Handling all manner of New York personal injury cases
Our long experience in the field of personal injury equips our firm to manage the full range of accidents and injuries on Long Island and in New York City. Count on Giuffré Law Offices for assistance in any of the following areas:
Auto Accidents – If you suffer a serious injury as defined by New York insurance law, you’re allowed to step outside of New York’s no-fault insurance system and sue the negligent driver for the full extent of your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. We take on negligent drivers and their insurance companies in drunk driving car accidents, distracted driving car accidents, rideshare accidents with Uber or Lyft, hit-and-run car accidents, and all types of car accident collisions, including rollover car accidents and pedestrian accidents. We have the knowledge and ability to deal with any motor vehicle crash, including truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents and scooter accidents.
Dog Bites – New York’s dog bite laws contain a confusing mix of strict liability principles of law. What this means to you is that compensation for your injuries is available, but you need to make sure you have retained a knowledgeable and experienced injury attorney who knows which law applies to the given circumstances of your attack.
Slip/Trip and Fall – Property owners are required to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, and they can and should be held liable for accidents that occur because they didn’t fix a dangerous condition or warn the public in a reasonable amount of time. Premises liability cases are difficult to prove, and property owners use lots of defenses, but we know how to investigate an accident and hold them accountable.
Medical Malpractice – Doctors are held to a high standard, consistent with the high level of trust we give them and their potential to cause great harm if they don’t practice their profession with skill and attention. Medical errors have been recognized as a leading cause of death in America. We hold doctors and hospitals responsible for surgical errors, birth injuries, medication errors, misdiagnosis and other harmful medical mistakes.
Construction Accidents – Property owners, developers and contractors can be held absolutely liable to construction workers for accidents that occur on-site. New York’s scaffold law provides a strong, yet technically intricate, avenue for compensation after a fall or other injury involving heights. From ladder falls and scaffold collapses to forklift and crane accidents, to electrical shock and elevator accidents, you can rely on Giuffré Law Offices to navigate through the complex web of laws, rules and regulations to find the responsible parties and hold them accountable to you.
Defective Products – Manufacturers are strictly liable for injuries to consumers when they put defective products on the market. Our firm takes on the largest product makers and holds them accountable for product defects that harm consumers, including design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn. We have the resources, stamina and dedication to see your products liability case through to its conclusion.
Nursing Home Negligence – The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is difficult enough without having to worry about whether they will get the medical care and attention they need. Sadly, worker turnover, poor staff-to-resident ratios, and lack of adequate training and supervision mean that nursing home residents can be severely neglected and suffer sorely because of it. We’ll fight for justice and compensation for your family members when they are robbed of their dignity and not given the adequate level of care they need and deserve.
Wrongful Death – Separate laws come into play when a loved one has died because of another’s negligence. We can help pursue justice for your family member and obtain much-needed compensation to help you cope with medical bills, funeral expenses, and the loss of a wage earner, household manager or loving spouse, parent or child. Our firm is also prepared to take on the severest cases of catastrophic injury, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, burn injuries, amputations, and others.
