Personal Injury Lawyer in Queens, NY
From Flushing to Jamaica, personal injuries are very common in Queens, throughout New York City, and within the Empire State overall.
For example, official New York Department of Health statistics indicate that there are over 120,000 hospitalizations every year. Furthermore, thousands of injuries and poisonings are responsible for most emergency department visits each year in New York City alone and are among the top 10 leading causes of hospitalization in the city.
Some injuries are more common than others. Injuries sustained in Queens car accidents, for example, are more common than other injuries, given the prevalence of auto accidents. There are approximately 600 hospitalizations and 8,000 emergency department visits each year due to auto accidents alone.
As these statistics indicate, every Queens resident must be prepared for personal injuries, pedestrian accidents, and more. No matter how well you drive or how carefully you traverse the Big Apple, you could become the victim of motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents, construction site accidents, and other types of personal injury cases.
Causes of Personal Injuries
Many personal injuries are due to purely accidental factors, like environmental hazards or bad weather. However, some personal injuries are caused directly due to the negligence of another party.
Negligence means that another party had a duty to your safety — either implied or stated — and then ignored that duty. For example, all New York drivers have a duty to drive safely and soberly. That way, they don’t become hazards to themselves or other drivers.
However, people or organizations can act negligently, leading to serious injuries for accident victims. Common causes of Queens personal injuries include but are not limited to:
- Unsafe work sites for construction workers, such as construction sites that lack proper safety gear for all employees
- Distracted or intoxicated driving, which can lead to auto accidents
- Medical malpractice incidents in which a medical practitioner injures a patient through negligence (i.e., prescribing the wrong dose of medication, performing a medical procedure while intoxicated, etc.)
In many accidents, negligence is cause for a lawsuit. You can learn more about the potential compensation for a personal injury lawsuit by contacting Schwartzapfel Lawyers today at 1-800-966-4999.
Common Personal Injuries and Medical Expenses
- Broken bones and fractures
- Sprains, strains, and ligament tears
- External lacerations and/or internal bleeding
- Herniations (e.g. vertebrae, brain, groin)
- Dislocations (e.g. shoulders, hips, legs)
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal damage, including paralysis
These injuries may lead to exorbitant medical costs, sometimes hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. Surgeries, X-rays, and physical therapy can weigh down anyone’s wallet. However, a successful personal injury lawsuit may allow you to recover compensation to pay for these costs, lost wages, emotional distress, and more.

Can You Sue Someone for Personal Injuries?
Sometimes you can sue others for personal injury claims, but the details depend on the circumstances of your accident. For example, New York is a no-fault state for car accidents, whether you’re in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, or even upstate. That means New York law states that injury victims can only sue an at-fault driver if your injuries are sufficiently severe or debilitating or if your property damage is extensive.
However, many other accidents, such as workplace accidents or slip and fall accidents, are potential incidents to sue a negligent party. Your legal team can tell you whether the at-fault party can be sued for damages.
Benefits of Hiring Personal Injury Attorneys
Personal injury law firms can provide many major benefits to an upcoming lawsuit, insurance negotiation, or arbitration case.
Fast Resolution to Most Injury Cases
In many personal injury cases, the threat of a lawsuit with a knowledgeable legal team behind you is enough to get an insurance company to capitulate. If the at-fault party doesn’t want to pay what you need for legal damages, we can negotiate on your behalf and get them to agree to a fair settlement quickly.
A fast resolution is almost always better than a lengthy, potentially costly lawsuit. When you hire the law office of Schwartzapfel Lawyers, you don’t have to negotiate with insurance companies, at-fault parties, or anyone else. Instead, you can focus on recovering from your injuries while we do the heavy lifting to secure you the compensation you are entitled to.
Legal Counsel Throughout Your Case
Professional personal injury attorneys can also provide sound legal counsel for the duration of your case. We can provide legal advice and services such as:
- Informing you as to whether a lawsuit is a viable path forward
- Helping you determine the maximum compensation you may recover for your injuries
- Filing all necessary lawsuit paperwork correctly and on time
- And more!
Our extensive knowledge can be used for your benefit when you contact us today at 1-800-966-4999. But you shouldn’t wait, as your window to file a claim may soon close forever. Instead, act now and contact Schwartzapfel Lawyers today!
Evidence Gathering and Presentation at Court
Personal injury lawyers can gather vital evidence and present it compellingly in court, should your case go to trial. We can gather evidence, including security camera or traffic camera footage, eyewitness accounts, and more, to ensure that the at-fault party is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Moreover, should you need to take the stand, we will also coach you so that you know what to say to strengthen your case.
