Instead, dial (585) 245-0255 and connect to the Rochester personal injury lawyers from The Russell Friedman Law Group, LLP about what happened. We would be happy to explain your legal options, which might be much better than what you have been led to believe.

Honestly is an integral part of our policies. We show it by being transparent and upfront with all of our clients. If we don’t think we’re the right fit for your claim, then we will tell you during your consultation, and we might be able to refer you to another law firm we trust. If we are able to work on your case and elevate it, then we will also let you know, so we can get to work on it as soon as possible.

Personal Injury Damages You Can Recover

You probably want to file a personal injury claim because you’ve been injured and wronged by someone else. Your claim could be the best way to get justice and a sense of closure. But it’s important to not lose sight of the fact that your claim might also be the only way for you to get financially compensated for the damages you have incurred and suffered due to your injuries.

Our Rochester personal injury attorneys can calculate the damages available in your claim and pursue every single penny. We know how to prove the different types of damages you have endured and how to uncover various insurance policies to file against. For example, after a motor vehicle accident, you might be able to file against the other driver’s auto insurance policy and their homeowners’ insurance policy if the circumstances are correct. Leave those fine details up to us while you rest.

Damages that could be available in your personal injury claim are:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Pain, suffering, and trauma
  • Property repair or replacement costs

What Is The Personal Injury Statute Of Limitations In New York?

In New York, the personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of the accident or injury. This means that you have three years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury lawsuit in court. It's important to note that this time limit can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case and the type of claim involved.

There are some exceptions and variations to the statute of limitations in certain situations. For example, if the injury involves medical malpractice, the statute of limitations is generally two years and six months from the date of the alleged malpractice or from the end of continuous treatment provided by the healthcare professional.

It's crucial to be aware of the statute of limitations that applies to your case, as failing to file a lawsuit within the specified time period can result in losing your right to seek compensation. Consulting with our Rochester personal injury attorneys can help you understand the specific time limits relevant to your situation and to take appropriate legal action in a timely manner.

Looking for Evidence Wherever It Is

To secure a victory in your personal injury claim, we won’t rely on luck. Our legal processes involve in-depth investigations into each client’s accident or incident to see what went wrong, why it did, and who should be held liable for it. Evidence can come in many different forms, and we’ll look for it wherever it might be. From police reports and medical records to statements from eyewitnesses, you’ll never know who can help back your claim if you don’t go looking for their help, so we’ll look far and wide.
