Our Staten Island Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
The attorneys at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., are dedicated to helping people who have suffered severe personal injuries in a wide range of accidents on Staten Island. Examples of our practice areas include:
We expect the places we visit to be reasonably safe. Accidents can happen when owners, occupiers and other responsible parties fail to do their duty to keep their properties reasonably free of hazards. 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.
Crashes are common on Staten Island’s streets and highways. Some of them result in serious injuries or even fatalities. Usually, some form of driver negligence was the cause of the crash. Examples include distracted driving, speeding, reckless driving, drunk driving and other types of carelessness. Our attorneys help people who get hurt in accidents that were caused by someone else’s wrongdoing.
Many people enjoy the freedom and convenience of riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are very vulnerable to crashes, particularly when other drivers fail to keep a proper lookout. Severe injuries and death are all too often the result of a motorcycle crash. Our lawyers stand up for the rights of motorcycle riders who were hurt by the negligence of others.
Staten Island is served by public transit buses and school buses, while other types of buses often travel the streets and roads in the area. When a bus is involved in a crash, the consequences are often quite dire for both the occupants of the bus as well as people in other vehicles or on foot. David Resnick & Associates, P.C., represents victims of bus accidents on Staten Island.
Due to their size and weight, trucks are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. When a truck collides with a lighter passenger vehicle, it is usually the car’s occupants who fare the worst. Truckers are under pressure from employers and shippers to make deliveries on time. This can lead to speeding, fatigue, aggressive driving and other dangerous practices. Our lawyers are prepared to seek out all potential sources of recovery for truck accident victims.
Workers are susceptible to on-the-job injuries every time they go to work. Any type of worker can get injured, although some professions are riskier than others. Construction sites are among the most hazardous workplaces. People who get hurt at work are usually entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In some accidents – particularly those on construction sites – injured workers may also be able to recover additional compensation.
In the most tragic cases, accidents cause the death of a loved one. The family members left behind may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim if a close relative died due to someone else’s negligence. New York law determines who can bring a wrongful death claim, when it must be filed, and what sort of compensation may be recovered. David Resnick & Associates, P.C., offers compassionate legal assistance to grieving families during the difficult period after a loved one’s accidental death.
