How Can We Help You?
Queens Motor Vehicle Accidents

Auto Accident Attorneys in Queens: Motor vehicle accidents are a major problem, with the number of vehicles on the road and high speeds being factors. Motorcycle riders have an even higher risk for injury because they don’t wear protective gear like helmets or seat belts.

Motor vehicle accidents can be very serious due to their frequency in today’s society as well as people not wearing safety equipment such as motorcycle helmets and seatbelts while driving buses, SUVs, trucks, vans, etc., which is why you should never take it lightly when someone has been involved in an accident

Queens Slip, Trip & Fall

Slip, Trip, and Fall Attorneys in Queens: Falls, either as a result of tripping, slipping or other reasons are some of the most common types of accidents causing injuries. If you find yourself injured on sidewalks (or any municipal property), there may be legal recourse to help with your injury and recovery costs if it was in an area that is owned by the city government.

When living in a big metropolitan area like New York City which has many public areas such as streets and sidewalks built for pedestrians both during workdays and evenings out at night – one should always remain vigilant when walking around these spaces because they can experience slips and falls due to hazardous surfaces more often than not.

Queens Building / Premises

Premise Liability Attorneys in Queens: When we enter a building, store, or other premises on our everyday commute to work and school everything seems like it should be safe. But that is not always the case and if you are injured while in these buildings there may be something wrong with them at fault for your injury.

Injuries often happen because of some kind of defect in the building’s structure but sometimes they can occur from things within as well such as an object sticking out where someone might walk into it without seeing what was protruding behind them due to poor lighting conditions inside the facility itself.

Queens Dog Bites

Dog Bite Attorneys in Queens: If you’re ever bitten by a dog in New York, be sure to contact an attorney who specializes in animal attack cases. In the event that your injuries are severe and require hospitalization, the owner of the dog will have strict liability for medical bills incurred. Furthermore, if you believe there may be grounds for legal action against another person or entity because they were responsible for your injury through negligence (such as not properly securing their pet) then it is best to get advice on what steps need to take place next with someone experienced handling these kinds of situations before proceeding further without representation from a lawyer first-hand familiarized with this area’s unique legislation

Under the dog bite laws in NY, if someone is bitten by a dog and injured, the owner of the dog will be strictly liable to pay for the medical bills to the injured person if that person is not covered by insurance.

Queens Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Attorneys in Queens: Pursuing a wrongful death action is not always easy. It won’t necessarily make you feel better, but it can provide financial security for your family in the years to come and create safer communities by holding people accountable for their actions.

Queens Construction Injuries

Construction Accident Attorneys in Queens: Construction can be dangerous, and falls from heights are no exception. At first glance, many accidents seem to have been caused by the negligence of co-workers or supervisors; however under specific labor laws, building owners and their agents must supply safety equipment in order to prevent workers from injuries caused by fall hazards at elevated workplaces. The absolute liability applies when a worker’s own fault contributes to an accident on these sites as well–even if it is just due carelessness such as climbing up ladders without proper support elsewhere around them

Each year thousands of construction site employees suffer injury because they were using improper or dangerous materials for work purposes while being supervised poorly. Building owners should take steps towards providing adequate tools so that people don’t get hurt on site

Queens Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Queens: For a medical malpractice case to be successful, the injured party must prove that their doctor or hospital departed from good and accepted medical practices in order for them to win. Without this information being affirmed by an expert witness on behalf of the plaintiff, it is nearly impossible if not near-impossible for someone who has been hurt because of substandard care at a facility such as The Hospital Corporation Of America (HCA) ever seeing justice served.

Queens Police Brutality

Police Brutality Attorneys in Queens: Every day, the NYPD puts their lives on the line to enforce laws and protect citizens. But every once in a while an officer will abuse his or her power of authority, which can come as verbal or physical assault. If you have been harmed at any point by one of these officers it may be possible for you to receive monetary compensation – if not from your local police department then through a civil suit against them with help from experienced personal injury lawyers like ours.
