New York Motor Vehicle Accidents
Obtaining compensation after a motor vehicle accident in New York requires navigating through a confusing array of no-fault insurance and fault-based insurance requirements, including basic Personal Injury Protection (PIP), additional PIP, MVAIC, Bodily Injury Liability, and more. We work to get full and fair compensation for your serious injuries. If the insurance company doesn’t settle, we take them to court and let a jury decide how much you are entitled to.
Our practice includes all types of New York motor vehicle accidents, including those involving:
Construction is big business in New York. It is also one of the most dangerous occupations and one of the most frequent causes of injury and death among workplace accidents. New York labor law provides many protections for construction workers, and employers and property owners can be held absolutely liable for statutory violations that lead to harm. Pursuing a successful construction accident claim requires a thorough understanding of highly technical New York labor laws, rules and regulations in the Industrial Code, and the complexities of pre-trial law and motion practice.
At James Lo Esq., P.C., we handle many types of construction related accidents such as:
- Scaffolding Accidents
- Falls from ladders
- Construction Site Falls
- Building Collapses
- Unsafe/ Dangerous Equipment Accidents
- Cutting Accidents
- Elevator Accidents
- Fork Lift Accidents
- Dumpster Accidents
Slip & Fall Injuries
Building owners owe a duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition for the safety of the public who may be on their property. A slip and fall or trip and fall can cause serious, debilitating injury, but proving the nature and extent of the injury is sometimes quite complicated. An additional challenge in many premises liability cases is proving how long the dangerous condition existed before the accident occurred, and that an unreasonable period of time passed without the property owner taking measures to make the premises safe or warn the public about the danger. With over 20 years of experience in New York personal injury law, attorney James Lo understands the intricacies of New York law regarding sidewalk accidents, elevator accidents, accidents involving public property, and other complex aspects of slip and fall injuries.
Our firm handles many types of premises liability accidents involving not only trip and fall, but also injuries caused by:
- Accidents in commercial and residential buildings
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Stairway and staircase falls
- Inadequate building security leading to assault and other incidents involving bodily harm
- Inadequate and defective maintenance of building and property
- Sidewalk accidents
- Playground Accidents
Defective Products Injuries
Product manufacturers have a duty to only release products to the public that are reasonably safe for their intended purpose and other foreseeable uses, and companies can be held strictly liable for their failure to do so. Strict liability generally means that it is not necessary to prove that the manufacturer was negligent, but only that a damaging product was unreasonably defective or dangerous when it left the manufacturer’s control. There are exceptions where a manufacturer may escape liability, and therefore it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to learn more.Our products liability practice is available to handle claims involving design defects, manufacturing defects, or a failure to warn that makes a product unreasonably unsafe.
Our experience handling accidents involving persons who were injured or killed by dangerous and unsafe products extends to areas such as:
- Defective consumer products
- Cylinder explosions
Doctors and other licensed medical professionals are required to treat patients to a certain accepted standard of care and competence, and they can be held liable for their medical errors when their treatment falls below this standard. Examples of medical negligence and medical mistakes that may cause serious injury or death include missed or incorrect diagnoses, delayed diagnoses, surgery errors, birth injuries, medication errors and more. We work with many of-counsel law firms to handle cases involving different types of medical malpractice.
