Personal Injury

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates represents individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed in an accident that was a result of the negligence of someone else. Victims of accidents who experience serious injuries endure not just physical pain, but also suffer emotionally and financially. Recovery from a serious injury requires treatment and time. Such treatment leads to substantial medical bills while recovery time means loss of work and income. Not only is the injured victim affected, but the entire family is affected as well.

If you were injured in an accident due to the negligence of another person, under New York law you may be able to recover compensation from the person responsible for the accident. While car accidents are one of the most common types of accidents caused by negligence, slip and fall, bicycle construction, and even dog bites are other types of accidents that are caused by negligence. Furthermore, victims are also injured by defective products and through mistakes made by doctors and other healthcare professionals. Through a personal injury lawsuit there are a variety of types of damages that may be available to you based on the losses you suffered. Moreover, if a family member died due to someone's negligent actions, you may be able to pursue damages through a wrongful death lawsuit.
