Car Accident Lawyers Rochester NY
Recover with us. In confidence.
In the United States, car accidents involving personal injury occur approximately every 14 seconds and accidents involving death occur every 12 minutes. A large majority of these car accidents are the result of one driver’s negligent, careless or reckless driving. If you are injured as a result of another driver’s failure, you may have a claim. It is imperative that you speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to preserve evidence that may be useful in pursuit of your claim, and to insure that certain time limitations are met, and that all insurance paperwork is properly prepared and submitted.
Representative examples of our work include:
Our client was using home exercise equipment when a cable snapped, striking his face and causing permanent eye injury. His occupation requires extensive reading. We worked with a forensic engineering expert from a local university who determined that the design of the equipment was defective. As a result of our litigation team's investigation and advocacy, this federal court case settled for seven times the original offer made during negotiation.
When products are defective in manufacture, design, or because of inadequate warnings, manufacturers and sellers can be liable for resulting injuries to conscientious users.
Our client slipped down icy interior stairs in an office building. She suffered serious injuries to both of her hips, requiring several surgeries. Although the building's management knew the stairs were dangerous due to the ice, they did not act to make the stairs safe. As a result of our litigation team's investigation and advocacy, the case settled for three times the original offer made by the building management's insurance company.
Building owners and managers have a duty to keep premises safe. When they are made aware of a dangerous condition and do not fix it quickly, they can be liable for resulting injuries.
