The Clock Is Ticking
City buses are operated by public authorities — in this case, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Department of Public Works and Transportation. You must file a notice of claim within 90 days of the bus accident. Failure to meet this deadline means that you may be barred from filing a lawsuit for your injuries.
If you were hit by a car, you have rights that you probably didn't know about. The negligent driver's insurance company has to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and compensate you for pain and suffering. There is a 30-day deadline to apply for these benefits.
Our lawyers can help you meet filing deadlines that are in place and help you weigh your legal options against the negligent driver.
New York law is protective of bicycle riders. It's incumbent on drivers to exercise reasonable care to avoid hitting bicyclists. If you were hit by a car while riding a bicycle, our attorneys will help you get the compensation you deserve.
Our attorneys can also assist with accidents that occur in designated bike lanes, whether caused by moving vehicles in the bike lane or parked vehicles obstructing designated bike lanes.
Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents
If you were injured because you slipped and fell on snow or ice, don't assume that it was your fault. New York City Administrative Code and the City of White Plains code requires residential and commercial landowners to clear sidewalks of snow and ice within a short period after the snow or rain ceases. They are also responsible for repairing and maintaining broken sidewalks in front of their property. Sadly, property owners often ignore these regulations, contributing to injuries.
You may have a premises liability lawsuit if you slipped, tripped, or fell because of the negligence of a property owner.
Statute of Limitations
In the state of New York, a personal injury claim must be filed within three years of the date of an accident. A personal injury case cannot be pursued once the statute of limitations has passed, so it's important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.

"Michael Joseph is not only a knowledgable attorney, but a tactful one as well. His extensive legal knowledge allows him the opportunity to inform all potential clients of the road ahead as well as any potential hazards he may encounter along the way. In my time with him he was kind and easy to speak to, but was very shrewd in dealing with the defendants. There are not many attorneys who you can say are kind and have a good morale compass, but Michael Joseph definitely falls into that category. I hope to never need him again but if I ever do, it will be comforting to know that he will be in my corner to guide me through the formalities and tension of extended legal processes. These words are not enough, but thanks again Michael, you helped me through one of the hardest times in my life." Eric Kleemann
Police Line of Duty Accidents
If you were a police officer and were injured on the job, New York law allows you to file a lawsuit if your injury was caused while an assailant was committing a crime. Whether you were in a car accident or got hurt breaking up a fight in a bar, it's worth speaking with a personal injury lawyer about civil litigation.
Our personal injury lawyers have represented members of New York's Finest who were injured while in the line of duty. The legal damages recovered in a lawsuit can help cover medical bills as well as the lingering effects of a serious injury.
Bouncer and Bar Assaults
New York City's nightlife can have a dangerous side. If you suffered injuries in a bar or nightclub because you were assaulted by a bouncer, you can file a lawsuit to cover injuries you sustained during the altercation. Sometimes in the process of breaking up a fight, innocent bystanders at the club get injured, in which case it's crucial that you consult with a personal injury attorney.
Our personal injury lawyers can review evidence of the altercation that led to injuries and ensure the bouncer and the establishment in question are held accountable for the harm you sustained.
If you, your spouse, or your child were injured because of the negligent actions of a surgeon, doctor, nurse, or pharmacist, you can hold that medical professional legally accountable. Medical malpractice lawsuits help patients seek damages for their injuries and additional healthcare expenses.
