Personal Injury Legal Services

When you’ve been forced to deal with a serious personal injury, you may be required to take time off from work to recuperate from your injuries. The inability to earn an income may make you unable to support yourself and your family, in addition to the astronomical medical bills you’ve likely incurred as a result of your injuries. Fortunately, you can get help from a Personal injury Lawyer. The attorneys at Chavez & Ponist, LLP have dedicated themselves to assisting injury victims throughout New York City, Westchester and Rockland Counties, the Hudson Valey and South Eastern New York State. Our law firm is prepared to investigate your accident so the appropriate party is held accountable for your damages. From there, we’ll determine how much your claim is worth to ensure that you receive full recovery of your losses.


Though you’ve already suffered your injuries, you may be wondering whether you’ll have the opportunity to pursue your personal injury claim in New York . The key to every personal injury lawsuit is the accident being caused by another person’s negligent actions.

The ultimate goal with any personal injury claim is to recover full compensation for every single loss you’ve endured at the hands of the person who is liable for your damages. These damages are often classified as being either economic or non-economic, and there is a possibility that you’ll also be entitled to punitive damages. We describe what each of these categories of damages are below.

Personal Injury Economic and Non-Economic Damages 

When you have to take time off from work or when you need to seek medical attention for your injuries, these financial losses are referred to as economic damages. Other financial damages might include the loss of your earning capacity and property damages, among others. Non-economic damages reflect every loss that has nothing to do with your finances and everything to do with your lifestyle and psychological state. Your pain and suffering, loss of household services, inconvenience, loss of companionship and love, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life will fall into this category.
