Aggressive Lawyers for the Seriously Injured

Personal Injury

Being injured in an accident is a dreadful experience and even more so when the negligent or reckless conduct of another is the cause. In addition to pain and suffering, many injury victims are left with long lasting emotional and financial burdens.

Located in Brewster, New York, The Law Office of Michael LoGuidice fights for the rights of accident victims in the greater New York area including Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Westchester, Putnam,  Dutchess, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We leverage our knowledge in personal injury law and negotiating skills to help our clients receive just compensation.

Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys

Unlike other law firms, our practice is dedicated exclusively to personal injury claims. Regardless of the size of a case, we are committed to providing each client with exceptional service. We are fierce advocates who aggressively pursue each claim. We work closely with our clients, are always available to answer questions and return all calls promptly. We focus on every detail in each case and fight to the obtain the maximum settlement.

We have considerable experience handling claims arising from a variety of accidents, including:

  • Automobile Accidents – although injury claims are covered under New York’s no-fault law, insurance companies often try to settle for as little money as possible. We are committed to helping our clients obtain just compensation.

  • Bicycle Accidents – because more people are riding bicycles today for pleasure and fitness , accidents have become increasingly common. While drivers and cyclists are both required to obey local and state traffic laws, an injured cyclist may be able to recover damages in an accident caused by a negligent driver.

  • Bus Accidents – passengers on school buses, public buses, and chartered buses are injured in accidents that are often the result of mechanical failure, reckless driving, rollovers or collisions. Depending on the circumstances, we will pursue claims against responsible parties such as drivers, the carriers, manufacturers, and government agencies.

  • Construction Accidents – construction work is inherently dangerous, however, workers have a right to a safe environment. We routinely pursue claims against negligent site owners, general and sub-contractors, architects and engineers, machinery or equipment manufacturers and insurers.

  • Dog Bite Accidents – if you have been bitten by a dog, you may be able to recover damages, provided that you can show the dog had a propensity to be dangerous and the pet owner knew or should have known of the danger.

  • Motorcycle Accidents – the physical toll of an accident can be devastating and many victims are left with catastrophic injuries. Although motorcyclists are often viewed unfavorably by the public, we believe injured bikers are entitled to just compensation from negligent drivers and/or manufacturers.

  • Pedestrian Accidents – while pedestrians must exercise reasonable care for their own safety, claims can be brought against negligent drivers who violate state traffic laws and cause injuries or death.

  • Product Liability – state and federal laws are designed to protect consumers against defective or dangerous products, however, many New Yorkers are seriously injured by poorly designed or manufactured products each year. We believe manufacturers and distributors of dangerous products must be held accountable.

  • Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents – property owners have a duty to provide a safe environment to visitors, but slip and fall accidents often lead to significant injuries. We routinely pursue claims against negligent residential and commercial property owners.

  • Train Accidents – there are about 3,000 train accidents across the country each year, even though traveling by train is safer than many other forms of transportation. If you were injured on a commuter rail line, subway, or other railway, we can help you obtain meaningful compensation.

  • Truck Accidents – even though the public is protected by state and federal truck safety laws, sharing the road with trucks and tractor trailers is dangerous. When collisions between trucks and passenger vehicles lead to devastating injuries, it is essential to have proper legal representation.

  • Wrongful Death – losing a loved one is never easy, but even more of a burden when the death is caused by another’s reckless, negligent or malicious conduct. Money can’t replace a lost loved one, however, negligent parties must be held accountable.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

Each personal injury case is unique, and the amount of a claim depends on many factors. However, you may be entitled to compensatory damages for pain and suffering, medical costs, lost wages, property damage and loss of future earnings.

Depending on the circumstances, you may also be able to recover punitive damages that are designed to punish the other party’s intentional or malicious conduct. While claims can often be settled through negotiations with insurers, we have the necessary skills and resources to litigate the matter in court if a fair and reasonable agreement cannot be reached.

Can I sue the government for a personal injury?

Our firm routinely pursues claims against New York City agencies such as the Housing Authority and the MTA, and other municipalities. It is important to note that in order to bring a lawsuit against a city, town, village, agency or other government entity it is necessary to file a notice of claim in writing within 90 days of the date of the accident. This document notifies the government that you intend to file a lawsuit and by filing a notice you give consent to undergo an examination by an independent medical professional.
