Motor Vehicle Accidents

Collisions out on the road can happen with no warning. Despite happening so quickly, motor vehicle accidents can result in complications that last a lifetime when innocent drivers and passengers are injured as a result of negligence of others.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a car accident anywhere in New York, you need a lawyer capable of aggressive representation and attentive service. You will find just what you are looking for at O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP. Our firm has earned a tremendous reputation for our ability to get top dollar for our clients.

We represent people who have suffered a variety of serious injuries in car accidents such as fractures, scarring or disfigurement, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries and other permanent limitations. Whether you were in a car, a truck, an RV, on a motorcycle, a bicycle or on foot, we can help you maximize your compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings and other damages.

Uninsured And Underinsured Motorists

Even if the person who caused your injuries lacks adequate insurance, we may still be able to help you. You are entitled to no-fault coverage through your own policy and may also have coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorists. There are crucial deadlines for no-fault coverage, so it is critical to speak to us as soon as possible.

Subway And Bus Accidents

Due to the involvement of agencies under the jurisdiction of New York City or New York State, these cases have short, strict deadlines to file claims. That’s why it is so important to quickly contact attorneys like us who understand the legal requirements for seeking compensation from municipalities and government agencies. We can bring claims involving transportation entities such as the Long Island Rail Road, North-Metro Railroad, NYC Transit Authority and the MTA.

Their First Offer Is Not Good Enough For You And Your Family

Insurance companies are out to make money. What incentive do they have to give you what you deserve without a fight? None. It is in your best interest to speak to us before you consider any offers from the insurance company or speak to one of its adjusters. We will make sure you understand your rights and let the insurance company know you mean business.

To learn more about how we can help you get what you deserve, contact us today for a free consultation. We can go to you if your injuries prevent you from coming to us.


“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.”
