Types of Brooklyn accidents we handle
With nearly 30 years of experience serving Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, New York City, Manhattan, the Bronx, and all surrounding communities, our accident attorneys have worked with many of the same types of personal injury claim hundreds of times. The following are some of the most common types of accidents that cause clients to seek legal representation:
You may sue any third party that contributed to your accident at a construction site other than your employer. Employers pay into New York’s workers’ compensation, which in turn covers your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages.
Operating on the wrong person or body part, leaving a foreign instrument inside of a patient, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, and adverse drug reactions are all common types of medical malpractice. However, you must prove that the provider had a duty of care towards you and failed in that duty.
A motorcycle colliding with any type of vehicle can cause life-changing serious injuries. Don’t hesitate to contact our law offices if the compensation you receive from no-fault insurance is inadequate.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Your own insurance company should pay medical expenses and property damage even if you share no blame in causing the car accident. You can pursue a personal injury claim if you have a permanent injury, lose functioning of a body part, or meet other criteria specific to New York personal injury law.
Property owners have an obligation to prevent injuries on their premises. You may have a legitimate claim if a home or business owner failed to maintain a safe property or anticipate problems that could cause injury.
An accident with a commercial truck can cause devastating injuries or death. Contact us right away to help determine whether to sue the driver, the motor carrier, manufacturer, repair technician, or another party involved in the truck’s operation.
Slip and Fall
A slip and fall injury typically involves tripping over a misplaced item or in a poorly maintained area such as loose carpeting in an office building.
Although you normally can’t sue your employer directly, you can bring a claim against a third party and are free to work with a personal injury attorney if you feel dissatisfied with the treatment you have received to date. Our Workers’ Compensation lawyer has over 30 years of experience.
If a loved one died due to the negligent actions of another party, a personal representative of your family may initiate a wrongful death lawsuit within two years.
