Cable Technician Injured in Ladder Accident Is Awarded $500,000

October 9th, 2023 by

It was a day like any other when Deon F. reported for duty as a cable technician. Little did she know that her workday was about to be turned upside down by a frightening accident. As she went to climb a ladder to pull cables through a drop ceiling, she realized that despite previously alerting her supervisor to the unstable nature of the ladders used by employees, the ladder she used that day was indeed still unsteady and unsafe. Suddenly, as she was focused on the cables she was working on within the drop ceiling, another worker on the job site bumped into the already-wobbly ladder she was standing on. She was sent careening to the ground and suffered a broken ankle from her terrifying fall. Unfortunately, her injury was so severe that she required surgery to correct the damage. Luckily, she reached out to the esteemed attorneys at Hill and Moin, LLP who swiftly came to her rescue. Deon F. loved that the attorneys always promptly and sufficiently addressed her questions and concerns, adding that the communication from the staff was consistently outstanding. She expressed her gratitude for the stellar outcome achieved by Hill and Moin, LLP and was elated with her impressive settlement of $500,000! Ready to put this traumatic ordeal behind her, Deon F. is looking forward to building her savings to keep on hand for all that life may bring.

Can You Sue for Pain and Suffering in NY?

September 25th, 2023 by

Accidents and intentional wrongdoing cause pain and suffering. Still, some accident victims can only recover economic losses in personal injury cases.

Whether your personal injury lawsuit includes pain and suffering damages depends on several factors. Some accident victims do not realize that their emotional anguish qualifies them for additional compensation. In other cases, state laws limit damages.

What about New York? Yes, you can sue for pain and suffering in New York State, for serious injuries only. 

At Hill & Moin LLP, our lawyers want the best for you. If you are hurting due to someone else’s actions, you should get the pain and suffering compensation you deserve. That’s why we are here; we can help you build a strong personal injury claim.

Hill & Moin’s New York personal injury lawyers treat you like family. We are determined to secure maximum pain and suffering damages for each client, if possible under state law. Call us at (212) 668-6000 to schedule your free legal consultation. 

Understanding NY Pain and Suffering Lawsuits

Did you know that the success of many personal injury cases hinges on duty? A legal duty is an obligation to conform your actions to a specific standard expected by others.

Consider this scenario. If you have a medical operation, the surgical staff should wash their hands and wear surgical gloves. You would also expect them to avoid unreasonable practices like smoking cigarettes in surgery. Thus, if medical professionals act (or fail to act) reasonably, they could be violating the duty owed to the patient.

The defendant’s negligence or intentional behavior caused injury

Suppose you can prove the defendant failed a duty. You must also demonstrate the defendant’s negligent actions or purposeful wrongdoing caused injury to you.

For instance, a botched surgery could cause physical injuries. An experienced attorney could help you collect evidence to show that your troubles directly resulted from the defendant’s failed duty or intentional misbehavior.

Pain and suffering resulted from the injury

Once you establish the defendant’s duty and its results, you must explain how the incident affected your life. Your explanation will aid the court in calculating pain and suffering compensation.

Are you experiencing any symptoms of pain and suffering? Consider the following:

  • Mental health issues: Post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety are emotional damages that could result from trauma
  • Long-term disability: Some injuries and illnesses last for an extended period, often leaving an accident victim unable to work
  • Shortened life expectancy: Some medical conditions reduce the average expected life span
  • Complications to daily life: Injuries and disabilities can make everyday living tasks difficult or impossible without help
  • Discomfort: Injuries like strains, fractures, and damaged joints can cause uncomfortable sensations
  • Shame, fear, or embarrassment: Amputations, scars, and mobility issues create social and emotional challenges

You can pursue pain and suffering damages in various types of personal injury cases, including:

What about when an accident happens at work? In New York, you must report your injury to your employer to benefit from workers’ compensation.

New York workers’ compensation

In New York, workers’ compensation insurance provides cash benefits and medical care for employees who experience an accident or become ill directly due to their jobs. Fault is not a determining factor of a workers’ compensation claim.

You could claim benefits even if you were partially to blame for your injuries. However, there are exceptions. You cannot recover workers’ compensation benefits if:

  • You attempted self-harm
  • You hurt yourself trying to harm someone else, or;
  • Your injury directly results from drugs or alcoholic intoxication

When you do qualify for work comp, your employer’s insurance company is responsible for paying work-related benefits, namely:

  • Disability benefits of a percentage of your average weekly wage (or up to the maximum allowable amount and duration)
  • Paid pregnancy and maternity leave for before your due date and after giving birth
  • Medical treatment only from your designated health care provider (except in emergency cases)
  • Payment of medical bills, necessary medicine, and medical devices
  • Reimbursement for healthcare-related travel
  • Lost wages if you are disabled and unable to work for more than a specified number of days

You cannot get pain and suffering damages from New York workers’ compensation insurance. You must file a separate personal injury case to recover non-economic damages. Learn more by scheduling a free consultation with our legal team based in New York City.

Calculating Pain and Suffering Damages

How are pain and suffering calculated in New York? There are two methods often used in the American legal system.

The multiplier method

Suppose you are awarded $40,000 for your car accident losses. Using the multiplier method, the amount of your economic damages is multiplied by a certain number.

The multiplier method might use a low number like 1 or 2 for a simple car accident. For severe injuries or extreme negligence (e.g. driving under the influence), a higher number might be used as a multiplier. In general, the number 5 is the highest multiplier used in the multiplier method.

So if your accident was moderately severe and the multiplier is 3, you could receive $120,000 ($40,000 times 3) for pain and suffering damages.

The per diem method

Another way of calculating pain and suffering damages is the per diem method. In this approach, the jury awards the plaintiff a certain quantity of money for each year, month, week, or day. Time begins on the date of the injury and extends into the future based on your expected life expectancy.

Besides these two methods, the pain and suffering damages calculated sometimes relate to the amounts awarded for economic losses. For instance, the medical bills of your injury might amount to $20,000, but now you experience pain that disrupts your normal daily life, including yard work, which you used to be able to perform but now causes you too much pain.

Suppose the cost of New York lawn care services would amount to $10,000 annually. How are the pain and suffering damages calculated in cases like these?

Unlike the multiplier method, which uses a number between 1 and 5 to calculate pain and suffering, the per diem method would multiply the amount of the annual cost for your loss ($10,000) by the remaining years of your life expectancy.

Maximizing Your Pain and Suffering Damages

Pain and suffering damages calculated according to the above-mentioned approaches are not necessarily maximized. There is no specific dollar amount that can be applied to pain and suffering. In court, a judge or jury will attempt to accomplish the difficult task of calculating damages.

Various factors influence how much (if any) pain and suffering compensation is awarded to the plaintiff. What you do now can affect the ultimate success of your personal injury case.

Physical pain

How can anyone understand the pain and suffering felt by someone else? If you share how you feel, you can strengthen your chances of proving pain and suffering damages.

For instance, ask the doctor to note your pain levels in your medical records while receiving medical treatment. You can also keep a journal of your daily life. In it, describe how your physical pain impacts your ability to participate in work, school, and family activities.

Emotional distress

Emotional trauma and mental pain cause genuine suffering and distress. For instance, after a motor vehicle accident, you might be afraid to drive or ride in a car. Nightmares of your car accident could keep you up at night.

If mental anguish continues long after a trauma ends, it may be possible to seek pain and suffering damages. Getting fair compensation is not easy. You will also need to gather evidence of your pain and suffering.

Your lawyer can help you analyze the intensity and duration of your symptoms. He or she can also consult psychological professionals to define your emotional injuries.

Claiming Financial Losses

Pain and suffering are categorized as non-economic damages. Your lawyer can tell you whether your claim qualifies to pursue these. Consider the examples of economic damages described below.

Property damage

This falls under economic damages, encompassing harm to real or personal property due to someone else’s negligence. It also includes intentional acts, such as theft or vandalism.

You could claim economic damages for the damage or destruction of:

  • Residential property (e.g. home, lawn, driveway, garage)
  • Commercial property (e.g. offices, stores, warehouse, farms, parking lots)
  • Personal property (e.g. motor vehicles, bicycles)

Typical economic damages are the cost of restoring your property to its original condition before the incident. If this is impossible, the at-fault party would be liable for the cost of replacement and the financial losses associated with changes in market value. In the case of an auto accident, an insurance adjuster will assess the economic damages.

Lost wages

When injuries, pain, and suffering prevent you from working, you can suffer grave economic damages. Personal injury lawyers can calculate damages for lost wages and loss of earning capacity.

Lost wages refer to money you would have earned if serious injury had not interrupted your ordinary working schedule. It includes your regular salary, tips, and any vacation time you used for your recovery.

What if a permanent injury or disability means you cannot return to work or earn less than before your accident? You can sue for damages based on your loss of earning capacity.

Your legal team can calculate a dollar amount to request in your personal injury claim, considering factors like:

  • Lost opportunities for promotions and overtime
  • Lost 401K benefits
  • Lost stock options
  • Lost retirement pay

Keeping track of your employment documents and tax statements will help your attorney build your personal injury case.

Wrongful death damages

If you are related to an accident victim, you could qualify for wrongful death damages. Qualifying family members can seek compensation for:

  • Medical bills accrued before the person died
  • Economic damages associated with the end of the victim’s life (e.g. funeral, burial, cremation)
  • The wages the victim was earning and would have earned in the future
  • The lessened value of their inheritance
  • Services provided by their loved one (e.g. cleaning, childcare)

Wrongful death lawsuits are a special type of personal injury action, but New York law prohibits awards of pain and suffering damages in such cases. “Sorrow, mental anguish, injury to feelings, or for loss of companionship” may not be considered.

Hill & Moin invites you and your close family members for a free initial consultation. Speaking with our compassionate staff about your pain and suffering is one of the best ways to learn about your legal options.

Medical bills

Getting proper medical treatment in the United States is often expensive. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most costly auto accident injuries. One research study revealed that TBI medical expenses average between $4,295 and $40,930 per patient annually.

Compared to non-economic damages, medical bills are easier to calculate and track. Therefore relevant to your legal claim, make sure to keep your medical records in a safe place. Note even smaller purchases, such as medication bills and medical travel receipts.

Secure Your Future Now

Our clients know that receiving maximum compensation does not happen by chance. Rather, they have seen firsthand the extraordinary results of our methods and know that working with us is like having a lawyer in the family protecting your rights.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Lawsuit Take?

May 9th, 2023 by

After suffering harm due to someone else’s negligence, many injury victims recognize the need to seek financial compensation. Losses such as physical and emotional pain, missed days of work, and even potentially life-altering injuries can make a substantial economic impact on a victim and his or her family.

Injury victims often worry about the time and stress a potential personal injury lawsuit would take. These worries can prevent a victim from seeking fair compensation for his or her losses after suffering an injury.

At Hill & Moin, our team is determined to use our more than 50 years of combined experience to benefit each of our clients. We are ready to do what it takes to build a strong relationship with our clients like a “lawyer in the family” standing ready to help.

If you or a loved one has been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, contact our firm for a free consultation. The legal advice and guidance you receive can help you feel confident in planning your next steps. Call us today at (212) 668-6000 to schedule your free case evaluation and learn what our personal injury attorneys can do for you. 

Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits

A personal injury can result from a number of situations. While each case may still fall under the category of personal injury law, everyone is different and may have unique circumstances, steps, and timelines.

The lawyers at Hill & Moin have worked with clients who have suffered injuries in various ways, including car accidents, premises liability, workplace accidents, and medical malpractice.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents are the most common reason for personal injury claims in New York. With an estimate of over 3 million vehicles registered in the state, it is no surprise that car accidents are a common occurrence.

Since New York is a no-fault car insurance state, compensation for most accidents is only available through a personal injury claim to a driver’s insurance company. Unless certain conditions are met, a person cannot file a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident to recover additional compensation.

A personal injury lawsuit after a car accident is only possible in the case of a serious injury such as:

  • Significant disfigurement
  • Bone fracture
  • Permanent limitation of an organ or member
  • Significant limitation of a function or system
  • Substantially full disability for a certain number of days

Premises Liability

Injuries that occur on public or private property are common personal injury claims our New York lawyers handle regularly.

Common types of premises liability accidents include the following:

Depending on the circumstances of the incident, a premises liability lawsuit can be filed against all responsible parties. After carefully examining your potential case, your lawyer can identify one or multiple liable parties, such as the person or entity who owns the building or premises, the person or entity who was in charge of managing or maintaining the building or premises, or the government agency that was responsible for the safety of the building or premises.

Workplace Injuries

The majority of workplace injuries fall under workers’ compensation. This coverage is a type of mandatory, no-fault insurance that is in place to compensate employees injured on the job. It provides compensation for losses such as medical expenses, future medical expenses, and limited compensation for lost wages.

This coverage is designed to cover injuries that occur in the workplace as well as injuries or illnesses that develop as a result of work-related duties. In most cases, an injured worker is unable to file a lawsuit to recover damages and must instead stick with the workers’ compensation provided.

However, there are some situations where an injured worker can file a claim outside of workers’ compensation, such as:

  • If the injury was caused by a third party (not a fellow employee or the employer)
  • If the injury was the result of an intentional act

When a lawsuit is an option, the injured worker can recover additional compensation than offered by workers’ comp. A consultation with a personal injury attorney can help you better understand your legal options.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice refers to when a patient suffers an injury or illness due to the negligence of a medical facility or a medical professional.

Types of medical malpractice cases include:

  • Missed or wrong diagnosis
  • Lack of sufficient treatment
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Foreign objects left in the body
  • Insufficient safety measures

A thorough review of the circumstances surrounding your potential case can help your lawyer identify liable parties. He or she may be able to bring a legal case against the medical professional, the medical facility, or the government agency that operates the facility.

The Steps in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Before starting any legal procedures, many injury victims have questions about the personal injury claim process. Let’s take a look at some of the steps a personal injury lawsuit can take. Keep in mind that each case is different and not all cases follow each of these steps.

Getting to Know You

When you work with a personal injury attorney, the first important step is getting to know you and your story. Even though the lawyers at our firm are well-versed in personal injury law and have extensive experience handling these cases, we don’t know you.

During your initial consultation and following conversations, your personal injury lawyer will ask questions and diligently listen to better understand your needs. The better we know our clients and their families, the better we can offer personalized, quality representation.

Gathering Evidence

An essential step of a personal injury claim process is gathering sufficient evidence. Depending on the type of personal injury and the circumstances surrounding the incident, the type and amount of evidence that is available can vary.

Your lawyer may be able to find evidence such as:

  • Video surveillance footage
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Maintenance logs
  • Medical reports
  • Police reports
  • Employee interviews

Collecting sufficient evidence is essential for proving both liability and damages. Certain pieces of evidence can point to negligence that either contributed to or directly caused the injuries.

Other evidence can be used in a personal injury case to prove the extent of damages the victim suffered as a result of his or her injuries.


During the discovery process, each side has the opportunity to see the opposition’s legal claims and defense. Important information and documentation are shared by each party, and depositions take place.

Although depositions happen outside of the courtroom, individuals are still under oath when answering a lawyer’s questions. Expert witnesses may be selected as well to provide insight and opinions on their subject of knowledge.

For example, in the case of a car accident, an accident reconstruction expert may be consulted. In the case of medical malpractice, a medical professional may give valuable insight into the circumstances of the injury.

Mediation and Arbitration

In order to come to a settlement agreement without the need to go to trial, mediation and/or arbitration may be used.

During mediation, both sides meet with a neutral mediator whose job is to help them reach a settlement agreement. This process can help lawyers decide whether a civil trial is the best option or whether an out-of-court settlement is better for the client’s interests.

During arbitration, both sides meet with a neutral third party in a setting that resembles a trial. Instead of both parties being able to meet a mutual agreement, the arbitrator has the power to make a final decision in the case and outline a binding settlement.


The majority of personal injury cases do not make it to trial. However, we understand that, at times, a trial is necessary in order to recover fair compensation for our clients.

The actual trial process consists of a number of phases, including the following:

  • Selecting trial dates
  • Selecting a judge and jury
  • Presenting evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Reaching a verdict

Often, the actual trial itself is not a lengthy process, sometimes taking place over a few days.

Factors That Can Affect the Timeline of a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Now that you know the steps that are involved, how long does a personal injury lawsuit take? Each case is different, and there are many factors that can affect the timeline. However, while the belief may be that lawsuits are long and time-consuming, that is not always the case.

The experience of two of Hill & Moin’s recent clients illustrates this. One client who suffered a catastrophic injury when struck by a garbage truck as a pedestrian recovered his $4.85 million settlement in less than 1 year. Another client, who was injured as a passenger in a vehicle that lost control and struck a tree, was able to recover her settlement in 6 months.

Let’s consider three factors that may affect the timeline of personal injury cases: the statute of limitations, the length of the healing process, and the type of settlement.

Statute of Limitations

Each state has a statute of limitations, or a time limit, regarding personal injury cases. This means that an injured victim must begin the legal process within a certain amount of time in order to recover compensation for his or her losses.

The circumstances of each case can affect the length of time a person has to file a lawsuit.

Some common factors that can either lengthen or shorten the statute of limitations for a personal injury case include the following:

  • If the injured victim was a minor or disabled on the date of the injury
  • If the injury was not immediately obvious or detected
  • If the liable party was a government agency
  • If the liable party was a medical professional

Since, in some cases, the time limit to file is very short, consulting with a knowledgeable, local personal injury attorney is essential in ensuring all documents are filed on time.

How Long it Takes to Heal

Each injury is unique, and each person’s recovery process is as well. Since a personal injury settlement can include compensation for medical bills, it is important to understand the full extent of an injury before accepting a settlement offer.

In many cases, healing is not linear. There may be a period of improvement followed by a period of setbacks. Due to this, it is important to wait until maximum medical improvement (MMI) is achieved.

MMI may not mean that the person has fully healed. However, it means that the patient’s medical condition is stable and changes to his or her physical or emotional condition are not expected.

The amount of time it takes for an injury victim to reach MMI can influence how long his or her lawsuit takes.

When the Settlement is Reached

Another factor that determines the length of a personal injury case is how the settlement is achieved. At any point in the steps mentioned above, a settlement can be agreed upon by both parties.

If a personal injury trial is required, there are preparations that must happen beforehand. Additionally, court availability and other factors out of the control of the victim can impact the amount of time the case takes as well.
