We want to be the law firm where injured parties contact when they want a personal injury attorney who offers personalized legal services to NYC residents and keeps the client in the driver’s seat.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Because negligence harms innocent parties in various situations, we take on the following types of personal injury claims:

If you suspect someone else’s negligence contributed to the harm you suffered, you could have a personal injury claim.

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-Fall Accidents
You could slip or trip and fall at work, while grocery shopping, on a walkway or stairwell, in someone’s home, or in a parking lot. No matter where falls happen, you may endure extensive and expensive injuries. If so, the property owner could owe you financial compensation.  Before dismissing aches and pains experienced after slipping and falling on another’s property, you deserve to understand how such injuries affect your life. Even minor injuries may have significant consequences, ranging from impairing your ability to earn a living to limiting your capacity to enjoy your favorite activities. Examples of common financial losses resulting from falls include:
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost income from reduced earning capacity and missing work
  • Current and future medical care expenses
You must also account for the psychological effects of injuries that could qualify for pain-and-suffering damages in personal injury lawsuits . A mental health professional may help you understand the extent of emotional and mental harm you endure because of another’s thoughtless behavior.

Car Accidents

Car Accidents

After a minor fender bender, you may think you feel fine. If you do not let a doctor examine you and neglect to file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company policy, you could bear liability for injuries you sustained because of the other driver’s disregard. Rather than take your chances, we recommend exploring your case with help from experienced personal injury attorneys.

Immediately after an accident, parties should check themselves for injuries and call the paramedics if someone needs emergency medical care. Next, parties should call the police to the scene to create a police report and help establish fault. Drivers should document the accident scene by taking images of their vehicles, damage, injuries, and gathering witness statements.

Even if the at-fault driver has insurance, the policy may not be enough to cover all resulting damages and injuries. While the car crash victim could receive an insurance settlement, it may not account for all the harm the person endured, which could leave her or him on the financial hook for the remaining expenses. With so much at stake, it makes sense to consult with personal injury lawyers and create a legal strategy.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites come with various hazards for employers to educate workers on and protect their workforce from. When employees harm themselves, they could qualify for workers’ compensation to take care of resulting medical bills, time off work, medication, and transportation. Even if the worker contributed to her or his own harm, she or he could still receive compensation.

Examples of common construction accident cases include:

  • Ladder and scaffold accidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Power tool accidents
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Forklift accidents

No matter which category your construction site accident falls into, we feel confident we have the resources and experience necessary to handle your case with diligence and consideration.

Sometimes, workers’ comp settlements do not cover all of an injured worker’s damages. Employees may also have a third-party lawsuit against negligent equipment manufacturers, general contractors, architects or subcontractors. Either way, harmed parties may have little choice but to turn their legal situation over to legal representatives experienced in construction law and regulations.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death

Rather than injury, negligent acts sometimes end in death. Surviving family members could qualify to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages for medical expenses, the deceased’s lost wages, burial and funeral expenses, and the decedent’s physical and emotional pain and suffering.

Those who qualify for wrongful death damages include the surviving spouse, minor children, and the parents of a minor child who died. Surviving family members may also qualify for punitive damages if the judge or jury feels the at-fault party engaged in especially deplorable behavior.

Work-Related Injuries

Work-Related Injuries

Even if a person does not work in a hazardous environment like a construction zone, she or he could still suffer a workplace injury that warrants help from a skilled personal injury lawyer. Workers’ comp insurance only covers a portion of an injured person’s wages while he or she recovers. Compensation depends on injury severity and the harm suffered. To cover all their bases and protect their legal rights, injured employees should speak with personal injury lawyers
