In the years as a personal injury lawyer in New York, Paul Dansker has consistently come across common mistakes clients (and even lawyers) make in handling personal injury cases. These errors can significantly affect the case's chances of getting a favorable settlement, or even cause the client to recover absolutely nothing. Therefore, Paul Dansker has compiled this summary of the 10 most common issues to avoid. They are not listed in any particular order as each is just as important as the other.
A back injury claim can be extremely painful and can result from a number of various activities including accidents at work, road traffic accidents, through to slips, trips and falls.
Car accidents tend to be one of the most common causes of back injuries.
Many people work in industries that use and/or produce chemicals that can be harmful with repeated exposure. If the company is aware of certain dangers, and does nothing to protect its employees (or the general public) from toxic exposure, they are considered to be negligent and can be held liable for their actions.
If you have suffered any type of personal injury due to the fault of someone else, you are entitled to a personal injury insurance settlement. Personal injury laws frequently necessitate the person responsible for the accident to cover the injured person's medical expenses.
Personal injury settlements can provide someone who has been hurt from using a defective product or through the negligent or criminal behavior of someone else a means to lead a fairly normal life. Consult Paul Dansker an experienced personal injury attorney for more info.
When you get into an auto accident, you need to be prepared. As an auto attorney, Paul D Dansker wants to give you some advice about what you should keep in your car to make dealing with an auto accident easier. Furthermore, what you need to gather in order to make it easier for a lawyer to represent you.
Being in a car accident can be a terrifying ordeal for many people. However, knowing what to expect from the responding officers and how to deal with them can help alleviate some of the anxiety. There are several things an accident victim can do that can help the officer and make the job for an accident lawyer easier. These are not difficult, but do require keeping a cool head. Here is what Mr. Paul D Dansker is suggesting:
Everyday parents walk their children to the bus stop and watch as the big yellow bus pulls away with their most prized possession. Although most parents feel safe with their children riding the bus, every year there are cases of bus related injuries.
One of the current issues revolving around school buses is the bus driver being on the phone. In some states, it is illegal to talk on the phone and drive. It is obvious in these states that the bus driver should not be doing this. However, does a state law really matter? Shouldn't a bus driver's focus be on the road and the safety of its passengers?
If you are a police officer and have been injured on the job in New York City, you may feel that you have nowhere to turn. Most workers in the state of New York cannot sue an employer for an injury that occurred on the job. However, New York City police officers can legally sue an employer in cases involving negligence.
A police accident or injury lawsuit is often a very complex case. These cases are best handled by experienced NY police injury lawyers who possess a thorough understanding of city and state laws.
If an individual slips and falls in the premises of another individual's property, the owner maybe legally responsible for the injuries incurred during the accident.
A property owner may be liable when someone slips, trips, or falls on a slippery hallway, poorly constructed stairs, or a rough pavement, but there are also occasions when the owner is not accountable for the accident.
Every year there are nearly 1000 deaths and 10,000 people seriously injured from pedestrian accidents. If you have suffered injury as a pedestrian you should consider making a no win no fee personal injury claim. Most pedestrian accidents involve being knocked over by a moving vehicle when walking along the pavement or crossing the road. In this situation it is entirely likely that you will be able to claim compensation.
New York has certainly seen its fair share of harsh winter weather this year, and it still seems as though another few snow storms will be laying down more ice and snow in the upcoming months, despite the first day of spring having passed. Ice and snow on the roads means traffic and traffic accidents, and just about every personal injury attorney has certainly been kept busy this year.
Each year it is estimated that between 1.6 - 3.8 million people in the United States get a concussion. Most of these come from accidents like slips and falls or repeated trauma, like youth and professional sports. Recently there has been heightened awareness about the signs, possible effects, and what to do if you were the victim of a brain injury. With proper recognition, you can decrease the symptoms and try to speed up recovery, which is of course better for your health in the long run.
Thousands of accidents occur in NYC every day. Thankfully, many of these accidents result in minor injuries, such as a few cuts and bruises. Other times it is just a simple knock on the head, leaving the victim with a slight headache for a while, after which they believe they are okay. However, both medical personnel and NYC Brain Injury Lawyers like Mr. Paul Dansker highly advise seeking medical attention for any type of head injury, no matter how slight.
The laws on personal injury are truly comprehensive and complicated. Many lawyers might be focusing on personal injury cases but you have to find the one who really specializes on the claim that is similar to yours. Compared to any other fields of employment, there are also specializations in the legal genre. It is therefore important for you to identify first the type of personal injury that you have experienced and suffered before getting the services of a personal injury lawyer.
Some people have misconception that only filing a personal injury suit to obtain compensation determines their win but it's not so. For this you have to prove the negligence and indulgence of the opposite party. Here strong evidence plays a vital role that proves the other party was at fault due to negligence or other cause. It clearly means that how strong your case can be it depends on the collection and protection of evidence.
