Personal Injury Lawsuit

File A New York Personal Injury Lawsuit

Personal Injury Lawsuit New YorkThe fraction of a second in which an accident occurs has the power to change your life forever. It can be exceptionally challenging – physically, emotionally and financially – to move forward after a serious personal injury, but victims don’t have to face these hurdles alone.

Serving New Yorkers since 1967, The Sanders Firm has helped thousands of clients file a personal injury lawsuit in New York.

Over the past four decades, our New York personal injury lawyers have procured many millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, helping them attain justice while ensuring their families secure equitable financial reparations.

No matter the context or severity of your injuries, if you suffered damages due to the negligence of another, we will work diligently to settle your claim for its maximum value, or effectively argue your case before a jury, if it goes to trial. After reviewing the circumstances surrounding your accident, we will provide an honest assessment of whether or not you have a valid personal injury claim, and determine the approximate worth of your case.

Standards of proof in New York personal injury cases

The standard of proof in the majority of personal injury lawsuits in New York is a “preponderance of the evidence.” This criterion is met if there is more than a 50 percent probability that the allegations raised by the plaintiff are true. Most civil claims are decided on the preponderance of evidence standard, while many personal injury lawsuits are based on allegations of negligence.

In personal injury claims, the injured party has to demonstrate that:

  • The defendant owed a duty of care to the injured party
  • That duty was breached by the defendant
  • This breach of duty caused the injury to the plaintiff
  • The plaintiff suffered injuries

With our vast financial resources, in-house medical consultants and veteran support staff, The Sanders Firm can help injured plaintiffs gather credible evidence, secure expert witnesses, and prove liability in any type of personal injury claim.

We know that medical bills for traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, or spinal cord injury can put you at risk for bankruptcy or foreclosure, and we believe it’s imperative that negligent parties pay for the harm that they cause, from hospital expenses and lost income to property damage. In addition to attaining fair compensation for your pain and suffering, legal action often spurs changes to prevent future accidents and injury to others.
