Determined Melville Lawyer Seeks Justice for the Injured
Proven attorney aggressively represents clients in personal injury matters
Overcoming the financial, physical and emotional aftereffects of a serious accident might require taking legal action against the at-fault party. At Themis Law Group, LLC in Melville, I represent accident victims throughout New York, New Jersey and California and am committed to helping the injured get the financial recovery they deserve. With decades of legal experience, I am skilled at producing positive results and demonstrating the full extent of the damages you suffered. Whether you were hit by a drunk driver, fell on a messy supermarket floor or saw your child injured by improper obstetric procedure, I will thoroughly review your case and implement a forceful legal strategy to pursue your claim.
Who is responsible for your auto accident injuries?
New York and New Jersey’s no-fault auto insurance laws directly impact the compensation you can seek following a car accident. If you are hurt in a crash, your insurance provider is the first place you must look for compensation, regardless of who was at fault. If damages exceed policy limits, you may be able to sue the other driver as long as the severity and type of injury meets certain legal requirements. California, on the other hand, does not subscribe to a no-fault policy, so you would not have to pursue an initial claim with your own insurance before pursuing the responsible party.
Auto accident cases are frequently complex, and I will help you understand what type of compensation is feasible.
Are businesses required to keep the premises safe from slip and falls?
Property owners have a duty to repair or warn of hazards that could injure guests and, in some cases, must perform regular inspections to identify risks. For example, letting ice accumulate on a sidewalk or allowing liquid to remain on a heavily-used floor can make a company liable if a customer is subsequently hurt. Defendants should be held accountable if they allow unsafe conditions to exist, and I won’t let you be tricked or bullied into accepting an unfair settlement.
What qualifies as medical malpractice?
Doctors and other healthcare workers must follow professional standards of care when treating patients. Failure to perform proper tests, prescribing the wrong medication or misdiagnosing a condition are examples of negligent acts that could qualify as medical malpractice. I know how to construct convincing medical malpractice claims and will gather the necessary medical expert and factual evidence to support your case.
What are common types of birth injuries?
Improper or negligent treatment during childbirth can cause trauma and irreparable consequences for the child. The following are examples of birth injuries commonly associated with medical malpractice:
- Cerebral palsy
- Facial paralysis
- Brain damage
- Fractured collarbones
- Spinal cord injuries
You and your infant should receive quality care during childbirth, and if errors were made, I will help you pursue appropriate damages.
What can you recover in a wrongful death case?
When a person dies due to someone else’s negligence or intentional actions, damages may be available through a wrongful death claim. Damages are the losses attributed to a person’s death and may include:
- Reasonable funeral expenses
- Final medical expenses
- Income the decedent would have been expected to earn
- Lost services and support that the decedent provided
Your loved one can never be replaced, but I will seek to hold the responsible party accountable so that you achieve a measure of relief.
