Skilled Maspeth Lawyer Works to Secure Compensation for Those Hurt in Accidents
Knowledgeable New York attorney handles personal injury matters
At the Law Offices of Alfred Odom, P.C. in Maspeth, New York, I strongly advocate for the interests of personal injury victims. I understand the potential long-term repercussions of a serious injury and work to secure compensation for injured clients in Brooklyn, Westchester County, Long Island, Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan and the Bronx. I handle a variety of cases, including medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death. Whether you lost a loved one in a car accident, were given the wrong prescription, or were hit by a commercial truck, I will use my 30 years of experience to get you a fair outcome.
Experienced law firm assists with motor vehicle and truck accident injuries
New York is a no-fault state and requires accident victims to initially go through their own insurance policies for compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other accident-related expenses. Only in certain situations can you sue the other driver — specifically, if you sustained a “serious injury” with damages that exceed the limit of your no-fault coverage. Examples of “serious injuries” include:
- Bone fractures
- Significant disfigurement
- Permanent damage to an organ or limb
- Substantial disability for 90 days or more
I know how devastating car and truck accidents can be and will use every legal option at my disposal to prove the other party’s negligence and support your claim.
Dedicated counselor adeptly presents vehicle rollover cases
Vehicle rollovers can produce catastrophic injuries, and reconstruction experts are frequently used to determine why and how they happened. Rollovers are often attributed to manufacturer design defects that exacerbate injuries, such as airbags that do not deploy or an electronic stability system that does not work. I will bring together a team of experts to prove that a defective product was what caused your vehicle rollover and pursue the manufacturer or third party that is responsible.
Diligent advocate pursues medical malpractice cases
If a medical professional fails to act in a way that another professional in their position would and someone is injured as a result, they may be liable for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice suits can take a lot of time to resolve. Unlike other states, though, New York law does not require alternative dispute resolution prior to bringing a lawsuit or place limits on how much compensation you can recover. I have the experience to effectively handle these matters and will work with medical experts to verify and prove the extent of your injuries.
Knowledgeable attorney helps families recover in wrongful death actions
While nothing can replace a lost loved one, filing a wrongful death action against those responsible may be appropriate. The deceased’s personal representative, who may be their executor, trustee or relative, can seek compensation for losses to surviving family members and other beneficiaries and for losses to the deceased’s estate. These cases can be emotional and complex, and I will provide the support needed to help you seek justice.
