So what exactly is a personal injury accident? Well, there are many accidents that can fall under personal injury law. Just a few examples of why clients come to us include being involved in one of the following accidents:
slip & falls
In each case, the accident was caused by another party who behaved in a negligent manner.
What Is Negligence?
In personal injury law, negligence occurs when someone fails to act the way that a reasonable person would in order to keep those around them safe. For example, if someone who has been drinking for six hours and is heavily intoxicated gets behind the wheel, they are acting negligently. If, while driving drunk, they hit another car and cause injuries to those inside, they can be held legally responsible for the losses their actions have caused.

Fighting For The Maximum Compensation Possible
If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver or defective product, our experienced team of attorneys can help.
It's no secret that the injuries sustained by car accident victims can be extensive. Common injuries include spinal damage, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, burns, and deep lacerations - all of which can require expensive medical care. Most drivers know that if they get hurt, their car insurance company will pay for some of the medical bills but few realize how little of those bills are typically covered. Once a policy reaches its limits, the insurance company stops paying and when a victim is seriously injured, that can happen on just the first visit to the hospital.
Our experienced team of lawyers understands how stressful and upsetting this time is. Not only are you struggling to heal physically but now you are struggling to stay afloat financially. You are likely also wondering if there is any way you can obtain compensation from the party whose negligence caused you harm. There is.
Car accident lawsuits can provide the plaintiff with full compensation not just for their medical bills but also for their lost wages, physical pain and suffering, and emotional trauma, but obtaining this is difficult without the help of an attorney. Our law firm has helped hundreds of auto accident victims by handling all of the legal paperwork, speaking with the insurance companies, collecting evidence, and then representing the client in court. We prepare our clients from the very beginning and keep the lines of communication open so that each client knows exactly where their case is at throughout the entire process.

Experienced Lawyers With Excellent Record Of Obtaining Compensation
Were you hurt while at work? It doesn't matter what industry you work in, nearly every employer in New York is required to have workers' compensation insurance for their employees. The problem is that insurance companies don't actually want to pay claims, instead, they want to keep the money for the company and so they often train their adjusters to deny claims for even the simplest mistake made on a claim form.
Our legal team is completely familiar with both the process of filing a claim and also with the tricks that the insurance companies try to deny claims with. We can ensure that the initial claim is filed properly and we can speak with the insurance company on your behalf. In addition to this, we can determine if you are eligible for a personal injury lawsuit.
Workers who have filed for workers' compensation are not allowed to file a lawsuit against their employer, however, if another person or party contributed to the accident which caused them harm, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against them in order to obtain compensation for the losses that workers' comp doesn't cover.
