Negligence and Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law protects those who have sustained injury in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. Proving legal negligence is at the core of every personal injury lawsuit. But demonstrating that another person’s reckless, irresponsible behavior caused or contributed to your accident is not always easy or straightforward. The opposing party will refute your claim and, in many cases, argue that you are at least somewhat responsible for the accident. Our Queens personal injury attorneys are familiar with this tactic, so we thoroughly and strategically prepare for this, successfully securing favorable outcomes for our clients.

Personal injury accidents

In the eyes of the law, the type of personal injury accident is not important, only that negligent behavior caused physical or mental harm, or contributed to the accident in the first place. Negligent behavior, reckless conduct or lack of action to prevent harm, can be committed by another person, a company or other entity. New York personal injury law covers a broad range of accidents including – but not limited to – any of the following:

If you have been in an accident and your injury was partly or fully caused by another individual, you may have the basis for a personal injury claim.

Our attorneys bring a combined 80 years of proven trial experience to every client's case. Over the course of our careers, we've secured more than $800 million in compensation for people injured due to the negligence of others, achievements recognized by numerous awards and commendations.

Construction accidents in Queens

Construction projects abound in Queens, the largest in area of the five boroughs of New York City. Queens is home to two major NYC area airports -- JFK International and LaGuardia -- Flushing Meadows Park, and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, the busiest crossing of the East River bridges. Between road resurfacing, bridge repair work, and new building construction, scaffolding, cranes, and traffic safety cones are a way of life in the borough of Queens. And, where there is construction work, there are accidents. Our Queens construction accident attorneys advocate for those injured in all types of construction accidents, including:

  • Ladder falls
  • Forklift accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Ceiling and building collapse accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Electrical shock and electrocution
  • Saw and blade accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Window washer falls or accidents
  • Falling objects and debris accidents
  • Struck by Objects or Caught In-Between Objects or Machinery

Timeframe for personal injury lawsuits in New York

Every state has time limits for filing lawsuits and other civil actions, known as the “statute of limitations”. New York’s statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is three years from the date the injury occurred. This is a strict deadline; if you fail to bring a lawsuit before the three-year deadline, the opposing party can file a motion to dismiss the case. If the judge dismisses your case, you have lost your opportunity to recover any compensation for the injuries you sustained.
