NY Personal Injury Attorneys
Since 1971, the NY personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm have been protecting the rights and interests of New Yorkers who have been hurt as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of another party. We build on our years of collective experience and we are prepared to aggressively fight to get our clients the full compensation they deserve.
What Is “Personal Injury”?
A personal injury lawsuit involves a party, referred to as the “plaintiff,” seeking monetary compensation for injuries caused by another party, referred to as the “defendant.” Most claimants allege that their injuries were caused by the negligent actions of the defendant. Not all personal injury lawsuits are litigated. More frequently, they are resolved through settlement negotiations between the NY personal injury attorneys and insurance adjusters.
What Is Negligence?
Negligence happens when an individual uses less than reasonable care to prevent an injury. Negligence can take the form of failing to do something a reasonably prudent person would do or would not do. In order to successfully negotiate or settle a personal injury claim, you need to show that the at-fault party violated his or her duty to you.
Whether the defendant is negligent is generally the main point of contention in a personal injury case, and the question of negligence is best understood by a legal professional. Our NY personal injury attorneys will evaluate the facts of your case and help you determine the strength of your claim.
