New York Personal Injury
Victims of personal injury accidents deserve full compensation for all resulting expenses. They deserve compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability. The lawyers of Finger & Finger help people throughout New York City, White Plains, Rockland, Westchester and Putnam Counties with a wide range of personal injury accidents.
Our consultation is free in all our personal injury cases. We work on a contingency basis, meaning we do not charge our clients an attorney’s fee unless and until a verdict or settlement is reached. Our attorneys have extensive experience in personal injury matters and our practice encompasses the following:
We help the families of individuals injured in car crashes, car accidents, truck collisions, motorcycle wrecks, bus accidents, pedestrian accidents and “knock-downs”, rear end collisions, and other tragedies get the compensation they deserve.
Our attorneys assist construction workers who have suffered on-the-job injuries, from scaffolding, ladders, falling objects, forklifts, and other on the job accidents.
Slip and Falls:
The lawyers of Finger & Finger work on all kinds of premises liability cases, including those involving slip and falls from snow and ice, sidewalk breaks and holes, special use, driveway, crosswalk and other accidents, and assaults resulting from inadequate security.
Property owners have a responsibility to keep avoidable dangers off their property and to not be negligent in the ownership, operation and maintenance of their property. Under many circumstances if a property poses obvious hazards that cause an injury, the owner of the property is liable. These premises liability situations include cases of negligent security resulting in assaults as well as cases involving slip and fall injuries, staircase injuries and inadequate lighting.
We deal with surgical errors, failures to diagnose, failure to diagnose cancer, breast matters, misdiagnosis, lack of informed consent, birth injury, emergency room error, and other medical mistakes.
When doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals make mistakes, the consequences can be deadly. The litigation attorneys at Finger & Finger have over 30 years of experience holding physicians and hospitals responsible and accountable for misdiagnosis of cancer and other tragic mistakes. We accept all medical malpractice and personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning we do not charge an attorney’s fee unless and until our clients receive compensation. Our consultation is free.
Mistakes that result in medical malpractice litigation are varied and include the following:
- Surgical mistakes
- Failure to diagnose
- Misdiagnosis of cancer
- Lack of informed consent
- Mistakes in obstetrics or gynecology, including prenatal complications, and birth injury
- Breast issues
- Emergency room errors
It takes considerable understanding of both medical and legal issues to handle medical malpractice cases. Extensive knowledge is necessary to assemble the requisite evidence in such a case, but medical malpractice cases also require attorneys with the expertise to judge whether a case is valid from the beginning. It is vital to get an experienced attorney in these situations.
People who suffer on-the-job injuries deserve full compensation. We help injured employees get what they are entitled to. Anyone who suffers a serious injury in an accident at work, regardless of fault, is entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. The lawyers of Finger & Finger help people with the complex processes involved in getting Workers’ Compensation benefits.
We help people who have suffered from any type of workplace injuries, including:
- Construction accidents
- Slip and falls
- Falling objects
- Machinery defects, including forklift accidents, etc.
- Occupational diseases, including asbestosis, and exposure, etc.
- Repetitive motion injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.
The Workers’ Compensation system is very complex. Often, employers unintentionally lead employees to the wrong source of information. There are both federal and New York state disability systems, and each has its own specifications. Our Workers’ Compensation lawyers can carefully analyze your individual case and point you in the right direction, representing you at any stage in the proceeding, including classification, schedule or an award and weekly benefits or lump sum settlements.
