Premises Liability

Responsibility for maintaining safety on private and public properties rests with property owners and municipalities, respectively.

Truck Accidents

Being involved in a truck accident in New York is often traumatic, and damages can be amplified because of the size and weight of trucks and other commercial vehicles.

Bicycle Accidents

Riding a bicycle can be dangerous anywhere in the state, but in New York City, with crowded streets, vehicles crossing into protected bicycle lanes, and parked car doors opening into their path.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle and scooter accidents are common in Manhattan and Brooklyn. In fact, they are common throughout New York City and much of the state, but these two boroughs see a high concentration of crashes.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When you are attempting to file a personal injury claim of any kind in New York, your personal injury lawyer wants you to understand that comparative negligence can play a big part in your case. Comparative negligence means that a court will assign a certain percentage of fault to the people who are involved in a case. This means that if you are 20% at fault for the accident, in most circumstances you can expect the compensation you are awarded to be 20% less than it would have been if you were not found at fault.

  • If you want to file a claim then one of the most important aspects of this claim will be ensuring that you file your claim on time. For most personal injury actions, the statute of limitations in New York is typically three years from when the incident occurred. But important to note is that this deadline number can be significantly shorter depending on the circumstances of your case and your personal injury lawyer can ensure you have your evidence gathered and paperwork filed on time. This is especially true for intentional acts, like assaults and battery, medical malpractice cases, and cases against the federal, state, and/or local government and their divisions.

  • In New York, the law states (according to VTL 600) that while at the scene, you must exchange information with the other person and/or report the accident to the police before leaving. Moreover, in some cases there is an additional requirement to report the accident to DMV. Under Section 605 of the NY State Vehicle and Traffic Law, all drivers involved in an accident where: a person is injured or killed, or there is damage to the property of one individual (including yourself) in excess of more than $1,000, must file their own accident report within 10 days from the date of accident or DMV may suspend your driver’s license until your report is received.

  • While you are not legally required to have representation for a slip and fall claim, it is crucial that you see how a lawyer can help you when you want to file a claim after a slip and fall accident. Especially because slip and fall accidents tend to happen without someone else there (unlike a car crash or a truck accident), having a lawyer by your side throughout the process can ensure you are looking in the right places when you need to gather solid evidence for your claim.

  • When you are worried about who is liable for your injuries following a construction site accident, your lawyer will look at many different parties. It is possible that the owner of the property, the general contractor, or others could be held liable if they did not implement appropriate safety protocols at the site. Your lawyer may also investigate whether a third party, like equipment manufacturers, might be responsible. This might be the case if, for example, machinery malfunctioned. Your lawyer will tirelessly go through the evidence to ensure you are holding the right party accountable for your injuries at a construction site. Reach out to your trusted lawyer for help with your claim.
