All of Our Practice Areas Focus on
Bringing Clients the Justice They Deserve
We have always focused on assisting clients who have suffered harm due to someone else’s negligence and require compensation. We have the experience and legal knowledge to handle both negotiations and litigation with strength and skill. Our founding attorney, Frank J. Dito, Jr. is also available to you 24/7 and will sit down with you to discuss all of the necessary details of your case. You can count on him to work tirelessly and advocate on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve.
Once you contact us, you will feel that a burden has been lifted as we:
- Handle all interactions with opposing lawyers, insurance adjusters, and government agencies
- Study police reports and medical data
- Interview witnesses
- Confer with experts whose testimony may substantiate your case
Personal injury is a broad category, encompassing all ways another party may be responsible for the harm that has come to you and therefore legally obligated to pay you appropriate compensation. Personal injury cases may involve:
- Car and other vehicular accidents
- Slip and falls due to poor maintenance (e.g. spills, uncleared walkways, broken steps)
- Medical malpractice, such as misdiagnosis or unnecessary treatment or surgery
- Product liability when you have been hurt by a defective piece of machinery, vehicle, or contaminated medication
- Dog bites due to an unrestrained or vicious animal
If you have suffered severe physical injury due to someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, you have most likely suffered emotional trauma as well. In any case, we will fight for damages to cover both your economic and noneconomic losses. Examples of the former are medical expenses and lost income; examples of the latter are pain and suffering and permanent disability. If the defendant has behaved especially egregiously, we may also persuade the court to award you punitive damages.
When you are hurt at work in Staten Island or New York City, you need to file for workers’ comp benefits. Although accidents can occur anywhere, and all employers are required to have workers’ comp insurance, some industries are more dangerous than others, putting employees at greater risk.
Wherever you work, you are entitled to workers’ comp for the duration of your recovery whether you fell on a slippery floor, were hit by a falling object, were injured by machinery or equipment, or even attacked in a poorly lit hallway or parking lot. Workers’ comp provides you cash benefits and medical treatment while you are unable to work. Whatever the circumstances of your accident, you can count on The Law Offices of Frank J. Dito, Jr. to work tirelessly to try to obtain the workers’ comp benefits you will need to restart your life.
Inherently dangerous occupations include:
- Construction workers
- Electrical worker
- Sanitation workers
- Healthcare professionals
- Police officers
Nursing Home Negligence
Though we all know that nursing homes are understaffed, and have been especially overwhelmed by increases in sick patients and staff members during the pandemic, there is no acceptable excuse for nursing home negligence. If you have a family member who has been victimized by nursing home neglect, you should get in touch with us as soon as possible so that we can right the wrongs that have occurred and protect your loved one from further harm.
If your loved one complains or doesn’t seem right to you, it is important to pay close attention, speak to nurses, aides, and supervisory personnel. If you don’t receive reasonable explanations about your concerns, contact Frank J. Dito, Jr. for a consultation.
He has extensive experience with matters of nursing home negligence and will be able to assess whether the situation rises to a level serious enough to warrant a lawsuit. Nursing home neglect often manifests in one or more of the following ways:
- Poor patient hygiene
- Dehydration or weight loss
- Behavioral changes
- Unexplained bruises or other injuries
- Wandering or elopement
September 11th Victim
While James Zadroga himself was an NYPD police detective who became severely ill and died after search and recovery work at Ground Zero, you needn’t be a first responder to the catastrophe or its aftermath to recover damages. If you worked, lived, or attended school near the site and subsequently developed serious lung issues or certain varieties of cancer after 9/11, you may be entitled to substantial compensation.
Thousands of people continue to receive funds from the U.S. government as a result of claims under the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. If you spent long periods in the area, it is entirely possible that the carcinogenic fumes and debris, and the toxic levels of asbestos, lead, dioxin, and benzene, terribly impacted your health.
Through The Red Tape
If you believe or suspect that you are suffering from an illness you developed as a result of 9/11, please contact us as soon as you can so that we can evaluate your medical records and location to see whether you have a viable claim. If so, we will help you cut through the red tape and provide you with constant legal and emotional support.
I am exceptionally happy with the outcome of my case. With the trauma I had been through, it was comforting to know Frank Dito and Staff would stand up for me. The outcome was more than works can say and so very much appreciated.
I am extremely pleased with my association with the FJD LAW FIRM. Mr. Frank Dito, Jr. handled my slip and fall injury law suit case personally. His skill, knowledge, expertise and friendliness were evident from the very start and continued throughout the process.
If your case centers on a tragic wrongful death, we will seek coverage for final medical costs, funeral costs, and loss of financial and emotional support. Depending on specific circumstances, we may be able to win you compensation for:
- Medical and rehabilitation costs
- Lost income, present and future
- Property damage or loss
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Extended nursing care
- Permanent scarring or other disfigurements
- Loss of household services
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Our book on how to protect yourself and your family in car accidents. Insurance companies have not done a good job in educating the public about how their car insurance really works and how it actually protects them. After meeting with hundreds of potential clients,
even many lawyers, and asking them what they knew about their car insurance, Frank J. Dito realized this book was needed to help consumers make informed choices about purchasing car insurance.
Learn the 10 mistakes that can wreck your NY accident case. When you try to settle your case with the insurance company without an attorney, the information that you may provide them can delay your claim and cause them to deny any payment. The often inevitable and complicated litigation that results from their unfair treatment of you requires a lawyer who knows how to speak with the insurance adjuster and understands how insurance companies operate.
