Strengthening Your Own Personal Injury Case


How can I help my own case?

Hiring a skilled New York City personal injury attorney as soon as possible after being injured due to someone else’s actions is the most important step in positively impacting the outcome of a personal injury lawsuit for monetary damages.

The reality is that the sooner a lawyer is on your side the sooner they can start building your case, starting with staying on top of the investigation, identifying and/or interviewing witnesses, safeguarding evidence, taking photos, and most importantly speaking on your behalf to authorities and insurance companies-- so you can focus on healing and don’t unwittingly say something that can hurt your claim.

Personal injury lawsuits arise from many different situations such as automobile accidents and slip and fall accidents. Sometimes your injuries may be so serious that you are not conscious or are too distracted in the moment to take note of the surroundings and circumstances of the incident that led to your injuries. However, keeping evidence is important if you’re able to do so.

Support Dog Bite Cases on Airlines


Are airlines responsible when a support dog bites a passenger?

New York City personal injury attorneys may have noticed an uptick in lawsuits involving so-called “emotional support” animals in recent years due to what appears to be increasing cases of untrained animals being passed off as formally-trained and certified ones-- then biting or otherwise injuring people.

Historically, service animals like guide dogs for the blind and other service companions have gone through a lengthy, rigorous training program by professional agencies in order to properly and safely help their designated disabled person through the various situations a person may encounter in everyday life – – including air travel.

Unfortunately, the headlines are now full of people who have been injured by pets of those who claim their animals are emotional support dogs when they may not have had the proper – – or any – – formal training. This can obviously put the public at risk for

Who is responsible for a worker’s injuries in a house renovation accident?


What happens when you mix construction workers, a neat-freak house staff, a tall ladder, and a multibillionaire’s East Hampton home? You might get a New York personal injury lawsuit, especially if a shoeless worker fell from the ladder and was seriously injured. 

Reportedly, the project in the mansion involved installing automatic curtains in a private home gymnasium. The injured electrician alleges that house staff directed the workers-- verbally and through signage in English and Spanish--to remove their shoes and wear slippery blue booties on their feet so as not to dirty or damage the expensive wood floors.
