Auto accident injuries
Auto accidents have the potential to negatively impact your job, your family, your health and your quality of life. Even an apparently minor traffic accident may result in serious injuries. If you have been hurt because someone was negligent, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and lost income. Buckheit & Whelan, P.C. has successfully represented clients injured in auto accidents in New York for more than 40 years combined.
Buckheit & Whelan, P.C. handles motor vehicle accident claims that involve negligent motorists, pedestrians, dangerous road conditions and faulty or defective automobile parts.
When you are injured in a slip and fall
New York law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally-required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Buckheit & Whelan, P.C., our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to ensure that our clients obtain full and fair compensation for their injuries and financial losses stemming from a slip and fall accident resulting from unsafe conditions.
Legal duty of care
In order for a business to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused your injury and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
Assistance from experts
For both auto accident and slip and fall injuries, our attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts to assist with case preparation. Trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and collision reconstruction analysts lend their expertise to help our attorneys obtain the best possible settlements. At trial, these professional experts help by educating jurors about the specifics of the accident, what caused it and the injuries that resulted.
