Best Personal Injury and Malpractice Search Engine

The New York Torts Weekly (NYTW) search engine has revolutionized legal research for personal injury and malpractice attorneys in the First and Second Departments.

Our simple search form pulls up a list of concise summaries on any issue. Quickly browse the list to find the decisions most relevant to your position. No more wading through lengthy decisions to find out if they apply.

See how it works. Look at a sample search of the often perilously misunderstood statute of limitations for wrongful death.

The list of cases can be pasted into an email to bring to court or into your motion or brief. Every decision has a link to the official decision. It’s like having all your research in your document as you write.

Our Summaries:

  • Are written by attorneys with decades of personal injury and malpractice trial and appellate experience.
  • Contain only the dispositive facts and law.
  • Have clickable links to the full official decisions.
  • Include EVERY personal injury and malpractice case* since 2016 and are updated weekly.
  • Cover only the Court of Appeals and First and Second Departments — the courts that matter most to your practice.
