The law in New York is well settled that a property owner has a non-delegable duty to keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition to prevent harm to the public. All too many times this duty is breached and someone ends up getting seriously hurt because of an unsafe condition inside or outside a building.
A trip and fall on New York’s sidewalks and streets can cause devastating injuries. In addition to physical injuries that leave you bedridden and unable to work, after a slip and fall accident there is usually no third-party source to cover your immediate medical expenses or to hold you harmless from lost time at work. This is what makes it crucial that you work with an attorney who will fight aggressively for financial recovery, bringing claims for damages to compensate you for all your losses, including pain and suffering. In short, we understand it’s important as your lawyer to make sure that the initial injury isn’t made much worse as a result of the slow turning of the wheels of justice.
There are countless reasons for slip and fall accidents, from inadequate maintenance of sidewalks and stairwells, faulty design of ramps or handrails, to the presence of slippery substances, snow or ice, or debris underfoot. But whatever the cause of your accident may be, we are committed do whatever we can to help you recover all the damages you’re entitled to receive. Accidents are bound to happen and when they do, don’t make a mistake by hiring a lawyer who doesn’t have the right experience, reputation, and passion for justice.
