Experienced Manhattan Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Safeguarding Accident Victims’ Rights Throughout NY

For most accident victims, the prospect of negotiating with insurance companies and navigating the personal injury recovery process in Manhattan courts is daunting—and unfortunately often leads to victims accepting lowball insurance settlements to get immediate financial relief.  Although we know it is tempting to accept the insurance check and try to move on, in many cases the financial relief provided will be short-lived and you could quickly find yourself facing additional expenses that you never anticipated. 

This is why we have dedicated our practice to advocating for all accident victims who have sustained injuries because of someone else’s carelessness. Our track record of success shows that having the best lawyer possible on your side can make all the difference in winning a compensation award designed to protect both your current and future financial security.

At Proner & Proner, our personal injury attorneys have the legal experience, knowledge, and tenacity needed to effectively take on insurance companies and defense attorneys in your case.  Our lawyers in New York established our successful practice more than half a century ago and we have spent that time fighting for accident victims’ rights in Manhattan and throughout New York.  Our legal firm can help you recover compensation if you have sustained personal injuries because of:

  • Car accidents.  Negligent drivers cause accidents on a daily basis on the often-congested streets of Manhattan, and they should be held financially responsible for their actions—and you may be entitled to compensation beyond what your own insurance carrier provides.
  • Bus accidents, taxi accidents, train accidents, and subway accidents.  Accidents involving government-operated entities can be more complicated than those solely involving private actors, but our skilled personal injury attorneys have the resources necessary to effectively handle these cases.
  • Bicycle accidents. bike accidents can result in injuries that are much more serious because the bicyclist will take the brunt of the impact. 
  • Uber accidents.  Accidents involving ride-sharing services such as Uber can also involve specialized insurance requirements designed to ensure victims are appropriately compensated.  Our lawyers will fight to get you the maximum compensation available.
  • Construction accidents.  The island of Manhattan is no stranger to construction projects, but these construction sites present significant dangers that often cause personal injury both for workers and pedestrians simply walking by.
  • Medical malpractice.  When a medical professional’s negligent treatment causes or worsens your injury, you have the right to hold them financially accountable for any resulting harm.

In most cases, you must file a personal injury lawsuit in Manhattan within three years of the date the accident took place.  This “statute of limitations” can be extended or shortened based upon any number of circumstances, so contact our lawyers as soon as possible to ensure all deadlines are met.

FAQ: Will I have to go to court to get compensation for a personal injury?
