Types of personal injury lawsuits our Manhattan injury law firm handles
If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, we will fight fiercely for the compensation you deserve. We pursue claims for:
Airplane accidents often have a much greater effect on families than most realize. We fight for passengers (and airline) workers who have been injured due to aircraft design and manufacturing defects, a pilot's failure to follow operational guidelines or procedures, or catastrophic crashes.
Bikes accidents often lead to much more serious injuries because cyclists take on the brunt of a vehicle's impact.
Every day people rely on the bus to get them where they need to be without injury or harm. Unfortunately, accidents happen and bus accidents can be serious. If you have been injured in a Manhattan bus accident, we will help get your life back on track by pursuing the compensation to cover death benefits, property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering.
Manhattan is notoriously known for crowded streets and high traffic. If you have been involved in a Manhattan car accident, we will help you pursue your claim for damages from the other driver’s insurance company and ensure that they are held accountable.

Construction Site Accidents
There are thousands of construction projects underway in New York City at any given moment. Construction sites are notoriously dangerous and accidents happen on a monthly basis. From scaffolding to heavy machinery entrapment and fall accidents, construction accidents can result in horrific injuries — which may lead to third-party lawsuits or filing workers’ compensation claims. Construction is among the most hazardous industries for employees; falls account for one of the leading causes of death or injury with construction work being done.
Without airbags or seatbelts, and riding a much smaller vehicle, motorcyclists are uniquely vulnerable in the event of an accident. Common types of injuries that are suffered in motorcycle accidents include road rash or abrasion from contact with the pavement, broken bones (arms, legs, ribs and spine), and brain injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI).
A pedestrian accident may occur when someone is struck by a vehicle, slips and falls on the sidewalk or steps off of an escalator. The most common causes of these accidents are careless driving (speeding) and distracted walking/driving. Pedestrians who have been injured in such incidents often incur significant medical bills from their injuries which can be

In New York, when a person is injured as the result of negligent, reckless, or intentional acts by someone else, the person who caused that injury may be liable for damages.

They may leave behind medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of inheritance, and the cost of burial.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much is my Manhattan personal injury claim worth?
One of the most common questions our personal injury clients ask is "how much is my case worth?" The answer is not one size fits all, and it's often hard to give a general estimate.
In order to evaluate your claim, we need details about where you were when the accident happened, what type of injuries you sustained from the crash or injury event that led to your personal injury, whether there are any witnesses who saw how the incident occurred (including pictures), and more information about other related events that may have contributed to your injuries.
Available compensation may include:
- Future medical costs,
- Physical therapy, in-home care, or similar Rehabilitative care
- Medical devices, prescription drugs, and any in-home modifications that may be necessary,
- Lost current wages and your lost future earning ability,
- Pain and suffering,
- Emotional distress caused by the accident itself,
- Loss of enjoyment of life or loss of opportunities
Once we understand more details of the injury and its effect on your life, we will be able to provide more specific information about the potential value of your claim based on our experience with similar types of accidents and injuries.
