Queens Municipal Accident Attorney

Exposing Negligence on Government Properties

Local, state and federal governments can be held liable for injuries that occur on government-owned property or state-owned facilities. What constitutes negligence may depend on whether the area in which the accident occurred was restricted, whether codes and regulations were followed or whether an accident victim took appropriate precautions.

At the Law Office of Schachter, P.C., we represent people injured in government buildings, state-run hospitals, schools and other government properties. Guided by personal injury attorney David B. Schachter, we have the investigative resources and knowledge needed to expose negligence on the part of government agencies and facilities in failing to maintain safe, secure premises.
