Manhattan Personal Injury Lawyers

Our New York City law office is located on the East side of midtown Manhattan and is walking distance to Grand Central Station. This central location allows our accident attorneys to effectively meet with clients from Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. Our offices are walking distance to the 4, 5, and 6, subway lines and the shuttle train from the Port Authority, which allows us to service clients and meet at our convenient midtown office. Over the years, our Manhattan personal injury lawyers have handed virtually every type of accident case there is from the run of the mill car accident to million dollar construction accident and wrongful death cases.

Our combined four decades of legal experience allow us to give our clients the high end talent of a large firm, with the personal attention of a small law firm. Among the most common cases our attorneys handle are construction accidents where general contractors and property owners fail to make sure that the workers have proper and safe equipment and tools. In Manhattan, our attorneys have also handled countless car and truck accidents, especially cases where pedestrians are hit while crossing the street or bicyclists are hit by cars whose drivers fail to share the road. We have also successfully handled many bus accidents, including situations where buses hit other vehicles and where buses hit pedestrians. Our Manhattan personal injury attorneys also have successfully handled police and firefighter line of duty cases where a police officer or firefighter is injured because a law or regulation was not followed, such as a building code or other law.

We have also handled a number of cases against the City of New York including cases where people step in pot holes, or fall on City property and even injuries that occur in the City jails from guards assaulting inmates or inmate on inmate attacks. Another common type of accident which our Manhattan personal injury lawyers have significant experience with is playground accidents, where a child is injured either because the equipment is not age appropriate or where the equipment is not properly constructed or maintained, including where the playground’s surfacing is inadequate. In any case against the City of New York, including accidents on New York City playgrounds or against the New York City Housing Authority, a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days of the accident. However, police misconduct cases, such as false arrest, excessive force and malicious prosecution can be brought under Federal Civil rights laws, which do not have a notice of claim requirement.

For the City of New York all notice of claim forms must be filed at 100 Church Street at the Corporation Counsel’s office, which is only a short subway ride from our Manhattan location. This allows us to make sure that our claims are timely filed. Our office is also a short subway ride from the Manhattan Supreme Court and the Brooklyn Supreme Court, where our attorneys regularly appear.

Our consultations are always free and there is never a fee unless you win your case.
