Dedicated To Making You Stronger
Parents must be constantly vigilant of their children’s safety and wellbeing. Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen, and kids may sustain serious injuries, or perhaps worse. Under New York law, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice injuries to children does not toll until the child reached the age of 18. However, a parent cannot bring suit on behalf of a child past 10 years from the date of the accident in an infant malpractice case. You should consult with our office about whether your child has a legitimate and sustainable claim.
Our true passion lies in representing injured individuals and their families against major insurance companies. Our founder Avi Cohen has successfully settled and/or tried numerous cases, both large and small.
Our firm was founded on the principle that injured plaintiffs and their families should have access to the same quality of legal representation that large insurance companies receive from the larger firms. That’s why A. Cohen Law Firm, P.C. is the premier personal injury law firm in the New York Tri-State area.
Personal Injury Matters
Negligence is one of the most common tort claims. Typically, negligence occurs when one party fails to act as an ordinary prudent person would. In other words, an individual or entity acts carelessly, without regard for the safety or wellbeing of others, thereby causing injury to person or property. To prevail on a negligence claim, a plaintiff must demonstrate: (1) that defendant owed a duty to plaintiff, (2) breach thereof, (3) injury proximately resulting, and (4) damages.
The elements for a fraud claim are that: (1) defendant made a representation as to a material fact; (2) such representation was false; (3) defendant intended to deceive plaintiff; (4) plaintiff believed and justifiably relied upon the statement and was induced by it to engage in a certain course of conduct; and (5) as a result of such reliance that the plaintiff sustained pecuniary loss.
