NYC Personal Injury Attorneys Stand by Your Side

Serving all five boroughs of NYC, Long Island, Westchester, Putnam and Duchess Counties

Welcome to the personal injury law office of Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson. We are a nationally known personal injury law firm, located in New York, with lawyers who concentrate in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases arising out of auto accidents, construction accidents, plane, train and motorcycle accidents, and any other case where a serious personal injury was caused by someone’s negligence. Many of our clients are NYC firefighters who were injured in the line of duty. We also represent thousands of sick first responders and local residents who are survivors of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks.

For more than 100 collective years, the personal injury attorneys at the New York law firm of Barasch McGarry have been seeking justice for victims of personal injury and wrongful death throughout new York and the United States.

Accident victims who file personal injury claims may be eligible for damages, which may include, but are not limited to financial compensation for loss of past and future income, pain and suffering, emotional distress and permanent disability. Families of the deceased can file a wrongful death civil law suit, which can help them recover damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, mental anguish, loss of companionship, loss of support and services, lost net accumulations (savings the decedent would have had), medical costs and other expenses.

Personal Injury cases, especially catastrophic injury cases, can often be complex, lengthy and costly to take to trial. You need an experienced law firm with the tools, technology, resources and financial capability to take on large corporations and insurance companies. Making the right decision on your legal representation could have a major impact on the outcome of your case.

We are committed to providing old-fashioned legal service along with the most current research and the latest in technology. Our cases are self-funded and we endeavor to work with the most qualified experts in their respective fields.
