Personal Injury


Accidents happen in New York every day, and unfortunately, many of them lead to significant injuries. Car crashes, on-the-job accidents, and other incidents can cause serious medical issues such as brain injuries, broken bones, neck and spine injuries, and more. Personal injury lawsuits are a way for victims of accidents caused by negligence or carelessness to obtain financial compensation. Based in Manhattan and serving surrounding cities in New York, Robinson Yablon Cooper & Bonfante, LLP offers veteran legal representation in order to provide clients injured in accidents the opportunity to seek the maximum financial award available.

An accident can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Although many people believe accidents to be just that — accidental — the truth is that many accidents are preventable, and were simply caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence.

The costs associated with severe injuries can be overwhelming, and in some cases, they can total millions of dollars or more. Since most people don’t expect the worst to happen, many families are financially unprepared for the financial damage that an accident can do.

In addition, if you have been in an accident and feel there has only been a minor injury, there can be more long-term consequences. A minor injury today may end up being more serious down the line, and with the help of an experienced law firm that has seen hundreds of these types of injuries, you may be able to obtain significant compensation.

Personal Injury FAQ

  • What if I was injured at work? If you were injured at work, you may be eligible for both personal injury and workers’ compensation representation. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to cover lost wages and medical bills if you were involved in an accident while at your job. Personal injury lawsuits are designed to help recover past, present, and future pain and suffering compensation.
  • The insurance company offered me a settlement. Should I take it? The insurance company will try to get you to take the first settlement offer (and it will likely be much lower than it should be). Something many people don’t understand about insurance companies is that their primary objective is to deny a claim, or to settle a case for the least amount possible. The first settlement offer that an insurance company provides is often extraordinarily low, in hopes that the claimant will accept the settlement quickly without question. Never accept the first settlement offer, as it will likely be much lower than what you deserve.
  • How long do I have to file a case? There is a statute of limitations on personal injury cases in New York. The statutes vary depending on the type of case – contact Robinson Yablon Cooper & Bonfante, LLP immediately to learn more.
  • What do I need to prove my case? Evidence is critical in a personal injury case — gather as much documentation as you can. As the plaintiff, you have the burden of proof in a personal injury case. In order to increase your chances of success, gather as much evidence as possible to support your claim. Photographs, witness testimony, video,incident and police reports and other documentation could be critical in establishing the severity of the accident and your injuries.
