Damages in Long Beach, NY Personal Injury Cases
Following a serious accident, victims often experience debilitating injuries that may impact the rest of their lives.
By pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, injured parties may be able to recover compensation for their accident-related expenses.
While every case is different, some of the most commonly awarded damages following a successful Long Beach personal injury lawsuit include:
- Past and future medical expenses;
- Past and future lost wages;
- Property damage;
- Physical pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Loss of the enjoyment of life; and

While these damages are available, accident victims must prove the existence and extent of these damages to get compensated.
Long Beach personal injury lawyers can help injured parties identify the full extent of their economic and non-economic losses.
How Long Do I Have to Bring a Long Beach Personal Injury Case?
New York law requires accident victims to bring a claim for damages within a certain period of time.
Under New York Civil Practice & Rules § 214, an accident victim must bring a personal injury case within three years of the incident that caused their injury.
However, in some cases, state law provides for a shorter statute of limitations.
For example, medical malpractice cases must be filed within two-and-a-half years from the date when the patient discovers they may have a claim against a medical provider.
There are also other exceptions to the general three-year statute of limitations, and the applicable statute of limitations is not always clear-cut.
By consulting with a personal injury lawyer, Long Beach accident victims can determine the amount of time they have to make their claim for damages.
