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.

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.

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 train accidents, 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, which apply to any case in which the government is a defendant, including accidents involving mass transit. 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.
