When You’re Harmed by Someone’s Negligence, Our Kingston, New York Accident Lawyers Will Fight to Get You the Best Recovery Possible
Life can be unpredictable. All it takes is a single moment of carelessness or one bad decision and your life can be changed forever. Injuries prevent you from earning a living, bills pile up, and medical expenses can be overwhelming.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of negligence, you need more than an attorney to file a lawsuit. You need someone to answer your questions and advise you on what should be done at each stage of the proceedings. You need a guide to help you get your life back on track and back to normal. At the law firm of Mainetti, Mainetti & O’Connor, we specialize in helping people put their lives back together after negligence and injury have torn them apart.
Our firm has nearly 85 years of experience helping injured people throughout Ulster and the surrounding counties and across New York State. Our attorneys routinely deal with insurance companies and we have made a career of fighting to get every dollar you deserve.
We never forget that when a victim of negligence retains an attorney, that attorney becomes one of the most important people in that victim’s life. In many instances, a case’s outcome will have a dramatic effect on our client’s quality of life as they recover from their injuries. That mindset is what drives us to work late hours, to work on weekends, and never to stop fighting to get the compensation our clients deserve.
While no two cases are the same, we approach each and every case with the same level of determination and resolve. We know how much these cases mean to our clients, and we know how much hinges on our clients being fully compensated for their injuries. Everything we do is done to ensure you can put your life back together after an accident.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Mainetti, Mainetti & O’Connor is dedicated to helping people who have been injured throughout New York State. We have handled cases in many areas of law, but we specialize in helping people who have been injured in the following ways:
Working in construction is inherently dangerous, but that doesn't mean that construction companies and property owners can get away with having you work in unsafe conditions. With all of the construction that goes on around the Empire State, there are thousands of construction site injuries that happen every year. What most people don’t know is that Section 240 and 241 of the New York State Labor Law provides protection for people on a work site. If you’re injured because your employer or a landowner has failed to comply with the law, we can hold them accountable for your injuries.
Car accidents happen every day all across New York State. Despite being so common, most people don’t know what to do after they’ve been involved in an accident. Who will pay your medical bills? What if you can’t work? What if the person who hit me has little or no insurance? At Mainetti, Mainetti & O’Connor we are intimately familiar with every step you should take after an accident. We know where to look to find out if there’s additional insurance policies that may be available to you. We always make sure that we examine every avenue to ensure the maximum possible recovery.
Did you know that every car that is legally on the road in New York State has “No-Fault” insurance coverage? “No-Fault” will pay, at minimum, for the first $50,000 dollars worth of lost wages and medical bills attributable to your accident. If you are ever involved in any motor vehicle accident make sure that you take advantage of “No-Fault,” it’s there to protect you!) for crucial information that every motorist who has been in a car accident should know.
At Mainetti, Mainetti & O’Connor, we look out for motorcyclists because drivers on the highway don't. For years we have represented many motorcycle enthusiasts, including clubs and touring groups. It’s an unfortunate reality that clients who have been involved in motorcycle accidents often need the most help, because their injuries are usually catastrophic. Think about it: motorcycles have no seat belts, no airbags, and no protection from you hitting the road or another car. Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable drivers on the road. We realize this and do everything we can, not only to relentlessly fight for injured riders, but also to spread awareness and to encourage other drivers to keep an eye out and share the road with motorcyclists.
Premises liability involves accidents that occur because of a property owner's negligence. Examples of this would be:
- Dog bites
- Icy and dangerous property conditions, failing to remove snow and ice
- Defective sidewalks
- Failure to maintain aisles in stores
- Unsafe conditions in a parking lot or a commercial property
- Pool and playground tragedies
When you put your health into a medical professional's hands, the last thing you expect is to receive a substandard level of care. Unfortunately, this happens far too often. If a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist does not treat your case with a reasonable level of caution, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice. Not all mistakes that medical professionals make are considered malpractice, so it is important to speak with an experienced attorney before pressing forward with a lawsuit.
