How Can a Bronx Personal Injury Lawyer at Our Firm Help You?
The bills and challenges may be piling up fast, and you may wonder what next steps to take. When you hire Shulman & Hill, our team knows exactly what to do. Our personal injury lawyers can step in and handle your case from start to finish.
Investigate Your Case and Gather Evidence
A personal injury attorney from our firm can build a strong case for compensation on your behalf. In doing so, they will investigate the cause of your accident and resulting injuries and gather supporting evidence that shows why you may be entitled to compensation.
The lawyers at Shulman & Hill know where to go to seek compelling evidence. We can request documents and draw upon sources such as police reports, surveillance camera footage, and eyewitness statements.
Identify a Fair Amount of Compensation
When victims begin the legal process, they may not know how much compensation they’re entitled to recover. We know how to distinguish between a lowball offer and a fair one.
Work With the Insurance Company for You
Having a personal injury law firm on your side can also be immensely helpful during negotiations with the insurance company. Unfortunately, some insurance companies may offer you a low settlement or, in worst-case scenarios, nothing at all. A personal injury attorney at our firm can fight for your interests to recover the maximum amount of compensation you may be entitled to obtain.
File a Lawsuit
Our team may also file a lawsuit to protect your right to seek compensation at trial. If necessary, we will take your case before a jury and make your case for damages. While many cases settle out of court, we will not hesitate to go to trial to pursue the compensation you deserve.
Guide You Through Every Step of the Process
Some people may avoid filing a lawsuit altogether after an injury because they are afraid of how long and difficult the process can be. We understand that. That is why the personal injury lawyers at Shulman & Hill will take the time to carefully explain the path ahead and answer any questions you may have throughout the duration of your case.

Why Should You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
An injury not only presents physical complications and challenges while you recover, but it may also present financial consequences. Serious injuries may prevent you from working while at the same time requiring unexpected treatment, which may be expensive. If another party’s carelessness were the reason why you got hurt, you should not have to absorb these costs on your own.
A successful personal injury lawsuit can help recover compensation for the following losses (past and future) related to your injury:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of earning potential
Our attorneys know how to calculate what you deserve for these losses.
Determining Your Past and Future Medical Costs
The attorneys at Shulman & Hill understand that medical costs go beyond what you’ve already paid for. You could require future and ongoing care for months or even years to come. Our team will work with your doctors and use your prognosis to determine how much you deserve for past, present, and expected care costs, such as:
- Emergency room treatment
- Ambulance services
- Diagnostic testing
- Visits to a doctor
- Medical devices
- Physical therapy and rehab
Career Losses Includes More Than Missed Paychecks
When you face an injury, your career could suffer in several ways. We will work to ensure you receive fair compensation for your:
- Missed earnings, such as your normal paychecks, gig work, tips, or other income
- Future inability to earn income if you cannot work at your pre-injury levels over the long term
- Missed opportunities for career advancement and promotions
How We Factor in Your Pain and Suffering
Any injury victim may face challenges with everyday living, such as the intense pain that can come with serious injuries, surgeries, and rehabilitation. You deserve fair compensation for your past, present, and future pain and suffering. We will speak with you and get statements from your doctor to understand how your injuries affected your life. If needed, we can also seek expert witness testimony.
Does Your Bronx Accident Qualify for a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Personal injury lawsuits cover multiple types of accidents and injuries. Here are some of the most common types of personal injury lawsuits:
According to the CDC, there are three million injuries caused by car accidents each year. If you were a passenger or driver and were injured in a crash that was caused by the recklessness of another party—typically the at-fault driver—you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Recklessness in a motorcycle, truck, or car accident may include aggressive driving, speeding, failure to obey traffic signals, distracted driving, and other illegal acts. A Shulman & Hill in the Bronx, we have lawyers that specialize in car, motorcycle, and truck accidents.
Many Bronx residents bike or walk to get around their neighborhoods. When cyclists share the roads with motor vehicles and pedestrians cross the street, they may be at risk of being struck by a car, truck, or motorcycle.
In 2020 alone, the NYPD reported that there were 765 bike accidents in the Bronx involving motor vehicles that resulted in injuries, eight of which were fatal. In the Bronx that same year, there were 1,263 pedestrian accidents that resulted in injuries, 21 of which were fatal.
The subway is one of the most popular modes of transportation throughout the Bronx. Train collisions, fires, and other accidents can result in serious injuries. If you or a loved one were hurt in a Bronx train accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.
A fall can cause serious injuries, from broken bones and back injuries to concussions and more. Property owners and other relevant parties are required to maintain safe premises for guests. This includes mopping wet floors, shoveling snow and removing ice during the winter, installing signage that warns visitors of potential slip and fall hazards, and more.
If you fell in a store, restaurant, or similar venue in the Bronx and the property owners and/or managers did not address the hazard that caused your accident, you may qualify to file a premises liability lawsuit.
While most injured workers qualify for workers’ compensation benefits after a workplace injury, sometimes workers may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit as well. Construction workers who were hurt in an accident that was caused by a party other than their employers—such as a contractor or property owner—or if they were injured due to a statutory violation at the worksite for which the property owner or general contractor may be liable, may qualify to file a lawsuit.
At Shulman & Hill, we have lawyers who can help with both a workers’ compensation claim as well as a workplace injury lawsuit, which may result in additional compensation for pain and suffering and similar losses not covered by workers’ compensation.
If you were bitten by a dog in the Bronx or attacked by a similar animal, you may qualify for compensation from the dog’s owner or the party harboring the dog.
Frequently Asked Questions in a Personal Injury Case
Being involved in a personal injury case leaves victims with many questions. Our Bronx attorneys want to make sure you get answers.
How Much Compensation Could I Receive?
Every situation is different. Our team will investigate your case’s facts and explain how much you could recover once we understand your situation.
However, injury victims can get compensation based on the following factors:
- The seriousness of their injuries
- The cost of your past, present, and future medical care
- The extent of your pain and suffering
- Wages you lost as a result of the accident
What If I Get Injured at Work?
Work injuries can be complex. As explained above regarding construction accident injuries, you could file a workers’ compensation claim and seek benefits for your medical costs and a portion of your lost wages.
Most workers should have access to workers’ compensation benefits in New York, depending on your industry. However, if another party’s carelessness led to your injury, you could hold them responsible through a third-party lawsuit and seek additional types of compensation.
