The attorneys at Lipsitz & Ponterio represent individuals who have been seriously injured as a result of asbestos exposure (mesothelioma and lung cancer), motor vehicle accidents, defective products and other accidents occurring at home or at work.

Personal injury law provides people injured or killed by a third party’s negligence the opportunity to receive compensation for their damages.

Catastrophic injuries resulting from another person’s negligence or unreasonable conduct include injuries from:

Asbestos exposure (mesothelioma and lung cancer);

Motor vehicle accidents;

Product liability/defective products;

Medical malpractice;

Child Sexual Abuse (Child Victims Act);

Birth Injuries;

Lead Paint;

Traumatic Brain Injuries; and

Toxic Substances.

It is very important immediate legal action be taken. New York State law imposes strict time deadlines on personal injury actions, and if you fail to act under the legal time limitations, you may be barred from ever pursuing your claim. In certain cases, New York State law requires that an injured person give “notice” of their claim within a specific period of time from the date of injury or the claim will be barred.
