Personal Injury Law Firm New York

Each time you leave your home and head out the door in New York, you are trusting that all other New Yorkers around you will take the proper precautions to ensure that they provide you with a duty of care to keep you safe from harm by their own negligence or recklessness. Whether you are riding the subway, driving on the highways, or engaging in any other normal parts of life, you are in an unspoken contract with all those around you to act appropriately to avoid accidents and injuries. While in nearly all cases every day we are able to go about our business without being involved in accidents, there are too many examples across New York City and the greater state of New York every day where people suffer catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. When someone is injured or killed due to an avoidable accident caused by someone else’s recklessness, negligence, or even malice, the victims are able to take legal action for their damages.

In many accidents, it may seem that the situation is straightforward and that the defendant is clearly responsible for the injuries, and therefore required to pay fair damages to the victim. However, whether represented by legal professionals or insurance companies, the reality is that victims of personal injuries must put up a fight to get the money that they truly deserve.

After a NY personal injury, the personal injury attorneys at our law firm understand that a victim can be overwhelmed by all of the changes in their life, all while needing to file a personal injury claim with an insurance company, or needing to learn about how to work towards getting the money that they deserve directly from the defendant. Regardless, this stress can have a serious negative impact on their recovery process, and the insurance company understands how distracted a victim is at this time. This is why they work so aggressively to settle personal injury claims as soon as possible – before the victim realizes that they have more options and rights than they first realized.

Finding the right personal injury lawyers in New York City can feel just as overwhelming as filing a personal injury claim, which is why we offer a free consultation for personal injury and accident victims of all kinds. During our consultation, we will be able to discuss the specifics of your situation, offer some legal advice about how to move forward, and generally give you a sense of the quality and level of support that you will get when you are a valued client of Isaacson, Schiowitz & Korson, LLP.

Common Personal Injury Types

The following are just a few of the many injuries that people suffer from following personal injuries but keep in mind that no two accidents are alike. Whether or not you see your own injuries mentioned below, contact our law firm as soon as possible to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer about your situation and learn more about how we can help you move forward to get the compensation that you rightfully deserve.

Whiplash is an extremely common type of injury in car accidents that happens when a passenger’s head is snapped forward, down, and then back in a rapid “S” motion that does extensive damage to the soft tissues. This injury causes a stiff neck, headaches, trouble sleeping, limited mobility, and more.

Bruising is extremely common after any impact injury, and is caused by damage to the capillaries and surficial blood vessels. The pooling blood leaves the area tender and can range in colors from yellow to blue to black and even green. In many cases, bruising will heal itself; however, it may also be an indication of more serious injuries and should always be examined by a doctor.

A bone fractures or breaks when it experiences an impact that stresses it beyond its strength and the fibers separate. Depending on the nature of the impact and the severity of the fracture, recovery may simply require a splint, or could require extensive surgery to ensure that the victim makes a full recovery. Either way, these injuries must be looked at closely by a medical professional.

Traumatic brain injuries such as concussions happen when the head experiences an impact and the brain is rattled around inside the skull, doing damage to the soft exterior of the brain and causing a range of neurological issues. If left untreated, concussions can have serious, long-term, and even fatal impacts on a victim, which is why these injuries must be examined and treated by a medical professional immediately to ensure that you have the best chance of making a recovery.

Many different types of accidents cause lacerations that can range from things like road rash in bicycle and motorcycle accidents to cuts from defective products, gashes from a slip and fall, and more. Regardless of how you received the laceration, it is important that you see a doctor immediately to ensure that the wound is properly treated, the bleeding is stopped, and you can make a recovery without additional issues like infection or avoidable scarring.

Internal bleeding can happen from a number of personal injury accidents, including medical malpractice issues, car accidents, and more. After surgery or other procedure, victims of medical malpractice may notice that they have blood in their stool or urine, loss of blood pressure, dizziness, and other serious symptoms that may ultimately be the result of a serious error. However your internal bleeding was caused, it is essential to see a doctor immediately to create a plan for recovery.

There are all sorts of incidents that can lead to a personal injury claim or lawsuit, and no two are alike. If you have been seriously injured and someone else caused the accident that caused your injuries, then you may be able to initiate a personal injury case in order to collect compensation for a range of things, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. The following are just a few of the many personal injury law areas that we cover – whether or not you see your own situation listed below, contact us now for a free consultation about your situation. Be mindful of the statute of limitations, which will vary depending on the nature of your accident. The sooner you act, the more time we will have to build a strong case and identify the best path forward.

When you get onto a New York bus, you are trusting the driver to take all of the proper precautions necessary to get you safely from one place to another. In fact, New York bus drivers are highly skilled drivers with CDL certifications and a number of other qualifications that New York, NY requires that they stay current on. However, none of these precautions or requirements are guarantees that you will not be hurt in a bus accident, and working with our personal injury law firm after a crash is one of the best steps you can take to get the money you deserve from the city.

Nobody goes to work in the morning planning to be hurt in a construction accident, but the unfortunate reality is that in 2019, there were 565 accidents, 595 injuries, and 12 deaths in New York City alone. One construction accident is too many, and it is important that you partner with a personal injury lawyer who can help you navigate the complex process of seeking workers’ compensation – or filing personal injury claims against the responsible parties if you are not a worker and are injured.

Biking in New York City can be an overwhelming experience for the uninitiated, and for good reason – even though the city has taken significant measures over the past few decades to improve cycling safety by adding protected bike lanes, better markings, and a range of other protective actions, the fact remains that there are a lot of cars driving in a lot of different directions throughout the city, and each one poses a risk to a cyclist. Working with a personal injury attorney is one of the best ways that a cyclist can successfully navigate a personal injury case and get the money they deserve after being in an automobile accident while cycling.

Walking on the sidewalks and crossing the streets of New York City is a fairly safe process, and every day thousands of pedestrians safely make it to and from their destinations without incident. However, this does not mean that everyone will be safe each day, which is illustrated by the fact that there were 124 pedestrians killed in 2019 stemming from an automobile accident in New York, many of which were the fault of the drivers. However, whether or not the driver of the motor vehicle is responsible for your accident, there is no guarantee that you will recover the compensation that you deserve without a fight.

Each time you enter someone else’s property, whether it is private, commercial, or even government, you have a right to expect that the property owner or manager has taken the appropriate precautions to ensure that you are not injured from an avoidable hazard such as wet floors, broken handrails, icy walkways, and more. Cases involving premise liability issues can get complicated quickly, but when you are working with the personal injury attorneys at our New York firm, you can be confident that there are people fighting to get you the money you deserve.

One of the most dangerous types of motor vehicle accidents are those between a car and a commercial truck, simply because of the size difference of the two vehicles. A low-speed car accident may result in injuries such as whiplash and bruising, but a truck accident at the same speed can lead to catastrophic injury for the passengers in the vehicle, as well as significant medical bills, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and more. Working with personal injury lawyers after a truck accident is an important step – fighting for compensation from a commercial insurance company can be even more difficult than a passenger vehicle insurance company.

Any case that would be covered under personal injury law that results in death will give the surviving family members the ability to seek compensation from the responsible party for a range of damages that include all measurable damages suffered by the victim, in addition to a range of losses and damages that the surviving family members must take on due to this tragic loss.

The Benefits of Working With a New York Personal Injury Lawyer

Many people believe that they can’t afford to hire a personal injury attorney after an accident, but the reality is that our law firm makes it easy to work with an experienced lawyer after suffering from a catastrophic injury by operating on a contingency fee basis instead of charging personal injury victims upfront. A contingency fee is a sum of money that your personal injury lawyers will receive ONLY if they win your case, meaning that you can be represented by multi-million dollar advocates for no expense out of pocket.

When you initiate a personal injury claim with the support of a personal injury lawyer, the defendant – whether it is an insurance company, a construction company, a personal entity, a medical malpractice insurance company, a business, or any other party responsible for your injuries – will recognize that you know your rights and that you intend to get the money that you deserve. In car accident claims, this may mean that the insurance agent assigned to your case will take your initial counter-offers seriously, whereas an insurance company will otherwise try to stall negotiations until the statute of limitations gets closer and the victim succumbs to the pressure to settle.

In addition to sending a signal that you know your rights and plan to fight for what you are entitled to, you can also have your personal injury lawyers handle the administrative work while you are focusing on recovering from your injuries. It is often shown that emotional stress has a serious impact on recovery from physical injuries, and it is no secret that trying to file a NY personal injury claim is stressful every step of the way. Our New York law firm is here to help so that you can prioritize what is most important – your recovery and your personal needs.

Client Testimonials

“After a cycling accident, I was referred to Isaacson, Schiowitz, & Korson. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Schiowitz the very next day. He walked me through the entire process and assured me he would handle everything ad I could just focus on getting better. I left that first meeting with no doubt in my mind that I was in good hands. And he delivered on his promise. He and his team handled everything from day one and is always one step ahead with updates and letting me know where the case stands. In each aspect of the case, he has gone above and beyond what I would have expected. I would highly recommend Mr. Schiowitz and the entire firm without reservation.”


“Recently, I have been involved in an extremely complicated and lengthy litigation in which I was represented by IS&K , LLP ( Issacson, Schiowitz and Korson, LLP ).

The case involved a Disability Pension, Social Security, Compensation, A Structured Settlement as well as a Lien from a Funding Company. Although retained strictly for a Third Party Negligence Suit IS&K skillfully navigated the obstacles set forth before them with an unequaled sense of determination, skill and duty that I was both impressed with and fortunate to have at my disposal. They demonstrated incredible knowledge and experience in all facets of law. I am both proud and confident to recommend this firm to anyone I encounter in need of their extraordinary services.”
