Defending Your Rights After Personal Injury
After an injury, you feel pain and suffering from loss and most likely anger at someone else's lack of care and discouragement from being disrespected by insurance companies or employers. These are just a few of the feelings that our clients have when they seek our help after a personal injury.
Shulman & Hill's reputation is built on our commitment to seek your best interests and a positive case result. After suffering a personal injury, our experienced lawyers are your best defense for your rights.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
After a car crash, you probably are injured, suffering the loss of income and dealing with property damage all at the same time. Whether you were on the clock at work or on your personal time when your accident happened, you deserve compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and recovery.
Have you been a victim of someone's neglect to keep their property safe? You have if you ever tripped and fell because of a parking lot pothole or slipped and fell on a store's unmarked wet floor. Often, accidents that seem minor actually cause major injuries. Our lawyers can answer your questions about initiating a personal injury case.
Personal Injury And Workers' Compensation
At Shulman & Hill, we are seasoned attorneys with extensive experience in both personal injury and workers' compensation. Because of this, we have a unique approach to case strategy that allows us to take the big picture into account.
For example, accidents at a construction site are at the intersection of personal injury and workers' compensation. We can pursue both workers' compensation benefits and a personal injury lawsuit at the same time, coordinating our efforts to seek the most favorable conclusion to both cases.

Taking Action For Premises Liability
Owners and operators of property and facilities open to the public have a duty of care to keep their premises safe and in good repair. If they are negligent in this matter and you get injured because of it, Shulman & Hill lawyers are experienced personal injury law professionals who can aggressively pursue your right to compensation.
Slip And Fall
A wet floor in a store or an icy pathway are just two of the ways a slip and fall can occur. This type of accident can be the cause of broken bones, a head injury or the worsening of a previously stable condition. The trauma of a fall can take a long time to heal. This means that you may need compensation for missed work, medical bills, rehabilitation and your pain and suffering.
Lack Of Security Measures
If the absence, shortcomings or malfunction of security measures are the reason that an assault happens, the owner of the property is liable for damages to the victims and their property. Our attorneys have represented clients from all over New York City who were victims of violence because of poor or nonexistent security.
Property maintenance is an ongoing responsibility for property owners and their managers. If they do not personally maintain their property or hire someone to do it, conditions can deteriorate quickly. This leads to hazards such as escalator malfunction, ice buildup and crumbling steps.
Dog bites can cause a variety of injuries, including disfigurement and skin, muscle and nerve damage. Dog owners have the responsibility to ensure that their pets do not harm others. If a dog bites you or your child, our firm can hold its owner responsible for paying for medical treatment and recovery costs.
