Jamaica, Queens Personal Injury Lawyers Seek Compensation for Plaintiffs

Respected Queens firm serves New York City and Nassau County

Aguwa & Metu, P.C. in Jamaica, Queens is an established personal injury firm assisting clients throughout New York City and Nassau County. In these matters, we use our trial and negotiation skills to get victims the payment they need to address the medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering caused by someone else’s carelessness. For cases associated with negligence-related instances such as car crashes, falls and medical malpractice, you can count on us to battle on your behalf. 

Aggressive advocates assist people hurt in auto accidents

As cars speed around the area, many New Yorkers may need the services of an accomplished car accident lawyer at one time or another. The state’s no-fault insurance laws often confuse victims, but our knowledgeable attorneys are able to answer all your questions and deliver tenacious advocacy in a full range of vehicle accident cases, including matters related to collisions involving:

  • Trucks — Cases arising from truck accidents could involve numerous parties and life-changing physical and financial harm. We are well versed in this field and won’t back down in pursuit of justice for our clients. 
  • Bicycles — Drivers frequently ignore the rights of bicycle riders on city streets, leading to sideswipes, open-door injuries and collisions that occur while turning a corner. 
  • Pedestrians — When pedestrians are lawfully in a crosswalk, motor vehicles must yield to them. Refusal to do so could end up in a severe, or even fatal, injury to the person who was walking.

Though the harm from a traumatic brain injury or some other medical condition triggered by a vehicle crash can last for decades, you only have three years after your collision to file suit. Acting quickly gives you the best chance to achieve a favorable result.  

Thorough counselors advise on wrongful death claims

Within two years of someone’s death, the personal representative of the victim’s estate can file a lawsuit against a party whose wrongful conduct caused the fatality. Claims and damages are similar to those that are available in personal injury actions where the victim is still alive. They include compensation for final expenses, medical costs incurred before the decedent passed away and wages that the person would have earned had they lived. If you lost a family member in a car crash, construction accident, due to medical malpractice or in some other type of tragedy, we can advise you of your rights.     

Queens personal injury attorneys litigate cases arising from slip and fall incidents

We provide strong counsel to clients in slip and fall litigation, construction accident claims and various types of cases where parties responsible for maintaining safe premises fail to honor their legal duty. With more than 20 years of experience, our premises liability lawyers understand the tactics used by defendants and insurance companies. Regardless of whether you got hurt due to an unmarked hazard on a store floor, a cracked sidewalk or a loose escalator step, our attorneys are ready to fight effectively on your behalf. 

Skillful firm represents individuals harmed by medical malpractice

When someone is harmed due to medical malpractice, it can be very intimidating to challenge the doctors, nurses and hospitals who were supposed to care for you. You might not be sure what specifically happened during the relevant treatment or even if professional standards were violated at all. We’ll clearly explain the process required to recover damages from a negligent healthcare provider and take aggressive action to get you the financial compensation you deserve.
