Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Manhattan

After practicing with larger firms in the city early in his career, personal injury attorney David Resnick saw firsthand the need for a greater focus on personalized client attention and frequent communication. That prompted him to launch his own firm from a small office in his New York apartment.

Since David Resnick & Associates, P.C., was founded in 1998, the firm has grown into a successful practice with offices in Midtown Manhattan. Although the firm has grown, David’s commitment to client service has never wavered.

Our law firm’s office is located at 450 7th Avenue, Suite 409, putting us right in the heart of Manhattan and close to many well-known city landmarks. The building that houses our office is located across the street from Macy’s flagship Herald Square store. Within just a few blocks of David Resnick & Associates, P.C., are famous New York City sites such as Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building, Bryant Park, and the New York Public Library. Times Square is just a few blocks up 7th Avenue from our office.

It’s easy to get to David Resnick & Associates, P.C.’s office by public transit. Not only is our office accessible by major bus routes, but we are also near a number of Subway stations, including 34th Street – Penn Station and 34th Street – Herald Square Station.

The legal team at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., is proud to be a part of the vibrant city of New York, with more than 1.6 million people in Manhattan alone and millions of visitors every year. Manhattan in many ways serves as the nation’s financial, fashion, and cultural capital. It is home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange, as well as the headquarters of many major corporations. Our office is located within Manhattan’s famous Garment District, which is known for the many fashion houses located in the area. David Resnick & Associates is also close to many of the famed Broadway theaters.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

David Resnick & Associates, P.C., is committed to serving individuals in Manhattan who have sustained serious personal injuries in a wide variety of accidents. Some of our practice areas include the following:

Premises Liability

You expect the public places you visit to be reasonably safe from hazards. Unfortunately, many owners, occupiers, and others in control of buildings and other facilities fall short of their duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. Referred to as “premises liability,” this area of the law covers injuries caused by slip-and-fall accidents, trip-and-fall accidents, inadequate security, dog bites, elevator accidents, and similar types of incidents. David Resnick & Associates, P.C., has earned a reputation for success with personal injury lawsuits in Manhattan. Examples of recoveries secured by the firm include $2,000,000 for a man who sustained a fractured leg when he was assaulted in a bodega, $1,750,000 for a woman who injured her neck and back when she slipped on a wet floor in a supermarket, $1,000,000 for a victim of a slip and fall in a building with broken stairway lights and $650,000 for a victim of a slip and falls on coffee in an office building.

Car Accidents

Manhattan’s streets are notorious for their heavy traffic and sometimes aggressive drivers. Serious car accidents frequently result from driver carelessness and forms of negligence, such as drunk driving, speeding, driver distraction, fatigue, failure to yield right-of-way, and other infractions. These crashes often cause severe personal injuries that can have serious effects on a victim’s life and livelihood. David Resnick & Associates, P.C., is committed to helping people who get hurt in car accidents in Manhattan. We’ve developed a record of successes in car accident cases in New York, including $300,000 for a man who hurt his shoulder in a rear-end car accident, for example.

Pedestrian Accidents

More people travel by foot in Manhattan than perhaps anywhere else in the United States. With so many locals, tourists, and visitors on business walking the streets, pedestrian accidents happen with tragic frequency. When a vehicle collides with a pedestrian, the person on foot often suffers serious injuries. In fact, the New York City Department of Transportation reports that pedestrians are 10 times more likely than vehicle occupants to die in a crash. When a motorist’s negligence is behind a pedestrian accident in Manhattan, the lawyers at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., have the experience and resources to seek maximum compensation. For example, our successes include $600,000 for a man who injured his neck when he was struck by a car and $535,000 for a child who injured his leg when he was struck by a car as he was crossing the street behind an ice cream truck.

Motorcycle Accidents

Many commuters find motorcycles to be a convenient way to get around Manhattan, while others simply enjoy the freedom associated with biking. While riding a motorcycle has lots of plusses, safety is not one of them. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to suffering severe injuries or death in collisions with other vehicles. Although other motorists are at fault for many motorcycle accidents, insurance companies often try to shift the blame to the biker by playing up stereotypes about motorcyclists. The personal injury lawyers at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., stand up for the rights of motorcyclists who were hurt through the negligence of others. For example, we secured $350,000 for the estate of a man killed in a motorcycle accident.

Bus Accidents

Many types of buses travel throughout Manhattan. These include city buses carrying commuters, buses taking tourists on sightseeing trips around the city, school buses transporting students, and charter buses and inter-city buses. Bus accidents can injure not only occupants of the bus itself but also pedestrians and people in other vehicles. David Resnick & Associates, P.C., represents victims of bus accidents in Manhattan.

Truck Accidents

While tractor-trailers are a rarer sight in Manhattan, many other types of trucks travel the city’s busy streets to make deliveries and pick up goods. Due to their larger size and heavier weight, trucks are capable of causing very serious injuries to pedestrians, cyclists, and those in passenger vehicles. Truck drivers face lots of pressure from their employers to make deliveries on time, which can lead to speeding, fatigue, aggressive driving, and other hazards. When these and other forms of negligence result in an accident, victims may be entitled to significant compensation from potentially several sources. The attorneys at our firm are equipped to seek out all potential sources of recovery for truck accident victims in Manhattan.

Taxi Accidents

Yellow cabs are so common in Manhattan that they are one of the unofficial symbols of the city. More than 13,000 medallion taxis carry passengers throughout Manhattan and the other boroughs of New York. With so many taxis on the streets, accidents are relatively common. In fact, city statistics show that an average of 10 taxicab accidents happen in New York during a typical day. This is despite strict safety rules imposed by the city. Some victims of taxi accidents are the fare-paying passengers themselves, while others include people in other vehicles and people walking. If you have been hurt in or by a taxi in Manhattan, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. The personal injury attorneys at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., can help.

Subway Accidents

New Yorkers and visitors alike rely on the city’s famous Subway system to travel in Manhattan and throughout the city’s other boroughs. Although the trains are usually an efficient and safe way to get around underground, accidents do happen in New York’s Subway system. In addition to accidents involving the trains themselves, many people are injured due to dangerous conditions in stations. If you have been hurt on the Subway, it is critical to get help from an experienced Manhattan personal injury lawyer like those at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., as these accidents usually have a very short deadline for filing a claim.

Workplace & Construction Accidents

Hundreds of thousands of people work in Manhattan every day, including many who commute into the city from the outer boroughs or even surrounding states like New Jersey and Connecticut. Anyone can get hurt on any type of job, though certain lines of work are more dangerous than others. Construction sites are among the most hazardous workplaces in Manhattan. Victims of workplace accidents are typically entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In some cases – particularly those involving accidents on Manhattan construction sites – injured workers may also be able to recover additional compensation through a lawsuit against the parties responsible for the accident. David Resnick & Associates, P.C., works hard to uncover all potential sources of recovery for injured workers.

Wrongful Death

Tragically, some accidents in Manhattan result in the ultimate personal injury: death. The surviving family members of someone who dies in an accident caused by someone else’s death may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties. New York law sets out specific requirements regarding who can bring a wrongful death claim, what sorts of damages can be recovered, and the timeline for filing. The legal team at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., offers compassionate legal assistance to grieving families during the difficult time after a loved one’s death in an accident. We are dedicated to helping survivors seek justice for their lost relatives.
