Bronx Personal Injury Attorneys
888 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY
Experienced Personal Injury Law Firm in the Bronx, New York
The Bronx is quintessential New York. The city and county are each known for their cultural and economic diversities, not to mention a rich history in business, industry, journalism, and arts & entertainment. It’s a name on the tip of every tongue in the world, an inspiration for countless films and songs, and we are so very proud to call it our home.
At Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C., we have many decades of experience as advocates and counselors for unfairly injured and mistreated people throughout all of New York City, including right here in the Bronx.
Most injuries here happen because someone was behaving irresponsibly or failing to follow the rules. The law calls that negligence, and it is the leading cause of accidents and injuries in New York.
Injuries in the Bronx run the gamut, from moderate in scale to absolutely devastating, and someone else’s reckless or irresponsible activity (or lack of action) is usually to blame. When that happens, the victims are legally entitled to economic compensation for the full value of their suffering. That might include:
- Medical costs
- Hospital bills
- Rehabilitation therapy
- Lost income due to time away from work
- Physical pain
- Emotional distress
- Property damage (including vehicle damage)
- Future impairment, losses, or suffering related to your injury
- Loss of love or support (in the case of wrongful death)
- Punitive damages (in extreme cases)
As Bronx personal injury attorneys, we realize that no two accidents are quite alike. Your damages may not look like anyone else’s, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve compensation for them.
New York’s personal injury laws are complicated and often confusing, but they also provide tremendous protection for innocent and hardworking people. As an experienced personal injury law firm in the Bronx, our goal is to leverage our command of those laws for the purpose of maximizing our clients’ financial recoveries.
Nobody works harder or contributes more to New York than the people of the Bronx. We know because we’re among them. We maintain a full-service law office here in the heart of the Bronx, and helping other people in our community is an honor and privilege that we take to heart. We exist to fight for you.
The Bronx: Big on Population, Culture, and Economy
The Bronx is a place filled with good music, great food, incredible history, and nonstop recreation. It’s also filled with people.
With a population of almost 1.5 million, the Bronx borough is bigger than most other cities. It’s the fourth largest (and fourth most populous) of NYC’s boroughs, and yet it ranks third in population density. That fact alone helps to paint a picture of just how bustling the Bronx can be.
It’s also a place of commerce and industry. While the Bronx has seen its share of economic challenges over the years, it’s seen good fortune, too, with prospects on the rise. New businesses are building in the Bronx all the time, and with them come new jobs.
Of course, as Bronx personal injury attorneys, we know that wherever we find both people and progress, there are also accidents and injuries. Some of these are in the workplace. Some happen at home. Many occur on the roadways, where pedestrian and traffic accidents continue to claim far too many lives. Other injuries happen in publicly owned areas, or on sites where you might never have imagined you’d be unfairly hurt.
Sometimes the person who hurts you is a family member, friend, or maybe even somebody else’s pet. They don’t mean to hurt you, of course, but unintentional negligence can still be cause for compensation. That’s what those parties’ insurance policies are for, after all, and our talented legal team can help you make sure that those policies provide the protection that they should whenever applicable.
In other cases, it might be a stranger who’s hurt you. Or maybe an employer, a police officer, a doctor, or someone you trusted with your care. Whatever the case may be, we can help.
