Construction, Scaffold and Demolition Site Injuries
Construction and demolition sites are dangerous places to work. Laborers, electricians, carpenters, masons, plumbers, HVAC workers, machine and crane operators and other trades face the risk of serious construction injury or death. We have the experience to get construction workers and their families the money damages they deserve.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries
When property owners don’t do their job maintaining their property, or warning of hazardous conditions, anyone can become the victim of a slip, trip and fall accident that may cause devastating injuries or death. We will hold the property owner accountable and get you compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering and financial loss.
Car Service, Taxi and Limousine Collisions
When you take a private car service like Uber of Lyft, or a taxi or limousine, you want to arrive safely at your destination, but you may wind up in a serious accident. We know the special laws applicable to private cars, taxis and limousines and can get you fair compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering and economic losses.
Bus, Subway and Train Crashes
Bus, subway and train crashes can cause catastrophic injuries and death to many people at once. Train derailments and collisions in stations happen all too frequently. When buses turn over or collide with other vehicles, passengers can suffer severe injuries. We know how to get justice for victims of these accidents.
Lead Poisoning of Children
Lead poisoning can cause permanent brain damage to young children. That is why property owners must protect them from lead paint chips and other sources of lead contamination and pediatricians need to test them regularly. If your child has a positive lead test, call us to learn what can be done to get life-long monetary compensation for your child.
Police Misconduct and Wrongful Conviction
Police brutality, false arrest, and wrongful conviction happen all too frequently. When police use excessive force against citizens, they violate their duties and cause untold suffering. Prisoners who have been wrongfully convicted may spend years in jail before they are released. We know how to get fair compensation for violations of your civil rights by the police.
Sexual Harassment and Discrimination at Work
When you go to your job, you shouldn’t have to put up with sexual harassment or discrimination based on race, religion, age or sexual orientation. If you make a complaint or blow the whistle on misconduct, you can’t be retaliated against. When your rights are violated, we can sue to get you the compensation you deserve.
Bicycle and E-bike collisions
Bicyclists and E-bike riders can be injured in accidents as well as cause collisions with pedestrians. Bicyclists that are “doored” by vehicles can be seriously injured. E-bike riders who go down streets the wrong way can blind-side pedestrians. We can obtain substantial compensation for whoever is seriously injured due to a bicycle accident or E-Bike collisions.
Motorcyclists are at high risk for serious injuries and death when the are struck by other motor vehicles. They may be thrown from their motorcycles at high speed and run over. Despite wearing helmets and other protective gear, very serious injuries can occur. We have the experience to obtain substantial awards for motorcyclists for their injuries, pain, suffering and economic losses.
Pedestrians Hit by Vehicles
When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, catastrophic injuries can occur. Drivers who are speeding, failing to pay attention or failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians are a threat to both adults and children. The medical bills and lost wages are paid by the car owner’s insurance company, but in the serious cases, we recover substantial damages for injuries, pain and suffering
Defective Products and Devices
When a manufacturer puts a defective product on the market, anyone who uses it can be seriously injured or killed. Medical devices like pacemakers that fail, machinery that does not have proper safety guards, automobiles that have defective parts like airbags can all cause catastrophic injuries. We hold companies accountable when their defective products cause serious injuries or death.
Dangerous Prescription Drugs
When you take a prescription drug it’s because you want to get better. But sometimes, drug companies conceal how dangerous their products are, and terrible injuries occur. A defective drug that was prescribed to treat one illness winds up causing a side effect that makes the patient sicker or causes death. We can sue the drug company for substantial damages for putting a defective drug on the market.
Terrorism and Mass Disasters
Terrorism has cost the lives of thousands of people in New York and around the world. The Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm has represented families in terrorism and mass disaster cases, including 9/11, Libya (the Lockerbie crash) the Chiquita case involving terrorism in Colombia, and many others.
