Uncertainty is an emotion commonly experienced by many victims following an accident. While dealing with the pain that comes with any injury, in addition to worrying about the cost of unexpected medical bills and lost wages, many people assume that they don’t have the time, energy, or money to pursue a lawsuit.
The lawyers at Lipsig, Shapey, Manus, and Moverman are dedicated to helping those who were injured due to another’s negligence. We firmly believe that you and your loved ones deserve to be compensated for your losses. The fact is – you can’t afford to not learn more about your legal options.
Why Should I File A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
At Lipsig, Shapey, Manus, and Moverman P.C., we understand that every personal injury case is unique, and that the decision to move forward with a lawsuit is a very personal choice.
Alan M. Shapey is a senior trial attorney who has been trying cases for over 30 years. His largest verdicts included cases involving infant lead poisoning, municipal liability, product liability claims against auto manufacturers, construction site injuries, and cases where individuals were hit by trains in the New York Transit Authority system.
Named a Super Lawyer’s “Rising Star” in 2013, Mr. Freund has gone above and beyond to obtain outstanding verdicts and settlements for clients since joining the practice in 2005. In 2012 alone, he recovered over $20 million for Lipsig clients. As a reward for his tireless efforts, Mr. Freund was named a partner in the firm – the youngest ever in the firm’s history.
Tom Moverman established the firm with Mr. Lipsig and his partners in 1989. He specializes in product liability and his cases have involved defective machinery, household and workplace products, motor vehicles and toxic drugs and chemicals. He has been honored by being invited to write a textbook on Products Liability Law.
Personal injury law exists so that those who are injured in an accident that is caused by another person’s negligence have a chance to recover compensation for their physical, emotional, and financial losses. You and your loved ones should not have to suffer for something that wasn’t your fault
All personal injury cases involve negligence. Negligence occurs when a person fails to act in a way that would reasonably keep others safe. The definition of what is “reasonable” can change from case to case, depending on what type of personal injury accident you were involved in.
If you can answer yes to one of the following, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses:
In the blink of an eye, the sudden impact of a car accident can turn a victim’s world upside down. It doesn’t matter if the vehicles involved are cars, motorcycles, trucks, or buses, the damage can be devastating. In severe accidents, the insurance coverage may not be enough to cover the medical expenses of the injured.

Time and time again, victims of slip and fall accidents say that they never expected to suffer from serious injuries due to a fall. But the reality is that hazardous conditions like defective handrails, broken floor tiles, or spilled liquids can cause falls that result in permanent injury.

Construction workers who are injured on the job frequently assume that their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance will take care of them. Workers’ comp is supposed to be a “no-fault” insurance, ensuring that anyone who is injured is compensated regardless of who is at fault. It comes as a shock to many when they find out that on average, more than 50% of all worker’s comp claims are denied.
