You have a right to compensation after being injured because of someone else's negligence. The Law Offices of Ronald M. Schiffman's accident lawyers provide start-to-finish personal injury law representation that gives you peace of mind. We are prepared to handle a broad variety of cases in the pursuit of compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses that can result from a sudden personal injury accident.
Under New York's "No Fault Law," you are entitled to your auto insurance company paying for your medical expenses. You also have the right to bring a lawsuit against the drivers you believe caused the accident for your pain and suffering, and any other items not covered by 'No Fault". If you are a passenger or pedestrian, you need to know your rights. For passengers and pedestrians who do not own automobiles, the driver of the vehicle is responsible for your medical bills. Bicyclists hold the same protections.
If you have been injured in an auto accident...
It is important to take pictures of all vehicles involved in the accident, to know the location of the vehicle if it was towed, and to know the possibility of cause from a defective vehicle.
With slip, trip and fall injuries, it is important to report the accident to the property owner or their representative following an accident on their property. If you are injured in a supermarket, store or an office building or an an adjacent parking lot, an accident report should be prepared at the time of the accident.
If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall accident...
Get pictures as soon as possible of the condition that caused your fall; such as a defective sidewalk, wet or slippery floor, raised or uneven concrete, or other defect. if you are contacted by the owner of the building's insurance company, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible to learn your rights instead of discussing the details with them.
We handle medical, dental, and podiatric malpractice cases. Malpractice is defined as a departure from the standards of medical practice that result in injury or an aggravation of an injury due to negligence or failure to timely diagnose or properly treat a condition or illness.
Physicians and dentists do not guarantee results, but they have a responsibility to make a timely diagnosis of a condition or illness so that it can be properly treated before it gets worse. Our firm maintains strong relationships with a host of medical and dental experts who are available for consultation to determine if there was a departure from accepted medical or dental practices. We also suggest that you keep track of all your medical providers and bills.

NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE
Bedsores and/or injuries caused by tripping or falling in nursing home facility or assaults by other residents or employees are not acceptable and are a basis for a lawsuit. The elderly are vulnerable and their loved ones should be aware of their rights. Bedsores should be photographed as soon as possible because these are not natural byproducts of someone who is bedridden. There are procedures that should be followed by the nursing home staff to prevent bedsores or other preventable injuries.
