personal injury claim in Queens. New York state law gives accident victims three years to file a claim. The deadline starts on the date of the accident. However, if you’re filing a medical malpractice claim, the deadline is two years and six months from the incident date or when you last received treatment for the illness or injury relating to your claim.

    Civil assault claims have a shorter filing deadline. You only have one year to consult an attorney and file a claim. If you’re the surviving family member of an accident victim who perishes, you have two years from the date of their death to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

    Since the statute of limitations varies according to the type of accident or incident, it’s always best to schedule a consultation with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

  • What Damages Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help You Recover?

    The damages your personal injury attorney can help you recover vary depending on the particulars of your case. Remember, every case is unique, and what applies to one may not apply to another.

    With that being said, some common damages our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan help our clients recover can include but are not limited to the following,

    • Medical expenses (current and future)
    • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
    • Pain and suffering
    • Property damage
    • Emotional distress
    • Rehabilitation and therapy costs
    • Punitive damages (in cases of gross negligence)

    If your case is eligible for punitive damages, this type of compensation is different from economic and non-economic damages. Punitive damages are awarded by the civil court judge or jury and only apply when gross negligence caused the accident. They are used as a type of punishment and to help deter others from engaging in similar reckless behaviors.

  • Can You Still Recover Damages if You Were Partly at Fault for the Injury?

    New York is a pure comparative fault state and this means you may be entitled to receive some compensation for your injuries, even if you’re 99% to blame for the accident. However, the amount of compensation you receive will reflect your percentage of fault.

    For example, if you’re 50% to blame for the accident, your compensation amount will be reduced by the same percentage. If you’re unsure of your percentage of blame or if it’s worth filing a personal injury claim, contact Morgan & Morgan for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

  • What if Someone Died in an Accident or Incident?

    You may have a wrongful death claim if someone has tragically died in the accident. A skilled personal injury lawyer in Queens can help surviving family members pursue compensation for funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of income, emotional suffering, and other damages they may be entitled to resulting from losing a loved one.

  • What is the Average Personal Injury Compensation in Queens?

    The amount of compensation an accident victim can receive varies on a case-by-case basis. Every injury case is unique. While there isn’t an average compensation amount, Morgan & Morgan can help you recover full and fair compensation for your damages. We have successfully recovered over $20 billion in damages for our clients and can help ensure you receive the maximum amount. After reviewing your case, we’ll be better able to provide you with examples of average compensation amounts.

  • What Parties Can Be Held Liable for a Personal Injury in Queens?

    When it comes to determining liability, any negligent party can be held responsible for your injuries and losses. This includes but is not limited to the following:

    • Individuals for their actions
    • Businesses and corporations
    • Government entities
    • Property owners
    • Healthcare providers
  • Will Your Personal Injury Lawyer Represent You in Court?

    Something that makes Morgan and Morgan stand out in the personal injury field is we're never afraid to take the at-fault party to court if they refuse to settle out of court. We always aim to settle out of court since it’s usually the fastest way for our clients to receive compensation for their injuries and losses.

    Settling out of court means we won't have to worry about court backlogs that tend to delay the entire legal process, and importantly, both parties can reach a fair resolution without too much conflict. That results in you being able to focus on physical and emotional healing faster than if we go to trial.
