Areas of Law Description
The following are some of the major types of cases we handle.
- Construction Accidents
Our firm, Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, has represented numerous construction workers that were unnecessarily injured through the owners and contractors failure to provide proper protective equipment, manpower, or procedures to protect the worker. The protections of the law are not limited to construction, but also apply to painting, pointing, demolition, repairing, altering or cleaning of a building or structure. There are certain exceptions.
- Scaffolding & Ladder Accidents
Construction workers and other people who work in high places have special legal protections in New York. If you have been injured in a fall from a scaffold or ladder, you should talk to an attorney to make sure you are getting all of the compensation you are legally entitled to. Likewise, if you have been injured by an object that fell from a height or was improperly hoisted, you may be entitled to monetary damages. At Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, we help scaffolding and ladder accident victims pursue personal injury claims to compensate them for their pain and suffering as well as to cover their medical bills and lost wages.
- Workplace Accidents
At the law firm of Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, we have successfully handled almost every type of workplace injury. Many of these injuries caused career-ending disability or death. Most of the injuries were the result of the negligence or misconduct of another person or entity. As a result, we have been able to obtain compensation for injured workers, securing major settlements and verdicts on their behalves.
- Auto Accidents
If you've been in a car accident you may require the assistance of a lawyer. A knowledgeable accident injury attorney can make a difference in your recovery. It does not matter if you were a driver, a passenger or a pedestrian struck by a car. Any type of car accident that you were in may entitle you to bring a lawsuit for your pain and suffering, lost wages and property damage. Even if you believe that you might be partially at fault for causing the accident you still may be able to recover damages.
- Building Accidents
At Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, we handle premises liability claims involving unsafe building conditions (caused by poor or improper maintenance or cleaning), environmental hazards (caused by peeling lead paint or toxic mold), poorly lit hallways and stairwells, debris, falls due to snow or ice, broken sidewalks, and a wide range of other issues such as:
• Fires, burns and explosions
• Collapsed ceilings
• Falls on stairways or escalators
• Elevator accidents
• Exposure and/or ingestion of lead paint
• Negligent building and property security resulting in assault or sexual assault
• Animal bites
• School or playground injuries
- Lead Poisoning
Lead paint is a hidden danger in many New York apartment buildings that can leave vulnerable children with serious brain damage. Landlords can be held accountable when their failure to remove or abate lead paint causes these kinds of tragic consequences. At Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, with offices in the Bronx and Queens, we help parents throughout the New York metro area pursue compensation for children with lead poisoning.
- Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents
If you have fallen and injured yourself on a sidewalk, slippery floor or staircase on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation from the property owner to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. At the law firm of Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, we help injured people throughout the New York metro area pursue compensation for slip and fall accidents.
- Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice means that doctors and other medical professionals have failed to follow the standards of their professions and end up causing injuries or illness to their patients. Common types of medical malpractice include but are not limited to the following:
• Surgical errors: Surgeons must be careful to avoid injuring organs, operating on the wrong parts of the body, leaving instruments in patients and other all-too-common surgical errors.
• Birth injuries: When doctors fail to use the correct procedures during childbirth — including cesarean section when appropriate — newborns can be left with nerve damage, shoulder dystocia, paralysis and other serious injuries.
• Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis: When primary care physicians, radiologists and other doctors fail to read the results of x-rays and other tests properly or fail to follow up on symptoms, illnesses such as cancer can be left untreated and get significantly worse.
• Prescription drug errors: If a doctor prescribed the wrong drug for your condition or a pharmacist filled your prescription improperly, they may be liable for malpractice.
In order to pursue a medical malpractice claim in New York, your lawyer will need to submit an expert report from another doctor in the same field as the doctor who injured you. It is important to act quickly to make sure your claim is submitted on time.
- Wrongful Death Accidents
If you have lost a family member in a construction accident, auto accident, building accident or any other accident, you may have a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. Under New York law, survivors and heirs can pursue compensation for damages such as:
• Loss of income and financial support
• Loss of companionship
• The deceased person's pain and suffering from the time of the accident until their death
• Medical expenses
• Funeral expenses
A wrongful death claim also gives you the opportunity to establish exactly what happened to your loved one and potentially prevent the same sort of tragedy from happening to other families. Our attorneys can advise you on how a wrongful death claim may serve and protect your interests.
