Bronx Personal Injury Attorney
Being injured in a car accident, slip and fall, or construction accident is a painful and traumatic experience that is disruptive to your life and sometimes life-changing. Compensation is possible when you have been the victim of someone else’s negligence, but making sure you get all the care and compensation you need requires the assistance of a qualified and experienced New York injury lawyer. I am attorney Kevin Kohn, and I have been helping people in the Bronx recover compensation after a personal injury for over 30 years. When you put your trust in the Kohn Law Firm, you can rest assured that you will receive high-quality legal representation and personal service dedicated to getting you the full amount of compensation you need and deserve.
As a personal injury lawyer in the Bronx for more than three decades, I have represented injury victims harmed by negligence in a variety of circumstances. I and my fellow Bronx injury attorneys can help you if have been harmed in any of the following instances:
Recovering Compensation for Damages under New York Injury Law
The compensation you can recover in civil litigation is known as “damages.” Damages in a personal injury case can include all of the economic and non-economic harm which has been inflicted on you. These damages typically include losses such as:
- Present and future medical expenses
- Lost income from the time you are absent from work, including long-term or permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Loss in quality of life
Unfortunately, recovering this compensation is not a simple matter that you can accomplish on your own. The average person simply does not have a complete understanding of the total costs and full value of his or her claim. If you try to negotiate with the insurance company on your own, you will almost always be offered an amount that is far below what your claim is really worth. At the Kohn Law Firm, our Bronx County personal injury lawyers have been handling injury cases for decades. We know how to properly value your claim and get full value from the insurance companies. With our law firm representing you, the insurance companies are more likely to deal with you fairly, but if an adequate settlement cannot be reached, we are prepared to fight for your rights and take your case into court to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
Don’t be Bullied by Insurance Company Allegations of Negligence
New York has adopted the rule of pure comparative negligence. This means that if you are partially at fault in causing the accident or making your injuries worse, then any amount you recover from a negligent party will be reduced proportionately. Insurance companies try to put as much of the blame for the accident on you as they can, in order to reduce their liability to you. But don’t take their word for it. Let the Bronx County personal injury lawyers at the Kohn Law Firm investigate the accident on your behalf. We work to uncover the facts and stand strong behind our clients; we won’t let the insurance companies pin the blame on you for an accident that wasn’t your fault, and we will fight to see you get the full amount of compensation that is coming to you.
