Car Accidents


Thousands of people are injured every day in car accidents throughout the United States, including a substantial number in the Metro New York Area. For more than 70 years, our team has been helping car crash victims throughout the region. At our firm, we handle all types of car accidents, including crashes caused by drunk or drugged drivers, distracted driving accidents, accidents involving Uber or Lyft vehicles, and collisions caused by speeding and other traffic violations. Our attorneys will work to determine what led to your accident and work with you in pursuing full compensation under the law.

Truck and Tractor-Trailer Accidents


Measuring up to 70 feet long and weighing as much as 40 tons, a commercial truck is a massive vehicle that can cause severe damage and bodily injury when one is involved in an accident. Truck accidents are also complicated by the number of parties that could potentially share in the responsibility for the crash. At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we assist victims injured in any type of semi, truck, or tractor-trailer accident.

Catastrophic Injuries


Any injury caused by another person's negligence will have a negative effect on the victim's life. Some injuries, however, are so severe that a full physical recovery is not possible. Our compassionate attorneys seek compensation on behalf of victims of catastrophic injuries, such as amputated or severed limbs, partial or full paralysis, and serious spinal cord injuries.

    by The Law Offices of Mark Sherman, LLC

    In 2013 my husband was killed and daughter critically injured when a drunk driver hit them head-on. It was a very difficult time for us but Mr. Kelly was without a doubt, extremely professional and caring at the same time. If I could give John Kelly more than 5 stars in my review, I absolutely would.

    by Martina Calvelli

    My 8 year old son was killed in a totally preventable accident and we came to him for help. Mr. Kelly was caring and compassionate and gave us support to make it through the legal process. I would highly recommend him, and hope never to have to use his services for a wrongful death case again.

    by Sharon Grishkin Wu

    Extremely pleased with not only the quick way my case was handled, but the professionalism and kindness of my attorney, John Kelly. He was very smart, worked quickly and efficiently and was very concerned about my wellbeing after my bad car accident. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

How Do I Know if I Have a Valid Personal Injury Case?

Perhaps the most frequently asked question regarding personal injury lawsuits is whether or not a client actually has a valid injury claim. While the answer will vary based on the circumstances of the specific situation, most personal injury claims stem from the wrongdoing or negligence of another. The negligent party could be a person, business, company, or organization. Fortunately, Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC offers completely cost-free initial assessments. If you are unsure about whether or not you have a valid personal injury claim, schedule a consultation with our experienced team, and we will discuss your options with you.

FAQs

What Types of Damages Can I Recover?

Compensatory damages in a personal injury case can include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include things such as medical bills, costs related to ongoing physical therapy or other medical treatment, lost wages from missed work, diminished earning capacity, and property damage. Non-economic damages include intangible damages such as mental anguish, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life. In a wrongful death suit, damages can include loss of financial support, loss of parental guidance, funeral and burial expenses, and more. In situations involving an especially grievous act, punitive damages, which are additional funds intended to punish the wrongdoer, may be available.

FAQs

Can I Still Sue if I Was Partially Responsible?

New York and Connecticut both operate under the rule of comparative negligence or comparative fault. This means that a party who is partially responsible for their own injury can still pursue compensation as long as they are not more at fault than the other party is. In situations involving more than one negligent party, the amount of compensation a claimant is eligible for is reduced by his or her degree of fault.

FAQs

Will it Cost Me Anything to Talk to a Lawyer About My Case?

At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we offer free consultations so that you can discuss your catastrophic injury case with a member of our team without any cost or obligation. Our lawyers will help you understand your available options for taking legal action, and we can even help you get the medical care you need.
