Animal Bites

New York is a mixed law state when it comes to animal bites. This means that there are different standards that must be met for different damages claims. In New York, if a dog bites you or attacks your pet, and that dog was previously deemed a “dangerous” dog, the owner is strictly liable for medical and veterinary expenses. However, to collect other types of damages, the victim must prove that the dog had the propensity for biting and its owner knew about it.

Animal attacks can be traumatic and cause devastating wounds. Don’t go through this alone. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog or other animal, you have the right to compensation. Learn more about dog bites, or contact us today at 1-888-575-6410 for a free consultation.

Workplace Injuries

If you are injured on the job, you have the right to seek benefits under New York’s workers’ compensation law. Work-related injuries harm thousands of New Yorkers each year. We understand how wide reaching these injuries can be, affecting families, friends and co-workers of the victims.

Employers have a duty to maintain a safe and healthy work environment. We can help you in filing your claim and keeping your employer accountable. Learn more about workers’ compensation benefits, or contact us today at 1-888-575-6410 for a free consultation.

Cheerleading Injuries

As cheerleading becomes increasingly popular and competitive, the bar is set higher for young people to perform more dangerous and complex stunts. Because cheerleading is categorized as an “activity” as opposed to a “sport” there is little, if any regulation of the activities associated with cheerleading. With all of these factors taken together, tragedy frequently results. You can learn more about cheerleading injuries.

If your child has been injured as a result of a cheerleading activity, trust the New York personal injury lawyers with a proven track record for success in obtaining millions of dollars for their clients. Contact us today at 1-888-575-6410 for a free consultation.

Police Misconduct

Police officers have sworn an oath to serve and protect the citizens in their jurisdictions. And for the most part, that is what they live, and sometimes die to uphold. However, as we see every day in the news, a small number of corrupt police officers injure and kill citizens with little to no provocation.

Police misconduct can range from false or unlawful arrests and false imprisonment to excessive use of force. These actions can have not only an immediate impact on the victims but also on society as a whole.
