Tomkiel & Tomkiel Handles the Entire Case For Injured Workers – Both Worker’s Comp & Third-Party Lawsuits.
Every day, people in Westchester suffer from injuries caused by the negligence of others. What is negligence? Negligence is when a corporation or individual violates the laws and safety rules that provide standards of reasonable care to govern the way people drive, manage a workplace, or maintain property.
When a corporation or individual violates these standards of care they are needlessly endangering other people. People like you and me: at work, driving on the roadways, and even at home. When a person is injured because of the negligence of another, whether because of a car accident, a defective product, an accident at work, a construction accident, or a slip and fall, the negligent party is required to fully and fairly compensate them for the harms and losses caused by their negligence.
Most people and corporations have insurance policies that cover their potential negligence. In New York for example, all motor vehicle owners are required to maintain insurance for injuries caused by the negligence of the driver.
If you are suffering from a personal injury, your focus should be on healing. However, that can be difficult if you are out of work due to disability from your injuries and worried about mounting medical bills, or if you are facing pressure to provide a statement or agree to a settlement offer. If you turn these worries over to an experienced Westchester personal injury attorney, your lawyer should handle the legal issues involved in obtaining full and fair compensation to allow you to concentrate on your recovery.
Although each case is unique, there are some common features of personal injury claims. In successful cases, the injured individual can recover money—also referred to as damages—to compensate for both their economic losses and their pain and suffering.
Examples of compensation for economic losses include money for the cost of medical bills both in the past and for future medical treatment including surgery; and money to compensate for lost wages as a result of time out of work caused by disability. This can also include money for lost pension and retirement benefits. People who suffer long-term or permanent injuries can recover damages for costs to cover modifications to their home, caregiver needs, and anticipated future consequences such as reduced earning potential.
In addition to recovering money for economic losses, injured people can also recover money for pain and suffering, including emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. These types of harms are also known as non-economic damages, which a Westchester personal injury attorney could help to determine in any particular case.
Please note that each case must be evaluated on the specific facts and evaluation of a specific case may vary from “no merit” to a multi-million dollar recovery.

What We Can do to Help You
People and corporations are never allowed to needlessly endanger others. Drivers are not allowed to ignore red lights or stop signs. Stores and other buildings open to the public are not allowed to ignore tripping hazards or slippery conditions such as snow and ice. General contractors and construction site operators are not allowed to provide defective ladders, scaffolds, or other safety equipment to construction workers.
When a corporation or person is negligent, that party is required to compensate the injured person for the damages caused by the negligence. However, that liability may be reduced or
eliminated if the harmed individual was also negligent. If the injured person is partly at fault for causing the accident, then the amount of damages they can collect is reduced in proportion to their comparative amount of fault.
In some cases, there may be more than one party responsible for causing the same injuries. In a car accident, both drivers may be negligent, and the injured passenger could have a claim against both. Also, parties may be vicariously liable for the actions of another. Employers are responsible for the negligence of their employees who are acting in the course of their employment. For example, the corporation that operates a retail store is responsible for the negligence of its employee who failed to clean up a slippery condition on the floor.
Proving negligence in a personal injury case can be a complicated process. An experienced Westchester personal injury lawyer who understands how local courts have acted in cases like yours could evaluate your situation and help you pursue compensation for your damages.
Your attorney should advocate aggressively on your behalf not only in the courtroom, but in every negotiation throughout the personal injury process. If you are suffering the effects of an injury that could have been prevented, call the Westchester personal injury lawyers at Tomkiel & Tomkiel today for a free consultation to learn what options you have.
