Some Injuries Change Lives Forever
A catastrophic injury suffered in an accident on or off the job can change or end a life in a matter of moments. If you or a loved one has sustained a life-altering or fatal injury, you have a very important decision to make. The law firm you hire must have lawyers with the ability to help you recover all of the benefits and compensation you are entitled to under the law. In these complex, aggressively defended cases, your lawyer’s experience, skill and dedication can have a major impact on your life going forward.
With over two centuries of combined legal experience, we at Vishnick McGovern Milizio LLP offer strategic legal counsel and advocacy with attentive, compassionate client service.
Working To Maximize Recovery In Catastrophic Injury Cases
Our attorneys have seen the financial and emotional hardships suffered by families affected by these crises and will explore every avenue that could result in you receiving maximum benefits to aid in your recovery. Workers’ compensation benefits are an important part of this equation. In many instances, however, we may be able to file a personal injury claim as well. If someone other than your employer caused your injuries, you can bring a personal injury case, also known as a third-party claim, against him or her.
For example, if you were injured in a car accident while in the course of your job duties, we can bring a case against the negligent driver for your injuries. If you were injured by a defective product, our law firm can bring a claim against the manufacturer of the product.
New York has unique labor laws that give extra legal protections to construction workers who work on ladders, scaffolds or from other heights. We understand these laws and are prepared to take action if you or someone you love has sustained any type of catastrophic injury such as:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck or back injury
Hardworking people deserve hardworking lawyers. Our lawyers are fully prepared to assist you through every phase of the legal process and will not rest until we have taken all appropriate measures to help.
