New York Personal Injury Lawyer Working For You
Leandros Vrionedes is a New York personal injury lawyer helping people throughout New York City, Long Island and Westchester County who have been injured due to the negligence or misconduct of another. In addition to helping victims of automobile accidents and construction accidents, we maintain a vigorous employment law and workers’ compensation practice, representing employees who are injured on the job, discriminated at work, or denied their fair wages and overtime compensation. Below is a brief overview of our main practice areas. If we can be of assistance to you in any of these areas, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
Vehicle Accidents – Our office deals with all types of motor vehicle collisions, including car accidents, truck accidents, bus accidents and motorcycle accidents. We help victims of vehicle on vehicle collisions, as well as bicyclists and pedestrians struck by motor vehicles. We understand New York’s complicated no-fault system and know how to successfully file an MVAIC claim or recover for serious injuries in a civil lawsuit.
Premises Liability – Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition. From a slip and fall on a wet floor to a trip on a broken sidewalk, we work to identify the responsible party and hold them accountable for their negligence. We hold apartment building owners liable for the presence of dangerous lead, or for negligent security that allows assaults to take place that could have been prevented. We will also hold municipalities and public transit liable for accidents that occur on their property.
Medical Malpractice – When doctors, nurses or other health care practitioners violate the trust we have placed in them, the results can be traumatic and even deadly. We hold doctors liable for their negligence, incompetence or violation of professional ethics that results in injury, including birth injuries. We also hold hospitals and HMOs liable for malpractice, as well as dentists and pharmacists when their conduct causes harm.
Products Liability – We hold product makers liable when they release goods with manufacturing or design defects which fail to act as they should and cause injury. Products may also be defective due to a lack of adequate safety warnings or clear instructions on their safe use. Our product defects practice includes everything from child toys and household cleaners to defective automobiles, defective drugs and defective medical devices.
Workplace Injuries – Workers who are injured on the job or suffer from an occupational disease are entitled to medical expenses and wage replacement benefits whether partially or totally disabled, or left with a temporary or permanent disability. We help injured workers obtain the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled, while also considering sources of third party liability where applicable. Our job-related injury practice places special emphasis on construction accidents, including scaffolding collapses, ladder falls, electrocution, and forklift & crane accidents.
Catastrophic Injuries – The most serious accidents are generally the most expensive and often the most complicated to deal with, involving complex factual and legal questions. Getting the most compensation requires a thorough understanding of the injury and the comprehensive needs of the injured. We represent victims of traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, amputations, fractures, peripheral nerve damage and more. We also represent families who have a lost a loved one by pursuing wrongful death and survival actions to help ease the financial burden left behind by the loss.
Civil Rights – Under a federal law known as section 1983, victims of civil rights violations may seek compensation when their rights are violated by government officials or others acting in a governmental capacity. We stand up for victims of police brutality and harassment, illegal searches and false arrests, and prosecutorial misconduct such as malicious prosecution.
