What Damages Can I Recover in a Trademark Infringement Lawsuit?
If someone has been unlawfully using your federally registered trademark‚ you may be eligible for damages in a trademark infringement lawsuit. To file a trademark infringement lawsuit‚ you should get the help of an experienced New York trademark attorney.
An attorney can investigate your infringement case and may be able to help you seek damages for lost business earnings. Your New York trademark attorney has the resources to investigate the nature of the infringement and the extent of the damages in order to construct a comprehensive case.
If the court determines that the infringing party copied your trademark intentionally‚ or that they should have been aware of your federally registered mark‚ they may have to give you the profits realized by the use of your protected trademark. In addition‚ the court may order the infringing party to pay you punitive damages and cover your attorney's fees.
Just like with any property‚ you have the right to protect your trademark. To find out what you may be entitled to in a trademark infringement lawsuit‚ you can contact a New York trademark attorney. An attorney will be able to help you file the proper paperwork for a trademark infringement lawsuit‚ and can analyze the potential business you may have lost.
