Binghamton Personal Injury Lawyers
Providing a Client-Focused, Results-Driven Approach
When another person, company, or entity is negligent and you are injured as a result, you have the right to file a personal injury claim and seek financial compensation for your losses. At The Russell Friedman Law Group, LLP, we believe that you should not have to suffer the painful, distressing, and expensive costs associated with another party’s negligence on your own.
Our Binghamton personal injury lawyers are here to guide you through the legal process, working to overcome the unique difficulties and challenges you face. Because every situation is different, we take the time to get to know our clients and their needs.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim?
While some accidents are just that—blameless, unpreventable accidents—most stem from careless, reckless, or wrongful behavior. Whether you were involved in a car accident or injured by a defective product, if you believe someone else is to blame, you could have grounds for a personal injury claim.
In order to file a personal injury claim, you must be able to prove all of the following elements:
- You were injured
- As a result of your injuries, you sustained certain damages
- Your injuries resulted from another person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct
- The negligent party owed you a duty of care
- The negligent party failed to uphold the duty of care
For example, all motorists owe others on the road a duty of care—they are required to follow traffic laws and take reasonable actions to avoid causing accidents whenever possible. If a motorist fails to uphold this duty of care by texting while driving, speeding, driving drunk, or engaging in other negligent driving behaviors, he or she can cause serious harm to others. In such cases, the injured person(s) can seek justice by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist’s insurance provider and recovering compensation for their damages.
Damages in Personal Injury Cases
The issue of damages is a central one in personal injury law. Damages are any losses—financial or otherwise—that a person suffers as a result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions or inactions.
Every case is different, but many injured individuals are able to recover the following damages:
All medical costs associated with the accident, including but not limited to:
- Emergency medical services
- Ambulance, emergency room, and hospital fees
- Medical bills
- Surgeries, rehabilitation, and other treatment
- Medications and medical equipment
- Future medical care costs
- Lost income/wages for time taken off work to receive medical treatment/recover
- Lost future earnings and/or earning capacity if injuries are disabling
- Pain and suffering, including physical pain and emotional distress
- Trauma related to the incident, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression
- Reduced or lost quality of life, inconvenience, and related losses
- Property damage repair costs (e.g., repair costs for a damaged vehicle)
Our Binghamton personal injury lawyers can evaluate your case and, based on the specific circumstances involved, provide a clearer picture of the potential value of your case and what damages you may be able to recover.
