An Experienced Attorney Based In Staten Island

Handling Claims Throughout The New York Metropolitan Area

The aftermath of an accident can be emotional, traumatic and confusing. It can be difficult to get the medical attention required for you or an injured loved one, much less concern yourself with legal liability.

Trust your legal claim to me, John M. O'Dowd Jr. Through my law practice in Staten Island, I help accident victims throughout the New York metropolitan area with their legal claims. I have been working on personal injury claims for the past 31 years, and they are the primary focus of my practice. This includes representation in motor vehicle accident cases, a variety of premises liability matters such as slip-and-fall injuries or holding property owners responsible for dog bite and animal attacks, and helping out injured construction workers. Since becoming an attorney in 1985, I have provided representation for a range of other legal issues, including estate planning, guardianships and residential real estate.

As your attorney, I will provide you with timely updates as your case progresses. And with my extensive knowledge of local laws and court systems, as well as good working relationships with the legal community, you can rest assured that I will resolve your claim as efficiently and effectively as possible, allowing you to focus on other concerns.

A Strategic Approach To Personal Injury Cases

There are three factors to consider in most personal injury claims:

  1. What are the injuries?
  2. Who is at fault?
  3. Is there insurance involved?

Only a small percentage of personal injury cases end up in court; however, I prepare every case as if it were going to trial. I am an experienced litigator and understand how to demonstrate injury, causation and fault in personal injury cases. My reputation as a capable litigator forces the insurance company to take the claim seriously and provide a fair and full settlement for slip-and-falls, car crashes and other accidents.

The decision to settle or try a case is ultimately up to the individual, and I discuss the pros and cons with each of my clients so they can make educated choices. I provide a frank assessment regarding your injury claim, and I will help you understand how the process works.

I will be there from the moment you first meet with me during our consultation until your matter is fully resolved. I will aggressively fight for the kinds of compensation that will meet your short- and long-term needs and concerns.
