Justice in Personal Injury Cases in New York
The justice system is geared to address injury claims in financial terms.
Essentially, the more serious the injuries, the higher the award will
be. In the state of New York, it is also possible to pursue punitive damages
- those that are awarded to punish the negligent party. The standard of
proof is very strict when pursuing punitive damages, and this type of
award is considered to be an extraordinary remedy that can only be awarded
in "singularly rare cases" that include "egregious conduct."
These are intentional acts.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not cover intentional acts, and getting
the actual compensation is often next to impossible. The burden of proof
that is necessary is "clear, unequivocal and convincing evidence."
Most personal injury cases that are successful will recover both economic
and non-economic damages. All medical bills, hospital bills, nursing care,
rehabilitation, lost income from work, predicted future financial losses,
as well as pain and suffering or others.
