Experienced team helps victims obtain compensation
Orak & Associates, PC in Pearl River, NY handles a wide range of personal injury cases throughout the New York metropolitan area. Whether you sustained injuries in a motor vehicle accident or at the hands of a negligent doctor, or if you wish to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a deceased loved one, you don't have to go it alone.
Representing clients in medical malpractice lawsuits
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other healthcare professional fails to meet an accepted standard of care and causes injury to a patient. However, presenting a compelling case before a jury in these matters is not so simple, and you only have two-and-a-half years after the incident to file a lawsuit in most cases. We are familiar with the nuances of the statute of limitations and other laws governing these matters and can help determine whether your case is likely to succeed in court.
Skilled advocates help you after a slip and fall
Slip and fall cases stem from a property owner's failure to maintain or upkeep the premises where the injury occurred. To prove such negligence, we must establish the following:
- The property owner owed you a reasonable duty of care.
- The property owner breached that duty of care.
- That breach directly caused the incident.
- You suffered physical harm as a result.
Slip and fall accidents frequently take place in offices, shopping centers, restaurants and grocery stores. Wherever your incident occurred, our team will gather evidence to help establish your claim and hold the owner accountable for your injuries.
Seasoned litigators represent clients involved in truck and car accidents
Truck and car accidents can cause life-altering injuries, requiring expensive, ongoing medical treatment and resulting in loss of income. New York car accident victims are protected by the state's no-fault insurance law that covers medical bills and lost wages, but you must file a notice of accident with the insurance company within 30 days to qualify. For certain types of serious injuries, a claim can be made against other drivers who may have been at fault. We have a proven track record of helping injured individuals recover damages from the liable parties.
Compassionate wrongful death lawyers seek justice
If you lost a loved one due to malpractice, negligence or the intentional act of another, New York law allows a wrongful death suit to be brought by the decedent's personal representative (usually the estate executor or administrator). Such a suit can seek damages on behalf of surviving family members, including:
- Death and funeral costs
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of future income
- Pain and suffering of the deceased
- Medical expenses
- Punitive damages
These cases are often highly complex and challenging to prove, but we have a thorough understanding of the laws and a passion for seeking justice and favorable verdicts.
