New York's Premiere Plaintiff's Personal Injury Lawyers

GAIR, GAIR, CONASON, STEIGMAN, MACKAUF, BLOOM & RUBINOWITZ has staked its superior reputation on its dedication, sensitivity and commitment to personal service. Based in Manhattan but handling cases throughout New York and New Jersey, our injury lawyers specialize in the most serious and significant personal injury and general negligence cases, which range from construction and automobile accidents to medical malpractice and complex products liability claims. Its national reputation as “counsel to the profession” makes it the top choice for fellow members of the Bar who seek the best representation possible for those they refer.

In order to maintain the highest standards of quality and service, GGCSMB&R takes on a maximum of 100 cases a year. This concentrated focus allows for the meticulous trial preparation such substantial cases require and ensures that tort victims receive reasonable and just compensation for the full measure of their damages.

Our New York injury lawyers carefully screen each case before assigning it to a team selected for its relevant expertise. The diverse backgrounds of the firm’s 18 attorneys—including top-rated trial attorneys, renowned appellate court attorneys, a medical doctor (MD/JD), a registered nurse and an emergency medical technician—give each team a unique perspective for evaluating, preparing and trying its case, aided by state-of-the-art support services and courtroom technology.

In the last 10 years alone, GGCSMB&R’s impressive track record includes more than 400 cases resulting in verdicts or settlements exceeding $1 million. Among the most notable awards were $103 million for a child who sustained brain damage at birth; $90 million for a child with cerebral palsy resulting from birth injuries; $27.5 million for a pedestrian struck by a bus; $26 million for a pedestrian struck by a truck; $17 million for a young man disabled after a failed medical diagnosis; $16 million for a construction worker injured when he fell from a scaffold; and $14 million on behalf of tenants injured by a pipe explosion due to Con Edison negligence. While the firm’s team of legal and medical experts cannot replace what has been lost through personal injury or death, they can—and do—help restore a life of dignity and financial independence to victims and their families.
