Who May Be Liable for Your Damages in a Long Island Personal Injury Claim

In a Long Island personal injury claim, several parties may be liable for your damages, depending on the specific circumstances of your case. Identifying all potentially liable parties is crucial for maximizing your compensation and ensuring that you have the resources necessary to recover from your injuries. Some of the parties who may be liable in your claim include:

  • The at-fault individual: If another person’s negligence or wrongdoing directly caused your injuries, they may be held liable for your damages. Examples include a distracted driver who caused a car accident or a property owner who failed to fix a hazardous condition that led to your slip and fall.
  • Employers: If you were injured by someone who was acting within the scope of their employment (such as a delivery driver or construction worker), their employer may be held vicariously liable for your damages under the doctrine of respondeat superior.
  • Property owners: In premises liability cases, property owners may be liable if they failed to maintain a reasonably safe environment for visitors or failed to warn of known hazards. This can apply to accidents in stores, restaurants, apartment buildings, and other properties.
  • Product manufacturers: If you were injured by a defective or dangerous product, the manufacturer, distributor, or seller of that product may be held liable under product liability laws. This can include defective auto parts, faulty appliances, or contaminated food items.
  • Government entities: If your injuries were caused by the negligence of a government agency or employee (such as a city bus driver or a poorly maintained public sidewalk), you may be able to hold the government entity liable. However, claims against government entities are subject to special rules and shorter deadlines.
  • Multiple parties: In some cases, multiple parties may share liability for your injuries. For example, in a multi-vehicle car accident, several drivers may be found at fault, or in a construction accident, the property owner, general contractor, and subcontractor may all bear some responsibility.

Your Long Island personal injury lawyer will thoroughly investigate your case to identify all potentially liable parties and develop a strategy for pursuing compensation from each of them. By holding all responsible parties accountable, your attorney can help you secure the full and fair compensation you need to rebuild your life after a serious injury.

Types of Long Island Personal Injury Claims We Handle

Trantolo & Trantolo’s Long Island personal injury lawyers have experience handling a wide variety of personal injury claims, including:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents are a common sight on Long Island’s busy roadways. Whether your accident involved a motorcycle, passenger car, or commercial truck, Trantolo & Trantolo’s car accident lawyers can help. Our dedicated personal injury team can help you seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost income, and more. Let our team help you pursue the negligent party liable for your motor vehicle accident.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists have minimal protection from the force of a collision. As a result, bicycle accident victims are prone to serious and even catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury, neck injury, and spinal damage. Trantolo & Trantolo’s bicycle accident attorneys can help you pursue justice and compensation following a bicycle crash.

Construction Accidents

Construction accidents are common on Long Island and across the city. Scaffolding accidents, falls from a height, electrocution, and heavy machinery mishaps all lead to high injury and fatality rates for construction workers.

Trantolo & Trantolo’s construction accident attorneys can help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits for on-the-job construction injuries. We can also help you file a personal injury lawsuit for construction site injuries involving a third party.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can be life-altering. Not only can they cause severe lacerations, scarring, and disfigurement, but dog bites can also sever tendons, crush bones, and damage critical blood vessels. Even with prompt treatment, dog bites can result in life-threatening infections.

Per New York dog laws, owners must maintain control of their animals at all times. If they fail in this duty of care, they can be held responsible for the injuries caused by the dog. Speak with our dog bite attorneys in Long Island to learn more.

Product Liability

If you sustained injuries or fell ill due to a defective product, you could file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor, or advertiser. Our mass torts attorneys in Long Island have extensive experience taking on giant companies and insurance carriers on behalf of our clients. Whether you were injured due to a defective car component or a dangerous drug, Trantolo & Trantolo is here to help.

Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing home employees must adhere to strict standards for patient care. When they are negligent in their duty of care and a patient suffers injuries or illness as a result, the nursing home can be held accountable. Our Long Island nursing home negligence attorneys can help you pursue justice and fair compensation for nursing home negligence or patient abuse.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners and managers have a responsibility to maintain safe premises. This means ensuring that walkways, stairways, ramps, and other areas are free of hazards. If you tripped, slipped, or fell due to a hazard in a retail space, commercial property, or residential property, you may have grounds to file a premises liability claim. A slip and fall accident lawyer from Trantolo & Trantolo can help.

Workers’ Compensation

When you suffer a work injury, whether you were on the job site or off-site performing work-related duties, you could file a workers’ compensation claim to recover medical costs and lost income. Our workers’ compensation attorneys can help you gather evidence and file an initial claim. If your benefits are reduced or denied, we can also assist you with the appeal process to help you secure the benefits you deserve for your workplace injury.

After an accident or injury due to another’s negligence, you may not know where to turn. If you have been hurt and need legal representation, reach out to our personal injury attorneys on Long Island. We can help you seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Losses You Could Pursue Following a Personal Injury on Long Island

Every Long Island personal injury claim is unique, so the damages you can seek vary based on your case’s details. Damages we could recover on your behalf include:

Medical Costs

Medical bills can pile up while you work to recover from your injuries. In addition to emergency medical care, doctor’s visits, and physical therapy, your medical expenses may extend to prosthetics, medical devices, and medication to treat your injuries. Catastrophic injuries that result in long-term or permanent disability may require in-home nursing care and domestic assistance, which you could also include in your claim.

Loss of Income

Your medical treatments may take time away from your regular workday. Hospitalization, surgical procedures, and physical therapy can all keep you from returning to your job as soon as you would like. Some severe injuries could prevent you from returning to your work altogether. Whether your injuries cost you work hours, career advancement, or your private business, you can recover those financial losses from the at-fault party.

Property Damage

You could also recover financial compensation for the cost of property repair or replacement. For example, if you were in a car accident, you could seek compensation for car repairs. You should not have to foot the bill for someone else’s negligence. Let our attorneys help you seek fair compensation for your losses.

Pain and Suffering

In addition to the monetary losses you suffered due to the responsible party’s negligence, you could suffer from non-monetary losses. These intangible non-economic damages include the subjective effects of an injury, such as:

  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Diminished quality of life

Non-economic compensatory damages cover a wide range of experiences and are highly subjective. Trantolo & Trantolo’s Long Island personal injury attorneys can review your case and determine the potential compensation you could pursue.

Ways Our Long Island Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You

The award-winning personal injury attorneys at Trantolo & Trantolo have successfully handled complex personal injury cases since 1938.

When you sign a contract with Trantolo & Trantolo, you gain a team of legal professionals who will gladly handle every aspect of your case. Our legal team can:

Gather Evidence to Support Your Personal Injury Claim

We know that the quality of your evidence can directly affect your chances of a fair settlement. Our dedicated personal injury lawyers in Long Island leave no stone unturned when it comes to compiling evidence to prove your case. Evidence we could incorporate into your claim includes:

  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Expert testimony
  • Medical bills
  • Pay stubs and financial statements
  • Photos and videos of the accident scene

Determine the Liable Party

We thoroughly review all the evidence to establish the cause of your injuries and determine who is at fault. Based on this information, we can decide where to file an insurance claim or who to name in your personal injury lawsuit. We will then submit a demand letter or file a legal complaint to begin the claims process.

Respond to Calls and Emails

While you focus on recovering your health, our team can field calls from insurance adjusters and legal counsel for the responsible party. We can respond to messages, submit documentation, and begin negotiations to establish the monetary compensation you are owed.

Negotiate With Insurance Companies

Many personal injury claims involve an insurance company. For example, car accident claims often go through the at-fault driver’s insurance. A slip-and-fall accident claim may be referred to the property owner’s liability insurance. Part of our job as your legal representative is to find these companies, file a claim, and negotiate a fair settlement with them.

File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

While many personal injury claims settle out of court, a lawsuit can show the insurance company you are serious about seeking reasonable compensation. We can file a lawsuit within the New York statute of limitations and keep your case on track. If negotiations are not successful, our trial lawyers can represent your interests in the courtroom. Our team does not hesitate to pursue injury cases all the way to trial if that’s what it takes.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, contact Trantolo & Trantolo and Let Our Family, Help Your Family. We’ll handle the legal details while you focus on getting better.

Mistakes a Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Avoid in Your Claim

A Long Island personal injury lawyer can help you avoid several common mistakes that can jeopardize your claim and reduce your chances of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries and damages. Some of the key mistakes your attorney can help you avoid include:

  • Failing to seek medical attention: Not seeking prompt medical care after an accident can make it difficult to prove the extent and causation of your injuries. Your lawyer will advise you to get a thorough medical evaluation and follow your doctor’s treatment plan to protect your health and strengthen your claim.
  • Providing a recorded statement to the insurance company: Insurance adjusters may pressure you to provide a recorded statement about the accident and your injuries. However, your statements could be used against you later. Your attorney will handle all communication with the insurance company to protect your rights.
  • Accepting a low settlement offer: Insurance companies often make low initial settlement offers in the hopes that claimants will accept them without negotiation. Your lawyer will assess the true value of your claim and fight for a fair settlement that covers all your damages.
  • Missing important deadlines: Personal injury claims in New York are subject to strict deadlines, known as statutes of limitations. Your attorney will ensure that your claim is filed within the appropriate timeframe to preserve your right to seek compensation.
  • Failing to gather sufficient evidence: Strong evidence is crucial for building a successful personal injury claim. Your lawyer will thoroughly investigate your accident, gather evidence such as police reports, medical records, and witness statements, and consult with experts to strengthen your case.
  • Posting about your accident on social media: Insurance companies may monitor your social media activity for posts that could undermine your claim. Your attorney will advise you to refrain from discussing your accident or injuries online.
  • Signing documents without legal review: The insurance company may present you with various documents, such as medical authorization forms or settlement agreements. Your lawyer will review any documents before you sign them to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
  • Failing to account for future damages: Your settlement should not only cover your current expenses but also any anticipated future costs, such as ongoing medical treatment or lost earning capacity. Your attorney will work with experts to calculate the full extent of your damages.

By working with our experienced Long Island personal injury lawyers, you can avoid these common mistakes and put yourself in the best position to secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.
