The Holland Tunnel connecting New York and New Jersey has its New York terminal in the Tribeca neighborhood. Fans of the ’80s movie Ghostbusters will recognize the Hook & Ladder Company No. 8 building from the movie – another Tribeca landmark. New York Law School is also located in Tribeca, as is Hudson River Park.

Our Tribeca Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
The Tribeca personal injury law firm of David Resnick & Associates, P.C., has extensive experience assisting people who have been injured in:
- Slip and fall accidents/trip and fall accidents
When property owners invite others onto their property for personal or business purposes, they must ensure that hazards and dangers are either brought to the attention of the guest or are adequately cleaned up or repaired. Property owners who fail to do this may find themselves liable for their injured guests’ injuries and losses. Let our Tribeca slip and fall attorneys assist you with your case.
- Car, truck, or motorcycle accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can change your life and the life of your family in an instant. Because of New York’s “no-fault” laws, you need experienced legal counsel after a motor vehicle crash in order to determine the legal remedies to which you may be entitled. Our Tribeca car accident lawyers are prepared to help.
- Work and construction site accidents
Workers’ compensation laws compensate workers injured at the office or on the jobsite. However, if your workplace accident was caused by the carelessness of a third party, you may be entitled to additional compensation above and beyond your workers’ compensation benefits.
- Wrongful death
A fatal accident caused by the careless behavior and actions of another can cause surviving family members to struggle to pay the deceased final expenses. A wrongful death lawsuit can hold the person responsible for the decedent’s death accountable for these expenses and losses.
- Lead poisoning
In the past lead was found in many common household products. It has only been in the past few decades that the health dangers associated with lead exposure have been fully understood. Those who have suffered injuries or illnesses attributable to lead exposure may be entitled to compensation.
