Queens Motorcycle Accident Lawyer NYC

If you’ve had a motorcycle accident, you need an attorney that knows motorcycle accident law inside and out.   Injuries are often severe and deaths are all too common, plus the laws are different for motorcycles than other types of motor vehicles.   Adding to the challenges, there is the perception that motorcyclists are daredevils that do not obey traffic laws.  Additionally, motorcycle cases are complicated, with some special laws and regulations that apply only to motorcycle accidents. We have been representing motorcyclists for more than 60 years, so we know everything about how to handle your case.

Kushner Hit with Lawsuits over Williamsburg, Brooklyn Development

I grew up with many stories about Williamsburg, Brooklyn, my father's hometown.  Whenever I complained about just about anything, his response would be, "at least you didn't grow up in Williamsburg."  I thought it was literally the worst place on Earth, with flies swarming around manure.  Actually, when he was growing up, in the 1930's the streets actually were [...]

The Great Mystery of Liability Claims and Policy Limits

There is a great deal of confusion about the different types of liability claims and the insurance coverage that applies. People wonder why there was full medical coverage for their friend’s accident, while they are paying out of pocket for their doctor’s bills.  People wonder why they can only collect $25,000 as compensation on their liability claim, even though they [...]

Everybody has a friend that slipped on a banana peel and collected a million dollars or an uncle that drove his car into a tree and retired on the proceeds on his personal injury settlement. [...]

Is An Employer Liable For Employee Car Accidents?
