Parker Waichman LLP serving clients in New York
Our experienced and respected New York personal injury lawyers handle a broad range of injury claims in the five New York Boroughs (Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island), as well as Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Westchester and Rockland Counties. Some of the matters we handle out of the New York offices include:
Car/Truck Accidents: When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident caused by a distracted, intoxicated or otherwise negligent driver, the result can be permanent disabling injuries impacting the ability to work and support their family. Our law firm investiges the facts, reviews law enforcement accident reports, secures available video and works with experts to pursue the fullest recovery for our clients.
Zadroga/9-11: Our law firm provides tenacious advocacy for first responders and other affected by the terrorist attacks in New York City, near Indian Lake and Shanksville, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon, Washington, D.C. on 9/11/2001 and those who experienced severe health problems because of their efforts and/or exposure to the toxic dust from the World Trade Center September 11 attacks.
New York Labor Law Section 200/240/241: These sections of the New York labor law provide protection to workers in the construction trades who are injured in, for example, accidents from falls from an elevation or after a falling object strikes them. This law (also known as the "Scaffold Law") allows injured workers to pursue claims again project owners, general contractors, building owners, project managers and other parties whose lack of due care causes injury. Construction sites constitute rapidly changing environments, so our seasoned New York construction accident lawyers are diligent about conducting prompt investigations and identifying all potentially responsible parties.
Nursing Home Neglect: When families entrust a nursing home with the care of their elderly loved one, they expect the facility to properly and promptly attend to their needs and provide a safe environment. Unfortunately, physical abuse and/or neglect by understaffed nursing homes are far too common. Our nursing home injury lawyers are defenders of the elderly and will pursue legal remedies to obtain financial compensation for victims of nursing home neglect while holding nursing homes responsible. Our New York nursing home injury lawyers, with our nursing home medical experts, will obtain and analyze facility records and safety inspection reports to expose substandard care or abuse at the facility.
General Negligence: Whether you are, a senior injured in a fall on a wet grocery store floor or the parent of a child attacked by a dog, the New York personal injury lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP have the expertise, experience, and tenacity to pursue the fullest recover for injuries caused by careless and inattentive individuals, businesses, and public entities.
When you are injured by the negligent or reckless conduct of another individual, company, or government entity, the process of pursuing financial compensation can be challenging. At Parker Waichman LLP, our Long Island personal injury lawyers know that insurance companies often try to entice injury victims into accepting lowball settlements, giving recorded statements, executing a general waiver of liability, or signing a consent to release of information. Our law firm anticipates such tactics and protects our clients and their families from the sharp practices often employed by insurance companies to avoid or mitigate payouts to injured people with legitimate injury claims.
We handle personal injury claims in Nassau and Suffolk counties of New York including motor vehicle/auto/car accidents, dog bites, slip and falls, construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and more. Our Long Island office services both Nassau and Suffolk Counties with a special focus on the following types of cases:
Auto Collisions & Trucking Accidents: When trucking companies establish unrealistic schedules or ignore trucking safety regulations, collisions between 40-ton fully loaded tractor-trailers and 3,000-pound passenger cars can cause permanent and devastating personal injuries. Trucking litigation is not just litigation of a traffic accident with a large vehicle. Our Long Island trucking accident lawyers have extensive knowledge of trucking regulations and practices, tactics used by the trucking industry to evade financial responsibility, and a plethora of trucking industry experts. Our attorneys are also familiar with the litigation strategies used by insurance companies of negligent motorists who disregard the right of way rules, run stop signs, text and drive, operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated, or engage in other forms of negligent driving.
Nursing Home Abuse/Negligence: The relatively large number of cases involving nursing home negligence and abuse in recent years stems from systemic understaffing of the facilities coupled with the inability of some elderly residents to alert family member to the acts of abuse or neglect. Our Long Island nursing home attorneys represent victims of rape, battery, unjustified chemical or physical restraint, and other acts of physical abuse, as well as victims of chronic neglect. Whether your elderly loved one is not provided with proper care, hydration, nutrition, or medication, nursing home abuse victims can seek compensation for injuries caused by improper staffing levels or inadequately trained, screened or supervised employees.
Labor Law Section 200/240/241: This section of the New York labor law provides protection to workers in the construction trades who are injured in falls or by a falling object. This law (also known as the "Scaffold Law") allows injured workers to pursue claims again project owners, general contractors, building owners, project managers and other parties whose lack of due care causes injury. Construction sites constitute rapidly changing environments with subcontractors and workers coming and going. Our experienced construction accident lawyers recognize the importance of promptly investigating accidents often with the assistance of industry experts. While some people mistakenly believe that this provision provides for liability without fault, our law firm understands the importance of thorough investigation to establish negligence.
When you suffer serious injury because of a careless or distracted driver, the failure of nursing home staff to provide adequate nutrition, or unsafe scaffolding on a construction project, you can suffer catastrophic injuries. Our New Jersey personal injury lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP have received a 9.8 Superb rating from AVVO and earned over a billion dollars for our clients. We also have received the highest peer view ratings from respected publications like Martindale-Hubbell and Best Lawyers.
Our law firm handles general negligence claims involving serious injuries caused by unreasonably unsafe conduct. Some specific types of actions we handle in our New Jersey office include:
Motor Vehicle Accidents: If you have been involved in an auto accident caused by a driver who runs a red light, speeds, texts, or otherwise engages in unsafe practices, our New Jersey personal injury lawyers have decades of experience. We also have a well-established network of experts in accident reconstruction, vehicle safety, medical specialties, vocational counseling, and more. We work closely with experts to investigate your accident, so we can navigate the traps often set by insurance companies to minimize settlements or verdicts. Our New Jersey trucking accident lawyer also have extensive knowledge or state and federal trucking regulations, as well as strategies used by the trucking industry to alter or destroy evidence.
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect: When you learn that your elderly parent, grandparent, or other loved one is the victim of neglect or abuse, the news can be devastating. Many nursing homes put profits above the quality of care. Neglect of nursing home residents can result in potentially fatal infections from untreated bedsores, broken bones suffered in falls, bed entrapment accidents, and more. Our New Jersey nursing home lawyers work with experts and analyze internal nursing home documents, government inspections reports, records related to other complaints, and other evidence to obtain justice and financial compensation for abused and neglected residents.
Medical Malpractice: Our New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys are among the shrinking number of lawyers that handle negligence claims against doctors, medical specialists, nurses, hospitals, and other healthcare providers. Successful litigation of a medical malpractice claim requires careful analysis by a medical expert. Malpractice carriers fight these cases tenaciously, so you need a law firm that has the financial resources and track record to aggressively litigate lawsuits involving medical negligence.

Our Florida personal injury attorneys regularly represent clients in Fort Myers, Cape Cod, Naples, Bonita Springs, Marco Island and the surrounding vicinity. Some of the personal injury claims we handle most frequently in addition to the general negligence matters listed above include:
Truck & Car Accidents: If you are T-boned by a driver who runs a red light or rear-ended by a motorist distracted by a cell phone, you might suffer severe injuries that lead to spiraling medical bills and prolonged periods of disability. Because we have taken on insurance companies and their insured in hundreds upon hundreds of auto accident claims, we have the benefit of an established network of experts, a reputation for success taking cases to trial, and a thorough understanding of insurance industry tactics. If you are injured by a fatigued tractor-trailer driver and the indifference of a commercial carrier, we also bring comprehensive knowledge of trucking industry laws, regulations, and customary practices. We use this background and expertise to tirelessly pursue the fullest settlement or judgment for our clients.
Medical Malpractice: Mistakes by a physician, nurse, or another medical provider can cause catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. Our Florida medical malpractice attorneys work with medical specialists to analyze the diagnostic and treatment procedures implemented by health care providers and to identify departures from the "acceptable standard of care." Our decades of experience handling these highly complex injury cases allows us to provide knowledge of complex litigation, familiarity with hospital and medical procedures, access to experts in many medical specialties, and the resources and tenacity to take cases to trial.
Mistreatment in Nursing Homes: Many families are appalled to discover their elderly loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home. Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, or financial. Neglect can involve isolation, failure to provide nutrition/hydration, improperly treated or ignored medical problems, lack of supervision and other forms of neglect. Our law firm has taken on cases of abuse and neglect against large nursing home chains that put profits above resident care. We have achieved results for clients through extensive investigation, an understanding of nursing home practices and regulations, and reliance on industry experts. We pursue such cases with passion and fervor to protect vulnerable seniors.
