Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer
We’re dedicated to bringing justice to injured Buffalo residents
In the second-largest city in New York, serious accidents can happen at any time. Injuries don’t discriminate. Any of Buffalo’s 250,000 residents might be injured in a car accident, hurt in a slip-and-fall incident or involved in an accident at work. There’s also the thousands of people who commute to work and drive through Buffalo on the New York Thruway (I-90), Niagara Thruway (I-190) and the other major highways that pass through the city. Many of them are involved in accidents every single day.

At the Law Offices of James Morris, we’ve been bringing justice to the injured in Buffalo and throughout Erie County for decades. Our attorneys have the experience and dedication to represent you in negotiations and in court. We can thoroughly research your accident and build you the strongest case possible so you can move on from your accident.
Standing up to insurance companies, advocating for injury victims
Many personal injury attorneys in Buffalo don’t want to take their cases to trial. Going to court can be a huge commitment of time and effort. When insurance companies know that a lawyer doesn’t want to go to court, that gives insurance companies power when negotiating with injury victims. That’s why many insurance providers often make “lowball” offers to injury victims that don’t even come close to covering all their expenses. They know that most lawyers will simply accept whatever initial offer they receive.
We take a different approach at our law firm. We’re willing to go the distance and fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve. Our attorneys will take a hard line in negotiations with insurance companies. And if they’re not willing to pay you the money you need after your accident, we’re not afraid to take them to court and argue your case before a judge and jury. We know what it takes to win cases in Buffalo and throughout New York – by hitting hard, refusing to back down and always staying one step ahead of the opposition.
Our law firm is absolutely committed to bringing justice to injured Buffalo residents. If you’ve been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, contact us today for a free case evaluation. Call (800) 477-9044 or stop by our Buffalo office.
As a city with a quarter of a million residents and a major regional travel hub, the Queen City certainly sees its share of auto accidents. You may have been rear-ended at a busy intersection or hit by a drunk driver on an outlying road. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you might be unable to work and left to pay thousands of dollars in medical bills. You may have even lost a loved one.
Legal cases stemming from Buffalo auto accidents may seem straightforward, but they often are not. An insurance company may argue that you caused your own injuries or that they are due to a pre-existing condition. An experienced advocate from our firm who knows the court system in Buffalo will help you get the compensation you need.
Because of its location near I-90 and importance as the second-largest city in New York, plenty of commercial trucks pass through the Buffalo area every day. A fully loaded 18-wheeler can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, compared to about 3,000 pounds for the average passenger car. That means truck accidents involving these massive vehicles are very likely to inflict catastrophic injuries or death.
Perhaps the trucker who hurt you was texting and driving, speeding or even driving drunk. The truck may have been overloaded or poorly maintained. Any of those factors could lead to a settlement or judgment in your favor – but trucking companies will do everything in their power to pay out as little as possible. At the Law Offices of James Morris, we have the experience and determination to stand up for you.
Many of Buffalo’s 250,000 residents, to say nothing of thousands more visitors, enjoy taking to the open road on motorcycles. Especially in the warm summer months, biking can be a great way to get around. Unfortunately, without the metal body of a passenger car to protect them, motorcyclists are at especially high risk of being severely injured in an accident.
After a Buffalo motorcycle accident, you may think you’re out of options. That’s because insurance companies routinely try to blame motorcyclists for their injuries. We know the truth. We know that many accidents are caused by negligence on the part of a driver, not a biker. Our experienced attorneys will advocate for you.
