Our Upper West Side Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
The attorneys at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., are dedicated to providing personal service and fighting for the rights of those who have been injured because of others’ negligence or wrongful behavior. Our practice areas include:
- Slip and fall accidents
The owners and occupiers of property have a responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors. An Upper West Side slip and fall attorney may be able to help you hold them liable if they allow dangerous conditions, such as icy sidewalks, spilled liquids, or poorly lit stairwells, to exist on their property.
- Auto accidents
New York City has a high rate of auto collisions. If you have been injured in a car, motorcycle, truck, or other motor vehicle accident caused by another’s negligence or violation of traffic laws, an Upper West Side car accident lawyer may be able to help you recover compensation.
- Work and construction accidents
Construction sites are hazardous for workers, who suffer a greater risk of injury workers in any other industry. Construction workers can be harmed by falling objects, electrocution, falls, malfunctioning equipment, and many other hazards.
- Wrongful death
Losing a loved one is devastating, and if the death could have been avoided, the loss can be even harder for the family. If a family member has been killed due to another’s negligence, the surviving family members may be entitled to compensation.
- Lead poisoning
Lead has been used in many types of products, including paint, fuels, solder and pipes, and batteries. Lead can leach into the bodies of anyone who comes into contact with it and can create serious mental and physical ailments.
