The Personal Injury Representation You Need

At The Ahearne Law Firm, we represent individuals and families in personal injury cases throughout New York State and the federal courts. Our personal injury practice areas include auto accidents, truck accidents, construction accidents, products liability, medical malpractice, and wrongful death.

All personal injury cases are paid for by our firm. Your case will cost you nothing. We finance the cost and we only get paid if you get paid.

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, don’t hesitate to contact us right away. As soon as a car accident occurs, it is important to collect the right information, such as police reports, witness information, photographs and video surveillance. Our office assists clients in processing all No-Fault insurance claims, in identifying the best possible medical care and in organizing all reports and medical records needed in support of your case. When we commence a personal injury lawsuit, we do so ready, organized and armed with all the facts, medical reports and expert support needed to set the tone for your case from day one as a strong Plaintiff, in the right, and determined to prevail. Most of all, our law firm knows the process and how to defeat insurance companies that want to avoid paying your legitimate injury claims.

In product liability cases, it is particularly important to have tenacious counsel on your side. Thousands of people nationwide suffer every year from defective medical device implants and dangerous drugs rushed to market. In the last decade alone, over 100,000 hip and knee implants have been recalled due to high rates of failure and metal in the blood. The pharmaceutical industry generates billions of dollars each year selling dangerous unproven drugs such as blood thinners, anti-depressants, testosterone, and other hormone therapy drugs.

Taking on a multi-billion-dollar medical device company is no small task. You need a firm that knows federal products liability litigation. We do. We represent clients nationwide in multi-district litigation and we know the federal products liability processes and procedures. If you’ve been injured by a medical device, contact us today.

Experienced DWI Defense

If you’ve been charged with a DWI in New York State, you need an experienced DWI defense attorney. If you need to drive to work, you need a lawyer that can help you get a hardship license right away while your case is pending, and a conditional driver’s license until your driver’s license is restored.

New York State is one of many that are cracking down on DWI. The penalties today are far more severe than in years past. Penalties for repeat offenders are particularly serious with long-term consequences. DWI Defendants may have their driver’s license revoked, be required to install an ignition interlock device, attend alcohol treatment classes, pay expensive fines and in serious cases, be sentenced with time in jail.

A New York State DWI Defendant must have an experienced DWI defense lawyer. Mr. Ahearne is dedicated to providing you the highest quality DWI defense. We challenge every bit of evidence the prosecutor claims against you. We will cross-examine the police and arresting officers. We will challenge their paperwork and the science behind your blood alcohol content (BAC) reading, and we will challenge the chemical tests or blood tests used to collect that evidence against you.

The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration Standardized Filed Sobriety Tests have very specific requirements of the police and we are experienced in cross-examining the police on how they administered these tests. In DWI Drug cases, the police are required to administer tests by a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE), but often times they do not. Police will often stop your vehicle illegally. Police will collect statements by defendants or confessions in violation of Miranda warnings. Police will charge drivers with breath test refusals when their own devices do not work correctly. We will challenge every step of the stop, search and arrest process and all evidence collected against you, piece by piece.

If you’ve been charged with a DWI in New York, do not go it alone and do not go it wrong. Contact us today.
