My Legal Practice

If you or a loved one has been injured, it is crucial that you take action quickly to preserve your rights including but not limited to personal injury compensation. A successful legal claim can make all the difference as you pursue the financial resources you need and are entitled to for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages you have sustained due to negligence.

At the Sheindlin Law Firm, I have dedicated my practice to helping people recover maximum compensation and other benefits for their damages. This includes those who have suffered:

Personal Injury And Wrongful Death

Traumatic Brain Injuries: Perhaps the most rapidly changing and complex area of my practice, with advancing technology and increasing public awareness changing the way people handle issues relating to brain trauma.

Motor Vehicle Accidents: I handle claims involving all types of vehicles and transit, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, taxis, bicycles and commercial vehicles.

Construction Site Injuries: If you have been injured on a construction site, you may be entitled to workers' compensation, but did you know you could also be entitled to personal injury compensation?

Commercial And Residential Property Accidents: These "premises" cases occur when a person is injured due to an unsafe condition on property that may be used for public, private, residential or commercial purposes. If you have been injured due to a property owner failing to take precautions, you can collect compensation.

Elevator And Escalator Accidents: In New York City, millions of people use elevators or escalators every day at work and at home. There are many laws and codes that apply to keep people safe. However, when they are ignored or broken, injuries can result. As your lawyer, I'll make sure that your rights are protected and enforced against those who were negligent.

Public Transportation Accidents: I handle claims relating to commuter trains, subways, buses and other forms of public transportation. Learn more.

Unsafe Products: In our global economy, it is harder than ever to make sure the products you use are safe. If someone's shortcuts or negligence has resulted in your injury, I can help you identify the problem and hold wrongdoers responsible. I handle a wide variety of products liability claims.

Dog/Animal Bites: Pet owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. If someone's failure to properly control their pet has left you injured, I will pursue the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, pain and suffering including psychological injuries, and other damages.

Civil Rights Violations

We help those whose rights have been violated as a result of police abuse, unlawful arrest, malicious prosecution, wrongful imprisonment, and other wrongs.

Medical Malpractice

We turn to medical professionals for help and trust in their capability to diagnose and treat us. Unfortunately, their negligent actions can result in serious injuries, often with permanent consequences. If you or a loved one has been harmed by the negligence of a doctor, nurse or hospital, I can determine whether you have a valid claim for compensation.

Criminal Defense Matters

A criminal charge can quickly turn your life upside down. You deserve the strongest possible defense to protect your rights and your future. Whether you are facing charges for theft, white collar crime, assault, a drug charge, murder or another criminal violation, I can build a strong case that does everything possible to preserve your freedom.
