Types of Injuries

Construction-Site Accidents

Construction sites are particularly dangerous places to work. Sadly, the laws designed to protect construction site workers from the every day hazards they face has not eliminated the risk. Almost every construction site worker has either been injured or knows someone who has been injured on a construction site.

Defective Product Claims

Products used in the work place, in recreation and at home can become very dangerous if improperly designed or built in the factory. Automobile designs change very rapidly in today's world. Products used in the design of automobiles that are not properly assembled, inspected or tested are often dangerously defective and can cause horrible injuries, even death.

Dog Bites

A bite by a dog is a frightening experience that can cause serious and disfiguring injury. If you or a loved one have been bitten, you may be entitled to bring a claim against the owner of the dog for your losses, including lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.

Scaffold/Ladder Accidents

Almost every construction site worker has either been injured or knows someone who has been injured on a construction site. Although most injured workers will be entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits, those benefits do not cover all their losses (such as pain and suffering, a permanent disability, loss of livelihood, or a loss of earning capacity). In addition, the families of injured workers often face the prospect of lengthy and costly rehabilitation, loss of support and guidance,

Wrongful Death

A "wrongful death" occurs when any person dies as a result of the negligence of another person or business. New York has special rules for bringing wrongful death actions. In general, a representative of the estate must first be appointed by a court and given authority to act on behalf of the estate.

Motor Vehicle Accidents | New York Personal Injury Lawyers

Victims of motor vehicle accidents are often entitled to compensation for property damage, car replacement, repairs, medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In general, insurance carriers and adjusters handle these types of claims differently depending on whether the claimant is represented by counsel. When motor vehicle accident victims negotiate directly with insurance companies, full and fair compensation is very rare. The extent of the injuries is often not fully appreciated for weeks, months and in some cases even years after the accident.

 

At Sugarman Law Firm we strive to achieve the maximum recovery for each motor vehicle accident victim we represent. Even if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident that was entirely the fault of another party, the laws in the State of New York do not automatically give you the right to sue the responsible party for your losses. We understand the laws and cases which apply to this vast and constantly changing area of the law and we make sure each client we represent fully understands what they are entitled to. To fully assess your claim and the extent of your injuries, we thoroughly investigate the accident, take photographs and statements when necessary, and consult with accident reconstruction specialists, traffic engineers, economists, and vocational consultants. We work closely with your doctors to stay up to date on your medical condition, make sure your bills are being paid in a timely fashion, and gain a full understanding of your present condition and the long term problems your injuries may cause.
