Understanding the Causes of Personal Injuries

Personal injuries can develop in a variety of ways and typically involve little fault on part of the injured victim. From car accidents to slip and falls, the causes of personal injuries are endless and often leave the victim with life-threatening or debilitating injuries. When a New York resident is injured due to the negligent actions of another individual or entity, the law allows the victim an opportunity to recover compensation for their injuries and subsequent losses.
