Summary

I dedicate my practice to helping the injured throughout the Bronx and New York City. My clients enjoy access not only to top-tier legal talent, but to the resources that only a well-established and well-financed law firm focusing exclusively on personal injury and medical malpractice can provide. Every client of mine has my cell phone number, and can contact me 24/7.

When I accept a case, I ensure that the client receives as close to the full value of their injuries as is possible, and prepare every single case to stand up at trial and on appeal. While this does help me settle cases for very close to full value, I am not a lawyer who cuts corners in hopes of achieving a quick and cheap settlement like so many lawyers unfortunately have made a career of doing.

Prospective clients may contact me without fear of incurring even a penny in charges; I offer truly free consultations, and promise to give you an honest and thorough evaluation of your case, even if I ultimately decline to accept it. Once a case is accepted, clients need not fear bills, as I offer to pay 100% of all costs and expenses throughout the pendency of every case, and only recoup the money I have spent if I win your case, whether by settlement or obtaining a judgment through a verdict at trial.

I offer clients access to a network of highly skilled experts to ensure that every element of their case is proven properly. Whether the case requires specialized medical opinions, or sophisticated financial analyses to prove an economic loss, clients can rest assured that no stone will be left unturned, and every element of damages that they have suffered will be demonstrated clearly and effectively to a jury at trial.

I have achieved millions of dollars in results for clients both at trial and at the negotiating table. My reputation for aggressive and zealous advocacy has been recognized by my peers year after year, as they have selected me to be a "Super Lawyer" every year since 2016.

Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered

Q. Employee causes a car accident during work hours due to being under the influence of narcotics is the company liable?
A: As with most legal questions, the answer is "it depends". Under New York Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 388, owners and operators of vehicles are jointly and severally liable if the vehicle is involved in an accident under most circumstances. If the employee had permission to drive the vehicle at the time of the accident, and the company owned it, the company is most likely liable for the accident. Also, under the doctrine of respondeat superior, an employer is vicariously liable for the negligent and tortious actions of its employee if the employee injures someone while acting in the course of his or her employment. Thus, if the employee who caused this accident was on the clock at the time of the accident, and especially if he or she was driving a company car, the employer is most likely liable for any damage caused by the employee. Whether or not the employee was under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident is generally an aggravating factor, rather than a dispositive legal issue. That means that it only makes things worse for the employer if the employer is liable under VTL 388 and/or respondeat superior as cited above. Application of liability under those doctrines does not turn on whether or not the employee was under the influence, or whether the employer knew about that at the time of the accident. So, in sum, it is very likely that the employer will be responsible for the damage caused by the employee in this situation if he/she was operating a company car at the time, or was acting in the course of his employment when the accident occurred. The fact that the employee was high at the time will only make matters worse for the employer, especially if the employer was aware of the employees penchant for drug use on the job.
