Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Manhattan Attorneys Handle

“Personal injury” is a broad term and may include many types of accidents. You may have experienced a car accident, a slip or fall at a grocery store, or been hurt by a doctor in the form of medical malpractice.

Regardless of the cause, your injuries can decrease your overall quality of life and prevent you from working. A Manhattan personal injury could prevent you from living the life you did previously and having the future you worked to achieve.

Personal injuries include—but are not necessarily limited to—the following:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

It is extremely important to be vigilant and cautious when driving. Practicing safe driving is particularly critical in a busy area like Manhattan since high traffic density is linked with a higher-than-average risk of suffering a severe injury in an auto accident.

In a single recent month, there were 1240 motor vehicle accidents in Manhattan. If you are ever injured in a Manhattan vehicle accident as a passenger or driver, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.

New York auto insurance laws are complex, so you want to review your options with knowledgeable car accident attorneys before deciding how to proceed with your case. Our Manhattan personal injury team provides free initial consultations.

Passengers in rideshares like Uber or Lyft, buses, or taxicabs may also qualify for compensation if they suffer injuries in a collision.

Truck Accidents

Our attorneys may represent Manhattan truck accident victims who suffered serious injuries in a collision. Incidents involving tractor-trailer trucks are often serious because of the size and weight of these vehicles. Our traffic accident attorneys understand the special considerations that may exist in these cases and how they could affect your payout.

If you suffered injuries in a truck accident, we can review your options with you today. We provide no-obligation, free consultations for crash victims. We will put our extensive experience to work in recovering any monetary costs you have suffered.

Pedestrian Accidents and Bike Accidents

Hundreds of pedestrians and cyclists are injured in motor vehicle collisions every month in Manhattan, according to the New York City Police Department.

Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists are common in busy areas like Manhattan and can leave victims with life-long injuries. Sharing roads with vehicle traffic may put cyclists and pedestrians at risk. The careless actions of a negligent driver can have devastating consequences for others.

Those who use other non-motorized modes of transportation could also qualify for compensation if a careless or reckless driver hits them. This could include those on skates, rollerblades, scooters, skateboards, and more.

Manhattan Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability laws, regulations, and standards require property owners and managers to keep customers and visitors on their properties safe. Property owners must take steps to guard against hazardous conditions that may cause accidents by maintaining their properties accordingly.

Potential hazards may include spills on floors or broken steps that cause a slip or trip and fall. If it is difficult or impossible to eliminate a hazard entirely, a property owner must sufficiently warn guests with proper signage. Our lawyers know how to develop a compelling case based on the evidence available after this type of injury.

Premises liability cases may also arise due to insufficient security. If you were injured at a nightclub or similar establishment because ownership failed to take adequate steps to keep violent individuals from entering the premises, you may have a right to compensation. Our experienced attorneys will determine if you have a legitimate claim and we will proceed from there.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Just as property owners have a legal responsibility to prevent accidents, dog owners and owners of other dangerous animals have a responsibility to ensure their pets do not harm others. There are state and local laws regarding pet ownership and how to properly contain your animal to prevent injuries to others. This includes leash laws in New York City.

Many pets can cause serious harm if they attack. Injury victims may be entitled to compensation when pet owners neglect their responsibilities. In some cases, homeowners or other insurance coverage may pay for the injuries suffered by a dog bite victim.

Accidental Death

Manhattan personal injury lawyers also handle wrongful death claims. In worst-case scenarios, someone else’s carelessness or recklessness can lead to a fatal accident. Surviving family members may be able to pursue compensation for a range of losses through a wrongful death lawsuit. If you lost someone as a result of someone else’s actions, we can help determine what happened and may seek compensation accordingly.

How Our Personal Injury Law Firm in Manhattan Can Help

The personal injury lawyers at Shulman & Hill approach each case differently depending on the circumstances. We consider the details of each and every case to determine how to proceed. Consult with the personal injury attorneys at our headquarters location in Manhattan to learn if we can build a stronger case.

We may have the experience and knowledge to help clients find workable solutions in some circumstances when other lawyers find cases too complicated or difficult. We are not afraid to take on a challenging case if we believe we may be able to help the victim get justice. It all starts with a free consultation. You have nothing to lose by letting us assess your options.

The following are some of the ways we can help seek compensation after you or a loved one have been injured as a result of another party’s careless or reckless actions:

Determining Liability

The process of determining liability can be complex. It requires conducting a thorough investigation to accurately identify any and all liable parties that may be responsible for compensating you. In most cases, at-fault parties displayed carelessness or recklessness that caused the incident and your injuries.

A Manhattan personal injury attorney from our team can investigate your case to identify all potentially liable parties. We know the necessary steps to identify, gather, and preserve evidence in all types of Manhattan personal injury cases, including work injuries, construction accident injuries, car crashes, premises liability injuries, medical malpractice, and more.

Filing a Claim

The process of seeking compensation involves filing an insurance claim. These are complex tasks to complete if you do not have prior experience doing so or a legal background. Contacting the personal injury professionals at Shulman & Hill can be beneficial. We can assess the full extent of your losses, as well as assist in collecting all necessary paperwork and relevant evidence.

We can handle cases from start to finish, navigating all aspects of the legal process for our clients. If we work together, you can trust us with your claim while you focus on your treatment, healing, or returning to your previous activities.

Negotiating for an Appropriate Settlement

The negligent party’s insurer may try to offer a lower settlement than what your claim truly is worth. When partnering with a skilled personal injury lawyer, you do not need to work with insurance companies directly. Our lawyers can manage all communication with the insurance adjuster on the client’s behalf.

Dealing with insurance companies may be time-consuming, stressful, and even put your rights at risk. Our attorneys can handle the claim, and this could include negotiating on your behalf. Our actions could help to secure a fair settlement in your case.

Representing Clients at Trial

As necessary, our attorneys may file lawsuits on behalf of our clients. We approach each case based on its own circumstances and merits. This includes weighing the options for our client, and we may decide if a lawsuit is needed. This could persuade the at-fault party to settle or we could continue to trial. Our attorneys know how to handle either situation and build a strong case for fair compensation on our client’s behalf.

Car Accident Cases Could Work Differently Under New York Law

New York is one of 12 states that recognize no-fault auto insurance laws. The state requires most motorists to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance policies. This changes how victims can approach seeking compensation following many crashes.

In New York, your insurer is typically responsible for providing medical benefits and reimbursement of loss of income after a car accident, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.

However, when the serious injuries were caused by another’s carelessness, you may be entitled to additional compensation for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment. You may also be entitled to additional economic losses that were not covered by your own insurance. This will require showing you suffered serious injuries.

Our lawyers review these cases and can explain your options based on your injuries and accident details. Connect with our team to ask if we can help you pursue a fault-based case based on your accident.

Why Choose Shulman & Hill?

Shulman & Hill is New York’s premier personal injury law firm. We have worked hard to build a reputation as the firm that can handle a case no matter the difficulty or complexity. We can handle all types of personal injury claims and lawsuits. We sometimes represent clients that other lawyers previously turned down.

Every case is unique. We can consider the facts of the case, our handling of similar cases, our knowledge of the law, and other factors to put a plan in place for how we can help each client. Every case is personal to our attorneys and team. We want to ensure every client gets justice and recovers as fully as possible physically, emotionally, and financially.

We have won more than $300 million in settlements and awards for our clients. While this does not have any bearing on the possible outcome of future cases, it does show we can develop strong claims and win cases for our clients. This includes a wide range of injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fractures
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries
  • Amputation and loss of use
  • Other serious and catastrophic injuries

What if My Injuries Occurred at Work?

Our attorneys may represent injured workers in both workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. We have both departments and can work together on these cases as needed.

Injured workers may need to fight for both workers’ compensation benefits from their employer and compensation from a third party responsible for their accidents and injuries. While workers in Manhattan typically cannot sue their employers directly beyond for Workers’ Compensation coverage, they may have a case against a property owner or other party whose carelessness caused their injury.

Our attorneys may pursue both angles for some clients. This is a significant advantage of choosing our team to represent you. You will not need to hire two firms to handle your cases and hope they will share evidence and information.
