We Help Injured New Yorkers Seek Compensation

Suffering a sudden and devastating injury can upend your entire life. Not only do you need time to recover and regain your strength, but you need to find a way to cover expensive medical bills and other relevant costs.

At MJP Injury Law, we help clients by building strong cases that help prove their story and obtain a fair settlement. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with insurance companies’ tactics to deny your claims. We fight them head-on to secure the compensation our clients need. We put you first, always. We make sure your voice is heard.

What You Need To Know Before You File A Claim

To file a personal injury claim, you (or your attorney) must be able to prove that another person or company’s negligence directly contributed to your accident and that you suffered compensable injuries. If you hire a lawyer, they will investigate and collect evidence on your behalf, as well as walk you through the necessary paperwork and other procedures. An attorney can also accurately determine how much compensation you are owed.

In the state of New York, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim. This time limit is known as the “statute of limitations.”

Damages you may be eligible to recover in a personal injury claim, such as a car accident or pedestrian accident, include both financial and noneconomic losses such as:

  • All relevant medical expenses, both past and future
  • Any lost wages from missed work
  • Property damage, in the event your car was totaled, for instance
  • Pain and suffering you endured because of the accident
  • Punitive damages, in the rare event your accident was caused by malice or gross negligence
  • Attorney fees

The time it takes to resolve a personal injury claim successfully can vary immensely. If your case is fairly straightforward and you are already on your way to recovery, your claim may only take a few weeks or months to finalize. However, if you have suffered devastating injuries and are still in recovery, the defendant is uncooperative, or your case is otherwise complicated, it can take up to one or two years to resolve.

We will work to resolve your case as effectively and efficiently as possible. We will never keep you in the dark about the happening of the case and will always contact you regarding important decisions.

Tough, Relentless Attorneys For Premises Liability Cases

The premise of a premises liability case is relatively simple: the places you go to should be safe. Property owners have a duty to secure their premises from dangerous hazards and criminal activity and to ensure your safety overall. If they fail in those very basic duties, you may have a claim against them.

From slips and falls to negligent security, we’re here to listen to your story and fight for the financial help you need to manage your injury costs.

Auto Accidents Can Be Highly Complex

If you’ve had an accident behind the wheel, whether in a car, on a motorcycle or even as a pedestrian struck by a vehicle, we want to hear from you. Auto accidents are the most common type of personal injury case, and the injuries from them can be painful and costly. Additionally, while there is a lot of case law on car accidents, that doesn’t make claims easy. It makes pursuing the compensation you need a lot more complicated.

We’re up to the task of holding the liable party in your accident accountable. We fight for what you deserve and we do not let up.
