AGGRESSIVE NEW YORK PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER REPRESENTING ACCIDENT VICTIMS
Michael W. Goldstein is also a New York personal injury lawyer zealously representing accident victims throughout New York State. He is a throughly experienced New York personal injury attorney aggressively fighting for accident victims seriously injured in car accidents, hit & run accidents, motor vehicle collisions caused by uninsured or under insured motorists, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, roller blade accidents, in-line skating accidents, trip and fall accidents, slip and fall accidents, premises accidents, construction site accidents, accidental death, wrongful death accidents, and other accidents caused by a defendant’s negligence in New York City, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, Long Island, Nassau County, Suffolk County, Rockland County, Westchester County, and upstate New York.
We represent seriously injured victims of accidents caused by the negligence, carelessness or other fault of motorists, vehicle owners, property owners, owners of retail stores, restaurants and other businesses, owners or managing agents of apartment buildings, and individuals and companies responsible for operating, maintaining or repairing other types of premises.
Although almost all of our personal injury practice is currently devoted to representing injured plaintiffs, in the past, we have represented several insurance companies in the defense of accident cases. Accordingly, we have the advantage of knowing both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ strategies in New York personal injury litigation. We represent victims of the following types of accidents:
AREAS OF PERSONAL INJURY PRACTICE
Motor Vehicle Accidents
We represent seriously injured victims of motor vehicle accidents, including accidents caused by uninsured or underinsured drivers, hit and run accidents, accidents involving a taxi, car service or other livery vehicle, accidents involving a bus, truck, or other commercial vehicle, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, etc.
There are more issues in a New York motor vehicle accident case than merely proving the client’s injuries and the defendant’s negligence. New York auto accident cases often involve various additional legal issues in the areas of New York No-Fault Law, New York Uninsured Motorist Law, and optional New York Underinsured Motorist coverage (also known as Supplementary Uninsured Motorist Coverage). Michael W. Goldstein’s many years of representing seriously injured accident victims has given him extensive experience in each of these areas of New York personal injury law.
We represent seriously injured victims of premises accidents, including accidents caused by broken, cracked or otherwise dangerous floors, steps, walkways, sidewalks, as well as other dangerous or defective conditions, improper maintenance, repair or cleaning, overcrowding, insufficient supervision, improper security, or other negligence
Michael W. Goldstein has successfully represented many clients who were seriously injured as a result of dangerous conditions in stores, restaurants, office buildings, apartment buildings, subways, parking lots, or on sidewalks. Many types of hazards are caused by negligent ownership, maintenance, repair or supervision. His vast experience representing clients injured in premises accidents is not limited to the routine trip and fall, or slip and fall cases. He has successfully handled accidents caused by hidden stairways, improperly attached railings, inadequate illumination, and other hazardous conditions.
Construction Site Accidents
We represent seriously injured victims of construction site accidents, including falls from defective ladders and scaffolding; accidents involving defective hoists; accidents caused by dangerous construction site conditions, or other unsafe working conditions; violations of worker safety rules including OSHA; and other accidents occurring at construction sites.
Construction site accidents in New York may involve many of the same principles of negligence that governs other personal injury cases, but may also involve the New York State Labor Law, as well as other rules and regulations. Construction site accidents may be caused by the client falling from a defective ladder or scaffolding, the property owner’s failure to provide required safety belts or other safety equipment, objects falling from heights and striking the plaintiff, improper operation of construction vehicles such as a truck, back hoe, bulldozer, etc., or other dangerous conditions created by the property owner, general contractor, subcontractor, or any company other than the injured person’s employer.
STATE OF THE ART CASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
All commercial litigation and real estate litigation cases that we handle are entered in a sophisticated computer case management system, which we have customized to best serve our practice. This system insures immediate access to all aspects of each client’s case, and enables us to provide accurate and timely information to each client. Also, our system expedites the preparation of litigation documents, thereby assuring timely service and filing of important documents.
There are strict time limitations that apply to New York lawsuits, including commercial litigation, and other types of New York litigation. The statute of limitations (time limit for commencing litigation) varies depending on the type of case, and in some instances, depending on the defendant being sued. Furthermore, many types of claims and lawsuits also have other time limitations (in addition to the statute of limitations), such as time limitations for filing a Notice of Claim, Notice of Intention to Make Claim, and other important documents.
