What is the average personal injury claim settlement in Westchester County, NY?
It depends on the severity of the injury and its effects on your life. The average personal injury settlement is anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands.
When people are negligent and cause accidents that harm others, the injuries that result are often severe. Some of the most common injuries that may be eligible for compensation after a Westchester County accident include:
- TBI (traumatic brain injury)
- Head injury
- Shoulder injury
- Back pain and neck pain due to torn or strained muscles, tendons, or ligaments.
- Spinal cord injury
- Nerve damage
- Herniated or slipped disc
- Bone fractures
- Facial injuries
When accidents are fatal, victims' families are also typically eligible for compensation. However, the insurance company wants to pay you as little as possible. As a result, they will undervalue the cost of medical treatment and the agony you have experienced.
You need a strong, experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how the system works in Westchester, NY. Giampa Law builds strong, evidence-based cases that demand results. Our law firm has recovered millions of dollars in damages for injured accident victims and their families.
How do I know if I have a strong case for personal injury compensation?
The easiest and most accurate way to understand how the law applies to your situation and your claim's value is to contact Giampa Law for a free case consultation.
In general, strong personal injury cases must establish four things:
- Someone owed you a duty of care (a legal responsibility for your safety). For example, motorists owe a duty of care to others on the road, and property owners owe a duty of care to people on their premises.
- The other person or business failed to meet their duty of care – this is called negligence.
- You were injured as a result of the breach of duty of care.
- Your injury led to significant financial losses (damages).
Giampa Law conducts thorough investigations that get to the bottom of what happened to cause you injury – even if the negligent party doesn't want us to. Our law firm has a reputation for a relentless pursuit of the truth and maximum compensation.
How can a Westchester County personal injury lawyer help me?
Even when it's obvious you were injured by someone else's negligence, collecting the settlement you are due isn't easy. Insurance companies regularly deny claims and challenge seriously injured people and the families of fatal accident victims to prove they are eligible for compensation.
If the insurance company wants a fight, we'll give them one. Our Westchester County personal injury attorneys are relentless and aggressive about getting you the justice and compensation you deserve. We know that accepting a lowball settlement means the money could run out before you are healed. That's why we stop at nothing to prove your case.
