White Plains Personal Injury Lawyers

Winning Compensation for Accident Victims in Westchester County for Over 35 Years

Denlea & Carton’s personal injury practice measures its success by the quality, not quantity, of the matters it handles. Unlike most personal injury practices, we are not dependent on a high volume of cases. Rather, we take on only the most serious cases, and because the stakes are high, we regularly litigate against the most tenacious, aggressive corporate defendants. We are well known to their ranks.

Our lawyers are passionate about what they do; for the past 35+ years we have been helping accident victims, and we can help you. If you have suffered a serious injury due to another person’s negligence or wrongdoing, they must be held responsible. We are experienced personal injury attorneys with a proven track record.

More Than $100 Million in Verdicts & Settlements

We use our combined experience of over 100 years to represent victims of catastrophic accidents. We understand injury and accident law and we understand what our clients are going through. Our personal injury attorneys don’t build their success on the number of cases we handle each year, but on winning the maximum financial compensation for injury victims.

We are trial lawyers, not paper pushers, unafraid to prosecute our cases until a jury returns a verdict. We’ve recovered tens of millions of dollars for clients (in actual dollars, not structured settlements) ranging from the widow of a Major League baseball player, to journeyman electricians, school teachers, pipe fitters and countless other trades.

$3 Million Recovered for Workplace Injury: A journeyman electrician working in a ceiling was injured when he fell from a defective ladder.  He sustained severe wrist injuries from the fall, ending his career and subsequently suffered two failed wrist surgeries.  Following a lengthy, contentious mediation, the matter was settled for $3 million.

$3.3 Million Recovered for Injured Iron Worker: An iron worker suffered severe facial burns when a piece of hot metal slag flew into an exposed waste oil tank, resulting in an explosion.  The victim was transported to the hospital where he underwent multiple lengthy and painful surgical procedures.  The matter resulted in a $3.3 million recovery.

$1.4 Million Recovered for Sexual Assault Victim: A disabled student suffered emotional and physical harm when he was sexually abused by a school employee over a period of time. Prosecuting the student’s claim against his former educators was complicated due to the lack of physical evidence and the limited intellectual capacity of the victim.

$6 Million Recovered for Victims of Propane Explosion: Two laborers sustained second and third degree burns over 60% of their bodies when a defective gas system allowed propane to settle in a basement where they were working. The victims underwent multiple surgical procedures and the matter was ultimately tried to a jury, which awarded the two men $5.7 million. After a victorious appeal, the matter was settled for $6 million.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

In New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims typically allows you three years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. However, it’s crucial not to delay as evidence can fade and witnesses may become harder to reach. Contact Denlea & Carton promptly, and we’ll help ensure your claim is filed within the required timeframe.

How is fault determined in personal injury cases in New York?

Fault in personal injury cases is determined based on negligence. New York follows a pure comparative negligence system, which means each party’s percentage of fault is considered. We investigate thoroughly, gather evidence, and work to establish liability. Our experience and expertise in dealing with aggressive corporate defendants are invaluable in this process.

How can I afford an attorney’s representation after an injury?

At Denlea & Carton, we understand the financial stress of an injury. We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay us only if we win your case. Our fee is a percentage of the settlement or verdict, so there are no upfront costs. You can pursue justice without worrying about attorney fees until your case is resolved.

Can I file a lawsuit on behalf of a loved one?

Yes, you can file a lawsuit on behalf of a loved one if they were killed as a result of someone else’s negligence. This type of claim is known as a “wrongful death” or “survival action” lawsuit. Some people lose the people they love in a catastrophic accident. Although there is no amount of money that can make the pain of losing your loved one go away, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation for medical costs, funeral expenses, loss of one’s husband or wife, pain and suffering, and loss of future income.

You may also file an injury lawsuit on behalf of a loved one who has become incapacitated, or if you are a legal guardian or have power of attorney.

How much money will I receive in a personal injury settlement or verdict?

The amount you receive in a personal injury settlement or verdict depends on various factors, including the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and the degree of liability of the responsible party. Our dedicated team will assess your case meticulously to pursue the maximum compensation possible. We have a proven track record of securing substantial settlements and verdicts for our clients.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Going over paperwork

When you get hurt, your life can be turned upside down. Medical bills pile up. You still have to take care of your regular monthly expenses. What happens if you can’t work? What happens if you can never work again? We provide compassionate care for our clients while ensuring their maximum recovery.

Often insurance companies will contact accident and injury victims and offer quick settlements. These settlements are generally far less than the actual case is worth, failing to take into consideration the full extent of a person’s injuries or inadequately compensating for lost wages and future medical costs.

You should never have to settle for less. Our White Plains personal injury attorneys know how to go after insurance companies and will not hesitate to take your case to trial to get the verdict you deserve.
