Bronx Personal Injury Attorney

At The O’Connor Law Firm, we represent accident victims across the New York Metropolitan area. We understand the challenges of living in this city, challenges that can be incredibly daunting when you’re injured. Bronx injury lawyer Brian J. O’Connor works hard for those who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, helping them so that they can pay their bills, get back to work, and take care of their families.  

Life in the Bronx

One of the five boroughs of New York City, the Bronx encompasses 57 square miles, including 15 square miles of water. It is home to 1,472,654 New Yorkers, making it the fourth-largest population among the five boroughs and the third-most densely populated. 

It’s no secret that the Bronx sees its share of economic hardship—unemployment is around 15% compared to the average national rate of 6%. The median household income in the Bronx is just over $34,000 per year. Meanwhile, the cost of living in the Bronx far exceeds the national average and even much of the New York metropolitan area.  

This is why Brian works so hard for injured people in the Bronx. He understands a severe injury can quickly become a financial crisis that threatens your home and your family. At The O’Connor Law Firm, our goal is to help you get fair compensation for your injuries so you can make a full recovery. 

A Bronx Personal Injury Attorney Handling All Types of Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury lawyers handle more than just car accident cases. Any time you suffer an injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced Bronx injury lawyer can help you with the following types of claims: 

Vehicle Accidents

All drivers have a legal obligation to drive safely to prevent accidents. While most of the accidents on the roads are between people driving private passenger vehicles, many other types of vehicle accidents can result in serious injury: 

Each of these types of accidents has its unique considerations. A Bronx injury lawyer with experience handling your type of case can significantly enhance your chances of getting the compensation you deserve. 

Premises Liability Accidents

Property owners have a legal duty to ensure their property is safe for guests and visitors. If they fail to make necessary repairs, warn visitors of hazards, or otherwise maintain their property, they can be held liable when injuries result. A Bronx personal injury attorney can help you pursue a claim for compensation if you were injured on someone else’s property as a result of the following: 

Whether the property is private, commercial, or owned by the government, you may be able to pursue a claim if you were injured on their property due to negligence. 

Construction Accidents

It should come as no surprise that construction sites are hazardous places. When accidents occur, they can result in catastrophic injuries and even death. But, whether you were injured by heavy machinery, a fall, electrocution, or an explosion, an experienced Bronx injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. 

Child Injuries

Children can suffer a severe injury in the blink of an eye. And while some of these accidents may be unavoidable, many are the result of negligent supervision. A Bronx personal injury attorney can help you get fair compensation for your child’s injuries in the following cases: 

Why You Need a Bronx Personal Injury Attorney

When you hire an attorney to handle your injury case, you, of course, want to work with someone knowledgeable and experienced. You need someone who knows how to build the most robust possible case so you can get results. 

However, there is more to successfully handling a personal injury case than knowing the general principles of personal injury law. You need a Bronx injury lawyer who knows the challenges you face in your daily life and understands where your accident occurred. In addition, you need someone who knows how to navigate the local court systems efficiently and effectively, an attorney who has deep experience with local laws and regulations. 

At The O’Connor Law Firm, we value being a part of the Bronx and working alongside its residents. To that end, we also handle cases involving injured city workers and those who have been injured as a result of the city’s negligence.  

How a Bronx Injury Lawyer Can Help

Suffering a serious injury as a result of an accident can be an overwhelming experience. You’re in pain, perhaps unable to work, and worried about your future. All you want is to get better, but you also need to pay your bills and care for your family. The insurance company is calling, asking questions, and requesting a lot of documents and other information. The good news is you don’t have to handle your claim on your own. 

A Bronx personal injury attorney can handle almost every aspect of your case so that you can focus on your recovery. 

  • Your attorney can gather the documentation and other evidence you need to support your claim.
  • Your attorney can handle all correspondence between you, the at-fault party, and the insurance company.
  • Your attorney can submit your claim to the insurance company and negotiate any settlement.
  • If your claim is unable to settle, they can file the lawsuit and pursue litigation. 

Ultimately, a Bronx injury lawyer can help you get fair compensation for your case to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and other losses.
