Bronx Personal Injury Lawyer

Accidents and the injuries they cause affect people of every age and background. The leading causes of accidents and injuries—the kinds of cases that an experienced Bronx County personal injury lawyer at our firm is qualified to handle for you—are as follows:


Apart from motor vehicle accidents, poisoning kills more people in the United States every year than all other accident types combined. Prescription errors, drug abuse, mislabeling, and dosage errors are some of the leading causes of poisoning deaths and injuries every year.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can lead to brain, back, and neck trauma, and they are also a leading cause of spinal cord injuries (SCIs) that typically cost upward of $100,000 per case to treat. Sprains, fractures, broken bones, whiplash, and amputations can also be caused in a motor vehicle accident. In many cases, driver errors, distraction, aggression, or intoxication are the culprits for motor vehicle accidents.

Elder Accidents

Elderly individuals can suffer serious injuries and even death as the result of slips and falls, medical negligence, and abuse, as well as prescription errors, muscle atrophy, malnutrition, and bedsores. In such cases, nursing homes and/or their employees or medical treatment facilities and/or their staff may be liable for damages.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace hazards such as chemical spills, machine accidents, and falling objects can also lead to serious injuries or death in workplace settings, and these hazards affect workers across retail, healthcare, and even private offices and businesses.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Anything from poor signage to slippery surfaces and damaged roads or sidewalks can lead to a serious slip and fall. According to the CDC’s documentation on Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries, approximately three million elderly people are treated in the hospital every year for slips and falls.

A Qualified Bronx County Personal Injury Lawyer Can Establish Fault and Quantify Your Personal Injury Case

Medical negligence, nursing home accidents, workplace mishaps, slips and falls, business premises liability, and driving errors are all examples of how an accident can occur, leading to fatalities or personal injuries. Based on how and where your accident occurred and who was responsible for it, you may have the right to seek compensation from several parties for your losses. Consider the following scenarios:

  • A drowsy truck driver who was overworked and did not conduct important safety checks or did not properly secure his or her load before hitting the road causes an accident that harms you.
  • A doctor or another medical caregiver who did not have the requisite training or expertise to treat you caused you to suffer a medical injury.
  • A drunk or aggressive driver hit you.
  • Your workplace failed to place important warning signs on dangerous, damaged, or slippery surfaces, resulting in a fall in which you broke several bones or sustained head, neck, or brain injuries.
  • A negligent construction site worker accidentally dropped an object on you from a height.
  • A nursing home failed to properly care for its elderly residents or did not properly train or screen its staff and a resident suffered abuse or injuries as a result.

For each of these scenarios,  above, there may be one or more parties that can be held liable for the injuries and/or damages you suffered in an accident. These parties may include:

  • A vehicle owner or operator
  • Business entities, such as a trucking company or an industrial firm
  • The maintenance teams responsible for vehicle servicing or road repairs
  • Machine operators
  • Doctors, nurses, and/or hospital administrators
  • Nursing home owners or staff
  • Property or business owners or operators
