Other types of injuries our Brookhaven personal injury lawyers have helped victims recover from include:
Construction accidents: Construction accidents and deaths are common throughout New York State thanks to the thousands of construction sites present at any given time, and these injuries can be debilitating.
Defective products: From baby toys to medicines, defective products can affect every person, and it’s important that manufacturers and other parties are held liable if you or a loved one are injured by such a product.
Medical malpractice: When medical professionals, including doctors, nurses and pharmacists, make a mistake that causes injury, illness or death, our attorneys can help you hold that medical professional responsible.
Slip and fall: Wet floors, loose shelves and other issues in the workplace, stores, private homes and other properties can cause a person to slip, trip and fall, leading to broken bones and other serious injuries.
Truck accidents: Because semi trucks are so much bigger than the average passenger vehicle, the damage caused by accidents with these trucks can be devastating, often leading to serious injury or death.
Wrongful death: If a loved one dies due to someone else’s wrongful actions or negligence, it may be possible for surviving family members to hold that person accountable through a personal injury lawsuit.
