Who We Are
Our one and only speciality is accident cases involving personal injury.
Since the firm’s inception in 1985 we have represented thousands of clients involving personal injury and wrongful death. We have the financial resources and experience to fight for your rights. When necessary we retain experienced investigators as well as experts in the fields of medicine, safety, construction, scaffolding and any other specialty necessary to maximize the value of your case.
We have established the respect of judges, the courts, insurance companies and opposing lawyers. In fact we have represented individuals in many of these categories for their own personal injury cases.
Frank Vozza and Michael Huguenot grew up in the Bronx and attended local schools. After we achieved our Juris Doctor Degrees we were admitted to practice in the Courts of New York State and the Southern and Eastern District Federal Courts.
Call our firm to speak and meet with Frank Vozza, Esq. and Michael Huguenot, Esq. Each of us has well over 30 years experience in the personal injury field. One of our advantages about having grown up in the Bronx is that we are familiar with its neighborhoods and local merchants.
What We Do
We know the importance of personally attending to your case by taking the time to speak with you and address any concerns you may have about your personal injury claim. We answer common questions such as: Who will pay the medical bills? If I can't work will I get fired from my job? Are there benefits available to me while my case is going on? Do I have a case? How long will my case take? Should I talk to the person who phoned me about my accident? Should I talk to an insurance company representative?
Young attorneys are often eager but lack the most important element .... experience. When you retain us to handle your case you will know from the start that one of the partners will be managing your case from start to finish. We guide you through the difficult process of getting life back together after a serious accident. We counsel you on how to best achieve a balance between taking the time to stay home to recover and yet still be able to pay the household bills that keep on piling up.
Our first contact with you is usually on the phone. We will get some essential information at that time. We will meet you in person very soon after that call. We may meet you in our office, at your home or even at the hospital. We can also arrange for transportation if necessary. At our first meeting we will take a detailed interview of what happened and explore all of our legal options to best insure a large cash recovery for you. Where necessary we will personally visit the accident site; or hire an investigator to secure witness statements and other information necessary to have a successful outcome. It is at this early stage of the case that we begin to develop our strategy. Throughout the course of representing you we are always available to discuss the case whether it be to discuss ongoing medical treatment, overall progress or status of the lawsuit in the Court system.
Frequently during the course of litigation you may have to give testimony at a hearing or oral deposition. We will meet with you in advance to prepare you and help you with any worry you may have about your upcoming deposition so that you are more at ease and feel prepared and self assured about the upcoming hearing. We know what questions to expect and know how to prepare you so that you can give testimony that is both credible and helpful to your case.
During the course of our representation you may have questions about medical treatment. We are not doctors and don't give medical advice but we will answer any questions you have about how your medical treatment will affect your case.
While we have extensive trial experience the vast majority of cases will settle before the actual trial of the action. Whether the cases go to trial or are settled before trial we have been very successful in securing very large cash settlements. We are assured of the highest monetary recovery because we treat each and every case as if it will go to trial.
We cannot stress to you enough that if you are in an accident you should call us immediately. We don’t use an answering service. There is always a trained professional to take your call and guide you through those critical first few hours after an accident has happened.
