Types of Personal Injury Cases our Firm Handles in Babylon, NY
If someone else’s negligence caused your accident, we want you to be able to hold the liable party legally responsible. Our firm handles all types of personal injury cases that take place in or involved residents of Babylon, and a lawyer from our team will handle yours from start to finish. The types of cases we handle include:
- Motor vehicle accidents – If you were injured in a car, truck, motorcycle, bus, bicycle versus motor vehicle, or pedestrian accident that was not your fault, you could be eligible for compensation for your injuries and other crash-related losses.
- Slip and falls – If your accident happened on someone else’s property, such as a retail store, restaurant, or private residence, you could be entitled to damages due to the owner or manager’s negligent or reckless actions.
If you or a loved one experienced a slip or trip and fall due to water or other substance left on the floor or icy conditions not cleaned up, for example, we will work to prove the owner knew or, had they exercised reasonable care, should have known, about the potential hazard but did not take appropriate action to repair it.
- Dog bites – A dog bite could leave you traumatized and in need of ongoing medical treatment. If someone’s dog injured you and they knew the dog was vicious or attacked before, we will hold the dog owner legally accountable.
- Nursing home abuse or neglect – If you or a loved one was the victim of abuse or neglect at the hands of a nursing home, you could be entitled to damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Abuse or neglect in a nursing home is unacceptable and can cause physical and financial trauma to the resident and their family. Our firm will file a claim or lawsuit and hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.
