Personal Injury
When an injury is the result of the negligence of another party, the injured person may be entitled to a personal injury law suit. At Lozner & Mastropietro, we handle a variety of personal injury cases, including:

Airline Accidents : Runway accidents, small plane crashes and other aviation accidents resulting from pilot error and defective equipment often cause devastating injury or even death.

Dog Attacks: New York law imposes strict liability for owners and handlers of dogs, which holds them legally responsible for medical expenses for dog bite victims.

Slip, Trip And Fall Accidents : It is the responsibility of owners and property managers to maintain premises that are reasonably safe and free from dangerous conditions.

Assault And Negligent Security : Owners and managers of apartment buildings, hotels, shopping malls and parking facilities are responsible for maintaining a reasonable level of security to prevent assaults.

Product Liability and Defective Products : Manufacturers and distributors are responsible for injuries or deaths caused by dangerous products. A product is considered defective if it is unreasonably dangerous to the ordinary user.

Medical Malpractice and Hospital Negligence
Medical professionals and hospital administrators are expected to provide services that meet a professional standard of care, when that medical care falls below what is considered the accepted standard of care, patients may have a medical malpractice and hospital negligence case. We handle cases involving:

Emergency Room Errors : In a high-pressure environment such as an emergency room, critical errors may be made that result in the permanent injury to or death of a patient.

Surgery Errors : Physician error and negligence can result in complications, devastating injuries or death in almost any type of surgery. A patient cannot rely on a doctor or hospital to admit when a mistake has been made and should have an experienced medical malpractice attorney review the medical records.

Failure To Diagnose Cancer : Misdiagnosis of treatable cancer that delays treatment until it is no longer effective is considered medical malpractice.

Anesthesia Errors : Failure to properly administer anesthesia or monitor a patient can lead to severe pain, a coma or death.

Failure to Diagnose Heart Attacks : Doctors and emergency room nurses have a duty to recognize early symptoms of a heart attack and treat them before significant damage is done to your body.

Birth Injuries: A birth injury may occur when a physician, a midwife or a nurse does not react quickly and sufficiently to signals of patient or fetal distress or when substandard care is provided during the labor and delivery process. Some examples of birth injuries include cerebral palsy which is a permanent condition resulting from brain damage and Erb’s Palsy which is damage to the nerves of an infant’s arm and hand.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
Insurance companies try to avoid paying reasonable motor vehicle accident injury and wrongful death claims. If you were injured in an automobile or truck accident, our attorneys will fight hard to ensure you receive full and fair compensation for your loss. At Lozner & Mastropietro, we handle a variety of motor vehicle accident cases, including:

Hit And Run Accidents : If you have been injured or a loved one killed in a hit & run car accident, it is important to contact an experienced attorney who will take immediate action to recover the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents: A motorcycle crash often results in serious and catastrophic injury or death to the rider.

Bus And Taxi Cab Accidents: Accidents involving a bus or taxi cab can leave a passenger severely injured. The driver of the bus or taxi cab, the bus or taxi cab company, or the other motorist that caused the accident, may be liable for damages. New York City agencies often operate bus companies. There is a short time limit within which to notify these agencies of a claim. Contact us immediately.
