Standing Up for Accident Victims Since 1987

Nothing can turn your life upside-down and inside-out like a serious accident or the loss of a loved one. Carefully laid plans are suddenly thrown out the window, and the future you envisioned is jeopardized – all because someone acted with disregard for your safety. If you want answers, Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. is the firm to help you. Our New York City personal injury attorneys represent clients across the state who have suffered harm in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, nursing home abuse, or medical malpractice, and in any scenario linked to the negligence or wrongdoing of another.

It takes a competent and aggressive attorney to level the playing field between you and the insurance company that’s responsible for paying for your injuries or losses. With our extensive trial experience and an unwavering commitment setting right the wrongs caused by negligence, we can deliver the representation you need. We have been fighting for New York’s injured since 1987 and have recovered over $70 million for our clients. When it comes to upholding your rights, we won’t cave and we won’t flee. We love the long, hard fight because it yields the results you rightfully deserve.
