Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle in North Hempstead

Motor Vehicle Accidents

In spite of all the safety features now available on modern vehicles, traffic accidents continue to injure and take the lives of far too many people. Our practice has in-depth knowledge of state and local traffic laws in regard to:

If you have been the victim of a distracted, reckless, or impaired driver, a mechanical defect in a vehicle or traffic signal, a negligent repair, or poor road maintenance, we will fight tooth and nail to make sure you receive the damages you need to restart your life.

Premises Liability 

All property owners have a duty of care to keep their property safe for others. If you have been seriously injured on someone else’s property, whether at a neighbor’s home, a bank, post office, hotel, supermarket, public park, or school, you may well have a viable premises liability claim. Premises liability can be claimed if you were hurt by:

Once we establish liability and identify the responsible party, we are ready to fight for damages, not only for your out-of-pocket expenses but for your intangible losses, such as physical pain and mental anguish.

Medical Malpractice In North Hempstead

It is frightening to realize that we are vulnerable to the negligence, poor judgment, or incompetence of some of our healthcare providers. The sad truth is that some doctors, nurses, aides, and hospital administrators can be careless at times. 

At Kohan Law Group, we are well-prepared to fight your battle against the person or entity responsible, no matter how rich, prestigious, or powerful. Contact us now if you or your loved one has suffered any of the following:

  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
  • Surgical mistake
  • Prescription or dosage error
  • Birth injury
  • Anesthesia misuse
  • Nursing home negligence or abuse

Our attorneys will always support your right to receive maximum compensation.

Product Liability

As we all know from the multiple recalls of cars, toys, medications, baby foods, produce, tools, etc., many defective, contaminated, and dangerous products make their way to the marketplace. A fair number of them actually cause innocent victims serious harm. 

While some of these hazardous products circulate because of undiscovered errors in design, manufacture, or marketing, too many are not brought to the attention of the public because of the greed of those responsible. If you or a loved one has been hurt, hospitalized, or disabled by a defective product, get in touch with our office immediately so we can start making things right and bringing you the justice you deserve.

When Personal Injury Results in Wrongful Death

Any of the above types of personal injury can result in wrongful death. Our attorneys know that nothing can bring back your lost loved one or lessen the pain of knowing that their death could have been avoided with greater care, vigilance, or ethical behavior. Nonetheless, we will do everything possible to ensure that you receive funds for final medical costs, funeral/burial/ cremation expenses, and loss of financial and emotional support, as well as a sense of justice.

Pure Comparative Negligence in North Hempstead and Throughout New York

It is important to note that in a certain percentage of personal injury cases, the victim may bear a certain percentage of fault, for example if both drivers committed a traffic violation at the time they collided, or if a person who slipped and fell on a slippery surface was intoxicated. 

If you are in this situation, you are fortunate to live in New York which works under the principle of pure comparative negligence. This means that you are entitled to sue for damages even if you are assigned a higher percentage of fault by the court than the opposing party. You will, however, have your awarded damages decreased by your percentage of fault. So, for example, if you are awarded $500,000 in damages but assigned 10 percent of the blame, you will actually receive $450,000.

Damages We Will Fight to Recover

We are committed to working tirelessly to win you the compensation that will carry you through the recovery process and into your possibly altered future. We will seek damages for: 

  • Medical and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost income
  • Property damage
  • Replacement services
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
