New York Zadroga Act 9/11 Terrorist Attack Lawyers
If you or a loved one participated in the rescue efforts after the World Trade Center towers fell or were in the immediate area due to employment, residence or other reasons, you might be entitled to compensation for injuries including chronic bronchitis, lung disease, COPD, sleep apnea, chronic cough syndrome, asthma, GERD, and sinusitis. The Zadroga Act also covers dozens of forms of cancer linked to the toxic dust cloud at Ground Zero.
Our New York Zadroga Act attorneys seek compensation for recovery, cleanup, and rescue workers. They can also aid those who lived and worked in New York City, near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon in the months after the attacks who were injured because of exposure to toxic substances during the 9/11 catastrophe. Our New York personal injury lawyers are committed to guiding afflicted workers through the byzantine maze of documents, evidence, and paperwork necessary to establish a valid claim and maximize the amount of our clients’ recovery from the Victim Compensation Fund. At Parker Waichman, we passionately advocate for heroic individuals who have developed serious medical conditions after laboring side by side and sifting through the debris at Ground Zero.
Car Accident Lawyers
When motorists climb behind the wheel while intoxicated or a tractor-trailer operator engages in the operation of an 80,000 pound fully loaded tractor-trailer while fatigued, the consequences can be permanent debilitating injuries. When you consult with an experienced car accident lawyer in NYC at our firm, crash victims can rest assured that we’ll be both understanding of your struggle and highly knowledgeable.

Trucking Accident Lawyers
A good New York truck accident lawyer can skillfully deal with a unique aspect of trucking litigation that often makes these cases more complicated: Many trucking companies have rapid-response investigation teams that can be dispatched to an accident site within minutes of a crash. These investigators gather evidence and begin developing a defense strategy in the immediate aftermath of a crash, which can give them an advantage when you try to pursue a claim for compensation.
Pursuing a trucking accident case requires swift action on the part of your truck accident attorney in NYC, including:
- Taking action to prevent big-rig damage from being repaired because it can interfere with crash reconstruction analysis
- Analyzing physical evidence, DOT accident investigation reports, truck driver personnel records, commercial carrier vehicle maintenance records, and other evidence
- Sending spoliation letters or obtaining restraining orders to prevent the loss of big-rig data recorder (“black box”) information
- Obtaining and reviewing fuel and lodging records, GPS data, tire purchase orders, and similar documents to expose misrepresentations in driver log books intended to monitor hours of service (HOS) and driver fatigue
Working with an experienced New York truck accident attorney can help to balance the scales of justice after these devastating accidents, ensuring that you can build the strongest case possible.

Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in the country, particularly in a dense city like New York. As New York City construction accidents increase, there’s also been a decrease in work site inspections. The lack of inspections and rise in accidents indicate that work sites aren’t following proper safety standards.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
The changing demographics in the U.S. mean that a growing number of families will be faced with the difficult decision to place their loved one in a nursing home, but sadly, many of these facilities do not offer adequate care to their residents. Around 10 percent of seniors age 60 and older have been the victim of elder abuse, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse, which amounts to five million incidents of elder abuse each year. Neglect of residents in nursing homes is just as prevalent. If you or a loved one have been the victim of abuse or neglect at one of these facilities, a New York nursing home attorney from our firm can help you to seek justice.
Abuse and neglect in New York nursing homes often results from the facilities operating at insufficient staffing levels, so the facility has too few or inadequately trained staff to provide appropriate care for nursing home residents. Sometimes, nursing homes and their staff avoid detection over prolonged periods of systematic abuse and neglect because elderly victims might be limited in their ability to understand or communicate about their mistreatment. If you or a loved one have been affected by nursing home abuse or negligence, contact us to work with a New York nursing home attorney today.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional’s negligence causes harm to a patient. A New York medical malpractice lawyer can help you bring medical professionals to justice in cases of:

- Lack of informed consent
- Improper treatment
If medical negligence and malpractice have affected you or a loved one, you need the assistance of top medical malpractice lawyers. NYC victims can count on the team at Parker Waichman to pursue the maximum settlement to help them recover from malpractice damages.
