We Handle the Entire Case For Injured Workers including New York’s Construction Workers – Both in Workers’ Comp & Third-Party Lawsuits.

Every day, people in Westchester suffer from injuries caused by the negligence of others. What is negligence? Negligence is when a corporation or individual violates the laws and safety rules that provide standards of reasonable care to govern the way people drive, manage a workplace, or maintain property.

Do I need an attorney for my New York personal injury case?

When a corporation or individual violates these standards of care they are needlessly endangering other people. People like you and me: at work, driving on the roadways, and even at home. When a person is injured because of the negligence of another, the negligent party is required to fully and fairly compensate them for the harms and losses caused by their negligence.

Free Consultation (914) 200-4042

If you are suffering from a personal injury, your focus should be on healing. However, that can be difficult if you are out of work due to disability from your injuries and worried about mounting medical bills, or if you are facing pressure to provide a statement or agree to a settlement offer. Turn these worries over to an experienced Westchester personal injury lawyer. Your attorney should handle the legal issues involved in obtaining full and fair compensation to allow you to concentrate on your recovery.


Although each case is unique, there are some common features of personal injury claims. In successful cases, the injured individual can recover money—also referred to as damages—to compensate for both their economic losses and their pain and suffering. Examples of economic damages include:

  • Medical bills, both in the past and for future medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Lost pension and retirement benefits
  • Modifications to the home
  • Caregiver needs
  • Reduced earning potential

In addition to recovering money for economic losses, injured people can also recover money for pain and suffering, including emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. These types of harms are also known as non-economic damages, which a Westchester personal injury lawyer could help to determine in any particular case.


Please note that each case must be evaluated on the specific facts and evaluation of a specific case may vary from “no merit” to a multi-million dollar recovery.

$140 Million

Cerebral Palsy suffered by triplets due to medical malpractice in their prenatal and perinatal care and treatment.

What We Can do to Help You

People and corporations are never allowed to needlessly endanger others. Drivers are not allowed to ignore red lights or stop signs. Stores and other buildings open to the public are not allowed to ignore tripping hazards or slippery conditions such as snow and ice. General contractors and construction site operators are not allowed to provide defective ladders, scaffolds, or other safety equipment to construction workers.


When a corporation or person is negligent, that party is required to compensate the injured person for the damages caused by the negligence. However, that liability may be reduced or

eliminated if the harmed individual was also negligent. If the injured person is partly at fault for causing the accident, then the amount of damages they can collect is reduced in proportion to their comparative amount of fault.

In some cases, there may be more than one party responsible for causing the same injuries. In a car accident, both drivers may be negligent, and the injured passenger could have a claim against both. Also, parties may be vicariously liable for the actions of another. Employers are responsible for the negligence of their employees who are acting in the course of their employment. For example, the corporation that operates a retail store is responsible for the negligence of its employee who failed to clean up a slippery condition on the floor.
