Personal injury law applies to any injury suffered by a person that is caused by another person or entity’s intentional, negligent, or reckless actions or inactions. It also covers actions caused by strict liability. As a result, there are many different types of personal injury cases.

Our Queens personal injury attorneys at Tucker Lawyers, PC, have experience handling the following types of cases:

What Evidence Do Our Queens Personal Injury Lawyers Need to Prove Your Case?

No two personal injury cases are the same, as each is decided based on its merits. However, you must establish that the at-fault party was negligent in every case. To do this, our attorneys will show that the responsible party owed you a duty of care, which they breached, and the breach caused the accident and led to your suffering damages.

Also, you need evidence to support your personal injury claim and assertion of negligence. While the proof required for each case varies, it typically includes the accident report, medical treatment record, receipt of lost earnings and expenses related to the injury, and images or video of the accident scene and the wounds suffered.

Our firm is proud to represent clients in Queens, and we provide exceptional and personalized service to all our clients.

Ideally, you should have this evidence before visiting our law firm. But if you don’t, you can still come to us. Our personal injury attorneys in Queens can investigate and gather the proof needed to establish your claim.

What Compensation Will Our Queens Personal Injury Lawyer Get for You?

The compensation amount of each case differs based on its facts and the severity of the injury suffered, but, generally, our Tucker Lawyers PC team will get you economic and non-economic damages. This essentially covers your monetary and non-monetary losses, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Out-of-pocket expenses.

In some cases, we can recover punitive damages. The latter applies in cases of gross negligence or intentional malice, and New York has no cap on punitive damages.

Queens Personal Injury Lawyer FAQs

You might have some basic questions besides those pertaining directly to your case. Many of our clients ask us the following questions:

  • Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer for My Case?

    It is not compulsory to hire an attorney, but it is crucial. Insurance companies do not always play fair, and having a lawyer levels the playing field and ensures your rights are protected.

  • Do I Have to Go to Court for My Case?

    No. We will try to settle with the at-fault party before filing a lawsuit. However, we will file a lawsuit if they do not want to settle or they make a lowball settlement offer.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Case?

    You have three years to file a personal injury case in New York. The time starts counting from the accident date, and you cannot take any legal action once it elapses.

  • How Much Do Queens Personal Injury Lawyers Charge?

    At Tucker Lawyers, PC, we work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning we only get paid after you win. Also, we take only a pre-agreed percentage of the compensation.
