Bronx Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injuries can happen anywhere to people from all walks of life. The Bronx is no exception to this unfortunate fact. When accidents occur through negligence or wrongdoing, they can end up in serious physical injuries, emotional distress, recurring medical expenses, and other losses. In these cases, you have the right to seek compensation from those responsible for your accident. However, seeking compensation from defending parties and their well-funded and aggressive insurers can be a complicated matter.

Our capable attorneys share 75+ years of combined experience building cases, negotiating for fair and just settlements, and fighting in civil courts at trial when it best serves our clients’ interests. We know how to investigate accidents, how to analyze evidence, how to prepare claims for negotiation, and how to put our honed trial skills to work. When you come to us, you can rely on close and personalized client-attorney interaction in which you become a member of our legal family.
Personal Injury Cases in the Bronx
Personal injury claims and lawsuits are based on the underlying cause of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of another party or parties. These parties owed you a duty of care which they violated or abused which put you in harm’s way. As a result, their actions or inactions led to your injuries.
Causes of personal injuries can thus occur in many different scenarios, such as:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Taxi accidents
- Rideshare accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Construction accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Dog bite/attacks
- Unsafe or dangerous premises
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Accidents caused by defective products
- Negligent security leading to criminal attacks
- Medical errors or negligence
Even though the injuries you suffered may not have been intentional, you should not have to bear the consequences because of others’ errors, inattention, or negligence. Those consequences can be enormous in terms of personal suffering, economic losses, and more.
Personal injuries can result in whiplash, sprains, torn ligaments, broken bones, severe burns, organ and nerve damage, and catastrophic injuries such as amputations, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord damage. The medical expenses alone for these injuries can soar into the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Add to this pain and suffering, lost income, and emotional trauma, all of which can lead to financial ruin and a decreased quality of life. Victims forced to endure these effects deserve justice through rightful compensation for their losses and damages.

Why You Need Legal Representation in Bronx Injury Cases
In most personal injury cases, you will be dealing with the at-fault party’s insurance company. It is a well-known fact that insurance companies do everything possible to deny, reduce, or delay claim payouts. Their adjusters and representatives work for them, not you, and their job is to protect their employer’s profitability.
This is often done by pressuring you into quick settlements that are much less than the true value of your claim. As a layperson, you may have little knowledge in valuing claims or even proving fault. Once you have settled and signed away any further rights, you cannot come back to recover the full extent of what you may have lost.
This can all be avoided by hiring a personal injury firm that handles such situations day in and day out. Our firm will do everything possible to help you obtain optimum results.
These actions can include:
- Handle all communications with the defendant and involved insurance companies
- Consult with third-party field experts, including accident reconstruction specialists and medical professionals, whose insight and information can support your case
- Compile information about any witnesses to the accident itself and record their testimony of events
- Offer legal advice
- Make you aware of all your options
- Gather and analyze all evidence pertaining to your case, such as photos and videos of the accident
- Visit the site of the accident to look for remaining evidence or to examine the traffic pattern or environment where you were injured
We can help you in other ways as well, depending on the specifics of your case. When you work with us, we design a plan of action that is intended to bring about a fair resolution.
