If you’ve been involved in a car accident – or any other kind of vehicle accident – the fallout can be catastrophic. First, there’s making sure any injuries you’ve sustained are dealt with correctly and promptly. Then, there are material losses to consider – a task that’s especially difficult when you’re dealing with an insurance company.
Of course, there are also ongoing psychological factors to think about. Even a minor accident can be extremely traumatic.
Our dedicated personal injury attorneys understand the complexities of a motor vehicle accident – so we’re perfectly placed to support you towards a full recovery, no matter who was at fault.
The idea of bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit can feel extremely intimidating. As one person against a team of medical professionals and insurance company attorneys, you might feel like the odds are stacked against you.
This is exactly why you need an experienced and highly focused law firm on your side. If you’ve got a personal injury case, we’re in your corner every step of the way. We’ll make sure the justice system works for you – not against you.
We can’t correct a medical professional’s mistakes – but we can make sure you get the justice and financial compensation you deserve.
Not all NYC personal injury attorneys operate to our extremely high standards. If you’ve trusted a personal injury law firm to represent you and you feel like mistakes were made, we’ll use our expert knowledge to put things right.
Has your New York personal injury lawyer missed a statute of limitations deadline? Perhaps they’re displaying inaptitude of unethical behaviour? Maybe they’re decided to hike your fees with no discussion? Are they talking about your case with others or making decisions on your behalf?
If something just doesn’t feel right, it’s a good idea to seek legal assistance from a firm who you can trust to take an objective look at your situation.
You don’t have to look far in New York to see large scale construction taking place – it’s an industry worth billions of dollars in the city every year. The trouble is, even with big budgets, firms and individuals can take dangerous shortcuts.
From faulty machinery and scaffolding, through to negligence, falling objects, and even poorly secured old buildings – New York City construction sites can be extremely dangerous places to be.
If you’ve been injured on a construction site, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to guide you through your rights. Even if you feel like you are partly to blame – or you don’t have the correct documentation, we’ll fight for you.
If you’ve been given permission to enter or be on a premises of any kind, the property owner has a responsibility to make sure you’re safe. This could be a residential home owner – or even the company in charge of maintenance of a public space.
Unfortunately though, accidents happen – and these accidents can result in physical injuries and on-going medical problems.
From apartment accidents, dog attacks, and elevator accidents through to fires, explosions, exposure to chemicals, slips and trips, and even inadequate security – we’ll pursue every personal injury claim to make sure you’re fairly compensated if something has happened.
At first glance, sexual harassment might not look like something personal injury lawyers would deal with – but this couldn’t be further from the truth. If you’ve received any kind of unwanted attention, you’ll know it can lead to extreme emotional distress, physical symptoms, and significant medical expenses.
We appreciate that sexual harassment cases and similar legal issues can be difficult for the victim to talk about – but we work especially hard to make sure you’re surrounded by a safe attorney-client relationship where the issue can be talked about in absolute confidence.
No matter who you are or what the circumstances are, we firmly believe you shouldn’t have to put up with any intrusion of this kind. You deserve the best personal injury lawyers on your side.
As parents, we understand the emotions involved when a child is injured – and we passionately work towards getting justice whenever an child of any age comes to any kind of harm.
Dealing with an injured child is different to representing an injured adult. There are different timelines involved, some adult input needed, different rules around testifying, and special rules around settlement decisions. What’s more, parents or guardians can also claim for time away from work dealing with the case.
We understand all of these differences – and we understand how to delicately and compassionately communicate with children for the best possible outcome.
