Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip/trip and fall accidents are some of the most common reasons for premises liability claims in New York. Every year, slip and falls send more than 1 million people to the emergency room in the U.S. It is a property owner’s responsibility to keep a property reasonably free from slip and trip hazards. Failure to do so, resulting in personal injuries, is negligence. If you have injuries from a slip/trip and fall in NYC, contact us to discuss your rights and options.

Why You Need a Lawyer
Slip-and-fall accident cases can be difficult for claimants to win. Insurance companies often try to deny valid claims, delay negotiations, or convince claimants to settle for much less than their cases are worth. Going up against an insurance company without an attorney can hurt your chances of success. A lawyer has experience handling insurance claims adjusters and negotiating for higher settlements. Hiring an attorney can protect your rights and increase your odds of securing fair compensation for your slip/trip and fall.
