Personal injury cases, whether medical malpractice, an accident injury case, product liability, or premises liability, are most often resolved prior to trial. If the case cannot be resolved through negotiations with the insurance company that has insured the responsible party, the claim can be taken to civil court for resolution. In either case, the manner in which the case is prepared is of crucial importance.
Working with Bronson Law Offices, P.C.
Bronson Law Offices, P.C. prepares each and every case with the care necessary to take a case to trial. A careful and thorough investigation into the situation, and the gathering of all supporting evidence to fully establish the act of negligence, is a vital part of the process of achieving success in a personal injury case. It is advised that in any dispute regarding a claim for damages, you have the highest quality litigator fighting for you and your interests — it does make a difference. A personal injury case is not the time to try out an attorney that is new in practice or has little trial experience.
Some of the types of injury claims that will require high-quality legal counsel include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Birth injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Hospital errors
- Doctor errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
Cases in which a permanent injury is the result of a negligent act must be carefully managed by a true legal professional. Not only will the costs of care and treatment be very high and continue for the duration of the victim's life, but there are also extensive personal damages such as pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and others, based upon the details of the specific case.
Justice in Personal Injury Cases
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, pain and suffering, or others.
If there has been an act of criminal negligence and you or a loved one has been seriously injured or died, it is vital that you contact the firm without any delay. The proof may require extensive documentation, statements, and evidence, all of which can become more difficult to obtain as time passes. The firm will act quickly to gather and preserve any and all supporting evidence for an injury claim and will pursue the maximum possible under current state law.
