Our Common Litigation Practice Areas
We are well aware of the many ways negligence, malpractice, and greed can lead to terrible consequences and we understand the physical, emotional, and economic damage that may have been done to you and your family. You can trust Nagel Rice attorneys to litigate and negotiate for your best interest with skills honed by decades of experience.
While most of us depend on modern medicine to keep us alive and healthy, many of us know all too well the mistakes made by physicians and other healthcare personnel that can have disastrous consequences. An incorrect dose of medication or anesthesia, a prescription or surgical error, or a misstep in the emergency room or delivery room can cause long-term, life-altering injury. Patients who suffer the ill effects of such avoidable negligence may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability. In worst-case scenarios, their loved ones deserve wrongful death damages.
It takes a very short time, often just an instant, for someone else’s lack of attention, negligence or recklessness to cause you or your loved ones grave personal injury. Whether the personal injury results from a car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian or mass transit accident, occurs at a construction site, is the result of a product that has been mislabeled or contaminated, or happens because property has not been safely maintained, the results can be devastating, even fatal.
At Nagel Rice, we put your needs above all else, fighting ferociously for justice for you and your family, realizing that you need us to take over your cause while you concentrate on healing from the physical and emotional trauma you have undergone.
All of our lawyers are up to speed on federal, state, and local laws, and are agile courtroom advocates. If you are involved in business, professional or legal malpractice litigation, we are well-prepared to assist you. Likewise, if you are facing the challenge of an environmental, estate and trust, or whistleblower lawsuit, our talented courtroom attorneys are ready to support you.
At Nagel Rice we have a track record of winning some of the largest class action lawsuits in New York and New Jersey history. We pride ourselves on standing up against huge companies and protecting the thousands of people who they have seriously harmed financially.
