Founded in 1989, the Lipsig Law Firm brings more than 80 years of combined experience to each and every personal injury case. Our skilled team has won more than $500 million for our clients, providing personalized service and compassionate counsel.
Our founder, Attorney Harry H. Lipsig, was well-known throughout New York City and the five boroughs. New York Magazine described him as “the toughest, most successful personal injury specialist in the country.” Attorney Lipsig secured hundreds of millions of dollars for clients during his prolific legal career, with a commitment to advocating for accident victims and obtaining fair compensation for their injuries. That legacy is the guiding principle for the Lipsig Law Firm’s work today.
Accidents happen and when they do, the injuries and long-term distress they cause to victims and families can be devastating. Our injury attorneys have seen the devastation accidents due to someone else’s negligence can cause and it is our commitment to justice and obtaining world-class case results that is the foundation of our law firm.
According to New York City Comptroller’s Annual Claims Report, the Bronx had the greatest number of personal injury claims of all five boroughs last year. The Bronx is the third most densely populated county in the United States, with almost 1.4 million residents. With major bridges, heavily traveled roadways, and the number of passengers riding the New York City Subway system, accidents are a daily occurrence in this busy New York City borough. Road repair and resurfacing, bridge maintenance work, and a number of ongoing building projects contribute to a variety of construction accidents in the Bronx. Construction accidents that occur because someone else was negligent fall under the domain of personal injury law.
When it comes to results, we deliver. Some of our many verdicts and settlements in The Bronx alone include:
Personal injury law was designed to protect individuals that have been injured because someone else behaved irresponsibly. Negligence is at the heart of a personal injury claim and it must be proven that another person’s reckless actions caused the accident that resulted in injury. While many accident victims have no doubt that someone else is to blame for their injuries, holding another person legally responsible is not an easy task. In most cases, the negligent party will argue that you share some – if not all – of the responsibility for the accident. At the Lipsig Law Firm, our experienced personal injury team anticipates and prepares for this type of response, skillfully and strategically presenting your case with a track record of success in recovering fair compensation for your injuries.
At the Lipsig Law Firm in the Bronx, our attorneys represent clients who have suffered injury due to another person’s negligence. We provide comprehensive legal services for a wide range of accidents including – but not limited to – the following:
If you or a loved one has been in an accident that was caused -- in part or in full -- by another person’s negligent behavior, you have the foundation for a personal injury claim.

In personal injury cases, the injured victim files a claim for compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are designed to compensate the victim for their losses and to restore the victim to the position they were in before the accident occurred. Compensatory damages may include medical bills, lost wages, lost vacation time or earned sick time, pain, and suffering. The value of some losses are measureable, such as medical bills; for other losses, such as pain and suffering, the value must be estimated.
The statute of limitations is the legal timeframe for filing lawsuits and other civil actions. In New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years from the date the injury occurred. It is important to heed this deadline; your claim must be filed in court before the three-year deadline otherwise your case will not be heard and you will have lost the opportunity to recover any compensation for your injuries.
If you have suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence, the first thing to do is to understand your rights under the law. It is not uncommon in the aftermath of an accident for an insurance company to reach out to the injured victim directly to ask questions regarding your injuries, discuss your case, or offer a settlement. Do not participate in these conversations. While an offer of monetary compensation may be tempting, keep in mind that insurance companies act in their best interests – not yours – and any settlement they initially offer is often not the compensation you deserve. Instead, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your case and explore your options.
Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Get just compensation for your injuries. The dedicated personal injury team at the Lipsig Law Firm in the Bronx works tirelessly on your behalf to recover the compensatory damages required for you to recover and get your life back on track.
