As you can imagine, personal injuries come in all sorts of forms. However, there are a variety of injuries that are much more common than others, including some of the following.
A slip and fall is a type of premise liability, which is a personal injury resulting from a failure to maintain a premise adequately. In Queens, one common type of slip and fall is due to icy or slippery walkways during the winter months. On public, semi-public, and even private and government properties, there is an individual or team that is responsible to maintain walkways for safe access. If the responsible party fails at this duty of maintaining a safe walkway in all conditions, then they should be held liable for any injuries that result from this improper maintenance.
Car accidents are extremely common in New York and the United States in general. In fact, between January 1, 2016 and January 1, 2020, the NYC Open Data Portal has more than 163,000 car accidents recorded in Queens alone, with 166 people killed and more than 37,000 reported injuries in this period of time. If you are injured in a car accident, do not let yourself become just another statistic. We will help you get the compensation that you deserve so that you can move forward with your life with the financial support that you need and deserve.
Medical malpractice is a serious issue that no patient hopes to ever encounter. When you are working with a medical team, you have every right to expect that you will be handled by experienced professionals who are operating in your best interests and with the intention of minimizing harm to you. Unfortunately, an alarming number of patients across the United States are injured and even killed, each year due to improper medical treatment such as surgical errors, misdiagnoses, and more.
Over the past 4 years, there have been (in addition to the car accident data reported above) more than 2700 injuries to cyclists during accidents involving cars, 11 fatal cycling accidents, and 100 pedestrian fatalities from car accidents. This is just a small sampling of some alarming trends overall that indicate the threat to pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycle riders, and drivers when it comes to traveling in and around Queens.
With these statistics in mind, it is important to understand that there is a legal team available to help you through your case and get you the money that you need in order to move forward with your life.
After an accident that you are injured in and that someone else caused, you are right to want to learn more about how you can get the legal support that you need and deserve.

While you are focusing on your recovery, you can be confident that there is an aggressive and experienced legal team representing your needs.

If you are involved in an accident that is covered by an insurance policy, you will need to file your claim with the insurance company and then deal with a claims adjuster while they investigate the accident. We will be able to handle all communications with the claims adjuster, advise you on how to make statements about the accident, and then will be able to handle the necessary negotiations once the claims investigation is concluded so that you can get the money you truly deserve, not just the money that an insurance company hopes to pay you.
