Midtown Legal Information
If you have been the victim of a personal injury in Midtown, your case may be heard in one of three courts. If your damages total less than $25,000, your case may be heard at the New York City Civil Court, but if they exceed $25,000, the New York County Supreme Court may hear the case.
Personal injury cases are heard in federal court only if the parties are from different states and the amount of damages is more than $75,000, or if a federal law was violated. In that case, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York may hear your case.
Our Midtown Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
The legal team at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., is dedicated to vigorously and thoroughly representing the interests of those injured by the negligence of another. In particular, our practice areas include:
- Auto accidents
Unfortunately, car crashes in New York City are all too common and can lead to horrific injuries and even death. If you have been injured in such an accident and were not at fault, you may be able to recover compensation for the harm you suffered with the help of one of our Midtown car accident lawyers.
- Slip and fall accidents
Property owners are required to keep their premises safe for others. If you were hurt on another individual’s property, a Midtown slip and fall attorney may be able to help you hold the responsible party accountable if he or she allowed dangerous conditions like poor lighting, spills, or uneven flooring to exist on the property.
- Wrongful death
The death of a relative or loved one is always difficult, but coping financially and emotionally is made even harder if the death could have been avoided. If you lost a relative due to another person’s reckless or negligent conduct, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Lead poisoning
Lead is used as an ingredient in many products, including fuel, batteries, pipes, and makeup, although its use in paint was banned in 1978. Contact with this element can cause a lead buildup in the system, resulting in permanent and severe developmental disabilities which often are not diagnosed until adulthood.
- Work and construction accidents
Construction workers are at greater risk of injury than the employees of any other industry. This is in large part due to the presence of dangerous equipment and chemicals on construction sites. If you suffered a fall, were electrocuted, or were otherwise injured on a construction site, please contact a Midtown construction injury attorney today.
