New York is ranked as the 7th deadliest state to drive in, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Especially here in NYC, it can be dangerous for both drivers and pedestrians alike. Medical bills and repair costs can rack up after a crash. If your car is in the shop or totaled, you may need to pay for alternate means of travel. When you or a loved one suffers from an auto accident, you need an experienced accident attorney to fight for you. We can help you get the compensation you deserve for your accident.
Because auto accidents are often cleared within hours, it can be difficult to produce photographic evidence or witness statements. If possible, take photos of the scene. Be sure to contact the police to report the accident, and file a police report. The police report can be very helpful in building your case.
Bus Accidents in New York City
In New York City, bus accidents are a lot more common than in most other cities. Because of the size of buses, the injury you sustain can be much more severe. For bus riders, the lack of seatbelts can create more risk of injuries in the event of an accident. However, you must act quickly if you are injured in a bus accident. It can be difficult to deal with the MTA and city for bus accident injuries. Because of this, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to help you fight for your rights.
Pedestrian Auto Accidents
When a pedestrian is struck by a car, the risk of severe injury or death is much higher than in multi-car accidents. This is because there is nothing between you and the vehicle striking you. When a car strikes a pedestrian at 30 miles per hour, the fatality rate is about 40%. If you or your loved one is injured or killed as a result of a car striking them, you can fight for compensation. After seeking medical assistance, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you build your case.
At Fonte and Gelormino, we care about the communities and individuals we work with. Our team provides personalized case management to every client. If you are a loved one suffers from a personal injury, contact us to discuss if you have a case. Our team is ready to work with you to get the money you deserve.
Personal Injury and Worker’s Compensation
While state and federal regulations help reduce the risk of workplace injuries, accidents still occur all the time. Additionally, negligence from supervisors can lead to further risk of injury. Workers’ Compensation helps you recoup lost wages and pay for medical costs as a result of workplace accidents. However, many Workers’ Comp cases go unfulfilled because the injured party doesn’t have a lawyer fighting for them. We worked tirelessly to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
Construction sites are, by nature, extremely hazardous places with a higher risk for accidents. However, these hazards can be exacerbated by supervisors’ neglect, lack of safety equipment, and poor working conditions.
Construction is the most fatal occupation in NYC, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. If you have sustained a serious injury on a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation. You will need an experienced personal injury attorney to fight for you.
Slips & Falls and Trips & Falls
When you suffer from a Slip & Fall, your injury can be severe and even life-threatening. Back pain, head injuries, and spinal damage are common injuries in Slip & Fall cases. Generally, these cases are due to the negligence of the property owner. These cases often revolve around whether or not the injury could have been avoided, by either party.
Common causes of slips and trips include:
- Icy or snowy surfaces
- Broken or raised walkways or sidewalks
- Wet floors and spills
- Slippery substances
- Waxed or shined surfaces
