Experienced Trial Attorneys Advocate for New Yorkers
Skilled representation for civil litigation clients on Long Island and in the five boroughs
A civil litigation matter can add stress and uncertainty to your life and disrupt your family and business. But by retaining the services of a seasoned trial attorney, you can increase your chances of achieving a positive outcome. At Cassisi & Cassisi, P.C. in Mineola, our lawyers have more than over a half a century of combined legal experience fighting for New Yorkers in a variety of civil cases. As high-powered litigators, we routinely represent clients in personal injury accidents, construction site incidents, products liability claims, and other torts throughout Long Island and New York City.
Seasoned litigators handle personal injury claims
When you are injured in an accident caused by negligence or misconduct, you must contact a knowledgeable lawyer. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover damages. Recognizing that your mobility may be impaired because of your injury, our attorneys can meet with you at your home or in the hospital.
It is important to understand that New York follows a comparative negligence rule. This means that the amount of compensation you can recover after an accident will be reduced in proportion to your own negligence. For example, if you are awarded $100,000 in damages but you are found to be 30 percent at fault for your accident, you are eligible to receive only $70,000. Our accomplished attorneys provide compassionate representation to victims who suffer in the following kinds of accidents:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
When you seek our counsel, we assess your case and determine if litigation is your best option. Our lawyers understand that your injuries may be severe, so we are ready to litigate intensely to help you recover compensation that accounts for the full extent of the harm you’ve suffered.
Diligent representation for construction site accident victims
Due to the many parties involved in construction projects, there may be more than one liable party when an injury occurs on site. Our firm represents plaintiffs who’ve been injured on construction sites in New York City and Long Island by:
- Building collapses
- Crane accidents
- Forklift injuries
- Falls from heights
- Demolition accidents
A construction site accident can leave workers and others with severe injuries requiring lengthy medical care and lost wages. When litigation is your only recourse, we are here to fight passionately to safeguard your rights and advance your interests.
Advocates seek compensation for products liability plaintiffs
Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safely designed and free of defects. If you’re injured by a malfunctioning or hazardous product or one that has been improperly labeled, you may have grounds for a products liability lawsuit. In New York, as long as your injury occurred while you were using the product in the manner it was intended, you do not have to prove negligence to seek compensation from a manufacturer. Common defective products include:
- Automotive components (tires, airbags, wheels, brakes, etc.)
- Medical devices
- Food items
- Construction vehicles and equipment
If you wish to file a products liability claim in New York City, contact our office as soon as possible. Under the statute of limitations, you have only three years from the date of your injury to take legal action.
Knowledgeable counsel for insurance claims
Many people fail to realize that insurance companies are businesses focused on increasing profits — not paying out claims. If your claim is undervalued or denied without good reason, our experienced lawyers can negotiate with your insurance company or take them to court to help you receive a fair settlement. Whether your dispute involves bad faith, car insurance, medical billing, or any other type of coverage, we are prepared to fight fervently for your rights.
