Areas of Practice
motor vehicle accidents
Whether you or a loved one was injured as a result of a rear impact, intersection accident or any other negligent operation of a motor vehicle, we can assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve. We have also represented pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists injured due to someone's negligent operation of their vehicle. In addition to pursuing a negligence claim against the at-fault party, we will also assist you in obtaining benefits through the applicable no-fault carrier. These benefits include medical expense coverage and lost earnings.
dog and animal attacks
Unfortunately, many people, especially children, fall victim to dog and other animal attacks. Often times, the dog owner may be a neighbor or even family member or friend. Under certain circumstances, the owners of these animals are liable for the damages their pets inflict on other people. What many people don't realize is that the dog owner's home or business liability insurance carrier may provide coverage for these types of attacks. Often times the injuries result in scarring, permanent disability and severe trauma. We have successfully represented many such victims and can assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve.
slip or trip and fall accidents
Many people suffer injuries as a result of slipping or tripping on someone else's property or a public sidewalk. Many of these accidents are caused by a failure to properly maintain the premises. We have handled cases involving snow and ice, spilled liquids on floors, defective steps and walkways, and raised or uneven sidewalks slabs. The owners and maintenance companies of these properties are legally responsible for any injuries you suffered as a result of their negligence.
Many people suffer grave injuries, and often times loss of life, due to the malpractice of a treating doctor or physician. Whether a doctor fails to timely diagnose a medical condition, or is negligent performing a routine medical procedure or surgery, you may be entitled to compensation from the provider's medical malpractice insurance policy. Feel free to contact us to determine whether you have a compensable claim.
construction site accidents
Construction site workers are particularly prone to injury due to the nature of the work they perform on a daily basis. There are particulars laws in place, such as the New York State Labor Law, which provide additional protection to construction workers. We recently recovered $1,500,000 for a welder working on a construction site who suffered back injuries due to a fall. We have extensive experience handling these types of cases and can assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve.
workers' compensation claims
If you have suffered an injury while in the course of your employment or in furtherance of your job duties and responsibilities, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Please contact us so that we may assist you in ascertaining whether you are entitled to benefits.
