Every day, people across Long Island are injured in accidents. In many of these situations, no one is to blame. When the accident was caused by the negligence of another person or entity, however, that party can and should be held financially responsible for the damages that they have caused.
Personal injury cases may include anything from car and truck accidents to slip and falls to being hurt on the job. At Winkler Kurtz, LLP, we have represented injured New Yorkers for over 30 years, working with them to help secure the compensation that they deserve for their losses.
An accident can have devastating, life-changing consequences, including serious injury, emotional distress, property damage, and financial loss. Our firm works to ensure our clients receive the financial support they need to recover from any damages sustained.

We trust doctors, nurses, and medical facilities to act in our best interests. In most cases, health care professionals take care of patients in a skilled and competent manner. Unfortunately, there are situations where medical professionals and facilities fail to meet a basic standard of care, and patients and their families suffer as a result.
Medical malpractice includes injuries caused by failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication errors, delivery and labor errors, or hospital negligence. These mistakes can lead to significant long-term health issues, or even death. If a medical professional or facility has committed malpractice, Winkler Kurtz, LLP can help.
While a legal claim will not make you whole again, it can allow you to recover damages for the losses that you have suffered. It is also a way to seek justice, and potentially stop such a tragedy from occurring in the future. If you or a loved one have been injured by medical malpractice, contact our firm today for a free initial consultation.
