Despite being a responsible person, just one tragic moment can change your life forever. When someone’s careless behavior, or an employer’s failure to maintain a safe work environment, causes you to suffer a serious injury, the repercussions can affect you and your family for years to come. Physical pain and lengthy medical treatment often cause trauma victims to miss work and lose vital income. In some cases, the incident may even result in the death of a loved one. The emotional and financial stress can be overwhelming, and victims and their families may not know where to turn for help.
Experienced Representation That Gets Results for New York Injury Victims

Through perseverance and determination, our legal team built an exceptional track record of verdicts and settlements for clients with all types of injury and wrongful death claims, especially those enduring construction and maritime injuries.
Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve After an Accident
When an accident and injury occurs, victims have rights. Whether your injury was caused by a private citizen or a big company, it can be possible to obtain compensation for medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Those working in the construction and maritime fields face unique risks, and the law addresses these injuries differently. That’s why our legal team offers premiere representation tailored specifically to construction workers, seamen, fishermen, longshoremen, dock workers, and many more.
Too often, accident victims aren’t fully aware of their rights, or they fall victim a second time to big insurance companies ignoring their injuries or pushing to settle their claim for less than it is worth. These insurance companies will do everything in their power to avoid paying for the damages you have suffered. The lawyers at Hofmann & Schweitzer are trained and experienced litigators who can beat them at their own game. Lawyers from our firm will work with the insurance companies, employers and other opposing parties to obtain a favorable settlement in your case. If these negotiation attempts are unsuccessful, we will fight for you in the courtroom.
