We have been practicing law in NYC and the outlying suburbs, including the Bronx, exclusively in the field of plaintiff's personal injury and medical malpractice since 1993, and our legal team is passionate about pursuing fair and full compensation for every client.

Accidents in the Bronx take place more often than you may expect. According to the City of New York Police Department, there were 2,526 motor vehicle accidents throughout the Bronx in August of 2012 alone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that accidents of any type are the 5th leading cause of death in the United States, and the No.1 cause of death when looking specifically at the 15-24 and 25-44 age groups. Accidents causing unintentional injuries are also the 5th leading cause of death in infants.
At our firm, we take our job extremely seriously. We know how much our work and commitment will impact the life of the injured person. Our team makes it a point to be personally involved in every case, and our compassionate legal team will be engaged in a number of actions to support the claim for compensation. These actions could include an independent investigation or calling upon respected experts to provide information to support the claim we file on behalf of our client. If the insurance company is difficult and continues to challenge the claim or refuses to make a fair settlement offer, we can move forward to civil court to pursue justice.
Above all, we stand firm for our clients, and we urge you to contact us to discuss your case before any more time passes. The earlier that you involve a legal professional the better, as evidence and witnesses can be more difficult to find as time passes. There is a statute of limitations that restricts the time frame in which a claim can be filed in the state, which is another factor that makes time an important issue in injury claims. For example, New York Code §214 states the following about the timeframe of personal injury claims;
Actions to be commenced within three years: for non-payment of money collected on execution; for penalty created by statute; to recover chattel; for injury to property; for personal injury; for malpractice other than medical, dental or podiatric malpractice; to annul a marriage on the ground of fraud.
