Staten Island Personal Injury Lawyer

Staten Island is one of the five boroughs of New York City, known for its suburban feel, parks, and waterfront views. It may be the smallest borough by land area, but it’s rich in culture and history. Thousands of visitors come to Staten Island each year to explore places like the Staten Island Zoo, Historic Richmond Town, or to take a ride on the Staten Island Ferry for breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. Additionally, many people pass through Staten Island via the Staten Island Ferry or use the borough’s transportation systems to connect to other parts of New York City.

The risk of personal injury in Staten Island is present in various scenarios, whether it’s a car, bus, or train accident, slip and fall incident, medical malpractice at a Staten Island hospital, or an injury at one of the many construction sites.

Are you facing the aftermath of a personal injury incident in Staten Island? You’re not alone. Every day, individuals like you find themselves grappling with the physical, emotional, and financial toll of accidents caused by someone else’s negligence. At Michael Gunzburg, PC, we understand the challenges you’re up against, and our Staten Island personal injury lawyers are here to help you navigate through them with compassion, expertise, and unwavering dedication.

How Much Is My Staten Island Personal Injury Case Worth?

In a Staten Island personal injury case, damages can cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Medical bills encompass costs from doctor visits, hospital stays, and future medical expenses related to the injury. Lost wages account for time missed from work due to the injury and potential future earnings if the accident results in permanent or partial disability. These damages can typically be estimated based on medical reports and other evidence.

Pain and suffering damages are more subjective and vary from case to case. Often, we negotiate with the insurance company to assign a value for pain and suffering, emotional distress, scarring, and other non-economic damages. This valuation, typically between one and five, reflects the severity of the injuries and their impact on your life. It’s then multiplied by the economic damages to determine the pain and suffering compensation. If your case goes to trial, the amount could potentially be higher.

In cases where the negligent party acted recklessly, punitive damages may be sought. These damages aim to punish the defendant and can vary based on the severity of the misconduct and the defendant’s financial resources. While punitive damages are more challenging to obtain, we are committed to seeking them when appropriate to achieve the best outcome for our clients.

Insurance companies often attempt to minimize or deny claims by disputing the extent of injuries or attributing them to pre-existing conditions or other incidents. At Michael Gunzburg, P.C., our experienced attorneys meticulously document your injuries and build a robust case to prove your damages. Whether negotiating a settlement or litigating in court, we present compelling arguments to justify a significant monetary award on your behalf.

What Compensation Is Available for Wrongful Death in Staten Island?

In cases of wrongful death in New York, certain family members have the right to pursue compensation for financial losses and damages resulting from the death. Eligible family members may include the surviving spouse, children, parents, or others who relied on the deceased for support. Recoverable damages can include:

  • Medical expenses related to the injury
  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Value of lost household services
  • Loss of future income
  • Loss of access to healthcare or other benefits
  • Loss of parental training and guidance

New York’s wrongful death statute doesn’t allow compensation for the surviving family members’ pain and suffering but does permit recovery for the conscious pain and suffering the deceased experienced before death. These damages can help the family cope with their loss and hold the negligent party accountable for their actions.
