Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury in New York. Due to the sheer number of automobiles on the road, it’s very likely that most people will be involved in an automobile accident sometime during their lifetimes. Injuries from car, truck, and motorcycle accidents range from minor bumps and bruises to traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries to even death. Yet, no matter the injury, all accidents should be taken seriously.

Construction sites are complex. There are falling objects, moving hazards, huge machines, scaffolds and ladders to negotiate. Even when the construction worker is completely aware of their surroundings and those responsible for the worker’s safety have put all of the safety measures in place, accidents happen. However, when someone causes a preventable construction accident through negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim’s injuries. Whether you were an employee or a bystander, you may be eligible to receive economic recovery for your losses.
All property owners, residential and commercial, have the duty to ensure safe environments for all visitors. Common situations giving rise to premises accidents include uneven floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, slippery surfaces, broken sidewalks, uneven elevators and broken steps. If you have been harmed by a hazardous condition on another’s property, including a sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building, school, park, theater, or museum, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim and receive compensation for your injury.
Every year hundreds of people are injured or killed by dog bites and attacks. Even responsible dog owners cannot always ensure they take every safety precaution with their dog, which could put you and your loved ones at risk. The damage sustained to your body from a dog attack, including disfigurement and chronic pain, can have a lasting impact on your ability to earn a living and your quality of life.
The attorneys at the Law Firm of Nonna Shikh, PC represent those who have been injured or killed by dog bites and attacks, and can help you receive compensation from those who are liable for the damages. If you or a loved one has been involved in a dog bite or attack, you may be entitled to compensation for:

Nursing home staffing levels are an important factor in quality of care. Some of the most common indicators of nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect include pressure sores (bedsores, decubiti), medication errors, falls and fractures, infections, malnutrition and dehydration, unexplained bruises or cuts, choking incidents, and significant weight loss or gain.
Abuse can include physical abuse involving the use of force against a patient that may result in pain, impairment or even death. It can also include emotional abuse, such as verbal abuse or passive behaviors that leave patients in states of pain, distress, anxiety or fear. It can also involve the financial exploitation of a patient by a caregiver.
Family members often place their trust and confidence in a nursing home to care for an elderly relative. All too often, nursing homes place their drive for profits above the needs and rights of residents. Our elderly are entitled to a dignified existence. When a loved one is placed in a nursing home, he or she should expect the degree of care that is appropriate for the well-being and dignity of the resident. When a family member is mistreated, you should immediately seek the advice of an attorney.
