Harlem Legal Information
Depending on the facts and circumstances of your individual personal injury case, your lawsuit may be filed in one of three courts. You and your Harlem car accident lawyer will discuss and decide upon the most appropriate court in which to file your case.
If your lawsuit seeks $25,000 or less in damages, the New York City Civil Court located at 170 East 121st Street in Harlem will likely be the court in which your case is filed. For cases in which your damages are $25,000 or greater, your case may be filed with the New York County Supreme Court, which is located at 60 Centre Street in Manhattan. In some personal injury cases, you and your attorney may decide to file your case in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. This courthouse is located at 500 Pearl Street.
Our Harlem Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
We are proud to assist Harlem residents with their personal injury case. Our firm has extensive experience helping victims injured in a variety of ways, including:
- Slip and Fall Accidents/Trip and Fall Injuries
Owners of public and private properties have an obligation to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe manner. A slip and fall or trip and fall can occur if obstacles or hazards are not identified and cleaned or repaired in a reasonable time.
- Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents
Any motor vehicle accident can leave you and your passengers with catastrophic injuries that can have permanent effects. We can assist you in determining what your legal rights are following a serious motor vehicle crash in Harlem and will help you pursue the maximum amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.
- Workplace and Construction Accidents
The jobsite can be a dangerous place, and workers’ compensation benefits may not always be enough to cover all of your expenses and losses. You may be entitled to other legal remedies if your workplace or jobsite accident was caused by a third party.
- Wrongful Death
If a loved one is killed as a result of someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, surviving family members can bring a civil wrongful death action against the responsible party and recover damages and compensation to address the decedent’s and the family’s losses and expenses related to the death.
- Lead poisoning
In times past lead was commonly found in household products. Only recently have the detrimental health effects caused by lead exposure become known. You may be entitled to compensation if you were unwillingly or unknowingly exposed to lead and have now developed health complications as a result.
What to Expect When You Contact Our Harlem Law Office
When you visit our office to discuss your case, you can expect our highly trained staff to treat you professionally and with respect.
