Aggressive Garden City Lawyer Manages Personal Injury Claims

Accomplished New York law firm protects the rights of injured victims

If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you need dedicated legal counsel. At many law firms, attorneys handle multiple practice areas. At the Jay D. Umans Law Offices in Garden City, New York, I only work on personal injury cases, including ones involving medical malpractice, pedestrian accidents and wrongful death. My keen knowledge of personal injury law and relevant legal strategies gives my clients peace of mind knowing that their claim is being handled properly.

Seasoned lawyer handles medical malpractice claims

When healthcare professionals are negligent in their duties and fail to uphold a standard of care one would expect from someone else in their position, the results can be catastrophic. My law office provides robust representation to medical malpractice victims, including those injured by the following types of malpractice:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to treat
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Medication errors

Medical malpractice can be difficult to prove, which is why I will consult with field experts in order to verify the extent of your injuries and get you the compensation you deserve.

Assertive attorney assists pedestrian accident victims

The New York metropolitan area is particularly high in pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians are typically injured or killed by drivers who:

  • Are intoxicated or otherwise impaired
  • Are distracted while behind the wheel
  • Fail to obey traffic signs and laws
  • Speed or otherwise drive recklessly

Victims turn to my law firm for the proficient legal representation they need. If settlement negotiations fail, I won’t hesitate to pursue justice in a courtroom so that my clients can be awarded the compensation they deserve.

Vigorous law firm represents slip and fall victims

Slip and fall cases can be difficult to litigate, given that evidence degrades quickly and may be hard to come by. My clients benefit from my extensive legal experience and knowledge of the court system. Slip and fall claims generally have a statute of limitations of three years, but shorter periods apply if the accident occurs on public property. However, it’s important to contact my office right away after the incident to improve the chances of preserving the evidence.

Knowledgeable attorney works with trucking accident victims

A trucking accident can cause life-changing, catastrophic injuries. I understand which tactics trucking companies could use to attempt to reduce their liability and limit your recovery amount, and I counter those tactics by formulating aggressive legal strategies designed to secure the maximum possible compensation. If another party besides the trucking company, such as a manufacturer, appears to be responsible for the accident, I will also help you pursue a third-party claim.

Dedicated lawyer provides guidance for wrongful death cases

In New York, a wrongful death lawsuit may seek compensation for injuries suffered by family members of a person killed due to another’s negligence or intentional act. It must be filed by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate within two years of the death. I bring clarity and resolve to wrongful death cases, enabling survivors to pursue justice for their lost loved one.
