Qualified Accident Attorneys in Manhattan, NY Capably Handle Accidents and Injuries of Every Kind

New York County Personal Injury Lawyers

Common causes of personal injuries include poisoning, vehicle mishaps, medical errors, workplace accidents, slips and falls, drowning, and suffocation. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has labeled accidental poisoning a serious public health issue, and according to the Mayo Clinic, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries.

Other types of personal injuries caused by unintentional errors, recklessness, negligence, or the inaction or ineptitude of one party can lead to every imaginable type of personal injury to a victim. Some of the most common types of personal injuries that our New York County personal injury lawyers can help you with include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Cuts, bruises, and lacerations
  • Amputations
  • Other permanent injuries
  • Whiplash and neck injuries
  • Nerve, muscle, and connective tissue damage
  • Fractured and/or broken bones.
  • Pain, suffering, mental trauma, and PTSD
  • Wrongful death.

These injuries can require many different treatments, such as doctor consultations, testing, surgeries, therapy, and medication. Treatment costs can quickly spiral out of control, and it can become exceedingly difficult for you to cope both physically and financially with the outcomes of your accident.

That being said, for individuals and families, the treatment costs and lost income that arise from personal injuries such as these go beyond just dollars and cents. Victims can take years to recover from serious injuries or overcome the loss of a loved one. Similarly, permanent injuries caused by accidents can permanently alter the course of the lives of the affected families.

This is why you should speak with your seasoned accident attorneys in Manhattan, NY. With a dedicated team of New York County personal injury lawyers, Marvin A. Cooper, P.C. is ready to represent you at no upfront cost. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help you with your personal injury claim.

Examples of Personal Injury Liability Cases that Our Experienced New York County Personal Injury Lawyers Can Handle on Your Behalf

Every case is unique, as is every victim and every accident. However, there is a battle-tested formula for determining fault and liability for accidents, and liability often falls on a few identifiable parties. Consider the following scenarios.

  • An untrained doctor makes a serious mistake during a delivery and causes brain damage to a newborn baby.
  • A van driver drives while tired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, leading to an accident.
  • A business or property owner or operator ignores on-site hazards and someone slips and falls and sustains a serious brain, neck, or back injury.
  • A nursing home does not maintain a comfortable interior temperature or fails to provide adequate food or water to its residents and, as a result, a resident becomes ill or dies.
  • Poor or missing road signage or damaged roads cause an accident.

For each of these cases, a different at-fault party – in some cases, multiple parties – can bear some of the liability for the accidents and injuries caused by their negligence. Such parties can include doctors, nurses, vehicle operators, transportation companies, government offices, nursing homes, employees, business owners, business operators, and others.

Our job is to identify the at-fault party and determine the cause of your accident so that you can hold them responsible and file a claim with their insurer so that you are fairly and fully compensated for your losses.
