BROOKLYN SLIP AND FALL LAWYER
Thousands of people are injured each year in New York City from slip and fall accidents resulting in serious personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence. Injury can result from a poorly maintained sidewalk outside a home, at a supermarket, mall, or on a public sidewalk.
Residential, commercial and municipal property owners and managers have the legal responsibility to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition.
Accidents can result from an unsalted or unshoveled surface following a snowstorm, a deteriorated walkway or a poorly lit stairway. Accidents can also result from poor construction of a walking surface such as a parking lot or sidewalk.
Were You Recently Injured in a Slip and Fall in New York City?
If you have fallen on someone else’s property, you need to be aware of your legal rights. The liability of the property owner depends on the jurisdiction where the accident occurred, as the rules vary.
Usually a property owner is responsible for injuries that occur on the property when he or she knew of the unsafe condition or caused it and did nothing to correct the problem. A property owner can also be held liable if he or she should have known about the danger.
Even if it is discovered that the property owner does not have insurance, it doesn’t mean the case will be dismissed.
Oliveri & Schwartz, P.C. have been able to get big settlements for our clients by going after the uninsured owner’s assets to help recover compensation. We have successfully represented slip and fall and trip and fall cases against private landowners, commercial landowners and municipalities.
Compensation for a slip and fall lawsuit can include medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other costs associated with the injuries.
Slip and fall accident claims in New York require careful investigation. Oliveri & Schwartz, P.C. will attempt to obtain photographs to document the defective condition, acquire statements from witnesses or obtain analysis by a professional engineer who works with us and will testify in court about the defect and its relationship to the cause of the accident and resulting injury.
