Having recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for injured clients, we can be trusted to handle your case and strengthen your claim so we can secure the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
It makes sense that motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in the United States, as countless individuals rely on cars and other vehicles to commute to and from work, while running errands, and for other important activities. There are more than 6 million car accidents in the U.S. every year that injure around 3 million people, and more than 2 million drivers suffer permanent injuries.
Motor vehicle accidents can involve not only passenger cars, but motorcycles, buses, and trucks as well. A wide range of injuries can result from motor vehicle accidents depending on the nature of the situation and who is involved. For example, motorcycle accidents tend to involve more serious injuries to motorcyclists because they lack outer protection like seat belts. Truck accidents also are more likely to cause catastrophic injuries because of their size, weight, and force.
It’s important to seek medical treatment immediately after your accident, even if you’re not in pain, as some injuries can take time to show up. You should then hire a personal injury attorney to handle communication with the insurance company and make sure you’re not taking a settlement offer that is less than what you deserve.
Many people are aware that the construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, as there are many on-site hazards and dangers that can injure or kill workers. However, just because your industry is dangerous doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve to be protected by your employers or managers. Whether you’ve fallen from a ladder or scaffolding or have had your limbs crushed by heavy machinery, there may be a party at fault for your accident that should be brought to justice.
Our team can investigate your accident to determine who is liable for your injuries. In construction accidents, employers, manager, site owners, and even manufacturers can be held liable for damages. We can also determine if you’re entitled to seeking workers’ compensation benefits and disability insurance.
What is the Statute of Limitations in New York?
All states have statute of limitations when it comes to filing personal injury claims, or a certain amount of time that individuals have to file a claim and pursue compensation. In New York, injured individuals have three years from the date that their injuries occurred to file a claim. It’s important to act quickly on your case so you don’t miss your deadline and thus miss your opportunity to recover damages. Our attorneys offer efficient service and know what documents and evidence we need to succeed in your claim.
Damages We Can Recover
In addition to helping you file your claim quickly, we can also secure the compensation you need from negligent parties. Many insurance companies attempt to evade liability or undermine the value of claims to avoid having to lose money. Our attorneys recognize all the usual tactics companies employ and work tirelessly to strengthen our clients’ claims to ensure they’re awarded what they deserve.
Damages we’ve recovered include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
Some injuries cost tens of thousands of dollars in medical treatment and more. We fight for our clients to make sure they don’t have to worry about paying a cent after their case is over.
