East New York Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury law, sometimes referred to as tort law, is where an injured party can seek compensation for pain and suffering caused by someone else.

There are three main ways a product can be considered defective:
- A flaw in the general design
- Manufacturing defects
- Insufficient instructions or warnings for appropriate use
Defects can make almost any product from toys to appliances to cars very dangerous. You might have a personal injury case if you were injured in a product that was defective in one of the above three ways.
Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain a safe environment. Premises liability claims are valid when a property owner is negligent in maintaining a safe environment– and that negligence leads to an accident and injury.
Premises liability accidents include slip and falls, swimming pool accidents, and dog bites. They can occur almost anywhere from shopping malls, public parks, grocery stores, and even another person’s home.
Car accidents are very common in East New York, and therefore make up a large part of the personal injury cases. Usually, car accidents are the result of driver error. If another driver caused a car accident that led to your injuries, you could hold them financially responsible in a personal injury case.
Defective medical devices and medical malpractice
Medical device and prescription drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make sure that their products are safe. Unfortunately, they sometimes fail, and that leads to the injury of an innocent victim. These cases could get compensation for the harm they’ve caused. Medical malpractice personal injury cases involve injuries that were sustained because of a medical professional’s negligence– from admin to nursing to surgery.
