Car and Truck Accident Awards in the Lockport area
Lockport sits at the intersection of State Routes 31 and 78, two major truck and auto routes that connect the communities near Lake Ontario with the cities of Buffalo, Niagara Falls and others along the Niagara River. Serious car and truck accidents are common here, and local residents need to know where to turn for representation in the event that they or their loved ones experience injury as a result.
Brown Chiari has secured numerous auto accident awards for clients in the Lockport area, including $600,000 for a motorcyclist injured in an accident on a poorly maintained thoroughfare and a $5.1 million verdict for a motorist who sustained serious back injuries in a high-speed collision.
Work With a Lockport Defective Product Attorney
With the Erie Canal coursing through its heart and companies like General Motors employing hundreds of highly skilled workers within its borders, Lockport has a well-established industrial base. While this is great for the families who call this beautiful town home, it increases the likelihood that local residents will sustain injuries as a result of defective industrial machinery, vehicle components and other products.
Regardless of whether they occur in the workplace or at home, Brown Chiari aggressively pursues claims against the manufacturers of defective products. We also specialize in claims against the makers of defective drugs and medical devices, including hip implants, knee implants, transvaginal mesh, IUDs and more.
Workers’ Compensation Experts in Niagara County, New York
The workers of Lockport must also contend with injuries and illnesses that affect their ability to work. For more than 100 years, New York State law has provided workers who are injured on the job with financial support for their medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. Unfortunately, many employers fail to uphold their end of the bargain and carry adequate workers’ compensation insurance. At Brown Chiari, we relentlessly uphold the rights of workers to see justice—and just compensation—for their injuries.
