For example, you must file a wrongful death lawsuit within two years of the date of death. Similarly, if you were injured due to medical malpractice, you normally must file your lawsuit within two years and six months. Further, if you are suing a government entity, you have 90 days to file a Notice of Claim and one year and 90 days to file a lawsuit. 

Remember, failure to file before the governing deadline will result in your case being dismissed in court. Our skilled personal injury lawyers in Melville can determine the correct deadline for filing your lawsuit. Reach out today to protect your right to compensation.

What Evidence Do I Need for My Melville Personal Injury Claim?

Most personal injury cases require proving negligence.  However, no matter what legal theory your case rests on, you will need evidence to prove liability for your damages. Among other things, important evidence in personal injury lawsuits may include things like:

  • Photographs and videos
  • Medical billing and treatment records
  • Witness statements
  • Testimony from experts, such as doctors and accident reconstructionists 
  • Employment and wage records
  • Driving records, inspections, safety reports, and other documentation

What Damages Are Available in a Melville Personal Injury Case?

Our Melville personal injury lawyers will leave no stone unturned as we evaluate all sources of liability and compensation in your case. Our experience with past clients, commitment to your success, and deep knowledge of the law empower us to vigorously pursue compensation for your injuries and losses. Your compensable damages may include things like:

  • Medical bills and future medical costs
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Funeral and burial expenses in wrongful death claims

In some circumstances, you can also pursue punitive damages, which are reserved for cases in which the defendant acted maliciously or with reckless and wanton indifference to the safety of others. Though rarer than the compensatory damages listed above, punitive damages can significantly raise the value of your claim. 

Importantly, New York’s pure comparative negligence law allows you to collect damages even if you were partly responsible for your accident, but your compensation will be reduced based on your percentage of responsibility. Our attorneys will gather the evidence necessary to prove your claim and to counter allegations that you were responsible for your injuries.
