PERSONAL INJURY

At BRUCE J. GITLIN, P.C., we understand that a personal injury is often a life-changing event, and we are tireless in our fight to protect the rights of our clients and to secure the compensation they need to carry on with their lives. Our attorneys have dedicated most of their careers to representing victims who have suffered serious personal injury, and we have recovered millions of dollars in money damages for clients who have experienced pain and suffering, as well as lost wages and income, arising out of serious accidents and bodily injuries. Further, we have achieved notable results in securing compensation for the estates of families whose family members have suffered wrongful death.

Unfortunately, personal injury may occur for a variety of reasons – at times due to the carelessness of individuals, or the negligence of companies, that have either manufactured defective products or have devoted insufficient attention to safety on the job site. These injuries may also occur away from the work site, in an unexpected place. But no matter the location of the injury, or the cause, we stand ready to recover significant money damages for our clients.

We have tried cases in the Supreme Court of the State of New York and in federal court, and have argued appeals before the appellate courts on both the state and federal levels. No matter where the case arises, we are ready to stand up for our clients.
