Queens, as the largest borough of New York City, is accessible to Midtown, suburban, and even rural areas.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Queens

Traffic Accidents In Queens

Crowded roadways, increased drug abuse, and widespread use of mechanical devices all contribute to vehicular accidents that may result in serious, even catastrophic, injuries. The biggest contributor to these accidents, however, is negligent, reckless, or impaired driving

Our practice has in-depth knowledge of state and local traffic laws pertaining to:

If you have been the victim of a distracted, reckless, or impaired driver, our astute personal injury attorneys are here to help you recover the damages you deserve. We will also investigate to see whether mechanical defects in a vehicle or traffic signal, a negligent repair, or poor road maintenance played a part in causing your injuries.

Premises Liability In Queens

All property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe for others. If you have been seriously injured due to another party’s negligence at a neighbor’s home, a supermarket, school, public park, hotel, or parking lot, you may have a viable premises liability claim. 

Premises liability can be based on the defendant’s negligence as evidenced by:

  • Unmarked slippery surface
  • Broken banister or dangerous protruding object
  • Dog or other animal bites
  • Cracked sidewalk or pathway
  • Falling objects or debris
  • Unmarked holes or obstacles
  • Poor or absent lighting in a hallway, basement, or garage

Our lawyers are on your side, ready to fight for non-economic damages, such as physical pain and mental anguish, as well as for out-of-pocket medical costs and lost income.

Medical Malpractice

Accidental injuries can be overwhelming, especially when they could have been prevented by the other party’s concentration or care. Medical malpractice is particularly disturbing since it involves the negligence or incompetence of a healthcare professional in whom you put trust. At Kohan Law Group, we are well-positioned to level the playing field between you and the health-care provider who harmed you, no matter how well-to-do, prestigious, or powerful they are. 

If those in charge of your medical care did any of the following, causing you serious harm, you are entitled to substantial compensation:

  • Failed to obtain informed consent before a procedure
  • Failed to properly diagnose your condition
  • Made a significant surgical mistake
  • Prescribed the wrong medication or dosage 
  • Misused anesthesia
  • Caused a birth injury
  • Committed or allowed nursing home negligence or abuse

Product Liability

In spite of laws to protect consumers from defective, contaminated, or otherwise dangerous products, each year a great many people are badly injured or made seriously ill by products they have purchased. Depending on where along the line the product became unsafe, your lawsuit may target the designer, the manufacturer, or the marketing team. 

Our legal team will fight tirelessly against what may be a powerful corporation that has put your health or safety at risk, too often in the interest of protecting its bottom line.

When Personal Injury Results in Wrongful Death in Queens

Our attorneys know that nothing can compensate you for the loss of a loved one. Nonetheless, we want to bring you a sense of justice as well as the funds that will help to secure your future by covering final medical costs, funeral/burial/ cremation expenses, and loss of financial and emotional support.

Pure Comparative Negligence in Queens and Throughout New York 

There are personal injury cases in which the victim bears some of the blame for the accident, e.g. by driving too fast at the time of a collision or by falling on a slippery floor while intoxicated. 

In such cases, the court will determine each party’s percentage of fault, and your percentage will be deducted from your awarded damages. Even so, New York is a pure comparative negligence state, so you can sue for damages even if you bear the greater portion of the blame. Our attorneys will always do all we can to make certain that you receive the highest compensation possible.

Damages We Will Seek on Your Behalf

If you have suffered real losses due to harm caused by someone else’s negligence, our legal advocates will fight for the damages you deserve for:

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