Tarrytown Personal Injury Lawyer
More than 12,000 emergency room visits a year in Westchester County’s central region (which encompasses Tarrytown and its eight neighboring towns) are due to accidental injuries, the leading cause of visits.
When a serious accident occurs, the effects can be devastating – emotionally, financially, and physically. These life-changing moments happen suddenly, and knowing where to go and what to do next can be daunting.
From making critical medical decisions to navigating insurance claims to making up for lost wages when you have to miss work, the aftermath of a personal injury accident can be overwhelming. When the cause of the accident is due to the negligence of another party, it can be even more complicated for families to know where to turn.

NY statute of limitations
It’s important to know that from the second the injury occurs, the clock is ticking.
In New York, a claim for personal injuries must be filed within three years of the event happening. Even if you’re still seeking medical treatment, don’t wait until everything is resolved.
Our lawyers can help build a strong case, cover the cost of your medical expenses until a settlement is reached or a jury award handed down, and be a guiding hand during an uncertain and challenging time for you and your family.
Tell your story
A personal injury attorney at our firm will start by sitting down with you to hear your story. We review the basic facts of the incident, along with your medical diagnosis, and identify possible defendants. We evaluate the strength of your case and guide you through the potential outcomes.
If we take on your case, we consult our network of investigative experts and specialists who can serve as expert witnesses on your behalf. We always give your case the attention it deserves.
Most importantly, we don’t win unless you do. You only pay us an agreed-upon legal fee following the successful resolution of your case. If you recover no money, you don’t owe us a dime.
