NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Protecting The Rights Of Victims

At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., we focus our personal injury practice exclusively on helping people who have suffered catastrophic injuries in accidents that occurred because of another party’s negligence. Our founding attorney, Martin Edelman, has nearly 40 years of experience resolving complex personal injury claims, and he is widely recognized for the outstanding results he secures in these cases.

The sophisticated nature of the cases we accept has made Edelman & Edelman, P.C., the premier personal injury law firm in New York City. Our personal injury lawyers excel at the cases other firms turn away. We obtain compensation in cases where other firms – and, indeed, the insurance companies – said there is no viable claim. You will not find a New York legal team more dedicated to you and your case than Edelman & Edelman, P.C.

Strong Representation For Your Personal Injury Claim

We understand that our clients come to us for help when everyone else has told them they don’t have a case. Our New York City personal injury lawyers are known for their ability to find value in claims where the harm to the victim was not immediately apparent. Injury attorney Martin Edelman has a deep understanding of medicine, and he knows what types of injuries can occur in a particular type of accident. We work tirelessly to secure the maximum level of compensation available for your claim.

What Kinds Of Personal Injury Cases Do We Handle?

Our personal injury and car accident lawyers have decades of experience with all types of personal injury claims, including those related to:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Auto and other accidents are common in NYC, including car accidents, Uber accidents, rideshare accidents, truck accidents and others.
  • Construction accidents: Construction is among the most dangerous industries in NYC. Falls, crushing, burns and more can cause serious injuries that harm your career.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): TBI are some of the most severe of all injuries, as they can permanently affect someone’s life, personality and ability to work.
  • Mass transit accidents: We handle all kinds of mass transit accidents, including those involving buses, ferries, taxis, trains or subways.
  • Municipal vehicle accidents: If a public vehicle, such as a police car, fire truck or emergency vehicle, injures you, the path is complicated – but we can help.
  • Trucking-related accidents: Semi-truck accidents are devastating, whether caused by driver negligence, driver fatigue, improper loading, equipment failure, improper maintenance or regulatory violations.
  • Bicycle accidents: NYC is hazardous for bike riders. We handle all cases, particularly ones involving poorly designed bike lanes and streets.
  • Product liability claims: Dangerous or defective products, including medications, mean that the manufacturer or distributor behaved negligently and owes you compensation.
  • Serious burn injuries: Immensely painful or disfiguring burns can result from many accidents, and we are here to seek compensation for your treatment and other damages.
  • Sexual abuse victims: If someone abused you, a personal injury claim can help you regain your power and hold the perpetrator accountable.
  • Wrongful convictions: Did the state wrongfully convict you? We want to fight for justice through a civil rights lawsuit on your behalf.
  • Wrongful death of a family member: If you lost a loved one in an accident, we can help you recover compensation for damages such as lost income.

Our personal injury lawyers have handled cases like these many, many times. They have recovered multiple multimillion-dollar settlements and awards on behalf of people just like you.

New York Personal Injury Claims: What To Know

You may have a case if you can demonstrate that:

  1. Another individual or company’s actions or lack of action caused you harm.
  2. As a result of their negligence, you have compensable damages.

Some examples of common damages in personal injury lawsuits include:

  • Medical bills
  • Hospital stays
  • Doctor appointments
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering

Pain and suffering is typically calculated by multiplying the total amount of your economic damages, such as medical bills. To bring a personal injury claim, you need extensive evidence. Some of the evidence that our personal injury attorneys help clients gather may include medical records, eyewitness statements, expert testimony and more.

Watch Out For The Statutes Of Limitations

There are strict statutes of limitations for filing claims. In New York state, you have only three years from the date of an injury to file a personal injury claim. For wrongful death claims, this is two years. If you miss these deadlines, you forfeit the right to recover compensation for your damages through a lawsuit.

Why Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

We cannot overstate the importance of having a New York City personal injury attorney file your claim, communicate with the insurer and uphold your rights. There are many firms that end the attorney-client relationship the moment the case is resolved. We have seen too many cases throughout New York where the insurance companies will stall on paying court-ordered damages while the victims continue to suffer. Our injury lawyers go beyond winning. We stay with you, answer your questions and work to make sure you receive the full amount of the compensation awarded in your case and promptly address any complications that may arise.
