for Your Maximum
Long Island City (LIC) is a residential and commercial neighborhood on the extreme western tip of Queens, a borough of NYC. It is bordered by Astoria to the north, the East River to the west, New Calvary Cemetery in Sunnyside to the east; and Newtown Creek—which separates Queens from Greenpoint, Brooklyn—to the south.
Incorporated as a city in 1870, Long Island City was originally the seat of government of the Town of Newtown, before becoming part of the City of Greater New York in 1898. In the early 21st century, Long Island City became known for its rapid and ongoing residential growth and gentrification, its waterfront parks, and its thriving arts community. The area has a high concentration of art galleries, art institutions, and studio space.
Being seriously injured in an accident is a traumatic, devastating experience, especially if the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence or fault. If you or a loved one has been harmed or someone has died due to personal injuries, an experienced Long Island City personal injury attorney can help you get compensation for your losses through insurance or a personal injury lawsuit.
Personal injury involves mental and physical injuries to a person caused by someone else’s negligence. Victims have to deal with physical and emotional pain and suffering, and also with financial losses from mounting medical, hospital, and rehabilitative bills, at a time they are unable to work.

New York laws regarding personal injury cases can be complicated, and insurance companies often attempt to deny claims or pay out the lowest amount possible, but an experienced personal injury lawyer will take all steps necessary for winning optimum compensation. There are many lawyers out there, but we believe Michael J. Redenburg, Esq. PC is your best choice. Here are some reasons why:
At Michael J. Redenburg, Esq. PC, we have years of experience successfully holding responsible parties accountable for damages due to their negligence — and winning money for our clients. Let us do the same for you.
When you hire our LIC personal injury lawyers, we will start working for you immediately. We will:
We use all necessary resources to achieve successful outcomes for our clients. Not only do we handle the daily processes required with a claim, we go the extra mile to ensure our clients understand what is going on with their case.
Through personal injury claims you can demand payment for damages, which are the costs you face due to an accident and injury. In NY, you can seek compensation for both your economic damages or financial losses, and also your “non-economic” damages as follows:
Economic damages may include:
Noneconomic damages cover damages that don’t have a specific monetary value, but negatively impact your life, such as:
Punitive damages – In some rare cases, punitive damages may also be awarded. These are intended to punish a defendant who acted in an especially reckless or egregious manner and to deter such behaviors in the future.
There are a wide range of damages amounts that may be awarded for personal injury, from thousands to millions of dollars. Amounts you may receive depend on the circumstances of the case and factors that include:
These are broad categories of damages that include many of the costs you face. We work with our clients to find out the true costs of an injury, so we can be sure that we demand payment that meets their needs.
A key part of personal injury cases is the concept of negligence — when someone acts carelessly or without regard to the safety of others. To win your case, our New York personal injury attorneys would have to show that another party, the defendant in the case, was negligent and at fault for causing the accident that injured you. This means showing the following legal elements:
The drunk driver who hits a pedestrian is negligent in their role as a driver. A doctor who ignores clear signs that a patient is seriously ill is negligent in their role in providing adequate healthcare. Negligence comes in many forms, and it is the basis for most personal injury claims.
If you’ve been hurt and you seek the assistance of a lawyer in a personal injury case, it will not be left up to you to determine who was acting negligently. Our Queens personal injury attorneys will investigate your case, determine who was negligent, and fight on your behalf to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
In some cases, there may be more than one negligent party, and our attorneys would seek to identify them all and name them as defendants in the case, as they all may have insurance and assets that can go toward a settlement.
People suffer injuries in many different ways. When an injury is minor and no one is at fault, the injured person recovers and goes about their life. It’s when a person suffers a serious, costly injury through the fault of someone else that they typically look at their legal options. Many of these serious injuries are the basis for personal injury claims, such as:
While injuries are often painful and cause a great deal of physical and emotional suffering, the impact of that injury isn’t limited to just physical and mental harm. Injuries are expensive. They can lead to extensive medical treatment, which can quickly become a financial burden. They can also lead to significant time lost at work and, in some cases, they can limit a person’s ability to earn income. The loss of wages makes paying medical bills and meeting other costs of living even more challenging for an injured person.
These costs are just a few of the reasons that people file personal injury claims. A claim won’t take away someone’s pain, but it will help them avoid the terrible financial consequences that follow in the wake of a major injury. By filing a claim, victims can earn compensation that helps them and their families cope with the fallout of a serious accident.
When dealing with a serious personal injury, it’s natural to have questions and concerns. While these are best addressed at your free consultation, to get you started, here are some answers to questions our attorneys are often asked:
The length of time it takes to resolve a case varies considerably. Some cases will be resolved within a few months, while others might take a few years. In general, cases that can be resolved through negotiation take less time than those that go to court, and if a case is relatively simple, without many damages, it may resolve faster than one that is complicated, with multiple defendants and victims. It’s always best to take legal action sooner rather than later, and, in some cases, waiting to file a claim can affect your ability to get adequate compensation.
No, insurance companies are not your friend; they are out for profit and want to pay out as little as possible. They may use tactics such as getting you to accept a quick settlement for less than your case is worth or trying to get you to admit something that indicates you were at fault for the accident. Tell the insurance company to speak to your attorney and let our personal injury lawyers handle all dealings and negotiations with insurance companies.
The good news is that it costs nothing up front to hire our personal injury lawyers. We offer free consultations where you’ll be able to meet with our team to tell us the details of your situation, and you are under no obligation to move forward. If you do decide to have us represent you, there are no fees to you unless and until we win a settlement for you, and then costs are taken out of the award.

Literally one of the best in the business. Wouldn’t want anyone else to handle situations of the law if it isn’t Mr. Redenburg. I can say and been a witness of Mr. Redenburg’s work to the point where he basically schooled the judge about how a certain law works. The judge learned something new, literally the judge thanked Mr. Redenburg for teaching him something for the future.
