This could include a foreign substance, such as oil, a foreign object, an obstruction, snow or ice, defective construction, improper maintenance, a slippery floor, broken stairs, and other defects on the property which cause you to slip, trip or fall.

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to provide medical care that is keeping with good and accepted medical practices and procedures. In other words, a doctor, nurse or technician does something or fails to do something that is important to a patient's good care.


Fire is a common cause of property damage to homes. Fire is often the result in the destruction of many years of hard work and savings. When your property is damaged by fire, it is important that you pursue the full amount of compensation allowed by your homeowners policy.

Sidewalk Trip and Falls

When sidewalks are chipped, cracked, or have been insufficiently maintained by the city or responsible property owners, this negligence can lead to serious accidents and injuries. If you have been involved in a slip, trip, or fall accident on a sidewalk, you need to speak with an attorney about seeking the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills and other expenses related to injuries sustained as a result of this accident.

Bus and Subway Accidents

Millions of people ride public transportation in our city every day, trusting the transit authority to get them where they need to go safely. But when accidents happen and passengers or pedestrians are injured, injury victims need care and compensation to recover. At Schwartz Goldstone Campisi & Kates, LLP, we represent injury victims who have suffered injury as the result of accidents on New York City buses, subways or rail lines.

Legal Malpractice

Generally, legal malpractice occurs when an attorney, acting in their professional capacity as a lawyer is negligent. In this context, negli gence is the failure of an attorney to exercise “reasonable care”—which means use a degree of skill that an ordinary member of the legal profession would use. In order to prevail in a suit for legal malpractice, the plaintiff must also prove that they probably would have won the underlying case but for their attorney’s negligence in handling their matter.

Legal Malpractice

Assault and Battery

Assault & Battery is committed when a person either attempts to hurt another person or performs an act which places another individual in reasonable fear of receiving violent injury. If you physically touch somebody to insult or provoke them; or purposely cause harm you could be charged with simple battery. Furthermore if you deliberately harm someone and deprive them of the use of a body part or seriously disfigure them you have committed aggravated battery. At Schwartz Goldstone & Campisi, LLP, we will work hard to ensure that your legal rights and interests are protected.

Legal Malpractice

False Arrest

We as citizens have given police officers the awesome power to make arrests and to use force to effect those arrests. In order to make an arrest, a police officer must have probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed and that the person arrested committed the crime. When police officers make an arrest, oftentimes the probable cause for the arrest is based on simply the officers’ word against yours. Police have a natural advantage in court against a criminal defendant because they are trained to testify and have experience and relationships with prosecutors.

False Arrest

Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

A brain injury is also known as an acquired brain injury or intracranial injury and happens when the brain is damaged by sudden physical trauma. The damage can be caused by the head forcefully hitting an object such as the dashboard of a car (resulting in a closed head injury) or by something passing through the skull and piercing the brain, as in a gunshot wound (penetrating head injury). Motor vehicle accidents are the major cause of brain injuries.
