William Sullivan fights for people injured as a result of another’s intentional misconduct or negligence. These injuries may occur in many different ways. When injury occurs from an automobile, truck or motorcycle accident, the injured party has two avenues to recovery:
First, in New York State, “no-fault” rules apply that compensate an injured party regardless of who caused the accident. The “no-fault” system compensates up to $50,000 in damages.
Second, if a person suffers “serious injury” the injured person may sue the person at fault in the accident for damages.
The phrase “Serious injury” has a specific meaning in New York State and the no-fault system has important deadlines that, if missed, could prevent recovery. Therefore, it is important to consult a lawyer as soon as possible after an auto accident to determine your standing in a:
- Injury sustained while at work
- Injury sustained on a construction sites
- Injuries related to unsafe premises
- Injuries caused by crime such as assault and battery
When a person is severely injured, the injured person, their spouse, and immediate family members, may be entitled to recover money damages for:
- Wrongful death
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional disability
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of society, love and affection
- Property loss, and;
- Incidental and out-of-pocket expenses
If after your consultation, William Sullivan takes your case he will aggressively pursue it to conclusion; whether that means a negotiated settlement or trial. Mr. Sullivan accepts cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not pay his fee. His fee is deducted from the damages he recovers in your case.
