How Bornstein & Emanuel, P.C. Can Help with Your Nassau or Queens Claim
When you consult with us, we will determine whether you have a valid injury claim and help you explore your legal options. While premises liability claims are typically covered under the owner’s property insurance, obtaining the full value of your claim can be challenging. Insurers often attempt to deny claims in an attempt to protect their profits.
Our experienced premises liability lawyers will demand full payment of your claim that considers your future medical and financial needs. If the insurance company fails to honor your claim, we will take them to court.
Although no two injury claims are the same, you may be entitled to significant compensation, including economic and noneconomic damages, such as:
- Medical expenses, rehabilitative care
- Lost wages (past and future)
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
It is important to note that premises liability claims are governed by the state’s rules of comparative negligence. This means that if you are partially at fault for causing your injury (e.g. by not being aware of your surroundings), the amount of your award may be reduced by an insurance claims adjuster or the court. Trust our legal team to protect you from liability and fight for every dollar you deserve.
