Personal Injury

Personal injury law is a specialized area of law that concerns claims involving physical or psychological injury. Cases that fall under this category may include claims of injuries sustained from motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, unsafe premises, construction accidents, fall down accidents, asbestos or other toxic contamination, and other accident types.

The New York personal injury lawyers at Calano & Culhane, LLP provide legal representation for victims of injuries caused by negligent or wrongful actions of another person or entity. Our attorneys specialize in this legal field and help injured victims obtain legal compensation for damages incurred as a result of what are deemed civil wrongs under the law. Damages may be for medical expenses (present and future), lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other items that warrant legal compensation. In the event that an injury is fatal, a wrongful death action may also be brought on behalf of the victim. Damages in these cases may also include costs for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, punitive damages, and other compensation.

A large percentage of personal injury cases are settled out of court. However, when seeking the service of a qualified personal injury attorney, it is recommended to research their background and success rate in settlements and negotiations as well as trials. There are many instances where a defendant may stand their ground and refuse to offer a just settlement, regardless of their culpability and trial experience is therefore vital.

We will provide you with a fair and prompt appraisal of your case and lay out for you the legal plan we would employ to obtain a just result on your behalf.
