A serious injury can forever change your future. Ongoing medical expenses paired with the inability to work can quickly add up to financial hardships for you and your family. Then there’s the added layer of stress brought on by physical pain and emotional suffering.
If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, such as an auto accident or a fall on poorly maintained property, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered. At Belluck & Fox, LLP, our highly respected Staten Island personal injury lawyers have more than 20 years of experience successfully handling a wide range of injury claims. In fact, our nationally recognized law firm has recovered more than $1 billion for deserving clients and their families.

We Serve Clients Throughout Staten Island
Staten Island is the southernmost part of New York City and New York State, separated from both by New York Bay. With about 479,000 residents, it’s the least populated of New York City’s five boroughs but has quite a large land area of about 59 square miles.
Three bridges connect Staten Island to New Jersey, and one — the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge — connects it to Brooklyn. The borough arguably is best known for the free Staten Island Ferry, which links it to Manhattan and provides gorgeous views of Lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. However, Staten Island also has several cultural attractions, such as the Staten Island Zoo, the Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication, the National Lighthouse Museum, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, the Staten Island Botanical Garden and Historic Richmond Town, a living history village and museum complex with restored buildings from the colonial period.
