If there is one thing we must constantly do, it is to take care of ourselves. We know that New York is a big city and that the borough of Queens is part of a constant commercial activity between different communities that have made this corner of the world their home. We are talking about a cosmopolitan city, where motorized vehicles abound, people moving from side to side, the rush, the speed, and all those distractions that sometimes lead to not being fully involved in the present moment.
We will go over the many types of personal injury cases we handle, the compensation available for accident claims, and how you can get in touch with our team of expert personal injury lawyers in Queens. Allow us to be your champions, confidants, and collaborators in your quest for justice. We can overcome difficulties and work toward a brighter future if we work together.
However, before we begin to evaluate personal injuries caused by accidents, we would like to emphasize that prevention is of vital importance. We do not want our brothers and sisters to go around the city disconnected from reality, distracted from their surroundings, or blinded by their thoughts.
Please take this into consideration: Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it. (Matthew 6:26-27).
Do you see? The almighty is always taking care of you. But if you do not do your part by taking care of yourself at every moment, by being responsible in each of your actions, by being aware that a negligent act on your part could affect others, then you could unnecessarily expose yourself to dangers that affect that permanent care that all beings receive.
Take care of your environment, take care of every step you take in the city, and carefully evaluate the consequences of your actions and your words. This is the only way to reduce the risk of getting involved in tragic situations.
We at The Ward Law have evaluated hundreds of cases over the years, and we can say that we have mostly observed that people who act negligently forget these basic principles. Perhaps it is stress, distraction, or living deluded by their ego all the time, but people who act negligently go through periods of disconnection with themselves and do not fully measure the effect of their actions on others.
Take care of yourself, and the creator will have an easier job.
Basic History of Queens and Hispanic Immigration to the Area
The United States is a country that was born by immigrants. Queens, New York, is no exception to this principle. From the great waves of Italian immigrants that came to the Atlantic coast to the new times of immigration from Latin America to this part of the continent, the borough of Queens has been characterized by a vibrant worldwide community.
Our Latin American brothers and sisters have been arriving in this city driven by dreams and escaping from injustices, tyrannical governments, and opportunities that did not come to them in their native lands. Over the years, the realization of these dreams has been coming. Many of the immigrants became merchants, found better jobs, and sent their children to college.
This is the case of Jorge, a Mexican client who proudly told us that after many years of work and after going through thousands of painful experiences at the time of immigrating, he managed to send his son to New York University.
And just like Jorge's story, we have the story of thousands of immigrants who have made this nation the country of opportunities and the land of freedom. Those who deny this great truth usually live blinded in positions that hide a xenophobic desire.
We advocate for the integration of our community; we advocate that language should never be an impediment to access to justice. We understand how difficult it is to be separated from the family and start from scratch very far from home. That's why being able to serve clients in Queens always reminds us of those dreams and years of struggle of hundreds of immigrants who did not give up.
Queens experienced extensive development throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Immigration from various parts of the world led to transformative changes. In the area, new communities emerged and grew. The rich mosaic of Queens is comprised of contributions from multiple communities, with the Hispanic community being a key player.
Hispanic immigration to Queens dates back to the 19th century, with a considerable presence of Puerto Rican immigration to the entire area.
In more recent times, Queens has become a hub for immigrants from countries such as Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Ecuador, and other Central and South American nations. As the Hispanic population continued to grow, so did its influence on the borough's culture, cuisine, and community life.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Take
We handle a wide spectrum of personal injury cases, assisting clients in obtaining justice and reasonable recompense for their injuries and losses. For instance:
Car accidents: Unfortunately, widespread in Queens, often resulting in serious injuries and property damage. Our professional personal injury lawyers in Queens, NY, are here to guide you through the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve, whether you were involved in a rear-end collision, an intersection accident, or a hit-and-run occurrence.
Bike Accidents: With its numerous bike lanes and cycling enthusiasts, Queens is a popular destination for bike riders. However, due to the absence of rider protection, bike accidents can result in significant injuries. If you have been hurt in a bike accident, our attorneys will work hard to hold the responsible person accountable for your injuries and damages.
Catastrophic injuries: Catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, and severe burns, can have life-changing consequences. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and ongoing care. Our team is experienced in handling complex catastrophic injury cases and will fight to secure the compensation necessary to support your recovery.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists are vulnerable on the road, making them more susceptible to serious injuries in accidents. This type of accident can involve a higher level of risk and, therefore, more serious injuries. When it comes to higher speeds and differences in weight on the part of motorcycles with other heavier vehicles, motorcyclists should take the necessary care when moving through the city.
Truck Accidents: Commercial truck accidents can have devastating consequences due to the size and weight of these vehicles. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, our experienced attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to determine liability and pursue fair compensation from the trucking company and other parties responsible for the collision.
Pedestrian Accidents: Queens, with its busy streets and sidewalks, sees a significant number of pedestrian accidents each year. If you have been struck by a vehicle while walking or crossing the street, our dedicated team will work diligently to protect your rights and seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries and related damages.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): A traumatic brain injury occurs when a quick jolt or blow to the head interferes with the brain's normal function. TBIs can have long-term cognitive, physical, and emotional consequences. If you or a loved one has experienced a TBI as a result of someone else's negligence, our caring attorneys will fight diligently to guarantee you obtain the required medical care and compensation to assist your rehabilitation and future well-being.
Whiplash Injuries: Whiplash may not always seem serious at first, but we understand the pain and discomfort it can cause. We will work diligently to ensure that you receive proper medical treatment and are compensated for any missed work days or restrictions caused.

Types of Compensation Available for Accident Claims in Queens
We have a deep understanding of the complexities of accident claims, and we are committed to fighting for the maximum compensation on behalf of our clients. Let us share with you some examples of possible compensation:
- Medical expenses: After an accident, medical bills can pile up quickly, causing financial stress. Compensation can cover current and future medical treatments, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and any necessary medical equipment or supplies.
- Lost wages: Injuries can prevent you from working, resulting in a loss of income. Compensation can help replace wages you've lost due to time away from work, as well as future earning potential if the injuries have a long-term impact on your ability to work.
- Pain and suffering: Physical injuries often come with emotional and mental distress. Compensation can recognize the pain and suffering you've endured and help you find comfort during this difficult time.
- Property Damage: Auto accidents can cause significant damage to your vehicle or personal property. Compensation can cover repair or replacement costs to restore your property to its pre-accident condition.
- Loss of consortium: In cases where an accident results in the loss of companionship or the support of a spouse, compensation may be awarded to the affected family member.
- Punitive damages: In cases where the actions of the responsible party were particularly reckless or malicious, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar behavior in the future.
- Wrongful death damages: In the tragic event of a wrongful death caused by an accident, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional suffering.
Remember that each case will have to be evaluated in a particular way. Many times, compensations that could be requested for one type of case do not apply for another certain context. Because of that, at The Ward Law, we carry out a detailed analysis of each situation in order to find the necessary legal arguments to defend the interests of our clients.
