Personal Injury and Medical Mistakes 

Personal Injury

Personal injury accidents are caused by the negligence of others.  The law seeks to compensate victims and their families for pain and suffering, lost earnings, spousal loss of consortium, and at times award punitive damages in the event of gross negligence.  With almost thirty-years of successful experience in trying complex litigation matters, Dan Engstrand helps deserving injured clients recover monetary damages for their losses.

 

 

Automobile Accidents

If you live on Long Island, the odds are high that you or a family member may be involved in a serious motor vehicle accident.  New York's No-Fault Law requires that an injured party complete and file a no-fault insurance claim within 30-days of the accident to cover medical expenses and lost wages associated with any injuries sustained.  However, if you have been seriously injured, the law also allows you to sue for the pain and suffering associated with these injuries.  Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in damages for clients injured in motor vehicle, tractor trailer, construction vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents both at trial and in settlement. 

Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice can occur anytime a doctor, or other medical professional, commits an act that deviates from accepted medical standards of practicing medicine. This can take the form of a misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose illness or injury, failure to properly treat illness or injury, misuse of medical devices, surgical error or omission, medication and treatment errors. Medical negligence can result in birth trauma, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, paralysis or death.

If you or a loved one has been injured by the negligence of another or the carelessness of a doctor, hospital, nurse, pharmaceutical, or other health care provider, our firm has the experience needed to  help you pursue a case against the negligent party.  With almost thirty years of experience in litigating personal injury and medical malpractice actions in both state and federal courts, we have been successful in recovering millions of dollars for our clients. 

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence of another individual or entity. A wrongful death suit can be brought by the surviving family members for the pain and suffering that their loved one suffered at the time of death as well as for their loss of financial support that the surviving family members have sustained as a result of this wrongful death. To do so, legal papers must first be filed with the Surrogate’s Court to authorize the family members to proceed with the wrongful death suit.  At Doniger & Engstrand, PLLC, we are experienced in Surrogate’s Court proceedings as well as in wrongful death litigation.  Therefore, if you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another, you should contact us immediately to protect your rights and the rights of your family.

Products Liability

Products liability law includes products that are unsafe and harmful when used in their intended manner including harmful prescription drugs and implanted surgical devices.  At Doniger & Engstrand, PLLC, we have handled products liability cases in both State and Federal Court.
