We represent Bronx and New York City personal injury accident victims in all of the following categories of accident lawsuits, in addition to just about any other type of situation in which a person is physically or emotionally harmed due to the negligence of another:

Car Accidents

Proving negligence in a car accident lawsuit generally requires proof that a driver’s negligence in the use and operation of their vehicle caused an accident. While this may seem simple – virtually everyone has experience driving, or at least riding, in a car on the road – proving the elements of a car crash lawsuit in a way that maximizes the compensation to which you are entitled if you are injured is not simple at all. Our Bronx no-fault insurance lawyers can also assist you in obtaining the proper no-fault insurance benefits to which you may be entitled if you are injured in a Bronx car accident. There is no substitute for experience, and our team of attorneys has what it takes to prove your car accident lawsuit to give you and your family the best possible chance of a full recovery after a car accident involving serious injuries and disability.

Truck Accidents

Truck accident injuries are generally extremely severe due to the sheer mass of trucks, and their relative size and weight when compared to cars, motorcycles, and especially pedestrians. Truck accident lawsuits are often more complicated than typical car accident cases, as there are special rules and insurance issues that must be addressed. Our team of Bronx truck accident lawyers is intimately familiar with all of the intricacies of truck accident lawsuits, and will teach you exactly what your rights are if you are injured in a Bronx truck crash. If you have been injured in a Bronx truck accident, you need top personal injury attorneys to represent you if you want to stand a chance of obtaining full compensation in court.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are subject to the very same rights and privileges as any other motor vehicle on the road in the Bronx and throughout New York City. The very same rules of the road that apply to any other driver apply to motorcyclists. When motorcycle accidents do occur, the injuries suffered by the motorcyclist are almost always extremely severe. Contact our Bronx motorcycle accident lawyers today to learn whether you may be entitled to compensation for all of your pain and suffering, lost wages, lost benefits and medical expenses that the negligence of another driver caused you if you are the victim of a Bronx motorcycle accident.

Construction Accidents

The Jesse Minc Law Group is proud to represent many injured tradesman, both union and non-union, who are injured in Bronx construction accidents. With so much on the line – pain and suffering, lost wages, lost benefits, and medical expenses – selecting the right Bronx construction accident lawyers can make the difference between financial ruin and security for a lifetime if you are injured and disabled from working. The construction accident laws in New York are, generally, favorable to injured workers, and if you are injured on the job you should always consult with experienced construction accident attorneys to learn about what your rights may be. We have been successful – at the trial court level, and throughout the appellate system – in obtaining and keeping recoveries for our injured construction worker clients, and are proudest when we can help them get back on their feet financially after a devastating construction accident injury in the Bronx and New York City.

Premises Liability

All property owners – and, in some cases, tenants of rented property – have a non-delegable duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. If you are injured due to a property owner’s failure to do so, you may be entitled to compensation. Whether you trip and fall, slip and fall, or are otherwise injured because of a defective condition on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages, medical expenses and the pain and suffering that you endure due to your injuries.

Public Transportation Accidents and Government Liability

New York City’s public transportation system is among the largest in the world, carrying millions of people per day around the Bronx and other boroughs. The City of New York – our local government – is as large and complex as the governments of most states around our country. When mass transit accidents – including subway accidents, bus accidents and ferry accidents – occur, the consequences are often devastating to the injured and their families. The government enjoys special legal benefits that private persons and companies who commit negligence do not enjoy. Our Bronx personal injury lawyers have extensive experience with these special rules and will educate you about your rights if you are injured due to governmental negligence or in a public transportation accident.

Medical Malpractice

When we get sick, we place our trust in doctors, hospitals and other medical professionals to make us better. Doctors take the Hippocratic oath, swearing to “do no harm” to their patients, when they receive their medical degrees and licenses to practice medicine. Unfortunately, all too often, physicians depart from good and accepted medical practices, fail to adhere to accepted standards of care, and harm their patients. This is, fundamentally, what medical malpractice is. Our Bronx medical malpractice lawyers will help you understand your rights to compensation if you are injured due to medical malpractice by a doctor, hospital, or any other medical professional anywhere in New York City.

Wrongful Death

If a loved one is killed due to the negligence of another, the family members of the deceased accident victim may be able to obtain compensation in the form of a claim for wrongful death and conscious pain and suffering. Our Bronx wrongful death lawyers will help family members make arrangements to establish an estate of the deceased person in surrogate’s court, and will prosecute their claims for wrongful death and conscious pain and suffering to ensure that family members – especially young children of parents whose lives were unfairly taken due to negligence – have the financial support that they need. Whatever the cause of death, if negligence is involved, our Bronx wrongful death lawyers can be an invaluable resource to a grieving family, and offer to represent the family free of charge unless a recovery is obtained.

Civil Rights

Americans value their civil rights, and have since the founding fathers enshrined them in our Constitution nearly three hundred years ago. Unfortunately, the government – and especially the police and corrections officers – often violates these rights, causing serious physical and emotional injuries to the victims of civil rights violations. When the police unlawfully discriminate or abuse their authority, victims are left feeling helpless and extremely violated. Our Bronx excessive force lawyers and civil rights attorneys have the experience and knowledge necessary to win your excessive force lawsuit, and will fight to the end of the earth to ensure that you receive the justice you deserve. If you have been wrongfully arrested or falsely imprisoned, our wrongful arrest lawyers and police abuse attorneys know how to prepare your case to make sure you are compensated for these abuses of power.

Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are among the most serious and debilitating types of injuries that can occur. Permanent damages can range from loss of memory all the way to being completely comatose and bedridden on a permanent basis. Brain injuries can be caused in a variety of different ways, including through head trauma, stroke or infarction, or a deprivation of oxygen. Our Bronx brain injury lawyers are well-versed in the medical concepts involved in brain injury lawsuits, and will help you and your family obtain the full measure of your damages – including pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and other losses of benefits – if negligence or medical malpractice is the cause of a brain injury anywhere in the Bronx or elsewhere in New York City.

Spinal Cord Injuries

The spine is the superhighway of our central nervous system, and any damage sustained to the spine can cause a lifetime of pain, suffering and hardship. Whether caused by a car accident, a trip-and-fall accident, or at the hands of a negligent surgeon who commits medical malpractice, spinal cord injuries are always serious, and can cause a cascade of problems from which a spine injury victim may never fully recover. We at the Jesse Minc Law Group are proud to count ourselves among the attorneys who have high level experience representing Bronx spine injury victims, and have the deep understanding of spinal injury medicine necessary to impress upon a jury the sheer magnitude of spinal cord injuries when our clients are injured due to the negligence of another person.

Burn Injuries

Burns are among the most painful of all types of injuries. Everybody knows that even small burns are extraordinarily painful, and present serious health risks such as infection if not properly treated on an immediate basis. Our burn injury lawyers will help you hold those responsible accountable if you are injured in a burn injury accident anywhere in the Bronx or elsewhere in New York City. We will assist you in obtaining the proper medical treatment – ranging from routine wound care to skin graft surgery – if you require a referral, and will hire the best medical experts to make sure that the jury in your Bronx personal injury lawsuit understands what you have been through if you suffer a burn injury.

Broken Bones and Fractures

If you have been the victim of a Bronx personal injury accident involving broken bones, our team will help you recover maximum compensation in the form of pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages to which you are entitled. Whether caused by a motor vehicle accident, a construction accident or a trip-and-fall accident, broken bones often result in permanent disabilities. Even after fracture injuries heal, the effects on the functionality of the human body can last a lifetime. Contact our Bronx personal injury lawyers today if you have been injured and suffered a broken bone due to the negligence of another person.

Workers' Compensation

If you or a loved one are hurt on the job – whether the accident is your fault or someone else’s fault – you are almost certainty entitled to claim workers’ compensation benefits from your employer. If you are injured on the job due to the negligence of a third party that is not your employer, you may also be entitled to sue that third party for damages. Even though you do not have to prove fault to claim workers’ compensation benefits due to a Bronx work accident, it is always advisable to retain workers’ compensation lawyers to ensure that you are given all of the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled. Insurance companies have no interest in giving you what you deserve, but with the right advocates in your corner, you can rest assured that nothing will be left on the table.

Social Security Disability

If you or a loved one have become disabled from working for any medical reason – whether due to a physical injury, chronic disease such as cancer, or psychological impairment such as severe depression – you may be entitled to claim Social Security Disability benefits from the United States government. Unlike in the case of a personal injury accident claim, you do not have to prove that a particular event caused your disability, but only that you are permanently disabled from working. Although there are various “disability advocates” who offer assistance to the disabled in obtaining these benefits, many are not attorneys and are not fully equipped to give your application the best possible chance of success. It is always advisable to hire bona fide Social Security Disability lawyers if you are disabled and are seeking these lifetime disability benefits.

When I got hurt after falling on a scaffold on a construction site, I could not work in construction anymore and did not know how I could support my family.

After I was very badly hurt in a construction accident and could not work anymore, I turned to Jesse Minc. I have had a lot of lawyers over the years, but he is the best I ever had.
