I’m attorney Paul Harding with the law firm Martin, Harding and Mazzotti – the Heavy Hitters – here in Troy, New York. Everyday across the country almost one hundred thousand people are injured. Many of these injuries are severe enough to result in hospitalization or even death.

The unfortunate truth is that a number of these cases are caused by someone else’s negligence. The consequence of this negligence may be a personal injury case.

But what exactly is a personal injury case?

Personal injury cases can include – automobile wrecks, dog bites, defective products, medical malpractice, premises liability and many other case types.

If someone else’s negligence has caused you harm, you have the right to seek compensation, a right that should not be ignored.

Personal Injury Attorneys

Personal injury accidents are especially difficult to deal with because they are sudden and oftentimes one is not prepared. At Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, our purpose is to help get you back on your feet and take care of your injury case, so you don’t have to!
Too often, we find that those injured due to someone else’s negligence are unaware of the rights they are entitled to. If you have been injured and you feel it was not your fault, we want to help.


Burn Injury Lawyer

Burn injuries can be very serious and have a long-term impact on your life. Injuries from burns often require medical assistance, which can lead to costly medical bills. Scarring, infections,
amputations and even death can occur as a result of a burn injury. Do not wait to seek help if you are a victim of a burn injury.


Dog Bite

Are you or a loved one suffering after being bit by someone else’s dog? We believe that most dogs are friendly and good natured, however accidents do happen. Dogs can be aggressive for a number of reasons, such as being protective of their owner, territory or even a toy. Our Troy dog bite lawyers are experienced in handling these cases. Relevant information our lawyers look to uncover in these cases includes; if the dog has bitten, chased or attacked in the past, if the owner has had to use a muzzle on the dog or muzzle it around unfamiliar people.
In order to build a successful case, it is important to get as much information as possible about prior signs of aggression. Having witnesses that have seen the dog show “vicious propensity” will aid in pursuing a claim. Examples of vicious propensity in pets include:

  • Biting
  • Growling
  • Snarling
  • Aggressive barking
  • In some instances, the act of restraining the pet
  • If the pet is considered a ‘guard dog’ (or guard pet)

Example Case

Blake Hunt, a high school football player from NY, settled a lawsuit for $8 million for an injury that occurred during a scrimmage at practice.
