Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
From auto accidents and construction site accidents, to premises liability and products liability, our civil torts lawyers have the knowledge, skill and ability to take a case all the way to a jury verdict when necessary to get the best result for our client. The insurance companies know that we successfully litigate personal injury matters in court, and this reputation puts us in a strong position to obtain a settlement that is fair and just.
Every type of case requires knowledge of a different area of New York law. For instance, an automobile accident may implicate New York’s no-fault insurance law and require you to prove that you were “seriously injured” under the law in order to fully recover. Construction accidents require a deep knowledge of New York Labor Law codes and matching regulations in order to pursue a case that can survive the corporate lawyers’ onslaught of technical motions to dismiss. And premises liability cases require the appropriate application of law and relevant building codes.
Regardless of the type of accident you are in or the injury caused, we know the laws and procedures and how to prepare and present a case designed to get the best possible result. In the event that a negligent or wrongful act has caused a death, we bring wrongful death suits and survival actions to help the bereaved family members cope with the sudden and long-term financial loss as well as the painful emotional toll and hardship that the loss of a loved one can cause.
Criminal Defense & Civil Rights Violations
Our experience in the courtroom enables us to provide our clients a strong criminal defense, including fighting for dismissal or reduction of the charges. The offense charged plays a critical role in the outcome of every criminal case. For instance, the difference between a charge of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) can mean the difference between having a traffic infraction and having a criminal record that follows you for years. The same is true for many drug offenses, which can be charged as felonies or misdemeanors depending upon the type and amount of drugs alleged, and whether you are charged with simple possession, intent to distribute, or other narcotics trafficking offenses. From the filing of the criminal charges to plea negotiations to sentence reductions, knowledge of these differences is critical to getting the best outcome possible.
We also vigorously defend the constitutional rights of people accused with a crime and guard vigilantly against such violations as, police brutality, excessive force, and false or warrantless arrests. Not only will we fight to have a case dismissed, but we can represent the victim for money damages in civil court as well. Civil rights violations often reveal a pattern of behavior by the government or police, and civil litigation is often the only means to put a stop to such behavior and make sure changes are made to prevent such abuses from recurring.
