W&L is proud of this opportunity to help our Long Island neighbors receive the care and attention they deserve. We want to make sure all our clients have access to experienced personal injury attorneys. This goes for every practice area Weitz & Luxenberg oversees.
Long Islanders Threatened by Asbestos Exposure
Weitz & Luxenberg was founded in the mid-1980s. Since then, we have been handling asbestos related lung cancer and mesothelioma legal cases. For years, many New Yorkers have been exposed to asbestos through their work in construction; building demolition, renovation, and maintenance; ship building and repair; and many other industrial fields.
Another more recent area of concern involves talcum powder contaminated with asbestos. For decades, manufacturers have promoted and marketed certain baby powder products as safe and healthy for infants. The result is both children and parents who used these products have begun developing mesothelioma and other serious illnesses, such as ovarian cancer.
Our Attorneys Want to Help You
W&L is pleased to expand our reach to continue to help clients in Long Island recover appropriate compensation. Whether you have developed lung cancer, ovarian cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, or another asbestos exposure related condition, we are doubling down in our efforts to help you secure the compensation you deserve.
Our attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable. We have made it a point to stand up against some of the largest corporate offenders for almost 40 years, and we have no intention of backing down now.
W&L has won many lawsuits for clients who live in Long Island. We hope opening an office there may make us more convenient for clients.
Lawsuits for Defective Drugs and Medical Devices
Sometimes manufacturers of drugs and medical devices create unsafe or otherwise defective products. When they do, the complications can be significant. They can even be life-threatening.
Our attorneys are prepared to take on some of the largest pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers in the country. W&L attorneys often serve in key lawsuit leadership positions and oversee complex multidistrict litigation.
Protecting Consumer and Stopping Environmental Pollution
Everyone lives in a shared environment, whether nationally, regionally, or locally. We all must also make purchases for ourselves, our families, our homes, and our businesses. When all goes well, we may not take much notice.
However, when we discover our groundwater is polluted and unsafe to drink, when the air we breathe is contaminated, and when the products we buy malfunction, the consequences can be devastating.
Our attorneys want to protect you when you’ve been taken advantage of by large corporations. For example, we work on your behalf if you’ve been a victim of a data breach, or unfair banking or loan procedures.
W&L has been front and center during some of the most severe crises, nationally, but also regionally and locally. Our team wants to make sure Long Islanders receive the resolution and compensation you deserve.
Suing for Accidents and Medical Malpractice
We’re looking forward to helping Long Islanders who have been injured due to both the actions and inactions of others.
W&L has filed thousands of lawsuits for personal injury accident and medical malpractice cases in the New York area. Our dedicated Long Island team of 20 is prepared to handle a variety of accident cases including vehicle, construction, and school accidents.
We also file lawsuits for general negligence and medical malpractice cases. Not taking appropriate action can lead to serious, life-threatening complications, particularly in medical malpractice cases. In worst-case scenarios, medical and general negligence, in addition to personal injury accidents, can lead to death.
Our firm has been headquartered in New York City for close to four decades. We know New York laws and regulations inside and out. We are also very familiar with the state’s court systems. We know how to navigate the complexities often occurring with negligence and medical malpractice cases.
As we have done for thousands of clients over the years, we continue our efforts to secure the best outcomes possible for our Long Island clients.
