In New York, anyone injured due to someone else’s negligence is entitled to take legal action. After a serious car accident, slip and fall, workplace injury, or any other injury-causing event resulting from another is careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct, you can seek financial compensation for your damages—and The Cassisi Law Firm can help.

If you or someone you love was injured due to another person, company, or entity’s negligence, we can help. Our Queens personal injury attorneys are here to answer your questions and provide you with the personalized legal counsel you need.
Damages are any financial or otherwise losses a person sustains due to another party’s negligent or wrongful conduct. Because each case is unique, the actual damages you will be able to recover in your injury lawsuit will depend on the specific circumstances involved.
Our Queens personal injury attorneys help injured individuals seek compensation for the following damages:
In cases where the defendant acted with willful or wanton disregard for the safety of others, injured victims may also be able to seek punitive damages. In contrast to compensatory damages, like those listed above, punitive damages are not meant to compensate the victim for losses but to punish the defendant for egregious negligence. Punitive damages are rare, but they can sometimes be used to send a clear message that such conduct will not be tolerated.
Our firm handles all aspects of personal injury, and we encourage you to explore the ways in which we can help protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
People who have been injured due to the careless conduct of another can sue under a variety of legal theories, but perhaps the most common is negligence.
To prevail in a negligence claim under New York law, the injured victim typically must prove:
For example, all drivers owe a duty to others on the road to exercise due care and operate their vehicles carefully. For example, those who drive carelessly by texting or driving while drunk have breached this duty. If this reckless conduct causes an accident and someone else is injured, the injured party may sue the driver for compensatory damages to cover damages.
The state of New York has a statute of limitations on personal injury claims, meaning you only have a certain amount of time to file your claim and pursue a lawsuit. In most cases, the standard statute of limitations on personal injury claims in New York is three years from the date of injury. There are some—minimal—exceptions to this three-year time limit, but in most cases, your lawsuit will be dismissed if you try to file a claim after more than three years.
Because of this, you must act quickly. We encourage you to immediately reach out to our Queens personal injury lawyers to learn how we can help you with your case. In addition to ensuring you do not miss the deadline to file, acting quickly can also allow us to gather invaluable evidence to support your claim. Over time, this evidence can be lost, so the sooner you get in touch with our team, the better.
