Negligence is a simple legal theory, and it’s the foundation for most personal injury lawsuits. At its base, the idea behind negligence is that we are all members of a shared society. In this community, we owe each other certain duties. Paramount among our responsibilities is to control our actions as much as possible so we don’t hurt others. When someone else fails to behave in a proper way, and other people are injured, we say that they have been “careless.” Personal injury lawyers say they have been “negligent.” Victims of negligence are entitled to pursue those by whom they have been harmed in court. In a personal injury lawsuit, victims become “plaintiffs,” and are allowed to claim damages including:
Without performing a thorough review of your situation, there’s no way for us to tell you how much your case may be worth.

According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, 169,177 people were injured in New York car accidents in 2013 alone. Pedestrians, drivers, passengers and cyclists – we’re all at risk. More troubling?

Other work accidents:
We routinely put our lives in the hands of physicians and nurses, hoping that these trained professionals will do everything in their power to keep us healthy. But when doctors and health care workers fail to live up to their rigorous code of conduct, patients can be severely injured. The category of “medical malpractice” covers a wide range of negligent actions, including:
If you were hurt by a care provider who failed to live up to your expectations, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice.
Unintentional falls are America’s leading cause of injury. And while many of us assume that slip and falls are “blameless” accidents, that’s rarely the case. If you fell and were injured, your case may come under the category of civil law known as “premises liability.” Property owners have a duty to repair foreseeable hazards before someone gets hurt. At the least, they must warn visitors of these dangers in advance.
Americans buy more consumer products than any other nation in the world. In exchange for our business, manufacturers implicitly agree to provide us with goods and services free of avoidable defects. Despite the fact that this duty is enshrined in US civil law, defective products cost Americans more than $1 trillion in health care and other associated costs every year. Once a product’s defects become apparent, its manufacturer will usually issue a recall. But even consumers injured due to recalled products may still be able to file a product liability claim.
Defective product, device, and drug cases include:
