Paul Dansker is one of the most trusted names in personal injury and accident litigation in New York. With nearly four decades of personal injury experience and an impressive track record, it is no surprise that Mr. Dansker is the accident attorney that so many injured plaintiffs choose to represent them in their quest for justice. His commitment to treating every client like family to get the compensation that they deserve has earned his practice a far-reaching reputation for excellence.
Mr. Dansker grew up in South Jersey, and his dreams of becoming an attorney took him to Rutgers University. With a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Art History, his entrepreneurial spirit got an early start, as he owned and operated his own business specializing in student travel. However, his true passion was law, so he continued on to complete his J.D. at Brooklyn Law School in 1979.
After taking some time to travel to the Middle East and Europe once he passed the bar, Mr. Dansker returned to New York to take a job as an associate attorney with Weisberg, Sieven, and Mammana. It wasn’t long before he discovered his true legal passion – personal injury law – and he took on a variety of accident-related cases. He began to master the art of trial advocacy, and as he continued to win cases, he developed a solid reputation. His success in the courtroom combined with his commitment to the client led to a growing client base, so he went on to create his own firm in 1986 – Paul Dansker Associates. Later, he would merge his practice to create Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, which now employs 10 attorneys with the same dedication and commitment to accident and personal injury law.
Since 1989, Mr. Dansker has personally won his clients over $100 million in compensation for accident-related injuries, including auto, workplace, construction, and line of duty accidents. Some of his most notable accident recovery cases include:
- Angela F. vs. General Motors – Won $10.3 million for a woman who developed traumatic epilepsy after being struck by a truck.
- Angela R. vs. The City of New York – Won over $6.3 million for a woman who was hit by a speeding police department scooter.
- Jing J. vs. Dollar Rent-a-Car – Won over $6.1 million for a young man who was struck by a speeding rental car as he delivered a Chinese food order by bicycle.
Mr. Dansker understands how important accident and personal injury cases are to each client, and he is committed to providing each case the attention the client deserves.
