Personal Injury Claims
If you have been injured through the fault of another individual or entity, you may have a personal injury claim. Injury lawyers at Duffy & Duffy handle a multitude of personal injury cases on a daily basis, such as vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, construction accidents and matters involving dangerous prescription drugs. Here is more information on the cases our firm most commonly handles:
- Car Accident Lawyers
Motor vehicles of all types and sizes are on the roads every day and as the number of vehicles on the road increases, so does the number of accidents. Accidents involving a car, truck, SUV or a motorcycle can forever affect the life of passengers, drivers, pedestrians or bicyclists. Many of these accidents are caused by the drivers’ failure to pay attention to the traffic signals and conditions on the road. This may be due to the driver’s intoxication, inexperience or simply carelessness. As the use of cell phones in cars increases accidents, taking place because the driver was texting, are becoming commonplace. Our injury lawyers will thoroughly investigate the occurrence, hiring accident reconstruction experts, if necessary and help you get the compensation to reimburse you for pain and suffering, as well as monetary loss, such as medical expenses.
- Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Our firm also specializes in representing victims of doctor’s negligence. Injury lawyers at Duffy & Duffy, we have a proven record of success in all areas of medical malpractice, including but not limited to: failure to diagnose cancer, surgical errors, Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy matters, hypoxia litigation and anesthesia errors. These injuries are sustained through avoidable mistakes or careless omissions of physicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists or other medical professionals, charged with care of their patients. New York and neighboring states each have specific time frames and procedures which must be followed to maintain a successful lawsuit against a healthcare provider, and an injury lawyer in our office will go over important details concerning medical malpractice litigation at your first meeting.
- Construction Accident Lawyers
Under the New York Workers Compensation law, an employee is prohibited from suing the employer for injuries sustained in a construction accident. The law provides for payment of employee’s medical expenses and lost wages, but prevents him from making a claim for pain and suffering. However, if another person or entity, such as a subcontractor or the owner of the premises on which the accident took place is liable for your injuries, a claim can be made against them, seeking recovery or monetary and non-monetary damages. Attorneys at Duffy & Duffy have an excellent reputation in helping injured persons recover for damages sustained in construction accidents and will be happy to review your case with you to see if a third-party can be brought in to the suit.
- Lawsuits for Wrong Prescriptions
Medical mistakes involving issuance of wrong prescriptions or incorrect drug dosage are widespread. The Food and Drug Administration finds that over 1 million people are injured every year due to medication errors. If you have experienced a serious side effect after taking a prescribed medication our injury lawyers will carefully review your pharmaceutical record to see if there is a viable cases against the prescribing doctor or negligent pharmacist.
