When you have been injured or suffered losses caused by another party's negligent or wrongful actions, you have the right to seek compensation. The New York personal injury law firm of Tolmage, Peskin, Harris, Falick has helped injured people and their families recover money and other damages. Their personal injury attorneys are committed to providing injured victims with aggressive representation and the knowledgeable support they need to get results.

They are dedicated to providing the advocacy and counsel for citizens to achieve a fair deal in the courtroom when taking on the most powerful opposition. This is more important today than ever before, because the pharmaceutical and insurance industries, big oil companies and other large corporations dominate our political process. So in cases where corporations act irresponsibly by producing unsafe products, by polluting our environment, or by swindling their employees to pad their profits, the last resort for Americans to hold them accountable is in our courts.

When a person is injured under the care of a medical facility, a doctor or other care giver, it is very hard to understand and deal with. The truth is, in society individuals and professionals must act responsibly and with a generally acceptable standard. This gives all citizens in a society a societal standard of behavior.

Verdicts & Settlements

$6.3 Million awarded for Canadian Securities Broker killed in Tower 1 collapse

The third highest award by the Special Master to the widow of a Canadian Securities Broker, then living in Manhattan, killed in the collapse of Tower 1 arising out of the events of September 11th, 2001. The clients were married for 4 years and had no children. This case was handled proudly, without fee and without expense to the client, as part of the Trial Lawyers Care program. Mr. Peskin is a founding member and Vice-President of Trial Lawyers Care, Inc.


$4.3 Million obtained for a 4-year-old child and his parents from Turkey

The child came to a well-known hospital in New York City from his native country of Turkey for diagnostic testing. As a result of the test he sustained severe brain injuries due to lack of oxygen while under anesthesia. The unique part of this case is that the child and parents were here on a visitor's visa and spoke almost no English. We obtained extensions on their visa status and while the child remained in the hospital for over one year, the parents were given living accommodations, food allowances and were sent to school to learn English. These items were in addition to the money settlement.


$2.25 Million obtained for a Virginia chef who was electrocuted

The chef working in an exclusive Manhattan restaurant suffered only minor injuries as a result of the burns, however, it was determined that he suffered major brain damage which was not apparent immediately after the accident. The electric shock affected the nerves and cells of the brain so that his short-term memory, sense of taste and smell were destroyed, and his cognitive ability was similarly injured.


$2 Million to Staten Island Male injured in head-on accident

$1.5 Million awarded for Queens security guard killed in Tower 2 collapse

Awarded by the Special Master to the first case filed with the Victims Compensation Fund arising out of the events of September 11th, 2001 for a widow and her 2 year old daughter.

Mr. Peskin is a founding member of Trial Lawyers Care, Inc.


$1.475 Million awarded to Manhattan woman pinned against the rear bumper of her car as she was unloading the trunk

The lawsuit is an excellent example of the importance of having sufficient insurance. The plaintiff suffered a partial severance of her leg below the knee. Fortunately the expert medical care that she received saved her leg and she now has complete mobility, but horrific scarring. The offending car had only $100,000 in insurance which was promptly tendered. The plaintiff carried under-insurance of $1.5 Million. The under-insurance company was entitled to a set off for the first $100,000 from the offending car, and then added $1.375 million of its own. Under-Insurance is an inexpensive item on your total auto insurance bill and should be purchased for as much as you can possibly afford. Please see "Automobile Insurance".
