Practice Areas

Workers Compensation Workers Compensation

If you were recently hurt on the job, you are not alone. Every single day in the state of New York, about 584 employees sustain an injury on the job or develop an occupational illness, reports the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And no industry is exempt. Workers are injured in all types of work environments from mining and construction to retail and healthcare. Even when you are well-trained and use the best safety practices, accidents can and still do happen. For help obtaining your benefits, call a workers’ compensation lawyer on Long Island at Goldstein & Bashner today: 516-222-4000.

Bus Accidents Bus Accidents

Victims of bus accidents (or their families in fatal cases) have the right to seek compensation for damages either via an insurance claim or lawsuit. The guidelines, time limits, and elements vary case-by-case, depending on the type of carrier, whether other parties were involved, and which legal avenue the victim pursues. For help pursuing a settlement for your losses, call Goldstein & Bashner at 516-222-4000 to set up a consultation with a Long Island bus accident lawyer.

Truck Accidents Truck Accidents

On any given day in New York, you will probably notice dozens of large trucks on the highways of Long Island, most of which complete routes without any issues. However, when a large truck is involved in a roadway accident, it can be devastating. If you or your loved one was involved a truck accident, speak to a Long Island truck accident lawyer who specifically handles cases involving large semi-trucks.

Bicycle Accidents Bicycle Accidents

Given the nature of a bicycle accident, cyclists often sustain serious or catastrophic injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord damage, shattered bones, internal injuries, and amputations. New York laws provide recovery options for bicycle accident victims, but the state imposes strict time limits on when you can file a claim. 

Pool Accidents Pool Accidents

Swimming pools are a hotspot for summer fun, but are they also a place of risk. An estimated 3,500 people died in drowning accidents each year between 2005 and 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Even non-fatal accidents and near-drowning can cause serious, long-term injuries, such as brain damage and spinal cord damage. When a tragic accident strikes, victims or family members should speak to a Long Island swimming pool accident and drowning lawyer about their legal options for recovering compensation for damages. 

Uninsured Motorist Accidents Uninsured Motorist Accidents
If the other driver was uninsured and you suffered serious injuries that cause damages beyond what your own insurance covers, you may still be able to recover compensation through your uninsured motorist coverage. You may also be able to file a lawsuit. Our accident lawyers at Goldstein & Bashner can help you explore and exercise your options.
Distracted Driving Accidents Distracted Driving Accidents
Cases of distracted driving are becoming more common, and consequently so are accidents caused by distracted driving. If another driver was texting or otherwise distracted and caused your wreck, the attorneys at Goldstein & Bashner can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Head-on Accidents Head-on Accidents
A head-on collision can lead to severe injuries. In many of these cases, one of the drivers was distracted or intoxicated, causing him to cross the center lane and collide with an oncoming vehicle. Goldstein & Bashner helps victims of these accidents  hold the at-fault party responsible and collect compensation they need for their medical bills, lost wages, and other short- and long-term damages often associated with head-on accidents.
Rear-end Accident Rear-end Accident
If another driver rear-ended you, it can cause serious injuries, including whiplash. Our Long Island rear-end accident lawyers can help you get compensation to cover your medical bills and other damages. We collect evidence of fault and damages to prove your entitlement to a fair settlement.
Whiplash Whiplash
Whiplash injuries are entitled to recover compensation for their short- and long-term damages. Our Long Island whiplash lawyers help victims of neck injuries and whiplash get the evidence they need to prove the existence and significance of their injuries.
Slip and Fall Injuries / Premise Accidents Slip and Fall Injuries / Premise Accidents

Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents can lead to painful injuries.
