What Damages Can You Recover in an Oyster Bay Auto Accident Case?

The damages you can recover depend on the details of your case, as each car accident is different. The accident lawyers at our firm will listen to you as you explain what led to your injuries. We’ll collect evidence to back up your claims and prove your right to compensation.

Many accident victims are entitled to compensation for their economic and non-economic losses. Your economic losses are those that cost you money out-of-pocket. Meanwhile, non-economic damages are intangible and do not come with a fixed price. Our personal injury lawyers will assign a value to these losses to ensure you seek fair compensation.

Your settlement may include compensation for:

Your Recoverable Economic Damages

Economic damages you could recover include:

  • Property damage, such as the costs of repairing your car or replacing any other personal items that were lost or damaged
  • Medical expenses, including costs of emergency transport, hospital stays, doctor’s appointments, medical testing, and prescription medications
  • Lost income for the paychecks you missed while you were recovering from the accident
  • Reduced earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from earning the same amount of money you did before the accident

Non-Economic Damages You Suffered

You can also pursue compensation for your non-economic damages, including:

  • Pain and suffering, for the physical pain you endured because of your injuries
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, if your injuries prevent you from participating in pastimes you could once enjoy
  • Emotional distress, as many accident victims suffer from collision-related anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and other forms of mental anguish

We Do Not Charge Car Accident Victims in Oyster Bay Anything Upfront

When you hire our legal team, we get started on your case at no upfront costs. We operate on a contingency-fee basis, which means you only pay attorney fees after our team wins or settles your case. You’ll never pay us anything out of pocket, as the payment we receive comes out of your settlement.

We also provide free initial consultations, giving you a chance to learn more about us without any financial risk. During this complimentary conversation, we discuss the details of your case, provide legal advice, and answer any questions you have.

Get Started on Your Oyster Bay Auto Accident Lawsuit Right Away

According to CVP § 214, you generally only have three years to submit a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party. You have even less time to file a wrongful death lawsuit, as the statute of limitations, EPT § 5-4.1, says you have two years to file. Some exceptions could extend the deadline that applies to your case.

Though having a couple of years to file your case might make you think you have a lot of time, we recommend you get started on your case right away. Once the statute of limitations expires you might not have any legal options to hold the at-fault party accountable. To avoid running into issues filing your case, let us start handling it today.

Who Is Responsible for Your Car Crash in Oyster Bay?

Your lawyer will investigate your case to prove liability. In Oyster Bay car accidents, the liable party could be:

  • A drunk driver
  • A distracted driver
  • An aggressive driver
  • A rideshare vehicle driver
  • The driver of a large vehicle such as a semi-truck
  • Multiple vehicle operators

We can prove liability by satisfying the following elements of negligence:

  • Duty of care: The at-fault party had a responsibility to keep you safe.
  • Breach of duty: They did not maintain their duty of care, instead displaying negligence.
  • Causation: Their negligence was the reason you were involved in an accident.
  • Damages: You suffered damages.
