New York Personal Injury Attorneys
As a construction law firm in New York, we understand the general negligence laws and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards designed to protect workers in this dangerous occupation. Our New York construction law firm helps injured workers file worker’s compensation claims, but, unlike some NY construction law firms, we do not stop there—we investigate to identify parties responsible for accidents and pursue all compensation our clients deserve.
New York Law Firm offers specialized injury services
More than 50 years ago, a young Joseph P. Altier, fresh from four years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, joined what was known for years as the Manhattan personal injury law firm of Altier & Vogt LLC. Today the firm is called the Law Office of Philip P. Vogt, PLLC. Although the firm has undergone transformation over the years, the principles and goals on which it was founded continue to guide us in the 21st century.
Just as fathers teach their children, our senior attorneys share their knowledge and skills so that the firm’s tradition of excellence can endure.
Our goals remain constant – to treat our clients like family and to help the injured in their greatest time of need.
The attorneys at the Law Office of Philip P. Vogt, PLLC have over five decades of experience trying hundreds of accidental injury cases and winning millions of dollars for our clients. And, our experience extends beyond the typical types of injuries—we have the specific knowledge and experience to handle a number of specialized personal injury cases:
- Railroad accident in NY (FELA): The attorneys at our railroad accident law firm in NY have extensive knowledge in how the railroads work. This understanding allows our NY railroad accident law firm to win cases that were abandoned by other NY r ailroad accident law firms.
- Accidents & defects in NY: At the Law Office of Philip P. Vogt, PLLC, we recognize that consumers have a right to expect a certain degree of safety from products, equipment, and drugs they use every day. When individuals are injured while using a product as instructed, they have the right to expect compensation for all related expenses. But, these cases often involve many individuals and companies that can bear responsibility for all or part of an injury. We have the experience and resources to unravel the maze of responsible parties to pursue the compensation our clients deserve.
Our clients are our family
Our injury attorneys collaborate in a familial environment that drives us to provide the very best representation. We trust each other implicitly and strive to develop the same relationship with our clients. Clients work with the same attorney throughout their case and can expect regular, one-on-one contact to keep them abreast of developments and to address their concerns. They will not be shuttled off to other attorneys or paralegals.
Clients rely on us to diligently handle all aspects of their case, from investigation and claim filing to negotiating with insurance companies and trying the case to a jury. We focus on the details so injury victims can take care of themselves and their families.
Clients benefit from our stability
In the five decades that we have operated from our midtown Manhattan office, we have successfully tried hundreds of cases. We have obtained millions of dollars for our clients and established case law that impacts how personal injury cases are tried in courts throughout New York.
Our focus is on cases involving:
