The Law Office of Todd J. Krouner, P.C. also handles cases on behalf of families whose loved ones suffered accidental deaths from severe injuries. Compassion, understanding, and excellence are some of the traits that a person should look for in a wrongful death lawyer.

Every year in America, nearly 100,000 people suffer serious brain injuries that require medical treatment and affect their ability to perform everyday activities. Any kind of trauma to the head or neck region can cause the brain to bruise, bleed, tear, or swell. Here are some things to look out for when evaluating an accident victim’s potential for brain injuries and if any of these symptoms are present soon after an accident or injury, you should seek immediate medical attention:
- Unusual tiredness or sluggishness
- Nausea & dizziness
- Short-term memory loss
The Law Office of Todd J. Krouner, P.C. has successfully handled several brain injury cases, which pose unique litigation challenges because many victims do not appear physically injured despite suffering brain damage.
Construction & Work Place Accidents
The Law Office of Todd J. Krouner, P.C. has a keen understanding and respect for workers involved in the areas of construction, renovation and demolition. However, such hard working people are often exposed to dangers and hazards on the job that lead to unnecessary injuries and death. This specific area of the law requires a legal team that not only knows the sizable statutory and legal principles that apply to this area, but also understands the practical effects of a serious injury in a New York construction accident to a wage earner.
Under New York law, those in charge of the construction site and the property owner are responsible for providing adequate safety measures to protect such hard-working people. We have repeatedly shown our level of expertise and resources in this area by obtaining substantial verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.
Premises Safety and Building Security
A business owner has a duty to provide a safe place for its employees to work and its customers to visit. Since perpetrators of violent crimes are often not caught (or are usually judgment proof when they are caught), the victims will occasionally turn to the property owner for compensation for their injuries. If a business is in a high crime area, the landowner may be required to take special safety measures such as hiring security personnel or installing security systems.
A landowner’s duty may arise when the criminal conduct of a third party is the foreseeable result of a landowner’s negligence. When criminal conduct of a third party is foreseeable, the landowner has a duty to prevent injuries to victims if it reasonably appears or should appear to them that other innocent persons may be injured on the property. Failure to do so may result in liability.
