Injury lawyers representing individuals injured in NYC, Manhattan, and throughout New York

Not all accidents cause severe injuries, but any degree of injury can result in significant medical and other expenses. Each New York injury attorney at Rubenstein & Rynecki has extensive experience helping ensure individuals who suffer injury due to the negligent or willful acts of others receive the full compensation they deserve.

Common types of accidental injuries

The degree of injury can make a difference when determining your best options for pursuing damages, as follows:

  • Minor injuries such as cuts and contusions can result from fender benders or other minor car accidents, slip and fall accidents, or even dog bites. In most cases, they require minimal medical attention, and victims experience little loss of work time or other concerns. Our attorneys may recommend that victims with minor injuries file insurance claims to pursue compensation for any related costs.
  • Moderate injuries such as whiplash, sprains and strains, broken bones, or significant open wounds and lacerations typically result from car and truck accidents, construction and other workplace accidents, slip and fall incidents, and a host of other situations. Depending on their severity, these injuries can result in significant medical costs, lost work time, and other costs, such as paying others to handle daily responsibilities during the recovery period. Obtaining recovery for the costs associated with moderate injuries often involves pursuing out-of-court settlements through negotiation with opposing attorneys. Our track record of success illustrates that our attorneys have extensive experience handling these negotiations to help obtain full and fair recovery for our clients.
  • Severe injuries can involve traumatic head injury, severe damage to the back and spinal cord, and severe internal damage—and they typically involve a long-term recovery period or even permanent disability. All too often, truck and construction accidents cause severe injuries that incur very high expenses for a lifetime, typically beyond any monetary award that might be available through negotiated settlement. In these cases, we may recommend litigating before a jury to help ensure our clients obtain awards that cover past, current, and future anticipated expenses.
