NEW YORK PERSONAL INJURY PRACTICE AREAS

It is a fact that people sustain injuries daily, often due to the negligence of others. These accidents can result in serious injuries that can forever change the victim’s life. If a person is injured due to another person’s negligence, the injured party has the right to seek monetary compensation for his or her damages. A personal injury attorney can help with these types of accidents:

Get Started with Your Case

01.

Car Accident

When you’re involved in a car accident, the impact on your life can be devastating. While burdened with the pain and suffering from your injuries, you are also likely to lose earnings, suffer property damage, and accrue medical bills. As if that were not bad enough, the process of dealing with large insurance companies is complex and frustrating for most people.

Our lawyers understand the legal and insurance issues surrounding car accidents. Our extensive knowledge and years of experience handling auto accident claims in the New York metro area and Nassau County make our lawyers for accidents the best choice for you.

02.

Bicycle Accidents

Despite a growing number of laws and traffic regulations that are meant to keep bike riders safe, they remain particularly vulnerable to accidents and resulting serious and sometimes deadly injuries.

03.

Construction Accidents

Often construction companies and employers will threaten injured workers by using their immigration status to force them to stay quiet and not seek compensation for their injuries. The fact is that your immigration status does not matter. All injured workers, regardless of their immigration status, are entitled to the same protections under New York State laws. This means that an injured worker can sue for compensation for his or her injuries and obtain Worker’s Compensation benefits regardless of immigration status. It cannot be held against you.
04.

Medical Malpractice

Although every medical procedure carries some element of risk, all medical patients have the right to receive competent medical treatment. When patients do not receive competent medical treatment and suffer injuries as a result, they are the victims of medical malpractice and are entitled to just compensation.

05.

Pedestrian Accidents

Getting around on foot in New York has grown in popularity over the last few years. The high costs of owning a car, New York’s traffic, and concerns about the environment have all contributed to more and more New Yorkers abandoning their cars. New Yorkers are choosing to travel within New York by foot. While there are many benefits to walking as an alternative to driving, the fast moving and busy streets of New York can be very dangerous for pedestrians.
06.

Premises Liability

Some of the most common types of premises accidents for which a property owner may be held liable include:

  • Elevator Defects
  • Retail Businesses
  • Dog Bites
  • Stairway Defects
  • Negligent Security
  • Parking Lot Accidents
  • Private Home/Apartment buildings
07.

Sidewalk Accidents

We employ a team of investigators who go out to accident scenes to conduct full investigations that include taking photographs and measurements of an accident due to sidewalk conditions. Our investigators also locate and interview potential witnesses. Our personal injury law firm also investigates and determines if other accidents had previously occurred at the same location and the owner of the sidewalk was aware of the problem but chose to ignore it.
08.

Slip & Fall Claims

Slip, trip and fall accident cases can occur anywhere such as in a building, parking lot, supermarket, shopping mall, stairway, or in an elevator. The law imposes a legal duty upon all owners of the property to keep their property reasonably safe and free from conditions that can cause accidents or injuries. An owner that fails to live up to this duty may be held legally responsible if someone is injured as a result of failure to keep property in a safe condition.
09.

Snow and Ice Accidents

New York has laws that require that property owners clear their sidewalks and apply salt and/or sand promptly after a snowfall. Many property owners live up to this responsibility and clear their sidewalks on a timely basis. Unfortunately, we have all encountered properties where the snow has not been cleared even long after the snow has ceased to fall. Such owners can be legally liable to a person that sustains an injury as a result of slipping and falling on their property.
