Personal Injury Lawyer NYC: Advocating For Clients’ Rights, Obtaining Maximum Compensation
A serious personal injury will bring many problems and many questions. Am I going to get better? Will I be able to work again? Will I need medical care for the rest of my life? How am I going to pay for this?
An experienced personal injury lawyer will be absolutely critical in answering these questions and helping you get the compensation you will need going forward for your lost income and earning capacity, pain and suffering and other damages.
More Than 50 Years Of Service
The attorneys of Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., have served people across New York City and beyond for more than 50 years. Our lawyers have successfully represented thousands of clients, obtaining more than $1 billion in compensation since 1965. We are ready to help people who have suffered all types of disabling injuries, including the following:
Brain injuries: A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can alter your loved one’s life in many ways. Some of these changes are obvious, while other changes are not always immediately visible. If your loved one has suffered a disabling brain injury due to another’s negligence, our lawyers have the experience and resolve to recover all compensation available under the law.
Spinal cord injuries: An accident that causes severe trauma to the spinal cord can lead to partial or total paralysis. While such an injury will place significant limits on what you are able to do, a successful personal injury suit can help you get the money you need to support yourself and live your life on the best possible terms.
Burn injuries: Nothing in the world is more painful than a severe burn. The burns themselves are excruciating, and treatment of burn injuries can be equally painful. If you or someone you love has been severely burned in an accident, our accident injury lawyers will work to hold all liable parties accountable for your damages.
Back and neck injuries: Injuries to the neck or back can cause pain, numbness and a host of other problems. These problems can keep you from working and interfere with enjoying what life has to offer. Whether your injuries occurred on a construction site, in an automobile accident or in some other type of accident, our attorneys know how to investigate, negotiate and litigate these types of cases.
Fracture and joint injuries: Broken bones, torn ligaments or tendons or other injuries can take months or longer to heal. Even after these injuries have healed to the fullest possible extent, you may still be limited in your daily activities. You may be subject to arthritis, which can limit you even further. If you have broken a bone or suffered a joint injury due to someone’s negligence, our law firm will look closely at your injuries and take appropriate action.
Day care injuries, assaults and abuse: Day care facilities and their employees have a responsibility to provide the highest level of care to our children and to take the necessary steps to ensure their safety. When they fail in that responsibility and your children suffer injuries as a result, you have the right to seek full compensation for your child’s medical care and pain and suffering.
Wrongful death: Our law firm also represents surviving family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident and wish to file a wrongful death claim. We prepare every case thoroughly, tirelessly investigating all issues in order to present a compelling claim at trial. Our readiness and willingness to go to trial also allow us to negotiate from strength, which frequently results in favorable settlements for our clients.

What is Your New York Personal Injury Lawsuit Worth?
At this stage, it’s impossible to say exactly what your New York personal injury case is going to be worth.
Why? Well, it all comes down to your unique experiences, your injury, and the impact that your injury is having on your life. What’s more, we need to think about the impact your injury could have on your life into the future.
Your an individual, and that’s how we’ll handle your case. Legal representation that’s unique to you – not a cookie-cutter approach that some law firms take with every client. As a result, we can’t predict what your case will be worth – but we can tell you a little more about the kinds of damages we’ll typically look at exploring:
What Kinds Of Damages Could You Receive Compensation For?
An important part of personal injury litigation involves documenting the damages that have come as a result of your personal injury. The term “damages” is legal phrase – but it really means the consequences of the injury that you’ve suffered.
For instance, if you’ve been forced to take time off work to recover from your injury, the lost wages would make up part of the “economic damages” you’ve suffered. If you’ve suffered pain and discomfort as a result of your injury, this would make up part of any “non-economic” damages you’ve suffered.
Economic damages can usually be quantified with paperwork – such as receipts, invoices, pay stubs, and letters from employers. Some examples include:
Costs of future support or rehabilitation
Potential missed future opportunities
The costs of damage property
Funeral and burial expenses (when someone has tragically lost their life)
Non-economic damages are those that cannot be quantified with receipts or paperwork. They tend to include things like:
The injury itself
Pain and suffering
The loss of companionship
On-going physical impairment
The loss of the enjoyment of life
Now you have a better idea of the kinds of damages that can go towards a financial compensation claim, you might be able to see factors that have impacted your life. Don’t worry though – we won’t expect you to list these yourself. Our experienced personal injury lawyers will help you understand how these factors may impact your life – both now, and into the future.
Should You Sue If You’ve Been Injured?
We’re often asked by potential clients if they’re doing the right thing by pursuing a personal injury claim. When claims involve taking on a large corporation or insurance company, the answer usually isn’t difficult to decide upon – but what about when you pursue a claim against a smaller business or individual?
In cases like these, we encourage people to think about their life and – to some dgree – protecting other people. The reality of the world we live in means no one else is going to step in to help if their negligence has left you injured. Yours and your families future could take a very different path if you don’t stand up and fight for what is rightfully yours.
Equally, it’s important to remember that people don’t learn if they’re not held to account for their actions. If someone gets off lightly after their actions have hurt you – they could go on to do the very same thing the next day – and the next person might face even great injuries of suffering.
We can fix your injuries – but we can fight to make sure your finances aren’t left damaged. We can also make sure that justice is served – so other people don’t have to go through the pain and suffering you have.
