Getting a recovery for a bike accident

There are no laws requiring that a bicyclist carry insurance for either his own protection (medical bills, etc.) or for the protection of the general public.

I can foresee this situation changing in the future in that bicycling has become more prevalent in our society. more >

Recovering from dangerous recreational activities

Dangerous recreational activities are not exempt from liability. That includes paint ball games, bungee jumping, and zip lines.

The injured person has the burden of proof that there was either negligence or a dangerous condition at the facility. However, the mere fact that the activity is dangerous will not defeat the case. more >

Holding a swimming pool/health club responsible for injury

Most swimming pool accidents involve wet and slippery walk surfaces, such as the parameter of the pool and the locker rooms.

A swimming pool operator must maintain its walk surfaces in a reasonable manner to guard against falls. The fall risk is heightened because water is ever present, therefore the pool operator must take extra care. more >

From Our Case Files

$550,000 for Hospital’s Failure to Detect Breast Cancer - Our client, a young lady, had a regular mammogram at her local Brooklyn hospital. The hospital failed to diagnose and report to her the beginnings of breast cancer which could have been treated at an early stage. Unfortunately, the cancer was detected when it had advanced to stage IV and was inoperable. The case was handled with our medical malpractice counsel.

$375,000 Settlement for Foot Fractures from a fall - Our client tripped and fell in his Brooklyn apartment house’s public hallway which was being reconstructed. Wooden planks rather than solid flooring, such as plywood, were used for the temporary flooring. This provided an unstable walkway. The planks moved causing the client to fall and sustain fractures to his foot which required surgery.

$175,000 Settlement for a Fractured Clavicle and Torn Rotator Cuff during Construction - Our client worked for a contractor renovating an apartment in Queens. He sustained a fractured clavicle and a torn rotator cuff requiring surgery when a door fell on him. The door had been taken-off the door frame and was stacked astride a wall. There were significant issues of how the accident happened as well as whether defendant was responsible for the door.

$175,000 Settlement for Sidewalk Fall Resulting in Jaw Fracture - The client tripped and fell on a sidewalk defect in front of an apartment house in Brooklyn. She sustained a fractured jaw.

$125,000 for Torn Meniscus from a Sidewalk Fall - The client tripped and fell due to a broken sidewalk on West 34th Street in Manhattan. She sustained a torn meniscus which did not require surgery. The client had pre-existing injuries.

$125,000 for Fractured Hip in Nursing Home - Our client, a resident of a nursing home in Queens, fractured her hip. We claimed that the nursing home staff knew that she was a fall risk, but it failed to supervise her and left her alone when she was standing while washing.
