Saratoga Springs is a charming city located in Upstate New York, about 35 miles north of the capital city of Albany. The city has easy access to major metropolitan areas such as New York City, Boston and Montreal. Its population was estimated at 27,763 in 2016.
Saratoga Springs is home to mineral springs that have made it a resort destination for hundreds of years. It’s also cultural hub for the arts, hosting the New York City Ballet, Philadelphia Orchestra and numerous authors in summer residencies. The city is also known for its famed Saratoga Race Course, the oldest track for thoroughbred racing in the United States.
Newsweek magazine named Saratoga Springs’ Skidmore College among one of the country’s “Little Ivies” – schools that are too small for the Ivy League but provide the same level of quality and prestigious education to its students.[toc]

Types of Cases Our Saratoga Springs Lawyers Handle
No injury claim is the same. New York personal injury laws allow victims to collect compensation to assist with expenses and losses incurred as a result of the accident. The key point is proving that another person or party is at fault for your injuries using a legal doctrine called negligence.
Simply put, negligence means you must prove that someone acted carelessly and that those actions (either directly or indirectly) injured another person. It’s possible that more than one party shares fault for the accident, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are barred from being awarded damages in New York.
Our attorneys represent clients in claims involving:
- Catastrophic personal injuries: People who sustain injuries such as paralysis, traumatic brain injury (known as TBI), disfigurement and amputation often face a lifetime of disability and need continuous medical care. Our attorneys have seen the impacts of these devastating accidents and have 30 years of experience using New York personal injury laws to help alleviate the burdens suffered by victims and their families.
- Medical and hospital malpractice: We trust that our medical providers will give us the best possible care. Sadly, things such as missed diagnoses and medical errors that cause birth injuries or surgical mistakes happen more often than you think. Our law firm has experience rooting out how the mistakes happened, who is responsible and holding the responsible parties accountable for what happened to you.
- Motor vehicle accidents: New York law allows people who are injured in car and motorcycle accidents to collect compensation for pain and suffering only if the injuries qualify as “serious.” Our lawyers know the tactics that insurance companies will use to try to dismiss your claim and can get the medical proof to stop them from denying your claim.
- Construction/workplace accidents: As Saratoga Springs and the surrounding areas expand, increased construction can also mean a rising rate of construction accidents. Workplace accidents can be complex and involve multiple parties. Our legal team can use NY’s labor laws to analyze your case and make the best claim for compensation.
