At our firm, we handle many types of personal injury cases, including claims based on:

- Slip and fall accidents;

- Wrongful death;
- Medical malpractice; and
- Nursing home neglect.
When an accident is caused by someone else’s failure to use reasonable care, that person or entity may be held accountable by using the legal theory of negligence. Negligence is a failure to take reasonable care under the circumstances, protecting other people from foreseeable risks of harm. Whether the standard has been met is a fact-specific question that requires a thorough investigation. Our attorneys can help you explore the circumstances of your accident and gather many types of evidence to bolster your claim.
In order to establish a defendant’s negligence, a victim must prove that they were hurt as a direct result of the defendant’s failure to use reasonable care. For example, a driver may have failed to yield at an intersection, causing a crash in which someone else was hurt. In another situation, a store may have failed to post “wet floor” signs while cleaning up a spill, causing a customer to slip and fall. Damages available in these claims may account for both economic and non-economic losses, ranging from past and future medical bills and lost income to property damage, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium.
If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party. Under New York law, the responsibility for filing a wrongful death claim rests with the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. The claim may seek damages not only for the estate but also for certain surviving family members, such as the victim’s spouse and children.
Personal injury and wrongful death cases are often complex, so it is important to act quickly. We offer our clients the ability to make flexible appointments to fit their schedule. If you are unable to travel due to your injuries, we can send a lawyer to meet with you at your home or the hospital.Contact a Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyer in the Bronx or Queens
