Our Bronx & Westchester personal injury attorneys help people injured in many different types of accidents, including all of the following:
Bronx Automobile Accidents
New York’s no-fault insurance system presents many complicated issues for people injured in motorcycle, truck and car accidents. We can help you navigate the complicated MVAIC procedure and obtain no-fault benefits, including situations when you were injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist. In addition, if suffered a “serious injury” under New York law, we can help you pursue a claim against the negligent driver to make sure you are fully compensated for the damages caused.
Bronx Product Liability
Product makers have a duty to release products that are free from design or manufacturing defects, and that contain adequate safety warnings and instructions for their safe use. Manufacturers who violate this duty may be liable for injuries caused by unsafe products under a number of different legal theories, including strict liability and breach of warranty.
Bronx Slip & Fall
Property owners have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe from hazards to people coming on to the property. Restaurants, grocery stores and department stores must constantly inspect their stores and keep the aisles clear of dangers such as food or drink spills, items falling from shelves, or trip and fall hazards on the ground. When a dangerous condition is not noticed and remedied in a reasonable time, the property owner can be liable for any injury that results.
Bronx Workplace Injuries
A common misconception is that Workers’ Compensation is the exclusive recourse for someone who has been injured on the job. To the contrary, there are many instances when a third party is responsible for the on-the-job injury, and not the employer. In these cases, it is possible to hold that third party liable for their negligence or wrongful conduct, in addition to pursuing a workers’ compensation claim. For instance, an accident can occur while the employee is on the clock but working off-site and injured on another’s unsafe premises, or in an automobile accident while making deliveries or picking up supplies. Even at the workplace, an accident may be due to a defective product which was defective when it left the manufacturer’s control, making the product maker liable under product liability theories.
Bronx Medical Malpractice
Our attorneys pursue monetary recovery for individuals negligently treated by physicians or other medical providers. Medical malpractice cases are often very complicated and require experienced attorneys who understand the importance of obtaining expert testimony that can be communicated to the jury in a convincing yet understandable manner. If you have been the victim of a botched surgery, medication error, misdiagnosis, or other form of malpractice, we may be able to help you get the compensation necessary to fix the problem and compensate you for your lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages.
