Personal Injury

If you are among the injured and facing lost time from work, medical bills, and weeks, months or years of painful recovery, we can help.

Every year people are injured in accidents through no fault of their own. According to the New York State Department of Health, there were more than 140,000 emergency room visits from 2005 to 2007 related to motor vehicle accidents. More than 15,000 of these included injuries serious enough to require a hospital stay – and this is only for injuries related to the state’s roadways! Add injuries caused in the workplace, injuries related to someone’s premises, or to the use of consumer products, and injuries caused by someone’s poor judgement or neglect of property and you get thousands of people suffering injuries every day!

Suffering an unexpected accident that results in personal injury is one of the toughest challenges you will ever face. This is why it is essential to find a personal injury attorney who understands the laws affecting your situation and has the experience to negotiate with insurance companies and litigate in court.  You also want an attorney who gets to know you and your exact situation, an attorney who you can speak with as your case progresses.

There are many things you need to consider when injured in an accident. First and foremost, you need to seek the appropriate medical care. Never feel as if you should avoid going to the hospital because you are uninsured or you do not have the money to pay for care. If an event that was not your fault caused your injuries, you may be entitled to medical care paid by those responsible for your injuries.  You may also be entitled to pain and suffering now, and for future pain and loss of enjoyment in your life, and permanent disability.

Whether you are looking for answers as to how to proceed when faced with personal injuries, or you want to pursue a personal injury lawsuit to recoup the time, money, and opportunity lost because of an accident, the Long Island law firm of Harms & Harrigan LLP can help.
