New York’s Serious Injury Threshold
If you live in New York, your injury has to be considered serious based on the state’s standards and guidelines before you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit. The New York State Serious Injury Threshold law outlines the injury types that entitle victims to file a claim and seek compensation as long as the harm was caused by someone else’s negligence.
A car accident victim, for example, has to satisfy the New York law and what one might consider serious may not qualify under the serious injury threshold.
Some of the injuries that New York State considers serious include:
- Loss of a fetus
- Wrongful death
- Loss of limb
- Bone fractures
- Severe disfigurement
- Fetal loss
- Permanent body damage or loss of organ, bodily functions or necessary systems
- Permanent life limitations such as decreased mental capacity after a traumatic brain injury
- Permanent change in quality of life including the inability to perform daily tasks
The catastrophic injuries that fall under the New York State Serious Injury Threshold include neck and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and a wide range of life-altering injuries. Our personal injury attorney can help determine if your circumstances fall under this umbrella.
An Aggressive Advocate on Your Side
A catastrophic injury has a financial, emotional and social impact on the entire family of the victim. The entire support structure surrounding the injured person must change to accommodate the cost of medical treatment and physical rehabilitation, lost earnings and the emotional issues that often accompany a life-changing injury.
When the injury was caused by negligence on the part of another person or entity, the injustice can overwhelm a family for years. That's why our personal injury law firm fights hard to recover compensation for the effects of the injury, including:
