Types of Personal Injury Cases our Queens Attorneys Handle
At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool, we are not limited to specific
types of personal injury fields; however, the following are some examples
of the types of cases we handle:
Medical Malpractice Medical professionals are held to a practical standard that they must
achieve when providing care to their patients. All medical professionals
are expected to provide the same standard of care that another reasonable
professional in their field and situation would provide. Our firm assists
the patients that have been severely injured by the neglect of any medical
professional or medical institution.
Vehicle Accidents Our firm handles all types of vehicle accident cases. The cases we handle
include but are not limited to truck, car, bus, taxi and motorcycle accidents.
We have fought for the rights of individuals that have been hurt in a
vehicle accident for over 50 years.
Premises Liability We also protect the rights of individuals who were injured or have died
on public or private property. Business owners, landlords, and other property
owners are responsible for maintaining a safe and secure environment for
any visitors on their property. Some examples of premises liability cases
we handle are slip and falls, swimming pool injuries, severe injuries
or death resulting from defective handrails, escalators, or elevators.
Construction Accidents Construction employees are protected by New York's Labor Laws. According
to Labor Law 240(1), if the statute is violated, liability is imposed
upon the owner, general contractor, and their agent, regardless of the
defendant’s control or lack of control over the work. This is commonly
referred to absolute liability. According to Labor Law 242(6), the owner/general
contractor has a non-delegable duty to their workers to ensure that all
necessary precautions have been established in order to minimize risk
of any gravity-related injuries. Even if your circumstances do not violate
these labor laws, you may still have a general negligence personal injury lawsuit.
Wrongful Death There are hundreds of thousands of people that die every year due to unintentional
accidents. New York State law regarding suing for wrongful death is very
different than most states. In New York, the families of deceased relatives
cannot sue for emotional distress that has been caused by the sudden passing
of their loved one. The only exception to this rule is if the decedent’s
family witnessed or was in the immediate area of the scene of the accident
where their family member was killed. Families of the deceased can receive
compensation for any incurred medical bills, funeral expenses, and the
pain and suffering that their deceased loved-one experienced immediately
prior to their death.
Birth Injuries We have also represented families whose newborn has suffered an injury
during the birthing process. These cases include children that were born
with cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, or any other sort of brain damage
due to the negligence of the doctor or midwife that acted negligently
during the delivery.
Being injured or falsely arrested by the police can be a very traumatic
experience. The police are entrusted with a very important and dangerous
job of protecting the community. However, in the event that an officer
crosses their legal boundary and violates your civil rights, then it is
paramount that you seek legal representation.
