Establishing liability in a personal injury case

A successful personal injury lawsuit hinges on proving negligence – whether a doctor failed to diagnose a condition, a property owner was remiss in keeping his grounds safe, or a reckless driver speeds excessively and causes an accident. If you think you have the basis for taking legal action and want to find out if you are eligible for compensation, the first step is contacting a reputable law firm that specializes in this type of litigation. We can help you determine responsibility and, if another party was to blame, will use the industry’s leading experts and witnesses to build a strong case that will help us obtain just compensation on your behalf.

Some examples of recent personal injury verdicts in the NY area:

  • $26 million award for the family of a Brooklyn boy who suffered brain damage due to hospital negligence
  • $130 million jury verdict for a Suffolk County girl who now has cerebral palsy due to medical mistakes during her delivery
