New York Personal Injury Lawyers
Our Personal Injury Lawyers are Holding Defendants Liable for Clients in New York
Accidents happen, but only rarely are they “true accidents.” Many of them are tied to careless acts of a single person. Others are tied to careless acts or omissions of a business or multiple people. When accidents are the result of acts or omissions, and injuries result, victims might be able to hold negligent parties liable for damages.
A personal injury claim is a term used to capture the pursuit of damages when another person or entity causes your injuries. Personal injury claims involve injuries that result from negligent driving, slip and fall accidents, and malpractice, among many others.

We Help Victims on Long Island File Claims After Getting Hurt in Trucking Accidents
There are thousands of trucks driving through Queens, Nassau and Suffolk every day. It is rare to go more than a day or two without hearing about an accident involving a truck on the Long Island Expressway. Sadly, trucking accidents are rarely “minor.” The weight and design of trucks mean that when a trucker is negligent, other drivers on the road are at risk of serious injuries. Speeding, driving while tired, using defective equipment, and violating regulations often cause trucking accidents.
Trucking accidents can be complex. This is partly because of the thousands of rules and regulations that govern the trucking industry. It is also because there might be multiple parties responsible for the accident. You can count on our lawyers to provide you with aggressive representation in your trucking accident claim. We have experience and resources, which are required to obtain a positive outcome.
Our Personal Injury Lawyers Handle Construction Accidents in New York
Construction on Long Island is everywhere. There are men and women at risk of getting injured or killed while on those jobs. Worksites must follow safety rules and regulations. Unfortunately, accidents occur on construction sites- whether the rules are followed or not. High voltage, heavy equipment, and working high off the ground, are just a few of the conditions that lead to devastating injuries.
As with many other types of personal injury claims, there are often multiple negligent parties responsible for construction accidents. At Alonso Krangle, LLP, we understand the laws that govern construction and workplace accidents. Let us help you obtain damages if you have been injured in a Long Island construction accident.
Did You Slip and Fall in Queens? Call Our Lawyers for Help Filing a Personal Injury Claim
In New York, a person who owns or controls a premise has a duty. The duty is to use reasonable care to keep the premise reasonably safe. The duty is owed to anyone whose presence on the premise is reasonably foreseeable.
Despite this duty, people get hurt daily in the homes or places of business of others. They fall down steps, trip on the carpet, slip on ice, and slip and fall on wet floors. If the person in control of the premise was negligent, you might be able to collect compensation for your slip and fall injuries.
Boating Accidents on Long Island Lead to Personal Injury Claims in Nassau and Suffolk Counties
We are surrounded by water and boaters who take advantage of proximity to such beauty. But, boating accidents on Long Island are common. This should be unsurprising given the number of boaters, especially during the summer.
Boat operators have the duty to keep their passengers and others reasonably safe. This duty is similar to that of motor vehicle drivers on the road. When a boat operator is negligent, and people get hurt, he or she might be liable for the injuries. Examples of negligence while operating a boat include boating while intoxicated, speeding, and boating while distracted.
Burn Injury Victims Seek Help from Our Personal Injury Lawyers
Burn injuries can be fatal. At the very least, they can cause pain and disfigurement. Who might be negligent and, therefore, liable for burn injuries? The answer depends on the individual circumstances. Some common situations where negligence leads to burn injuries include:
- When defective products cause burns, such as Lithium Ion batteries, space heaters, flat irons or barbeques, the manufacturers might be liable for negligence
- Landlords are sometimes liable for injuries from fires that occur on their properties. They have duties to follow fire safety codes and maintain exits.
- Employers may be liable for injuries from fires that occur in the workplace in Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens. They have duties to train employees, store chemicals, and keep the workplace safe.
If you have burn injuries, our lawyers can determine who was negligent and help you collect damages the laws allow.
If a Defective Product Causes Injuries, the Manufacturer Might Be Liable for Your Injuries
When a product is defective and causes harm to a consumer, the manufacturer, distributor, and/or seller might be liable for the injuries. Each party has a duty to the public. The duty includes making and selling products that meet customers’ reasonable expectations. Liability that results from placing a defective product into the market is called “product liability.”
Product liability law is a complicated area. Proving your claim requires a great deal of investigation and often relies on the testimony and reports of experts. The New York personal injury lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP, have all the resources and experience you need to help collect damages for your injuries from a defective product.
Dangerous Drugs: Holding Drug Companies Liable
Drugs don’t always work as advertised. They might not treat the problem for which they are prescribed. Worse than that, they can cause unexpected side effects. These side effects can be severe and dangerous. If prescription drugs have injured you, consider these questions –
- Did the FDA approve the drug?
- Did the doctor prescribe it for “off label” purposes or in unapproved amounts?
- Did you take the drug as directed, and it caused an unexpected side effect?
- Did you receive warnings about the danger of the drug?
- Did the manufacturer conduct trials of the drug?
If you received serious injuries after taking a drug prescribed by your doctor, you might be able to hold the drug manufacturer liable. Valsartan, Xarelto, and Belviq are some controversial drugs that may result in manufacturer liability. Call our personal injury lawyers to find out if you have a dangerous drug claim.
Dangerous Medical Devices Injure New Yorkers
Medical devices must be tested before they get placed into the market. The devices must work as promised. The risks of using the device must be shared. Patients and doctors need to know the risks of using a medical device so they can make informed decisions about their treatment.
As we all know, medical devices often fail to perform as expected. They might be dangerous or just not do what they should. Sometimes, the FDA will recall a dangerous medical device. The manufacturer of a dangerous medical device might voluntarily recall the product. Even without a recall, manufacturers must notify patients when dangers exist.
Dangerous medical devices often result in legal action, especially after a recall. Some of the dangerous medical devices involved in litigation include hernia mesh and IUDs.
