Our Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas

The attorneys at David Resnick & Associates have experience advocating for individuals who has sustained injuries in a variety of accidents, including:

  • Slip and fall injuries—If you have suffered a slip, trip or fall accident at Brooklyn Navy Yard, we can determine the liability of the property owner where the accident occurred and seek compensation on your behalf.
  • Car accidents—If you have been injured in a car accident or other motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to demand compensation from the driver who caused the crash to cover your medical bills and other expenses. Liability in a car accident can be complicated, especially if more than one driver is partially at fault. You need an experienced Brooklyn Navy Yard car accident lawyer to help you prove the other driver’s fault and pursue full compensation.
  • Construction accidents—Construction accidents and work site accidents are common in Brooklyn Navy Yard, leaving injured workers with medical bills and lasting disabilities in some cases. Our Brooklyn Navy Yard construction accident lawyers can pursue compensation for you if you have a personal injury claim and help you pursue compensation to support yourself and your family.
  • Wrongful death—When the preventable death of a loved one occurred as a result of the wrongful act of another, the victim’s immediate family should talk with a compassionate attorney about the situation and the family’s legal rights. A wrongful death settlement may provide financial stability to a family that has lost a loved one whose income had helped support the household.
  • Lead poisoning—Lead-based paint can still be found on older buildings in Brooklyn Navy Yard and throughout New York City, although it has been banned since 1978. Exposure to lead causes mental and physical disabilities, particularly exposures to children. If you have been harmed by exposure to lead, we can help you pursue a lead poisoning claim.
