How Do The Personal Injury Lawyers Of Banville Law Help Bronx Accident Victims?
When a person or group’s negligence causes someone else to be harmed, personal injury laws allow the victim to seek compensation for their losses through a personal injury lawsuit. Compensation may be obtained for:
A lawsuit may seem like an extreme step to take, however, it may be the only way that an accident victim can remain financially stable while paying for the medical care that they require.
In every personal injury case, a statute of limitations applies. This means that the accident victim has a short time frame during which they can file a legal complaint. If the complaint is filed outside of this window, the plaintiff will no longer be able to seek compensation from the responsible party. That’s why it’s vitally important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as quickly as possible.
Construction Accident Victims Should Always Consult An Attorney
You’ve been injured in a construction accident and now you’re realizing that any payments that you receive from workers’ compensation simply won’t be enough to cover your expenses. Or, perhaps your workers’ comp claim has been denied outright. What options do you have and how can you recover the compensation that you need?
A construction accident lawsuit may provide a plaintiff with full compensation for both their past and future medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, and emotional turmoil. The total amount that can be recovered through a carefully negotiated settlement or verdict varies between cases since the losses sustained by each plaintiff are different. Lawsuits can be filed in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.
While a construction accident lawsuit cannot be filed against an employer, it can be filed against a third-party whose negligence caused the accident. For example, if a worker is electrocuted because a contractor was responsible for cutting off the electric to a certain area and failed, the injured worker may be able to file a lawsuit against the contractor.
If you believe you may be eligible to file a construction accident lawsuit, contact our experienced construction accident lawyers. We offer free case reviews to injured construction workers who have been hurt on the job.
Car Accident Lawyer Making At-Fault Drivers Pay

A car accident lawsuit can provide all victims with the compensation that is needed to pay for medical treatments and even past and future lost wages if the victims are unable to go back to work. The experienced lawyers at Banville Law have successfully helped hundreds of Bronx accident victims pursue legal action against the responsible party.

Don’t Let A Slip & Fall Accident In The Bronx Stop You In Your Tracks
A slip and fall accident might seem like a minor incident but those who have suffered serious injury, as a result, understand that a slip and fall accident can be life-changing. Common injuries sustained by victims include:
traumatic brain injury
The medical treatments required for these injuries can be quite costly, even if a patient has insurance. So how do slip and fall victims recover the money they need to pay for their medical bills? This is where premises liability laws come in.
Under premises liability laws, property owners must maintain their property so that visitors are safe. This includes making regular checks of the property at reasonable intervals to determine if a hazard exists. What is considered reasonable will vary from property to property since no two places are exactly alike. If a property owner or manager does determine that a hazard exists, they must immediately fix it or place warning signs around it.
If you or a loved one suspect that you may be eligible to pursue legal action against a property owner, contact Banville Law today. We will review your case and present you with all of our legal options.

Our Attorneys Stand Strong Against Negligent Doctors & Hospitals
Seeking medical care means that a patient is feeling ill enough that they know they need a medical professional to help them. It also means that the patient is trusting their physician, pharmacist, nurse or other treatment provider to obtain the correct diagnosis and offer them the best treatment available.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen.
Each year, thousands of New Yorkers are permanently damaged and their lives put at risk because of medical negligence. Although the medical professional who made a grievous mistake likely didn’t intend to cause them harm, medical malpractice has occurred and the patient has the legal right to seek compensation for their injuries.
It’s not always clear that medical malpractice has occurred which is why it’s important to always consult with an experienced attorney, like those at Banville Law.
Children & Parents Impacted By A Birth Injury Can Take Legal Action
One moment your child is perfect and has their entire future ahead of them. The next, that future has been altered irrevocably because a medical professional made a mistake.
Birth injuries are surprisingly common and can result in the need for thousands, if not millions of dollars in medical care for a newborn child. The law allows the parents of a newborn impacted by a birth injury to seek compensation on their behalf through a lawsuit.
While it’s true that a birth injury lawsuit may take several months or even more than a year to reach its conclusion, this is typically the only way for a family to recover the compensation they require to get the best care possible for their child. At Banville Law, we understand that this is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life, both emotionally and financially which is why our team works with Bronx residents on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t pay our law firm until we win your case. If we don’t win, we don’t get paid.

Work Injuries – Who Can Mott Haven Victims File A Lawsuit Against?
You’ve been hurt at work and now you’ve discovered the painful truth – that workers’ compensation won’t be enough. How can you pay for your medical treatments, pay the regular bills, and recover the wages you’ve lost from not being about to return to work? Our attorneys can help you answer these questions and explain the process of filing a work injury lawsuit.
While workers’ compensation prevents an injured worker from filing a lawsuit against their employer, it does not prevent them from taking legal action against another negligent party. To give you an example, if an employee drives a delivery truck and they are involved in a car accident caused by another driver, they may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver of the other vehicle.
