Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents remain one of the leading causes of personal injuries affecting Americans. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 2,177,000 motor vehicle accidents in 2016 that led to injuries. In that same year, there were an additional 34,439 people killed in motor vehicle accidents. These numbers include all types of accidents, including those involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians.
The Long Island personal injury attorneys of Winkler Kurtz, LLP have substantial experience handling cases involving motor vehicle accidents, including:
We aggressively pursue compensation for our clients through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, and when necessary, litigation. Our highly skilled trial lawyers understand how to get results so that our clients can move forward with their lives after an accident.
If you are hurt at work, the result can be devastating, leaving you unable to work and struggling to recover. In many cases, your injury may be covered by the New York workers’ compensation system, which will provide for compensation, medical treatment and other benefits. However, if your injury was caused by the negligence of a third party, then you may be entitled to recover damages from the responsible party. A highly skilled Long Island personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and determine if there is liability beyond the worker’ compensation system, and help you pursue a claim.
At Winkler Kurtz, LLP, we assist injured workers who have been hurt in a number of ways, including:
- Scaffolding/Ladder Falls
- Struck by an Object
- Machinery/Equipment Injuries
- Slip and Falls
- Construction Accidents
- Serious Injuries
- Wrongful Death
While not every work accident will lead to a personal injury claim, a full investigation of the facts in the case is necessary to ensure you are properly compensated and that all negligent parties are held accountable for your injuries. Our Long Island personal injury attorneys are adept at analyzing cases involving workplace injuries and helping our clients obtain the best possible outcome for their losses.
As a patient, you expect that the medical professionals treating you will be competent. However, in far too many cases, medical professionals fail to provide adequate care to their patients, resulting in serious injuries, long-term health issues, or even death. If a medical professional fails to meet the standard of care required under New York law and a patient is injured as a result, an experienced Long Island personal injury attorney may file a lawsuit against them.
Generally known as medical malpractice, these claims can encompass a wide range of injuries, such as:
- Birth Injury
- Brain Injury
- Wrongful Death
- Surgical Errors
- Hospital Negligence
- Failure to Diagnose
The lawyers of Winkler Kurtz, LLP understand the complexities of medical malpractice cases, which can involve an extraordinary number of files and the need for expert witnesses. We have helped hundreds of clients recover from injuries caused by negligent medical professionals and secured favorable outcomes for all damages sustained as a result of these careless acts.
