Areas of Practice
Harm that occurs in a medical setting, under the care of a licensed physician, or in a hospital, or nursing home, because the standard of care was not met. Unfortunately, it happens more often than you would think.
My office engages top experts in all medical fields to pursue these highly-technical and hard-fought cases on behalf of very sick clients, and the Estates of those who have died because of medical malpractice.
Injured on the job at a construction site? You are protected by New York's Labor laws, which require appropriate safety measures to prevent injuries. Contractors, owners and construction managers are required to ensure that the rules are followed so that injuries don't happen - regardless of your immigration status.
Collisions, car-crashes, whatever you want to call them, they are no fun. With over 17 years' of experience representing individuals injured in auto accidents - driver, passenger, bicyclist and pedestrian - you will be in the right hands.
These cases are about dignity for seniors. Painful pressure sores develop on bed-ridden patients who are neglected, not turned over, and ignored by nursing home staff. There are very specific protocols for the care of these patients, and the pain of bed sores can easily be prevented.
Unfortunately the protocols are not always followed. If this happens and the patient gets hurt, take action so that it doesn't happen to someone else.
Representing the Estate of a deceased person in personal injury and medical malpractice cases, including Estate Administration proceedings in Surrogates Court, NYC, Westchester and Nassau.
New York's Estate Powers and Trusts Law allows a representative of the deceased to pursue justice on their behalf, and on behalf of their next-of-kin.
In New York City, the Administrative Code confers responsibility for sidewalk safety on the adjacent businesses, which are required to be insured for these losses. In certain exceptions, the City as a municipal entity retains responsibility, and often if can be the responsibility of a State or Federal agency. These cases should not be complicated, but they are: they have time-sensitive and very technical requirements, which require adept handling.
My office aggressively pursues compensation for injuries due to negligence on City, State or commercial property.
Believe it or not, some insurance carriers will try to deny or minimize claims - even from their own insureds. Effective legal representation in these situations will level the playing field, and hold insurance companies to their promises.
You are far better off with an attorney representing you than you will ever be, trying to deal with an insurance company on your own.
