Recently 3 of our attorneys, Ben Rubinowitz, Anthony Gair and Howard Hershenhorn have been selected by Forbes as the "Best Personal Injury Lawyers in New York City". We are the only injury law firm in New York City that has as many attorneys listed in this prestigious and reliable list of the top 15 injury attorneys in NYC.
If you have been injured as the result of the negligence of another person or entity, liability and the damages are the two main bases to establish if you have a case. In order to file a personal injury claim in New York, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant is liable for the injuries and if so what are the nature and the extent of the damages. If these two elements can be proven you may have a case and we recommend you contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss it.
While every case is different, the most common damages claimed in a New York personal injury lawsuit are the pain and suffering endured as a result of the injury, the loss of wages related to the injury and medical expenses (current and future).
Pain and suffering are non-economic damages sustained by the negligence of the defendant. Under New York Law the amount that can be recovered for pain and suffering varies greatly from case to case. If your case is settled out of court, your attorney will negotiate with the defendant the amount of the compensation for pain and suffering. The value of your case depends on many factors including the liability of the negligent defendant, the severity and permanency of your injury and the loss of income as a result of the injury. In evaluating your case your attorney will compare monetary awards in similar cases. If your case goes to trial, the jury will decide what amount will be awarded for pain and suffering. Your attorney will present expert testimony by among others, physicians, economists and life care planners. Each case is of course different and the experts retained by your attorney will depend on the facts of the particular case.
Throughout the years, our personal injury attorneys have successfully represented individuals and families in New York who suffered injury by the negligence or recklessness of others and we understand how devastating and overwhelming it can be to deal with mounting costs and suffering caused by serious personal injury. We retain the very best experts including accident reconstructionists, biomechanical engineers, medical doctors, forensic pathologists, economists and other experts from the various disciplines involved in the case because every personal injury case requires the plaintiff to prove both liability and damages. Each case has its own set of associated costs, including pain and suffering, lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs and these must be clearly demonstrated. Our trial lawyers will document and preserve any evidence necessary to prove your case and meticulously prepare your case for trial.
In August 2020, a judge upheld a personal injury verdict of almost $60 million that our attorneys obtained for a young man who suffered devastating injuries during a botched chemistry demonstration at a NYC High School. The verdict was also the #1 School Injury verdict in NY State in 2019. The victim was a 16 year old boy who was burned alive and spent months in hospitals undergoing very painful treatments. Sadly, he will never fully recover and will have to deal with physical and emotional pain and suffering during the rest of his life.
In December 2018, our NY injury attorneys obtained an $85 million verdict for a pedestrian who suffered catastrophic injury after being hit by a tour bus in Manhattan. This verdict is the highest verdict awarded by a jury in New York State and the 25th highest in the US in 2018. The victim was awarded by the Manhattan Supreme Court jury $45 million for past pain and suffering and $40 million for future pain and suffering. The 54 year old pedestrian was in the crosswalk with the light in his favor when a red double decker sightseeing bus tour struck him and seriously injured him. He spent 78 days in the hospital and sustained 11 operations. The victim is now able to walk with a brace but will sustain constant pain for the rest of his life.
A few month earlier, in September 2018, our personal injury lawyers obtained $27.5 million sex abuse settlement paid by the Brooklyn Diocese. This is one of the highest settlement paid in the country by the catholic church for clergy abuse and sexual abuse.
In 2017, our accident attorneys obtained a $71 million verdict for a client who suffered a spinal injury in a car accident and a 41.5 million verdict for a man who was fatally struck by a truck. These verdicts were the second and third highest personal injury verdicts obtained in the entire State of New York in 2017.

Personal injury law refers to the field of law that deals with accidental injuries, defective products, car crashes, medical malpractice, and all of the damages and insurance claims that go along with them. Personal injury lawyers in New York City often handle cases on behalf of pedestrians hit by cars, victims of surgical errors, injured construction workers, and so many others.
If you or a loved one was injured, our NYC personal injury lawyers at The Carrion Law Firm may be able to take your case, investigate what happened, and present evidence and arguments in court to get you the compensation you need. Our attorneys have experience handling all sorts of injury cases, and we are not afraid to bring cases against property owners, drivers, doctors, or even big businesses to fight to get you the compensation you need for your injuries.
If you were injured, you might be left with medical bills, you may be stuck out of work, and you may be dealing with extensive pain and suffering from your injuries. This situation can feel hopeless, but there may be chances to get the bills covered and to fight for other compensation for your injuries. This can help you get back on your feet and make up for the economic stress you face after an injury.
After you get the treatment you need, consider calling a lawyer very early on. You may be able to take pictures at the scene of the accident, documenting where and when the accident happened, what the conditions were like, and what your injuries looked like. This will be helpful evidence, but if you need immediate medical care and end up laid up in the hospital, you will need someone else to gather evidence for you.
Our NYC personal injury lawyers can gather evidence, potentially even security camera footage and witness statements, to help build your case. There are also so many other benefits. We can coordinate your care and help keep track of all expenses related to the accident. We can also help you put together logs and journals to document your recovery so you can tell the judge and jury about how the injuries affected you.
It is also important that you have your lawyer present when you talk to the at-fault party, their lawyer, or any insurance company. These parties might try to offer you settlements that are far too low to cover your needs, but the offer may still be hard to say no to. Your NYC personal injury lawyer can help you know what your case is really worth and avoid low settlements.
There are many different types of personal injury lawsuits. The process for recovering monetary damages in your case can vary depending on the type of accident you suffered. However, in order for your case to succeed, you must establish each of the following elements:
Car accidents are an extremely common cause of personal injury in NYC. When motorists act carelessly and recklessly behind the wheel, harmful collisions can occur. There are many different forms of negligent behavior that lead to car accidents. Our lawyers can help hold careless drivers liable for crashes they cause.
Slip and fall accidents are another common cause of personal injuries in NYC. Property owners are supposed to maintain their premises for the safety of their visitors. When owners do not provide proper upkeep and maintenance for their properties, serious slip and fall accidents can occur. Victims of such accidents may be entitled to multiple forms of monetary damages. 041b061a72
