Personal Injury

An injury has left you and your family seeking answers to critical questions. How will you pay your bills? How will you get the treatment you need to make as full a recovery as possible? How can you hold the negligent driver accountable for his or her actions? You need a law firm you can trust to provide you with the answers.

In New York City, that law firm is O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP. We have won hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, maximizing compensation for injury victims and their families. Our focus is on helping you rebuild your life after an accident, and making sure you have the resources you need to move forward.

What Will Our Attorneys Do For You?

Whether you were injured on a construction site, at work, on the road, on in a building or on a defective sidewalk or you have lost a family member to tragedy, we will act quickly to investigate and determine who is at fault. Then, we will pursue a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for your medical costs, your lost wages, your pain and suffering, and any additional related damages.

Medical Malpractice

Health care professionals, such as doctors, nurses and pharmacists, are required to provide competent care and meet the standards set by the law. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable through a medical malpractice claim. If you believe you or a loved one has suffered harm as a result of malpractice, we can help you identify your rights and aggressively pursue your legal options.

Dangerous And Defective Products

Thousands of people every year suffer injuries as a result of defective and/or dangerous products. From prescription drugs to appliances, products that are poorly designed, manufactured or marketed are causing harm. We have successfully represented many victims who have been injured by such products, and we can help you avoid suffering any further harm.

“O’Dwyer & Bernstien has helped me in several different situations over the last 12 years that I’ve lived in NYC. They’re my go-to firm because they always obtain the results that I need and deserve. They’re also located in downtown Manhattan, which makes them very convenient. The office and people that work there are exactly what you’d expect from a top tier law firm in the world’s greatest city.”

“When I got hurt in a traffic accident while riding my bike in New York City, my friend suggested I speak to O’Dwyer & Bernstien. Upon my initial phone conversation with a lawyer from the firm I was impressed by his courtesy, quick return phone calls and concise explanation of the legal tactics available to me. After meeting face to face with him, I decided immediately to retain O’Dwyer & Bernstien to represent me in my personal injury case. I was very happy with my attorney and with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend O’Dwyer & Bernstien to anyone seeking legal representation.”

“I retained O’Dwyer & Bernstien on the recommendation of a friend. I was immediately impressed by the firm’s experience and reputation in personal injury law. From the start, my ODB attorney walked me through the process, answered all my questions, explained everything clearly, kept me updated regularly and always promptly returned my telephone calls and emails. My attorney was knowledgeable, professional, courteous and diligent. My case moved through the court system quickly. As trial neared, the insurance company saw that my attorney was experienced and thoroughly prepared to try my case to verdict. As a result, the insurance company caved and settled my case for the full limits of the insurance policy. I love my ODB attorney!”

“When I was hurt on the job I had nowhere to turn for help. I had been working as an electrician’s helper, but my boss was not insured and he had no license to do electrical work. I had just had a new baby girl and Con Ed was going to shut off my lights. A friend told me to call O’Dwyer & Bernstien. They took action right away and got great money for my case. ODB helped me get my life back on track. I will always be grateful.”
