Sexual assault happens in many different ways. Most people when they hear sexual assault think of rape. But there are other types of sexual assaults which leave their victims with deep psychological trauma affecting them for the rest of their lives. Sexual assaults can happen under different circumstances. It could be a doctor, a teacher a clergyman or even your employer. If you or a family member have had this experience call us to discuss your legal recourse .
Building owners and managers have a legal responsibility to provide a reasonably secure environment for people who live in or visit their premises. Schools have the same responsibility for their teachers and students.
In other cases, sexual assaults may occur by trusted individuals in positions of authority such as nurses, doctors, home attendants, staff at nursing homes or Special Education facilities, teachers, religious figures such as priests, and or employers.
Lead paint was commonly used in homes and apartment buildings throughout the country. Once it was discovered how harmful lead can be when inhaled and ingested lead was removed from paint.

If this has happened to a loved one we can help.

Property owners owe a duty to others who come on to their property. This duty includes keeping the premises clear of unreasonable dangers. To fulfill this duty, property owners should routinely inspect their property. If they become aware of any unsafe condition, they should remedy or repair the condition, or place a clear warning of the danger. All but the most obvious dangers should be warned about.
The exact nature of the duty may differ depending upon the type of property involved. For instance, a grocery store or shop owner may need to inspect the aisles several times a day to make sure that nothing has been spilled or dropped on the floor that may cause a slip or trip in the aisle. A landlord or owner of an apartment building may need to ensure adequate lighting in stairwells and parking garages, so as not to create an unreasonable risk of assault to tenants. Dog owners will want to keep their animals fenced in or on leashes to prevent vicious animal attacks.
There are many different types of premises liability cases, although some of the most common include:

Construction workers operate dangerous equipment, lift large or heavy objects, and work high off the ground.

Unlike workers’ compensation, these lawsuits can include recovery for full wages and benefits, medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering. You may recover regular workers’ compensation benefits and also make a claim for damages in the third-party lawsuit. The damages recovered may be very substantial.

Pit bull dog bites and other animal attacks often cause serious injury and the victim may require plastic surgery or other extensive costly treatment.
New York courts have long recognized a cause of action that imposes strict liability on the owner for injuries inflicted by his dog if the victim can establish that the dog is vicious and that the owner knew or should have known about such vicious propensities. The state’s highest court ruled “that the owner of a domestic animal who either knows or should have known of that animal’s vicious propensities will be held liable for the harm the animal causes as a result of those propensities. Vicious propensities include the propensity to do any act that might endanger the safety of the persons and property of others in a given situation.” Bard v. Jahnke, 6 NY3d 592 (N.Y. 2006), citation omitted.

Being sexually abused by a member of a trusted community, such as by a priest or clergy member, or while living in a foster home, is devastating on many levels. Victims are often traumatized throughout their lives and undergo significant therapy to assist in managing their day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, many victims are not able to confront their abusers until they are much older and realize the effects of the abuse. If you suffered physical or sexual abuse, you need an experienced sexual abuse lawyer who can assert your rights against an abuser and the church that did nothing to stop the abuse. We will aggressively pursue claims against your abuser as well as any other parties or organizations that concealed the abuse; any third party who neglected to protect you may also be liable for concealing the abuse or failing to act. Our attorneys are sensitive in addressing the issues of our clients. We will handle your case professionally and discreetly. Typical scenarios involve;
Child sex abuse
Priest sexual abuse
Concealment of abuse
Foster home abuse
The police are responsible for protecting the community and maintain law and order. The majority of officers uphold the their responsibility to serve and protect the community. Unfortunately some officers act outside their authority. Often times this leads to improper stop and frisk encounters, false arrests, use of unnecessary force, beatings, and in some cases wrongful police shootings.
The attorneys at Stevens and Traub take these cases very seriously. Our firm will work with you to file a complaint as well as file a lawsuit against the appointed officer so as to get you the compensation you deserve for this outrageous treatment.
People have a right to go to work and not be subject to discrimination at the workplace. New York & Federal Law prohibit discrimination against an employee. The law has detailed, protected categories for employees who have been subject to unfair treatment or harassment.

These protected categories along with sexual harassment can subject an employee to work in a hostile work environment.
The attorneys at Stevens and Traub will fight for you and help you get the compensation you deserve.
