New York Personal Injury Attorney Handles All Types of Accident Cases

Experienced lawyer assists victims of injuries throughout Nassau County

At The Law Firm of Cheryl Kitton in Bellmore, New York, we represent Nassau County clients in a range of personal injury matters. If you suffered an injury because of a defective product, a slip and fall, a motor vehicle accident, a dog bite or any other incident caused by someone’s negligence, we can help you pursue compensation. Our firm also handles cases involving wrongful death.

Dedicated advocate helps those injured by defective products

Products liability claims can hinge on any of the following:

  • Failure to provide adequate warning — The manufacturer does not give sufficient instructions for product use or does not specify warnings regarding potential hazards of using the product.
  • Manufacturing defects — A mistake takes place when the product is made that renders it hazardous for consumer use.
  • Design defects — The actual design of the product is hazardous and presents danger to the consumer.
  • False advertising — The manufacturers or sellers make claims about the product’s testing or safety for use that are not substantiated by evidence.

If you’ve suffered injuries caused by a defective product, we can look at the circumstances to determine the point at which the defect was introduced.

Skilled representation in slip and fall cases

To establish a slip and fall claim in New York, the following conditions must be met:

  • The owner’s property presented a hazardous condition.
  • The owner was aware of or had reason to know of the hazardous condition before you fell.
  • The owner had a sufficient period prior to the incident to rectify the hazard but failed to do so.
  • You suffered harm as a direct result of the hazardous condition.

A skilled lawyer who understands the intricacies of New York’s slip and fall laws can provide valuable guidance.

Accomplished firm handles motor vehicle accident cases and wrongful death suits

If you suffered injuries in an auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages. New York is a no-fault state, which means you must recover first from your own insurance company and can sue another party only for serious injuries like disfigurement and long-term disability.

If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of a car accident or other incident involving negligence, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit on the decedent’s behalf. If you are a child, parent, spouse or personal representative of the victim, our firm can provide legal guidance and advice during these challenging times.

Experienced lawyer aids dog bite victims

In New York, if a dog was previously known to be dangerous, the owner may be strictly liable for any injuries the animal causes. If the dog was not previously recognized as dangerous, the owner can still be liable if the victim offers proof of the owner’s negligence. An attorney can determine if you are eligible for monetary damages.
