Kneed injury lawyers

Possible Case Values for Clients Who May Require Arthroscopic Knee Surgery When our firm first meets with new clients, our lawyers always explain that it can be very difficult to provide early estimates regarding a case’s settlement value since so much depends on each case’s unique facts. Furthermore, the main factors that can help us determine the possible range of recovery include whether your injuries are permanent, extensive and require surgery.

Falling Debris Accidents Pose Serious Threat to NYC Pedestrian Safety For decades, most New York City pedestrians have assumed that being hit by a vehicle while crossing the street was the biggest danger they faced. Unfortunately, the December 2019 death of New York City architect Erica L. Tishman put everyone on notice that falling building debris can suddenly take the life of any pedestrian.

NYC Commercial Truck Accidents: FAQs, Definitions and Statutes

truck car accident - Frekhtman & Associates Attorneys

Without a doubt, the most dangerous type of vehicle to collide with in an accident is a large commercial truck. Even the smaller ones often weigh far more than the average passenger car that weighs between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds. As might be expected, injured passengers of other vehicles (as well as cyclists, pedestrians and motorcycle riders) often die of their injuries. People who manage to survive accidents with commercial trucks are often left paralyzed – or suffering from traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries – or a vast array of other medical problems. While many people improve greatly...

At least five cyclists lost their lives on New York City streets during July of 2019.  Only 10 such deaths were recorded in all of 2018. Although New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero program seemed to be helping to decrease cyclist and pedestrian accidents during recent years, that program is no longer fully capable of stemming the tide of the current series of major injuries and deaths. Here’s a...
