Experienced Lawyers Assisting Victims of Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury in Brooklyn
What is a personal injury?
Personal injury is a legal term used to mean any injury, illness or acquired condition that results from negligence, recklessness, and carelessness. Kadanoff & Kadanoff, PLLC is a full service Brooklyn personal injury law firm; our attorneys are qualified to represent clients seeking damages for any type of personal injury.
Although a significant portion of our business is devoted to Brooklyn medical malpractice cases — a subcategory of personal injury — we have successfully handled a full range of injury cases over more than five decades practicing law.
Our practice areas
Medical malpractice occurs when the negligence of a physician, surgeon, nurse, dentist, hospital or other type of health care facility leads to injury, illness or death. To prove medical negligence, our attorneys must show that the medical professional or facility failed to meet an accepted standard of medical care because of unreasonable errors and carelessness. These may include failing to take a patient’s medical history, prescribing a fatal dosage of medication, misusing a medical instrument or hiring uncertified doctors or nurses. Common types of medical malpractice cases include the following:
Other areas of personal injury
In addition to medical malpractice, Brooklyn attorneys from Kadanoff & Kadanoff, PLLC handle a wide range of personal injury cases. Traffic accidents and cases involving slips, trips and falls — known more formally as premises liability accidents — are among the most common causes of personal injuries. Whether you need help deciding what to do after an accident leaves you injured, or have general personal injury questions that need answering, our attorneys can help you.
Wrongful death cases arise any time someone dies from a personal injury. Typically, only immediate family members of the deceased may file claims for wrongful death in New York.
