Damages You Can Recover in Your Pedestrian Injury Case in Islip

After your pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to a range of recoverable damages. Our legal team will analyze your case to determine which of the following losses you can seek compensation for:

Economic Damages

Your economic damages are those that you paid for out-of-pocket. They generally include:

  • Your medical expenses, including the cost of hospital stays, emergency room care, transportation in an ambulance, doctor’s appointments, and ongoing treatments you’ll need
  • Lost income, if your injuries stop you from working and earning your paychecks
  • Reduced earning capacity, if you had to accept a lower-paying job to accommodate your injuries
  • Property damage, if any of your personal items were damaged or destroyed in the pedestrian collision

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are your intangible losses. Our team will assign a value to these damages to help you seek compensation for them:

  • Pain and suffering, to address your physical pain
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, if your injuries stop you from enjoying all the things you once did
  • Mental anguish for the emotional distress your accident caused, such as anxiety or depression

Wrongful Death Damages

If you lost someone you love in a pedestrian accident, our team offers our condolences to you and your family. We know you need time to grieve, so we will manage your case for you and seek compensation for:

  • The costs of your loved one’s funeral, burial, or cremation
  • Loss of services the decedent provided
  • Loss of parental care and guidance, if the decedent had children
  • Medical expenses related to your loved one’s fatal illness or injury

Only your loved one’s personal representative can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party. We can help you identify who the personal representative is if you aren’t sure.

You Need to File Your Pedestrian Injury Lawsuit on Time According to the Statute of Limitations in Islip

In Islip, NY, accident victims have a limited amount of time to file their lawsuits. That’s because each state sets a statute of limitations that determines how much time you have to file your case.

According to CVP § 214, you generally have three years to file your personal injury lawsuit against the party who caused your injury. Per EPT § 5-4.1, you usually only have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Getting an early start on your case offers many benefits. It allows you to ensure your case is filed within the statute of limitations, and it gives our law firm time to thoroughly investigate your case. If you wait too long to file, time-sensitive evidence may disappear, and you could lose your chance to file. Call us today to get started on your case.

Proving Negligence in Your Pedestrian Accident Case

All drivers must exercise caution on the roads. Whether they need to double-check blind spots or slow down in poor weather, drivers are expected to keep other road users safe.

If another party’s negligence caused your accident, we can seek compensation for you. However, we must prove their negligence by satisfying the following four elements:

  • Duty of care: The at-fault party had a responsibility to keep you safe while you were walking.
  • Breach of duty: They did not maintain their duty of care. Instead, they displayed negligence by driving while drunk, distracted, or in an otherwise unsafe manner.
  • Causation: The at-fault party’s action or inaction led to your accident and the injuries you suffered.
  • Damages: You suffered damages like pain and suffering and medical expenses because of the at-fault party’s negligence.

Our team will gather evidence including medical records, police reports, and accident scene photos and videos to prove you are owed compensation.
