bigstock Driver Suffering From Whiplash 47469532 - Bedford-Stuyvesant Personal Injury Lawyer

An accidental injury can occur for any number of reasons, many of which can eventually be traced back to one or more human errors that allowed the accident to occur.  With more than three decades of experience, our Bedford-Stuyvesant accident lawyers have worked on a wide array of personal injury claims and lawsuits.  Some of the most common sources of injury include:

  • Auto Accidents – In a neighborhood as busy as Bedford-Stuyvesant, crashes and collisions are common yet devastating events.  Types of vehicular accidents our law firm handles include car accidents, motorcycle crashes, MTA bus accidents, truck accidents, and accidents involving underinsured drivers or hit and run drivers.  We also handle bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents.
  • Medical Malpractice – Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional makes a preventable error that would not have been made by another doctor.  For example, failures to diagnose cancer have given rise to malpractice lawsuits.
  • Product Liability – Product liability claims arise when a person is injured by a defective product.  This product might be a car, a kitchen appliance, a medical device, a smartphone, a toy, a piece of clothing, a decoration, a food item, or countless other products meant for industrial use or use by consumers.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents – Slip and fall accidents are often caused by property hazards that should have been repaired or removed through prior maintenance work.  They can occur in any setting, including bars, restaurants, gyms, coffeeshops, grocery stores, subway stations, parking lots, apartment buildings, or other locations.  A slip and fall injury is an example of a premises liability claim, in which a property owner is liable for injuries caused by property defects or hazards.
  • Wrongful Death – A wrongful death is a death that was caused by another person’s wrongful act, such as running a red light or making an avoidable error during surgery.

Other types of injury claims we handle include, but are not limited to:

  • Amputation Accidents
  • Birth Injuries
  • Boating Accidents
  • Burn Injuries
  • Explosion Accidents
  • Head and Brain Injuries
  • Neck and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Plane Crashes
  • Workplace Accidents

  • Future Medical Care
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Bills
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Reduced Earning Capacity
  • Scarring and Disfigurement

We will meticulously analyze the sequence of events that led to you or your loved one’s injury in Bedford-Stuyvesant.  Then, we will fight to show that your accident was caused by the negligence of one or more parties, such as an intoxicated driver, a careless doctor, or a product manufacturer that sold a dangerous product, such as an airbag or prescription medication.  With aggressive legal representation to support you, it may be possible for you to get compensated by either negotiating a settlement agreement or filing a lawsuit.

In many but not all instances, it is appropriate to try and negotiate a settlement agreement before bringing the case to trial.  Our attorneys will assess your situation to determine what type of strategy is best suited to the task of resolving your matter favorably.  We are always proactive, never take shortcuts, and make it a priority to remain sensitive to the client while we help them deal with these difficult, emotionally-charged issues.
