We represent individuals and the families of individuals who have been
seriously injured or killed as a result of the negligent or wrongful conduct of others.
We understand how insurance companies and lawyers on the other side think.
Insurance companies are interested in minimizing their economic exposure when a
serious injury or death has occurred. They hire attorneys whose job it is to
aggressively undermine each aspect of the your claim. We know their tactics. We
take each case on as if it will proceed to trial and we are not afraid to take a case all
the way to jury verdict if that is what is necessary to produce the best possible
result. Our firm represents individuals injured in all types of situations including
industrial, construction, and equipment-related accidents.
experienced attorney. We have years of practice and an impressive track record
representing people who have suffered significant injuries in motor vehicle accidents
(commercial and personal). We work with physicians and other health care providers
to assess and review all the short and long-term medical aspects of your case. Our
detailed understanding of New York's automobile, insurance and liability laws means
we understand the different sources of recovery available to car accident victims and
their families as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to
collect from the parties who caused them harm.
Premises liability is a rather vague term which serves as a catchall for many
types of events including those involving structural design flaws, unsafe conditions,
environmental hazards (including lead poisoning and dog bites), improper traffic
patterns and a wide range of other issues unrelated to security per se. In many cases,
security related premises liability matters involve issues such as physical security
standards and generally accepted security practices. In addition to any existing
standards, crime statistics, event history, community standards, and specific risk
considerations play a part in determining whether an adverse event was foreseeable.
Medical Malpractice and Healthcare Negligence Law
Medical negligence or "malpractice" occurs when a physician or healthcare provider
either fails to do something that should have been done or does something that
should not have been done which results in injury or death. Doctors and other health-
care providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. While a
simple mistake is not enough to constitute negligence, a death or injury caused by the
failure to provide reasonably appropriate or common standards of care or the failure
to diagnose an easily detectable illness may be malpractice. Our firm aggressively
investigates and pursues claims for catastrophic injuries and death arising out of:
o Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
o Birth Trauma
o Failure to Diagnose Cancer and Other Diseases
o Inappropriate or Negligently Performed Surgery
o Inappropriate or Dangerous Treatment Practices
o Pharmaceutical Injuries and Prescription Drug Errors
o Psychiatric/Mental Health Malpractice or Negligence.
Our firm also performs real estate transactional work for a number of private
individuals, builders, mortgage lenders and title companies. We assist with the
purchase and sale of real estate, including negotiating and drafting purchase
agreements and other documents, ensuring good title, and closings. We also assist
our clients with the legal aspects of financing, re-financing, and foreclosures.
Wills, Estates and Probate
Our firm also handles Estate Planning matters which is the area dealing with the
distribution of an individual's property at his or her death, taking into account wills,
taxes, insurance, property, and trusts so as to gain maximum benefit of all laws and,
at the same time, carrying out the person's wishes. Probate is the court proceeding
through which a will is proved to be valid and the estate of a decedent is
administered. The process, generally, includes collecting a decedent's assets,
liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes, and distribution of property to heirs.
