Seeking Compensation for Catastrophic Accident Injuries
After a traumatic accident like a car crash or a scaffolding accident, you may be diagnosed with a brain injury right away, or the symptoms of brain damage may only be diagnosed after some time has passed. In either case, a brain injury can have serious, long-term consequences. If another person or company was responsible for the accident, it may be possible to hold that party liable through a personal injury claim.
At the law firm of Russo & Pedranghelu, we are in our fourth decade of protecting the rights and interests of injured people in Nassau and Suffolk counties. Our Long Island brain injury attorneys have the experience, knowledge, and resources to stand up to the insurance companies and pursue the fair compensation our clients deserve.
Identifying the Causes and Consequences of Brain Damage
Any time the head is subjected to a sudden blow or jarring motion, there is the potential for brain damage. Our firm represents clients who have suffered brain injuries in all types of incidents caused by the careless actions of others, including the following:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Slip-and-fall accidents
We strive to get our clients the money they need to pay for medical treatment and rehabilitation, as well as compensation for their pain and suffering and any loss of income they are likely to experience over the course of their lives. We work with physicians, economists, life care planners, and other qualified experts to document the causes and consequences of our clients’ injuries so they can get the money damages they deserve under New York law.
Helping Injured Workers Pursue Full and Fair Compensation
Construction sites are inherently dangerous. People injured in construction accidents often assume that their only recourse is to apply for workers’ compensation benefits. However, if your injuries were caused by the negligence of someone other than your direct employer, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit in addition to filing a workers’ compensation claim.
The federal government, New York state and New York City all have particularly stringent laws regarding construction site accidents. At Russo & Pedranghelu, our Long Island construction accident attorneys help clients understand OSHA and labor laws and regulations that are relevant to their circumstances. This empowers our clients to make educated decisions about their cases, including whether to file third-party liability lawsuits or initiate workers’ compensation claims.
Acting Quickly and Decisively After Construction Accidents
New York Labor Law 240 and other state laws are favorable to workers who suffer injuries as a result of ladder falls, scaffolding accidents, and other common types of job site accidents. However, it is still important to take action quickly so that witnesses will be able to remember the sequence of events and describe the accident accurately.
In addition to interviewing potential witnesses, our lawyers consult with construction experts and engineers to determine exactly when and where the negligence occurred. The information we gather allows us to build strong cases for clients who have fallen from ladders or scaffolding, suffered electrical injuries, or developed occupational illnesses because of the presence of toxic substances on the job.

Pursuing Claims Against Negligent Medical Providers
Not every law firm can take on medical malpractice cases. These are complex and costly legal matters that require knowledge, experience, and resources on the part of the attorneys who handle them. At the law firm of Russo & Pedranghelu, our Long Island medical malpractice attorneys are experienced at handling and understand the legal complexities associated with, cases involving medical negligence on the part of physicians, dentists, and other health care providers.
Our experienced personal injury trial lawyers consult with an extensive network of legal and medical specialists to help us develop the strongest possible cases for our clients. We investigate each case thoroughly, obtaining the client’s medical records, consulting with medical experts, and interviewing any potential witnesses. We ensure that each case is fully developed so that the client receives maximum compensation for his or her medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and other costs associated with the illness or injury.
Sensitive to the Circumstances Faced by Each Client
Medical malpractice cases are often heartbreaking. Birth injuries, amputations, and unexpected deaths are upsetting, tragic, and distressing, leaving individuals and families devastated. Our attorneys are caring and compassionate legal professionals who know that a medical malpractice case is not just about compensation. We take the time to understand the full extent of our clients’ losses.

Because of our experience and knowledge, we are often able to anticipate the insurance companies’ tactics in medical malpractice cases. Whether a case goes to trial or is settled during negotiations, our insight into the other side’s strategies often helps our clients prevail.
Helping Injured Bikers Pursue Fair Compensation
Because motorcyclists do not have the same physical protections as people riding in cars and trucks, motorcycle accident victims often suffer particularly serious injuries.

In New York, motorcyclists are not eligible for medical benefits from no-fault auto insurance. If you do not have health insurance, your personal injury claim may be your one chance to get the medical treatment you need to recover from your motorcycle injuries.
Our firm assists clients who have suffered all types of injuries — including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other catastrophic injuries — in motorcycle accidents. We are often able to help our clients find doctors who will treat them in exchange for liens on their lawsuits. We also help the families of fatal motorcycle accident victims pursue wrongful death claims. We handle these cases with compassion and dedication to getting the best possible results for our clients.
Pursuing Fair Compensation From Negligent Property Owners
Legal matters commonly referred to as slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall claims are part of an area of the law known as premises liability law.

Premises liability cases are often complex, requiring care and persistence on the part of an attorney.
